Field

General

  • Spacious paddock with plenty of peace and privacy
  • Cheshire Oaks designer outlet shopping village within a 15-minute walk
  • A 15-minute drive from Chester; carp pond for fishing

Wind down wherever you wish at Rake Meadows – this site is on a one-acre paddock with a pick-your-own-pitch setup and tons of space to choose from.

Set down a country lane in Cheshire next to a field full of horses and surrounded by tall hedges and trees, it feels pretty private and is next to a wildlife reserve with lots of birds and rabbits about. Anglers will be chuffed to know there’s access to a fishing pond for reeling in a couple of carp (you'll need to bring along a licence for this, and it's only available in fishing season).

So far so rural, right? Well, sort of. The site’s actually just a 15-minute walk from Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet with its huge selection of high-end goods at reduced prices. There’s also an aquarium, cinema, bowling alley and indoor golf next to the complex and plenty of places to source eats (including at a chain inn a five-minute walk away).

Eat here or stoke up the barbecue on base, then burn off any indulgences at a local gym with indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and a sauna (15 minutes away on foot). There’s also direct access to a footpath for dog walks – and yep, you’re most welcome to bring the pup along to this pet-friendly park.

As for activities and attractions to jump in the car for, Chester is 15 minutes’ drive south (with its famed zoo a little closer by) and Liverpool is half an hour north. They’re both a breeze to get to as the site is easily located just off the A5117 (but please note that the trade-off for such a handy location is the presence of some road noise).

Please note

Guests under the age of 15 are not allowed on site.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

This site has no on-site toilet and shower facilities.

Units longer than 16 metres are not allowed.

A cable measuring at least 5 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

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

Please note that the fishing lake is currently unavailable due to flooding; it should reopen in 2021.

    Excellent hardstanding with electric and water. Off beaten track but close to cheshire oaks for shopping. Easy to find even in the dark.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of toilet disposal a downside. But knew that before we booked so wasn't a big issue. Hardstanding a bit uneven in places but once we found right spot was perfect.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your lovely review, hope to see you again soon 🙏🤞

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive review, I’m so glad you’ll visit us again and I welcome these useful reviews. I have ordered slightly larger sign. A4 signage is all that is permitted in this area without planning approval unfortunately. My pdf site information sheet sent at the time of booking includes directions and photographs of the site entrance. So I’m pleased you’ve commented as it’s given me the opportunity to add this into the text for future guests. Once again, thanks for taking the time to review and hopefully see you again 🙂

    nice little site walking distance form Cheshire oaks. quite site with pick your pitch allowing to camp out of the way of other guests. toilet was clean. great communication from the owner.

    Disliked: 

    very basic site for the Price, would expect more then just 1 portaloo and a water tap for that price. Field was very Uneven so difficult to find flat pitch.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am glad you enjoyed the location and the opportunity to select your own pitch. I am sorry you do not feel you had good value for money, however, could I point out, prices are based on two people per tent which I believe is typical of most sites as I don't think anywhere gives a single person discount? Next year I will have a shower on hire during the peak season so hopefully that may tempt you back!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Check out Chester (15 minutes’ drive from the park), a city founded by the Romans in the 1st century AD and still with the red sandstone walls to prove it. Roam around the Rows in the old town too on the lookout for trinkets in the dual-level arcades before recharging with a sit down at the Roman amphitheatre slightly out of the centre.

Chester Zoo (10 minutes) is a little closer to the park than the city itself, so head here enroute to see the rhinos, big cats and red pandas. No car is necessary for visiting the underwater creatures at the Blue Planet Aquarium, however, as it's a 10-minute walk away.

To spend time outdoors, shuffle along the Shropshire Union Canal (five minutes’ drive); the "Shroppie", as the locals call it, branches off into the Llangollen and Montgomery canals over in north Wales (grand if you fancy a longer wander).

Must see

  • Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet (0.6 kilometers)
  • National Waterways Museum (3.6 kilometers)
  • Chester Zoo (3.7 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Speke Hall, Garden and Estate (8.7 kilometers)
  • Mr Hardman's Photographic Studio (16.8 kilometers)
