Why stay here ...

Set on a working farm in the Cheshire countryside near the picturesque village of Church Minshull. Our site has stunning views over the Weaver Valley. The canal is just the other side of the hedge and is lovely for walks along.

Our site is a grass site and it has a slight slope. The water is in the corner of the site by the hedge. For empting your chemical waste please walk towards the farm, you will see a mobile home on the left hand side, just walk along side it to the empting point.

Close by is the beautiful town of Nantwich, the historic city of Chester is 40 minutes away as is Manchester. Oulton Park racing circuit is a 20 minute drive.  Chester Zoo is great for a family day out. Leighton Hospital is less than 10 minutes away.

 The Badger Pub in Church Minshull serves excellent food. There are local walks around the area as well as Delamere Forest and the Sand stone Trail.

There are several large supermarkets within 5 miles. The nearest convenient shop is 3 miles away as you head into Crewe. The Village of Worleston has a lovely little shop and post office which bakes all its own pies and cakes. Also at the farm we are a B&B and also have a florist and gift shop.

From the village of Church Minshull, once you are on Cross Lane we are the turning before the canal bridge. Once on our drive which is ½ mile long in total, fork up to the right following the signs, the site is on the left hand side before you reach the farm.

We welcome children and pets but please remember that we are a working dairy farm and there are often tractors about so supervision is required at all times.

Peaceful few days.

Higher Elms Farm
We have just spend a very peaceful three nights overlooking this beautiful countryside. Having just exchanged our campervan we needed somewhere fairly local to our home to make sure all was well with the new unit. As it was October we needed somewhere with electric and opted for Higher Elms as it was a reasonable price and seemed to be able to offer the peace and quiet we wanted, and it certainly did that. The ground was slightly sloping but not too much and so levelling blocks coped with that. It poured down one day but we were able to keep warm inside and appreciate the countryside around. The only downside is the Elsan emptying point which is down the lane toward the farm and not too accessible and could do with being in the camping field but maybe not possible to do this, but this is a minor point compared with the beauty and peace of the site. I'm sure we will revisit when we need another near-hand short break again.

Wonderful views

Higher Elms Farm
Excellent value for money, for amazing views and sunsets. Partly sloping good sized field for 5 caravans, all pitches have a fantastic view of the Weaver Valley. Electric hookup, grass cut regularly, fresh water in corner of field, along with one big biffa bin for all rubbish. The chemical toilet is a bit rural but absolutely fine, it's a raised covered drain about 150yrds down the lane behind the barn, wear sturdy shoes. We had a great week here, good local walks and bike rides and the site is right next to the canal with a narrow tow path. You don't see the canal from the site as its behind a hedge but you do hear the occasional boat chug by. It's a very quiet site with the occasional bit of tractor farm work, but this was only for short bursts of time. Amazing farm shop about 8 miles away "The Hollies in Little Budworth. Couple of nearby drive thru ice-cream farms "Snugburys" & "The Ice Cream Farm, Drumlan Hall". Highly recommend visiting "Cholmondeley Castle Gardens" and "Beeston Castle".

Very good farm CL, great location

Higher Elms Farm
We stopped here over the Easter weekend and the weather was hot and sunny. Its easy to find and right next to the canal. There are great views over the Cheshire country side facing west so we had full sun right until sunset. The local pub is only 15 minutes walk away and serves good beer, good food with great service. As farm CL's go it was nearly perfect for a weekend break at a reasonable price. The only thing I would add is the access to the toilet empting point could be improved with a couple of tonnes of hard-core and a post for the tap. This is however a minor point and we would certainly like to return.

Absolutely lovely

Higher Elms Farm
We stayed here to allow us to visit someone in Leighton Hospital, which is really close by. Access is good and the road well maintained. When we arrived, there was nobody around to welcome us, but we were told that we could pitch anywhere in the camping field. We were the only ones there, so we picked a lovely spot with a belting view. The site has a gentle slope, but ramps can deal with that. We found the site well maintained and the grass had been recently cut. I don't like grass too closely cut, like a billiard table and this was just right. We had a storm during our stay and the ground drained really quickly. There is a small gate giving access to the canal, and we enjoyed a nice walk along the towpath, which actually could have done with a bit of a cut as the grass was long and wet. Obviously this has nothing to do with the site. What more can I say? We loved our stay and have booked to go back this weekend
