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.

Well located in Delamere Forest recreational area.

This review is for Delamere Forest

Well located in Delamere Forest recreational area. We walked to the top of Eddisbury Hill, from which it's possible to see 7 counties if the visibility is good. There is also Delamere Station next door for trains into Chester (15 mins) and also to Manchester. We enjoyed a good lunch at the Fishpool Inn, a mile or so down the road. The Cheshire Cat Ale was lovely - light & not too hoppy.

Excellent site team as mentioned before.

This review is for Delamere Forest

Excellent site team as mentioned before. Site very convenient for Chester and North Wales, though it is best to avoid Chester ring road at rush hour. We found the small children on bikes quite amusing but we think there is a need for signs reminding grown-up bikers that the speed limit applies to bikes as well. It was alarming to step outside the unit and have a full sized bike flash past on the site road. We intend to go again outside of the school holidays.

Entrance a bit awkward and we ended up going in the out...

This review is for Delamere Forest

Entrance a bit awkward and we ended up going in the out...but that was no problem as the staff were super friendly and efficient. we were offered two sites right by the dog walking area in woods and were assisted in reversing onto grassy patch...it had a slight slope which we were happy with as location was excellent. the other offered site was flat but too close to others ! the toilets were excellent, and the disabled toilet and shower was fantastic...it made a huge difference to our stay. water and waste points were close by and chemical disposal was spotless and well thought out. dish washing and laundry of high qulity. we will definately be going back. the walk around Blakemere lake was stunning. we had a meal at the pub down the road and were given 10% off as from camp site...and the food was superb and cheap. well done to staff.

We really enjoyed our weekend here.

This review is for Delamere Forest

We really enjoyed our weekend here. My young grandchildren were not concerned about the lack of a playground. We brought games and jigsaw to keep them busy in between walking and doing the Gruffalo trail in Delamere forest. This is an excellent site with very friendly and accommodating staff. It is clean and has excellent recycling facilities. It has direct access to the forest for dog walking and it is possible to catch a train to go further afield. We were disappointed with the chip van that came on a Friday evening because the chips were like oven chips, not freshly made, and the fish too. It's good that the site has a motor home service area but to empty the waste water there one would have to go through the entrance barriers again because of the one way system in operation. We would visit again to explore further walks in the area.
