Restfull

Stayed here from Fri 31st Jan until Mon 3rd Feb. A lovely well-kept site with grass pitches on good solid ground (even with all the rain there has been recently). The woods behind the pitches although out of bounds seem to be a great home for birds and other wildlife. Toilet block basic but kept very clean. The site is quite near to the Runway for the Aircraft factory and there was some noise from the planes coming and going on the Friday afternoon, but with no aircraft over the weekend. If you keep an open mind about the plane noise its great to watch them come and go. The site is a great base for visiting Chester, The Wirral and North Wales. Will defiantly stay here again. Chris H

Chester CL for Christmas Market and Shopping

Stayed 4 nights arrived Tuesday 19/11 and left Saturday 23/11. The owners weren't in when we arrived but I was told by someone in the house to pitch up and the owner would see me later. I tried every day to contact the owner but had no reply so I left an envelope on Saturday when we left with cash in it. It is a working farm I saw the "famous" great dane and the black lab, neither were any trouble at all. The drive to the site is I estimate about 400 yds tarmac for maybe 100 yards the remainder was a dirt track heavily compacted, several small potholes, nothing to worry about. There are several fields with horses and an exercise/training paddock and it was nice to see the horses. The pitch was grass with EHU. The facilities area comprises a sink with hot and cold water with doors leading to the gents and ladies. The facilities were kept clean and tidy, the showers were pay or token, plenty of information how to use the showers. One shower room seemed to need a token - difficult if you never see the owners. The waste water emptying point was about two foot high - difficult to lift a full wastemaster but ok for a bucket. The caravan area was well kept with short grass with EHU's. A big plus point is the proximity to the Park and Ride quite a short drive and for me about a twenty minute walk (no pavment) , the park and ride is £2 (no concessions) cheaper than a car park though. A short drive to Cheshire Oaks shopping outlet. We liked the site and the location and would return.

Excellent little site

Have just had 3 nights at this quiet and peaceful ( if you don't mind listening to the Owls hooting at night and the woodpeckers drumming in the morning) sight. The welcome we received from Peter was both excellent and very informative with him letting us know where all the local amenities and shops were ( with a hand drawn map, which was very concise) and telling us how to get to the Park and Ride £2 each return ( a 15 minute walk from the site) for Chester Town Centre. A taxi back ( as we had missed the last bus !! ) was £7.50 The amenities on site we exceptionally clean and the showers hot and the pitches were well marked and of great space I would fully recommend this site if your looking for a site local to Chester and like the peace and quiet.

excellent little cl site

What a great little CL site, in a great position and excellent value for money. We booked a 2 night stay as we had tickets for the zoo and wanted somewhere nearby. The directions that came with our booking confirmation were excellent and the welcome and information provided when we arrived were just as good. Mr and Mrs Siddorn have put together a useful map of the immediate area that shows where the park and ride is along with the local amenities. They were also able to give us really good advice on using the park and ride. The park and ride is a 10 minute (ish) walk down to the end of the lane but what a great service. We got the bus into Chester - a very short journey - then changed buses straight away with no wait - to get the other park and ride to the Zoo - again a really short journey - followed by a 5/10 minute to the zoo entrance, the return journey was just as easy and all for just £2 each for the day! There is also another bus that runs to and from Chester bus station that stops by the park and ride at the end of the lane that runs later in the evening - great if you want to go to Chester in the evening. Local taxi back from The Little Owl pub was less than £7, where we had a tasty, good value meal with great service - it is an hours walk from the site to get there but the pint was worth it when we arrived! The facilities on the site are basic but clean and the showers were lovely and hot. Can't recommend this site enough for it's location, value for money and the friendly and helpful owners, we will definitely use again.
