Why stay here ...

A pleasant, open and level caravan site in Cheshire, bordered by oak trees, Chester Fairoaks Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Still a nice site but beware if you want to use shower blocks as they close from 1015 to 1200 or the usual cararavan and motorhome standards bins are all in 1 corner of site also no dog poo bins only on dog walk area

Chesire fairoakes Nice Site BUT ..

Chester Fairoaks Club Campsite
This is based on a May 2022 visit. The site is well maintained but there were a number of problems:- 1) The fob reader at the barrier is set well back on a island and even with long arms (mine are 32 inch) it was stretch to open the barrier, you cannot get too close as you may end up 'grounding' your vehicle on the kerb edges 2) Wi-Fi was, being polite, VERY POOR. We had line of sight to a Wi-Fi mast but it still took at least 6 (Six) attempts every time to get a connection, most of the time all I got was a CONNECTION TIMED OUT message. When I finally got connected it took on average of 1 (One) minute to refresh a page. 3) Gas. The site only supplies Propane, unfortunately I needed Butane. When I asked one of the wardens about Butane they said "No one uses Butane today. The connections are the same on Butane and Propane bottles so you will have no problems using Propane. The advantage of propane gas is that it burns hotter so your food will cook quicker". The warden was, according to Calor Gas, WRONG ON ALL COUNTS ! The fittings are different and Butane burns hotter. Now the good points. 1)The site is very close to Cheshire Oakes outlet village, it is said that you can walk from the site to Cheshire Oakes and Sainsbury Supermarket in about 10 minutes. This may be true but Rake Lane (where the site is) is a narow, high hedged 40MPH road with NO FOOTPATH so taking young children along the road may be think carefully about. 2) If you wish to visit Chester the best way is to go to Chester Zoo and use the Park and Ride (Adults £2, Children £1) this drops you right by the East Gate in the city centre. 3) Now the best bit. If you are there on a Friday the Fish and Chip van is not to be missed, quality cooked to order food. Despite all I have said we will certainly be back.

Great Site

Chester Fairoaks Club Campsite
We had a lovey time here, ended booking another night. The shower block was absolutely spotless and the wardens were working so hard around the site to keep it clean and tidy, nothing was too much trouble. Very convenient to shops and pubs that laid on great meals too. Will be booking again and thank you for a great stay.

Great site

Chester Fairoaks Club Campsite
We stay at Chester Fairoaks as our camper is serviced/MOT'd close to the site and we have done so for a few years now. So lovely to have caught up with the new wardens too, having first met them in their capacity as Assistant Wardens at Grassington...good luck guys! The facilities are clean and well maintained, we use them daily. I also appreciated the wooden planters which surround the reception block coupled with the little fairy garden which appealed to the child in me. It would also have appealed to my grandchildren, had they been with us. I do take on board two previous reviews where the general appearance is concerned and the closure of the facilities for those who don't rise early. To be honest though, I'm not sure how the wardens could close and clean the shower block at 1, given the hoards of campers who descend on them each day around this hour. Caravanning and camping have really taken off after the pandemic and the wardens have a real struggle to keep up with all of us sometimes. The pitches are a little weedy however I'm sure as the year progresses, this will be addressed but please don't over weed the hedge borders or cut the grass too short...it's very evident when watching any wildlife programme these days that those borders are needed. A price I feel is worth paying to give wildlife a chance.
