Barford House Apartments offer a luxurious bolt-hole from which to enjoy all that Southport and the surrounding area has to offer.

Barford was bought on the 1st April 2008 and from day one we have taken it on a long journey, every apartment has undergone refurbishment, the house looks great! We offer five holiday apartments in all – two of which are ground floor apartments. All are self contained and furnished to a high standard. Whether you want to stay for a week or a weekend give us a call and we will try our best to accommodate you. We offer discounts for OAP’s, we welcome Families, Conference delegates, Golfers and overseas visitors. We do not take hen and stag parties sorry. Barford has many regulars who return two and three times a year this speaks volumes to us.

We arrange taxi pickups from Liverpool or Manchester airport for guests travelling from abroad. We pick up essential items for breakfast for those on night flights. Guests pay us for these when they arrive.

Barford has two wheel chairs, shower stools. Bath chair, bed rail, walking sticks. wheeled tripod walker and toilet frame for those elderly guests that struggle. We do this free of charge.

We also have travel cots, high chair and bed guard for little ones.


No matter what the star rating or designator, you can find accommodation which excels in hospitality and service and has top scores for bedrooms, bathrooms, and cleanliness. In summary, a high star rating means top quality in all areas and all the services expected of that classification of accommodation.


I own Barford House holiday apartments in Southport with my Husband Kevin. My passion is gardening as you can see from the photos of Barfords gardens. I attended an RHS gardening course for 18 months and passed with a distinction. I have entered the gardens into Sefton In Bloom 2009 winning First Prize. North West In Bloom for the last six years winning Gold & Best In Show. Southport Flower Show awarded our floral displays First and Second prize two years running.

Last year I was one of a handful of people from all over the country given an award by Britain In Bloom for the volunteer gardening work I do along Lord St Southport. As an avid member of the community, this is something I’m passionate about.
