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.

January break

On arrival we received a friendly welcome from the wardens and there were plenty of available pitches to choose from and the site and toilet block were spotless and tidy. There is a continuous hum from both the M56 and M53 traffic and there’s low flying aircraft noise well into the night. The toilet block although immaculate, was quite cold and involved a brisk shower to stay warm. The main attraction for the site seems to be the retail park, 15 minutes walk away, however, the 300m stretch of road from the club site to the junction is a nightmare especially as there is no footpath and cars seem to want to race along this narrow section of road day and night as its a direct route to Chester. We think this site is more of a stopover site than a place for a relaxing break and it is expensive for what the site offers, especially in January, the site could benefit everyone by having a mid-week discount rate to make the site more attractive and better value for money.

Short shopping visit

Been to this site now 4 times over the last 10 years had 4nights on this trip late November. Very noisy due to the M53 motorway nearby but didn't bother us to much you do get used to it after a while. Great location for shopping at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet. Chester is a lovely city and about 5 miles from site, park near to racecourse £5 all day expensive parking in the city otherwise. The wardens are so friendly and helpful, Site was very wet when we were there but the wardens did their best to keep it clean and tidy. Toilets an showers were as always spotless.

Don’t forget your ear plugs

Just back from a short trip here, it’s a nice site but the traffic noise was incessant.

Some reviews do mention the noise but they don’t seem to think its a problem. Do these people live on main roads?


I honestly could not believe how bad it was. Glad to be back home and definitely won’t be back.

Great Place to visit Chester and Merseyside Area

We booked three nights at this camp site. On the day we arrived we received a nice warm welcome and the site access facilities were explained well. The site facilities are excellent modern clean and the toilets in winter were warm clean and nice music playing. The site is the perfect location for local shopping walking and visiting the area. Public transport buses are only a 5 minute walk to Cheshire Oaks from there you can get to Chester and Liverpool and indeed other places of interest. No wonder this site is busy its excellent. We will be staying again next year in the spring.

Disappointed

Tried to book 2 week stay on this site, many months in advance, as I had business to attend in Chester, showing full one night over a weekend, tried through the site, & head office for this one night but no good, had to alter my plans in the end, and only managed to get one week. Although there were some flooded pitches, there were also empty ones, but site full sign was on the entrance gate, and by no means full. Would have been interested to see how full it was on the one night that was unavailable to me, to me FULL should mean FULL !!!!

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your recent review and we are so sorry that you had problems trying to book a longer stay on site. We have looked into matters during your stay and we can advise you that we were having some essential works taking place that led to the booking of pitches being temporarily blocked via the website.

The Site Warden team were managing this daily and were close to the situation ,and were able to release pitches on a daily basis. Please always make your needs known to the site team or give them a call as they usually have the latest up to date information.

We know that Chester Fairoaks is one of our busier sites and certain sites cause frustration to get into, so we hope your next visit will be for much longer and we can welcome you back soon.
