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.

A week in May

A very nice stay at this site overlooking the river Dee, the walk along the beach adjacent to the site is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. Visited West Kirby Hoylake and New Brighton. If you are planning a visit to Liverpool I would suggest you catch the train from Hoylake (free car parking) and alight a James Street station a few minutes walk and you are at the pier head terminal looking across the Mersey. I think the site would benefit from a revamped toilet block on this very busy and popular site.

Relaxing stay

We stayed here for a weekend in early May. The location was fantastic for us as we like to cycle and walk, with views of the river Dee ( or the estuary). the site was managed excellently. We walked to West Kirby and onto Hoylake with our dogs, and also into the wirral country park which offers great circular walks. We will be returning to complete the 38 mile circular cycle in the very near future.

A lovely site in a wonderful area

Our first visit to this site and while we like to visit new places, this is a site we'd both be happy to return to, next time with our bikes. Sally & Peter Staniland checked us in on arrival and were helpful and efficient; they set a friendly tone and we felt very welcome for our 9 night stay. We were lucky enough to find ourselves on probably the best pitch on the site (17) with the most fabulous view over the estuary. It was calming to just gaze over the water to the Welsh mountains. Such scenery! The facilities are clean (if only a little dated) and they and the site are diligently managed - as I expect with CC sites. No disappointments there! Location is wonderful for a rural and peaceful retreat. Listening to the birdsong and watching the rabbits playing across from our pitch was a joy. Walking and cycling from the site could not be easier and the trails go through some wonderful countryside and lovely villages along the Dee estuary. Flissys coffee shop is a ten minute walk from the site and does good cafe food and coffee. We were so pleasantly surprised with this site and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I'd say it's a jewel in the CC network!

Best site ever for dog walking with a mobility scooter!

The only site I've stayed on thus far with adjacent dog walking which is also suitable for a mobility scooter.. the holy grail!! Staff very friendly and wardens couldn't do enough to help! Sorted me with a disabled friendly location close to disabled ablutions facilities (which were in themselves very warm and pleasant) I WILL be back (already booked for May!)

Nice Autumn Break

We stayed here for 3 nights the last week in October. The site is in a lovely location although the signage could be better to locate it, you need to go past the adjacent static caravan site along the access road pretty much to the end. Beware of the speed bumps as these aren't marked. The pitches are all nice and tidy but the access roads could do with a bit of TLC. Toilet blocks all clean and tidy and whilst could do with an update were fine. Site is 20 mins to Cheshire Oaks and 25 mins to Liverpool. Only shame is site was closing for the season on 5 November and we wanted to re-book for end of December. Will definitely be returning.
