With scenic views, comfortable rooms, and exceptional facilities and services, the gorgeous Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa will sweep you away into a memorable luxury countryside experience.


It is located in Southport, a large seaside town in Merseyside, England. The Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa, is set within the beautiful British countryside and is a 45-minute car journey away from the excellent shopping destinations and culture that the city of Liverpool offers. Nearby you will find Formby’s National Trust Beach, the spectacular Anthony Gormley statues on Crosby Beach, and the Red Squirrel Reserve. You get the best of both worlds while staying at the Formby Hall, enjoying both the tranquil nature and countryside and the ability to explore the wonders that Liverpool has to offer.

Best Time To Visit

Seasons are mild, with quite cool summers along with gentle winters. The major tourist seasons are during the late Spring and Summer, as this is the time when you get the best weather. You can expect to find that the average maximum temperature between June to September is 19°C. Early Autumn is less crowded, but still with the chance of good weather. British weather can usually be very unreliable, and therefore the temperature and rainfall can fluctuate greatly.

How To Get There

If traveling to and from London, a car journey via the M1 and M6 will take approximately 4 hours. Additionally, trains and coaches are available at affordable prices and can be boarded from Euston station; both forms of transportation can also take a rough approximation of 4 to 5 hours. There are two airports less than an hour away from Southport, including the Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL), with major operations such as RyanAir and Easy Jet, as well as Manchester International Airport (MAN), operating more than 200 destinations. The city of Liverpool is also a 45-minute drive away from the town of Southport.
