Why stay here ...

Penrhos Club Site provides the perfect getaway for the whole family with a range of activities and attractions to keep all ages entertained. Not only can you see the fabulous Snowdonia from the caravan site, the sandy beaches provide space and tranquillity. What's more they're only five minutes drive away. 

Of course, a visit to Penrhos Club Site would not be complete without a trek to Snowdon's rack and pinion mountain railway. This is a must for railway enthusiasts both young and old if only for the breathtaking views encountered during the journey. The site is located in Benllech, where the landscape is truly a sight to behold as Holyhead Mountain forms part of a natural paradise with wild flowers and sea birds. This scenery is beautifully rounded off with a memorable vista over the Irish Sea. Close to the caravan park is nearby Beaumaris and its castle explains Anglesey's historic importance from the days of Edward I.

Site facilities include a dog walk, a small shop that’s open all day with a lending library, and a children’s play area for ball games.

A return visit to the area after about 30 years

Penrhos Caravan Club Site
I had hoped to visit in July 2020 but the site was delayed from opening because of modernisation work overrunning and Covid-19 didn't help. As a rule I don't normally turn up early to Caravan Club sites but I arrived sooner than intended because of a clearer journey up the A5 from Chirk with roadworks finished earlier than planned. A 'don't even think about arriving early' locally produced sign instructs you to turn around, leave and park offsite nearby if you arrive before 1.00pm. Don't turn right, as I did, because you won't be able to turn your unit round until you get to Llangefni (where there is ample shopping at Asda (including cheaper fuel), Aldi and Lidl). After 1pm the welcome seemed warmer and I found a quieter pitch in the small area on the right hand side. Note chemical waste can't be disposed of here, it's at the toilet block. The toilet block is new and the best I've seen on the network. However the single taps over the washbasins seem only to provide lukewarm water despite warning stickers of very hot water. (Yes, I had it fully on red and I let it run a very long time.) The site is well placed for touring the area. There is beautiful birdsong to enjoy and my pitch was sheltered from the wind.

Best holiday ever

Penrhos Caravan Club Site
We have had the best holiday since getting our van 7 years ago, the site was perfect, so quiet and peaceful even though all pitches were full, lots of good information about what to do and see, the facilities were very well presented and spotless, Wardens were very helpful and the shop had a good range of essentials. With 2 dogs we took advantage of the dog walk which is off site so you can't hear other dogs greeting each other in your van which sometimes you can which spooks ours, long meadow grass areas for sniffing but mowed for easy walking. Arrived a bit before one but found a layby just past the California pub to wait in which was ideal. Will defiantly return, The Panton Pub was dog friendly and the food was excellent, the Phoenix Chinese in the next village is worth a visit, got loads of food which again was excellent. Benllech beach is beautiful, handy parking and cafes nearby and good shops in the village to stock up on supplies, with a good chippy on the row of shops just past the butchers, Just wish I had booked longer than a week.

Lovely Caravan Park

Penrhos Caravan Club Site
We are new to CAMC and we are trying out different parks/locations in our Campervan. Penrhos scores highly on friendly wardens (it is made quite clear you can’t arrive before 1pm on the welcome email). Best showers we’ve had. The new facilities block was first class and spotlessly clean. Fab dog walk, mown paths through a secure field near the entrance, our pointer cross loved jumping through the long grass. We extended our walk around the caravan park during the evening. We had pitch no 91 which was huge and in the smaller, quiet area, turn right after reception. The children’s play area looked really good. This park is best suited to caravans or Campervans as you really need 4 wheels to get anywhere. Brynteg village is a walk along a busy road or via a very overgrown path. There are no real walks direct from the site as many OS footpaths on Anglesey interior are overgrown and not pleasant to walk along. However you are in the middle of Anglesey and can drive to stunning beaches and the coastal path within about 15 minutes.

Warden Control!

Penrhos Caravan Club Site
Sadly we too were affected by warden control! It's difficult to gauge the exact time of arrival on site within a few minutes when you don't know what traffic conditions will be like to travel. We stopped en route to make sure we didn't arrive too early but made the mistake of arriving at 12.55 and were chastised by the officious female warden on duty that day who gave us a list of duties they have to do before they open at 1pm. "We're not sitting around doing nothing you know..." Sadly it set the tone for our stay as we didn't see anyone around the site after that, no-one to chat to etc. I'm sure there must be a team on this site who are absolutely lovely but unfortunately we didn't meet them. We know Anglesey well and it's truly a beautiful island. Members need to be aware that the site entrance is just after a bend so approach with care. The new facilities are fabulous! The service pitches are off the narrow service road so more difficult to access than other sites we've been to. We won't rush to return, but the site is fine if you want a club site on Anglesey.
