    We love coming here, yes it is busy of you use the main carparks and stick to that side of the beach/woods. However, if you park elsewhere it is a lovely place, nice views from the top of the dunes, l...  more »

  • Always a great walk with the dogs. It's nice to go through the woods and on to the beach and then go back through the woods into the squirrel sanctuary and back to the car. Only downside is the cost of parking there... Not cheap!
  • Gets very busy these days. Many dog owners sadly failing to keep their dogs under control and on a leash. A pretty place gradually being ruined.
  • Easy access by car and train. National trust property. Pay to park only. Squirrels in the wooded area. Close to the beach. Huge beach when the tide is out. Toilets by the entrance. Perfect for taking a picnic.
  • National Trust area to help protect the dunes and pine forest which are home to some rare wildlife, such as - Red Squirrels, Sand Lizards and Natterjack Toads. National Trust do a great job in maintaining the area. Pay to park available. Great for day out with the family. Forest walk to the dunes, which leads down to the beach. No café or shop, so taking picnic is advised. Sometimes an ice cream van is situated in the car park.
  • Formby woods is a place to relax as you walk. Smell the air and listen to the creaking trees on a windy day. It's a great place to be anytime.
