Why stay here ...

Lady Margaret's Park Club Campsite is undergoing some exciting extensive redevelopments and as a result will be closed earlier than usual from 31 October 2021. We're increasing and introducing new serviced and premium touring pitches, adding tent pitches, improving the onsite facilities and adding brand new glamping accommodation. If everything goes to plan we'll be able to reopen the campsite in August 2022 and look forward to welcoming visitors then. (Please note that the storage compound will remain open throughout, please contact the campsite directly with any queries).

In the meantime, you might like to try some alternative campsites nearby:

  • Chester Fairoaks 24 miles (North)

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.

Good adult site

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
Only stayed one night on route to other sites within Chirk/Ellesmere area. Found it very peaceful, with good facilities and reasonable site fees. Two short dog walking areas on site (not enough for our English Springer Spaniel) but going off site we ventured onto the canal towpath and walked through Chirk tunnel (good experience and one for the 'bucket list' being ticked off (having a couple years back navigated the tunnel on a narrowboat). Short walk into Chirk (downhill) once outside the site, just by Chirk Castle gates (which very impressive and the history of them). Extensive walk available through Chirk Castle grounds but if taking your dog, this has to be on lead, as sheep freely graze. Would definitely return to the site.

Quiet and easy to access

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
One of the better sites, particularly if you have dogs with several on site walks and loads of places to go literally at the gate including onto the grounds of Chirk Castle (NT Castle but grounds free to access). On site walks include 2 woodland walks but unlike some that get muddy or are too short to be called a walk, these are good with one having a well made bark chip path and the other which is longer and has a natural path but in a slope so drains well. The site itself is nicely laid out with 2 cul-de-sac areas under large pine trees and the main area split into two levels, semi circular and again has large trees between them. It doesn't feel crowded at all and there are loads of service points around the site so never too far to walk with the water/waste. Toilet block a little dated but ok (though we generally now use our own facilities so my comment is based on 1 visit). The access is very easy with no narrow roads to negotiate and you can be back on the main A5 or A483 roads within minutes. Apparently the site is due for an "upgrade" this winter/spring 2021/22 with tent pitches and glamping pods being added as well as toilet block improvements. Hopefully the peacefulness of the site won't be ruined by these changes as I'd hate it to become an overcrowded place which would be a complete contrast to the current feel. Would recommend and will return.

Beautiful location, peaceful and quiet.

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
Lovely quiet site, a little too quiet for us. Toilet block was "tired" and in need of a facelift, but clean. Plenty of nice walks nearby, and cycling along the canal towpath. Watch out for the rabbit holes!

Poor Facilities

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
Peaceful well maintained site with friendly wardens but let down by dated bathroom facilities with not enough showers for the number of pitches. Very poor shower water pressure which made trying to wash your hair interesting and only one hand dryer ! Good public transport links (bus & train) within walking distance and easy access to the Llangollen canal. Would return but hoping for a bathroom facilities upgrade in the very near future 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Very nice site shame about selfish dog owners

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
This site is very well maintained, toilet facilities very clean, Warden's very friendly and lts in a fantastic location. The downside is the selfish dog owners that let their dogs bark and yap constantly, I don't think five minutes went by without one dog or another barking this tended to start a crescendo of yapping dogs all around the site - not very relaxing. Why don't these selfish owners be responsible owners and shut their dogs up?
