Book Your Stay

Coast and Country

Whether you want to explore miles of beautiful unspoilt beaches, take a trip out to a unique tidal island, cycle down the leafy Wirral Way path, or stroll through one of our country parks and nature reserves - the Wirral has an abundance to offer, so much so that we now have our very own Wirral Walking Festival!

Countryside and Parks

The Wirral has over 1,500 hectares of public open space, 20 woodland sites and 4 heathland sites to enjoy.

The Wirral Way and the Wirral Country Park

The Wirral Way, which weaves across the Wirral Country Park, is a fantastic way to explore the local area whether on foot or cycling. The path itself is on the track of the old railway, twelve miles long from West Kirby to Hooton. It has been made suitable for walkers and cyclists and there is a parallel path for horse riders. The scenery and views are spectacular and weave in and out of the coast line.

The Wirral Country Park itself is a place of contrasts. Badgers and Foxes hunt the quieter parts, birds nest in the dense hedges or feed on the berries in winter, and you may see up to 10 kinds of butterfly in summer. Head for the 60 feet high, boulder-clay cliffs and look out over the Dee Estuary and you'll smell the tang of mud and salt, feel the sea breeze and get a sense of space quite unlike the enclosed, inland Wirral Way.

The Wirral Circular Trail

The Wirral Circular Trail is a 35 mile signposted trail, connecting up the public rights of way network with other routes around Wirral. The trail starts and finishes at the Seacombe Ferry Terminal.  The trail can be started at any other point and the route description for each area is subdivided into sections containing anti-clockwise and the clockwise instructions, with useful information for that section.

The Wirral Walking Festival

The Wirral Walking Festival is comprised of a series of exciting and varied walks in the parks, open countryside, coast and heritage sites on the Wirral peninsula throughout May each year. Choose from nearly 200 varied walks - there’s something for everyone!

Coastline and Beaches

Nestled between the River Dee and the River Mersey, overlooking both the Welsh Hills and the spectacular Liverpool skyline, the Wirral has an abundance of beautiful beaches to explore and enjoy – and even has its own tidal island, Hilbre, which can be visited at low tide. There are a number of seaside towns situated along the coastline providing perfect resting spots for walkers and strollers alike!

West Kirby and the Marine Lake

The seaside town of West Kirby is home to an excellent sandy beach – incredibly popular with both locals and visiting families, a thriving Sailing Club and its Marine Lake provides the opportunity for incredible sunset strolls with views over North Wales, sailing and windsurfing, and some excellent fish and chips! It is also home to the much loved Hilbre Island Nature Reserve and neighbouring islands Little Eye and Middle Eye

Hilbre Island

Hilbre Island is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest, owned by Wirral Metropolitan Council who manages the area as a Local Nature Reserve. A popular activity at all times of the year is the walk across the sands at West Kirby to Hilbre Island from where grey seals can often be viewed resting on a nearby sand bank or swimming around the rocks on the incoming tide. When planning this walk account must be taken of the tides – you can find the tide times here.

The Wirral Coastal Walk

The Wirral Coastal Walk is a fantastic opportunity to walk the unique length of the peninsula, enjoying an ever changing landscape. If you’re feeling brave, the walk totals 15 miles – but of course this is no obligatory and at any one point you can dip in or out! The walk begins with views across the River Mersey to Liverpool and the huge docks complex, passing the small seaside town of New Brighton and onto a beautiful beach lined coast against the Irish Sea before the final turn onto the more rural and peaceful countryside overlooking the River Dee. There are many points of interest along the walk so we have dedicated a page with more information. 

Parkgate

The picturesque village of Parkgate, which can be reached via the Wirral Way, is nestled away on the west coast of South Wirral and has been a popular tourist resort for many years. It has a unique ecosystem comprising of a vast stretch of marshland, home to an abundance of birds and very popular with bird watchers. There are also four popular pubs along the front – at one end The Boat House with its conservatory overlooking the marshes, at the other end The Quay popular with families and in between The Red Lion and The Ship. You can find more information on the Visit Parkgate website.
