Lakeside glamping on the edge of Delemere Forest and a 10-minute train ride from Chester

First thing’s first. There’s no one called Lloyd at Lloyds Meadow. This secluded lakeside getaway, eight miles east of Chester, is run by amiable host Sarah Stone and her family, complete with a pair of friendly dogs. There’s also far more than meadows here, with lakes, rushes, alder trees and fern-clad slopes that create little enclaves. It’s more of a ‘Lloyd’s beautiful natural wilderness’ than a meadow. Whoever Lloyd happens to be.

The glamping area itself has a wonderfully quiet and private feel. Children and pets are not permitted, guaranteeing some peace and quiet, and the five-metre bell tents are each kitted out for couples, meaning there’s ample room inside. Real beds and high quality duvets show the place is designed with comfort in mind, while small details abound – a copy of The Birdwatcher’s Pocket Guide helps you make the most of the waterside wildlife, for instance, and solar lanterns have been hung in the trees to create an enchanting evening ambience.

Outside, the lake, draped in a beautiful quilt of mist in the early morning, is one of four on the nine-acre site. Lloyds Meadow is also a coarse fishery, stocked with roach, rudd, bream and more, and Sarah can help rent you fishing tackle and arrange a license if you’re interested. It’s also a short stroll to the plush washroom facilities – exclusively for the use of glampers rather than fishermen – newly installed in 2019.

Beyond the boundaries of your glamping glade, the site offers an ideal blend of town and country. It’s a five-minute walk up the lane to Mouldsworth Railway Station, with hourly trains into Chester city centre, while, in the opposite direction, Delemere Forest is just a mile away. Covering almost 2,500 acres, Delmere is the largest stretch of woodland in the country, traced with footpaths and car-free cycleways and with a nearby Go Ape! centre where you can clip into zip lines and enjoy the canopy above. If you haven’t brought your own, you can hire bikes locally from Tracs outside the Linmere Lodge Visitor Centre (one mile from the glampsite).

Chester meanwhile, offers endless historic curiosities, from the magnificent cathedral and old cathedral court, to the town hall, the city walls (a two-mile circumference walk) and the famous clock above the east gate. The streets have a real olde world charm too. Modern day shops contrast with the ancient Jacobean-style buildings in which they reside; a branch of Zara beneath low beams or the Fat Face store with a striped, three-storey timber front. There’s a Lloyds bank as well. And the Lloyds of Chester Hotel. Different Lloyds we can only assume. It's a name that's done the rounds.

Nearby

Lloyd's Meadow Glamping has a quiet and beautiful countryside location of its own – walk to Delamere Forest, get high in the trees at Go Ape Delamere (10-minute drive; 01603 895500) or park at Linmere Lodge Visitor Centre (10-minute drive) and walk the circular route around Blakemere Moss or to the view point at the top of Old Pale Hill. But the glamping site is also a 5-minute stroll from Mouldsworth Railway Station, from where its less than a fiver (and less than 15 minutes) to the walled city of Chester. Visit the city's famous Romanesque cathedral (01244 324756) or walk all the way around the walls, stopping on top of the East Gate for a photo beneath the famous clock. The whole town has a wonderfully ye olde quality, with modern shops – Zara, Waterstones, Debenhams and the like – housed inside original Tudor buildings, many across two stories with outer walkways around the second tier. Buskers are usually found around the cross and there is a tourist information centre (01244 405340) opposite the cathedral. If you're around at the right time of year you can also watch the races or polo at Chester Racecourse (01244 304600). Finally, it's a 20-minute drive to renowned Chester Zoo (01244 380280), respected as the most advanced zoo in the UK and with a fantastic array of animals and habitats. It's one of the most popular attractions in the whole of England and has enough (in fact, too much) to fill an entire day.

