Why stay here ...

Want to visit Chester? Our beautifully-kept lawn site is only 6 miles away from Chester City Centre. We are situated in Dunham-on-the-Hill, which is a small, quiet, historic, conservation village. It's the perfect place to relax after a day's shopping at Cheshire Oaks Outlet Village or a visit to the Blue Planet Aquarium. Both are just 5 miles down the road.

If you love animals, Chester Zoo is a short drive away, as is the internationally renowned Shire Horse Centre and Country Park at Cotebrook. There's a convenient Park and Ride service from here. 

Buses run to and from Chester every half hour. There's a stop 50 yards from our site. Other local attractions include The Salt Museum, The Anderton Boat Lift and The National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port.

The famous Chester Rows, some of which date back to the 13th century, provide a unique shopping experience: there's nothing remotely similar to the Rows anywhere else in the world. To follow in older footsteps, the Roman Walls provide fantastic views of the Chester's Roman Amphitheatre, the Welsh Mountains, the River Dee, and the oldest racecourse in the country: the Roodee. This vibrant racing venue also hosts concerts, chariot racing on Chester Roman Day, and polo matches where you might be lucky enough to spot Prince William amongst the players.

Chester's medieval architectural jewel is the cathedral which dates from 1093 and contains beautiful examples of stained glass, mosaics, and medieval carvings. The cloisters from the original monastery are popular with tourists, as is the only surviving consistory court in the country which dates from the 1630s.

Our site is just 1.5 miles from junction 14 of the M56 which gives easy access to Liverpool, The Wirral, and North Wales. 

Liverpool's Albert Dock plays host to Tate Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime Museum and the International Slavery Museum.  If you're a slave to shopping, Liverpool One provides world class shopping and a wide choice of restaurants.

Port Sunlight, and the Lady Lever Art Gallery are in nearby Wirral. If you want to take the train to Liverpool or Wirral, the Merseyrail service runs every half an hour from Chester Railway Station.

North Wales is within easy reach from our site. Llandudno and Llangollen take about 45mins by car.

Please note: this site is 15 miles away from Warrington.

NOISY SITE

No one was there when I arrived and the amenities were difficult to find. Basically, you are just in a field next to a main road and the traffic noise was too much for me. Had the worst night's sleep of my whole trip because of it. Would not stay again,

Lovely time

We stayed here for 13 nights during the July 2018 heatwave.Beautiful site, well kept and very nice helpful owners.From this site we drove into Chester found free car parking,Liverpool, North Wales. We visited Delemere Forrest 10 miles away great walks need coins for car park. The toilet and shower an added bonus. Recycling on site. Information shed useful - maybe some more up to date information nearest Doctors,Hospital,etc Ate at the Hornsmill pricey but good quality food. A great find we will definitely be back

Back Again

Take care at entrance because the new Club sign could easily be missed. The logo should be much bigger, sign is the same size as before but the new loco is difficult to see, having been before we new where it is. Mrs Lyons came out to us, and showed us our pitch. A lovely lawned site with beautiful flower beds. We once again enjoyed are stay, on this lovely cl.

A convient site to use for liverpool and chester

Fairhaven An easy site to find be careful as the drive is a bit tight. Also remember it is only 10amp and if it trips there is no switch for you to turn it back on, you have to phone the house and ask them to do it, it happened to us and no one there, we had to join our spare lead and connect to a another point till someone came home, we were not the only ones it happened to. Very good to catch the bus to Chester a five minute walk to the stop. There is a Tesco store not more than a mile away, when leaving site turn left then turn right onto the A56 turn right at traffic lights then left after the garage you cannot miss it, over the road to the store turning, is a fish and chip shop and Indian take away. Yet again there is an information shed but nothing to tell you where the nearest A & E, dentist or vets are etc. If you visit Liverpool and go by train it is £5.20 return the 20p covers the crossing on the ferry otherwise it is £10 each quite a saving. You can get a bus opposite weatherspoon pub which takes you to the station.
