 Our 3rd visit in 3 consecutive years and the site was as lovely as ever. Stayed on the CL again and although next to the roadway / access to the site, the view is much better than on the main site in our opinion.

The site didn't appear to be quite as busy this Easter but the ambience was idyllic.

The only negative this time was the grass areas around the pitches and up at the Cafe were boggy at best and completely waterlogged in part. We've had so much rain so understandably, it's going to take time to dry out properly.

The site informed us a couple of days before arriving that there was a local road closure in place that did affect access to the site but gave us directions to follow for the diversion.

We walked along canal towpath into Audlem and enjoyed the hospitality at The Shroppie Fly. Have booked again for next Easter as this is my favourite site and cannot see a time when I won't want to visit.

 Our 2nd stay here at Overwater and can't praise the site and its staff and fellow holiday makers enough for the special ambience felt around this site.

We enjoyed a lovely breakfast on site and a few walks around the site looking at the narrow boats and the geese, swans, ducks and other wildfowl, even spotted a heron.

We stayed on the CL, the pitches are more than adequate, long ehu leads required however. The small commercial site was beautifully maintained as were the spotless facilities which are available to use by all staying on site.

There are also electric car charging points and a dog wash. Lots of seating around the marina itself, nothing better than a gentle amble and then a sit down to watch the world go by.

The Audlem Lass boat service was running from the site into the village, all monies go to charity I believe. Well stocked shop at reception and the on site cafe serves fabulous home cooked fayre. We had Sunday lunch at the Bridge Inn in Audlem.

Very pleased with the price, service and quality of our roast dinner. At a time when finances are a little stretched and lots of camp sites increasing pitch fees or charging extra for electric, this site remains very competitively priced and great value for money.

We have already booked again at Overwater Marina for next Easter.

 Pitches where not the best, facilities where good, and kept clean.

The cafe was nice, we had breakfast including a coffee and an orange, £25 a bit on the pricy side.

25 minutes to walk along the towpath into Audlem, two Pubs and a co-op.

Overall worth a visit.

Reviewer: Us nmatt 15 reviews from this member

 Have visited many times before, but wow how they've extended. Big new field for seasonal pitches.

First impressions very good and pleasing to the eye but realisticly let down by the fact that they've only installed 2 additional loos/ showers (combined)! And they're right at the top end so the 'original' ones prove the most popular.

Inevitable queues to use them. Not good. Don't mind using our own shower but we expect to use the WC's. Previously they had 4 loos for 10 vans and now 6 for 30 vans.

We won't be returning unless this is improved.

 This is a very well maintained site, the toilet block of 5 cubicles was immaculate.

I would recommend approaching the site from Audlem rather than using Coole lane from the Nantwich end as it was very narrow in a lot of places.

We were on the main site rather than the CL and had a fully serviced pitch at £25/n. Grass banks between some of the pitches were raised making it difficult for an awning.

The footpaths around the marina were copiously covered in bird muck ! Its about a 25 minute walk into Audlem along the canal.

The Lord Combermere pub in Audlem did an excellent Sunday roast.

 We arrived and pitched on our chosen CL pitch 5. Whilst it was perfectly adequate, we have booked again and chosen another pitch as the other 4 are further away from the road and whilst the road isn't busy, on pitch 5 you can hear every car go past and some do exceed the speed limit.

Pitch 5 appeared to be the smallest of the pitches also and slightly sloping so levelling ramps needed. EHU on each pitch but need a long hook up cable if on pitch 5.

A picnic bench is provided for each pitch and there is lots of space in between pitches. Pitch 5, gravel on hard standing was brutal underfoot if you only have thin soles.

The whole site is maintained to the highest standard from the marina itself, to the reception area and cafe as well as the CL and small commercial caravan park.

The facilities were spotless and ample for all users. A big thank you for providing individual washroom /wetroom facilities which incorporated a great sized shower, toilet and sink and plenty of hooks for hanging your belongings.

