A bit cramped, but convenient as a stop off point for a night

Royal Vale Caravan Park
We were on our way from Somerset to Cumbria, and this site is ideally placed just off the M6 as an overnight stop. That's it. However, I wouldn't want to stay more than one night. I know it is possible to visit Jodrell Bank/Tatton Park/Little Moreton Hall etc from the site - so long as you have transport - but with a motorhome it is a little less attractive. The pitches are very close together and are barely long enough for our motorhome (7.2m) and if you have a caravan, the car needs to be parked on the little patch of grass leaving very little amenity space. I assume there are bigger pitches for awnings, but couldn't say for sure. Staff not particularly communicative. Sent us to a pitch with a broken hook up she 'forgot' to mention and thought what ... that we would work out for ourselves that we'd have to crawl through a hedge in order to reach another power point on a building site adjacent - yes, despite being cramped, there are more spaces going in! I did manage to catch her just before the reception closed for the night, and the lady was very apologetic, eventually, and promised us a credit for the night, which sadly we haven't seen.

Overnight stay

Royal Vale Caravan Park
We overnighted here on our way further north. We were given pitch no.1 which was immediately adjacent to the area where building work was being carried out to install chalets etc. We had no problems with noise or dust and ultimately this work will finish for the benefit of the whole site. The lady on the reception desk was very charming and helpful. The pitches are of adequate size and generally consist of a concrete strip with a gravel surround. The site was well laid out and was quite full at the time we were there. The shower and toilet facilities were very modern and perfectly clean. I'm not sure about bus services locally but if you were thinking of a prolonged stay you would obviously find these things out. The lady on reception told us about a walk across the fields to a beautiful church and superb pub/restaurant at Peover (pronounced Peever) which will take about 35/40 minutes, possibly less. If raining take appropriate footwear, but well worth the visit. Overall. I would recommend this site. .

One night stay on a building site!

Royal Vale Caravan Park

We liked the look of this site on the website with it's 52 all-weather pitches and 5* shower facilities - we thought it would be perfect for an overnight stay on our way home from The Lake District. However, It was like we had arrived at a different site to the one advertised. The site map we were given shows 41 hardstanding pitches and five grass pitches - it seems the others have been taken out to be replaced with lodges. To the right of the entrance, which is lovely pitches on the photographs, was a building site with diggers and signs saying no access. Of course, as we were only there for one night we had pitch 1 which has the building site behind it making it very noisy and very dusty. In front of our pitch was the car park and gas storage area. The toilet block looks lovely but look a little closer and it's quite grubby - the floors need to be cleaned better and the floors in the showers are very slippery too. It's the worst site we've stayed on this year - thankfully we only stayed for one night.

Royal Vale Caravan Park
We spent a week at Royal Vale in June 2022. The location was good for us as we wanted to visit Jodrell Bank but also a variety of other places, especially Cheshire's National Trust sites, all new to us. It would also prove convenient for those looking for an overnight stop being an easy 10 minute drive from the M6. The nearest town is Knutsford about a quarter of an hour to the north. There's also a village with basic shops ten minutes to the south. The site is directly off the A50, which on our first evening seemed to have become a rat run for a blocked motorway. Alternatively it might have been a Manx TT race track for motorbikes. Either way it was very noisy. Saturday afternoon and evening we were bombarded with loud rock music blowing our way from a nearby venue. Then there's Manchester Airport's flight paths to consider - that starts at about 6am. The site claims "Five Star facilities", whatever that means. There is a well equiped toilet block yet even that was spoilt by amateurish attempts at providing cheapo coat hooks and tatty metal baskets for ones shampoo etc. The showers were of the push button type with the water lasting barely fifteen seconds at a time. Most of the plots were of hard standing with fresh water tap and grey water drain adjacent. Our plot was rather small even for our 2-berth van. Many of the adjacent plots appeared to be seasonal lettings and unoccupied. There is no shop, nor newspapers, not even a visiting fish and chip van and no dog walk unless you count the adjacent bridleway. Whilst we were there a major re-build of the access road near the reception in progess - more noise from diggers.................. That in a nutshell is how we found it. Rather different from the image propogated by the Royal Vale website. Beware.

Thoroughly average....

Royal Vale Caravan Park
This was our first visit to Royal Vale and sad to say it did not live up to the description in the club handbook or the sites own website. The photography on the website is very creative and cleverly disguises the small size of the majority of pitches on site. If you are planning to erect an awning, even a small one, then it is unlikely you will have space on your pitch for your car. Given that the grass areas were very wet during our stay it meant that mud got tramped into the caravan. We advised our expected late (after 5pm) arrival and were left a welcome pack with all the information we needed. Did not see any site staff throughout our stay. The facilities were adequate without being spectacular. There is plenty to do in the area and I would particularly recommend Jodrell Bank and the Anderton Boat Lift. Overall our 3 night stay was a bit of a disappointment and did not live up the expectations created by the site's publicity. It is unlikely that we will return and are more likely to look for a CL site if we return to the area.
