We booked for 2 nights and were looking forward to a relaxing stay near a country setting. Having been asked if we had a preference for pitches, we said something with more grass for our dogs, and were shown what seemed an appropriate pitch, next to a small clump of trees. However, as the site filled up, this attracted a number of children who were playing with sticks and trying to climb the trees, very close to our car. It was only later when we walked the site that we realised there was no play area. Perhaps this also explained why other older children (young teens) were racing round the site on bikes, ignoring the speed limit and one way system, and performing skids on the gravel, until well after 10pm. All of this disturbed our dogs and we are always mindful of keeping them quiet so as not to disturb others, but this is made difficult and stressful if parents don't also keep an eye on their children. We decided to leave after one night to avoid a repeat of the same, and it was disappointing that the warden on our departure not only didn't ask if our stay had been pleasant, neither did she ask why we were cutting our stay short. Sorry to say, this was not relaxing for us, though it probably is for the parents who let their children go unsupervised in the absence of a formal play area, and we are not likely to return.

Stayed 2 nights in March in awful weather. Very heavy rain.

Very friendly and helpful staff who helped us with one or two setting up issues, as we were very new indeed to caravanning (try, first time out!)

Good sized pitches on an open site.

No play area for kids which was a pity, though there were central grassy areas for tents which weren't being used which could run about on.

Very close to forest.

Toilet and shower areas were spotless and impressive.

Will probably go back now we know what we are doing and when the weather is a little better.

Thank you to some of the other caravanners on site, who took the initiative to volunteer help with our attempts at putting up awning for the first time. Your tuition means it now seems easy!

Excellent site, wardens welcoming, helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Showers etc spotless at all times, even during the heavy rain we suffered! However the showers are the annoying push button type, but quite a spell between pushes!

Pitches spacious and drained well. Unlike a previous poster we had no problems with the electric and ran our heating, microwave etc with no tripping.

We stayed looking towards the forest so not really bothered by the road, or the trains which run approx every half an hour.

Great walks through the forest, Go Ape an easy walk as are a couple of cafes which were well used by walkers, cyclists.

However the best thing for us was the ' no ball games ' rule, what a relief! Being the ' proud' owners of a football dent in our new van it was great not to have to worry! This rule didn't seem to upset any of the children on site including ours who cycled, explored and enjoyed the forest and wildlife. Be aware though there are no play areas for children on the site.

I would go again without question.

Quite disappointed with this site. We arrived on the 29th December for 4 nights which was 2 adults, 2 children and a dog. Felt it was quite expensive at 140 for the break. Easy check in and showed to our site and was advised that it was 16amp. Couldn't even boil a kettle without it tripping the electrics. I couldn't understand why we got charged for children as there was absolutely no amenities for them. There was 'Do Not. ' signs everywhere and felt like we couldn't do anything. The showers were of a poor quality, although they were clean, you had to keep pressing the button, but it wasn't a continual flow, it stopped each time. The bins were at the entrance of the site, which was a bit of a bind as we were positioned near the back and there was snow, so was a good 5 minute walk. There was some good walks around there for the dog and a small shop a mile away, we also walked to a pub which is a 15 minute walk.

We arrived for a 2 night stay over half term. Very friendly welcome, we stayed this time on the far side of the park, nearest the forest which is quieter than near the toilet block side, as you do get some road noise there.

Excellent location for Delamere Forest as you can walk or cycle straight there, no need to drive.

Well stocked shop on site, good washing facilities, very friendly staff.

My daughter enjoyed watching the wild rabbits come out at dusk.

Go Ape is about a 5 minute walk from the site through the forest.

We enjoyed our stay there, and will be returning soon.

Good location, good facilities but not family friendly.

No ball games, no frisbee, no laughing (OK the last one wasn't an official rule). There are a signs all over informing what you can't do.

I would never visit here again. If you have children find somewhere else. When we go camping we spend much of the time playing ball games, frisbee, cycling, etc.

It is next to a railway station but the train noise isn't a problem. There is plenty to do in the nearby forest with a reasonable cafe and bike hire.
