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.

Lovely Site!

This was our first trip in our new Motorhome and for a wet and windy March weekend we picked the right site. There were three pubs within walking distance (one only a few yards away) and two more further down the lane. The lane does have street lights so I don't understand the comments about it being dark? We ate is all three and the food was lovely (The Rake has a TV so we were able to watch the Rugby, the Old Hall is a carvery and there is a Harvester). There are also many other places to eat on the way to Cheshire Oaks and in the centre if you prefer that sort of thing (McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Express). The shops at Cheshire Oaks were only a 15 minute walk away (turn right at the end of the lane and left at the lights). There is also a large Sainsbury's for supplies. We found the staff on site very helpful and welcoming and the site is clean and pleasant. We didn't notice any noise from aeroplanes or motorways? We will definitely return for another visit.

Handy Winter Stay

Stayed here many times over the years. We we there during storm Gareth it’s was a bit wild at times! The site is handy for Chester just a short drive away. Cheshire Oaks is ten minute walk away and the Boat Museum is also a short drive. The site is very close to the motorway so handy for arrivals and departures but the noise is constant. Clean facilities and although some pitches are in need of attention, as they flood, the site was quiet we had plenty of dry ones to choose from. Great welcome from friendly wardens .

Perfect for Motorhome

We stayed for two nights in early February, our first time here. Even in wet and windy conditions the drive across the Pennines was easy. The site was as you would expect immaculately kept and staff very welcoming and hospitable. For a motorhomer with no other transport the site is ideal. There are three pubs serving food within ten minutes walk, Cheshire Oaks shopping development is again about ten minutes walk, with a range of restaurants and buses leave from here to both Chester and Liverpool and indeed to Chester Zoo. A huge Sainsburys supermarket is adjacent to the shopping complex also making it unnecessary to drive off site once set up unless you should wish to. Just make sure to carry a torch if walking Rakes Lane in the dark as it is unlit and without pavement. Altogether I would highly recommend the site and will definitely return.

Good site

First time that we have used a caravan club site after joining a month ago. Wanted a site that was less than an hour away from home at this time of year so this was a good choice. We stayed for 2 nights. Our pitch backed onto a farmers field with horses in so this gave it a countryside feel. Good location for Chester - 20 mins in car and within 10 mins walk of Cheshire Oaks. Nearest pub is located about 400 yards away ( The Rake) which allowed dogs in so ideal. Site was very clean and well maintained and the toilet/showers were spotless. There is a secure dog area which was useful. Not sure what it was like walking the dog away from the site. It's worth noting that most of the retail shops on Cheshire Oaks allow dogs in. Staff were very helpful and friendly and this was highlighted on the Friday evening when I ran out of gas. Within 10 mins the matter had been sorted with a new bottle purchased on site. I have seen the various comments with regards the lane outside the site, you just need to be cautious when using it. It felt good to get out in the caravan again after a couple of months. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and we would stay here again.

1 night Stopover. First visit

Just a quick stopover. Good location. Short walk to Cheshire oaks shopping mall and sainsburys and good walking access to a number of pubs and restaurants. The road from the site to the main road didn’t feel very safe at night though as there is no footpath. Would go back. I used to live in the area so I know there is a lot to do nearby. Didn’t use any public transport while there but did walk to the shopping centre.
