We've just spent 4 nights at Overwater, while on a cycling break.

The whole site and marina complex is immaculately maintained and is a pleasure to stroll around (and enjoy the fantastic coffee and cakes in the on-site cafe).

The gravel pitches are fine, apart from the size of some chunks of gravel, which meant walking around slightly difficult.

The shower block was well kept, with four individual privacy cubicles.

Although there are supposed to be 10 pitches (aside from the CL), we were squeezed onto pitch 11 adjacent to the shower block. Our side view was overlooking the chemical waste and recycling bins, which could do with screening off. In addition, we were woken early the first morning with a tanker emptying the septic tank right alongside our van.

Location wise, we found the site great, with easy access onto quiet roads, and enjoyed rides to Whitchurch and Nantwich.

The walk to Audlem was a bit protracted, as access to the towpath means walking in the opposite direction for quite some time, though at weekends they run a small boat back and to.

All in all, it's a really good site and we would return.

Found this great site which was right by the quiet Shoropshire union canal and the Marina, which is the main purpose of the business.

We stayed jn kne of tbe five CL pitches adjacent to the touring park.

Very impressed with the whole site which is spacious, clean and friendly. It looks like a lot of thought and effort has been put into it, including disabled facilities.

Lovely canal walks to Audlam or Nantwich and nice walks around Audlam too.

If you like a peaceful place, wildlife and gentle walks, this is perfect. Also a great on site cafe.

We wanted a site on the way back from the Forest of Dean for a couple of nights. Found this one and what a good site it proved to be! There is a CL, with the usual 5 pitches, where we stayed.

Very large gravel pitches with lots of space between pitches and lots of space behind. Very good access too. Then there is a small site with equally large pitches, and where also the toilet block is. It's not far from the CL area; toilet block has cubicles with WC, basin and shower, Very spacious and modern, and also clean at all times.

There is also 1 washing-up sink in a separate small room. It's interesting to have a walk round the marina.

Cycling is possible along the canal, but in the direction of Nantwich there is just a grass path, however, in the direction of Audlem it is a hard surface. We cycled quite a way past Audlem, then called into the Coop for a few bits on the way back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it.

This is one of the best sites we have been to; as per the previous review, you don't need to pay the extra for the commercial site, if you are a CAMC member, the only difference is that the facilities and bins are to be found here, but it's not at all far from the CL.

The photos don't do the sites justice, they are not an afterthought but properly appointed level, large gravel hardstandings with easy access, no having to drive over grass to get to them.

The marina is interesting and there are good walks along the canal in both directions and from the top of the site over to the river Weaver.

Nantwich is the nearest town, you will need to visit Morrisons on the southern edge for fuel.

A fabulous little site, lovingly cared for by the family that created the marina about 8 years ago. Set next to the Shropshire Union Canal in peaceful south Cheshire, it's an ideal place to get away from it all. Everything is new and first rate, from the fully serviced pitches to the excellent toilet block with piping hot water for the four combined toilet/washroom/shower rooms (one with disabled facilities). You can have a full English breakfast or lunch at the cafe a hundred yards away, or sample their excellent ice cream. The picturesque village of Audlem is a brisk 30 minute walk away down the canal towpath, and has three pubs, a co-op supermarket and a newsagent. A similar distance along the canal in the opposite direction is the Secret Nuclear Bunker - well worth a visit. The site is astonishing value for 19 a night. The adjacent CAMC CL is 16 a night; it's well worth paying the extra 3.

What a gem! We stayed on the CL which had views out towards reception. Staff were helpful and friendly. The site toilet block was warm and clean with the shower, toilet and sink all in the one room. We stayed 3 nights and it was nothing but tranquil. Nantwich and Audlem are a 10 minute drive away for your shopping needs.

The on site cafe is an added bonus. Will certainly be back.

A truly excellent site, we stayed on the touring site for 3 nights. The pitches are all hard standing and are fully serviced with lots of room between.

Facilities are modern and immaculate, they will spoil you for any other site.

Cafe on site is open from 9. 30 until 4. 00 and does good breakfasts with superb coffee, highly recommended.

As it is a marina the reception doubles as a chandlery but many of the consumables are relevant to motorhomers.

There is also car hire on site and at weekends a trip boat runs a regular service into Audlem.

Audlem is a pretty village within easy walking or cycling along the canal towpath.

A real gem of a site and excellent value for money, with the CL being even cheaper.

Just spent one night at this site. Really very impressed. Lovely spacious pitches. Shower block roomy and very clean. We took the Audlem Lass boat into Audlem (1 each way to raise money for the RNLI) and walked back. It is a 30 minute delightful walk from the marina into Audlem along the Shropshire Union canal. It is worth noting that the site is quite isolatd and if you cannot walk well driving is a must to get to pub/restaurant/supermarket. We did not use the club house or try the cafe but it was busy and looked good. We ate dinner at The Lord Combermere and food was very nice and reasonably priced. They also serve a good pint of Shropshire Gold 👍. Will return to this site and heartily recommend

Came back to Overwater marina for the 4th time. Wanted to get on to the CL site but no spaces available. We got on to pitch 10 on the new part of their site.

The site will be a lot better when it matures in the future I am sure. At the moment the grassy areas are seeded and coming up, but the lack of the rain with the weather has possibly held it back a little? That aside. Our pitch was a large size for our truck of 25ft, The ground was really good to be on with a fully serviced set up too. All this for just 18!

Well worth every penny.

The fully fitted shower block and toilets was excellent. Being new though. I do wonder if it will stay this way?

On the two nights we stopped over, I went out and closed the main door various times because some folk did not seem to be able to remember how to do this?

Possibly a return lever to pull the door shut may help those folk who can open a door. But cannot close one!

What is it about leaving toilet paper on the floors too? It wouldn't take long to become a bin! What is it about some folk? Either use common sense and treat it like it belonged to you or. Stop at home! Why spoil it for the rest of us?

These people have made a really nice job of what will become a really lovely place to be, if only we use it properly.

We really look forward to coming again. Hopefully. Mature adults?

Just a thought. A pitch plan for booking would be good.

Can the wifi be extended to the pitches by the shower block? There seems to be a 'shadow' which prevents a connection that is useable? If you walk up the path out off the new site, you can then connect a tad better. I would have thought it Just needs boosting.

Sorry for the rant, but some folk really get my goat!

This is our third visit here. We love it. It is so peaceful whth the sounds of birds including pheasants and an owl this time. The hard standing is great but could be a little wider. With all the recent rain, going round the off side to empty water waste etc was very muddy on the grass. If you know there has been rain bring your wellies. As said before waste water is emptied in the hedge, picnic bench provided. Plenty of walks and the cafe is great. On Friday evening we had a Bistro in the cafe all pre-booked. The toilets are spotless and the wifi is free. This site is perfectly accessible including the coded lock on the toilet block at night. After all if a blind caravanner can do it. We love this site and will keep returning. They are opening a Touring Site adjacent to this CL with its own toilet and shower block with hook up and water provided to each pitch but no waste water emptying provided on each pitch. The price for the CL is currently 15 and the touring site is 18.
