Larkhill Cottage Camping and Caravan Site is a scenic site looking out over some of the most stunning scenery in Cheshire, and is five minutes' walk from the Sandstone Trail. It has views towards Clwyd, Shropshire, the Wirral, Merseyside and Peak District. The site is also conveniently located under an hour's drive from the Welsh coast and only five minutes from shops and restaurants.

Guests can sit on a bench in the sheltered stable yard and meet Neville the cockerel and the fellow hens, pet fluffy and friendly yard cat Rio, snip aromatic herbs from the border for dinner or buy free-range eggs from the site owners.

The site has plenty of space for family games and dogs are also welcome (please be responsible and keep dogs who may chase livestock on a lead).

The site is eight minutes' drive from the historic small market town of Malpas, where there's a general store, and two minutes from a chip shop and a good Indian restaurant. Whitchurch is 10 minutes' drive away, with a choice of supermarkets as well as a regular farmers' market.

The site's facilities include a toilet with wash basin (with hot and cold water), and a kitchen with dishwashing sink, freezer, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and washing machine.

The grass pitch was well kept with plenty off space. …08/16/2019

    The grass pitch was well kept with plenty off space. The lady that owns it came and said hello and told us of the problem with the septic tank and where to get ride of waste. In a remote location.

    Disliked: 

    The noise after 11pm of other campers.The people next to us were still shouting and talking loudly until 2.30am the next morning, This spoiled our stay at the camp site. On most campsites after 10.30pm noise is restricted. I think this could be looked into. I know people go on holiday to enjoy themselves, but at the same time they should consider others as well.

From the manager...

I am so sorry that other campers kept you awake I would certainly have come over and asked them to be more considerate had I been aware. Regarding the waste tank, because some campers had been putting nappies etc in the tank it suddenly became full and as a temporary measure I asked campers to use my tack room toilet which is conveniently sited on the yard very close to the archway as you enter the site only a few meters further on from the waste tank.

    Toilets and showers were amazing! So powerful so clean! Loved those!!

    Disliked: 

    Can’t say we disliked anything to be honest if I was being picky then the pods are far too hot to stay in in the extra warm weather we have had and I guess it would have been slightly more private if it was up a corner somewhere but that’s being super picky!!
