Top of the world

Returning for our second visit and you never get bored of the stunning scenery and peaceful surroundings. Easy to find along a typically narrow Anglesey road with easy access onto the field, there are two fields here, one exclusively for us CMC members, each well maintained grass pitch benefits from EHU your own personal fresh water tap and grey waste drainage, basically a super pitch, then the adjoining field which can accommodate up to 10 units for none club members or overflow separated by a 4ft high wire fence in an L shape affair, the field has a slight slope but John is always on hand on arrival to help you pitch up with blocks provided, John and his wife work hard to ensure your welcome and stay is bob on. Toilet and shower facilities & a fully equipped games room in an old barn are available to guests however we use our own caravan facilities but John ensures they are kept clean daily. There’s a large adjacent field to exercise the pooch on & a paddock with horses so bring a carrot or two. This site is exposed to the elements so if your bringing the awning bring your storm ties but the pay off is the most incredible feeling of being on top of the world, 360o views from Snowdonia to the Irish Sea with the incredible breathtaking Anglesey countryside in between, at one point I could hear nothing but the wind in my ears and the sound of nature. Fully recommend this dog friendly site to families or couples, johns dog Jess often roams about the vans, slightly deaf and blind but simply too cute not to give a good hug & a doggy great to. If you have never been to Anglesey, come, it’s simply stunning with its own micro climate, incredible beaches and unspoilt coves, great dining experiences and pubs, Beaumaris and Red Wharf Bay is not too far and a great day out. Whether your into chilling with a good book and a bottle of something naughty or an active holiday with water sports galore, Anglesey has something for everyone. Enjoy!

Very friensly Site, beautiful surroundings.

Firstly, can I begin by saying when we arrived the weather was awful, and the site was waiting for the arrival of Tropical storm Ernesto, on our arrival we were met by John, what a lovely fella, duly showed us to our pitch and showed us were the facilities were.although it was blowing a gale with horizontal rain. it was windy during the two nights stay mainly due to the storm but we did have a few dry spells to appreciate the views and the site. very nice showers and toilets. the site is made up of a cl with a small stand alone campsite which having spoke to other vanners here, they were regular visitors and I cant fault them I would too if we didn't live 4 hrs away. they are dog friendly and fairly relaxed about dogs, and they had a lovely dog jess who is almost blind and roams the site making friends with everyone. although please exercise some common sense. horses in the paddock to one side and cows in the field on the other. next visit to Angelsey this is a definite revisit. and hopefully find some better weather next time.

What a gem

I booked this site about 9 months in advance, and was very glad I did, as its very popular, and books up really quickly. This site is amazing, with lovely spacious pitches, each with their own tap, and waste water drain. John (owner) helped with pitching the caravan, as the site is on a bit of a slope. Each pitch has its own leveling block ready for you to use, so very easy to get the van level. The views are totally amazing, and you may just find that you don't want to leave the site, but just chill and take in the views. The whole of Anglesey is within very easy reach. The local village is only about 1.5miles away and has a small shop for basic provisions, with a big Morrisons and Tesco in Holyhead if you want to do a big shop. The toilets and showers were lovely and clean, although the floors do slope the wrong way, so you do need to spend a few mins mopping up afterwards, but that's no big deal. The showers were £1 which I thought was very reasonable, considering that would last for at least 20 mins. There's also another separate toilet. There was also a very useful washing machine and freezer. A games room, with free wi-fi was a useful addition, and seemed to be very well used. I did see a review, which said it was dark in the games room, simple answer, put the lights on. If you have family wanting to visit the area at the same time, but don't want them, or have room for them in your van, then there's a simple answer. Sarah does B&B in the farmhouse, and there's a beautiful static avail for hire (not on CL site, but by the house), the static is a very competitive price, and we are even thinking of using it the next time we visit, instead of dragging the van up from Kent. The lanes were a bit narrow, but what else would you expect. You can't have a lovely peaceful site, with beautiful views with a main road running along side, so Yes some of the lanes are narrow, but if you follow the instructions, then you shouldn't have a problem.

This is not a CL.

This site advertises as a CL. But it does not conform to the accepted definition of a CL ...a quiet 5 caravan site offering a very different experience from that provided by larger sites. It claims that the facilities are for the exclusive use of the CL users but in fact they are used by the 10 pitches in the site adjacent to the supposed CL site. So if you are looking for a quiet CL tucked away, and by virtue of those facts preferred to a larger site, this is not the site for you. A reviewer back in 2014 made the same point. The facilities are acceptable but the shower floor seems to have subsided as the water runs everywhere. And £1 a shower is exhorbitant. Our showers averaged 25 p each. The games room is uninviting, dark and gloomy. The setting is glorious with lovely views but exposed and windy. Access from the south involves narrow roads and potentially difficult passing with a large van. Much is made by other reviewers of the footballing dog. We found him a nuisance, barking incessantly for someone to play with him. All in all disappointing experience in that we thought we were going to a CL and found the site something else entirely.

Our favourite CL by a mile

This was our 3rd visit to Myndydd Mwyn Mawr staying for a week at the end of May. The site is well cared for by John and Sarah with superb facilities normally found on a Club site. There are 3 toilets, 2 of which have showers, and a washing up room with hot and cold water and a washing machine. Next to these is a games room situated on the upper floor of a barn. This has free Wi-Fi access, pool table, table tennis table, TV and games. We used this quite a lot on our stay. The site slopes slightly down towards the game room but blocks are available. Each pitch has it's own water tap and grey waste drain. With the site being quite high, the views are superb - Snowdonia and Rhosneigr both visible on clear days. John will quite happily site and level your van for you with his Land Rover while Moss the dog watches from the passenger seat. Entertainment comes in the form of Jess the dog who wanders up to the site and loves playing football with kids. The CL is ideally located for exploring the island. Llangefni, Trearddur Bay and Holyhead all 10 to 15 minutes drive away. The nearest village is Llannerch-y-medd is 1.5 miles down the road and has a McColls shop, pub and chip shop. We're can't wait to revisit next year.

