Located on Winsford Flash, Lakeside Caravan Park is operated by Thornleigh Leisure Parks with parking, a pub and launderette on site.
My 2 bedroom van enjoys a sunny front of lake pitch with a gated deck and side patio area. It has an en suite toilet to the master bedroom which has a king size bed and the second bedroom has twin beds, and there is a pull out sofa bed in lounge so that it can accommodate 6 persons.
The main bathroom has a shower unit. There is central heating, additional electric fire in lounge and portable oil filled radiator. The kitchen has a kettle, toaster, microwave and gas oven and all crockery, pots and pans for 6 guests.
For your entertainment there is TV & DVD player in lounge and master bedroom with plenty of films for all ages, books and games. Free WI-FI is available on site although can be slow so don't rely on it for work use.
Simply relax on the deck area or bring your own fishing equipment to fish right in front of van. We have two very stable Riber Kayaks with a selection of adult and child wetsuits/bouyancy aids and shoes - if you would like to use just let me know in advance as I will take a security deposit of £100 and ensure you know how to use safely.
Winsford flash is home to Winsford Sailing Club and you can enjoy watching dinghy sailing on the lake wednesday and friday evenings and sundays.
At no time can you swim in the flash. You can kayak around the flash or go up the River Weaver behind the spit which meanders through countryside to middle flash and top flash, and get up close to ducks, swans, geese, herons and kingfishers.
The site itself is walking distance to Winsford town centre with 24hr Asda, pubs and leisure centre with swimming pool. Further afield there is an open air pool at Nantwich and cinema at Crewe. Visit Oulton Park Race Circuit, Nantwich Marina and for a longer day out, Tatton Hall and Park, and Delamere Forest are an easy half hours drive. There are lovely walks across farmland from the site.
You will appreciate when you arrive. how well maintained and very pretty this site is and the staff and owners are incredibly friendly. There is no guest check in service so you will need to be caravan savvy. I do send instructions if I can not meet you at site. I do not live on site.
Please bring your own bath towels, hand towels and bedding for the sofa bed if using that. The other beds will be made up on arrival, basic toiletries, cleaning items and a welcome tray of refreshments is provided for your convenience.
The caravan will be cleaned before and after your stay but please tidy and remove litter to the bin areas on leaving.

Just got back after a weekend away in diane’s caravan, the caravan was amazing and had everything we needed, there was games to play and lots of films to keep us entertained in the evening. The site pub was lovely, we were welcomed by staff when we went in and had a couple of games of bingo to. My daughter enjoyed exploring the lake with my partner on the kayak’s. we also got a little fishing done right outside the caravan. Lovely caravan and Diane was very helpful and welcoming. Thanks again xx
Thanks for taking trouble to review. Really pleased weather allowed you to take the kayaks out too

Been many times to Dianes Caravan. We are friends of the family and thoroughly enjoy staying often at Dianes holiday home. Not only is it such a tranquil relaxing place to recoup after a hectic week but also great for our family to regroup and enjoy time together, whether just watching movies and playing games or being more active going for walks in the nearby fields or using the kayaks on the lake. We have spent many a time off rowing behind the flash along the lake and following it's river to gorgeous scenic views and upon return cook up a meal and eat on the decking overlooking the beautiful lake, watching the ducks and sailing boats floating by. It's a truly beautiful place for any family to experience. Even with small children you can have a short drive out to nearby cinemas or swimming pools if need be for more family entertainment. I couldn't recommend this caravan more for a break whether a short weekend or a long fortnight I'm positive your family will truly appreciate it's tranquillity and surrounding beauty allowing you to take time and relax together as a family or with friends.

I have used this caravan frequently, with both my granddaughter (she took her first steps in the caravan!) and also my elderly parents. I cannot think of a more lovely spot to unwind. The caravan is right by the lake, and we have spent many hours both inside, looking through the windows, and out on the deck, just watching the water fowl and other lake users. We were there during a thunderstorm and it felt so cosy, watching the wild weather outside, whilst snuggled under the throwover on the comfy couches. We have also been there in red hot weather, and sitting out on the deck with a breeze coming off the lake, and a nice glass of wine in hand was a real treat. We love walking round the site, admiring other caravans gardens. Some are amazing! A truly beautiful place. Diane could not do more to make our stays as comfortable as possible. If you are looking for a stay in this area, look no further.
