Why stay here ...

Wirral is a peninsula of great natural beauty, and the Wirral Country Park Club Site is set right in the midst of some of its loveliest landscapes with wonderful sea views. Located in a country park of 2,000 acres of unspoilt nature, the caravan park is made up of several pitching areas attractively separated by trees and shrubs. Some pitches overlook the Dee Estuary, which is one of many ideal places for scenic walks. There are lots of lovely wooded areas on site and plenty of bird life to observe.

Wirral Country Park Club Site puts you within easy reach of a wealth of fun activities to suit all tastes, whether for sports enthusiasts, young families or those with ultra-relaxed pursuits in mind. You will find the caravan park just perfect for sailing - no less than seven private Sailing Clubs offer temporary and family membership to visitors. Apart from a huge choice of unforgettably scenic walks, the area offers power-boating, water skiing and other water-based sports to enjoy along with several indoor swimming pools, sports and recreation centres and golf courses. The site is also conveniently located to visit Liverpool and explore north Wales.

Wirral in the rain

Nice site, toilets are clean but dated. The roadways are not in very good condition, problem with standing water after rainfall. The club could improve this site with minimum effort. Some of the pitches have lovely view over the river, many more could be given better view with some better thought out design. Nice cafe a short walk up the Wirral Way track which was flat easy walking

A wet stay......

I would agree with previous reviews. The surface water flooding was a nuisance and the closure of the toilet block could have been a problem for those with no 'in-van' facilities. However, the staff coped well and continued to smile throughout. This is a picturesque site, even in the rain, with good access to the beach and footpaths for dog owners.

Fab site let down

This is a lovely site in an area we have not explored. Unfortunately yes it rained and rained. The site does not seem to be able to cope and large pools formed. I agree with others this site needs investment the facilities require bringing up to date, they also flooded while we were there and had to be temporary closed. May I also state some members do not know how to clean up and leave them after use. The staff worked very hard to look after the site. It’s a great place to visit. Come on caravan club get your fingers out and bring it up to the standards we deserve. Your letting it down

This could so easily be a five star site with a little investment

A nice site in a lovely part of the country. My main concern was the pumps for the toilet block were not adequate to cope with the amount of rainfall. After heavy rainfall the whole toilet block had to be closed to allow the pump to 'catch up' with the extra surface water. No problem using shower or toilet in the van but when there is nowhere to empty the toilet, this does become a concern. The whole toilet block is in need of modernisation but perhaps because of the possibility of coastal erosion there is not as much money being spent on this site as might otherwise have been spent. It is a shame because these are the only things which let an otherwise picturesque and peaceful site down. I would have given five stars overall and also for facilities if there hadn't been these problems. As it happens they did not spoil our stay there but I can see how the pump situation could have caused huge problems for people who found themselves with a full toilet cassette and nowhere to empty it, leaving them with no toilet facilities at all. If you are fortunate enough to bag a pitch overlooking the estuary the views are wonderful.
