Glamping at Rake Meadows: Interior

General

  • Fab bell tents in a pretty paddock with lots of peace and privacy
  • A 15-minute walk from Cheshire Oaks designer outlet shopping village
  • Fishing pond (seasonal); barbecues and campfires permitted

For luxury bell tent getaways in chilled-out Cheshire, Glamping at Rake Meadows is a go-to. Set down a lane, this adults-only place is circled by trees and hedges – fab for settling down in a spot with a private feel.

Wander amid wildlife during your stay – rabbits and birds regularly make an appearance at the nature reserve next door to the site and fish are found in the park’s carp pond (open during angling season; bring your licence).

While it may sound like you’re in the middle of countryside here, urban amenities are in fact a cinch to seek out. The site’s just off the A5117 and is a 15-minute walk from Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet’s fancy wares at discounted prices. Drop by the aquarium, cinema, bowling alley and indoor golf adjacent to this centre too, or stroll 15 minutes to the local gym for the indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and sauna.

It’s worth setting your sights on roams around Chester and its zoo (both around 10 to 15 minutes from the site) and Liverpool (half an hour north) too. Alternatively, stay nearby by ambling down the footpath leading from the park with the pup in tow (pleasingly for pet owners, Glamping at Rake Meadows is dog-friendly).

Eateries are also a doddle to flit to on foot as plenty are dotted around the shopping and entertainment complex, including a chain pub about a five-minute wander away. If you fancy cooking for yourself, all you need to do is get a barbecue on the go or build a blaze (campfires are permitted here).

Please note that as the site is so handily placed you may hear a little traffic noise.

Local attractions

Don’t miss an outing at Chester Zoo from this park (10 minutes’ drive) – it’s one of the top places in the UK for glimpsing groups of exotic animals ranging from rhinos to red pandas. Lose yourself in the watery world of the Blue Planet Aquarium too, just a 10-minute walk away from the site.

History fans should aim for a cheery day out in Chester (15 minutes) roaming around the Roman-era sandstone walls and ancient amphitheatre, while rack-rifling aficionados will want to make a beeline for the boutiques in the old town’s dual-level arcades.

Up for wandering by water? The Shropshire Union Canal (five minutes’ drive) – or the "Shroppie", as the locals refer to it – is a brill spot to stroll along.
