Kings Acre Glamping: Little Owl bell tent

General

  • Peaceful family-run smallholding
  • A 10-minute drive from Chester and within 40 of north Wales beaches
  • Barbecues allowed; firepits and professional pizza oven to hire

You shouldn't be too surprised to hear that there's handsome countryside surrounding the quiet rural site of Kings Acre Glamping. And how spacious it is too: the green lands around the site run to 20 acres.

You can venture regally around two kingdoms from here, as Kings Acre is deep in Cheshire countryside for English days aplenty, and within 40 minutes' drive of both splendid Snowdonia and the beaches of the north Wales coast. The ancient city of Chester is a three and a half miles away for shopping and sightseeing, or you could stick to non-urban days and make your way north to the beaches, comely villages and famed golf courses of the Wirral peninsula.

Kings Acre is a peaceful and spacious park on a family-run smallholding, serenely set down a private lane in the village of Saughall. It's in a walkers' paradise with plenty of nearby footpaths – or you might prefer to seek out the site's small lake and see if the little bar is open…?

Amenities include a separate shared toilet and shower block; the site also allows barbecues and has firepits for hire (with wood available to buy) to keep evenings nice and toasty. Something a bit more ambitious? There's also a professional pizza oven to hire.

    Such a warm and friendly welcome and a beautifully serene location, Kings Acre bettered all the expectations we had. Such a wonderful time was had and we were made to feel more than welcome.

    Great washroom/showers/bathroom and kitchen facilities on site and the standard of cleanliness was second to none. Even thought we were essentially campers, its nice to have some luxuries.

    Would absolutely recommend Kings Acre to anyone and we will be most certainly heading back there in the very near future.

    Thanks so much for your hospitality Lyndon, Jessica and Astrid!!! See you all soon.xx

Local attractions

Take your pick from England or Wales, River Dee or Snowdonia fishing, and beaches and seaside villages on both sides of the border. Golfers should most cetsinly bring along their clubs too, as the nearby Wirral peninsula is home to Hoylake Municipal Golf Club, the venue for The Open in 2014.

The famed and fab Roman city of Chester is within 20 minutes' drive, for shops, bars and restaurants if your tastes tend towards the more modern, and the city walls (the most complete in Britain), cathedral, Chester Castle and Grosvenor Museum for more anciently-themed pursuits. Meets and events are at Chester Racecourse, also within 10 minutes, and family days can/should be had at Chester Zoo, the UK's most visited with over 21,000 critters to see.

Heading north to the Wirral, clamber up the sand dunes at the North Wirral Coastal Park 25 minutes' drive away, ot have a spot of birdwatching at Red Rocks beach (40 minutes), followed by the spectacularly scenic walk from Red Rocks to West Kirby. Another top Wirral attraction is the village of Port Sunlight, built for local workers in the 19th century: potter around the arts and crafts cottages, museum and art gallery, or take a heritage tour.
