Chosen Cheshire? Then also choose a cheery welcome from the good folks at Pitch and Canvas at Broad Oak Farm. Opened in 2017, this family-run site is part of a working dairy farm a mile from Tattenhall and around a 25-minute drive from the centre of Chester.
Suzanne and Drew run the place but as you wander around the grounds you may well bump into other family members, as the farm is also home to a dog, a cat, a flock of free-range chickens and a herd of over 100 milking cows. The peaceful rural spot is also something of a haven for wildlife, so pick up one of the site's wildlife-spotting fact sheets or join a bat walk… then settle down for stargazing: this is an area of low light pollution and clear skies appear on many nights.
If you don’t fancy cooking there are handmade pizzas to order, or it’s a 25-minute amble to a classic country pub with classic country fare and a range of local ales, or to a smart restaurant that serves up an ever-changing menu based on its own kitchen garden. There’s a small supermarket 15 minutes’ drive away, but for a truly fab brekkie, you’re strongly encouraged to snaffle some local eggs, bacon and sausages from the site's small shop (and reward your forward planning with an ice cream while you're there).
The site’s toilet block houses its clean, modern facilities in a snug wooden hut – sinks, showers and toilets all a very short stroll from your pitch.
Open from 01/04/2021 to 31/10/2021

If one ever needed a good reason to go out for a country walk, it’s present here in the shape of The Ice Cream Farm, the biggest ice cream-themed adventure park in the world and a half-hour walk away.
Hikers should make a beeline for the Sandstone Trail, a 34-mile route starting around a 10-minute drive from the site. You needn’t walk the entire length; pick up a booklet locally for info on shorter sections that take in views of castles, fields and hills before depositing you for a well-earned drink at a pub. If you’d prefer to explore on horseback, there’s a riding centre 10 minutes’ walk from the farm that can organise treks for all abilities.
For a spot of history, take a trip to one of the nearby castles, such as Beeston Castle (10 minutes), a medieval structure set on top of a cliff, surrounded by a 40-acre woodland park and with some far-reaching views on clear days. Gothic beauty Cholmondley Castle is a little further away at 15 minutes and has nature trails, play areas and a farm shop as well as some gorgeous gardens to wander around.
