Why stay here ...

A spacious lawned, tranquil site on free draining soil, located 400m from nearest road.

Direct access to Whitegate Way, walk, ride or cycle along this ideal traffic-free route.

Site managed by the owners ensures a friendly personal welcome.

The Whitegate Way was the old salt railway line that carried salt for almost 100 years, from the River Weaver up to Cuddington where it joined the Chester to Manchester main line. It finally closed in 1966 and today you can enjoy a picnic at Whitegate Station, the only station along the way. Walk, ride or cycle along the Whitegate Way, an ideal traffic-free link from Winsford to Cuddington, near Delamere Forest Park. Shady wooded cuttings contrast with sunny open embankments, offering spectacular views over the Cheshire countryside.

Whatever the season, Cheshire's delightful countryside provides an ideal refuge from the pressures of everyday life. The story of Culture and Heritage in Chester and Cheshire has been a long and eventful one. It’s a tale told in our many museums, where you can discover how the Romans conquered; why the county is built on salt and about life on our waterways.

For a truly fascinating and fun experience for all the family, Chester Zoo is the ideal destination.

beautiful scenery

We visited this site for Easter break 2017. The CL is attatched to a larger site, Drive through the larger site about 20 units into a smaller area which is the cl. Well laid out , short mown grass and hard standing. Not a big area but ample space. The 5 cl units back on to the Whitegate way. A beautiful walk , paradise for dog walkers, cyclists and joggers alike. Our dog loved the freedom of off lead walking here, yes she is well behaved and well trained. To walk along what was once a train track, is flat and leval, with birds in abundance. The drawback with this site is the 10 amp electric, for £14 a night with no facitlities and the electric going off quite a few times is not good. But the weather was cold especially at night and the site full being a bank holiday. We had a lovely visit to the Anderton Boat Lift, and nature reserve just 7 miles away and Chester just 15 miles away. For a treat we bought Groupon afternoon tea at Patiserie Valerie for £19 for 2 people,very yummy

My first CL, what a great one!

Just stayed two nights at Acorns CL. Very friendly owner who gave me details of walks and the local cafe and pub on arrival.  Cost was £14 per night, which included EHU, awning and dog.  The pitches are level and hard standing, sheltered at the rear by trees. Access from the site straight onto the Whitegate Way, perfect for walks, cycling, running and dog walking.  The area is beautiful, great footpaths and walks.  Highly recommend The Plough pub at Beauty Bank, great food and very friendly.  Access is quite a tight right hand turn, ensure you swing out enough to get through. I recommend this site and would definitely visit again.  Bev x

Midweek stay

An excellent CL with friendly owner, dogs are welcomed and the site is right next to a converted railway track walk. The pitches are all hardstanding but may be considered close to one another by some members. Access is down an unadopted lane which is a little bumpy with a tight right turn into the main caravan site also run by the same owner. A well kept CL which I would recommend to other members.

Great Walking

Recently spent a weekend at this very nice site. Although listed as a CL it is adjoining a larger site with approximately 15 pitches. The CL states adults only but the larger site has a large proportion of seasonal caravans, many of which were occupied by families with children. At the time of booking we were unaware of the larger site and thought we had booked a pitch on a CL. On arrival we discovered that our pitch was on the larger site – this was because the CL was full and actually was not a problem for us. We had a very nice pitch, level hardstanding but we did have to drive over the grass to the pitch. This is the case for all of the pitches on the CL too. The larger site has a big grassy area in the middle where children played football – this didn’t bother us but could be a problem for someone booking what appears to be an adult only site. We were charged £14.00 per night but not sure if this was because we weren’t on the CL. Very warm welcome from the owner who encouraged us to stay longer on Sunday to make the most of the day. The site is next to a working farm so there is some early morning activity with large farm vehicles driving along the access lane but this really wasn’t a problem. The best feature for us was the easy access onto the Whitegate Way – a 6 mile dismantled railway line – just through the gate, straight onto the path. Lots of options for walking along the trail with diversions off to make circular walks. The site is midway along the trail so walks can be done in either direction. No toilets or showers so you need to use your van’s facilities. Good weather made the weekend very enjoyable. Very relaxing site with friendly owners. Will definitely return and would recommend to anyone wanting easy walking without any need to drive once on site. The dog enjoyed it too – he came home exhausted!
