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.

Don’t stay here if you need the toilet block facilities!

We have just returned from this site. We had a great time BUT the shower block is a disgrace. The showers are tired and don’t work properly...the water pressure is almost nothing...it takes what seems like hours to shower. We tried going at different times but to no avail they are just not fit for purpose.. So we used our own facility..now I don’t mind this BUT why do we have to pay for amenities that are no use? Sites without shower blocks are much cheaper! I did talk to the wardens but they said they have complained and nothing has been done or is going to be in the near future. Therefore I suggest you either refurbish the facility’s or drop the price!

Potential For Fab Dog Walk!

There is a vastly underused rally field which considering the amount of people who have dogs could make very good use of. If maybe half or a third was adequately fenced off, with suitable amount of chicken wire to stop the lovely bunnies getting in and becoming easy prey, then it would be ace! Such sites supplying secure dog exercising areas, ie: Penhros, Anglesey & Englethwaite Hall are a god send. If more people requested such an area where it is obvious one could be accommodated, then I think everyone is a winner 👍

A place to go to relax.

A well kept and friendly site with excellent access to Wales and Chester. The toilet block needs some attention considering the popularity of this site.

In need of update to facilities

Lovely site spoiled by tired facilities. Come on Club, stop messing about with "our" Club name and spend some money on this, which could be a wonderful, site!! Fences falling to pieces, play facilities disappeared, Wardens do their best but upgrade sadly long promised failing to materialise. Only continuing popular due to location, soon we will be avoiding here in favour of other equally enjoyable sites.

Needs aminity facilities modernisation

Lovely spacious site with large pitches located 1 mile from Chirk at edge of grounds to Chirk castle (1 ½ miles from site). Staff very friendly and helpful, but amenities block in drastic need of improvement and modernisation. Not at all up to the usual high C&MC standard, some of the toilets are loose and the cistern hanging off the wall. Shower mixer thermostats corroded and erratic temperatures, three sinks for washing up in open area. Club really need to sort out the facilities especially considering the charges (£ 27. 50/night) and the popularity of this site! Plus side is the location. Cyclable canal towpath just outside will take you on an easy and enjoyable 8 ½ mile ride to Llangollen. The canal goes over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (not of those with a fear of heights!). Walking the canal in the opposite direction going over the Chirk Aqueduct will take you into England. Chirk castle (NT) and gardens and a must visit if staying on the site. Really nice peaceful location with lots to do and visit in the area, but come on C&MC sort out the sites amenity block.
