Oakwood Farm Touring Park

General

  • Spacious family site under 10 minutes' drive from Chester
  • 15 minutes' drive from Cheshire Oaks and Chester Zoo
  • Campfires and barbecues allowed on pitches

Take a swift exit from the end of the M56 and pitch up within minutes: how’s that for easy access? And with the M53 and A55 nearby as well, Oakwood Farm Touring Park is spectacularly well located for travel from Liverpool, Manchester and north Wales.

A few miles from the fably handsome city of Chester, this site has loads of things to do nearby: a 15-minute drive will bring you to the zoo, the racecourse or a designer shopping spree. Head north a little and on a warm day (or less warm if you’re feeling brave) you can be dipping your toes in the sea at the beaches on the Wirral, half an hour’s drive away.

However you choose to spend your day you’ll no doubt welcome a restorative night’s sleep, and the quiet pitches at Oakwood Farm should aid restful slumber. There’s plenty of space around the fields, so let the kids and dogs run around till they’ve tired themselves out, then gather round the campfire until it’s time to crash out.

You’re welcome to light a barbecue to cook your dinner; a supermarket 10 minutes away if you need to stock up on sausages. If you’d like to go out, a couple of pubs are a mile or so away and a wide range of eats are available in central Chester.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The potholes on the short road leading in are I'm afraid a casualty of the winter weather and the heavy rain we have had, however plans are in hand to eradicate these.

    Nice tidy basic touring site close to Chester. Our hardstanding pitch had electric and water connections laid on and was spacious and level. Free Wifi was excellent
    Clean and modern toilet and shower building which was well heated.
    Good washing up facilities, plenty of waste bins for rubbish, Chemical toilet emptying point.
    Owner was helpful, friendly and welcoming.
    There is a cafe on site as well.
    This site is situated next to a very busy main road and traffic noise is present day and night. Not a problem for us, but if you are sensitive to traffic noise this is probably not the site for you.
    Will definitely return and can reccomend.

From the manager...

Hi Julian,
thank you for calling in to the office on your departure it was nice speaking to you and I hope you had a pleasant onward journey. Thank you for leaving a review we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
The short road to the park has suffered this winter, mainly due we think to the very wet weather we had at the beginning and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, we have planned in the next few weeks for this piece of road to be Tarmacked to follow on from the already Tarmacked surface from the main gate through Oakwood Farm.
We will look forward to seeing you again.
Kind Regards
Caroline.

Hi Andrea,
thank you for your review.

During your weekend stay we did have an electrical fault with the lighting posts around the edge of the Touring Park and an electrician arrived as soon as we realised to evaluate the problem and to make arrangements for the fault to be rectified on the Monday. We can only apologise for these unforeseen circumstances and we hope it didn't detract any enjoyment from your stay.

    The pitch was level and access to electric and water was easy.

    Disliked: 

    No one was there to greet us, or check us out. We saw no one at all, I got a text to tell me to go to pitch 18 and that was the only correspondence. There was only one shower per gender and they weren't very clean at all. I showered in the evening and my partner the following morning, it didn't look like anyone had been round to check/clean them.

From the manager...

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay and I hope you had a good onward journey.

I would point out however, that our office is not open 24/7 out of season. You booked via Pitch-up last minute as we had availability. As I was notified on my phone about your booking I immediately sent you Pitch Details to facilitate your stay.

You left early the next morning prior to the office opening at 9 am.

The showers are cleaned on a daily basis and kept an eye on periodically (PLEASE SEE ALL OTHER REVIEWS RE - CLEANLINESS) during the day to see if there is anything untoward which needs to be addressed.

Hence if you showered in the evening after arrival and then first thing prior to office being open then this relies upon the previous user leaving it in the condition they would expect to find it.

Kind Regards

Peter

    Handy for Chester bus stop almost opposite.

    Disliked: 

    Site was busy, only 1 shower for male 1 shower for females.
    Washing up area, other people didn’t clean food waste out of the sinks.
    Road noise from motorway.
    Didn’t have a visit from the owners to check all was ok.

From the manager...

Dear Visitor,

I am sorry that you were not happy with your stay overall.

We do have one shower per male and one per female currently. However, we are now in the process of building a further 4 unisex ones adjacent to the current showers, as we hadn't anticipated how busy we would be due to our location and we had to go back to planning to allow for this.

Our washing up facilities are cleaned on a daily basis and monitored throughout the day, but as you say this does rely upon each person cleaning up "slightly" after themselves to make the experience pleasant for all and I can only apologise if you were washing up after someone who had been inconsiderate before you.

I am unable to do anything about any road noise but that being said we are ideally situated for many local attractions within Chester, The Wirral and North Wales, such as Chester Zoo, Chester City including its attractions and the Racecourse and Cheshrie Oaks shopping outlet.

We like people to relax and enjoy there break so we don't visit each individual guest to check on them. The office is open 7 days per week and as we are all adults I would hope that if anyone had an issue then they would in fact come into the site office to mention it.

I hope you had a good onward journey and wish you well

Kind Regards

Peter

Local attractions

Oakwood Farm's location puts it within easy reach not only of major cities but also lots of family-friendly attractions.

A perennial favourite is Chester Zoo, 10 minutes' drive away – the 125-acre park is home to more than 15,000 animals, many of them exotic and endangered species, so there's plenty to keep you entertained for a full day. For animal life of the marine variety, head to the Blue Planet Aquarium, four miles away, where you can walk through a tunnel of sharks or sign up to don a wetsuit and get in the tank (advance booking required).

Walking around the city of Chester, four miles away, makes a most agreeable day out too: stroll on the city's ancient walls, visit the cathedral's falconry exhibit, take a boat trip on the River Dee and admire the famed black and white buildings in Chester Rows.

Half an hour's drive and you're on the Wirral and its beaches: go for Red Rocks beach for birdwatching or head to the North Wirral Coastal Park to climb among the sand dunes. Also on the Wirral is Port Sunlight, a village built for local factory workers in the late 19th century: there's lots to see here including a park, museum, art gallery and heritage tours.

Must see

  • Chester Zoo (5.4 kilometres)
  • Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet (5.5 kilometres)
