The Happy Pheasant Caravan Park and Campsite: Early afternoon at The Happy Pheasant

General

  • Well-maintained adults-only site on a rural Cheshire farm
  • A 35-minute drive to Chester, and 15 minutes to Cholmondeley Castle
  • Access to walking trails, including Sandstone Trail

If you’re looking for a chilled-out break combined with a real taste of country life, take a look at The Happy Pheasant Caravan Park and Campsite, an adults-only site on a 37-acre arable farm in Cheshire. Rural relaxation, uninterrupted vistas over your peaceful surroundings and the sight of horses grazing in neighbouring fields are the order of the day – there’s little to disturb you here apart from birdsong…

When the weather is fine, you’ll want to make the most of the spectacular sunsets that light up the Cheshire countryside, so feel free to bring a barbecue along to provide alfresco dinners while you gaze skywards at the end of the day. If you need to source supplies, it’s a five-minute drive to the village of Malpas, where you can stock up on essentials for the grill at handy local stores.

If you go off the idea of self-catering, that’s no problem either, as you’ll come across several takeaways and top-notch hostelries in the village.

Need to work up an appetite for whatever meal you're planning? There are plenty of walks accessed directly from the site, including the Bickerton Hills and Sandstone Circular, leading to the ruins of Maiden Castle. Alternatively you may like to choose days out in Chester or checking out the area's many lovely castles and stately homes.

Back at base there are several handy facilities provided, including toilets, tourer storage facilities, chemical disposal and recycling points.

    Really nice new park and very very quiet, all that can be heard is the birds. large level fully serviced pitches. Toilets always kept clean. Possibly the largest dog walk field that we have ever seen at a campsite before. Village only 15 mins walk, 2 good pubs and a chippy. Would fully recommend this park. The owners are lovely too.

    A lovely warm welcome from Anita at The Happy Pheasant whom showed us to our pitch. Each pitch had its own electric socket, water tap and grey waste grid. There is also a pot wash on the park for your pans, plates and dishes and the chemical tipping point is conveniently located in the centre of the park. Everything on the park has been really well thought out and is all new due to the park only just opening. Another good idea that we thought was just fantastic is that the park has smart meters on each pitch which we found really easy to top up via our phone and worked out much cheaper than just the flat rate fee that we normally pay when we go to other parks. We booked an “electric optional pitch” and topped up the meter on arrival and we only used around £3.75 per day of electric when most other parks are charging between £6 -£12 per night as a flat rate for electric, so over a week or two this would be quite a saving. There are 2 huge fields to the side of the park that are just for dog walking that “Sam” our pointer loved. The 360-degree views at the top of the field are just breath taking. There are plenty of walks around the area and if you decide to venture out there are also 2 good pubs a Coop and a chip shop. The park is adult only and the rules are no music to be played outside which is a blessing so its ultra quiet, all you can hear are the birds and the occasional barn owls at night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Happy Pheasant and have booked again for June.

    Disliked: 

    That we didn't stay for longer.

    Just come back from a lovely stay at The Happy Pheasant and have to say what a lovely site to stay on, Anita was lovely and welcomed us and showed us to our pitch and showed us where everything was. The site is well laid out with lots of space to move about, plenty of dog walks and a lovely big field for dogs to run in. Perfect site to relax in as it was so quiet at night.
    Thanks for a great stay looking forward to coming back soon :)

Local attractions

Chester (35 minutes’ drive) is a hub for day trips; you can take leisurely cruises along the Dee river, or meet the animals at Chester Zoo. Add a bit of culture into the mix with Roman history at the amphitheatre, or amble the city walls. Feeling lucky? Take a trip to Chester Racecourse (both 40 minutes) and have a flutter on the horses – and if you’re not that into betting, treat yourselves to a cream tea instead.

This being Welsh border country, there are plenty of castles in the vicinity: check out imposing Cholmondeley Castle Gardens (15 minutes) or the medieval ruins at Beeston Castle (20 minutes) for spires, moats and turrets galore.

Curious to explore further over the border? Attractions include Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, the high-rise bridge across the Llangollen Canal – you can cross it on foot, by bike or in a narrow boat. National Trust-owned Chirk Castle (both 40 minutes) has gorgeous gardens and lots of art treasure to potter around, and Erddig House (35 minutes, also National Trust) has displays in old kitchens giving a glimpse “below stairs” in Victorian times.

Must see

  • Cheshire Military Museum (18.9 kilometres)
  • Chester Castle (18.9 kilometres)
  • Chester Cathedral (19.5 kilometres)

National Trust
