Floral entrance

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 or bus ride 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. An 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.

    Lovely welcome from Colin and Tracey upon arrival.
    Your own plot which has generous space for tent and seating area for every tent.
    Nice clean simple toilet and shower room with simple rules for Covid, very clean and checked regularly.
    field is peaceful(until our kids arrived). 🤣🤣.
    Not on the main road so very little traffic noise.
    Actually liked the no vehicles on site rule once set up as it made for a safe environment for the kids.
    Dog friendly and area for dogs to be walked and they even mowed a cycle track in this area for our kids to ride around on there bikes.
    Colin and Tracey couldn't help enough and we would recommend it.

    Though we will visit other sites as we get more adventurous the wife has confirmed we will be back as not been this relaxed in a long time, I need to note great place for first time campers and seasoned explorers.

    Tracy and Colin were really friendly and helpful when our van had a fuel leak and would have gone above and beyond to help us out if necessary. The shower block is lovely and clean, having the animals on site was lovely and there was no smell or anything that made you notice they were there. Our kids loved feeding the goats and chickens. In fact they really loved the chickens. This is a small campsite but that made it even nicer. Absolutely great and would go back again very happily

    Our favourite campsite so far, very friendly and welcoming owners. Everything is lovely and clean. It’s a lovely quiet campsite with great views and it’s nice that children get to see the goats and sheep and feed the chickens. Our son Charlie loved Rosie the goat.

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) 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-timber 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 (5.9 miles)
  • Chester Castle (6.0 miles)
  • Chester Cathedral (6.1 miles)
