Why stay here ...

Enjoy the beauty of the countryside and the delight of the nearby town of Congleton.

For Club members, this Certificated Location (CL) makes a great place to escape to - in the countryside yet with all the convenience of being close to the shops and amenities offered by the town of Congleton, not to mention the advantage of being only a few steps from the pub and inviting restaurant.

This is a quiet site in a peaceful setting, offering five well-maintained grassy pitches with mains hook-up, water, chemical toilet disposal point and refuse bins. The area is very well kept and planted with a delightful selection of shrubs and flowers, making it more like a private garden than an average CL. It is screened and sheltered by mature trees at the back, and looks out over the pub garden to one side, and to open countryside to the other side and to the rear

Access to the CL is excellent, via a tarmac drive running between the pub itself and the adjacent Cottage straight off the main road. 

There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, with National Trust properties at Little Moreton Hall and the beautiful Biddulph Grange Gardens, the historic stately homes of Capesthorne and Gawsworth, and of particular  interest  to children and teenagers the fascinating Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope and Visitor Centre with its interactive displays and planetarium. Also, we are bordering on to Staffordshire, where we have Spode and Wedgewood pottery for the adults and for the children Alton Towers Theme Park, Water World plus theatres, cinemas and the Potteries Shopping Centre.

Please note that dogs need permission by prior arrangement.

Great stopover attached to a nice pub.

Easy to access and get booked in. We had a choice of pitches, but a few were sloping. We ate at the pub one day, very nice food at the right price and staff were friendly. Yes, there is only 1 toilet for the CL which is also available to tents on the adjacent field, but we had no problem with that and both that and the showers were cleaned regularly. Would visit again if in that area.

Expected more going by the description.

This is a small CL site, the grounds seemed well looked after and the scenery was very pleasant especially if you hitched up adjacent to the fields were you could watch the sunset on an evening. Unfortunately all that was spoilt by the fact that the 5 pitch CL site was right next to a busy campsite that housed around 20 tents all of which shared the single toilet and shower that was on the CL site. With all these people using the one toilet, it soon ran out of paper and hand towels and all the time we were there, I didn't see anybody cleaning the facilities. I think in the current climate with covid, more care should have been taken to keep them clean. The Wifi seemed to be restricted to the pub itself and as soon as you got onto the site there was no signal, not a missive issue but something worth noting. Obviously, this can not be helped, but the site is right on the A34 and there constant road noise, even into the early hours of the morning.

After Lockdown

Waggon and Horses
Stayed here just after lock down, when we were allowed to escape.Landlord and landlady were both very good and helpful, nothing was too much for them and there staff. The pub was clean and well run and covered all the bases to comply with covid 19. The site it self is clean and well kept. the entrance to site it self is a little tight for larger vans ( eg ours was 8ft wide). Access from the road is easy and safe. Its and excelent site with very good owners, A site that has to be visited.
