Not the first time to this site but the first review. A Camping & Caravanning Club site located in the heart of Delamere Forest. Although the site is located next to the Manchester / Chester railway line, donít let this put you off visiting this site; trains are infrequent and noise is not an issue.

What to expect when you arrive. ? Basically what youíd expect from most other club sites Ė the site has all the usual facilities: toilet / shower block, washing up & laundry facilities, chemical disposal and drive over motor home waste disposal, all maintained to a high standard by the friendly wardens who canít seem to do enough. There is no childrenís play area on site or dog walk but due to the proximity of the forest (youíre in the middle of it), these are not needed.

Pitches are a mixture of grass or hand-standing with electric hook-up with an area in the middle for tents. If I had to make any criticism at all, the showers block could do with being bigger but having said that, it didnít cause me a problem during our stay. As a side issue, a mobile fish Ďní chip van visits on a Friday night (saves cooking).

Within the forest itself, there are miles of tracks for exploring both on foot and by bike or you could always catch a train to visit further afield. There is also a high rope activity course located within walking distance from the site and a cafe located next to the train station and also one at the nearby visitors centre.

Final comment Ė canít wait to be go back. !

As already said great site clean and on the forest doorstep. Great for walkers and cyclists.

Yes showers need to be pressed very often but clean and hot.

The only negative and this is not the sites fault is that it is situated next to an unlit busy fast road! In the summer it would not be so bad to walk to the pub down the road or the Chinese but in the winter when its dark at 4 its very dangerous. We went to Chester on the train £8. 40 return for two adults, trains run every hour, this was good value and an excellent day out a must if you have never been. However when you arrived back at 6. 00pm in total darkness you still have a short walk of about 75 mtrs along this dangerous road to the site entrance and you WILL need a torch !

This is the only downside to this site but we will be returning again very soon.

We had a short four night stay here at the end of October, but will try to return again soon as we loved the site and the location.

Really clean well tended site with friendly and helpful staff. Good showers with plenty of hot water and a squeegee plus mop and bucket, unfortunately these seemed too technical for some members judging by the number of people who walked away without cleaning the floor after their shower.

Great location for exploring the forest on foot or on a bike, or you can catch a train into Chester and explore the city.

If you fancy eating out there's a Chinese restaurant a couple of mins up the road, we had good food in nice surroundings, or you can ring up and collect a carry out. There is also a pub which does food a little further up, but we didn't try it so cannot comment.

The station cafe is well worth a visit, nice food at a reasonable price and it is much friendlier than the cafe in the forest.

You can have an active break or a relaxing one at this site, the pace is up to you, but it is well worth a visit.

Pleasant site with well maintained facilities. I would echo the comments about the timing of the shower push buttons, you almost have to keep your hand on all the time.

Large site with plenty of sizeable hard standings. Although quiet when we arrived, it filled up for the weekend, even in the low season.

Excellent Chinese restaurant not far from site and useful village shop in the other direction. Site is also visited by a fish n chip van and a Mobile Pizza van on regular nights.

The site is located within the forest and all the pitches are in a clear area allowing plenty of light throughout the day. The facilities and grounds are well maintained and in excellent condition.

The site is ideally located to travel to Chester, Liverpool or Manchester as the railway station is just outside the site if you do not want to drive. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The pressure switches for the showers require setting as a single press lasted approximately 5 seconds.

The forest provides opportunities to cycle, walk or take part on the Go Ape high ropes course. For people who enjoy walking longer distances it is possible to walk to Chester from the site on a marked footpath called Bakers Way, this follows forest tracks, roads, crosses farmers fields and then follows the canal into Chester.

Full marks for cleanliness of toilet block. Reception staff were always helpful.

Site location next to the railway station is a huge advantage. We had a very relaxed rail trip to Chester, just two stops down the line. It avoided all the bother of driving, hunting for a parking space and going three times round the bypass.

Chester is full of interest, whether you go for the Roman amphitheatre or the shops. Trains go to Manchester in the opposite direction. We'll try that next time. It could be a good place for camping entirely by public transport.
