 We arrived at Thornleigh Parc farm 1st of October, a very warm welcome awaited us.

Lovely little place we stayed till 2nd Oct, wish it was longer! Facilities lovely and clean.

Well maintained pitch. A lovely quiet site away from the hustle and bustle of life, but yet close enough to all amenities.

I can't wait to go back.

 Lovely, peaceful site on a farm with riding stables. Good windbreak of trees, and a level walk either to the River Dee (waterside walk/cycle path to Chester) or to the bus stop at the end of the lane. Bus to Chester every 20 mins or so.

Shower/toilets and info - good recycling system and sells their own beef.

Great site for exploring Chester with its amazing architecture or using the cycle routes to explore the Wirral with Botanic Gardens etc.

 Excellent travel directions from campsite owner made finding the site easy. I always solo camp, forever looking for quiet, low key, good basic facility sites and Thornleigh Park farm is one for my list.

Two areas, one for a few tents, the other for caravans-Camper Vans.

The site is in a busy area but still secluded enough to be peaceful. Surrounded by trees, a working farm with friendly owners and within easy reach of shops and other amenities if required.

If you seek on site entertainment or Holiday Camp type surroundings then Thornleigh Park Farm is not for you.

If you are happy with good clean facilities, well tended flat grass, tree sheltered camping areas and interesting local walks and cycle paths then it's a Campsite well worth visiting.

Marks out of 10 from me is 10 and I look forward to my next visit.

 Great value for money. Stayed here for 1 night on the way to Wales. Level grass pitch with electric £15. 50.

Charge for showers but acceptable considering the low camping fee. Currently 40p for male shower but we’re told by a lady looking after the site that the showers were changing to tokens at 80p which I think is excessive.

On a working farm. 45 minute walk into Chester beside the river. Shower block was adequate could be improved with a few minimal changes. Would use again.

 Pleasant and quiet site. Showers and toilets basic but clean.

Would stop here again. Handy for biking or walking into chester.

Can order meat which has been reared on the farm either to enjoy while you are there or they will freeze pack for you to take away

Reviewer: Brianalfred 7 reviews from this member

 This was an ideal site for our purpose - an overnight stay to get to the Birkenhead morning ferry. The site is quiet, clean, neat, and well kept.

All facilities are clean and in good order - an amazing range of facilities for the price - £6pppn! The shower is included in the price and allows you an unheard-of 15 minutes!

There's even pot-pourri in the shower area. We'd been camping in the Lake District surrounded by hills and rocks - and by contrast this is a bit flat and not noted for its scenery!

But it's ideal for the zoo or exploring Chester and Liverpool.

The CL field is surrounded by a dense growth of tall trees and more attractive than the general camping field, but you do get some curious horses studying you from across the fence and their occasional galloping thunder is terrific!

Peter is VERY friendly and helpful right down to a map of the area for shops and sights on request. He also sells top quality beef from the farm.

Thank you for a great site. (I don't remember any special facilities for children so it gets a lower rating for that)

 Lovely site well drained field lots of space. Electric hook up.

Really quiet Facilities lovely and clean.

Cycling from the site is great. We went in to Chester but thought the park and ride was on to catch the bus. It wasn't 😬 so walked luckily the weather was dry but a fair walk about 45mins.

Definitely will return.

 This site was in a rural setting, very peaceful and secure. Level field with ample electric points around site.

Owners where very helpful plus additional information leaflets in washing area.

Toilets and showers where spotless an obvious females touch with flowers near sinks. We are pensioner's one with artificial knee. The walk to bus stop is 3/4 mile which we managed without problems. The bus stop is outside car dealership so bus goes to the right to Chester.

 Excellent site, very clean and tidy. Good sized pitches, beautiful scenery.

The only negative for us was that we booked as it was so close to the park and ride but when we got there it had been closed due to Covid, no fault of the site but maybe they could mention this when sending out their email regarding Covid restrictions
