What makes this C.L. so special? Perhaps the question should be ‘Who makes….?’ And the answer, of course, is ‘The owners, Janet and John’. This delightful couple seem to have anticipated the caravanner’s every need. They are available to help and advise, but never intrusive. They keep everything well-maintained so the site looks really good. The summerhouse is packed with local and tourist information, maps, books, DVDs, indoor and outdoor games to borrow. There are good quality toiletries in the shower and toilet. Then there is the fantastic view, the ease of pitching and the peace and quiet. There are plenty of places to visit: Powis Castle, the interesting old town of Welshpool, the Montgomery Canal for walking and cycling, Lake Vyrnwy and various gardens. True, none of them are on the doorstep, but then Pencraig is a place where you can really get away from it all. If you fancy a day without driving, then borrow a large-scale map from the information room and walk from site, or relax on site and drink in that view. If you’re reading this and other extremely positive reviews and thinking ‘A site like that will already be booked up’ then you may well be wrong. We stayed for 6 nights in August and on only one of those nights were there more than two caravans on site. Many caravanners may overlook this area and head straight for the coast. Those who do miss a real gem of a C.L.
Response from the Club:
Thank you so much for your reviews and we are so delighted you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to advise that Janet and John have left the CL Site and Pencraig CL is now under new ownership. The good news is the new owners, Karen and Rupert, are still running the site as a CL with the Club and look forward to welcoming members of the Club to stay with them.
