Very good farm CL, great location

We stopped here over the Easter weekend and the weather was hot and sunny. Its easy to find and right next to the canal. There are great views over the Cheshire country side facing west so we had full sun right until sunset. The local pub is only 15 minutes walk away and serves good beer, good food with great service. As farm CL's go it was nearly perfect for a weekend break at a reasonable price. The only thing I would add is the access to the toilet empting point could be improved with a couple of tonnes of hard-core and a post for the tap. This is however a minor point and we would certainly like to return.

Absolutely lovely

We stayed here to allow us to visit someone in Leighton Hospital, which is really close by. Access is good and the road well maintained. When we arrived, there was nobody around to welcome us, but we were told that we could pitch anywhere in the camping field. We were the only ones there, so we picked a lovely spot with a belting view. The site has a gentle slope, but ramps can deal with that. We found the site well maintained and the grass had been recently cut. I don't like grass too closely cut, like a billiard table and this was just right. We had a storm during our stay and the ground drained really quickly. There is a small gate giving access to the canal, and we enjoyed a nice walk along the towpath, which actually could have done with a bit of a cut as the grass was long and wet. Obviously this has nothing to do with the site. What more can I say? We loved our stay and have booked to go back this weekend

Lovely quiet site

We stayed for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend. Friendly but unobtrusive owners, easy access and stunning countryside views. The site is also very quiet, no road noise at all and only the occasional canal boat passing or farm vehicle which is only to be expected on a working farm. Access straight on to canal towpath was excellent for us with 2 dogs. TV reception was very good. The site is slightly sloping but it is only slight. The only small drawback was the grass could have done with a cut. On the whole one of the nicest CL's we've stayed on and will definitely book again when we are in the area. We can also thoroughly recommend the ice cream sold in the farm shop!

Pros: easy access, plenty of space, pleasant view, handy for canal Cons: access to chemical emptying point

Access was easy off the minor Cross Lane into farm drive which is good quality tarmac all the way to the CL. The junction is wide so plenty of space to turn in. When approaching from the east the junction is very soon after the canal bridge. Cross Lane is busy for a minor road though you can’t hear it from the CL. The CL field is slightly sloping with views: you get a glimpse of Beeston Castle 8 miles away. The CL is immediately adjacent to the canal and is screened from the canal by a large hedge. Boats occasionally moor up adjacent to the CL which you can hear but can’t see because of the hedge. There’s a gate for CL users to access the towpath about 80 yards back down the farm drive. There’s a second gate to the towpath through the farmhouse garden. The chemical emptying point is 100 yards from the CL behind one of the farm buildings. The emptying point access path had been strimmed but could have done with a bit more work. Bins are in the yard. It’s a working farm so machinery and occasionally livestock are moved along the farm road adjacent to the CL. It’s a really pleasant CL which we’d be happy to visit again.

Not a great experience

We had booked the site for 3 nights but left after 2. The grass had not been cut in fact it looked like the grass had not been cut for a while. The water tap was accessible but there was no clue as to where the toilet disposal point was and what to do with our rubbish. We ended up bringing the rubbish home. Due to the rain the grass just got too much to walk through. It would be so simple to solve the issue of what to do if there was a notice printed and posted by the water tap. We didn't notice the caravan club CL sign anywhere.
