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.

Amazingly quiet considering location

We had 3 lovely nights here. Small site but well secluded. Very friendly owners who went out of their way to help us with local transport information. Very clean loos and shower. Despite being off the main road from Warrington it was very quiet. Bus stops very close by. Easy to get to nearby places as good bus interchange at Leigh and Warrington. Access a bit tight for long vehicles but possible. Will be returning. No need to worry about need for long cable for electrics, owner will supply.

Decent stop over.

My family and I used this CL as a stop over for our journey to the lakes and it did the job fine. The toilets were clean and it was it a good location just off the m6. We found the site to be a little tight in terms of getting in and out and turning but it was manageable. You may also need a long hook up cable for certain pitches. It had been raining constantly for days but the site held up well...perhaps if the day we spent there was not as grey as it was I may have seen it differently and scored it higher. I think the best review you can give is if you would use the site again and I certainly would.

Convenient CL for a short stay in Manchester area

This site may not suit you if you need finely manicured grass and neatly trimmed hedges between each pitch, but don't be put off. It has very good motorway access (M6/M62) but is in a quiet semi-rural area. From our caravan window we saw horses, rabbits and a pheasant. The site owners are very friendly. There is a small block housing two toilets and an electric shower - these were very clean. I think access would be a bit tight for longer vans, but our 4 berth was fine. The village of Culcheth has plenty of facilities including supermarkets and a very good Thai restaurant, and there are some fishing lakes nearby which do a good cooked breakfast (not just for fishermen!) We have already stayed twice and would definitely stay again when back in the area.