Food & Drink

It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to the nearest pub, a former 19th-century coaching inn with plenty of character. The Goshawk (01928 740900) serves food from midday–9pm and the outdoor area has recently been renovated. Sarah recommends the fish and chips. A short drive away, the Morris Dancer (01829 701680) in Kelsall is great for relaxing drinks and delicious food too. If you're in Chester for the day, Watergates (01244 320515) is a very atmospheric pub down in an old crypt, though the food is standard Greene King pub fare, while The Botanist (01244 408100), down a narrow alley does good sharing plates, very fancy cocktails and is generally a pretty hip place to hang out. Ristorante Sergio (01244 314663), just next to the cathedral, is also good for affordable Italian-made pizzas. For a quick coffee or a light bite, try The Jaunty Goat (01244 421492).

Opening Times

Easter–end of September.

The Owner Says

We are situated in an ideal spot to explore Chester and the surrounding area, set in 10 spacious acres with 4 lakes. The setting is so peaceful and beautiful. We aim to give our glampers a really luxurious experience: all our Deluxe 5 meter Bell tents have built-in ground sheets and are carpeted with recycled cotton Chindi rugs ethically sourced from India.

We love a good night's sleep so provide superior, award-winning mattresses and high quality 12 tog feather & down duvets for extra snuggly nights. Off-grid fairy lights and solar lamps help to create an ambient, relaxing atmosphere during the evening, but please remember to bring a torch for late night visits to the bathroom.

Just a short walk from your Bell Tent will be brand new for 2019 toilets and a hot shower. Alternatively you can use the toilets by the lake which may be closer to your bell tent.

Absolutely idyllic

Just arrived home after a four night stay and I'm missing being in Lloyds Meadow already. This was our first experience of glamping, and we loved it. The place is stunningly beautiful, the tent was extremely comfortable, and Sarah and Danny were amazing - so friendly and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble for them. We had pre-booked a camping pack, a breakfast pack and a bbq pack. Everything we needed was included and the food was high quality. The local pub is a five minute walk away and we had two lovely meals there. The train station was a five minute walk away too and we used it to go into Chester for a day. Everywhere else was a very easy drive away, including Chester Zoo, forest walks, a Chinese restaurant and some nice cafes for snacks and lunch etc. The standards of cleanliness were exceptionally high and I felt extremely safe. I genuinely cannot recommend this place enough. Even though we had quite a bit of stormy weather whilst there, it did not spoil our holiday at all and I would love to return one day.

Totally Relaxing

We had an amazing 2 nights here, and as we arrived at the gate we were really taken back as straight away it said peaceful, quiet and unobtrusive. Danny and Sarah were brilliant hosts and could not do enough for us, they even lent us their own parasol as the sun was beating down on us the first day we arrived. We ordered the gold package which was totally worth it for a romantic break. The toilets and showers were cleaned regularly and great detail had been put in place for Covid-19 measures. I can highly recommend this place for a get-away-from-it-all break and certainly looking forward to a return visit next year.

Wonderful First Experience Glamping!

This was our first time staying in a yurt, and we had a great time! The site is spacious, quiet, and very pretty, with lovely ponds and plenty of wildlife. The yurt itself was very roomy, and the bed was really comfortable. We were very well served indeed by the hosts, who made sure we had everything we needed and talked us through the extensive measures they had put in place to ensure our safety and comfort during the Covid-19 pandemic. Overall, this was a fantastic experience and one we'd love to repeat in the future!

Idyllic & stunning venue with fabulous hosts.

What an absolutely beautiful & idyllic Glamping spot! We have just spent a couple of nights in a magical bell tent with an amazingly comfy bed. ☺️ The surroundings are perfect. We had a goal to spot the kingfishers & we did! 😀 Heard plenty of owls & loved all the wildlife. Sarah & Danny are really lovely and nothing is too much trouble. We thoroughly recommend Lloyds Meadow Glamping and will definitely be visiting again! Thank you Sarah & Danny for a memorable experience! 😊😊😊😊
