 What a gem of a site. Beautiful, peaceful location. Great pitches laid out well. Toilet block excellent, spotless at all times of the day. In the grounds of a manor house which has wonderful woodland walks and cafe in the manor house that opens occasionally.

No playground for children, but lots of open space and lovely grounds to explore.

Lots of places to visit in the area and lovely villages close by.

 Fabulous setting for this site with excellent shower block. Wifi included traveled to our pitch which was not near the utilities. Ideal site for a quiet restful day or two.

Reviewer: Bilko2 5 reviews from this member

 We stayed for 5 nights up to closure of the site on 31st October. If you want a site a little different from the norm, this could be for you. The pitches are fairly level and well spaced out. The facilities block is new, warm and clean. The site's 'usp' is its setting in the grounds of a gothic mansion house. The grounds are lovely and for most of the time you have them to yourself - public only allowed in two days per week. The site is fairly rural so not good if you want to walk to pub or shop. There are many attractions nearby - Lyme Park, Tatton Park, Jodrell Bank, Knutsford to name but a few.

Note for Corrie fans - Capesthorne was the setting for a wedding featured early November.

 We visited this site on 26/27th July and were blessed with excellent weather. Beautiful campsite nicely laid out and well maintained. A little more expensive than we usually pay at 25. 00 per night but worth every penny of it. The grounds are amazing and we were lucky to have arrived on a weekend with a wedding taking place and treated to an super display of fireworks and also it was the weekend of a classic car show which all added up to a fabulous weekend break. We visited the house and found it wonderful. The utility block was modern and spotless. We could not find any fault with this site and will return and would recommend.

 What a gem of a site. Grand entrance through the auto barrier up a long drive leading to the manor house. Caravan site clearly marked to the left of the main hall. Large mainly grassy area with ample space and hardstandings. As previous reviews mention very modern, immaculate shower/toilet block which also houses a washer dryer. We only stayed 1 night so didn't use facilities but they looked spotless. Plenty of local pubs to grab a pint and food. (rec Davenport Arms approx 2-3 miles away, excellent food) The estate grounds/gardens were beautiful and we had a lovely stroll around on a gorgeous sunny day. Not really one for the children although there was plenty of open space there was no kids playground etc. This added to the peace and tranquillity of the place to be honest, just how we like it. Not the cheapest place to stay at 25 per night but worth paying a little extra for the grand surroundings and excellent shower/toilet facilities. Highly recommended for a peace and quiet weekender.

 Why were we the only people here? I have no idea as this is a beautiful site. Nothing to add to previous review actually. Amazing setting. With just the sounds and sights of the countryside -pheasants, owls, hares, bats etc. Excellent toilet block, although I think it would be inadequate if the site was full. Never met any staff, but there was a phone contact number. The place to be if you want to get away from it all.

 Found this site really handy for a concert we went to at Gawsworth Hall just a few miles away.

The site is very nicely maintained with mainly hard standing pitches. The entrance is particularly grand as you drive down towards the stately home. The site was virtually empty for the 2 nights we were there with only 5 units on site. Perhaps the rather steep 25 per night for 2 persons kept some people away. The on site facilities include lots of drinking water taps, several grey water disposal points - (one especially for motorhomes) and a hedged off chemical toilet disposal point. The surroundings are very nice being in the grounds of a stately home. The site is unusual in as much as there is no reception - when we rang to book a pitch we spoke to a very nice lady who was helpful and friendly. We were asked to pay at the time of booking by card and were allocated a pitch number later by email - No. 20 in our case. You also get some general information and the rules of the site. When you arrive at the entrance a barrier blocks your progress for a moment and then magically raises to let you in. You then simply follow the signs and head for your pitch. We had no contact with any staff whatsoever (apart from the phone call) except for an envelope left in the toilet block with our name on it which contained the receipt for the card payment and a car and caravan pass for display in the windscreen. None the less this is a great site with very modern and clean toilets/showers. If you can swallow the hefty nightly fee of 25(30 on Bank Holiday Weekends) it is definitely recommended. By the way - you do get free entry into the Gardens and walks for your money.

 We had the good fortune to stay at this site recently. It is tranquil and beautiful if you want to get away from it all so to speak. Staff are courteous and polite and couldn't have been more helpful when we needed somewhere to stay at short notice after being let down by another site. Plenty of open space and large pitches, both grass and hard standing, with electric hook up make it easy to select exactly what you want.

Marked facilities as 8/10 as nothing extra like fully serviced pitches for example, but had everything that we personally needed.

There are no specific facilities for children, for example a dedicated play area like some other sites, but this only added to our enjoyment as it meant even more peace for us! (Nothing against children really!)

There is an immaculate, facilities block housing, toilets, bathrooms with showers as well as laundry facilities. The site is within the grounds of Capesthorne Hall, a stately house where the Bromley-Davenport family still dwell.

Staying on the site entitles you to enjoy the gardens, lakeside and grounds freely (some 100 acres). The main house is only open on certain days but you get a reduced entrance fee for a tour of part of the house, if you are staying on site.

While we were there, there was also a classic car show in the grounds on the Sunday, which was a bonus for us. Weddings are held at the house on some Saturdays meaning that sometimes access to some of the grounds may be restricted. All in all though a great little find

We are so delighted to have found this site which we believe has only reopened last year. Think we will be back again soon!

 This was our first return to Capesthorne Hall Caravan Park for over three years. The touring park had been closed for this time for other projects within the park. It was a very welcome return. Gone were the cosy, yet a little dated toilet / shower facilities in the courtyard. Replaced by an ultra modern, eco friendly stunning shower block. With two shower cubicles with there own wash basin, mirror and toilet providing a spacious area in both the mens and womens. Plenty of hot water and very modern hand driers and baby changing facilities in both areas. The facility block was a little cold, this may be just teething problems as we were literally the first to stay after the re-opening on 1. 10. 12.

The pitches were a little narrow but offer enough room for a unit on the hard standing and cars parked on the well kept grass next to the pitch. Space between the pitches was very generous offering privacy and the access road adequate if again a little narrow.

With the hall and beautiful gardens literally on your doorstep this makes for a very pleasant stay. The village of Chelford is 3.5 miles away and has enough to meets your shopping needs.

For the price of 25. 00 per night I was expecting a serviced pitch, whilst a little disappointed to discover they are not serviced pitches I was not disappointed with the overall stay and I strongly recommend Capesthorne Caravan Park.

Imagine telling your friends and family you are going to your weekend retreat at Capesthorne Hall and then driving up the long drive infront of the hall to pitch up for a lovely weekend.

Thanks to the owner who was extremely helpful and we will see you again in 2013.

 Well what can I say! This is a beautiful site in a fabulous setting with no noise other than cows and sheep!Spent 6 nights here and will be going back for more. Toilet block very clean,with plenty of hot water and did not have to queue once, even when all the pitches were full (about 30+ pitches).
Good well spaced pitches , lovely walks in the grounds very tranquil at night. Good shopping in Macclesfield which is only 8 miles from site. Not for the faint hearted at night, bring a powerful torch if you want to use toilet block!
