Camping in Cheshire
Marbury Camp and Lodge was established in 2018 overlooking the Cheshire Plains on the former Duchy of Lancaster Estate near Combermere Abbey. We are a small ‘glamping site’ that caters for tents, caravans and the all important luxury glamping pods for all year round get aways. Whilst we may be small and new to glamping, we aim for quality relaxation for busy families and hope to make your stay as personal and enjoyable as possible. Family and couple friendly.
We offer our clients a range of services from welcome packs, fire pits, fire wood and cycle hire. We do have plans to add to the services we offer, but will keep them a surprise for now ; )
Campsite Location & Hours
Experience our chilled glamping site at Marbury, just outside Whitchurch, on the Cheshire/Shropshire border.
Access to the campsite is best from the A49. At the Cholmondeley Arms turn down the side of the pub down Cholmondeley Road and on towards Wrenbury Village. After you hit the Cotton Arms we turn second right down New Road. Travel for a couple of miles then turn left under a railway bridge onto Hollyhurst Road. Travel around a mile (past a large farm on your left, and Bramble Livery on your right) and we are on the left. Don’t wait for us, just set up as per your arrival message and get a brew on. We’ll pop up later to say hello.
Meet The Owners
From the depths of Warrington, David is (still sort of) a solicitor and therefore has absolutely zilch experience in running a camping site. David has however been arranging camping trips for large groups of friends since high school so it’s fair to say camping and the outdoors is in his blood. Currently David enjoys arsing around on a digger and avoiding work by kayaking on the River Dee whenever possible.
Experience: Crap tents, expensive tents, caravans, Canadian lodges and a self-converted builder’s van/camper
Camping Style: Converted camper van.
Essential camping items: Bottle of wine, hoodie and flip flops.
Hailing from Shrewsbury and David’s long suffering wife is Em. First dabbled at camping at school and enjoyed “being with nature” apparently (she ran out of things to say at this point). Since then Em has progressed to staying in numerous caravans, tents and lodges throughout the UK. Refuses to stay in David’s camper van as it’s “his thing, not mine.”
Experience: School camping in soggy tent. Mum and Dad’s unbranded caravan at Butlins. Many camping and glamping trips since with David…
Camping style: 5 star hotel with spa.
Essential camping item : Air bed, hot water bottle, hair dryer, kettle, shoes, clothes rail, all the tinned food from home because Devon apparently doesn’t have ‘shops’, nice lights, something that smells nice (god knows what that is), gin, the list goes on…
