 Our first time to this site and it was lovely. Good value for money. The owner was really friendly.

The site is nice with some nice views we had a hardstanding pitch due to the amount of rain.

Facilities basic but clean.

It was a 10 min walk to the park and ride into Chester which cost £ 2. 00 return brilliant value.

We will definitely be returning again.

 Stayed here on a cycle tour of North Wales.

This is a Rural farm campsite.

Not far from Chester and close to the Deeside cycle path.

The owners are very friendly and helpful

The Campsite mainly motorhomes and caravans in a large field.

And the campsite for tents is at the far end in a small field next to horse corral area.

So can be a bit noisy also I was the only tent, If any large tents were there you would be very close neighbours.

But It's ok for a backpacker/cyclists stopover. £6 a night.

Found only one watertap outside toilets, and only one sink.

Showers need token 40p on timer, and toilets ok very clean +pot wash area

Also leaflets on view for places to visit.

Relaxed Farming atmosphere lots of animals as expected.

 Hi. To all those people going to visit Chester! Try the open bus tour and the boat ride worth every penny? so get your duel ticket from the bus driver! it's cheaper than the riverside.

You must stay at thornleigh park farm, it's an outstanding little site. Very very clean with plenty of hot water in the shower block and the people are friendly.

The dogs on the farm are friendly also? but they can get into you awning if you don't take care, so don't leave rubbish outside. Great Great site.

 We love visiting Chester. This site appealed partly because of its location within walking distance of a park and ride and the good reviews. We were not disappointed.

The welcome was warm but not overpowering, we used a grass pitch which was fine despite all the recent rain nice and level with the grass short. We were also welcomed by the farm great dane!

Yes the facilities are basic but permanently spotless, the showers were hot, perhaps a little heating wouldn't have gone amiss on a cold April morning. I am being picky at £14 it's tremendous value and we will go again

 This site is great as a base for visiting Chester. With it's Roman history, the Cathedral, the Chester Rows, The River Dee, Chester Zoo and the outlet shopping centre all in easy driving distance. Chester City Park and Ride is also just a mile from the site.

The site itself is on a horse stables, with 3 hardstandings and 5 grass pitches all with hook-up.

The facilities were clean and tidy but dated.

There was also a washing up area and information desk with club magazines and books to borrow.

For £14 a night it's a nice place to use as a base but there are only basic facilities on site and no space for children to play. But we did enjoy watching the horses being brought in and exercised.

 We have just returned from 3 nights at this site, fabulous really enjoyed it. Facilities are very good for what you pay, very impressed. Location is great especially if you rely on your bike to get around, close to Chester, taxi fare also very reasonable. Such a refreshing change to have a lovely laid back site owner, no sets of rules posted up, grass not cut around your unit early in the morning and the toilets are not closed for cleaning for a couple of hours and at a time when it is most inconvenient for customers, a relaxed cleaning programme is brilliant. The toilet and shower facilities are very, very clean. We can't wait to return, very quiet, very relaxing.

 Location, Location, Location!

Stayed here for 6 days and loved it. Perfectly located for an easy walk (all on the flat) to the Park & Ride which takes you straight into Chester City Centre. £2. 00 return. There is also a walk for those who are fitter, and again, this is all on the flat. People also used their cycles. We arrived on a day it had poured down, but the ground was very firm and the drainage was great. Easy to site the van and set up. Purchased tokens for the shower from the owners, who were very helpful and provided a hand drawn map of the local area. This is a very small site so don't expect too much. My only gripe was that the shower/toilet block looked a bit 'tired' and could do with an upgrade but that said, it was perfectly adequate for our needs. We had a great stay at this site and would recommend it and hope to stay again some time in the future.

 Small Caravan Club CL. Working farm with stables£13. 50 per night. Toilets/Shower token 40p. Re-cycling bins. 3mile walk/cycle to Chester along riverside path. Park and ride 20min walk from farm. Retail park 5min drive. Nice site away from city centre but close enough to go and visit during your stay. Great value any time of the year to visit Chester, Wirral or North Wales.

Reviewer: Fidibury 38 reviews from this member

 This was our first visit to this site, staying for 6 days over the Christmas period. The site is a Caravan Club CL on an acre paddock next to the owners farm. The farm has stables and horses are always in the adjoining fields. Owners are very friendly and helpful. There is also a small separate area for 3 or 4 camping pitches. Pitches with EHU are all grass but the ground drains very well so even with all the rain we have had recently there were no issues.

On site there are the usual water tap and waste disposal points but there is an added advantage of having toilets and showers. Tokens are needed for the showers - 40p each bought from the owners. They also have recycling bins.

One of the owners dogs will always be out wandering around but didn't cause any bother to our dogs at all.

The site is located at the end of a long track just under 3 miles from Chester City Centre. There is a lovely walk into the city along the cycle path next to the River Dee. Other walks are straight from the site.

There is a retail park about 20 minutes walk from the site with all the normal shops.

This is certainly a site that we would revisit in the future. At £13. 50 a night for a unit with 4 people it is well worth visiting.
