 We have had a magic 3 days at Golborne my husband had 2 sessions of fishing and he was over the moon with the whole set up and the quantity and quality of the fish he caught " fisherman`s Dream "

The site is well organised, tidy and clean

We visited Chester, and spent time relaxing

The Steward Charlie and Bob are so welcoming and genuinely friendly

I wish them well in their new venture

The cost for a service pitch was very good value for money

 Cracking little CC site in a quiet location just outside the city of Chester.

The managers of the site are a delight to deal with. Lovely couple that always amenable. As its a CC site there are only 5 pitches.

Views are stunning. Men and women's separate toilet and shower facilities. Clean but a tad dated, but this isn't a problem.

Well worth a visit.

 All good here. Site is quite private with great views and easy access from A41.

Café and shop give a discount to site patrons and food is good with a well stocked shop.

We are winter visitors and have had hard frosts each morning but at £15 per night for CCC members it offers great value.

Tickets and showers are in need of a little TLC but functional and spacious.

 A great CS behind Applegates Farm Shop, Cafe and a couple of other businesses.

We were on a almost level gravel hardstanding that had a view over the grass area to open countryside,the horses in the adjacent field adding to the rural impression. Power and water on post at the pitch.

Farm shop full of nice food and a reasonable selection of essentials for top up or emergencies, cafe offering was good.

Just one male and one female shower with an extra unisex toilet but plenty of hot water! Great value site out of season but not a great deal within walking distance to tempt you off site.

Reviewer: K100rsblack 4 reviews from this member

 Booked for 3 nights mid August. Access to pitch was very easy, level and plenty of room to manoeuvre. Each pitch had its own tap and power point. Well stocked shop.

Single occupancy shower/WC clean, plenty of hot water, shower good. I booked to do some fishing but despite being told that there were carp to 15lb never saw any movement to support this.

Fished over 2 days, plagued by small silvers which is not what I was after. Pool very over grown with lily pads and encroaching bank vegitation, needs a good spell of maintenance. Quite a bit of road noise from the A41.

So overall pros and cons however there was one major con. There was dog mess on the edge of the grass opposite the caravans which the children were using as their play area.

It appeared at a time when nobody staying on caravan pitches had a dog???

Very unpleasant and avoidable if the person exercising their dog was more diligent. Not going to return.

 Basic 5 pitch site, hard standing pitches and grass area well kept.

Basic facilities one toilet and shower for each male and female and a single unisex toilet.

Facilities could of done with a little bit more heating especially in January when all 5 pitches were occupied!

Overall decent value for money!

Reviewer: 22114 11 reviews from this member

 Stayed here as a one night stopover. Really nice site. You pull in from the A41 and have a farm shop with café. On the other side is the campsite which comprises of 5 hard standing pitches, each with electric and water point. There is a small grass area for tents and free wifi that works!

Facilities are two shower/toilet rooms, one for gents, one for ladies and an additional unisex toilet.

There is a village about 2 miles away, turn right out of site, follow the footpath by the road for a few minutes, then turn left onto country lane and keep walking. Couple of pubs, spar shop, post office, Indian restaurant/takeaway and a couple of other places to eat. Paid £15, would certainly return.

 We stayed at this campsite for two nights for the purpose of visiting Chester Zoo. The location of the site is perfect for this as it was only a 15 minute drive. The owners were really friendly and helpful.

It is a small site with only room for 5 units on hookup but the pitches were really nicely laid out with plenty of room for our campervan and awning. It is a relatively new site but there were some nice touches such as a bench for every space.

We also took advantage of the free wifi on offer. There is one female and one male shower which also contain the toilet but there is also a unisex toilet. As its a small site we didn't have any problem with queuing.

The showers were really nice and warm with plenty of pressure. There is a farm shop on site which is definitely worth a visit

We would definitely visit again.

 Stayed here for 6 nights in May and found the site quite pleasant, although there was continuous road noise from the A41 50 metres away, pitches were levelled hardcore which drained very quickly and quite spacious, glorious views across the fields as far as the eye could see and water to each caravan but you still require wastemaster.

Farm shop on site selling some good products and a cafe selling farm shop goodies.

Anyone visiting the site must visit the Ice Cream parlour about 15 mins away. I wont spoil it for you but it is amazing. Especially if you have children.

Finally there is a park & ride a couple of miles away on the A41. £2 pp will take you into centre of Chester & return.

Reviewer: Philip Howarth 9 reviews from this member

 Just had five night stay at this site with friends, an excellent site. Although there is some work in progress, electricity and individual water supply to each hard standing pitch together with free Wi-Fi.

A compact (1 ladies + 1 gents+ another being built) but excellent heated shower/ toilet/ wash hand basin rooms. Pitches are segregated at the rear from the farm buildings by a tall attractive fence with newly planted bushes, lovely clear open views towards the Welsh hills to the front of the pitches. Also some grass camping pitches.

A good centre for visitor attractions, only 10 minutes from one of the Chester Park and Ride locations, Bunbury Mill, Shropshire Canal, Beeston, Chirk and Shrewsbury all within easy driving distance, some excellent local pubs also.

There is a farm shop, Artisan workshops and an antiques shop adjacent to the site. Easy access to the site from the A41 with a wide entrance, a little care required when leaving. Some traffic noise but not intrusive.

Would highly recommend.
