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.

Will be coming back again.....and again.........and again

Okay,my wife and I are I have to say, "newbies" to the caravan club so we have only been to a small number of sites. However in the 2 years of touring with the caravan we have stayed here on a couple of occasions practising using the caravan and the facilities on the site. we have always been made welcome by the staff and the caravaners as well which has made this an enjoyable site to come to at all times of the year. The facilities are clean and tidy (showers and sinks etc) given the amount of use they are under, as regards to the updating from other reviews we have seen they are pretty much the same as the other sites we have seen so I'm not sure as to how much they should be updated? think I need to see the amazing facilities at the other sites to understand what the comments before are on about? anyway we were happy. Very quiet here too, didn't hear a thing at night (or day) at all. Only noise I could hear was the birds singing in the morning and a owl that decided to have a good hoot one night..and NO I'm not complaining. this was lovely. Please try the local shops in the village especially the local butchers, the meat is lovely especially on the BBQ, the hand hotel and the bistro are worth a visit in the village if you fancy someone else doing the cooking for you. Lots of nice walks everywhere especially down by the canal. ( very dog friendly as well) Back here again in May and I can't wait. Thank you for everything.

Peaceful site

Stayed for one night. Peaceful, quiet site in wooded area. Facilities dated but clean. Showers powerful and hot. Charge for Wi-fi so we didn't bother with that. Approximately 15 minutes walk into Chirk. Useful information hut with leaflets and brochures on tourist attractions and other caravan club sites and services

Maisie (9 month old Border Collie) first trip in motorhome

We decided to go to Lady Margaret's Park because it was close to home as a first time out in the motorhome for our 9 month old border collie although she was travelling with an experienced senior border collie and even more senior little german spitz. Although reasonably obedient at home I wasn't sure how she would react to strange surroundings and sleeping with us so Lady Margaret's Park being only 30 or so miles away from home seemed ideal. The write ups were pretty good too although we only use them as a guide. We really loved this site. It was really busy because of the excellent February weather but despite this it was still peaceful. It is the sort of site where you can walk into town, visit Chirk Castle and the viaduct all within walking or for those from further afar there is plenty to do. I needed to rate this site at 4.5 because there isn't a children's play area. Now as we are retired it doesn't matter to us but we have grandchildren and so we look at it from their point of view. Having said that there was plenty of space in and around the pitches and Im sure many families will be quite happy without the play area. I think this is a site we will go back to again being on the doorstep as we can just go whenever the fancy takes us (subject to pitches being available of course). And Maisie, well she loved it, all the new sniffs and those rabbits as she has never seen a rabbit before we don't see them across the fields we walk at home.

Great little site.

Just returned having spent a lovely week on the site, I agree with other reviews that the Shower block does need a refurb as it is looking a little tired. Also the question needs asking why do the Club insist on using very small cisterns in the WCs as they do not do the job and one needs to refill the cistern a second time, if it is to save water it is in fact wasting water. Having been to this site on many occasions we will not be returning due to the continual fan noises from the nearby factories and when I say continual I mean 24/7 not sure if the factory have had new extractors fans fitted or new plant installed but the noise can be heard inside the van at all times day and night. We also spoke to a local person who has told us that the factory concerned has applied to increase production and intern that will mean an increase of 30% in large vehicles accessing the factory. What a shame a lovely site ruined by an outside source.

Best Winter site

Love going to Lady Margaret's in the Winter. Access is very good whatever the weather. Yes, some people say the site is dated and in disrepair but it's still a great site, very spacious and lovely walks from from your doorstep. Chirk Castle and the canal are close by, as are a few handy shops and cafes an easy walk.
