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.

hated it so much i left early

Gaer Hyfryd Caravan Club Site
we have been to this site in the past when the previous owner had the site and it was very good. we thought we would do a short weekend this time and looking forward to it. upon arrival we was allocated a certain pitch which was not so good when i counted 14 pitches empty all weekend. the warden said we cant change . why ? very uneven pitch and small bits of slate everywhere. the whole drive and all pitches are very bitty slate what panthers into your awing /unit making a right mess. . from what i seen the warden wanted to get all units on the outside to look busy but just putting anyone anywhere. the first night we had a campervan either side of us and alls we heard all night is sliding doors of the campervan and then again in the morning. no sleep . when i opened the blinds up i was shocked to see some woman letting her 2 dogs mess right at the back of my van. they then proceeded to walk at the back of all the vans thinking it was the dog walk. she was not the only one. where was the respect the site and the other peoples privacy. saying that the one dog walk field was full of cows with horns so i don't think id be going in it. the other field to walk dogs was sheep but it was a muddy field with sheep in and you come back with it all over your shoes. toilets was functional but 3 * overall id say this site needs to improve the small pitches /dog walks/ get rid of the terrible slate drive and please take a very experienced warden on whos is friendly/ good customer service . they are the face of your business. it was the worst weekend in history sorry.

Great base for walking…

Gaer Hyfryd Caravan Club Site
We’ve just come back from six nights on the site. Can’t fault it, clean facilities, helpful owners. Worked well for us as a base for some beautiful walks in the area. You can walk down to the Rhug farm shop in a few minutes, if you can afford their prices, or a five minute drive into Corwen, where there are eating places and a little bit of history. The pub to eat at though is The Grouse Inn at Carrog, the other side of Corwen. Views over the River Dee, and good honest pub grub.

Lovely Overnight Stay

Gaer Hyfryd Caravan Club Site
We only stayed at Gaer Hyfryd for one night as a stop over. We received an email a day or so before we arrived notifying us of our pitch allocation, upon arrival we received a lovely welcome and all site rules and Amenities explained. There was a small area for the children to play, with a set of goal posts as our children love a game of footy. There was also a basketball net too that kept them occupied. The site was very well kept with some lovely flower beds. The toilets and showers were small yet well kept and didn’t prove a problem to us during our stay. Although we didn’t take our dog there were plenty of guests with dogs and a very large field for dog walking. We found access to the site was very easy and plenty of room to manoeuvre on to the pitch. We will certainly be making plans to stay again next summer for a few days whilst we try out Bala lake.

Nice little site, shame about the cows

Gaer Hyfryd Caravan Club Site
Nice little site. Communal facilities are basic but clean and bright. On-site warden very helpful. 16amp supply always welcome. During our stay in August the stay was marred by the cacophony of noise from the cows. The site is surrounded - particularly on one side just a few yards away over the hedge with large cows sheds. The animals never stopped all Sunday afternoon, then started again at 10pm Sunday night and 6am Monday morning! Blasted things. Such a shame as it’s put us off returning. NB the 30 minute walk to Cynwyd and the Blue Lion is worth it. No decent pubs in Corwen.

Not really a CAMC site

Gaer Hyfryd Caravan Club Site
Nice enough area, and the site is located in a convenient location just off the A5. Close enough to be convenient, far away enough to be quiet and peaceful. There is a decent farm shop complex within walking distance, but not much more that is walkable (Corwen is, but via the A5). Each pitch has it's own water/waste/TV/240v hook-up, but there is no motorhome service point, there are pleasant views from the site. The site is listed as a CAMC site, but it isn't really. You can't book directly from the CAMC website or app, or check availability, instead you have to contact the site owner. There is no information room, and toilet block (although fine) is not up to the usual club standards. The hard-standings are not the usual gravel, I don't really know what's been used, but they get messy when wet and you'll tread muck into your unit. During our visit there was a single warden, who I don't think had been appointed through the normal club methods. A good little site and convenient for the many attractions in this lovely area.
