A Coastal Location for Family Living

Blundell Hamlet is in the prestigious location of Hightown, served by the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton. This small rural village is only minutes from the coast, and may be accessed via meandering lanes through open fields or along the A565 coast road. Yet, only minutes away, the M58 links you to the M6, M60 and M62 for quick and easy commutes in every direction.

For all Hightown’s tranquillity, fresh sea air and pastoral peace, you’re still only eight miles from the City of Liverpool, and within easy reach of Formby, Ainsdale and the fashionable resort town of Southport.

A Nature Lover’s Paradise

The River Alt joins the sea at Hightown, as recorded in Nicholas Blundell’s Diaries (Volume 3, 1720) with the Northern part of Crosby Coastal Park touching the area at ‘Hightown Dunes and Meadows’.

With a submerged ancient forest, some 4,000 years old, revealed by the ebb tide, this is a nature lover’s paradise. Locally, moves are afoot to acquire nature reserve status for the myriad species you will encounter up close: from wading birds, peregrines, cormorants and merlins, to oystercatchers, knots and sanderlings, as well as myriad butterflies among the naturally occurring dune grasses and colourful wildflowers.

The local village green which is unusually triangular has its own colourful story to tell as local life congregates there.

It is part of the Chelmere commitment to build with respect for all the local heritage and wildlife, we’ve even rehomed sand lizards to ensure them a new safe natural habitat.
