Here is a list of places in the Cheshire countryside where we think you might like to visit in your campervan
Delamere Forest CW8 2JD
Situated just half an hours drive from Manchester Airport, Delamere Forest provides many gentle forest roads and trails ideal for the less able or families with children. In addition, Old Pale provides a superb new destination to walk to with spectacular views extending as far as Liverpool’s famous skyline of cathedrals and harbour buildings. If you’re an outdoors person then Delamere Forest is perfect for you. If you have children with you they have their own Gruffalo trail orienteering course which has over 1.5 miles of woodland walks which leads them to a statue of the famous children’s character.
Cheshire Ice Cream farm/Beeston Castle and Woodland Park
Only 3 miles separate’s these two fabulous attractions half an hours drive from Manchester situated deep in the Cheshire countryside. The ice cream farm is perfect for keeping the little ones occupied. There is a system where you can purchase an amount of tickets and use them on certain attractions inside the farm.
There are mini sand diggers, crazy golf course, mini quads, and a 100ft sand and a water play area so even if it’s raining there’s somewhere for the adults to keep dry. There is a small farm and in the middle of the play area there is a tree that shoots foam out every 30 minutes, obviously the main attraction is the endless amounts of homemade speciality flavoured ice cream that is made on site.
At Beeston Castle why not walk round the ruins, Climb to the top of the castle and peer down into the spiralling well below. This is one of the deepest castle wells in England, steeped in legend as the hiding place of Richard II’s lost treasure. Thought to be buried here in 1399 the treasure has been missing for centuries despite many attempts to find it.
Take a walk round the woddland park here and enjoy the fresh air as you wander along the winding woodland paths surrounding the castle. You may even spot some peregrine falcons flying around the castle if you’re lucky.
No visit to Cheshire is complete until you see the ancient roman city of Chester just over an hours drive in your campervan from Manchetser airport. Chester is right on the English/Welsh border and is one of the best preserved walled cities in the world. The more unusual landmarks in the city are the city walls, the Rows and the black-and-white architecture. The walls encircle the bounds of the medieval city and constitute the most complete city walls in Britain. The full circuit measuring nearly 2 miles long. They consist of buildings with shops or dwellings on the lowest two storeys. The shops or dwellings on the ground floor are often lower than the street and are entered by steps, which sometimes lead to a crypt-like vault. Just make sure you duck when you enter as the door ways are quite low.
Chester Zoo/Blue Planet Aquarium
Whilst you’re in your hire vehicle pop in the postcode and visit either one or both of these hugely popular visitor attractions. They are both just an over an hour’s drive from Manchester Airport
Chester Zoo has been open since 1930 when the dreams of a young man came to fruition. He wanted to build a zoo without bars for the public. He purchased Oakfield House and 7 acres of land along with a few animals from a local zoo in Crewe. This was the beginning of a bright future for what is now the UK’s most popular Zoo. The site now covers over 500 acres of land including 125 acres of zoo, which house animals from all walks of life from Snakes and Meerkat’s to Elephants and Lions.
Blue Planet Aquarium is located just a few miles in your campervan from Chester Zoo this was once the largest aquarium in the UK and was opened by Queen Elizabeth in 1998. It is home to Europe’s largest shark tank which if you like you can pay to dive with the sharks (this is a pre bookable activity). There are lots of activities and feeding sessions on during the day.
