Why stay here ...

Penyllan Farm is owned and worked by the owners, Nigel and Sharon and their son Gordon. It is a working beef and sheep farm with an excellent livery yard and three renowned course fishing pools. The farm is set within 500 acres amongst the rolling south Wrexham countryside. During the mid-summer months it holds a regular car boot sale and is renowned as the home of North Wales's largest Fireworks display held every November. This new caravan site has hard standings with electrical hook ups and its own access drive. It is set overlooking the three ponds and is within its owned fenced area. The farm has a small shop that sells local produce including farm fresh eggs, vegetables and jams.

The farm is situated less than 2 miles to the south of Wrexham in the village of Marchwiel. Wrexham is North Wales's principal town which has the world famous St Giles Church and the tomb of Elihu Yale, the founder of Yale University. The town offers an array of national chain and local shops, local market, a University and a good selection of pubs, cafe bars, cafes and restaurants. Erddig Hall and its beautiful gardens which is one of the National Trusts jewels in the crown is within a pleasant 15 minute walk.

Within a 5 minute drive is the famous Bangor on Dee National Hunt Racecourse and the beautiful River Dee which is a magnate for game fishing. Within a 5 minute walk of the site is the River Clywedog Industrial Heritage Trail, which follows the river through the times of history. The site is surrounded by wonderful walks on miles of public footpaths.

Within a 30 minute drive is the world famous ancient Roman City of Chester with its magnificent racecourse and ancient monuments. The world famous pretty town of Llangollen is a 20 minute drive away. Closer to home, the Red Lion village country pub is a 5 minute walk away and serves real ales, has a reputation for very good food and has an even warmer welcome from the Landlords Andy & Clare. The local village has local shops and post office, but less than a 5 minute drive away are all the UK's major supermarket stores situated within Wrexham.

Nigel, Sharon and Gordon are looking forward to welcoming you to their home and know that once you have visited, Penyllan Farm will become your favourite site to visit.

Real Gem

This is a lovely welcoming site in a beautiful setting situated next to the fishing pools on a farm, you’d never believe it was so close to the local town and surrounding areas. We found it perfectly situated for days out all over north wales and Cheshire without spending hours in a car a real little gem. We’ll definitely be back soon. Thanks again Sharon and Nigel for your hospitality and we’re sure your new site will be a success.
