Welcome

General

  • Secluded site on a working smallholding in the North Wales countryside
  • 30-minute drive to Chester for the cathedral, amphitheatre and zoo
  • On-site shop with local produce; barbecues and campfires permitted

If you’re in need of a bit of proper down time, how about an off-grid, 10-acre working smallholding in the North Wales countryside?

You’re in for a scenic stay at Wild Cherry Camping, too – it’s part meadow and part woodland, and the secluded spots you’ll call home are tucked away for hideaway hols.

If you’re here for the peace and quiet, stay close to the farm and get acquainted with the resident goats, pigs and poultry. In the company of restless kids? There’s plenty of space to keep them occupied; the two-acre hay field is a handy spot for blowing off some steam. And you can take in a bit of history while you nose around the area, too – the land was originally owned by Chirk Castle as a tenanted farm, with the holding sold off in the early 1900s. Set the kids off to find evidence of stone quarrying in the wood and World War II bomb craters at the far end of the meadow.

When evening rolls round, get the campfire going and tuck into some barbecued grub (local produce can be grabbed from the on-site honesty shop, and there are small supermarkets, a butcher and a greengrocer a five-minute drive away in Chirk for more supplies).

There are composting toilets on site, as well as a flushing toilet and shower facility affectionately nicknamed ‘The Hurry Up Wagon’. The place is off-grid but a communal washing-up area has drinking water and fridges and freezers, and the helpful owners can sort you out with phone and device charging at the house.

Unique and beautiful, something really special09/27/2020

  • Coppice bell tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Gorgeous location, fantastic sustainable amenities, friendly host - just the most lovely place to come and stay. We will certainly be back! We particularly loved cooking breakfast over the open fire and the beautiful night lights in the tent. Our two girls had great fun exploring the woods and meeting all the animals. Loads of interesting local attractions, an absolute must visit for young families.

    Disliked: 

    The site is on quite a steep hill, it's bitter sweet because the location is so gorgeous and made all the more so by being on the side of a hill! The hosts have placed an extremely helpful fence alongside the camp area so we weren't worried but you do have to keep an eye on little ones toddling around.

    A friendly welcome by the owners set the tone for a great night's stay at Wild Cherry. Our own secluded pitch, awning sheltered picnic table and WC, plus logs supplied all ready to keep us warm on a chilly evening, marked our stay as the best campsite we had while walking Offa's Dyke path.

    The space, personal compost toilet & kitchen shelter for each tent pitch. Goats in next field very entertaining! Nice couple staff.

    Disliked: 

    Noise of nearby a road traffic constantly.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review and positivity comments regarding the pitch facilities. Regretfully we cannot do anything about noise from the nearby A5 which can carry depending on volume of traffic and weather conditions. We hope that the convenient location of the site and the spacious pitches are a compromise particularly for guests looking to explore the area. Please note that we are an off grid site and do not offer WiFi and encourage device detox!

Excellent facilities in a protected valley. Very friendly.08/27/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Sparrow primitive grass tent site
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Having our own awning with picnic bench and own toilet (compostable). Also the solar energy being used, and all the recycling. The shower was hot, as was the water for washing up, and it was nice to have the option of using a flushing toilet. The site is protected from the weather mainly, and we had no problems during high winds. The owners checked our guy ropes whilst we were out, and thoughtfully placed the few items we had left out back into our tent. A lovely place to stay.

    Disliked: 

    We could hear the main road quite a lot through the night.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for the helpful review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay exploring North Wales.

Sadly the main road (particularly vehicles crossing the bridge over The Dee) can sometimes be heard depending on weather conditions and traffic levels, unfortunately this is out of our control. We hope that the secluded location and minimal pitch numbers enough to offset the inconvenience of the occasional road noise.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location is beautiful, the bell tent area is quite magical especially in the evening. We loved cooking over the fire pit and the well set up kitchen area made tidying up afterwards easy. The kids enjoyed the freedom of wandering around the fields and loved meeting the animals, they were very sad to say goodbye. All in all a fantastic place.

Reviewer's country: United KingdomOlivia J.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Coppice bell tent

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful pitch with a very spacious nomadic bell tent. Lovely farm and the owners, Mel and Rob, are two of the nicest people you could hope to ever meet. They are so down to earth and helpful. They allowed my son to help them collect some eggs and even paid him with some of the eggs he collected. My son now wants to be a farmer, which is testament to the impact they had on him. The tent and facilities were great and we enjoyed it that much, we didn’t even leave the pitch other than to go to the shop for supplies and come back. We would absolutely visit this site again and if anyone is looking for a getaway, either with your own tent or to visit a site when one is already pitched then this is the place for you. Call it camping or call it glamping. We call it ‘fantastic’. Thank you Mel and Rob.

    Disliked: 

    There is absolutely nothing to dislike here.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your amazing review and your positive feedback. We've taken on your comments and purchased fire gloves for the campfire and are sourcing a grill. You are all welcome to return anytime and we are sure we can find more 'jobs' for your son!

    Great hosts. Mel and Rob are really friendly and welcoming. The right balance of making sure we were happy and then leaving us to just enjoy their space.
    The bell tent and coppice area was beautifully done. Solar lights and eco toilet. We loved the ‘prison van’ shower!!

    Fresh eggs, campfire under the stars. Beautiful countryside.

    Just what we needed. We will definitely be back!

    If you need to escape life for a while, make your way to Wild Cherry Camping. It really works!!

Local attractions

Wild Cherry may be in a secluded spot, but its border location make it a top pick for getting out in North Wales, Shropshire and Cheshire.

Stay put in Wales to conquer some of the castles nearby – Chirk Castle is a mere 10-minute drive and you’re in for pretty views from the hilltop Castell Dinas Brân ruins (15 minutes). Slightly further afield is Powis Castle and its gorgeous gardens (40 minutes), while Whittington Castle (10 minutes) is over in Shropshire.

Spend some time in Chester (half an hour) to visit the cathedral and Roman amphitheatre, with a wander of the Chester city walls for good measure. You could also stroll along the riverbank, browse the shops or make a day of it at Chester Zoo.

More kid-friendly days can be had at Park Hall Countryside Experience (10 minutes), for tractor rides, pony grooming and plenty of indoor and outdoor play areas, and there are more animals to meet at Tŷ Mawr Country Park (five minutes). Llangollen Railway (15 minutes) is the spot for steam trains and themed days.
