Shays Farm is set in a peaceful rural location in a valley away from the farmhouse.

The caravan camping site is privately owned family run business. The family have lived on the farm for over 100 years, previously farming the land until 2007 when starting a small campsite which has grown in size and popularity over the last 7 years.

Shays Farm caravan camping site welcomes families, couples and individuals in motorhomes, caravans, trailer tents and tents. The campsite is set in natural surroundings for guests to enjoy the picturesque woodlands and wildlife.

Shays Farm is on the outskirts of Little Budworth village and is an excellent location for nearby Oulton Park, Delamere Forest, the historical city of Chester and Beeston Castle. We are in driving distance to North Wales as well as close proximity to the motorway linking to Manchester and Liverpool.

Evolved from a muddy field with poor facilities to a top notch caravan and campsite

Brabbin, John - 12/05/2022

Peace and quiet. Superb toilets/ showers. Very well kept. Lisa and staff will do anything to help. Just book it and see for yourself. Close but not too close to Oulton Park or Manchester Airport. Several pubs nearby that do good food. Takeaway shops in Northwich. Shopping outlets within fifteen minutes. Nice but not cheap Country Farm type shop within ten minute walk. Loads of wild life. Dogs exercise and kiddies playing field and climbing frames. Limited fishing pegs on site, but several waters close by. You will be impressed and just like me, keep going back.

We spent three lovely nights at Shays farm on a electric grass pitch, site was very clean. Wardens on site extremely helpful and knowledgeable and very welcoming. Lots to do locally. 5 minute walk to a pub that does great pub food. Toilets and showers extremely clean, washing pot area very clean and fridge freeze in this area that you can use. We will be booking again

A little slice of a disappearing England

We've stayed at Shay's Farm several times and will be going again - we've already got one more visit booked and will probably go at least 4 more times this year.It's a lovely place - off the beaten track as it were; quiet, spacious, clean, plenty of room with large pitches so you aren't all cheek-by-jowl like on some sites. We like the fact there aren't any organised activities like a disco or swimming pool. This keeps the noise down and leaves entertainment up to yourself with no noisy groups of people spoiling the scene. There is a lovely walk across the fields to the nearest pub , The Shropshire Arms. A traditional Cheshire alehouse with a good cellar, although somewhat expensive compared to pubs where we live. £7.50 for a pint and half of lager and £13 for a Cheese and Onion pie is way over the top to be honest. But the walk there and back takes you through farmer's fields ( legal footpath ) and you feel like you are in the depths of the countryside, miles from anywhere, with traffic just a distant rumble. This is the picture of England so many of us have in our minds - a picture rapidly disappearing in the rush to concrete-over every square inch of this country in order to build houses for the all the people fleeing the towns and cities to get away from the ever-increasing number of immigrants who flock to the UK for an easy life on benefits. The nearby town of Winsford in so-so. Some older, traditional Cheshire features, many featuring the nice, warm, red sandstone native to Cheshire and some not-so-nice ,tacky, 1960s, concrete, East-German-style shopping locations. There is a superb chippy in Bunbury - a little village about 15 minutes south of Shay's Farm - although they aren't cheap. Neither are they particularly friendly - long after everywhere else has abandoned Covid19 rules and regulations, the rather anti-social owner and staff do not let you into the chippy until you are called inside, one person at a time to place your order with staff still wearing masks. After paying, you are told to get out and wait outside till your order is ready and you are summoned to collect it. I think the only reason this place survives is that there is nowhere else to go for your fish and chips for miles around. Fish, chips, peas and a can of pop was £11.35. Expensive compared to where we live, but par for the course for most places. The nicest walk we found was the Westgate Way.This superb walk of 6 miles is along the trackbed of the old CLC Cuddington to Winsford and Over railway line. We parked ( FOC and FOC toilets too ) at what was Westgate Station. Westgate is a village near Winsford, about 5 minutes drive from Shay's Farm. Westgate Station - closed to passengers as long ago as 1931 - is now a cafe and you can sit at benches either in the garden or on the old platforms. A huge pot of tea and two big toasted current teacakes was £7.15. Cups, saucers, plates and teapot were all china - no plastic or styrofoam here !The walk is one of the best we have ever found - the ground was firm and dry and deserted enough to let our two little dogs off the leash and let them roam a bit. Of course, we ALWAYS clean up after our doggies, not that there is much to pick up anyway. I do wish horse riders had to to the same and it made us wonder why little doggy leavings are considered anti-social, whereas horses can leave mountains of droppings and they are just left where they fall. Is it because horse-owners tend to be wealthy and therefore feel they own the place ? Whatever the reason, an Everest of horse muck with swarms of attendant flies is NOT nice on a linear trail like the Westgate Way. But the walk is lovely and the scenery beautiful and for railway fans like me, there are a few remnants of the old railway, such as Newchurch Crossing, which was a farm track across the railway and there is a short section of rails and sleepers left in situ to show what is was like decades ago. All in all, my wife and I highly recommend Shay's Farm for camping, caravans and trailer-tents ( we've used all three ). It's quiet, peaceful, clean , off the beaten track but very accessible even for caravans, with nice places to visit locally. See you there soon !
