Why stay here ...

A pleasant, open and level site bordered by oak trees, Chester Fairoaks Club Site is conveniently placed just off the M53 gateway to North Wales and close to the delightful walled city of Chester. The caravan site is also close to a lovely canal walkway, a local swimming pool, and has two pubs and shops just a short walk away.

Chester Fairoaks Club Site gives you easy access to the wealth of things to see and do in nearby Chester. Take in the sights while relaxing in an open top bus or wander around The Walls to absorb the colourful atmosphere. Immerse yourself in some history and tradition by seeing the town crier, the incredible 900-year old Cathedral and the Roman Amphitheatre. If all that sightseeing builds up your appetite, there are plenty of excellent restaurants on hand and for those who like a spot of shopping, The Rows Shopping Galleries will leave you spoilt for choice. With 12,000 animals to see in 110 acres of gardens, nearby Chester Zoo is a fun day out for the whole family. All in all, the caravan site offers something for the whole family.

Great location. Lovely site.

Lovely site. Just had seven nights there. Spacious pitches. Staff constantly clearing leaves to try to keep the site tidy - not easy! Showers a bit cold at times. Constant drone from motorways and nearby airfield but nothing that earplugs couldn’t sort out. Pub next door - The Rake - cheap and cheerful, always busy, remember to show your CC card to get 20% discount on food, practically giving it away. Visited Chester, always lovely. Go down to the river and walk the promenade round the racecourse. Northwich , very nice, Anderton boatlift amazing to see but no boat trips in November, site only open at weekends. Went back to Crosby to see Anthony Gormleys “Another Place”, always brilliant to see, check the tide times so you catch it when the tide is either going out or coming in to see it at its best. Great food van in the car park. Very welcome tasty homemade soup and bacon barm - just the job after a cold walk on the promenade.The Cheshire oaks outlet is walkable from the site if you want shopping. Fish and chip van twice a week, decidedly underwhelming, tasteless fish, and chips not much better. Seemed like it was all frozen. A good week, we will be back.

Great Site

We stayed for 10 days. Friendly welcome from wardens lots of information leaflets given to us on arrival regarding buses etc. Site facilities normal standard. One issue was water pressure very poor and temperature of water in washing up area only luke warm. Site within walking distance to Cheshire oaks shopping centre. Chester a great place to visit park and ride £2 per person we felt great value. Within easy reach of Liverpool. Tatton Park within driving distance £7 to park but great place for walking and to see deer. Port sunlight well worth a visit. Plenty eating places around Cheshire oaks Rake pub 5 mins from site food ok. Would definitely return to this site

Halloween and half-term visits...

Staying for six nights in our tourer. Our seventh or eighth visit to this site over as many years, an efficient and speedy booking in at reception and we were advised of available pitches as site was very busy. Office was decorated for the upcoming ‘Halloween’ very impressive. Site facilities were as always kept upto the highest of standards considering the numbers of visitors on site. A ‘spooky experience’ was organised for the younger campers which seemed to go down well! A decorated unit competition and the impressive costumes and make up worn by the young visitors ‘trick or treating’ was excellent. The good weather played a part in making another visit to the extended family enjoyable. A good visit to a well run site.

Return Visit

Our second time at this site. Nice welcome by the site staff on arrival. Since our last visit the toilet block has been refurbished to an excellent standard. Also good to see a new style open grill motorhome waste point has also been installed. If you want to leave your motorhome on site there is access to bus services at the Cheshire Oaks Outlet Shopping Centre which is about a mile walk from the site. Be aware that from the site to the main road there is no footpath. There are frequent services to the new Chester Bus Interchange as well as other local destinations. Plenty of places to eat out near to the site. The Rake Inn almost next to the site is good value.

Spooky Halloween

We had a lovely stay at Chester Fairoaks site. Its such a convenient site for excellent motorway connections , close to Chester & Cheshire oaks. Many great places to visit are nearby. We returned again for Halloween & the wardens excelled themselves. They made a lovely event for families by decorating the office & put on a great Halloween tour & performance. Wonderful memories for us all. The club needs inspired wardens like this to maintain your excellent reputation. Thankyou so much.
