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.

Nice little site in need of general tidying up

Nice little site close to many places to visit,Congleton, Macclesfield. Cleanliness to showers/toilet & pub could be improved otherwise would be a perfect place to visit.

Feels a bit uncared for?

Agree with a lot of previous reviewer’s comments. Very sloping, problem for motorhomes - we just about got level, but using a large quad level ramp. Toilet ok, but given that no paper supplied the number of empty roll ends suggests it’s a while since it’s been cleaned! Pub okay, and friendly, but no more. On leaving we were blocked in by a delivery wagon in the site entrance- fair enough that the driver was on a tacho break, but the landlord didn’t seem very bothered or even to apologise. Couldn’t recommend.

A strange CL.

A strange CL and not one we normally choose. We chose this one for visiting our son so spent a week here. We arrived to clay pigeon shooting in the next field which happens on the first Sunday of the month. It only lasted until about 3pm. On the day before we left there was live music in a marquee in the opposite field although it only lasted two hours and had finished by 11pm. The field is sloping all ways so it is difficult to get the van level but with a mover its made easier. EHU and decent disposable facilities. There is a shower and toilet and from the queueing to use them every morning we were the only ones using our onboard shower/toilet. Funny seeing people traipsing off to the toilet wearing their jimjams with bog roll under their arm. A decent dog walk if not very scenic due to a high embankment alongside a quarry. Road traffic is a bit noisy from the busy A34 but you get used to it. At £14pn it is dear compared to nicer CLs we've been to which are cheaper. If a lot of what I posted seems negative it is but funnily it is a site we liked and will definitely go back when visiting our son.
