    Top site for cycling

Enjoy walking, cycling, Go Ape and concerts from our forest-based site nr Chester.

Cheshire’s largest area of woodland surrounds our Delamere Forest Club campsite. Located in the west of the county near Chester, Delamere Forest covers some 950 hectares providing outdoor lovers with boundless walking and cycling opportunities on its network of paths and trails direct from the campsite. There’s a Go Ape! course too – with zip wires and Tarzan swings - for those with a head for heights.

The mixed deciduous and evergreen trees of the forest surround the campsite. These green surroundings complement the campsite’s many environmentally-friendly features. The excellent on site facilities include a parent and child shower room, laundry and washing area in addition to showers and toilets. The site shop stocks the essentials, further afield RM Wilding and The Hollies farm shops supply a wider range of produce.

In nearby Delamere, Abbeywood Gardens incorporates a two kilometre wildlife walk, while Stonyford Cottage Gardens at Northwich has a woodland walk. Enjoy a boat trip along the River Weaver at the Anderton Boat Lift also near Northwich. The campsite is also handy for Oulton Park motor racing circuit near Tarporley.

To venture further afield, you can catch a train at Delamere station a short walk from the campsite where regular services operate to Manchester and Chester.

This review is for Delamere Forest

I stayed at Delamere forest site for 3 nights with my two boys age's 8 and 10 It is a brilliant site as a base for outdoor activities, like mountain biking and the go ape centre just next door.(�17 each for an hour) but worth it. Yes there are a few minor problems like the code for the toilets is a pain especially for the smaller one's my 8 year old couldn't reach the code pad. some of the toilet seats do need replacing but don't let this put you off they are still clean. what is lacking from this site is a play area and a park as there are none, not even an area to kick a ball about, so come camping club get your hands in your pockets a build a park for the little ones. I'm sure that this would then make it a 5 star site. Over all the location makes this site so if you like walking, biking and swinging from trees then its for you, if not you can always visit Chester which is also very nice.

On arrival we were told where to pitch but told straight away we could not use our footprint...having paid �1000 for our tent I feel this would have been better advertised before booking, luckily for us it did not rain and it had been dry before! Again as pervious people have stated road noise is very loud and very bust, trains 20 yards away and in a flight path......facilities were ok, and great for walks into the Forrest but not a place for kids to have fun, no ball games, no kites no fun! Shan't be back.

This review is for Delamere Forest

We were only booked in for two nights and were grateful that it was only a short stay as this site does not live up to the high standards we have enjoyed so far. The wardens are welcoming and friendly but the site needs a lot of investment. Toilet facilities are inadequate when the site nears capacity and you might have to wait for a toilet or shower cubicle only to find that it had not been cleaned or flushed by the previous occupant. Yuck! Also some seats are stained and need changing. Service roads on the site were potholed but the wardens were filling them in with loose gravel, more permanent repairs are required. Many hard standing pitches are in need of repair as the gravel is disappearing and grass and weeds are reclaiming the pitch. Whilst our hard standing was in good repair, it was on many guests route to the toilet block and they walked across our pitch even with dogs between our car and the van. Sometimes right by our table when we were eating. The entrance gate is kept closed during the day and, not being automatic, you have to get out of your car even in torrential rain to open and then close the gate. This is crazy! Road noise can be heard even inside the caravan. I am afraid to say that this is the first site we have visited belonging to either club that we will not be returning to
