A lovely site bordering the forest. The railway station is a couple of minutes walk away with trains to Manchester or Chester every hour. There was some noise from the trains when they were leaving the station and some traffic noise from the adjacent road. This was not a problem to us but may be for tent campers. There is a motorhome service point with a drive over grid for waste water and the chemical toilet disposal is next to it, which was very convenient. The toilet block was warm and clean and the showers lovely and hot. The wardens were very friendly and helpful.

We used the trains to Manchester and Chester and found both worked well. Chester station is about 10 minutes walk from the main shopping street and Manchester further away but a free metroshuffle bus operates every 10 minutes taking you into the centre of Manchester. We used the number 3 purple bus to take us near to the science museum. There is also a large car park in Chester (Little Roodee) without a height barrier, which is about 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre.

This site is in a lovely location, open all year, and we would definitely use it again.

Very nice site and in a great location. The railway station to Chester or Manchester was about 50 yards away (didn't hear any noise though). The forest had quite a number of marked walk / run / cycle paths. Surprised it didn't have a little more for families really.

The toilets and showers were very clean and tidy. Also located next to the reception so it might be a little trek for some but fresh air and exercise never killed anyone.

Those looking after the site were helpful and friendly but weren't exactly overly keen when we enquired about checking in early (despite it being the 3rd weekend in September so not exactly busy).

So would happily revisit and recommend to others.

What fab location sort of. Adjacent to the forest which has miles of walks, cycle tracks Go Ape and much more. If you have dogs it is heaven. Staff as usual with this club really friendly. Facilities are ok but very clean. Downside well it is next to a very busy straight road which seems to be a challenge for every motorbike in Cheshire to go faster than the previous one. Also it is next to the train line and station which again you will hear although not many trains. So absolutely fab forest on two sides and noisy train line and road on the others. You decide. Nothing close by so as we do not drive out in the motorhome once we have parked at a site make sure you take everything with you. We would return for forest walks. Oh yes you must try Hollies farm which is about 4 miles away and has a superb farm shop and cafe - would drive to Cheshire to visit this place anytime

Hi all. After deliberating as to book this site in spite of me personally thinking £17.00 a night for a solo camper, a small tent and no ehu was a bit steep, I went ahead and decided to try it out. Well. I still think its way to dear. For instance a lad next to me and his young son were charged £25.00 a night for a small tent and no ehu. We were on field right opposite the site office and the way in and out for motorhomes and caravans plus we were near the main road although not too busy you could hear every car and motorbike or wagon passing by. In hindsight for what I paid I should have asked to be moved into the main field it may have been a bit quieter. Also if your thinking of taking a gazebo. Stand alone shelter. Cooking area. Forget it as they are frowned upon. For the size of pitch. A corner of a field I squeezed into I think that for the silly money I should be allowed to put up a gazebo etc. On my way there I bought a small tarp from decathlon. I was allowed to put it up. But on condition it went partly over my tent only and not away from it. Would I go again. Yes. But only if I had to meet up with friends and the pricing policy was looked into. Now the positives. Helpful male and female wardens. Clean toilet/shower block, , friendly caravanners and campers. The negatives. Too dear. Near busy (ish main road).

Usual friendly greeting from the wardens that you get from a camping and Caravanning Club Site. That was the first and last time we saw them.

Itís location in the forest is pretty and the lake is a beneficial walk. As the site is C&C Club spotless toilet facilities, flat and well groomed pitches have become the norm and this applies to this site. There is not a lot pubs or shops within a mile so go prepared with your eggs bacon sausages and wine/beer IE. essentials.

This site is next tio the railway station with direct access to Chester and Manchester. Trains run every half hour and return to Chester was about £4.00. Chester was a great couple of days out. Open bus tour very good for history well told with humour ten out of ten. The train noise did not worry us at all in fact did not notice it. Overall a very good stay for three nights and if we were going to this area we would certainly stay here.

Visited for bank holiday weekend, wouldn't normally have used camping and caravan (we tend to prefer something with fewer satellite dishes) but it was all that was available in the right location.

It is a beautiful location, the forest is pretty and the lake is a worthwhile walk. The site itself is standard c&c - clean, safe and secure, short grass and level pitches are guaranteed.

Facilities are clean and reasonably abundant, there isn't a lot by the way of pubs or shops within a mile or so and the site shop was a bit sparse. The chip van that visits on a Friday was just ok.

What was really interesting was the enthusiastic application of the large number of site rules by the staff. On arrival we were escorted to our pitch by two staff who gave us a precise location, which we did our best to adhere to. We were visited during pitching to see how we were getting on - and were advised that we were half a metre too close to our neighbours but that they would 'let it go this time'.

On our second night, we were visited by an 8 month pregnant family member who, understandably, wanted to park near our tent to join us for a bbq. She had been on site less than 30 seconds when a staff member appeared, like mr Benīs shopkeeper to advise us that she could not park on site. Anywhere. So we had to move the car to an off site, public car park, at night. Not an unreasonable request I know, but they could have been a but more accommodating especially given the circumstances.

The site overall is not unpleasant, but the over application of rules could easily make it so. For us, the ambience is not improved by signs reminding campers of the rules (and sinisterly autographed HSM, like some Orwellian leisure organiser) on every surface.

Of course the best kind of fun is safe fun, but at Delamere they have gone little too far.
