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.

Disappointed

Why has this site got such good reviews!! Just spent 5 nights here and the reviews bear no resemblance to the reality. There are only 3 things going for this site, the location; a good TV signal and excellent toilet and shower facilities. Everything else is rundown, overgrown, dirty and full of rubbish. Pitches are extremely small, not room for an awning and car. Hookups are not on the pitches so hookup extensions are required. Overhanging trees cut out almost all natural light and sun. Indeed we needed lights on all the time we were in the caravan, even when the sun was shining. DO NOT LOOK ON GOOGLE EARTH!! Looks nothing like that. We were not on our own with our views, neighbouring caravanners agreed with us. I can honestly say that this is the worst CL I have stayed on in 25 years of caravanning.

Response from the Club:

The CL Owner has been in touch as he works very hard to ensure everyone has a wonderful time on his site and as such was disappointed to read your review and would like to address your concerns. There are 7 hard standing pitches on the site for members to choose from. Of these, 5 are within a standard 25m cable of the socket, in one case, there is an outlet box on the pitch. The site inspector asked the site to provide longer continuous cables for safety reasons, which they have done.

Several pitches are in excess of 30 foot length. Two have adjacent areas of grass if requested for awnings. Guests advising that they wish awnings are told that steel pegs may be needed.

Please note the site is kept tidy and free from rubbish. The trees offer shade which is often appreciated by guests on the site. One full edge of each pitch is open to the roadway for access. We hope this helps address your concerns and please note if you have any issues when staying on the site please speak to the site owners who will always do their utmost to help where they can.

A good site

As with other rewiewers we were pleasantly surprised at how a site in this part of the U.K. nearer to busy roads and larger cities could be as quiet as it was. Site quite narrow for manoeuvring but all pitches were hard standing. Owners away when we stayed but they had warned us and their family/contacts did drop in to see how we had settled in. Good loo and shower block. Very convenient for Manchester : would certainly return.

Sweet Songs

Just returned from a nine wonderful nights at Mr & Mrs Ferguson’s CL. The site is just off the M62 and M6 so conveniently placed for those wanting an overnight stop. But the site has much more to offer being well placed for visits to Warrington, Manchester City Centre, Salford Keys, the Trafford Centre and Liverpool as well as a number of NT properties. Culcheth is the local village where you’ll find a Sainsbury’s as well as some small shops, pubs, coffee shops ext all just a twenty stroll from the site and there’s a bus stop just outside. The huge Bents Garden Centre is worth a visit about three miles away. The site itself is set in a wooded area behind the farm with hard standing pitches well spaced and the layout means good privacy. The site is a bird spotters paradise although the dawn and evening chorus can be irritating if you’re a light sleeper but the variety of birds is awesome. The five pitches all have electric hookups and there are toilets and a shower in a spotless facility room and there are waste disposal facilities at the entrance. Whether you’re looking for an overnight halt or longer stay to explore the area this popular site has something for everyone.
