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.

Great site, even for large RV

Having a large RV, 40ft/12m, we called by last year to check out availability for large rigs. The wardens marked on the site plan suitable pitches. When we booked with the site, the wardens were great and said they would endeavour to keep our preferred site. On arrival, they were all you could wish, having saved our first preference and helping us into the location. The site is in a great location on top of the cliffs with views over the river Dee towards Wales. TV reception is great, pitches more than adequate and the facilities first class. We were by the children's play area, great for our visitors! What was interesting and something many don't think about, was the safety inspection of all aspects of the children's play area, very thorough!! The stewards were friendly but discrete and made our visit great. Thank you all.

First motorhome adventure!

We are new to motor homing so wanted somewhere local to us to try out our new laika ecovip motorhome. Got there ok. Super little site which is just what we wanted. There were a couple of hiccups as being newbies we had no idea we would need our own hosepipe in which to fill the water tank. We tried with a borrowed watering can and several empty water bottles but lets face it, thats not going to work! Added a hose pipe into my amazon basket as soon as I could. The facilities were clean and well kept. Great for walking, we have two Labradors and they loved the estuary and wallowing in mud ( I didn't !) still there was a dog washing area which came in extremely handy. All in all a great first visit. I guess you pick up tips everywhere you go and I am looking forward to my motor homing adventure. People super friendly too :)

Amazing sunsets

Stayed here last week for the first time and will certainly be back. Had Pitch 11 where we overlooked a grass area frequented by rabbits and further on over the estuary. Lots of information on walks, eateries displayed in the hut by reception. Situated on the Wirral Way there are plenty of walks and cycling to be done and also a 5 min walk to the beach. The sunsets are amazing and it seems everyone comes out to take photos! Staff very friendly, great cafe 10 min walk serves lovely cake and ice creams as well as sandwiches and toastier. Loo block could do with a few more showers and an update but other than that a lovely site.

What a Great site

We always start our season here.This year we also finished here.We ALWAYS get good weather! There are not really any downsides to this site. The first one is rather disconcerting as the cliff is crumbling in the middle of the site.The fence opposite the pitches by the cliff used to be forty feet from the road and now its only ten feet.Apparently the problem is not erosion from the tide or the sea,but from the softness of the soil and rain making it unstable.The cliffs on either side by the static site and towards the Yacht club all have foliage on them that must be stabilising the cliff face. I dont know if the club has any ideas about stopping this. This time we were pitched up the cul de sac at the far reach of th site. But to get to the toilet block we have to walk down towards the shore and then come back up. There are paths through the woods coming out opposite the playground,but these have been allowed to be reclaimed by nature and are pretty much impassable with stinging nettles. On the cul de sac side there is a wide grassy verge which would be good for a path through the woods,but the other side would be between two pitches.So maybe a fenced path could be created inbetween the pitches? Recently we have stayed at Moreton in Marsh site and visited Broadway site.Both of these sites clean the toilet block in the afternoon which is a lot more convenient for customers.But maybe this can only be done on larger sites where there are multiple pairs of Wardens. But on reflection,nothing will put us off going to this site-its ammaculate! And the Wirral has so much to offer.
