 We've been to this site quite a few times & we always enjoy it, the owner & his family are very friendly & helpful. Its very reasonable price wise & well worth a visit if you haven't been before, the toilets & showers are very clean with plenty of loo roll & the café food is very nice as well, lots of lovely walks if the kiddies get fed up, we will definitely be going back again

 1st time me and my Husband have been Camping together. Booked last minute, this Site is wonderful, they had every thing we needed, toilets and shower clean, Cafe and Bar very well run and not expensive. Bar had a BBQ and games sat night only £4 for burger and lots of salad. Had a lovely walk round the area and the Fishing Ponds. Local shops easy to find and not far from camp. Fire pit a great bonus to hire. Will visit them again soon.

 Spent just one night here when travelling up to Scotland, visiting friends in the Wigan area. We were made very welcome when we arrived, the pitch was spacious and conveniently located for water, elsan disposal etc. The site was well maintained, toilet facilities etc very clean. Did not use shower so unable to comment. Very conveniently located close to M6 and ideal for our purpose. Did not visit any oubs or shops in the area. Would definitely use again.

 Just arrived back from charity farm. Weather. Brill. When weather good. Any where could be good. Great. Location. Only few mins off m6 and easy to find. Nice welcome. And we had booked so relatively easy check in. And given map to find pitch. Tent field large slightly sloping. We had hook up and easily found our pitch. There were tow portaloos on our field. Loos were functional. Little walk to shower block. Which again were functional we had a walk around the fishing lakes. But never fished. There is small bar. And cafe on site. Which we used. Food fine. All in all nice site. Will go again. Lots of horse stuff. Going on. Great for horse lovers

 We have really fallen in love with this site and have been back already! It's only 40 minutes from home but you could be a million miles away.

The hard standing pitches vary in size and direction which adds to the charm and the camping fields were very spacious.

The fishing lakes are stunning and surrounding countryside a perfect escape. The nearest pub is a respectable walk away and there is a NISA shop nearby with in-store bakery.

The cafe served a great breakfast at reasonable prices and the facilities were clean and functional.

We'll be back first chance we get!

 Very friendly welcome from the owners nothing is too much trouble. Shower facilities are very clean as are the toilets.

Lovely walks around the fishing ponds. It's a very popular site so mid week would be best if you like it to be less busy. Local area is very nice for touring around a. Forty minutes to Liverpool. Not far to travel to Chester and also Cheshire Oaks retail village. Will definitely recommend and return again.

 Just got back from a long weekend at charity farm, this was our first visit and was not disappointed. The owners were very nice, shown us to our pitch which was field H 93 and it was just perfect, toilets just across the field were clean, there was a horse show on whilst I was there in the next field which the owners said we could go and watch, :) great site, clean, great location. Not far from home, might go again this weekend, and being able to hire the camp fires is a great touch.

Reviewer: Holty_rover 1 review from this member

 Party of 12 of us in 4 tents at the bank holiday weekend, weather was great and this site is brilliant. It is obviously a well run farm & horse stabling/riding complex. The facilities were clean & tidy and the showers although 50p were hot. The bonus of having the on-site bar and cafe made it all the more pleasurable. The fishermen amongst us also made use of the really nice fishing ponds. The ability to hire a fire pit gives it that proper camping feel.

Booked again for a weekend in June.

Reviewer: Lozsheffy 12 reviews from this member

 This was our third visit to Charity Farm, the last time being a wash out on August bank holiday, but this has not put us off. The previous visits were in a tent, however this was our first visit in our campervan. The staff are very helpful, the facilities are clean and tidy and the bonus of being able to hire a fire pit makes this our best site so far. There is a café/pub on site which is only small but very friendly and relaxing just like the whole site. Thanks again for a great time

Reviewer: Swiftycorn 3 reviews from this member

 Just returned from a three day two night stay here. We rang on Wednesday night to book in arriving the Friday afternoon and leaving the Sunday afternoon.

Arrived on Friday afternoon and following lengthy discussion with owner we discovered they had no booking for us and site was 'full'. Eventually problem was corrected. We were located on pitch B17. It was a large pitch with level hardstanding area, enough parking for two cars and a reasonable grass area, not overlooked and neighbouring pitches were separated by hedges and trees - bob on.

Charged £17. 00 per night for caravan with EHU, £3. 00 extra charge for second car. We did not use our awning but there is extra charges in place for extras ie dogs, awnings etc - some a bit pricey given that no one else can use space on your pitch.

Showers and toilets are clean but basic - toilets are open for use by anyone on site including fishermen and people using equestrian centre. Showers have charge of 50p but water was red hot and plentiful.

The site has no security barrier system in place but this did not seem to cause any problems due to location of site.

The site is located around a working farm that has a large livery business and there are four fishing lakes situated around the site.

All in all this is a good site with some issues that could be addressed to turn it into a great site.


* large, level hardstanding pitches.
* easy to find.
* Small pub and cafe on site - Cafe a little over priced and a bit basic.
* very clean and well mainatined.
* Very quite and peaceful.


* Issues on arrival.
* Not child friendly site, the fishing ponds don't have locked gates to keep wandering children out.
* free for all coming and going people using livery and fishing lakes.
* No play area for children.
* only four showers for whole site - could do with more.

Overall, I feel this is a place for horses and horsey people or fishermen.