Sadly, the shower was push button operated but you can't have everything and I do understand why! Plenty of walks within the marina complex and caravan site and easy access onto canal.

Audlem village was quaint, friendly and very useful for shopping if needed. We walked along the canal and it took around 30 mins. We weren't rushing and it was interesting to see narrow boats navigating the locks.

This site within a marina offers the perfect get away for quiet time and opportunity to unwind. The lifestyle of narrow boating and that of caravanning / motorhoming sat beautifully hand in hand on this site and created a lovely ambience.

We have arrived home today after a 3 night stay and have already rebooked.

 To Find Site:- From Audlem on the A525 Whitchurch road watch out for Overwater Marina sign and take Coole Lane on the right. This lane is narrow in places but there are passing places. In about a mile turn right into lane leading to Overwater Marina.

Overwater Marina is quite a large operation consisting not only of the marina, a campsite and a separate CL. The latter offers five hardstanding pitches on the approach road to the Marina reception. The pitches are long enough for most units but not wide enough to fit a car or awning alongside although there is plenty of room on the adjacent grass.

Each pitch has its own picnic table. Electric points are to the back of the pitches and are rated at 16 amps using blue CEE17 connectors. A long cable may be required for a couple of the pitches.

There is a handy fresh water tap across from the pitches. CL users are invited to empty waste water into the hedge at the rear of the pitches. CL users can share the campsite toilet facilities which consist of a small toilet block consisting of four “bathrooms” containing a toilet, shower and hand basin.

There is a chemical toilet emptying point at the rear of this block and an excellent motorhome service point beyond that. There is site wide WiFi which is free, login details given on arrival. Its generally OK for a bit of browsing and emails but I doubt the signal strength would allow streaming.

Alternatively, I found the 4G pretty good on site. The main site reception which contains a shop and a café, the shop sells some food essentials and camping and boating equipment. The main campsite has railway themed camping pods.

There appear to be no facilities for children. The terms of using the CL, other than CMC membership, is that full payment is taken on booking. A full refund is offered if you cancel before 30 days of your stay. Cancellation up to 14 days before arrival a 50% refund is offered. The price for the CL includes two adults, and unit. Children, over 5, and extra adults are charged extra.

The main attraction of this site is that it is easy to explore the pretty Shropshire union Canal from the site. Be this by walking into the village of Audlem, about a mile along the towpath or exploring further afield. In the main season the site has a ferry service into Audlem at weekends.

The village has several pubs and a Co-Op food store.

 Our first visit here. We can only describe it as outstanding.

A great welcome from very friendly, helpful staff.

The facilities are modern and kept immaculate.

On site cafe serves nice food and the marina is nice to watch.

There is a small boat which takes you nearly into Audlem (volunteer run, £1 donation to RNLI) otherwise a pleasant 20min stroll on the canal towpath.

Audlem is a gem and we found at least three nice pubs with a collection of interesting shops, including a small Coop supermarket.

We are fully booked up this year so will have wait till next year to return, , , , , can't wait!

 Back for a second visit - even better with amazing weather.

A couple of things to add to previous reviews. You are allowed access to the marina, not to the pontoons. You are given the gate code at check in and you can walk around the marina circuit.

There is a small boat that runs trips to Audelm and back on weekends and bank holidays for those not wanting to walk.

Everything else just as good as last time. An exceptional site that's really well run, highly recommend.

 We booked onto the CL site which is just in front on the touring park. Highly rate this site.

The facilities are not ultra modern but spotlessly clean and all you need.

Campsite users can access the marina which is lovely to walk round. Only 1 mile along canal to Audlem however access to tow path not good for prams/bikes (Not the fault of the campsite).

The on-site cafe was lovely and when we asked if we could move pitches as there were high winds and our pitch was quite exposed, the receptionist could not have been more helpful.

Looking forward to a return stay.
