This is very attractive site with spacious pitches and water and grey waste disposal on each but beware the drains are too high and far away for running all but the longest drain pipe, I simply used it for pouring away the waste container without the usual long walk. The lights on site were fixed the day after we got there so it was not as dark as a previous reviewer mentioned. The directions after you enter are a bit vague and there is no camp warden or office you just pay at the shop checkout and pitch wherever you want. It was a bit crowded in the shop car park when we got there and we had to drive quite a way to find a place to park and return to the shop.
Beautiful Chester is only 15 minutes away and Liverpool, which has turned itself into a great tourist city is about a 40 minute drive if that, both are well worth a visit as is Port Sunlight with its gallery and museum a fascinating and lovely place. If it interests you the Inland Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port is well interesting and a good half day out, he history of the Manchester Ship Canal that runs alongside is well illustrated.
We shopped at the site farm shop and found the quality and choice excellent as is the cafe which is soon to become a restaurant in January. Just a short walk down the road is Pesto at Cabbage Hall a strange name for a superb eatery, Italian Tapas is the fare and it is well worth a visit.
Due to road noise and lack of a warden I will not give a top score but I can recommend the site and would return.
Stayed for a week and was very pleased with the site. It is ideally situated for exploring the area and we visited North Wales, Liverpool, Manchester, the Wirral and Chester. The pitches are level with gravel hardstanding and have electric, water and drainage on each pitch, although a long drain hose is needed. We didn't use the showers but as there is only one in each block, there may be a long wait when the site is busy. The farm shop is great with good quality food although it would be expensive to feed a family. It was fine for just the two of us. There is a bit of road noise but not too bad. We had a lovely week and would definitely visit the site again.
Reviewers -mature couple with campervan and bikes.
We chose this site as we were visiting family nearby. It is situated behind a farm shop on a main road, but in a fairly rural area.
I rang to book the day before and was told the shop was open until 7. 00pm for checking in. The satnav took us straight there, but you have to look out for the entrance on the main road. The site is flat and our allocated pitch was gravelly. The tourers are in an area together and further on there are pods and lodges. Part of the touring site is unused for some reason.
The shower block has separate facilities for men and women, all clean, but not very many.
The farm shop is extensive and has a cafe, with a terrace for sitting out in nice weather. Adjacent to the terrace is a large grassy area suitable for children to play, away from the gravel car park near the road.
It was very quiet at night, and dark too, you need a torch. You could hear road noise during commuter hours, but it wasn't obtrusive.
There are lots of tourist attractions in the area, also it is convenient for visiting Chester and the Wirral.
We have just returned from stopping on this site for the second time, and was very pleased and still impressed with the site.
The site is fabulous and you get a real wow factor when staying on site, this time when I booked I requested a fully service pitch only to be told ALL our pitches are fully service hardstanding now. I knew we would arrive quite late 8pm ish, phoned whilst enroute to advise of our arrival time only to be informed that the office closes at 7pm and there would be a note on the door regarding our pitch number etc, ( I was informed over the phone as well our pitch number) and just report to the offices the next day to settle our account.
Pros : very easy to find site and plenty of room when on site ( huge car park ) pitch sizes are more than reasonable, not small at all but not the biggest we have stopped on, pitching up was straight forward and toilet block was only a very short 50 yard walk. Toilets was always spotless and are a real credit to the site.
Pitch price was very reasonable £22 per night. There is a cafe/ restaurant on site but we found to be a little pricey, or shall I say it would be a treat to have eaten there it could soon mount up having young children with us.
Cons : only one gripe really about this site and it is only MY personal preference, there is no play area for the children to play ! the site is of size that I feel would benefit extremely well from losing a small plot of space for a slide and couple of swings, (as one other site owner once said to me happy kids mean happy parents). Its the only thing I have rated the site down on ?!
All in all a very nice well kept clean and well run site well done to all staff and keep up the good work it does show.
We stayed over a busy bank holiday weekend. The site has camping pods and lodges as well as touring pitches. We were able to choose our pitch when we booked on line, the pitch was level and spacious. The toilet / shower blocks were modern and spotlessly clean (the cleaning lady was there bright and early each morning) there were however too few showers for all the campers and pod dwellers on site so there were queues at times. The farm shop is well stocked with goodies and the restaurant serves a very tasty, if a bit expensive, breakfast. We did not have children with us but I feel that the site would benefit from a safe play area.
Our first trip of 2013. We are planning to get the most from our of our motorhome this year, with holidays planned and many one and two night stop-overs. The Hollies is only an hours drive from home which is ideal for mini trips.
We have two dogs so it's important to have great walks from the site as we don't like to drive out in the Motorhome once we have pitched. We walked from the site for about 45 minuets down very quiet country lanes, before getting to Whitegate way, an old railway line, a linear walk of about 8 miles. There are probably lots more walks round about this lovely area. It would be a lovely idea if the owners prepared some information leaflets on detailed walks from the site.
This site is lovely, the shower/toilet facilities were clean, although a little cold they didn't appear to be heated. There is a wonderful farm shop on site which could see me emptying my bank account quite easily, fresh bread/meats/vegetables and a delicious aray of ingredients for the keen cook. There is a lovely gift shop. The restaurant serves breakfast lunches, cream tea's and evening meals. We sampled coffee and cakes which we can highly recommend. I think they may offer BBQ's outdoors in the warmer weather as there was a large outdoor kitchen on site.
The camping pods and lodges looked lovely set amongst the pine trees. We woke to beautiful varied bird song. A lovely little campsite with great on-site shops. If we stay again I wouldn't take any food along except breakfast cereals / milk / tea / coffee as I would buy all my fresh food from their wonderful farm shop.
