Oakwood Marina: Overlooking the water

General

  • Relaxed 30-acre campsite bordering the Trent and Mersey Canal
  • A 10-minute drive from Northwich; Chester 40 minutes
  • On-site tea rooms serving breakfasts, coffees, scones and cakes

Whether you're in the mood for merrymaking, meandering through the countryside or day trips to Manchester city centre, Oakwood Marina is a relaxed waterside campsite in rural Cheshire that ticks all the right boxes. As it borders the Trent and Mersey Canal, a wonderful waterway that runs all the way from Derby to Liverpool, walking and cycling routes along the towpath can be accessed in a few seconds – an excellent way to take in the scenery of the surrounding Cheshire Plains.

The marina runs for almost a mile along the canal and hosts a constantly changing collection of up to 90 colourful narrowboats, while the campsite is similarly spacious, covering roughly 30 acres of gently sloping land with views over the water's edge. The surrounding fields are either grazed by cows or mown for hay just a couple of times a year, meaning there's lots of long grass around to shelter passing wildlife (a few footpaths have been cut between the pitches to help guide you through the fields).

Guests staying at Oakwood Marina are welcome to light campfires and barbecues (in the designated areas) and have access to useful marina facilities like a laundry room, toilet block, showers and washing-up area. There's also an on-site tea rooms, where you can stop for all-day breakfasts, coffees, scones, cakes and other goodies. To top it all off, there's a pizza trailer, plus an outdoor bar open from 4pm until late.

Oakwood Marina is just under a mile from a local organic farm shop and roughly two miles from Rudheath, where there is a railway station and a well-stocked supermarket.

    People very welcoming, accommodated our needs as we had booked incorrectly on the system. Everything on site that you need but could have done with a little shop for basics. Would stay here again.

    Disliked: 

    Showers were cold but to be fair weather was hot so was a benefit in the heat. Also a shame you can not drive on to the site area for tents.

FANTASTIC stay, ticking all our boxes08/15/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Liked: 

    Absolute gem! This campsite ticks all our boxes, with pitches of HUGE size, privacy, superb attention, very clean facilities, tap water at a distance so that children can be independent, quiet, vast green space by the canal, perfect for running and all sorts of play. Excellent quality washing area, and an Absolutely lovely addition of outdoor wooden cabin showers with hot great pressure water, fantastic on those hot August days we experienced. Also fantastic solution to leave the car at the carpark: our stuff were brought in by small moto+trailer by a very friendly and super helpful staff. This place has overcome all of our expectations, and we will be back! Pizza is delicious too, and coffee is very decent. Thanks to all the staff for the fab experience we had!

Beautiful site, but could do with some slight improvements.08/15/2022

  • Bell tent (2 adults and 2 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The campsite was beautiful, staff were friendly, food was nice and the bell tent was also nice & cute.

    Disliked: 

    Portable toilets, showers were hot and miss with warm water and cafe was only open 10am-4pm but stopped cooking food at 3:30pm. Also it was really hot weather so would have thought battery powered fans would have been provided seen as we travelled with a young child and dogs.

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

Start off with some good old-fashioned industrial heritage at the Lion Salt Works in the nearby village of Marston (10 minutes' drive), or visit the Anderton Boat Lift (15 minutes) to see how ingenious Victorian engineers negotiated a 50-foot drop between the river Weaver and the Trent and Mersey Canal.

The handsome market town of Northwich (10 minutes) and its bustling high street should be next on your agenda – especially if your stay at Oakwood Marina coincides with its monthly artisanal market. For cities where there's always something on, you could head to Chester (40 minutes) or Manchester (40 minutes), both of which have top museums, kid-friendly attractions, shopping opportunities and historic quarters to explore.

Need a breather after all that? Fresh air – and plenty of it – is available at Marbury Country Park (15 minutes), Tatton Park (20 minutes) or Dunham Massey (25 minutes), a National Trust-managed property with a deer park and garden that makes the place well worth visiting all year round.

Must see

  • Anderton Boat Lift - Lift Trips (3.8 kilometres)
  • Arley Hall & Gardens (9.7 kilometres)
  • Tatton Park Mansion (11.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Nether Alderley Mill (16.6 kilometres)
  • Hare Hill (20.2 kilometres)
