We have stayed on this CL twice. A very peaceful, level site with good access and welcoming owners. Country park with woodland and a small lake opposite the site. Our recent stay was during the Brereton Teddy Bear Festival (July/August), lots of teddy bears displayed in front gardens in Brereton Heath, which made us smile everytime we approached the site. Well done Brereton Heath.
This site has been our “go to” for many years as it’s very handy for us. This year we’ve been back for the first time in a while and I’ve finally remembered to review it. It’s a lovely quiet site, right opposite Brereton Country Park so if perfect for walking. There are good walks to The Swettenham Arms (about 2 miles one way) and The Bears Head (about 2 miles the other way). Both are dog friendly and serve good food. Although it’s all grass pitches, we have never had a problem with the ground as it seems well drained. This site does get used as a quick stop over from north to south. I think it’s worth a longer stay – nearby is Jodrell Bank, The Peak District, Macclesfield Forest and local small towns for shopping. There’s also a caravan shop – Leisure Sales – about 3 miles away, which also has a café serving good breakfasts and home made cake.
Lovely large level site and very welcoming owner. Easy access to many places of interest. Roads to the site were very easy to negotiate and entrance is nice and wide. Really cannot find any faults and our solar panel kept us charged up all week so who needs mains hook ups. Nearby nature reserve with large lake a super walk. Next time we want to be in that area this is where we will stop.
We pulled onto this site and went to the back door of the house to let them know we'd arrived. A very warm welcome met us and we were advised to pitch wherever we wanted to on the (very) large field. There is a water tap, Elsan disposal and a clean toilet for use by caravaners. The field is level and tent pegs go effortlessly into the ground for awnings. Although a road runs along the side of the field, there is almost no traffic and it caused no disturbance at all. Along the road a little from the site is Brereton Heath Nature Reserve, a large lake and woodland with a good footpath all the way around, it takes about an hour to walk the full length when walking from the campsite. This was a wonderful find, a beautiful place to visit and enjoy a walk (in the sunshine for us). The vehicular entrance to this is about 1/2 a mile from the site, however, about 50yds along the road is an entrance to the woodlands surrounding the lake, this proved the ideal place to walk our dog. We will be returning to this site again in the near future. There are no electric hook ups, however, if you're happy 'off grid' this site provides a great, very cost effective, option for somewhere to stay.
