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 safe and 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.

The site that was forgotten

Having visited this area a number of times in the past always staying on Cae Mawr, we thought on this occasion we would take advantage of this site having a shower block and stay here. How disappointing, from the delayed arrival time of 13:00 for no apparent reason, to the general tiredness of the whole site, a shop that ISN’T open ‘all day’ to the far from usable Motorhome service point and only one chemical closet emptying point. We stayed for 5 nights and only saw one of the four wardens doing a ‘walk round’ at 9am and 5pm. Whilst very old the toilet block was kept very clean, but the rest of the site was neglected, our hard standing pitch had tufts of grass growing all over it, the 5mph signs on the road had all but disappeared and the sleeping policeman on the entrance road didn’t stand out due to the painted chevrons having worn off. Overall, in comparison to lots of our sites, this one is badly neglected and we will be back to Cae Mawr next time we visit Anglesey.

Great Site

This is the second time we have been to this site,the last time five years ago.Now there are some serviced pitches and the high grassy area has been turned into hard standings.The showers are a bit dated ,but in very good condition and impeccably clean..Actually the shower heads are away from the wall over your head so for me being a six footer ,this is ideal.Water pressure was great too.In the more modern shower blocks the shower head is fixed to the wall and normally too low.For me washing my hair runs the risk of touching the hot pipes. The wardens were excellent and helpful. The arrival time is 1pm but this is because the driveway is quite narrow. We got there for 12.30 not knowing this and met a caravan coming out having been turned away.But we went to turn around and were let in.Good timing i guess. Overall a lovely site and well placed for exploring the island. There is a Coop and Tesco express in Benllech only ten minutes away.And in LLangefni -only ten minutes in the other direction ,is a Lidl,Aldi and Asda. We had visitors staying in our awning (only £7.50 pp a night) and had bought a new airbed.Then found out our pump was inadeqaute.Not knowing there were pumps in Asda ,we went to The Range in Bangor,but were still there and back in under an hour. We travelled from Southport,Formby Bypass,Gateway Bridge (no charge for Caravans) M56 and A55.The only slight holdup was the Britannia bridge which is more or less the only single lane road on the whole journey. So much to see there,i think we will be making Penrhos an annual visit!

Efficient welcome?

Visited this site many times. Wardens usually friendly and efficient. Not this time. Signs posted making it clear not to arrive before 1pm and if you do, turn around and go away. Same on telephone when booking. Oh dear. Not the Friendly club on this occasion. Otherwise a nice site, toilet block well looked after, if dated.

Easter Break 2019

We have had a lovely Easter break I would well recommend this site, yes the facilities are a little dated but they were always clean and tidy and the showers were the best showers I’ve used on a site they were powerful and hot felt like I was having a massage after a good day climbing Snowdon. The dog walking facilitates were also a plus for me as there was a bridle path at the side of the site and a dog field on site that you can actually let your dogs off the lead. As we have 2 cocker spaniels they love a run. Another plus for me was the views they were beautiful, lots to do some beautiful beaches and a lovely National Trust place nearby. The staff were really friendly and helpful also, lovely site would definitely recommend.

March stay

Stayed in late March and had fantastic weather. The staff were lovely. The facilities were clean. Some people comment that the site facilities are dated. However, nothing was broken or dirty. The showers were lovely and hot (easily adjusted for personal choice) and powerful. The shower block and dishwashing room were both well heated. Hubby enjoyed washing up in the warm! The site was about 1/3 full, so not sure what it is like when the site is full. We loved it. Pub, California Inn, is in walking distance, 0.8 miles away. We found it very welcoming. The on site shop has the usual basics but there is a Tesco Express and a Co-op in Benllech, only 3 miles away. Lovely beach at Benllech, with a kiosk selling hot and cold drinks, ice creams etc. There is a nice looking pub near Tesco, but we did not try it. Great access to fabulous walks, the coastal path is superb. If you are into archaeology there are many fabulous sites to visit. Plas Newydd is also worth visiting, for the gardens and the amazing Whistler painting. Wonderful site would stay again.
