Fair for the price.

We stopped overnight when travelling North. We couldn't find the site to start with but realised the directions are for the M62 and not the M6! Could do with a bigger site notice as we drove past it twice! Upon arrival we were met by the owner who was perfectly nice and pleasant and walked up to the site with me to show us our pitch. It was quite small and overhung but as they had had torrential rain it had no standing water like the other pitches. A motor mover is a must to get on and off the pitch. The weather being atrocious we had rain dripping on the roof of the van all night. The toilets and shower were clean, adequate and a bit dated but as you only pay £14 one can't really complain. All in all a good site for stopover but as we didn't research the area we don't know what attractions are nearby. We think it would be quite pleasant in good weather. We would certainly stay again if we were in the area.

Upset

Hi. Sorry I know it’s unusual to leave a review on a site that you have never stayed on, however I feel I must ..........We recently discovered the many benefits of staying on CL sites. So looking for somewhere to stay in October and being in the Warrington Area at my 3 year olds Nephews party decided to take a look at Yew Tree Farm. We don’t know the area very well and seemed to come on the site quite suddenly. There were no signs telling you to stop and report and we couldn’t turn around anyway so we went fwd down a small track, turned around and headed back out. We stopped the car to see if we could spot anybody to make enquiries. A man approached the car and I called out hello to him. He said can I help you? I said yes please we are in the caravan club and we wondered if..... I didn’t get any further because he said very very rudely “it would have been nice if you had stopped at the front!” My husband said sorry we were looking for a sign. Upon which he turned his back on us and walked away 😡 we could not believe the rudeness of this man. Our car is covered in caravan and camping club stickers and my husband and myself are quite decent looking people honest. When we got home I decided I wanted to leave a comment because my husband and myself were quite upset. Looking at the pictures tho I barely recognised it as the same place we had visited. The pictures are 17 years out of date. Come on admin - please check this place out with its rude man and out of date signs and pictures. Not a good representation of your usual high standards at all 😢

Disappointing

Overall about the worst site we have ever stayed on. It felt like camping in a lay-by. The owners were friendly, but the site needs attention. The road access to the site was good, but the farm lane was exceedingly narrow with a greenhouse on one side and a motorhome on the first pitch, whose front end had to be negotiated. Positioning of the caravan on the pitch and subsequent towing off would have been impossible without a motor- mover even for a single-axle 'van. We were warned by the owner to keep the unit within the gravel area to avoid any ambiguity of fault should someone hit us when trying to manoever. The pitch was massively overgrown, dark and with no views- only that of the road and caravan opposite. Just walking from 'van to car involved walking into the hedge. The toilet block , though clean, was mixed sex and very tired, made up of recycled kitchen units. The owner warned us about the shower, but it took far too long to run warm. We gave up trying to use it. At one point in our 3 night stay, there were 8 units on this CL. It was also a very crowded site. I am not surprised that the owner has not supplied a photo. How this site was ever allowed it's Club certification, I cannot see! My advice is to avoid!

Rare site in the area

The reviews are correct. The site needs a lot of TLC. The trees overhang and all visitors agreed with this.It was difficult to get in and out without catching the van. The pitches are small except for the one were on, as we arrived first. The site was full so was cramped. No chance for a twin axle long van. Cables had to pass through all the pitches.The loo block is fair for the price.The house area we had to pass through to see the owners was a shambles of rubbish. What a pity, could be a gem in an area where CL's are desperately needed.

Overnight stop

We made a call early evening to make an unplanned stopover having been stuck on the M6 for a road closure so we arrived feeling fed up. The owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful showing us around at a time of day she could reasonably have hoped to be eating dinner or relaxing. The site was private and quiet in spite of being so close to the motorway. We relaxed watching sheep in the field and listening to the birds. We were able to restart our holiday feeling relaxed. A good site but if you have energetic children it is short of space to play.
