 Charming tranquil site in a splendid location.

Close to castle, canal, town and gorgeous walks along Ceiriog valley. Spotless facilities.

Range of pitches in shady glades or more open.

Will definitely return.

 Not as big as many club sites so it feels more relaxed. All pitches surround central facilities block. Adjacent to Chirk castle grounds although it's 1. 4 miles from the castle itself.

Short walk to Chirk centre with its small but varied choice of shops, cafes, takeaways etc. Nice walk to aquaduct /viaduct canal/railway and station (trains to Wrexham or Shrewsbury).

Unfortunately site is suffering from major drainage problem so all service points for waste water and chemical disposal are closed and all such waste has to be emptied at the facilities block which could be a bit if a trek from some pitches.

Also as still in Covid precautions, there can be a queue for toilets and showers, so use of own facilities is encouraged.

 Lovely site adjacent to Chirk castle & parkland. Ideal for dog walkers.

Friendly & helpful wardens. Amenities block rather dated but always spotlessly clean & water hot.

Short walk into small town of Chirk. Aquaduct, canal & viaduct close by. Lots to do in area.

No hesitation in recommending.

Reviewer: Macarw 19 reviews from this member

 This site is strict about check in times, but if you are travelling from the south there is a good stop less than half an hour away on the M5 called the Montford Bridge picnic area - easy to park, a cafe serving really nice food, a dog walk and toilets (portaloos unfortunately). We travelled early to avoid traffic and stopped there for a late breakfast.

The site itself is well signposted and is in a lovely area very close to the canal and to Chirk castle. (National Trust).

We were allowed to choose our pitch and then were given a key fob for the barrier. The pitches are mostly flat and spacious and a reasonably far apart in a lovely woodland setting. Take care when walking on the grass thought - there are lots of rabbit holes!

The toilet facilities although clean, warm and had everything needed, showers, toilets, sinks with privacy cubicles and a plug socket for using hairdryers, straighteners etc they are in need of modernisation and it's definitely what lets the site down. On the first day I used the shower that was adapted for disabled use as all the others were in use and the pressure was really poor.

The other showers were adjustable and are not the push button sort so stay on for the duration of your shower, but they have shower curtains, and the floor gets very wet so there is nowhere dry to get dressed. There are plenty of hooks for clothing and a plastic stool in the cubicle. They were clean but didn't smell very fresh. I think they are just old and well used. There were 2 blocks in the same area, and when one block was being cleaned the other remained open which was handy.

There is a little shop at reception, but rather than essentials it mostly sells things like ice creams (We wanted some bread to make a sandwich when we first arrived and had to drive out to the nearby Co-op). It's about a 20 min walk into Chirk to the nearest shop if you don't want to drive.

Dogs are welcome and it's doggie heaven with rabbits and squirrels all around and a lovely walk down to the canal. There is also a dog walking field.

If you have younger children there is no play area for them, there used to be a small trim trail type play area but it seems to have fallen apart.

It is a lovely well kept site and we will definitely return (this is our third visit) it's just let down a little by the old toilet block.

Reviewer: Chromedome73 1 review from this member

 We arrived on Friday 5th July & immediately got the feel that it was an Adult Only site, although its not.

There is no children's play area.

We took our dog with us (its only his 3rd time away in the caravan) and we also met up with some friends also on site, they have two dogs, who ours has never met.

About 7:30pm our dog was barking & we were trying to calm him down, when all of a sudden a man appeared & said " Is that doing your head in? 'cause its doing my head in!"

We all looked at each other when he casually let us know he was the Warden. !?

What this 'warden' needs is training in customer relations, what an absolute ignoramus.

There are ways & means to engage conversation with paying customers.

This left a unmistakable bad taste to the start of my birthday w/end (7th)

On a slightly more positive note, Chirk castle is wonderful & the walks along the canal are very scenic, although this has nothing to do with the site.

We are first time caravan owners & this has really made me think twice about rejoining the Caravan & Motorhome Club.

I hope this gets picked up on & mentioned to the relevant people

 We used the site as a base to see some of North Wales. A lovely quiet site set within easy walking distance of Chirk.

Easy to walk to the aquaduct as well. Site is slightly older, but well laid out and the toilet block although tired, is spotless.

Mix of open and under trees, so you have a choice if the sites not too full.

Reviewer: Paul@Bank 134 reviews from this member

 Lovely spacious site with large pitches located 1 mile from Chirk at edge of grounds to Chirk castle (1 miles from site). Staff very friendly and helpful, but amenities block in drastic need of improvement and modernisation. Not at all up to the usual high C&MC standard, some of the toilets are loose and the cistern hanging off the wall. Shower mixer thermostats corroded and erratic temperatures, three sinks for washing up in open area. Club really need to sort out the facilities especially considering the charges ( 27. 50/night) and the popularity of this site!

Plus side is the location. Cyclable canal towpath just outside will take you on an easy and enjoyable 8 mile ride to Llangollen. The canal goes over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (not of those with a fear of heights!). Walking the canal in the opposite direction going over the Chirk Aqueduct will take you into England. Chirk castle (NT) and gardens and a must visit if staying on the site.

Really nice peaceful location with lots to do and visit in the area, but come on C&MC sort out the sites amenity block.

Reviewer: Valvelifter 10 reviews from this member

 A real gem of a site, very well maintained with clean toilets and showers. Very quiet and well situated with lots of superb walks close by and many more a short car ride away. We could occasionally smell the large chocolate factory about half a mile away if the wind was in the right direction but not an unpleasant smell unless you hate chocolate.

We had very quiet, undisturbed nights sleep.

The castle Bistro is about 20 minutes walk away and serves very good food with a wide menu. The Hand hotel, a few doors away, also has a good menu but we did not try it.

Reviewer: Greg M 39 reviews from this member

 We stopped off here on the way back down from Scotland and decided to have two nights.

The site is quite spread out with one amenities block in the centre with various water and waste areas around the site.

The motorhome service point is easily missed and would require a trip around the site and back through the entrance barrier.

The amenities block is far from modern but was very clean.

The shower water pressure could be better.

If you are after a good TV signal the pitches nearing the exit barrier are apparently the best (we were in one and had good reception). Mobile phone reception was also good.

The town of Chirk is a half mile walk into the town.

Even for January I have never seen so many rabbits in one area there seemed to be hundreds.

The staff were very pleasant and all was explained on arrival.

Would we return, probably yes.
