We approached the site from Conway and found the site easy to find. Access for our 4 berth unit was straightforward as the site has a wide, straight and what look to be a recently laid tarmac road right up to the house/reception.
The entire site, not just the CL area, was beautifully maintained. The owners obviously take great pride in making everything just right, not a thing out of place. Touches such as small planted areas around the base of each ornate onsite road light had flowering spring bulbs, a credit to the gardener and is just one example of the attention to details that this site has. The site is nice and peaceful as it's surrounded by open fields which look to be part of the farm.
We stayed on pitch no. 2 and luckily the planted bank behind the pitch shielded us from the worst of storm Doris. Even with a weekend of rain the site never had standing water anywhere. We managed to attract plenty of the local bird wild life to our feeder, despite the weather. Facilities were modern, warm and always clean and tidy. We never queued once for anything even though the five pitches were taken most of the three nights we stayed.
We managed a number of walks into Llanwrst and the well-lit site access road allows safe evening walking. We had lovely evening meals at the Eagle Hotel and Ty Asha Balti House and lunch at cafe Contessa. Shame the tea room over the bridge wasn’t open. The local Co-op and card shop came to our rescue, as there’s always something left at home.
Walked to Fairy Falls at Trefriw via the foot bridge over the river Conway and had a welcome stop for hot chocolate just as the rugby kicked off on the TV at the Fairy Falls Hotel. Then a little retail therapy at the wool mill shop. We were one of the few out walking in the wind and rain that day but it was worth the effort. Had a relaxed and expensive walk around the shops in Betws-y-coed, Thank god for the 15% club discount at Cotswold outdoor shop First time for Angelsey eggs at the Bistro.
Perfect stay and would highly recommend the CL site. We’ll be back.
