Why stay here ...
Our CL is in a deceptively rural location but convenient for motorway links for Cheshire, Wirral, Liverpool, North Wales and the ferry ports of Liverpool and Holyhead, Anglesey.
As a field site we offer spacious grassy pitches suitable for caravans and motor homes, electric hook ups and we are supported by solar energy. Wi Fi available and children and pets are welcome. On the site we have assorted free range poultry and other animals. Subject to availability we have free range eggs.
The site is in easy reach of Public Footpaths and Cheshire Cycleways, a bus route to Chester and Wirral and close to the Wirral Line Train network for access to Liverpool.
There is so much to see and do in the area and suggested tourist attractions include:-
Chester - one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain - if you enjoy walking then it's about two miles all the way around the ancient ramparts. Stop to listen to the Town Crier making his midday proclamation. Don't forget to stop and admire the Rows a shopping area containing beautiful Tudor-style half-timbered buildings and is over 700 years old.
Take a city tour on an open top 1914 tour bus or visit Chester Cathedral.
Or visit world famous Chester Zoo which opened in 1931 and now has over 11000 animals.
Grosvenor Park in the city of Chester consists of 20 acres and offers great fun for the whole family including rides on a miniature railway and during the summer months you can take a picnic and enjoy the open air theatre. Theatre goers can also visit Theatre Clwyd in Mold which is just 10 minutes from the CL.
River Dee - the river is 70 miles long and stretches through Wales and Chester. On the banks of the river is a paved promenade with a bandstand, cafes, restaurants and public houses. Why not take a stroll along the riverbank or hire a motorboat, a rowing boat or a pedalo?
Or why not spend a day at Chester races - one of the oldest racecourses in the country and was once the site of a massive Roman harbour.
If you enjoy wildlife then visit RSPB Wetlands Burton.
If shopping is your thing then in addition to Chester city centre you can also visit Cheshire Oaks, a large pedestrianised designer outlet shopping centre which is just a short drive away from our CL. For day to day shopping whilst staying on site there is a Spar and a Co-op nearby plus other major supermarkets.
Suggested attractions further afield:-
Liverpool some 20 miles away is a UNESCO world heritage site with world class attractions and is famous for being the birthplace of The Beatles. Why not take a trip across The Mersey?
Visit the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port where you can unlock the wonders of the waterways and learn about the history of the canals.
We look foward to welcoming you to our CL.

This is a small site that is set back away from a very busy A road. At commuter times the noise can be very distracting. A kind of alarm clock. If the traffic doesn't wake you the 'posh' cockerel will certainly awaken you. This is a smallholding and the owner was very welcoming. There are chickens that come to your door and scurry around the pitches, which are next to llamas and next door, cows. There is a neat dog walk around the site which is fenced in. I am afraid we found the solitary toilet 'The Dunny' to be it's let down. To use it I had to leave the door open to sit down before closing it. I think this might be an area to focus on, if only to make it bigger. It was clean however. The Elsin point was a toilet left in the open next to it. Again clean and functional. The plusses for us were the mains services on each pitch - mains water and grey waste, along with EHU, and the site was fairly level. For the very reasonable cost, this is a fantastic location from which to explore, but not one that encourages sitting out and about the pitch at busy traffic times. Very friendly site and the animals were very amusing in their antics.
We had a really enjoyable sightseeing week there.
