Swallow Farm Campsite: Who wouldn't want to wake up to this view? Two castles in the distance!

General

  • Peaceful site on a south-facing farm with scenic views of Cheshire
  • A 10-minute drive to Tattenhall village and 20 minutes to Chester
  • Home-laid eggs as well as lamb, pork and bacon available at the farm

Up for a serene stay in north-west England? Swoop down to Swallow Farm Campsite and check out the Cheshire countryside from this small and peaceful dog-friendly park in the tiny hamlet of Hargrave.

A stay here is certainly a scenic option – parts of the grounds have views out across to Beeston and Peckforton castles (both under a 15-minute drive away), and a little further on is Chester, which you can reach on an hourly public bus from near the park (20 minutes’ ride). The famed Chester Zoo is just north of the city (25 minutes’ drive) and the Chester Racecourse takes about the same time to reach.

For food after a flutter on the horses, Tattenhall village’s restaurants and pubs – some serving tapas, Indian and Chinese cuisine – are a 10-minute drive away; a small convenience shop is here as well and you can pick up free-range eggs from the farm’s hens.

Hungry for more? Home-reared bacon, pork and lamb are also available to purchase on the site and a pub serving meals is less than a five-minute drive away. The Ice Cream Farm is about the same distance if you’re craving dessert (surely always); when stopping here, burn off any calories consumed on walks alongside the nearby canal.

Swallow Farm Campsite is also close to hiking and cycling routes for exploring more of the local lands and has essential facilities such as two toilets and a shower as well as a dishwashing area.

    Friendliness, working farm, small site about 7 pitches. They were chatty and most helpful, and interested in what I was doing - walking etc.
    They preferred cars parked separately in the gated car park, which helps with the grass and I spent the day out so I could make an early start without worrying anyone.

    Everything, Tracey & Colin are a wonderful couple, so helpful and accomodating, nothing too much bother for them. The farm is picturesque and the animals are people friendly. Everyday Colin called the children (and parents) over to feed the goats, alpacas and chickens, & to help collect the eggs. The children loved playing with Pip the cheeky puppy. We loved the fact that the kids could play out of sight and be safe.

    Lovely small campsite set in a small farm, with chickens, sheep, cows and Alpacas. The site has a nice view of both Beeston and Pekerton Castles. The owners were lovely and interacted with the guests and handed ice-lollies out to the kids on a hot day, they also helped the kids feed the chickens which they all enjoyed. The site is well sheltered but well located for local attractions; Crocky Trail, Manley mere, Chester and North Wales. Would recommend visiting.

    Everything! A small but perfectly laid out site, the attention to detail is just lovely. The views are sensational too, our children had an amazing time and didn’t want to leave! Colin & Tracy are wonderful hosts, so friendly and welcoming. We all fell in love with the alpacas, it was definitely something a little different waking up to them peering over the fence in to our tent! Brilliantly located for visiting local attractions, we could easily have filled a week with things to do.

    The site was so safe and secure that the little ones were able to experience a real sense of freedom, which made for a very relaxing break for us. No cars on the camping field apart from when pitching and packing down, perfect for families with young children.

    We will definitely be returning, I highly recommend Swallow Farm for a family camping trip - thank-you Colin & Tracy for a fantastic few days, not even the weather could dampen our stay!

Local attractions

Kid-friendly activities out in nature aren’t far from this site: the Crocky Trail, a mile-long adventure path including slides and rope swings, is five minutes’ drive away, and the nearby former royal Beeston Castle (10 minutes' drive) transports small visitors (and larger ones) back to the 1220s with its turreted architecture.

Set on a sandstone crag 350 feet higher than the Cheshire Plain, this spot also has plenty of winsome views for the grownups to sigh over; other scenic places in the area include Chester’s amphitheatre and Roman walls left over from the settlement's beginnings as a first-century fortress (20 minutes). The city also houses the Rows, a shopping street covered in handsome half-timbered buildings and partly covered arcades.

Just north (25 minutes) is the unmissable Chester Zoo, one of the best and biggest in Britain with animal enclosures covering an area of 125 acres. This centre is the home of all sorts of creatures, ranging from the aardvark to the zebra, with some of the most popular being the tigers, lions and jaguars.

Must see

  • Cheshire Military Museum (9.5 kilometers)
  • Chester Castle (9.5 kilometers)
  • Chester Cathedral (9.7 kilometers)
