- A 10-minute drive to Tattenhall village and 20 minutes to Chester
- Home-laid eggs as well as lamb, pork and bacon available at the farm
Up for a serene stay in north-west England? Swoop down to Swallow Farm Campsite and check out the Cheshire countryside from this small and peaceful dog-friendly park in the tiny hamlet of Hargrave.
A stay here is certainly a scenic option – parts of the grounds have views out across to Beeston and Peckforton castles (both under a 15-minute drive away), and a little further on is Chester, which you can reach on an hourly public bus from near the park (20 minutes’ ride). The famed Chester Zoo is just north of the city (25 minutes’ drive) and the Chester Racecourse takes about the same time to reach.
For food after a flutter on the horses, Tattenhall village’s restaurants and pubs – some serving tapas, Indian and Chinese cuisine – are a 10-minute drive away; a small convenience shop is here as well and you can pick up free-range eggs from the farm’s hens.
Hungry for more? Home-reared bacon, pork and lamb are also available to purchase on the site and a pub serving meals is less than a five-minute drive away. The Ice Cream Farm is about the same distance if you’re craving dessert (surely always); when stopping here, burn off any calories consumed on walks alongside the nearby canal.
Swallow Farm Campsite is also close to hiking and cycling routes for exploring more of the local lands and has essential facilities such as two toilets and a shower as well as a dishwashing area.

Kid-friendly activities out in nature aren’t far from this site: the Crocky Trail, a mile-long adventure path including slides and rope swings, is five minutes’ drive away, and the nearby former royal Beeston Castle (10 minutes' drive) transports small visitors (and larger ones) back to the 1220s with its turreted architecture.
Set on a sandstone crag 350 feet higher than the Cheshire Plain, this spot also has plenty of winsome views for the grownups to sigh over; other scenic places in the area include Chester’s amphitheatre and Roman walls left over from the settlement's beginnings as a first-century fortress (20 minutes). The city also houses the Rows, a shopping street covered in handsome half-timbered buildings and partly covered arcades.
Just north (25 minutes) is the unmissable Chester Zoo, one of the best and biggest in Britain with animal enclosures covering an area of 125 acres. This centre is the home of all sorts of creatures, ranging from the aardvark to the zebra, with some of the most popular being the tigers, lions and jaguars.
