Chesire fairoakes Nice Site BUT ..

This is based on a May 2022 visit. The site is well maintained but there were a number of problems:- 1) The fob reader at the barrier is set well back on a island and even with long arms (mine are 32 inch) it was stretch to open the barrier, you cannot get too close as you may end up 'grounding' your vehicle on the kerb edges 2) Wi-Fi was, being polite, VERY POOR. We had line of sight to a Wi-Fi mast but it still took at least 6 (Six) attempts every time to get a connection, most of the time all I got was a CONNECTION TIMED OUT message. When I finally got connected it took on average of 1 (One) minute to refresh a page. 3) Gas. The site only supplies Propane, unfortunately I needed Butane. When I asked one of the wardens about Butane they said "No one uses Butane today. The connections are the same on Butane and Propane bottles so you will have no problems using Propane. The advantage of propane gas is that it burns hotter so your food will cook quicker". The warden was, according to Calor Gas, WRONG ON ALL COUNTS ! The fittings are different and Butane burns hotter. Now the good points. 1)The site is very close to Cheshire Oakes outlet village, it is said that you can walk from the site to Cheshire Oakes and Sainsbury Supermarket in about 10 minutes. This may be true but Rake Lane (where the site is) is a narow, high hedged 40MPH road with NO FOOTPATH so taking young children along the road may be think carefully about. 2) If you wish to visit Chester the best way is to go to Chester Zoo and use the Park and Ride (Adults £2, Children £1) this drops you right by the East Gate in the city centre. 3) Now the best bit. If you are there on a Friday the Fish and Chip van is not to be missed, quality cooked to order food. Despite all I have said we will certainly be back.
