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.

Lovely site to visit the areas of Chester and Wirral

Mill Cottage North
Very good welcome at this CL and easy to find using the directions in the club book. It is situated right on the A540, could be difficult to get in and out as it is a busy road. The Wifi was not working but we were invited to use the house one, until they got a replacement wifi extender after a few days. This site is right on the bus route which stops outside the CL with services to Chester and West Kirby. We took our bikes and explored some of the traffic free cycle routes on The Wirral by driving there and parking up. Some of the cycle routes are very popular on the Deeside of the Wirral

Friendly and welcoming site

Mill Cottage North
We have stayed here twice in April and May 2021 as we were house hunting in Chester. A friendly welcome on arrival coupled with much needed help as we tried to get around the workings of our motorhome that was new to us. We had been unable to check things out due to COVID-19. It is a bit noisy due to road noise and the various animals and chickens! Each pitch has its own supply of water and electricity and disposal for grey water. Turning out of the site entrance is not easy due to restricted visibility. Thank you to Phil and Joanna for all their help..

Really Want To Go Back

Mill Cottage North
Loved this place, greeted by Phil on arrival and I wanted to pay, he just said go and set up enjoy yourselves I'll see you over the weekend. Easy access to a flat level grass pitch with EHU and water. The site is easy access from the M56. Small holding farm with a variety of animals from sheep to alpacas and chickens running round. Sorry that Phil and Jo have sold up, I really hope the owners take it up and carry it on with the same customer care as Phil and Jo. Great friendly CL.

Wonderful

Mill Cottage North
We arrived at this site to a very friendly welcome off Phil,we were only going to stay for 2 nights but stayed for 4. We just love this CL it has a small holding with a variety of animals including alpacas who love carrots. The chickens run around free and are very comical. The pitch is serviced with water electric The only downside is the very busy road outside the site but it didn’t bother us too much we will definitely be back if we are in the area. Thankyou Phil and Jo for being so friendly and laid back and providing such a relaxing place for us to stay.
