 We have been here before and love the access to the forest trails. The road and railway are noisy but not too bad at night.

This time, the site facilities were poor, not very clean and several out of order.

The site management were invisible and we found the site noise was much louder and later than usual, probably due to the lack of management.

There are no activities for children on site but the forest more than makes up for it. There are lots of places to visit nearby.

 Good location near to the train station and forest tracks for walks or biking. Half a mile from Go Ape.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Cleaning take place between 1030-1200 each day.

Nearest Pub is approx 1 mile away. Nearest Cafe is 5 minutes walk away at the train station.

On site Facilities are basic but adequate enough.

Paid £58 for two nights which is quite expensive but I suppose all campsites have increased there prices.

Found it quite noisy being near a road and some people having a party till 0100 and keeping us awake. 😴☹️

 Amazing location - we were up and out every morning into the forest, and back much later in the day. Plenty to keep us busy on our cycles in there.

The campsite itself was effective: showers and toilets fine (although as others have said, seemed to close for a LONG time for cleaning). The indoor pot wash is welcome. It's a bit bare bones, but for what we needed it for, it did the job.

The pitches are not level, and it did get VERY muddy on the centre main field. It's quite tricky to work out where your pitch begins / ends, but the warden did half map it out for us.

 We have been here before and find the location fantastic - you can walk into the forest directly from the site, and the kids love the swings in the woods.

We find this site to be a bit less friendly in atmosphere than other club sites we have been on, one warden lovely, one a bit grumpy - not as relaxing, but it doesn't matter too much for us as we are usually out all day.

Toilets clean and plenty of hand wash, but not many facilities considering the size of the park. Nice high hedges to pitch your tent besides. There are bricks you can borrow for a BBQ.

Recommend the GoApe in the woods next to the site for activities or the crockly trail c. 20mins away, the Goshawk pub with a play area c. 10 mins away and the chippy van at this site on a fidays.

Reviewer: Wetwellies 13 reviews from this member

 A pleasant site with lovely surroundings for children. My friend and I took our boys of five and two.

The good : Friday chippy van had huge portions, and tasted delicious. Super location for the forest and associated activities in the area, we did the crocky trail and Beeston castle. Both amazing. Site quiet for traffic and well maintained.

Rope swings in woods on site and lots of small clearings to explore that we considered to be the top feature of the site. Toilets very clean throughout stay. Wardens seemed OK generally, one older gentleman was lovely. Shop has milk, ice cream and other camping essentials.

Could be better : showers really, really hot which suits me but I wouldn't use for children. Code accessed toilets which was a major inconvenience as it isn't an easy code to remember like a significant date, and a hassle when you're wrestling with the a small child.

Really comes across as unwelcoming although I can understand that they don't want walkers using the facilities constantly. Fields and site generally pools with water quickly when it rains and is waterlogged. More of a problem if you have a tent.

In summary, we loved it for a few days and would go back for a week but it lacked a certain something for a longer stay.

 Excellent welcome from campsite warden Paul who couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful (an asset to the CCC team).

Well maintained, comfortable site with adequate, clean facilities even when full at the weekend.

Lots to see and do in immediate and surrounding area.

Reviewer: Sandgrounder52 12 reviews from this member

 We are leaving today after 6 nights on a hardstanding pitch.

The site is easy to access, directly off a B road, right next to Delamere Station. No single track roads or potholes! Pitches are mainly flat and are well spaced giving both privacy and a sense of openness. The site is the shape of a long thin triangle. We were offered 2 locations: near the road or alongside the railway line. I thought the road was quite busy so we went for the railway line side.

Although the trains were quite loud, they aren’t frequent and I didn’t find them bothersome (possibly because I have lived close to railway lines). I was surprised at how loud the planes coming into Manchester Airport were. That did wake me up a couple of times.

I have read some reviews about problems with the attitude of the wardens. Everyone we interacted with was helpful and friendly.

The facilities are good. Not outstanding (a couple of minor plumbing issues which could do with attention) but modern, warm and clean. I like a hot shower but the water is VERY hot. Parents might be concerned about the temperature.

The location is excellent. The only downside is there are no shops in the immediate vicinity. There is a bus to Frodsham from Hatchmere (about a mile walk away) and the train to Chester / Manchester is literally next door.

There is pedestrian access directly from the site into the Delamere Forest for walks and cycling. We caught the bus to Frodsham then walked back via the Sandstone Trail. Around 10 miles. There is a pleasant, well surfaced route around Blakemere Moss (a lake) which is around 3 miles door to door from the site. If you have a car, there are lots of walks available based upon the Sandstone Trail and the Delamere Way.

I thought the site had a very nice atmosphere. There were less children than I was expecting but those that were here seemed to be having a great time. Lots of families cycling together. I didn’t see a children’s play area but it isn’t really needed with the proximity of the forest. Overall, the site is quite quiet (especially at night when everyone seemed to have lights out by about 9pm).

I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to walkers and cyclists.

 We’ve stayed at this site loads of times as we visit family close by. The site is lovely and exactly what is expected of a Camping and Caravan Club site. However, this is the first time in all my Motorhome travels that I have taken a dislike to one of the wardens.

We arrived early as we had an appointment to keep and whilst we knew that we may not be able to book in we still asked politely if we could leave our Motorhome anywhere. Now in my opinion there’s ways and means of saying no but the abrupt rudeness of the chap was quite shocking. We were told in no uncertain terms that there was nowhere on site nor was there any alternative parking nearby. Having gone to our appointment in the Motorhome we returned later to book in.

The next day whilst waiting for the showers to open after they are closed for cleaning I saw the same chap wandering around the site. It was 20 minutes to the showers being opened but I know that on other sites they get opened early once they are finished. I politely asked if the showers were open yet to which I received a blunt “12. 30” grunt from him. Again it would have been nice if he had engaged in a little more.

The same chap came round with a clip board each day bang on 12. 00 to check that people had left on time. Now I’m not one for overstaying but he scared us enough to make sure we were clock watching on our day of departure.

We moved on to another camping and caravan club site the next day where we were allowed to leave our Motorhome before booking in and the showers opened early the next day.

Suggest they employ people in future who have the ability to engage with us general public in a friendly manner. It wasn’t what he said but the way he said it - he really needs to practice his “people skills”.

 Mixed feelings about this site.


Easy access by rail to Chester, Liverpool etc

Nice walks

Nearby cafes both nice


The manager was a bit stand offish and avoided eye contact on many occasions (the others were nicer)

Far too few showers for a site as busy as this and too few grey water draining areas

Reviewer: ZIZAG 29 reviews from this member

 Well what can I say that has already been said, before. As I arrived backpacking from the Sandstone trail and was well looked after given a lovely pitch for the night, at a very reasonable price

Top class site everything for a nice stay.

Staff are very friendly and attentive. The campsite

Well laid out and all facilities and amenities, Spotless clean well looked after toilets and showers, shop has basic selection of food and drinks.

Information and leaflets to peruse. Lovely walks all around the forest and visitors centre about 1k with cafe. The added bonus is the CCC is close to the Rail service to Chester and close to Sandstone trail, handy for walkers backpacking and camping.

I would highly recommend this Campsite
