Camping Out: Caravan & Campsites
As tourism has slowly been on the up in the North Wales region there has also been a steady increase in the accommodation options open to visitors.
Although holidays in Wales have been historically typified by guesthouses and cosy B&Bs, innovative ideas like Airbnb and glamping have shaken things up, opening the flood-gates to all sorts of accommodations opening up shop. When it comes to getting the most out of a rural location like Denbighshire however, sometimes the old ways are best. Even those who have the money to afford to stay in the finest hotels in Denbighshire should consider roughing it at a caravan or campsite to truly appreciate what Denbighshire has to offer.
Our recent stay in Mowbreck Park reminded us of just how simple and relaxing a stay in a caravan site can be. You’re given all you need to cook and clean with, and there’s easy access to local amenities, so you can quickly furnish yourself with everything you need to slip into a life of easy relaxation: who could want for more?
The following campsites have been chosen for their stellar reviews and recommendations we’ve received from visiting friends:
Hendwr Caravan Park
Lying right at the foot of the Berwyn Mountain Range, you’d be hard-pressed to find better views of the Denbighshire scenery than at Hendwr Caravan Park. Still a working sheep farm, this caravan park is the closest thing you’ll probably get to living the farm life, with the added bonus of onsite wifi, laundrette and newly refurbished shower and toilet block. Pitch up a tent, bring your own caravan or purchase a static caravan of your own!
Tyn yr Eithin
If you were thinking of taking a look at Denbigh Castle during your visit to Denbighshire, then you could do a lot worse than choosing Tyn yr Eithin as a base of operations for your stay. The grounds at this family-run campsite have a commanding view of the town and castle. By staying here you’ll also be within walking distance of restaurants, shops and supermarkets – not to mention a handful of welcoming pubs.
There are loads of options open to visitors looking to stay at the Abbey Farm Caravan park. Pitch up a tent in the main camping field for the best prices, or dig a little deeper and stay in one of the purpose-built glamping pods. For a more comfortable holiday experience that still puts you right in the heart of the countryside, you can stay in one of three self-catering cottages, including the massive Farm House which sleeps 14 people in total.
Set within the Clwydian Hills, an official Area of Outstanding Beauty, this is an exemplary caravan park and campsite that offer spacious pitches in combination with outstanding facilities. Reviews of the park frequently point out how attractive it is, as well as how as the clean state its always found in. Modern facilities are open to all visitors including free wifi access and its situated close to the Dyserth Waterfalls, as well as plenty of walks in the spectacular countryside.
