Great 10 days exploring Anglesey

We enjoyed our 10 day stay on Anglesey at the end of August/beginning of September. The entrance to the site is a narrow single lane only, with No arrivals before 1300hrs rigidly applied due to the access width and to reduce the risk of encountering caravans which are leaving as you are arriving. Those that choose to ignore the 1300hrs arrival time, and then have problems, only have themselves to blame, particularly when there are plenty of large lay-bys on the main road approaching to and from Benllech. Overall the site is clean, and well organised with service areas including water, bins, recycling and chemical disposal. There is only one toilet/amenities block, which is getting dated, but is kept immaculately clean. I am not sure how the A special mention to the staff who were all cheerful, polite and helpful. We chose a hard standing pitch around a cul-de-sac loop. We enjoyed walking directly from the site, along the green lane and then exploring along various footpath routes. When we were visiting the weather was a mixed bag of wet and windy, interspersed with sunny periods. We looked at the weather forecast and often found travelling a few miles provided nicer days out, including watching red squirrels in the Forest, and sandy walks along the beach at Red Wharf Bay and Rhosneigr.

Fantastic site for families

We stayed here for the first part of our family holiday in July. The site staff were fantastic and the site is well laid out. We chose a pitch near the playing field so that our children could have easy access. This was a risk due to noise but the site fell quite between 9 and 10 every-night. The toilet block, although old, was in a very good state and was always clean with plenty of hot water. I was concerned after reading a number of reviews about the facilities but They were unfounded in my opinion. We did have one issue. When we arrived we had an issue with the fact that a previous tenant of the pitch had let their dog pee all over the hardstanding where the awning was set-up. This cause a horrid stink inside the awning. I mentioned this to the site staff who advised a course of action and were very apologetic. After spreading over 200 ltrs of water on the site, the smell eventually began to subside. Not great ecologically but it was the only solution. Owners please don't let your dog pee on the hardstanding!

Looking dated

Spent a week here after the Bank Holiday. We were last here in 2009 and been here another 5 times over the years. Since our last visit, serviced pitches have been introduced but why couldn't they have been made level at the construction stage? Whilst all facilities seemed OK, the toilet blocks are looking tired with some mould in the showers and rusty pipework - urgently in need of an update. My wife commented that the showers had irregular water temperature but the gents' facilities were OK. Whilst there's nothing the club can do about traffic, members should be prepared for delays when crossing the bridges to get on and off the island. We weren't there at a peak period but it was very frustrating when planning day trips on the mainland.

Enjoyable stay

We only stayed here for one night, but it was easy to find & in a great location to explore Anglesey. Only comment we would have was the Motorhome service point was not very accessible especially for larger motorhomes.

Lovely site and friendly wardens

Had a lovely 10 night stay with our 6 month old and two year old infants and dog recently. Site is very well kept by the wardens , beautiful flowers and herb garden. Wardens very friendly some of the nicest we have come across, pitches were well looked after mown each day and weeded. excellent secure play park for our two year old with a large grassy area to play . The dog run/ field is also great with mown paths and secure fencing. The toilet block does need updating. However the showers are clean and very powerful/ hot. Site well Placed for some lovely beaches. Some great historic ruins also nearby that are well worth a visit !

First Visit To Penrhos and loved it!

This was our first stay on Anglesey and we really enjoyed our stay. The Site was ideally located for our plan to walk the coast path and we did not have to travel far in order to reach the coast. Lovely sea views, people friendly. We particularly enjoyed our frequent visits to Bradley's Cafe in Benllech, especially the bacon rolls and cakes. Also, we had a lovely meal at the Boat House in Redwarf Bay. The site is fairly quiet although be aware of the static caravan site adjacent to this site as it does get a bit noisy at times. We moved pitch after one night and this was no problem for the Wardens, but be mindful of the new hard stands as they haven't settled yet so pegs came out quite easily. The only downside was the toilet/shower block which is very dated and in need of refurbishment although it was kept very clean by the wardens. We plan to return in October to carry on with the coast path walk.

Lovely, As ALWAYS

After several visits to this lovely site we can still say that it is our absolute favourite. I am surprised that the facilities have been criticised as we have always found them to be perfectly satisfactory & kept very clean. The wardens work extremely hard to keep the site up to standard & we love their new "boat herb garden". The site is always so peaceful - even when it is busy - and it is a perfect retreat for us. So thank you wardens & the club.

The site that was forgotten

Having visited this area a number of times in the past always staying on Cae Mawr, we thought on this occasion we would take advantage of this site having a shower block and stay here. How disappointing, from the delayed arrival time of 13:00 for no apparent reason, to the general tiredness of the whole site, a shop that ISN’T open ‘all day’ to the far from usable Motorhome service point and only one chemical closet emptying point. We stayed for 5 nights and only saw one of the four wardens doing a ‘walk round’ at 9am and 5pm. Whilst very old the toilet block was kept very clean, but the rest of the site was neglected, our hard standing pitch had tufts of grass growing all over it, the 5mph signs on the road had all but disappeared and the sleeping policeman on the entrance road didn’t stand out due to the painted chevrons having worn off. Overall, in comparison to lots of our sites, this one is badly neglected and we will be back to Cae Mawr next time we visit Anglesey.

Great Site

This is the second time we have been to this site,the last time five years ago.Now there are some serviced pitches and the high grassy area has been turned into hard standings.The showers are a bit dated ,but in very good condition and impeccably clean..Actually the shower heads are away from the wall over your head so for me being a six footer ,this is ideal.Water pressure was great too.In the more modern shower blocks the shower head is fixed to the wall and normally too low.For me washing my hair runs the risk of touching the hot pipes. The wardens were excellent and helpful. The arrival time is 1pm but this is because the driveway is quite narrow. We got there for 12.30 not knowing this and met a caravan coming out having been turned away.But we went to turn around and were let in.Good timing i guess. Overall a lovely site and well placed for exploring the island. There is a Coop and Tesco express in Benllech only ten minutes away.And in LLangefni -only ten minutes in the other direction ,is a Lidl,Aldi and Asda. We had visitors staying in our awning (only £7.50 pp a night) and had bought a new airbed.Then found out our pump was inadeqaute.Not knowing there were pumps in Asda ,we went to The Range in Bangor,but were still there and back in under an hour. We travelled from Southport,Formby Bypass,Gateway Bridge (no charge for Caravans) M56 and A55.The only slight holdup was the Britannia bridge which is more or less the only single lane road on the whole journey. So much to see there,i think we will be making Penrhos an annual visit!
