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.

Nice tranquil site

Penyllan Farm
We only booked to stay here for one night as we needed to be in the area to view a caravan we were hoping to purchase and so the location suited us perfectly. Access is easy and some distance from the road so there is little or no road noise. The fishing lakes are nice and they do seem to attract a fair amount of fishermen/women so you do get some traffic from people coming to fish but they have their own access road down to the lakes. Amenities are basic, chemical waste disposal, freshwater tap, rubbish collection point and EHU at £20 a night it seemed a little on the high side but I guess with electricity prices going through the roof this is to be expected, but it was always about location for us and it was convenient. Pub within easy walking distance, although cannot comment as we didn't go there and a small shop in the village for essentials but just 2 miles down the road there was a large Lidl or Aldi (sorry cannot remember which!) I'm not sure it's an area we would return to for holidaying but if you want to explore this part of Wales, enjoy your fishing and peace and quiet then this may be the site for you.

Thanks Sharon + Nigel

Peaceful and Serene

Penyllan Farm
This is a fairly new site, set within a working farm. The pitches are a little on the narrow side but the views around the campsite make up for that, they are picture postcode and the location was so peaceful, there are several fishing lakes on the site too. This is an ideal location if you just want to unwind, relax and listen to the birds sing. The town of Wrexham is within a 5 minute car ride and the local taxi services are very reasonably priced. There is a bus stop just outside the site but the buses are very few and far between. There is a lovely large antique shop within a 10 minute walk from the site, which is definitely worth a look around. Sharon was so lovely and accommodating and we will definitely be visiting again.

Real Gem

Penyllan Farm
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.
