Why stay here ...

Please Note: Pitches for 17-30 August 2020 inclusive will be released shortly.

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.

Great for shoppers but otherwise very disappointing

If you want easy access to Cheshire Oaks shopping great, other than that dont bother. The canal walk is a good 45 min minimum walk away along a busy road with no footpath, not safe for dogs & definitely not next to the site. Both nearby pubs mentioned are closed. Nearest pub is the Harvester & is what it is. Dog walk on site is nothing special either. On the plus side staff are lovely and very friendly. Facilities what you'd expect.

Great Site, Great Location

The first thing to note is that access is straightforward from a minor road. The pitches are spacious and generally seemed level with at least two service points. The facilities are modern, pleasantly warm and kept clean. All the wardens I spoke with were very pleasant , helpful and happy to chat. Considering the amount of rain that we've had they did an excellent job of maintaining the site. The site is well located for Chester, Liverpool and even Manchester. An excellent bus service is available just 10 minutes from the site and Sainbury's, Asda and Aldi are all less than two miles away. I had a great time here and achieved far more than I expected given the awful weather. I would happily return here, hopefully when the sun has decided to shine.

A Very Acceptable Site

All in all we had an enjoyable stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pitches are sizeable with no hint of being overlooked by ones neighbours. Shower block is modern and very clean. Noise from the nearby motorways cannot be ignored when you are out in the open, but when you are indoors it fades away. We were unlucky in that the nearest pub, 'The Rake', was closed for refurbishment. For the record it re-opens in September this year. If you like shopping then you will like the nearby retail parks. They are massive! There is walking to be had along the canal, but there is a bit of a slog along roads with no pavements to get there. Not a classic stay but nothing really to complain about either.

First time at this location not the last

First thing I can say is this is a great winter site and I can’t see any amount of rain stopping you from pulling off your very large (car, caravan and large awning wide) pitch. There are good level tarmac roads accessing all the pitches. There is a very modern very large toilet block with ample showers with lovely hot water, lots of toilet cubicles, wash cubicles and hair dryers etc. All kept immaculate and clean with piped radio playing in background. All at a temperature you can quite easily cope with in the middle of the coldest night. There are a number of service points that include fresh water, waste water emptying points, dustbins and Elsan points (the cleanest and most pleasant to use I have ever come across). There is a small dog pound for doggy business and it is fully secure so you can let your pet off the lead. I was concerned that we would be troubled by motorway noise however I have not noticed any unless I actually deliberately listen for it whilst outside. Now the staff, on arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady who booked us in, gave us the freedom to choose whatever vacant pitch we wanted and a fob to raise the barrier whenever we came back on site. All in all the staff were very helpful and had very nice personalities and although not needed we felt any problem they would go out of their way to sort it for us with a smile. Locally within ten minutes walk is a large M&S, KFC, Large Sainsbury’s and many more fast food outlets. I can fully recommend this site and give it the highest marks I can give up there with the best we have used. Paul n Olive

Pleasant break

Just had a pleasant Monday to Friday break at Cheshire Fairoaks. Immaculate facilities, not unlike the other Club Sites we've visited. The proximity of the motorway and a bit of traffic noise wasn't a problem (not dissimilar to the crashing of waves on a beach). Play area for kids and dog walk area for dogs. Ideal for Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet and other attractions - cinema, eateries and aquarium. Buses run every ten minutes to Chester and Liverpool, £4.40 adult day ticket good value. Chester Zoo well worth a visit. Chester interesting place. The nearest pub (The Rake) closed at the moment, not to worry with the Old Hall Farm Public House doing two meals for £11 and the Harvester also close. KFC and Costa Coffee also on route to Cheshire Oaks as well as a Sainsburys supermarket. Lack of a pavement on road from site wasn't a problem with care (used torches at night). Ideal if you want a site with a variety of attractions close by.
