When you find a good campsite that you really can relax and unwind, you keep going back. We first camped at Belmont back in 2015, and have stayed a couple of times since. In July we stayed again and here is what we thought; Camping with Kids – Belmont Camping.
Camping is something we have enjoyed for many years, but this year with everything going on as a family we needed a break from the new normal. As soon as it was announced that camping was going to be allowed again, I booked a couple of camping trips knowing we all needed to recharge our batteries in a safe way.
Finding Belmont Camping and setting up.
The campsite is located just off the A559, about 3 miles off junction 10 of the M56. As you approach the junction with pole lane, you drive through two white pillars on the corner that look like a driveway (you do not drive down pole lane.) Driving along the track you go between two lakes before seeing the campsite.
Pulling up you wait at the sign to be shown to your pitch. Most of the pitches are flat, the others a slight gradient but nothing to uneven. There are some big old trees in the middle of the camping area, the kids loved playing under one near our pitch while we set up. The pitches as well spaced with a good distance between them.
The site has grass, hard standing, and semi hard-standing pitches available. There is electric hookup available on some of the pitches. Freshwater points are dotted around the campsite, and also elsan points.
Near all water points, and where the bins are located there are hand gel dispensers.
There is a small heated block which has washing-up facilities, ladies, gents, and disabled toilets and showers. At the doorway, there is another hand gel dispenser.
Although there is no onsite shop, you are only a few miles from Northwich which has a number of supermarkets. A&E Leisure is only 5 minutes down the road should you need any camping items or gas.
Camping at Belmont.
On the campsite there is lots of wildlife to see, the ponds have swans, geese, ducks and water hens. There is many birds around, we even had a baby robin come in our awning this last stay. It is calm, peaceful and quite relaxing. Over by the pond we also seen dragonflies which was a treat.
The kids loved just being able to run and play outdoors, there is plenty of space to play without being right near another camper. The big old tree served as a good place to play, hide, and run around. Walking in the fields we even found little baby oak trees growing in the fields.
Dogs must be kept on a lead in the main camping area, but there are exercising fields where they can run off the lead.
You occasionally have planes flying over but these are not that overly intrusive, in fact, the kids liked looking for the planes when they did fly over. We had about four planes fly overhead that we noticed during our whole stay.
Things close by.
There is quite a number of things to do that is not far away;
- Anderton Boat lift is about 4 miles away
- There is a neighbouring farm that has some great icecream.
- Jodrell Bank Telescope is only 14 miles away
- Lion Salt Works Museum is located in Northwich
There are also places like Dunham Massey, Tatton Park, Chester Zoo, Sealife, and Legoland Discovery that are within 30 mins drive.
If you want to get away and spend some time in a lovely friendly site, that is clean, spacious, and surrounded by wildlife Belmont Camping is a place worth looking at. We will be staying again.