First visit to Mynydd Mwyn Mawr

Our first visit here, we are confident we'll return when on the island again. A very peaceful site. Very central for the island 'though not in walking distance of attractions. A panoramic view in all directions. Access is OK using directions provided, 'though as many places here the minor roads are very narrow with poor visibility on so do take care. All the services and amenities are well cared for and very clean. I'm happy to endorse the positive reviews from other visitors and recommend this site.

First Trip, will be back

This was our first trip to Anglesey and our first CL. My wife was a bit concerned as we have only done big sites before. After this visit we are CL converts. Simply stunning location, a bit breezy but that is what you get if you want panoramic views. Showers are £1 but you get plenty of water and facilities are nice and clean We were a bit concerned about not being near the beach but nothing is far on Anglesey and in the morning we just decided if we were going N,E, S or W so actually a really good location. The Games room was a bonus for our girls (9 and 11) who rate this as their favourite site. Loved seeing the horses in the paddock opposite all day long, very friendly with lots of stroking opportunities. John is really friendly and took the time to give us some great hints on places to visit. Unfortunately did not get chance to meet Sarah on this visit. No doubt we will see her on our next visit, we will be back. Very laid back atmosphere and everyone on the site was lovely including the folks who came to help with our awning when they could see we were struggling a bit. Much more friendly than on the big sites. Thanks to John, Sarah and our fellow campers this is our favourite break yet

Top Class

Having just returned from having 4days here Oct 2014, hand on heart this CL is perfect! We had a lovely warm welcome from Mr & Mrs Astley, offered help in pitching, explained where everything was, points of interest on the island in a relaxed and warm manner. There are approx 15 super Pitch Points with 16amp electric, own water tap and grey waste disposal covering two fields for you to choose from, the site is very well maintained each pitch affording excellent vistas across Anglesey, there are two modern bathrooms each with shower, sink and toilet, well kept, stocked and maintained, the shower is a snip at £1 loads of hot water. There is a small barn for you to enjoy complete with games, pool table, pinball table, TV, freezer & stereo free to use. The site has easy access, very slight slope but Mr Astley helped with levelling blocks for us, large bins inc recycle and central for all of the island to explore, Jess the dog came to visit us and play with our dog numerous occasions and she a an absolute joy. Fully recommend you pay this site a visit, peace and tranquility, views to die for and a friendly warm experience, didn't want to leave, definitely come back, if you are thinking of starting a CL, come here and see how it's done! Thank you Mr & Mrs Astley and Lola misses Jess xx

Wonderful!

We are regular visitors to Anglesey but this was our first stay on a CL there. It is set in a beautiful, central part of the island with views of Snowdonia, the coast, part of Holyhead mountain and Parys Mountain. It is an open site and we were there during a wild, windy week but this was not a problem. We saw some amazing sunsets and have the photos to remind us of how good they were. The owners were very welcoming and very friendly and so was their lovely dog and this helped make the holiday so enjoyable! We had all the facilities that we needed and more with the games room which entertained our teenage children. We loved our stay there and will definitely return.

Wow!!!!! But...

Breathtakingly spectacular views: the mountains, the sea and local countryside form the 360 degree stunning views with wonderful sunsets too. Anglesey is fantastic (free parking at most beaches). Too many CLs are enclosed and feel claustrophobic – this is the complete opposite!  John and Sarah are wonderful hosts, with daily visits to check everyone is alright and not in need of anything whilst also respecting your privacy. He happily helps to set up and level vans on arrival, comes to say goodbye and thank you for your custom on departure: also a caravanner himself. He allows his friendly and clearly well-trained dog, Jess, to roam freely on site, she loves kids and will play ball with them for hours.  However, we booked and expected to be on a CL. On arrival there were already 5 vans on site and earlier on this year a “paddock” area “overflow” had been created adjacent to the CL in an L shape. It is in full view with just a wooden fence separating the two with the facilities and site entrance shared. I fully appreciate that this has become a popular site not only due to the aforementioned views and hosting but also because of the well-kept toilets, showers (£1 a time and gave plenty of time for a good, warm shower) and large games room available (with pool table, table football, PlayStation, table tennis, books/magazines, sofa, and space for younger children to play). The site is very neat and tidy. There are also a couple of picnic tables available too along with water to every pitch and grey waste available on some as well. The CDP is neatly fenced off with a tap for rinsing out.  But this site is simply too big and really ought not to be advertised as a CL as there were frequently more than 5 vans on the CL section during our stay of 18 nights (the most being 9 units on the CL at one point). John and Sarah are in danger of spoiling what they have. We came wanting a relaxing and peaceful rest away from everything and chose a 5 van site because we work intensely with people all day everyday and want/need the break from being around too many others. Instead we suffered from the busyness of so many vans on site with all the associated noises from people and pets along with disturbances of comings and goings. At one stage there were 13 vans across the whole site and still had EHU and water points available for even more vans!  With the small pitch size (as per water tap allocation), proximity of vans, a large tent, and blocked views (we had 4 vans lined up in a row in front of us at one point!) at times this made for a very claustrophobic stay, and our holiday wasn’t all what we had hoped.  I guess the proof of the pudding for a site is whether or not you would return and we genuinely have mixed feelings about this. It wasn’t the peaceful relaxing location we had hoped, but the location, views and many other things most certainly were.
