Why stay here ...

If you're looking around for an island holiday, then look no further than Cae Mawr Club Site - an unspoilt, secluded spot, with miles and miles of varied and beautiful coastal scenery. The caravan park is located in Marianglas, with only a short drive to the  stunning beaches of Anglesey. It's the perfect setting for outdoor activities whether it's sailing, swimming, riding or just a simple stroll along the island's shoreline. The site is also a haven for dogs, with many dog-friendly beaches nearby. If you need to stock up on supplies, several shops are conveniently located, just a short drive away from the caravan park.

Its unspoilt landscape and family friendly activities makes Cae Mawr Club Site a perfect addition to the island's tranquil setting. With its own atmosphere and unique climate, Anglesey will never cease to amaze and inspire you. Near to the caravan site is Traeth Bychan, a small and highly regarded beach that has proved ideal for a picnic or a spot of exploration. Be sure to take advantage of the beach's boat launching facilities. This part of the world also provides a good stopover for travellers going to and from Ireland.

Simply not good enough

This was our third visit to Cae Mawr. However it was clear from the moment we arrived that the managers on this occasion were not having a good day. And it was about to get considerably worse. Whilst being very careful not to hit a very large and badly sited motorhome on a bend I didn’t spot my caravan had clipped a wooden log on the opposite side of the road. This rolled under my van ripping the waste pipe mountings from underneath. I reported this to the site manager, who was very quick to come round and try to fix the damage. He was equally quick to remove the offending log to the edge of the site where it remained throughout our visit. On returning home I wrote to the Club to ask what their policy was on using logs, presumably to discourage vehicles from running over the grass. Some 4 weeks later their reply took me rather by surprise. There was no attempt to answer the simple question I had asked. They were, however quick to praise the site manager for his help in trying to fix the damage and point out “this isn’t something we would accept liability for”. They were also keen to state the “responsibility falls with the driver who is in care and control of the vehicle to ensure that they can safely complete any manoeuver before proceeding with the route they are taking around the site”. The fact that, on this occasion the route was a hazard seems irrelevant. This raises the question as to who is responsible for the safe siting of units and obstacles so drivers can manoeuver round the site safely? On previous visits to Cae Mawr, towing a twin axle van we have been asked not to pitch on this particular part of the site. The Clubs claims that no other incidents had been reported. However tyre tracks appearing where the log had been clearly showed other drivers had run over the grass whilst manoeuvring past the motorhome. Two questions, in my opinion still remain unanswered. Do site managers have any responsibility in making sure units are sited so drivers can manoeuver round the site safely? And what measures are in place to make sure any ‘obstacles’ cannot damage people or property? Returning briefly to the site in general, this was not up to the standard we have seen on previous visits. The grass was long and particularly untidy round some of the seasonal pitched units. There were also areas of grass where groundsheets had not been lifted. On previous visits the managers have been very proactive in making sure this is done. However, to the present team this appears not to be important. We pay a lot of money to use Caravan on Motorhome sites and, quite frankly expect better than this.

Lovely Site but Warden allergic to dogs?

This was our first visit to this site. It is a lovely site and very quiet. The completely level pitches are at the bottom of the site and everyone was so friendly when we were there! Probably more dogs on the site than people as plenty of great beaches nearby that are dog friendly. We were a bit surprised that at many beaches car parking was £3.50 for 4 hours unless you knew where free parking was so do your homework. Anglesey is a lovely island and we will return. One annoying thing however was haven driven for 4 hours so a bit tired when we were setting up the warden told us our dog was in the way of access to some of the grass pitches - fair enough. He then said he was allergic to dogs and to move "it" meaning the dog. We were taken aback by the abrupt manner of the comments and for a site that has so many dogs a bit odd such a warden is placed there. The wardens had only been on site a couple of weeks and the female warden was very nice and helpful but very disappointed in the way were addressed!

return visit

We have visited this site since the late 80s and always enjoy the location on Anglesey. The site has always been a credit to the hard-working site managers, who maintain it to a high standard. It is hard to criticise the site with the exception of the attitude of dog owners who, despite knowing that they should not allow their dogs to foul the site, persist in walking their dogs on site for toilet duties, admitted most of them do pick up, which isn't a pleasant sight to watch when you're sitting in your van having breakfast! Then they persist in depositing the said waste at the service points in with the domestic waste, instead of in the dedicated dog waste bins. This is particularly bad when members have two or three dogs. Sadly, this seems to be becoming the norm, not just at Cae Mawr, but on all Club sites.

Another enjoyable stay here.

Good clean well maintained & set out site. Ideal location for Anglesey & N Wales. Over the years we have stayed here many times & will continue to do so. No toilet block but that's OK & is reflected in the very good prices. First class peaceful site. :-)

A pleasant stay

We booked in for three nights, using the site as a stop over before moving on to a rally event at (just a mile away). We expected a site that was at the same high level as all the other Caravan Club sites we have stayed on, and we were not disappointed! This site is well kept, nicely landscaped, ideally sited with easy access via the surrounding main roads and in a good location for all the local attractions. The Wardens were friendly and very helpful. There is no shower/toilet block but this was not a problem to us. If we return to this area, we will b e using this site again.
