Reviewer: Crazy Maisie 3 reviews from this member

Chose this site recently on the basis of location and when I phoned to book it I was surprised to find it was to cost £30 pn for 2 adults, that's more than we’ve ever been charged on top end sites so I thought it must surely be of a higher standard and hopefully have Wifi. Unfortunately I couldn’t have been more wrong, the cost is simply down to audacity. We have stayed on many sites up, down and across the UK we are usually pleased, if not impressed, by their standards but this was an exception by far. No Wifi, barely a network signal and the road it borders it really busy and noisy well into the small hours. Turns out it is mainly a ‘residential’ site for workers and non-workers who occupy caravans packed in like sardines (approx. 8-10 feet space between those on the hardstanding and other pitches) many of the caravans in a very poor and dirty condition. (There are also rented bedsits on site)

A large site, there were 3 showers and 4 toilets for females, 3 showers, two toilets and a metal urinal for males. No disabled access in the shower/toilet block and the Elsan disposal was grim. There was one dishwash sink with no plug and a hot tap with water coming out in three directions, none of them vertical! The ladies toilets were leaking, so constant puddle spreading over the floor to the neighbouring cubicles. There was no motorhome service point and few fresh water access points. But the most disturbing aspect was the tone of the notices about the place, they were threatening and oppressive to say the least. One demanded that all heating had to be fuelled by gas, any electric usage would be detected, another made it clear that ALL gas had to be purchased from the site only and if it wasn’t the site managers would know who they were and there would be consequences, yet other stated the male toilets were filthy and anyone not keeping them clean would have to leave. Two positives: the reason we’d give it a star, one of the workers, was a nice genuine guy, very helpful and friendly and also our pitch was almost level.

This place is fantastic now that it is under new management. The site is a lot cleaner, the staff are friendlier and they have improved all the caravans and site pitches. You can tell they have spent a lot of money in improving the site as a whole. People need to remember that this place is more of a budget campsite and isn't for 'glamping in Warrington'. It's for pitching up a tent and walking around the surrounding areas and breathing in the fresh air.

This has been taken over by new management. It's a great site and cheap. Not far from the Trafford Centre if you like a good shop and the beautiful village of Lymm. Some superb walking paths throughout Cheshire. They were updating the on site shop whilst we were there. It has an ATM machine in case of emergencies and is open 7 days a week until 10pm

On our way to Wales when my husband received a puncture in his motorcycle tyre. Our journey came to a halt very close to Holly Bank. The staff and residents were very helpful, going above and beyond to help us. Once settled at the site we found the toilet/shower block, clean and warm. The site itself was well maintained and overnight there was no noise.

I do not rate this site very good

1. The hard standing pitches are very close together, there is only a grass patch between each van of 10ft in width so if you had an awning you would be nearly touching the next van.

2 No Cars parked near the vans all parked in the Car Park.

3 Gates to the van area are locked and we had to ask for them to be unlocked at 9. 00 am to leave the site which took time. What would happen if there was a fire on site ?

4 Toilets Showers very basic

5 Charged £20 per night which is a lot for this standard of site, We are use to Caravan Club sites

6 A lot of older vans on site occupied by workers.

Positives

Friendly Helpful staff. Toilets cleaned everyday.

Some of those living on site were friendly. Handy for Manchester and Warrington which is where we wanted to be.

Would we go again NO

Great site if you want to visit Manchester

Read reviews and yes there is a lot of caravans for hire to contracters but pleasant to talk to, toilets clean, nice park on the hard standing area we're I was pitched, a good all rounder for location but don't expect it to be like a club site, and yes I will go back.
