If I had to live elsewhere

We have been coming to this site for many years and over that time good changes have occurred. Michael and Joan as hosts are helpful in settling us in and provide re-cycling bins for food waste.A new access for motorhomes to take on water has been put in.I use my old watering can as it is easier for me. The toilet waste site is in a sensible place.As other reviews have said the site is unbeatable for scenery and location to the Horseshoe falls and pass to the Abbey..We cycle along the canal paths as far as Chirk. .To each their own and little things maybe are big things to others but for us we will always make this the first stop in a visit to Wales.If I could pick a place as an alternative to living in Northumberland it would be Abbey Nurseries

A Pleasant CL

Booked for 8 nights initially, stayed 11. Very welcoming, friendly owners. Marked down slightly for access to local places only because there is no bus service. I pitched alongside the boundary hedge and did not find the noise from the adjacent A road to be a problem. A very scenic site which had all the facilities I wanted. The minor negative points were a weak Wi-Fi and the CDP; it was adequate but could benefit from some improvement. Recycling facilities matched the high standards in our home county, including Michael and Joan providing a kitchen caddy for food waste. Certainly a site I would use again.

"Interesting" CL

We found this site in convenient spot for walkers, and for access to places of interest by vehicle. Other reviewers have mentioned walks along the canal path into Llangollen in one direction and along the canal to the Chainbridge across the River Dee in another. We thought this site was a gem. very basic (no toilets) and the owners were very nice people. The only negatives were the TV reception was very poor, and the owners' WiFi signal was 'poor'. We shall most certainly use this site again - I wish we had a Narrow Gauge (5) loco to try out on the site Railway track.

Very Nice C L .

Just returned from our second visit to this lovely cl. As others have said it is a great location to Llangollen either by road 5 minutes or a walk along the canal towpath about 30 minutes. It is about one and a quarter miles along the canal to town. The owners were very welcoming to us. We had pre booked for three nights and ended up staying for six nights. There are a couple of greenhouses with various plants and things in them but the five hook up pitches all face forward from these with views of the countryside, sheep and all. We will definitely use this cl again and would recommend it .

Could be a lot better

This is a lovely big field beautifully kept but there are only 3 hook-ups all in one corner. We were only in a small motor/home but were not allowed on the field as the owner told us that because it had been raining we would get stuck on the drive up to it. In fact it was only a slight gradient but we had to park by a greenhouse that was full of rubbish. We were glad that only 1 night was available that weekend as we would have booked for 2. We have been in the Caravan Club for over 40 years and only ever used CLs but this one was one of the worst. Otherwise it was in a beautiful area and very convenient for Llangollen so it is a shame the owners didn't understand what us caravanners like.
