Just had 2 nights here and it wasn't particularly enjoyable. The site was full, however we were surrounded but tent groups - the pitch beside us had 3 small tents, 3 cars, and a central area where everyone in the group got together for loudest voice competitions. At most they covered a pitch and a half. So despite all the many rules, they don't seem to adhere to some pretty basic ones.

The family room however was LOVELY- which was great news as the toilet block had a number code on it which 2 of my 3 children could never get to work, either because they were physically too small or it was too stiff. The facilities were too small when the site was full - first time I've experienced a queue for the dishwash.

Also, despite the sites many rules regarding all other forms of fun, the place was full of kids on bikes whizzing around everywhere which can not only be disconcerting but with the amount of tent lines etc it's not safe.

Sorry, didn't get any peace and quiet here at all

Our return to camping after years of boating: close to home, beautiful spacious site, wardens spent some time showing us a variety of level pitches. Noticed only a few other tents but an abundant crop of caravans and motor-homes. Ample showers, toilets, wash basins, laundry room, electricity points - just like home! Perhaps just a tad too much like home? No playground, or at least I didn't see one, for children and there were notices banning ball games. No notices banning notices, though.

Ten minutes walk, turn right out of the gate, to Delamere station, trains to Manchester and Chester, and a small café. Five minutes drive in the opposite direction to Hatchmere and The Carriers, excellent for evening meals at about £12 per main course. Some very good fish dishes.

Usual CC&C efficiency which verges on the regimented at times - a new one to add to the list of 'Don't' signs (seen in gents' shower block) 'Please do not leave this cubicle unless you are fully clothed to avoid offending other guests and children'!

The site was vey well placed for the forest and the Go Ape adventure park and quite a pleasant walk with the dog.

We stopped here for 2 nights as it was convenient for us and our itinerary - not sure that we would particularly stop here again, but can see that it would have it's appeal for location.

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.
