 Upside good location for exploring the unexpected delights of the Wirral, downside the site is very tired and much in need of a full refurbishment. Toilet block and facilities not up to the usual C&MC standard. The wardens are very friendly and helpful.

The Wirral circular trail (mainly traffic free) runs adjacent to the site using the old railway line, and the Wirral country park is an easy stroll from the site. The Dee estuary can be accessed from the access to the county park or nearby sailing club.

Nearby West Kirby has local shop’s, eateries and Morrison’s for stocking up on supplies.

A must visit is Port Sunlight, the model village built of Lever Bros money and the factory is still operational – check out Port Sunlight before visiting the site for open days.

Overall, nice area to visit but site needs major attention to bring it up to C&MC standards.

 The site is clean and tidy, and the staff are helpful and welcoming.

The site has some pitches that have a good view on the north wales coast and there are plenty of walks just right outside the gates.

Would I go back there again yes nice and relaxing and the site looked popular.

 Lovely campsite, quiet. nice views if you get them

Clean showers and toilets although in need of update these are actually the worst showers we have seen on a site, they are very basic with nowhere to put your stuff when showering only, 2 hooks on door, would also like to pick our own pitch on booking.

Bit over the top with covid rules and regs as well

 We stayed here for Easter just after lockdown ended and it was wonderful to get away.

The site is very well maintained by a very busy team of wardens! Its down a long lane from the main road but that was fine. Felt open and airy, neighbours didn't feel too close.

Nice walks from site although the beach wasn't really a beach and the dogs came back from their walk incredibly muddy! The beach at West Kirby was much better!

The chippy van which calls on a Tuesday night was a welcome addition, food was good too! Wi fi met the approval of our 16yr old.

We will visit this site again, some pitches have stunning views but I imagine getting on them can be tricky.

 Just returned from a week at this site. Staff very friendly and helpful,

The site is quite remote so you have to drive to do any shopping and bus stop is quite a walk away.

There is a club in walking distance but dogs are not allowed inside ok if it’s sunny but not if it’s cold or raining.

Large pitches, some with great views over the estuary but windy, some of the cul d sac pitch’s very difficult to exit with a 8 metre Motorhome.

Bad points: the toilet block is dated and needs a refurb, if you went to them on an evening there were in a sorry state with water all over the floor (children playing in the toilet block)and unflushed toilets, this is not down to cleaning but the site clientele I hate to think what some people’s houses are like.

We will not return as it’s not up to the clubs usual standard.

 This is a pretty, well maintained site with lots to do in the surrounding areas. We found managers and assistant managers alike to be very friendly and helpful.

The pitches are well set out and the toilet and shower facilities good and far exceeding my expectations.

Give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

 Torrential rain and a waterlogged site doesn’t make for a good camping experience, however the cliff top location of this 93 pitch site at Wirral provides spectacular views over the Dee Estuary towards North Wales. It worth noting that only 9 of the 93 pitches (pitches 10 – 14 and 15 – 19) have uninterrupted views over Estuary.

Very friendly and helpful wardens and stacks of information of things to do and see locally are available in the information ‘shed’. The toilet/facilities block is a tad dated and requires modernisation to take it up to the current Caravan Club standards.

The beach is accessed either from the slipway used by the local sailing club or the steps towards the quirky Shore Cottage and gallery located at the bottom of the cliffs by the estuary.

A traffic free cycleway/footpath is found directly outside the site entrance using the old railway line and provides an easy 2 ½ mile route to West Kirby to the North of the site or 2 ½ miles South to Heswall, both having numerous shops, supermarkets and eateries. The route forms part of the 35 mile Wirral circular trail. Pick up a free guide from the information centre to discover many of the delights and attraction to be found on or around the trail.

West Kirby has a train station with a regular and inexpensive service to Liverpool.

A social club located by the adjoining semi residential caravan park allows none members in and has live music. A fish and chip van visits the site Tuesday evening.

Overall a nice site with ease of access many of the attractions to be found in this surprising interesting part of the country.

 We spent a nice weekend at the Wirral Country Park CMC site. The site is easy to get to from the M53 motorway and has some lovely views across the Dee Estury towards north Wales. I imagine that if you get the weather right, the sunset would be spectacular. It rained quite a bit while we were there and the site does get waterlogged in places with huge puddles creating a bit of an obstacle course!

The pitches were standard CMC hardstandings with instructions to pitch with caravan in the middle, car on the left and awning on the right which seems to be standard now. The site is right on the Wirral Way so if you enjoy walking there are lots of different walks available direct from the site.

We don't live far away (this visit was to get our caravan set up for the new season) and we walk in the Wirral Country Park regularly, but we found a new walk which we hadn't done before. If you don't want to travel far the small towns of Heswall and Wesy Kirby are very close and have nice eating places and some quirky shops. Farther afield you can reach both Liverpool and Chester within half an hour.

However, we felt that this site did not live up to the usual high standards of the CMC. Don't get me wrong, everything was spotless and the wardens are clearly doing an amazing job but you can only work with what you have and the facilities on this site are not good.

The toilet and shower block reminded me of the changing rooms in my old school before the sports pavilion was condemned and demolished. They are old and tired and cold and draughty. I had an extremely unpleasant shower on Saturday morning where the water was only warm, despite being turned to the hottest setting and then getting dried and dressed in the cold, draughty cubicle was not nice at all.

This site could be so good as the location is brilliant but the facilities need completely replaced.

 Good base for exploring The Wirral.

We have just returned from five nights at this site. We had pitch number 14 which had excellent estuary views but was a little exposed in the wind. Facilities were the usual good standard for CC. We were there outside of school holidays so no children around, the site however had very few empty pitches.

There is a beach below the site which can be accessed easily via the Dee Sailing Club just down the road or via steps next to the entrance to the Country Park, we wished we'd known about it from the start, there was no information about the beach on site. Right next to the site is the Wirral Way, which gives good cycling and walking access to either Hooton or West Kirby.

At West Kirby you can Walk to Hilbre Island at low tide. There are two local good eateries, The Cottage Loaf and The Anchor, both are dog friendly inside and outside in their beer gardens, and they serve a good meal too.

Half an hours drive from site is the historic town of Chester with it's Medieval Cathedral, City Walls you can walk along and the unique Chester Rows, well worth a visit if you appreciate history.

There is a small private static caravan site right next to the club site which has a Social Club, this was open at the weekend when we were there, CC members were welcome in there.

 Returned from 3 night break, first visit but certainly not the last. Being a C&MC club site you know the facilities are first class, I have read people saying they missed out on the cliff top pitches, so did we, but it was so windy on that part we are glad we had to pitch elsewhere.

If you like walking it is a great spot to start from, nice coffees at dog friendly GJ's coffee shop 5 mins walk away and meals at the Cottage Loaf pub on the main road. Both offer 18% discount for C&MC members on production of membership card (did in April 2017).
