General

  • Family-run park a mile from Oulton Park Circuit
  • Set in the countryside with views over the Cheshire plains
  • Shop on site selling locally sourced bacon, eggs and sausages

If you're off to Oulton Park Circuit to see the fast cars, you might want a speedy return to base after a long day of envy. And you'll have it at Cheshire's Elm Cottage Touring Park, which is just a mile from the circuit as well as within easy reach of other popular pulls in the area like Chester, Delamere Forest, the north Wales coast, Snowdonia, the Peak District, Liverpool, Manchester…

Elm Cottage is family owned and run, set in Cheshire countryside and surrounded by farming fields with a view across the Cheshire plains. It has an eco-friendly toilet block with free showers, constant hot water, underfloor heating, hairdryers and an easy access shower for family users or disabled guests.

There's also a big exercise area for dogs and a play area for ball games, a large selection of tourist info at reception, and a shop on site selling locally sourced bacon, eggs and sausages plus basic grocery and non-food items as well as soft drinks and locally made ice cream.

A popular pub serving good food and ales is a short distance from the site entrance and two pubs are in the local village of Little Budworth. If you fancy pizza, the Elm Cottage owners dish it up every Friday evening during the summer, freshly made in the site's new pizza oven.

    We chose this due to the dog walking area as we have 2 dogs. Hosts were great, located well for Delamere forest. Pitches a nice size and flat, and not too close together. Very clean and tidy facilities, grass freshly cut. Pub down the road but we did not go. Noise from the main road but you get used to that and blank it out. You have to get in your car for decent walks but lovely stay and not rowdy crowds whilst we were ther but we would stay again. No views from site to say.

    Disliked: 

    No local walks from the campsite for dogs.
