    Really friendly staff, the tent pitches were really spacious and the whole site was really clean and tidy. We were all impressed with how clean the toilet block is and although there is only a curtain over the shower access there were chairs and hooks to place clothes on.
    Ste owner was really helpful and lent us a load of tent pegs after we forgot ours.

    Great facilities, the site itself is really well maintained and handy having the cafe on site too. Good if you like to fish! Friendly and welcoming staff

    Disliked: 

    The road noise, it really isn’t a peaceful site unfortunately, it’s particularly noticeable at night. This is the only thing that would put us off returning. It’s also fairly expensive for a pitch

    Very friendly staff. Great facilities. Toilet block kept clean with lovely, hot showers. On-site cafe serving cooked breakfast always welcome on a rainy morning! Location v convenient for getting into Chester and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

    Disliked: 

    Only downside was being next to a main road - the pods and cabins back on to this road so the noise of the traffic takes a bit of getting used to and kept us awake the first night.

    Clean toilets and shower block

    Disliked: 

    We was not informed that the only gates to the site would be locked at 8pm and the staff go home therefore we was unable to leave to get food or we wouldn’t have been able to go home if there was an emergency

From the manager...

The gate policy is in the booking conditions & there for a reason,for safety of the children on site and also our reindeer
Everybody is told and shown on arrival that after 8pm cars can be left by the main gate which is covered by cctv also of a stile on site giving 24 hour entry on foot.
There ARE staff here 24 hours a day and after closing are in the big caravan at the entry to the site.
Our booking conditions are there for everyone to read prior to booking if you feel that anything else was not covered during your stay then don’t hesitate to contact us.
Kind Regards,Big Foot Glamping.

Excellent clamping with great facilities. 01/06/2018

    Stayed in a very spacious pod for 4, we had beds, storage, a kettle, sockets and even an armchair! Outside we had our own table, bbq and chiminea. Owners provide wood and charcoal. Kids loved the space to play and wandering around the site and going to see the reindeer. Toilets and showers clean. We had a great couple of days.

    Disliked: 

    There is traffic noise, take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. We all slept very well though.

Not very good value for money 31/05/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Barry J. Confirmed

  • Electric optional gravel touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very handy for local attractions Liverpool, Chester, Chester Zoo.
    The on-site staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Adjacent to a very busy road. The traffic noise, even in the early hours, made sleeping difficult.
    The toilet and shower facilities was inadequate for the number on the site.
    Had a cold shower 3 out of the 4 days.
    The waste disposal facility (elsan point) was not up to standard. Having to lift a manhole outside of the toilet block in full view of everybody and with no tap/ washout facility was unacceptable.
    Very poor signage for the site. Had two runs up and down a very busy carriageway before finding the site.
