 Having visited this site many times it quickly became a favourite mostly due to its cleanliness and high standard of Maintenance.

We had not however been for a couple of years and when we visited in June this year we were dismayed to see that

A) the grass had not been cut particularly the area at the back.

B) the whole site looked incredibly scruffy

C) many of the pitches had weeds on them

D) a couple of motor homes were not parked

By the white peg thereby contravening fire regulations

E) the 5mph speed limit around the site was often not adhered to.

Certainly not what we expect from a Caravan & motorhome club site

 We have visited this excellent site before but this is our first visit for a while.

We received a warm welcome from the lovely lady warden and were asked to choose a pitch. It was not busy so plenty on offer!

We had a nice large flat hardstanding at the top of the site overlooking fields behind.

There are plenty of water points and a large spotless warm facility block.

We visited Chesire Oaks as the wife wanted to buy some bits and bobs! Pricey day out. There are plenty of food outlets to take a break in.

You can get the bus to Chester or Liverpool from there, which we have done before having bus passes!

There are 3 pubs in walking distance but be careful on the lane and take a torch after dark.

Some noise from the nearby roads and few aircraft passing over.

Excellent for visiting lovely Chester Liverpool or Ellesmere Port.

TV and phone signals are good and there is CMC WiFi if you have paid! Our subscription had expired but 4G was fine!

Please note arrival time is 1pm now. We arrived later but they had a notice to that effect.

It busy at weekends so outfits could cause blockage on Rakes Lane. The wardens monitor it and get people to pull onto the site past the barrier if they can.

A good site with good access to nearby attractions.

 One of our favourite sites, it is up to the usual high standard we expect from club sites.

It is just across the road from Cheshire Oaks Outlet village, it is about 10-15 minutes walk to the bus stop located in Cheshire Oaks and buses to Liverpool, Chester and Chester Zoo run every 15 minutes.

The Rake pub, which is 200 yards from the site, has recently re-opened under new management as Rake Hall, the atmosphere and food is much improved compared to the cheap and cheerful (sometimes) previous pub.

The only downside to the site is that it is located several hundred yards down Rake lane, which is unlit, doesn't have a pavement and is quite busy, especially around rush hour, a decent torch and visible clothing is a must late afternoons in the winter.

 This CAMC site is nicely and spaciously laid out and makes a change from some car-park like club sites. Pitches are level, and thankfully in the showery weather ths year it was possible to find some not under trees.

Covid restrictions were still partly in place during my stay but the toilet block was open, albeit with some limitations. I had the need to add some days to my stay owing to a car problem, but the wardens were very understanding and helpful in letting me stay even though the site was nominally fully booked at the weekend.

The designer outlet is within 15 minutes walking distance - assuming you are not intending buying more bargains than you can easily carry! Be careful walking on Rake Lane though, especialyy in the dark.

The layout of the centre is confusing to the un-initiated, especially by car. Amongst the buses stopping there is the X1 to Liverpool, which makes for a good free day out if you have an English (national?) concessionary bus pass.

A must for many visitors to Fairoaksis is a trip to the zoo, just a few minutes away. I admit to being surprisingly impressed by the quality and spaciousness of the enclosures, and especially enjoyed the lemur experience. Sadly many exhibits were still under lock-down restrictions.

The zoo justifies a full day visit or more. You can also use the P&R adjacent to the zoo to get a bus into Chester - hope you have better weather for this than I did!

I can't comment on child-friendliness, so have scored 5.

 Good location for shopping, Chester and zoo. North Wales coast within striking distance.

Large flat pitches good freeview and satellite reception, play area for small children on site. Some noise from main road, very little noise from aircraft heading for Manchester airport.

Numerous pubs and restaurants all within walking distance everything from McDonald's to Miller and Carter.

Nearest pub 100 mtrs from entrance closed for refurbishment while we stayed.

Staff excellent very cheerful and knowledgeable about local area. Will be back

 We took advantage of a spell of decent winter weather to get away for a few days. Despite heavy rain in the days before our visit, most of the hard-standing pitches were available to use and we had free choice of the many unoccupied ones. The site-managers were friendly and cheerful on arrival and when we saw them around the site.

During our stay we did several walks by the canal, walked to and round Stanney Woods and visited the Cheshire Oaks Retail Outlet, but in addition Chester Zoo, the Blue Planet Aquarium, the Ellesmere Port Waterways museum and of course Chester itself are all close by and easy to get to.

The easy access to the site, 16amp electric hook-ups, level hard-standings, heated, high quality facilities block and proximity to many places to visit, shops, restaurants etc make this an ideal site for winter, as well as summer caravanning, and of course at this time of year the site is much quieter (and cheaper).

 Nice site who called us a couple of times ahead of our stay to advise of road closure nearby due to tour of Britain.

Told we needed to arrive before 12. 30pm or after 2. 30pm to avoid traffic problems but could not arrive before 12. We arrived 30 mins early, rung ahead and we were welcomed and allowed on pitch.

Nice site, although layout not very picturesque, and pitches are close with only a narrow road between opposite pitches Toilets nice and clean and plenty of showers, although mens loos closed at 10. 15am for cleaning.

Close walking distance across main road to Cheshire oaks outlet, and passing 3 pubs on way back. About 5 miles to chester and we even managed a further day trip to southport too.

Would return if we fancied another close stay to Cheshire oaks but that's all that would attract us to this area again. (expensive as not club members too)

Reviewer: David Klyne 246 reviews from this member

 This is really just an update to my review of 2014. Excellent welcome from the site staff. Since our last visit the toilet block has been completely refurbished to an excellent standard.

In addition the motorhome waste point has been converted to an open grill type which is much more convenient.

If you wish to leave a motorhome on site there are buses to Chester, and beyond, from the Cheshire Oaks Shopping Centre which is a mile from the site.

If walking with children be aware the first half of the route has no footpath and to get to Cheshire Oaks requires crossing a very busy light controlled road.

For the second time we used the Rake Inn and found the food more than acceptable and very good value.

We tend to eat late afternoon so it is usually less busy then.
