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.

Perfect place for a romantic WE
We had an amazing weekend! The location is fabulous with the ponds and the tents are very nice and comfortable. The cleanliness is also impeccable. Sarah and Danny were super welcoming and warm. We had the extra fire, breakfast and we also ordered a pizza and everything was perfect. We are already looking forward to planning a weekend there to enjoy the place again and to see the owners Sarah and Danny. Thanks again to both of you.

My other half and I absolutely loved our weekend away at Lloyds Meadow. From the moment we arrived we didn't want for anything, and were so well looked after by Sarah and Danny, who were so friendly and kind. The facilities were excellent and very clean, and the pygmy goats Cookie and Crumble just sealed the deal on a perfect break! Beautiful scenery all around, loads of wildlife and a lovely pub a stones throw away. Thank you so much for having us - already looking forward to our next stay!

The campsite was great, and the bed and tent were very cosy and warm- would definitely recommend the extra fire package as you get a tonne of wood to burn long into the night. The nearby train station means the site is in a great location to go on a day out in Chester, and it's only a short trip to the Delamere forest as well. On top of all that, you can pet two really sweet goats and the hosts are really friendly and accessible. Was a great stay and weekend and would thoroughly recommend.

As novice glampers we were made feel very welcome by Sarah and Danny, nothing was too much trouble. We got the train there and it was very easy to get to, with a great pub in walking distance. I would definitely recommend paying extra to use the cooking pack especially to help you travel lighter. Everything was so clean and well organised lovely touches with complimentary eye mask and ear plugs. It is a gorgeous site and lovely to share the space with the lucky rabbits and ducks that inhabit the site. Cookie and Crumble also stole our hearts and we left so relaxed would definitely recommend.

From the host
Lloyds Meadow Glamping is 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 block with toilets and a hot shower. Alternatively you can use the toilets by the lake which may be closer to your bell tent. Lloyds Meadow is a couples retreat. As an adult only site we preserve the tranquility of our lakes and countryside location. Expect to see Buzzards soaring high above you, hear the call of many birds including the Herons, Kingfishers , Swallows, House Martins and all the usual suspects including some very cheeky Robins. If you like exploring there is so much to do locally you can stay for a week and not run out of things to do, whether you want to kick back relax and enjoy nature or be more active.
Nearby attractions
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 and 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).
