Netherwood House is a Caravan Park, licensed for Touring Caravans and Motor Caravans exclusively for adults. It is open from 1st March to 31st October each year.  The entrance to the site is on the A41, 2˝ miles from the centre of Chester, a mediaeval and beautiful walled City, on the River Dee.


Caravans are parked on the actual site of the historic Civil War battle of Rowton Moor when on the 24th September 1645, the Parliamentary forces, under Major General Poyntz, defeated the Royalist Army under Sir Marmaduke Lansdale.  This battle sealed the fate of Chester, and King Charles 1 retreated over the old Dee Bridge to Wales.

The site is an ideal base for touring the Cheshire Plain, Beeston Castle, Delamere Forest, Wirral, Snowdonia and the North Wales coast, and is in pleasant country, bordered on one side by the Shropshire Union Canal, which provides the opportunity for walks along the tow path to Chester, and the opportunity to fish.

A few minutes away by car is the famous Chester Zoo, which is also remarkable for its extensive gardens, and the famous Ellesmere Port Boat Museum.  The city of Chester, with its “Rows” unique in Europe, and its Roman Amphitheatre, offers many amenities, apart from its superb shopping facilities. These include River and Canal trips, Exhibitions, Museums, Theatre, Cinema, and the Northgate Arena with Leisure Pool and many sporting activities. An Information Cabin on site contains a large selection of brochures on attractions within a wide radius.

Facilities at the Site include water points, basins, and a chemical disposal point.  A toilet block with free facilities, which include hot & cold showers, electric shaving points (including continental sockets) and hair and hand dryers.  There are sixteen electric hook-ups available.  Milk, bread and other consumables, also Calor Gas and newspapers may be obtained from the BP petrol station (300 yards away) open seven days a week, 0700 – 2300hrs.  Alternatively, Sainsburys Supermarket is just over 1 mile away, nearby to which is a Park & Ride with a frequent service to the centre of Chester.

Advance booking is essential, especially at Public holidays and in July and August, when the site is nearly always full.
