Why stay here ...

Lady Margaret's Park Club Site boasts a range of pitches that are located in intimate tree-shaded glades and in open grassed areas. A pretty wooded parkland caravan site, the area is adjacent to the grounds of Chirk Castle in the heart of Marcher country. The castle remains the last Edward I Welsh castle still lived in today and features the award-winning gardens with thatched 'Hawk House', shrub garden, lime tree avenue and yew topiary. There are plenty of walks to enjoy in the local area and also a lovely dog walk from the site.

There are several historic houses and castles to visit that are characteristic of Chirk and located right on the doorstep of Lady Margaret's Park Club Site. Further afield there are opportunities to explore the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as Ceiriog Valley, the Berwyn Mountains and Pistyll Rhaeadr, the highest waterfall in Wales. At Llangollen, train enthusiasts can view the scenic Dee Valley by steam train or by canal boat providing a momentary rest. You might also consider a visit to the National Trust property, Erddig, reported to be one of Britain's finest historic houses. After a hard day's sightseeing, you will find a selection of restaurants in the area offering incredibly good value and quality.

Peace and Tranquility

We spent a very peaceful and relaxing week here from 12th April this year my wife and I really enjoyed the site and its surrounding area, we have a motorhome and there was enough locally to keep us interested for our visit, you have Chirk Castle and its lovely park with all its footpaths right next door. Chirk rail station is just a 10 minute walk from the site which gives you access to Chester and North Wales, we took the train to lovely Shrewsbury where we had a riverboat trip had eggs benedict sitting outside by the old corn Market with the warm sunshine we could of been in Italy. I have to say that I feel that the club has not invested in this site and has failed to maintain it to an acceptable level for its members, on our visit it was quite apparent that things were falling apart, the pumps required to pump the sewerage up from the lower service points to the top had failed with no plan to replace them. The wardens Simon and Becky and their assistants work really hard repairing things to present the site at its best for the members that come without the clubs financial support. Welcome the wardens

Quiet site

Well laid out and maintained site with friendly, helpful Wardens. Primrose Dell, first turning on left is very peaceful and spacious and pretty flat. Right next door to ground of Chirk Castle, and easy walking into Chirk and along the canal, river and aqueducts. Definitely worth a couple of nights minimum.

Nice peaceful site

This was our very first stay at a CMC site. Upon arrival staff were friendly and gave us a map of the site.Due to arriving mid afternoon there were only 3 pitches left, so we had to drive round several times to locate where they were. The only one we could find was at the back of Bluebell Dell, right by the chemical/waste water drains and the storage compound, so not a very attractive pitch! The area was under a canopy of trees so very secluded, quiet and peaceful. Lots of rabbits and squirrels darting about and there was an owl who hooted his way throughout the night - but didn't disturb us too much. The site is in close walking distance to Chirk and the castle entrance is next door. Warning, if you're planning on visiting the castle be prepared for a steep 3 mile trek from the castle gates, hard going in places! Also don't use SatNav as it takes you through the smallest of lanes and then told us to drive through the castle grounds which brought us out by the castle gates and the site entrance! Ideally you need to come into Chirk itself and then turn right at the war memorial. Can't comment on cleanliness of toilets/showers etc as they were all closed due to Covid. We had a lovely break and are looking forward to many more ;o))

First visit, very impressed

This our first visit to this site, only an hour from home for our first trip after lockdown. This is a lovely site with nicely spaced pitches amongst the trees. The bluebells were out which was a bonus! Very friendly, helpful staff. Facilities closed due to Covid. Beautiful area for walking, Chirk Castle grounds a were lovely with great views and there are lovely walks along the canals, aqueducts and river. Very happy to return here, loved it!

A lovely site with plenty of space

We stayed here for the first time on 27th Nov, the weather was cold and wet but that didn't stop the stay being great. The welcome was lovely and the pitch was was spacious, we backed right onto the woods which made for a great experience. We will be booking again as soon as we know what's happening next year with covid regs.
