This was the first site we have used as brand new members of the Caravan & Camping Club being new to family camping.

We booked two nights at this site as it is close to home (in case of disasters with weather etc) and because it looks great in the club brochure. We were not disappointed.

The site is lovely and is very well run by really pleasant & friendly people who are there if you need them but leave you alone if you don't - the perfect blend. Very relaxed. Other things to note:

> The toilet/shower blocks are immaculate and the facilities overall are well kept and clean as a whistle.

> The pitches are level and well prepared

> There are baskets of flowers on top of the wooden bollards between sections of the site - a really pretty touch.

> Ancient Citroen Pizza van (with it's own chimney!) on Saturday nights is a great idea and good value.

> Go to the butchers in Kelsall for your barbie meat / sausage / burgers etc - the nicest we have had for some time, especially their home-made sausages.

> Delamere Stores close to the site in case you've forgotten anything, plus the site shop has a small selection of essentials.

> The information 'Summerhouse' on the site is has a wealth of really well researched and presented local information - even though we are from down the road, it proved very handy.

> Very close to and within a couple of minutes walk from Delamere Forest - brilliant waymarked walks, cycling etc and a lovely environment. (Our 5 yr old walked there in her Crocs, did a 3 mile walk in the forest, and walked back with no great issue as the paths are so well prepared)

> We didn't try it, but Go Ape (a short walk away in the forest) looks fantastic - next time!

> Snugbury's Ice Cream at the picturesque Railway Station - beautiful and guilt free if you have walked there! (2 minutes away on foot)

> Very little on the downside. The road that runs alongside the site can be a little noisy on occasion during the night as it's fast and straight, so take some earplugs if you're a light sleeper. Not a major issue at all - just be prepared especially if you are in a tent.

> There was a small issue with noise after 11pm from one group of campers on the first night, but this was dealt with very well by the site team and the second night brought a wonderful night's sleep.

Overall, this site gets 9 1/2 out of ten from us - a very high standard all round, very well run by lovely people and in a beautiful area. Go there.

Just wanted to say, lovely little site but management were rude!

Toilets great, clean and well stocked.

Forest right on the doorstep and fantastic for walking bike riding and dog friendly.

Would visit the are again but unfortunately not this site.

Local area is fantastic, loads to see and do, right in the heart of Cheshire, close to Chester and Frodsham being a great place to eat out.

First visit to this site.

Great location parked the car on arrival and spent the week getting out and about on bikes buses and trains.

Very handy for train station and short trip into Chester. Friends and family railcard well worth getting for the amazing savings even on the shortest of trips.

Lovely bike rides around the forest & well marked out.

As for the campsite I found it to be very clean and tidy, lovely hot clean showers.

Just a few Gripes.

The keypad entry system proved to be a pain initially as it required reading glasses & paper with code on to be found prior to mid night essential visit (soon memorised keypad)

This is probably essential due to proximity of the site to visitor centres and train station but does remind you of being at work!

My main gripe is that all facilities are closed for an hour and a half from 11am for cleaning. Not sure what the reason for this is, usually not a problem as off site by then but on packing up day it would be nice to freshen up prior to departure that is due to be before 12.

I gather this is standard practice for many sites but does seem odd.

Would visit the site again as plenty in the area still to see.

Just got back from this cracking site. Staff friendly but not too intrusive. Toilet, shower and dishwashing facilities were immaculate. Pitches seem to be mostly flat. Non-electric field at the front of the park did seem to be a little prone to flooding in the middle but then again we did have some very heavy showers. Eleven o'clock curfew very well observed and as far as I know did not have to be enforced. A few too many caravans for my liking but yet to find a site where there isn't. Overall 9/10, nothing can be perfect.

Only spent 2 nights on site as a stop over on our way back to Devon. Wardens were very friendly and helpful, showed us to our site and pointed out all facilities on our arrival. Lovely clean toilet and shower facilities.Good little shop but not open very long hours. Great walks in forest adjoining site, ideal for dogs. Ideally situated for visiting interesting areas in Cheshire, ei. Anderson Lift well worth a visit.Would certainly recommend this site for a longer stay.

A lovely setting, with trees and walks all round. The site itself is spacious, with wide roads and large pitches, but the access involves a tight turn off a narrow country road and there are two gates to open/close. All the facilities are immaculate, with full recycling, but what a pity almost everything is clustered around the entrance, making a long walk from the far end of the site.

This is a great site for those who like walking or cycling, and for dog-owners too.
