Why stay here ...

A pleasant, open and level caravan site in Cheshire, 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.

Well run site, easy to get in with helpful staff

Chester Fairoaks Caravan Club Site
Arrived on a hot sunny day, the staff got us quickly through and we pitched up easily. It's a nice site but a little tight on space. The facilities are very well looked after and a central to the site. It seems a very popular site and will be back as well located for the surrounding cities and shops.

Getting around

Chester Fairoaks Caravan Club Site
Very central site to get to Chester , Liverpool and Cheshire oaks , wanted to leave an in-depth report on getting to these areas .You will need the x1 bus to get to Chester and Liverpool , this bus stop you will find at Mc carthur Glen outlet opposite the Clark’s shop . It’s about a 7 minute walk from the site , not too far . Go up the lane from the site , the harvester pub and restaurant will be directly in front , turn right , walk straight down and you will then see the large sign for MacArthur glen outlet , ……..go in towards the outlet and beer left again for the outlet , it’s sounds confusing but it’s not when you see it . Look for the Clark’s store and in front you will see the yellow bus stop , they run every half an hour , get the x1 not the 1 , as it’s a direct bus . Chester is roughly 15 mins ,Chester zoo , 6 mins , Liverpool 1 hour , buses run quite late so you can drink and be Merry in either place and come home safe . If not , two restaurants are at the top of the lane , and lots more in the outlet centre or a short walk further in the coliseum area , where they also have a cinema . For shopaholics the outlet is to die for . Hope this helps .

enjoyable

Chester Fairoaks Caravan Club Site
Stayed at fairoaks for 5 nights. It's a lovely clean and quiet site, as it was mid term only saw a couple of children. It's a pleasant walk up the lane to a busy main road, but need to be careful as no footpaths. A reasonable walk to the shopping outlet, where you will find plenty of places to eat, also there is a Vue cinema. Also a massive amount of shops on a very large area. Manage to find bus stops at the outlet, which are very good. Chester city is a beautiful city to visit, outstanding buildings. Definitely intend to stay at fairoaks again in the future.

Excellent site and location

Chester Fairoaks Caravan Club Site
My wife and I stayed on this site for the first time last week (end of May 2021) and found it to be very pleasant. The staff (Cheryl) was lovely and helpful on all contacts we had witrh her. The site is well laid out and very clean and tidy, and is ideally located for trips out into Chester itself, Liverpool and North Wales. During our mid week visit there were no or very few children, but I would say about 80% of people staying had a dog/s. It is a shame that whilst there is a dog walking area, some dog owners just opened the caravan door in the morning and let the dogs out to poo on the grass (even though they came and picked it up). As we have young grandchildren we are concious that we dont want them playing where dogs have done there business. Other than that, all good.

Plenty to see and do

Chester Fairoaks Caravan Club Site
With the huge Cheshire Oaks outlet village just up the road, as well as the historic city of Chester and the big draw - Chester Zoo - one of the world's top conservation zoos, it's difficult to get bored here. Just off the motorway network, but up a country lane, it's quieter than you think, and well organised.
