Queen Charlotte’s Wood comprises of nine acres of undulating woodland and sheltered grass sites that make it suitable for Group or Patrol camping. The site is positioned between Frodsham and Helsby Hills, at the end of the sandstone ridge that runs NW to NE across the Cheshire plain, making it an ideal base site for those completing their Duke of Edinburgh Award or wishing to walk the Sandstone Trail. Many campers come to Queen Charlotte’s Wood to get back to basics and practice bushcraft or backwoods cooking, others come for the excellent hiding places to play wide games and spots to build dens and Bivi’s. The jewel in Queen Charlotte’s crown is undoubtedly ‘The Hideaway’ – an extremely comfortable cabin that can sleep up to thirty.

Local Area Information
Looking for a secluded place to camp? Queen Charlotte’s Wood has 11 distinct and beautiful pitches to choose from. Located between the quiet backroads of Frodsham and Alvanley and not far from the Sandstone Trail, it is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Outside there is enough area for up to 150 people to camp on the field or on Patrol sites. Altar fires are available for most sites and the wardens prefer groups to use these, but there are some ground level concrete slabs for those who prefer them. However wood is in short supply and campers are requested to be frugal in their usage or to bring supplies of their own. Each pitch has its own standpipe; showers and toilets are available for campers at the southern end of The Hideaway.
We are currently trialling having the Camp site open all year round
