Why stay here ...

CL of the Year Award 2017 - Joint 2nd Place

Welltrough Hall Farm is situated just outside the village of Lower Withington in the beautiful Cheshire countryside. The site offers peace and quiet with stunning views overlooking our 270 acre farm and beyond.

We are an adult only site with dogs welcome providing they are kept on a lead. The pitches are hardstanding, spacious and generally flat with great views and all have 10 amp electric hook ups, water and a grey waste drain. There is a shower, toilet and elsan emptying point on site as well as a well stocked information shed which also contains a coin operated washing machine and tumble dryer. We have a 3km mown grass walk around the farm with numerous bins for dog walkers. A free dog shower is provided for cleaning those mucky paws when back at the site! There is also a public footpath that runs through the far field on the farm as well as numerous walks in the area.

We have fully serviced pitches.

There are two pubs within a short walk, both providing good food. Our site is well positioned for easy reach to local shops, banks and eating out with Congleton, Holmes Chapel, Knutsford, Macclesfield and Alderley Edge all a short drive away. Other places to visit include Jodrell bank telescope, Tatton Park, Redesmere Lake, Little Moreton Hall, Arley hall and gardens plus much more!

For more information or to book please visit our Website. You can also find us on Facebook.

Excellent Site

We stayed for 2 nights 8 & 9 Sept. It is a working farm, and, although there are signs with a contact number should you need to speak to someone, there was no one onsite and we were left to find a pitch and pay as per instructions given in the confirmation email, which was fine. Our first impression of the site was why on earth is it only a CL and not Affiliated. There are 5 or 6 CL plots which are cordoned off, and granted do have the best views on the site, however there are about 13 other plots all of which cost the same (£20pn) are a very good size, fully serviced and hard standing, and no matter where you are the views are amazing and the site is the most peaceful place we`ve ever stayed. The CL plots were all taken so we pitched up on plot 9, which was great, with a beautiful view and easy access to all facilities. There are several toilet and shower units, which are extremely clean with plenty of hot water, and even had music playing, and an information hut with an honesty fridge containing milk, eggs etc. The owner (Nick) has even supplies a coin operated washing machine and dryer, something I have never seen on any other CL, normally you`re lucky to have EHU, never mind anything else. I noticed in a previous review that there was a complaint that the EHU is only 10amp. We have large twin axle van, with lots of electric items and we had no problem at all, and the FREE internet was also sufficient, despite the site being almost full.. We walked to the local pub (Red Lion), and again Nick has gone above and beyond by mowing a path through his land, which is clearly marked, and despite the horrendous rain prior to our stay, was not boggy and only took 5 minutes to walk. The site is extremely well maintained and all the grassed areas are cut short and very neat. There are chickens, goats and alpacas (fenced in) on the site and they are delightful. This is one of the nicest, well kept sites we have ever stayed on, we would totally recommend it to anyone, and would like to thank Nick (who we bumped into in the pub on our first night) for a wonderful stay. As previously stated I also think that this site should be upgraded to Affiliated due to all the extras that Nick provides.

Excellent Site

We used this site as a one night stop over en route to the Lakes. Very easy access from the M6 and although we never saw the owner, the on line booking system worked just fine. I can only reiterate all the previous positive comments with just a couple of observations. Be aware that the electricity is only 10 amp and secondly, even though we were booked onto the CL, we were actually sited on the 'other' site. Once booked, the T's and C's inform you that there is no guarantee that you will be on the CL (they are, in my opinion, the better pitches although the remainder are very good). So it begs the question - did we stay on an 18 pitch CL or did we stay on a commercial site? I'm still not sure.

Great CL site great location

As its a working farm we were left to check in ourselves as per instructions given in email, although its a CL site there are about 17 plots all fully serviced and hard standing. The location is peaceful and relaxing with wonderful scenery and Jodrell Bank Telescope in the distance. There is a fantastic 3 km walk round the farm which is well marked out which we took 2 hrs to get round enjoying the scenery and the harvesting going on. The Red Lion Pub is a short 10 mins walk across the field which we went to for a long afternoon lunch, the Real Ales were well keep and the food excellent Pub grub with a touch of style. I did read some report about the friendliness of the Landlord but we found very friendly and helpful with local places of interest and a Taxi we need to visit the Bluedot Festival at Jodrell Bank the following day. A couple of things to note we 1 the farm shop, we were expecting a shop with various product but you had to see Nick the owner and he would get you what you wanted from the freezer, we had 2 fantastic steaks but with Nick selling all his beef I'm not sure the shop is going to continue so contact him first so you aren't disappointed there is nothing for you to BBQ, as mentioned above we were going to the Bluedot Festival at Jodrell Bank which Nick said was a 20 mins walk away, we went to check that out the day before and it took us 1 1/2 hrs to the main gate so on the day got a taxi there and back. All in all a excellent stay great site, lovely walks and plenty in the area which can all be found in the information shed. Milk and eggs can also be collected and there is a number to text to order your papers for the following day.

Great CL Site, easy Access to M6.

W have stayed here twice, site is immaculate and has great views over the countryside. Great Dog walks from site. The CL site is next to a small site run by the same owners but it was very quiet. The CL has its own WC and Shower, but you can also use the WC and Shower on the small site next door. All pitches are Serviced and fairly level. Macclesfield is 10-15 mins drive away, Jodrell Bank Telescope about 5 mins drive.

Very good but not a typical cl

We have used this site before and since our last visit more caravan pitches have been added, but still overall the site is very good. Don’t know how this site can class it’s self as a cl as in the “cl” fenced off area 6 vans were there!! All the facilities are a good standard and all the pitches are fully serviced and well maintained. For us the cl shower needs updating but you can use any of the 2 others. The owner has done a really good job with the whole site and is obviously expanding into pods, huts etc. as well. Good price for this quality site. Not really a typical quiet 5 van cl but we will use it again.
