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.

Struggling with the logic (or lack of it).

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
We've been to LM's several times & really enjoy the site & the surrounding area. However on our recent visit I struggled to understand the sites approach & logic being implemented under the guise of logic in relation to Covid. All the showers in the men's toilet block were locked, leaving only 2 showers in a separate annex to use, totally inadequate give the size of the site (which was packed). I understand it the same for the women. Wrist band system was evident however, it clearly didn't work as bands often on the pegs but the showers/toilets unoccupied (yes, this is down to the members). When the main services were being cleaned there was no toilet contingency for those 'emergencies' or desperate requirements. When asked why the disabled loo could not be used, Covid was blamed again. However, when I visited the shop to purchase a much needed Ice cream (weather very hot) my attempt to pay contactless was rebuked & an insistence of 'cash only' advised. Surprising seeing they try to portray an image of safety around Covid. Needless to say, the ice cream was returned to the fridge as currently I don't carry cash as I don't want to risk passing on any virus should I be unfortunate enough to come into contact with it. Seems like Covid safety is there when it suits them.

My first visit

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
This is a sheltered site about a half mile walk from the village and close to Chirk Castle estate. I noted an odd smell (like malt) when booking in and the warden advised me it was either the wood processing factory or the Cadbury’s chocolate factory. Be aware that the wood processing factory works 24/7 and the noise from it is like traffic roar from a motorway. We were in the middle of COVID-19 lockdown when I visited and members were struggling with the concept of rubber bands on hooks when you went in to the toilet blocks. Or they were deliberately ignoring it. I admired the patience of the motorhome driver who waited as I filled my tank with fresh water. It took an age with low pressure the culprit. The walks to town are pleasant but I’m afraid there are not many positive comments one can make about Chirk. The railway station is beautifully cared for by a volunteer group and the aqueduct and viaduct with canal tunnel make for an interesting walk. Try elsewhere for interesting destinations of which there are many. Planning permission is in for a major overhaul of this site.

What a beautiful site

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
We visited Chirk during a rare heatwave and how beautiful did the site look in bright sunshine, and the dappled shade given by the many tall trees was a welcome relief. The wardens are very welcoming and helpful, and keep a very tidy and pretty site. The very many bunnies hopping out from the woods help with maintaining the grassy areas. The pitches are very spacious and level. For the first time ever we had no need to use our levellers. The peace of the site is a little spoiled by the relentless 24 hour drone of the nearby Cadbury factory, plus the sweet smell that sometimes pervades the air, but if you can ‘tune out’ it isn’t a problem. The only other noise is human, ill-disciplined yapping/barking dogs (same as on all sites), crows, other birds, and owls. The facilities are a little dated, but clean and well maintained. The water pressure is dire and so showering was a lengthy process as was filling water containers. We found TV reception to be excellent. From time to time our mobile reception dropped out. The site is well placed to visit National Trust’s Chirk Castle - an uphill stroll through lovely grounds, with sheep roaming freely. Also within strolling distance is the Llangollen canal with its many canal boats. We loved our stay here, and will be back. For us, it was perfect, and seen in the most beautiful sunshine.

Disappointed

Lady Margaret's Park Caravan Club Site
This site is in desperate need of a refurbishment, the hard standing pitches are unrecognisable. I am fullly aware of the COVID guidelines and completely agree that some facilities have to be closed , but only 3 toilets, and 2 showers in the annex was definitely not enough for a full site, another 2 showers each end in the main block could have been used, we have stayed on smaller sites with more opened than here. I am also amazed at the lack of ground work that wasn’t done, only twice during our stay did we here any ground equipment being used, the staff seemed to spend most of their time in the office, and how some members were disregarding the band system, or just couldn’t get the hang of it was beyond me !!! Don’t think we will come again unless some changes are made.
