 Very peaceful site but with plenty of farm and horse activity to watch,

Hot 15 minute showers,

Very friendly and accommodating owners.

All the attractions of Chester city is a bike ride or walk away along the river and the location is a great mix of city and country life.

 No problem booking were told if no one about select a pitch and catch up later.

Friendly people, had to find them to pay. Small tent area but good pitch.

No problems the amenities are dated but clean and work well. Not busy and quiet.

Working farm, with the exercise area near the tent pitches so you can hear it.

All in all we enjoyed our trip.

 A very neat place.

We were warmly welcomed.

They were very helpful to advice our pitch.

You can easily walk to the bus station to Chester.

We will be back.

 Delightful small campsite in a peaceful farm setting. Impeccably clean and well run, with friendly, respectful owners.

A pity, on this occasion, that the arrogant owners of a pair of motorhome thought it appropriate to create so much noise at night! They looked retirement age, but acted like a Benidorm hen party.

None of this the fault of the campdite; so still highly recommended.

 Communication on booking via email with Pete was fine, Easy access from a main road into Chester via Ferry Lane then the long farm driveway.

A large grassed paddock is the main area for pitches, there is a paved area just outside that serves as a hardstanding but the ground was very firm, and the weather kind on our 3 day stay so we opted for sunny pitch 4.

The site facilities are clean but dated, I used our own but husband said the toilets were clean. Shower tokens are available from the farmhouse, and 20p required to access the warm water for washing dishes. Lovely farm with stables, a few cows & many horses.

You can access the River Dee from the farm, also a walk back down to the main road gives you the bus stop into Chester, we chose to walk it as it was flat, took about 50 mins.

The closest shops for supplies would be the Tesco along the Chester Rd or Morrisons across the river in Saltney, both a good 30 min walk, or 5 mins in a car.

Just a heads up, if you don't like dogs then maybe give this one a miss as the friendly farm dogs roam free as do the visitors dogs, our old girls never move far from the van, and loved not being tethered.

A truly lovely, basic, laid back site

 Overall the campsite was basic but in good location, had to pay extra for washing up station and showers which wasn't stated.

Facilities weren't overly clean.

 Situated a short walk from Chester along the river. The site is nice and quiet and pitches are big.

All grass so depending on what time of year you go it could be muddy or not. Facilities are right out of the 70's.

No heating that I could see, very basic, toilet in the mens wobbled when you sat on it and you have to get tokens from the farmhouse for the showers (we used our van).

Grey waste disposal was difficult, you have to lift your waste water up to waist height to drain it, a bit odd and not easy to do. The chemical waste is very rudimentary, basically a hole in the ground with a loose metal plate over it.

I've had to give a rating for customer service, but never saw anyone when we were there, so can't comment so I've scored it down the middle.

 Great location to visit Chester. Clean facilities. Well kept grass. Nice to have a shower token included.

The tent area is near the horse field and training area which I love but if you are not fir horses and early morning sounds chose the area farthest from the horse gate.
