Overwater Marina CL, Coole Lane, Newhall, CW5 8AY, Tel 01270812677

To Find Site:- From Audlem on the A525 Whitchurch road watch out for Overwater Marina sign and take Coole Lane on the right. This lane is narrow in places but there are passing places. In about a mile turn right into lane leading to Overwater Marina.

Overwater Marina is quite a large operation consisting not only of the marina, a campsite and a separate CL. The latter offers five hardstanding pitches on the approach road to the Marina reception. The pitches are long enough for most units but not wide enough to fit a car or awning alongside although there is plenty of room on the adjacent grass. Each pitch has its own picnic table. Electric points are to the back of the pitches and are rated at 16 amps using blue CEE17 connectors. A long cable may be required for a couple of the pitches. There is a handy fresh water tap across from the pitches. CL users are invited to empty waste water into the hedge at the rear of the pitches. CL users can share the campsite toilet facilities which consist of a small toilet block consisting of four “bathrooms” containing a toilet, shower and hand basin. There is a chemical toilet emptying point at the rear of this block and an excellent motorhome service point beyond that. There is site wide WiFi which is free, login details given on arrival. Its generally OK for a bit of browsing and emails but I doubt the signal strength would allow streaming. Alternatively, I found the 4G pretty good on site. The main site reception which contains a shop and a café, the shop sells some food essentials and camping and boating equipment. The main campsite has railway themed camping pods. There appear to be no facilities for children. The terms of using the CL, other than CMC  membership, is that full payment is taken on booking. A full refund is offered if you cancel before 30 days of your stay. Cancellation up to 14 days before arrival a 50% refund is offered. The price for the CL includes two adults, and unit. Children, over 5, and extra adults are charged extra.

The main attraction of this site is that it is easy to explore the pretty Shropshire Union Canal from the site. Be this by walking into the village of Audlem, about a mile along the towpath or exploring further afield. In the main season the site has a ferry service into Audlem at weekends. The village has several pubs and a Co-Op food store.
