Why stay here ...

Holidaymakers who love their countryside simple and rural cannot help but fall in love with Gaer Hyfryd Club Site. The park, with its combination of luscious green countryside and imposing mountains rising in the background means there is no caravan site more picturesque and scenic to take the family.

If you're interested in gardens, make a visit to the National Trust's Bodnant, only a 30 mile drive from Gaer Hyfryd Club Site. Here you'll find one of Britain's greatest gardens famous for its Laburnum walk. A little closer to the caravan park is the Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall - one of the seven natural wonders of Wales. The area is well regarded as a walker's paradise with a choice of simple strolls to a lung-busting trek over the Berwyns. Located in the Welsh countryside of Corwen, the park is not far away from the Eisteddfod, the Canal and Telford's bridge over the Dee.

Peaceful and friendly

Lovely well kept site with very friendly owners who could not help enough. Plenty of places to visit just a short drive away and even the coast is not to far for a day trip. We will be back.

Outstanding natural beauty

I ditto previous reviews, yes the toilet block is old and not what we're used to in CAMC, but very clean and serviceable. Very friendly welcoming wardens. The views are beautiful, of hilly country side, this is the edge of the Snowdonia National park so not the dramatic views of mountains, and the best views are at the end of the site which is elevated, and during our stay was occupied by seasonals. Wardens are very particular about their grass, which is understandable, so only breathable ground sheets allowed. We had a 10 night stay and went out and about every day. We visited the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall (the highest in Wales), rode the train to the top of Snowdon, (book in advance, we got there at 12 and couldn't get on until 4, even though there are several trains running every half hour!). Went to the nearest two NT trust sites, Chirk castle.....well worth a visit, Erddig... a bit dark inside, but good walks in the grounds. Several castles, which have fascinating history. Lake Vynwy.....very dramatic reservoir. So lots to do in the area. A previous review was helpful telling us to look out for the Bison on stilts at the entrance, I thought it would be a cute little sign, but no, it is actually a full size Bison...on stilts.

First stop of Wales roadtri[

We first stayed on this site over twenty years ago when we had a caravan and we loved it then. Now we have had a change and have a campervan (Trigano Tribute) This year for our two weeks hols we have done a memory lane trip with a few new places! This was our first stop and the welcome from John and Nerys was amazing! Would have liked to have stayed longer and hopefully will be back next year! Its a lovely little site with some amazing views the faclities are spotless. Well recommended!

Nice few days

Despite the weather (wet and windy) had a good stay mid September. Wardens very friendly and helpful. Peaceful open location but very handy for A5. Yes toilet block not the most modern but clean and perfectly adequate. Bit of a downside was the onsite 'shop', only toilet chemicals and ice creams, no milk or bread etc, but it is a very small site so maybe that's understandable. In some ways a bit like a large CL. Good location for exploring the area. Snowdonia and Chester easily reachable and nearer to hand Llangollen and the canal / aqueducts, and some National Trust places. Excellent food at the Grouse in Carrog. Would happily return.

Disappointing

This site disappointed us. Sure it's in a wonderful location, but for the price paid we felt the facilities were poor compared with the standard we are used to on owned Club Sites. The toilet block, although clean, badly needs refurbishment or preferably replacing altogether, the water and disposal facilities are a bit primitive, and we are not sure that the distance between some pitches is adequate for fire protection. On the other hand, the wardens are perfectly friendly (they don't seem to be on site overnight) and the the place has the fastest and cheapest wifi we have ever experienced on a Club Site or anywhere else!
