Why River Dane Is The Perfect Destination For You This Summer

Situated in the charming village of Somerford, River Dane Holiday Park offers the chance for relaxation and peace with stunning views of the Cheshire countryside. You may be questioning what there actually is to do outside the Park, but there’s a whole heap of things to discover on your break away from home.

River Dane
The number one recommendation is, of course, River Dane. Just over a ten-minute drive from the holiday park, River Dane is the perfect place for you to take an afternoon stroll. Breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the beautiful sights along the three-mile stretch. If you’re bringing your dog along for the hike, be sure to keep it on a lead. The river is also a wonderful place for those who enjoy fishing. With fish like Dace, Grayling and Chub swimming along, you’ll always catch something no matter your level of experience.

Located just under four miles away from the River Dane Holiday Park in one of the most affluent parts of Cheshire, sits the flourishing market town of Congleton. Explore the Congleton Museum, go antique shopping at Victoria Mill Antiques and Collectors Centre, or relax with a beer at Beartown Brewery. Visiting with children? Congleton Paddling Pool is the perfect place to splash around and cool off in the summer heat. The free pool has been a hit with youngsters since its opening in the 1930s and will only continue to grow more popular. As you can see, there’s something for everyone!

Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre
Explore the wonders of the universe at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre. Hosting the world’s first completely steerable radio telescope, the Centre is home to a number of exhibits for people of all ages to enjoy. Start your day at the Planet Pavilion with the largest working scale model of our solar system in the world. Through interactive screens and games, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the Milky Way and the size of the universe. In the Space Pavilion, you’ll come to know more about how scientists discover and understand foreign objects floating around in space, as well as how the universe began, what exactly a black hole is, and what the Lovell Telescope actually monitors. It’s the perfect day trip for those budding scientists!
