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.

Fabulous stay

Penrhos was our 1st stay ever with our new motorhome and we were not dissapointed. I was greeted by name when i checked in which i thought was lovely by very friendly and welcoming and helpful hosts. We chose our pitch and set ourselves up which with the services readily available. The site was spotless peaceful with stunning views. The toilet/ shower block was spotless and very modern and warm. We didnt use the other facilities but im presuming they were equally as clean. Tv reception was very good. Also on site there was field for exercising your dog which i thought was brilliant and there were dog waste bins around the site very well thought about. We had a very quiet and peaceful stay and the weather was with us too with the bright strong sunshine you wouldnt really associate with mid October. Definitely a place to stay, we will certainly stay here again. Thankyou for a wonderful 1st stay.

Most enjoyable stay

Having read some of the not so good reviews about this this site and the Warden's attitudes I must confess that I was a bit concerned about visiting the site. How wrong we were. We had travelled from Stoke on Trent and stopped on the A55 near Bangor for 20 minutes to ensure we did not arrive early. This is my 6th holiday in 2020 and I know how much extra work the wardens have to put in to sanitize everything prior to the arriving visitors. The site approach off the main road is up a slight incline and is very narrow with only room for 1 way traffic. The grass verges are beautifully maintained with painted white rocks to stop the grass being ploughed up. The entrance into the site is also narrow, there is not the room to install barriers and no room for anyone to turn around. I can fully understand why the wardens are strict in this regard. We arrived at 1.05pm and was greeted by a very friendly warden who explained the covid rules for the site whilst we waited to book in. The lady warden in the office had noted our Reg No and knew who my wife was when she went in to book. This was a nice touch as it had never happened to us before. We found the site to be clean and tidy and the mower was in use every day keeping the grass down. The new toilet was spotless, you could eat your dinner off the floor. The dog walk was brilliant, it is a fenced field next to the road. Grass lanes had been cut through the field creating many paths for the dog to enjoy. There is only one waste disposal point on site by the toilet block. This is not surprising as a septic tank is used on site. The pitches are nicely spaced out around the site. The view from the top of the drive is to die for, you can see the whole of Snowdonia spread through 180 degrees in front of you. We stayed for 4 most enjoyable nights, the wardens always spoke to us when we passed them. This site is in a beautiful part of the world and we have already booked again in 2021.

An Enjoyable Stay

We unfortunately had a problem with our caravan on our journey from Somerset, our caravan arrived on site on a low-loader. The staff were very helpful at this stressful time. They recommended a mobile mechanic, who ,thank goodness, could carry out the repair on site. We had to change our plans and extend our stay. All four wardens were extremely helpful. This is a lovely site, with excellent facilities. Anglesey is a beautiful place to explore and this is an ideal site to do if from.

Over Zealous Warden

My husband and I booked 2 nights at Penrhos CC site on Angelsey. We live about an hour plus away, we checked the traffic and set off according to arrive by or after 1pm. However the traffic flowed quickly and we got to the site about 14 minutes before one o'clock , unable to stop on A55 as the laybys were full, when we turned off for Penrhos via Marian Glas, we only found one suitable layby which was no unauthorised parking, which we certainly wouldn't use as it was a cemetery parking, there were a couple of laybys on the opposite side of road occupied by vans. We turned into site off a busy road, the site is located in between bends, as we turned at the point of no return, we saw the home made signs about no arrival before 1pm We then thought we could pull over on driveway but the only pull in had bollards across an empty fenced off area We proceeded to arrivals point, we knew we were about 14 to 12 minutes early. We were confronted by a younger male warden, who spoke aggressively to my husband to turn round, we were towing and to go down the road to a layby which weren't available when we passed, his attitude was not good, however the day was saved by his partner or wife who asked us to check in. She was fine, I asked her why the problem, we were not in a rush to book in, just couldn't see the logic of leaving the site, accessing a busy road with limited vision from the site for being slightly early, we are not in a habit of trying to get in early but we were shocked at the aggressive treatment especially when the club official signs say croeso or welcome. It was some welcome and had the female warden not diffused the situation, we would have cancelled and moved to another site. I asked her why we had to leave site before 1pm and was told due to emergency vehicles getting in, so I take it then at 1pm when in the summer there are queues, how do the emergency vehicles get passed, or does the club gets helicopters in?? We were the only arrivals at that time. Maybe people should be pushed forward opposite toilets where 4 units could easily be accommodated if needed or drive widened as there is room We were surprised at the home made signs We noticed that the site, especially the grass isn't as well maintained, and we also noticed that it was the elder warden in the motorhome who seemed to be doing all the work, in fairness toilets were clean but letting only 2 people at a time was poor, other sites with smaller facilities let in 4. We have been members for a while and in all honesty have not met such rudeness. At the end of the day we are customers and expect better treatment, so I feel the club need to sort this out, people travel huge journeys and shouldn't have this treatment on arrival, understand arriving 30 minutes plus. Think the warden needs customer dealing course. Get Outlook for Android

Enjoyable stay

We stayed at Penrhos for the two weeks beginning the 15th August 2020 when the site first opened. This is a great site for visiting Anglesey. The new toilet block is great and modern - in terms of the wrist band system that is in operation (I assume for all sites) it seemed quite strange that only three toilets and three showers were available to use in the ladies. two for mens i.e you potentially had to walk into a cubicle someone had just walked out of to use the shower etc. I didn't feel that comfortable with that aspect due to being in a small place with the current pandemic. We were really pleased the site had managed to open following the work and I didn't really notice any weeds etc but the major bug bear I have is that the grass is kept too long. It was like this on arrival and during all of our stay. I noticed the warden cut the grass but didn't notice the length change! I've noticed this issue on other club sites so maybe the CMC could address this. You feel like you are walking through an overgrown field to get to the park and some pitches that are offset from the road. One thing that disappointed me on site was that other members, young and old felt the need to drive quite fast around the site. It was school holidays and young children were out on bikes and it felt quite dangerous. Then they slowed right down for the speed bumps! We were on site during Storm Erin and Storm Francis. There were several people who felt they needed to move their cars to help protect their awnings etc and the wardens seemed very accommodating to this which was good. I was pleased to see the wardens operating a strict no arrivals prior to 1pm. I hope this is the new norm at CMC sites. Its annoying that some people want to arrive before the permitted time. Overall, this is a lovely site for families and couples. I have been several times over a ten year period, with and without children. You can sometimes hear children playing on the site next door. Penrhos is great for accessing the beaches at Benllech and LLigwy (thank to the lady warden for recommending LLigwy to us).
