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.

Good location

Visited this lovely site for one night last October, but we have only recently started writing reviews since joining the club nearly a year ago! We had a lovely time, our first club site since joining. The wardens were very helpful . Everywhere was clean and tidy and all the pitches were good. We stayed one night, but definitely need to come back ! Need to stay for more than one night as its location is ideal! Walking distance of Cheshire Oaks, 20 mins or so to Chester, Wirral country park 1/2 hr drive.

Good as ever

We use the site regularly and have no complaints. We were greeted by name, as the number plate can be read from the office and they typed in this to confirm who we were. Makes for a nice start. The site is flat pleasantly laid out and in very good condition with excellent wardens. We had no children with us but know there is a decent play area for them. Good for the shopping outlet centre and the city and touring in general. There is some road noise but not enough to bother us. A great site but it can be busy so book early.

What a lovely welcome

Our first visit to this site, wonderful welcome from the lady in reception, we had booked a non awning pitch but she gave us a choice of several available pitches, what a lovely start to our stay. Despite being just a short drive from the motorway there is very little road noise, the site is very well laid out and immaculate the facilities are spotless. Will definitely visit again.

Good location for local attractions, exceptionally well kept by friendly staff, but too crowded and too close to motorway noise and busy retail park.

Helpful, friendly hard working staff keep site immaculate. Wheelchair accessible facilities up to usual, consistently good standard found at all Club sites we've used. This is the first time site staff have let us know we can book specific disabled pitches in advance, which is a great tip we will make use of in future. Wish we'd known about it for the last three years we've been members! Well placed as a base to explore Chester, the Zoo, Blue Planet Aquarium, Waterways museum etc. But, big downsides for us were the proximity to motorway noise, the small, overcrowded feel of the site, which was full and really felt it, and the volume of litter dumped by users of local fast food outlets on all the approach routes to the site, which made dog walking a trial. We're therefore not likely to be back, despite how nice the staff were.

For One Night Only

Pleasant welcome to this very easily accessible and well kept site. Toilet facilities very good and very clean, no complaints at all. Good dog exercise area. Right next door to a pub at which there is a discount for CAMC members, other food outlets and retail options nearby.
