All caravaners are different, and what we look for from a site will be very different too. In my case I like small, quiet and simple sites in beautiful areas with good dog walking facilities, If that sounds good to you, then Henfryn is a hidden gem waiting for your visit.
The site is at Groes, just few miles from Denbigh, and with easy access to the north Wales coast, the Clocaenog forests and local towns like Ruthin and Mold. This CL site itself is a gently sloping grass field with ample space for 5 vans and the views from the site across the Clwyd hills are superb.
Facilities on site are basic with just a single toilet and information hut, but all pitches have electric hook-ups and easy access to water points. No shower block, shop or children's play area - and that is just fine by me! Site charges ( June 2015 ) were just £12 per night inc electric.
The site is immediately next to a country lane, but this has very little traffic (none at night) so it is extremely quiet and peaceful with just the sounds of the countryside to keep you company. On the other side of the lane is a small forest with a wonderful walk alongside a gentle stream - but be warned, to get down to the stream involves a steep decent so both you and your dogs do need to be reasonably fit. It's well worth the effort though.
All the services you need are nearby in Denbigh, which has both Morrisons and Lidl supermarkets along with a host of smaller shops, restaurants etc. TV reception was fine on the standard caravan aerial and mobile phone reception was excellent on vodaphone and adequate on 3 and EE
One tip for dog owners - when returning to the site through Denbigh, look for a lay-by on the main road just after leaving the town and pull in. In the corner is a footpath walk leading to a small forest, or up to a superb viewpoint if you prefer, either one being ideal to give your dog a last run before returning to the site.
