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.

Enjoyable Visit

Just a quick thank you to the wardens who couldn't of been more helpful. Just stayed for one night to test out our new motorhome to see that everything worked okay. It did including the Alde heating which I had on 3 and forgot and boiled our electric kettle which overloaded our electric supply. Warden came to our rescue almost as soon as I reported it and got us back on to power again. That's what I call service !!!!

Great site

We stayed with friends over new year, the lady warden could not have been more helpful even though she was so busy booking in so many. We had a great walk on the canal, lovely lunch in the old Chapel cafe. And in the evening a great new years eve dinner in the local pub. The showers were so clean and warm and the site was fully booked ,the standard was kept high

It remains a favourite.. but facilities need updating

As this is 45 minutes from home, it remains one of our most visited sites, as it’s location is fabulous. We enjoy the local walks on offer, along the canal, to the castle or into the village, we love the spacious pitches, and the local village, restaurant and pubs. It’s perfect for a lovely chilled break in beautiful surroundings. Great for couples or families who have children who like the outdoors. But the shower and toilet facilities are really due an upgrade now. They are clean but very old and could do with sprucing up to say the least. That said, you can still get a hot shower, so this won’t put us off visiting. But I don’t think that C&MC can justify any price increases until they have updated the facilities.

Lovely Site, but a few things need updating.

We stayed here for a few nights in early January. This was our 1st time at LM's and we really enjoyed our time. The wardens were friendly and booking in was easy. Chirk was a short walk along a path the runs alongside the site, in Chirk there's a decent sized Spar (7am-11pm) & a Coop . There are 2 pubs & 2 Cafes, one of the Cafes is on the walk to Chirk (but isn't dog friendly). Theres an Indian restaurant in Chirk which has got good reviews but we didn't visit. There is a chippy about a mile. The site is very close to the site is the Shropshire Union Canal which is a delight to walk along. Its a flat one hours walk along the Canal to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which is a World Heritage Site and a must see. On the other side of the Aqueduct is popular Cafe. In my title I said a few things need up dating, they are the facilities block which is warm and very clean is in desperate need of an update. The showers were hot but weren't that powerful, a man I spoke to said he's been visiting LM's for 25 years & the facility block hasn't changed a jot. Come on C&MC management get the block refurbished. Another issue is the TV reception which on our pitch was 99% perfect, but others on the site said they could only get BBC or ITV or neither. One man said that he couldn't get a signal through is roof top aerial or his sat dish. This is unacceptable and the Club should get TV hook up on the EHU bollards. Niggles aside we loved our time at Lady Margarets and will definitely return. One last thing there's little to do onsite for kids other than a small area for ball games, this didn't bother us at all.

Lady margarets

Stayed here 3 nights over New year 2019. Great location to Chirk, which is just on a mile away. Couple of pubs, Stanton arms , hands hotel and the bridge Inn is also walking distance but at the bottom of the hill. Nice little bistro castle tea rooms in chirk, we booked for new years eve. Good food and reasonably priced. Local super market. Short track from the site leads down to canal, head one way towards ellesmere (nice views over the viaduct) and the other to Llangollen. Great flat routes for nice walks or bike rides. Site itself was clean and tidy, toilets, showers and vanity sinks. Clean but just looked a bit basic and dated. Plenty of points on site for water, elsan and bins. Not much for kids, although quite a few where cycling on the grounds which is big enough to play. Only issue was the Cadburys/wood factories, can be quite noisy during sleep hours and views spoiled by pollution :-( Would come again though. Staff on site were great
