Why Louis chose Birkenhead
A secluded and romantic setting for your holiday, the cottage is also within easy reach of delightful Oxton Village which offers a choice of shops pubs and excellent restaurants - including the Michelin starred Fraiche (prior booking essential). In the living room there is a large and comfortable couch to curl up on as well as a log burning stove, high speed broadband and Sky TV. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. There are two bedrooms with plenty of storage space for cases and clothes and with a verandah with table and chairs off the master bedroom. Away from the cottage, the Wirral offers a wealth of beautiful places for the whole family to walk and enjoy from historic Birkenhead Park, to country parks and coastline. All within easy reach. Great for walking the dog. Further afield, by car, public transport or the famous Mersey Ferries, guests will easily find the attractions of Liverpool’s waterfront, shops and museums. The cottage is comfortable, cosy and private. We think it is the ideal location for a quiet romantic getaway or as a base for the family to explore the Wirral countryside and the attractions and shops of Liverpool.

Oxton, where Sophies Retreat is situated is on the Wirral peninsula which is surrounded by water, the rivers Dee and Mersey to the South and North and the sea to the west. There are sailing clubs and a boating lake to the west in Hoylake and West Kirby.
We have several excellent golf clubs including the Royal Liverpool at Hoylake.
Wirral is blessed with many great areas for walks. Just around the corner is The ARno and Oxton Fields for local dog walking. Other places to walk are Royden Country Park, Dibbinsdale Nature Reserve and the historic Birkenhead Park (where there is also a children's playground) as well as several parts of the shore.
Liverpool is easily accessible by ferry, train, bus or car where there are many attractions and good shopping.
