Reviewer: Sakki66 1 review from this member

We had seen poor reviews so we actually tried to book any other site but they were all booked up. On reflection we are very glad we didn't. The positives: The site was a good size and very clean, well maintained, grass cut short and neat. Both gents and ladies showers were lovey and warm, the shower cubicles were very clean. As was the floors, sinks etc. Toilets too. The shop seemed to stock enough of the basics although it wasn't open but being very close to supermarkets and a modern large excellent shopping precinct (not that you would know it as it feels miles from anywhere urban) the provisions really didn't matter.

The games room was basic, pool/snooker, darts. We really didn't pay much attention to the rest, sorry. There is an area for hand washing clothes and a separate one for dishes as well as washing machines/ironing facilities. There is a small children's play area but plenty of space for little ones to run around playing football etc without harassing the other campers.

The negatives: The Motorway can be heard in the distance, although it can from most places nowadays. This did not impact upon us at all. Nor did it impact sleeping.

The second negative was that as we are not that far from the airport, planes fly over. They are not that low, but a fraction lower than most places. They didn't affect us and after a short while we were oblivious to both the cars and the planes. I doubt that these two things had any impact upon anyone as people seemed to be regulars. The site was clean, well kept, quiet and people were friendly. You can also rent basics tatic-tourers from here if you don't fancy taking a tent. Although the ones by the toilets could have done with sprucing up a bit. We really found it a relaxing break. Cost us 9 for my wife and the same for me. Our children were free.

We would go back and that says it all for us. Have a look at Google Maps and you can see it clearly and the surrounding area, which is quite rural. I would really recommend making the 5 minute drive and going left out of the site entrance and over the little toll bridge (25p for the day) then at the bottom of the road go right and go for a meal at 'The Green Dragon' on the right, and it is lovely. There is also an exclusive 5 star restaurant across the road called 'La Boheme' (park behind it-website worth a look. Also prebook this place as we didn't and couldn't get in by just turning up. We do adore the Michelin starred 'Church Green Restaurant'(with celeb' chef but not celeb prices) that is located just next to Lymm Dam/woodland walk (called the Bongs. )

Lymm Village is cobbled and pretty, it has a canal running through it. They have local markets on Thursdays, 10am-4pm. So yes we will be going back as this campsite/caravan park is not only a nice place but very close to one of the most pretty villages in Cheshire.

Only returned to this local site as the website indicated 'under new management', and we needed to test out some things on the caravan. But nothing much has changed. The hookup is only 10 amps and many (most?) still do not work and repeatedly trip. We couldn't even get the lights to stay on. Staff try their best to find working ones not already in use but we have had the same problem on every visit. Vans on the hard standing are far too close together, we wouldn't have been able to put our awning up. I think this site is still used largely by workers. Would recommend only if you don't need hookup, you have your own toilet and shower and you are using the site only as a place to sleep. Shame, as the location is handy and the staff are lovely.

This is our local camp site for trying out new gear or simply just sneaking off overnight for a chill out! It has benefited from new management and we would definitely recommend it. It's tucked in on the left at the foot of Warburton Toll Bridge.

A great site to stop off and recharge your batteries as well if you're on a long drive. Nice pub locally (Green Dragon in Lymm) and there's a superstore a short way down the road to replenish supplies.

I booked this site for a one night stopover on the basis of the positive reviews. Reading these reviews again makes me wonder whether we're talking about the same site.

It was really grim and probably the worst camping experience I have ever had. As far as we could gather this site seems to mainly provide temporary housing for workers and a storage compound for caravans - it didn't really feel like a 'proper' campsite.

I booked online and had to e-mail the campsite to ask for confirmation since this wasn't provided automatically. We arrived at 9pm to locked gates (no mention of this in the confirmation e-mail). Had to phone the site and someone (not even sure he worked there) let us in. He thought we 'might' be able to find somewhere on the grass but if not, we could park our camper van on the concrete standing beside the wash block.

Given that much of the grassy areas were really wet and either blocked off by cars and ropes, we didn't really have any other option than to camp near the entrance.

The toilets were really dirty, no soap and no evidence they had been cleaned in a while.

The site is right next to a busy road with industrial estates nearby; noisy traffic passed by all night.

30 for a parking space. As my son pointed out, we would have had a better experience in the nearby Tesco car park. What a joke !

Planned to stay at this campsite for 1 night but liked it so much we stayed 2!

We arrived later than we anticipated and found them to be welcoming, helpful and very friendly.

We paid 42 for 2 nights 3 adults with electric which I think is very reasonable.

Lovely clean and quiet campsite with good on site facilities. Shop, laundry room, play area & games room. Shower/toilet block was very clean and warm with free use of a hairdryer!

Although it rained for our entire stay it didn't dampen our spirits and we had a great time. In fact it was a great way to test our new tent for leaks (it passed!). Would highly recommend Holly Bank Caravan Park and will definitely be returning and hopefully bring the sun with us next time!

My husband, myself and our 2 young children stayed here over the jubilee weekend, we are new to camping and although it rained on occasion we all had a great time.

The sites facilities were brilliant, the showers and toilets were immaculately kept and there was also no charge for showers or hairdryer which was great, there was also a games room on site which would come in useful if the weather was really bad, our eldest son also enjoyed the little swing that was hanging from the trees on site.

The surrounding area was lovely but not too far away from all the amenities and there was a lovely walk/cycle path nearby,

All in all a great site in a pretty surrounding with polite staff would definitely return.
