Reviewer: Pasopton 5 reviews from this member

 This site is very handy due to it being part of a very good pub for good value food and atmosphere.

There is good walking out on the adjacent Sandstone trail of Cheshire across the road and within short drives to the bonny old town of Nantwich or Wrexham & Chester.

The Shower & Toilet facilities are up deep steps & around a winding path to the rear of the pub. The male side could really do with some improvements and refurbishment to the door fittings and quite small shower cubicles, (Small door hooks & no shelves for washroom bags).

Due to the very adverse weather this winter the ground surrounding the Electric pitches was very soft, with the few hard standing ones being purely strips for the caravan wheels.

A drier experience would probably have resulted in a more positive review although the toilet & shower comments are still valid.

There is no passing Bus service here to Wrexham or Chester. Although apparently there was a bus stop down the road for a service to Nantwich & Tarporley.

 Great campsite excellent food available

Clean showers and toilets.

Only issue was the lack of respect by other campers. Returning back to their tents at 1 in the morning shouting the odds. (but that can happen anywhere)

Quite a bit of road noise from lorries at 4am

 Staff were amazing made us feel so welcome, the food in the Bickerton was beautiful and so reasonably priced.

We actually took our own food and ended up eating out for every meal bar one as it was so good! Even our 3 dogs were catered for. Excellent facilities clean and well stocked.

As for location beautiful surroundings excellent for dog walkers! Lots of things to see Cheshire workshops and ice cream farm etc. We will absolutely be back.

If I had to be critical I would suggest the bins be moved to different location as very smelly and need to pass each time using facilities or going to pub! And clearly visible from camp field. But hey I'm sure somebody would moan if they were out of sight!

Good job Bickerton poacher see you soon x

 Excellent campsite with fantastic pub on site.

Site was clean and well maintained, and was very easy to check in.

Toilets and showers were very clean, was a little doubtful because of previous reviews but can honestly say they were lovely!

Amazing home cooked food in the pub, and the staff were extremely friendly, nothing is too much trouble.

Lovely little walk close by for the dog.

Great little park for kids- we didnít take our children this time, however we will definitely return with them.

Fantastic little weekend break.

 The site is small and relevantly well run staff where polite on arrival and showed us all the facilities. The pub itself is fantastic and staff where more then accommodating during our stay.

I have to say the washrooms where horrendous which really put a a bit of a dampener on the trip. They looked like they had not been cleaned all weekend and the was no toilet roll on occasions.

I found the access gate to the site a little tight and the is a whopping great big container which is poorly sited making the access a little tricky for larger caravans.

I don't think I would rush back with such a young family

 Lovely campsite with loads of flat pitches.

Beautiful surroundings and the pub is amazing! Great food and opens for breakfast, does takeaways too.

Only negative is the toilet/shower facilities.

There's only one loo and one shower! Really needs rethinking by management as it's such a nice site.

 Stay here with family as it was our brother in law 60th birthday,

Campsite brill beautiful trees on grassed areas

Lovely view

Friendly people on site

We did get told off twice for being a wee bit loud in night time but it was 11. 30 but staff was lovely about it and we did lower noise.

Had plenty drinks food in bar, bit dear but omg food out this world

Staff was so lovely polite friendly.

The only downside to campsite is one toilet and one shower in ladies, need more showers an toilets

But apart from that an awesome site bar and campsite

Will be coming back again as we loved it and plenty walks around area

Fabulous I would rate it 8/10

 First weekend away after lock down.

Pub and staff really good and friendly. Great service

Facilities ok. Nice views accross countryside.

Entrance to the site quiet tight. Wouldnt take a lot to widen the entrance.

Pitches not the best, some a bit sloopy, but overall for the money worth it.

Will go again

Reviewer: Kcolvile 1 review from this member

 Good points - tent pitch was good and access to nice walk from the site. Playground was good to have on site

Bad points - do not take good measures with Covid-19 hygiene in facilities. The cleaning sheet advising when toilet/shower were cleaned only showed once on the Friday lunchtime to Sunday when we checked out. They ask you to shut the door, I assume so it limits the people (itís a small space), however people just walk in as the lock is broken.

There is a pack of surface wipes resting on top of the mirror which didnít give me much hope on how deep they were actually cleaned. On Sunday the rubbish bin was overflowing with paper towels.

There is only one shower which has one toilet cubicle and itís where the outside seating area is for the pub. I felt awkward waiting with my daughters shower stuff whilst people were eating.

Also the site is next to a road which does have large trucks go down early on the morning. If you are used to a bit of traffic noise it wouldnít affect you.
