Dogs must be kept on a lead whilst on the property as many animals free range and it would be appreciated if they were kept off the furniture. We ask if pets are to be left in the cottage that they are crated or speak to Lesley Whilst we love having furry friends visit and accept that accidents happen we reserve the right to request additional cleaning fees if appropriate.

We booked a Formby Cottage way out of season to go house hunting in the local area with our pet dog in tow. A friendly welcome led to a nose around the stables to say hello to the horses (I had to leave mine at home), and an introduction to the friendliest pig I've ever met. On our second night we got back after dinner and I was met by one of the owners dogs, who was so lovely that I ended up playing fetch for half an hour in the dark. Absolutely recommend Formby Cottages, just remember to take a ball to throw!

Beautiful place to stay, for us it was like a home from home. Lesley and family are all really friendly and welcoming. Wonderful having all the animals around. Our dog did not move from the window the whole time she was in. I loved little Teddy the German Yorkie 💙 Great location too. We look forward to staying there again.

Just stayed a couple of nights in this peaceful location just on the outskirts of Formby. Great for walking, running, cycling animal watching and so relaxing. PS If you have an electric car you can get free charges from Tesco which is less than 1 kilometre away.

The cottages are located on a spacious livery stable yard on the outskirts of Formby, with easy access to the beaches along the coast, Southport and Liverpool. The Cheshire line and Trans Pennine Trail are nearby for great walks or cycle rides. My cottage, Formby Point, a one bed, was well furnished and a welcome pack of fresh milk, butter, bread, cereal, yoghurt, jam and fruit was well received considering I arrived very early in the morning after a long overnight journey! Lesley and Pete are both very friendly and always available if anything was needed. My 10 day stay alone was made all the more more enjoyable with frequent visits from Sadie, their dog, along with all the other animals that are free to roam around the site, Including ponies and pigs!! All in all a great place to stay, especially if you like animals.

A very comfortable stay, with everything we could need. Peter gave us a warm welcome and excellent suggestions for both eating out and sightseeing. We were just sorry we were only there for 2 nights and couldn’t spend longer enjoying the animals. Directions to get there were clear and Lesley made good contact re arrival time etc.

We visit Formby often to see family but this was the first time we stayed elsewhere and will definitely be back. Close to town, such a peaceful and restful spot, great local walks and lovely hosts.

Lesley and Peter were very welcoming to our six riders and their horses. Lesley even provided an expert guide , Jo, for us to show us the best way to ride our horses to the beach. Some of us had never cantered at the water's edge before and really enjoyed taking the horses into the sea. The accommodation 'Strawberry Fields' was perfect for us and near enough to our stabled horses to be able to check on them frequently. Enjoyed the other animals and birds wandering around the grounds too!
