Why stay here ...

Pen-y-Llyn Club Certificated Location (CL) is exclusively for adults and their pets. The CL pitches are level hardstanding’s approximately 10Mtr * 6Mtr, and have potable water tap, grey waste point and 10 amps electric and are situated on a south facing 1-acre paddock. The site is ideally suited single overnight stays requiring early getaways to the Irish Sea ferries. The site is fully Wi-Fi enabled which is free to all customers, which enables you to stay in touch, plan your itinerary and stay longer on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

A few minutes’ walk from the CL you are on the Valley Wetlands RSPB reserve and the much acclaimed Anglesey coastal footpath - Rhosneigr to the east and Rhoscolyn to the west leading to the beach resort of Trearddur Bay; this particular stretch of the coastal footpath has some stunning views over the cliffs and Irish Sea overlooking colonies of seabirds nesting so don’t forget your camera and binoculars. The fabulous Cymyran beach leading to Rhosneigr is only a 10-15 minute walk from the main gate, and the Cymyran Hotel with its fabulous bar and bistro is a 5-minute walk away for drinks and meals out if you wish.

We especially welcome dogs on the site however, we do expect all owners to keep them on a suitable lead at all times and pick up after them and dispose of the waste appropriately in the bins provided. We have an onsite enclosed dog walk for CL customers, the local area is ideal for dog walking as the beach at Cymyran allows dogs all year round and most footpaths are along enclosed walkways.

The local area provides plenty to do including, Plane Spotting - RAF Valley, Walking the Anglesey Coastal Footpath, Cycling on Sustrans Cycle Route 8, Day trip to Cardiff by plane from Anglesey Airport which is 1 mile from the CL Site,  we can drop off and collect if required, take a day trip to Ireland by fast ferry, Golf on one of the many Anglesey Golf Courses, get out on the water with an exhilarating Rib Ride with SBS Boat charter, explore some of the local castles or venture further into the Snowdonia national park. Activities abound including just sitting and enjoying the local environment.

We advise you use 8" - 12" awning pegs as the pitches are made up of stone and gravel, the ideal pegs can be found at caravanalia.com and we also sell them on site.

All visitors to our CL must be adults (18 years and older) and members of the Club, the maximum stay is 28 days and we do not accept groups.

Very good few days

Easy access from A55. Nice open site with flat hardstanding pitches, and raised flower beds between pitches. 15 or 20 minute stroll to beach. Good spot for exploring Anglesey. Best toilet block we have ever seen on a CL. Excellent spot if you like aircraft, lots of activity from RAF Valley. Would definitely return.

Nice site but!

This is not just a 5 van CL site although the 5 vans are in their own area. The Cl site is in a decent size field but you are quite close to the other units considering the spacious field. There is one shower which is used by all 3 sites but on saying this we did not queue (perhaps we were lucky). Overall quite a nice site but paying £25 per night too expensive.

Fantastic site

We stayed here for a couple of days over the Easter break and really enjoyed the stay. On arrival I met Geoff who gave me lots of local information and places of interest, we were also given a folder full of information of pubs, walks, restaurants, shops, beaches and days out. There is a dog friendly beach within a 15 min walk, there is also a hotel which has a bar and serves food which is a 5-10 min walk away, there is a bus service which stops right outside the site entrance. There is a separate male and female toilet and there is a shower as well, all facilities are very clean. The highlight for us was the close proximity to RAF Valley where they carry out advanced pilot training, it was fantastic to see the jets taking off and landing, this obviously incurs some noise but it doesn’t take anything away from this fantastic club CL site. For dog owners there is also an enclosed dog walk on site where the dogs can be let off the lead, this is sadly lacking at a lot of club sites. At £18 a night for a fully serviced hardstanding pitch this CL puts the club sites charging £30 plus per night to shame, I only wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

Absolutely first class CL

One of the best CLs we have visited, a credit to the owners. Superb serviced pitches set within a lovely lawned area set well back from the road. The toilets and shower facilities were always spotless. Close to RAF Valley, so perfect for aviation enthusiasts. Wonderful, fully enclosed dog walk which even our cocker spaniel could not escape from and she enjoyed playing with the owners puppy. The owners are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. They have certainly gone the extra mile at Pen-y-Lyn with certain little touches that make your stay all the more pleasant. Buses stop right outside the entrance which is a bonus, especially if you have a motorhome as it is only a short ride to Holyhead and the supermarkets. Cwmyran beach is perfect for dog lovers and you can walk all the way to Rhosneigr. The hotel, approx 5 mins walk from the site, is perfect too after a long walk on the beach. The staff are lovely friendly people and made us most welcome and they are very dog friendly too. We shall definitely be returning next year to Pen-y-Lyn. The horrendous rain and gale force winds did not put us off!

If Carlsberg did CLs....

We've just returned from four nights on this lovely CL. Firstly, it was great to be able to book and pay online via their website; this made it much easier when compared to some CLs, when voicemails often aren't returned. On arrival we pitched up and the check-in with the owners was very easy. They provided a very comprehensive pack of tourist information. They were very welcoming and available if help was needed, but discrete if you preferred solitude. The pitches are excellent; all hardstanding with loads of room and each one with it's own fresh water tap and grey water waste drain, plus electric hook up. With great views from every pitch, we were able to witness great sunrises and sunsets from our van. The grounds are immaculately kept. The rubbish and toilet emptying service point was well marked and right next to the CL. We particularly liked the herb garden, with a note in the pack to help ourselves when cooking - we did! A strong WiFi signal on all pitches was also a real blessing; we needed to stay in touch with our solicitor during a house moving process and this made it really easy for us. There was also an excellent shower close by the main site; plenty of hot water and very clean at all times. There's also dog walking area on the site; I noticed poop bags and a bin were also provided - what a great additional touch. The location is good - on Anglesey nowhere is very far away. It's only a few minutes from J3 of the A55 and adjacent to RAF Valley, so there is some aircraft noise during the day, although the first flight isn't normally until 0800, but it's great if you're interested in aircraft. There's a 15-20 walk to the beach from the CL (with a hotel on the way with a bar and food, although we didn't try it). We walked along the beach to Rhosneigr, crossing the river footbridge on the coastal path. There's plenty of places to eat and drink in the village. This CL is also close to Holyhead, so ideal if you need to catch a ferry to Ireland, or are returning and want to stop off. The facilities and additional touches are excellent, combined with a personal but discrete service from the owners. Although not the cheapest CL we've stayed on, we nevertheless thought it was great value for money and just what we were looking for. On our last day Catherine stopped by to see if we'd enjoyed our stay and said we could leave when ready; it was so nice not to be rushed off the pitch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
