Why stay here ...

Christopher and Patricia welcome you to "Down on the Farm" CL. The location is ideal for those wishing to explore the Cheshire countryside by foot or by bicycle. Within the area there is an abundance of wildlife including owls, buzzards and many more. In the village of Kingsley (0.3 mile) there is a Co-op and a local pub. Walking distance from the CL is the Kingsley Mill Cafe.

Frodsham, Chester Zoo and Chester are a short drive away. The Delamere Forest and local fisheries are also close at hand. For those members who enjoy horse riding, the CL has stables available for members to use. This may incur a small fee.

As this is a working farm, Christoper and Patricia are more than happy to provide guided tours of the farm showing the different farm animals and activities that may be of interest, especially for the children. For 2021 it is hoped that the play and toy garden will be open as well as the new toilet block, pets corner and BBQ. There is a dog run available.

A lovely spot for an Autumn break

We've just spent 3 nights at this lovely little site. We were met by Christopher on his tractor who kindly suggested we park the 'van next to the hardstanding area. This made a huge difference of keeping the floors clean. The gift of half a dozen eggs and a useful welcome letter was a really nice touch. Patricia met us later and gave us some good ideas for walks nearby. It's a really handy spot to explore local places such as Delamere Forest, which is in walking distance, and the Anderton Boat Lift is just a short drive. Both are great for dog walking which is a must for us. The local village has a well stocked Co-op / Post Office and a pub. We can definitely recommend the site, although we did almost drive past as there isn't a CL sign up yet, so you need to be on the look out for the entrance.

Open friendly site

We were made very welcome by Chris and Patricia and were delighted to receive a gift of 6 freshly laid eggs. The field was large, mainly flat and well mown with easy access to water and waste disposal. There were plenty of animals to see and we enjoyed a free farm tour including the opportunity to stroke some of the animals and hold a cockerel. The owners were very attentive and helpful throughout. We discovered some interesting walks from the site including down to the river and also enjoyed nearby Delamere Forest. The approach road was rather narrow but otherwise this is a lovely CL and well worth staying on.

PERFECT

Just returned home from this lovely CL. Not a lot I can add to the previous reviews which describe it perfectly. We absolutely loved it - the owners Chris and Pat work so hard and yet take the time to welcome the guests and could not be more helpful. When you consider that they have only been open a few weeks, they are remarkable. We loved being being able to visit all the animals and have an insight into life on a farm. Can't wait to return and cannot recommend this CL highly enough. Also it was so nice to meet the chickens who provided our eggs.

How Lovely!

We've just stayed 8 nights in total. Welcoming, peaceful, relaxing, with engaging owners, it's a star of a CL. Plenty to do if you wish - Delamere Forest for walking/cycling, a day in Liverpool, walks from the site are all good examples. Plenty of space on the CL too to spread out. There's even some very unobtrusive plane spotting, twice in the distance we saw a Beluga Airbus approaching Chester Airport. There are some very charismatic horses and animals which add to the experience, particularly if you have children. So privileged to stay here and also to see how recreational activities can support rural activities.

A little gem of a CL

This is truly a GEM of a CL site situated in the Cheshire countryside, the owners where so welcoming bringing fresh eggs and offering a tour around the petting corner of rescued animals the children loved the lop eared rabbits, what it lacks in facilities it more than makes up for in tranquility, welcome and location. A return is already planned
