If your other half keeps carping on about needing a break, bring them to wrestle some monster carp from the depths of Chester Lakes instead. With seven teeming fishing lakes languishing amidst acres of lush fields in the gorgeous Cheshire countryside, it’s the kind of place that anglers’ breams are made of. Better still, the site is only minutes from the bustling charms of Chester for anyone in your party who is less keen on waggling a pole, or you could just get back to nature and watch the world and wildlife go by from beside your pitch...
There are spacious and well spread out camping pitches right on the water’s edge for romantic types or anglers who want to get the day’s first bite, with child-friendly pitches well away from the water’s edge, and plenty of electric pitches with even more space elsewhere on the site. The amenities are plentiful too, with ten showers, fourteen loos and wash down facilities.
Elsewhere on site, there’s a top-notch tackle shop on site, plus expert fishing tuition from Dave the fisheries manager and rod hire if required. The fishy residents are partial to a bit of luncheon meat, apparently - but if you’re feeling peckish, there’s no need to resort to eating your bait: the Chester Lakes café serves up a fortifying full English and lots of other tasty treats, and there’s even a sweet shop for the kids.
Rallies and large groups are welcome, and additional activities such as horse riding, paintballing and quad biking can be arranged.
Carpe diem, we say - what are you waiting for?

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A55 North Wales, leave for Wrexham A483. At the start of the A483 go all the way around the roundabout and return towards Chester, taking the first exit for Dodleston/Kinnerton.
Go over the next roundabout following the brown Chester Lakes signs over the level crossing and take the next left and then left again.
If you can tear yourself away from your rural idyll, you’ll find the cracking city of Chester a mere two miles away. Jump on an open-top bus tour or join a guided walk to explore the historic centre, cruise the River Dee, or simply meander around the ancient city walls, stopping off as the mood takes you. There are museums covering Chester’s Roman and military history, a castle and a majestic cathedral, and the cobbled streets are packed with great restaurants and boutique shops (if you’re a determined shopper, the fantastic Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet is just outside the centre, too). Fancy a flutter? You can enjoy a day at Chester’s historic racecourse between May and September, also only a couple of miles away.
Don’t miss the outstanding Chester Zoo just seven miles away: you’ll need the best part of a day to see all the animals (there are 8000 of them!) and ride the monorail and waterbus. Other potential days out include Tatton Park, for a tour of the elegant mansion and gardens, rare breeds farm, deer park and speciality shops; the Blue Planet Aquarium; Gulliver’s World theme park; or Cheshire Farm Ice Cream, where your little ones can watch the cows being milked, have a ball in the outdoor and indoor play areas, and get stuck into one of the umpteen flavours of delicious homemade ice cream and sorbet (make mine a Raspberry Pavlova).
It’s also a really easy drive from Chester Lakes to the emerald landscapes of North Wales, or if you want to take it very easy, the Red Lion pub is half a mile from the site.
