Nice campsite very clean and kept well staff work hard grounds are spotless and the place is nice and peaceful.

Bad points a very very few but mainly the wifi is absolutely useless and 2. 50 per day this may seem trivial but when in an area of absolute nothingness wifi is essential once the rains start and they will

Stayed at the site in June when going on a visit to Bangor University, which was less than 30 minutes drive away. Site was tidy and reasonably well laid out with a toilet block to the usual Caravan Club standards. Hardstandings appeared fairly level. We were on a grass pitch which needed a ramp on one side to level. However, the view from the pitch was excellent, if a little windy. The play area, with assorted equipment including a basketball hoop and a football goal was of a good size, allowing a few excellent matches with the family. Wardens friendly, with some food and supplies available at reception. Information room was helpful.

Visited Penrhos as our first visit to a Caravan Club site, we found the site friendly, well kept, warm clean showers etc. The facilities are great, but you really need to drive for pub or shop, quiet a way from the village and beach.

The children's play area looked great was enclosed and next to sheep field which may prove of interest.

Our first outing of the year and with new caravan. Arrived as site opened for the season so plenty of pitches to choose from though as we left six days later it was clearly filling up with Easter holidays nearing and some schools have broken up. Yes, the toilet block is a little dated by current trends for CC decor, but it was perfectly fine - always warm, clean, plenty of hot water. Friendly wardens. Only gripe was an overnight break in the wifi service which we have come to rely on so much these days for researching places to visit, banking, keeping in touch, and the like.

We have visited Anglesey briefly in the past as we have friends who relocated many years ago, but this is our first with the caravan and hopefully not the last. The peace, scenery and tranquillity is reminiscent of parts of Scotland. Enjoyed quaint Moelfre very much which is quite close by (good lunch at Ann's Pantry), and had a trip out to the lighthouse at South Stack. Llangefni is 15 minutes away with good supermarkets. Will bring the bikes next time.

This trip was at the end of September in our Dandy trailer tent, as it was the end of the season the staff at the park let us pick any pitch we wanted. After pitching the dandy we went on to the dedicated dog walking field, which was brilliant, a large field fully enclosed with a self closing gate.

The dogs loved it and it was away from all the caravans.

The toilet block was a little dated but spotless and again loads of hot water (showers were free). The site had everything you need and is close to a brilliant beach, we will be returning here again and again!

We spent 5 nights here, and we stayed during a heat wave, needless to say we had a lovely time with our dogs. It is a Caravan Club site, and was up to the usual standards. All the grass and plantings are well maintained, and the majority of the hard standings appear level, ours (pitch 21) was spot on. Service at reception is very good, and all the wardens were pleasant and helpful. There is an 'information' shed, packed to the gunnels with 'places to visit/eat' etc, which was very helpful.

The shower blocks are not new, but are clean and adequate. During our stay the site was occupied near to capacity but neither of us had to wait for a shower. There are several toilets and urinals, and a nice touch is 4/5 private access cubicles (with curtains), where you can wash in peace. The chemical disposal point is next to the blocks, as is grey water disposal, and the only fresh water supply on a large site that is easy to use, I will explain. This tap, is a normal twist for water tap, and can accommodate the the filling hose that comes with an aqua roll or equivalent. All the others on site, are push to activate and you get water for about 10 seconds before you have to press again. The worst thing, is the water outlets on the taps are triangular, so you have to hold your hose in place and keep pressing the button, so although the taps are meant to save water, it sprays everywhere and you get wet through. If you are visiting bring a length of about 8 inches of inch and a half plastic tubing, and you will be fine. Our other grumble is the state of the track onto site from the road, it is like a war zone of quite deep potholes. On site there is a nice large secure dog exercise field, with two poop bins with shovels.

It is our second caravan visit to Anglesey, two years ago we stayed at Cae Mawr, just down the road, so we now know our way around the Island. If you like sandy beaches, we found superb clean beaches at Ligwy (2 1/2 miles away), Benllech (not dog friendly), Rhoscolyn, and numerous around Trearddur Bay (on the main beach, dogs are only allowed on one half of it, but within walking distance from it there are many sandy bays, well off the road, where dogs can swim and play).

There are also some outstandingly beautiful places to visit, all involve a drive, but they are worth it. Our favorites are South Stack, Parys Mountain (abandoned copper mine, steep in parts, and it's like a moonscape!), Red Wharf Bay, Moelfry and Amlwch. We would seriously consider this site if we came to Anglesey again, but we hope to discover new places.

Entrance to the site is on the straight part of an 's' bend, so beware when you are near to site. The site it self is in 2 parts the first part is just after the wardens office all hard standing, if you have a sat dish you will need to keep to the entrance end of this field to get a signal as it has large trees all round. This is where the motor home service point is. The other field is larger and has grass pitches as well as hard standing. Usual toilet block as per caravan club. A dog walk is next to the site entrance this is a large fenced field. Morning papers can be ordered from the site office.

This is a nice caravan club site with both hardstanding and grassy pitches.

Some of the pitches are on a grassy slope and look very precarious! Levelling blocks are a must for these. There are some high trees which do tend to block the evening sun and can leave some pitches in the shade long before the sun sets. The toilet block requires a key which I forgot to take on every occasion. It was always spotless and warm when I eventually got in though.

The only problem I had with this site is the ridiculous taps that have been installed to provide fresh water. They are of the push button type with a square spout which nothing will fit on to. When the button is pressed the water sprays all over the place, everywhere except into the water hog! You have been warned!

The children's play area is a tiny slide in a giant circle of bark.

Spent 4 nights here. The site is easy to find on the B5110 from Benllech. Follow the Caravan Club directions. The site entrance road is a little tight for large units.

Reasonable amount of parking near reception. It was a weekend and the Club website said it was full, but when we phoned up they had a few pitches available. Friendly reception.

As we were one of the last on site, we did not have many pitches to chose from and ended up on 55 next to the toilet block. Both hard standing and grass pitches on site.

Most pitches are a good size and well maintained. Our only problem was that we lost the sun after 16. Oo and had to watch many other plots basking in the evening sunshine!

The toilet block was fine, if a little dated. Still not sure why sites use a key for the toilet block.

Good dog walk near the site entrance.

We did find the plot smelly quite often. Not from the toilet block, but from the septic tanks nearby. Quite horrible sometimes. Other people on the site said it was often like that. Not nice.

Plenty to see on Anglesey - Beaumaris, Menai, Penmon, Bull Bay, Cemaes Bay, South Stack etc etc. Make sure you go for a pint at the Ship Inn at Red Wharf Bay. Great ales and fine food overlooking the sea.

Overall an enjoyable time and we will return - just hope the nasty niff is not there!

Very good site as with all c/c sites, good size hard standings etc. Wifi almost finished.

Main concern is the toilet blocks are starting to look tired now and a few problems with the Elsan point blocking up (sure it did the same on our last visit two years ago)

If you want TV the reception, at least on the lower pitches is poor.

The kids seem to love the site but made me cringe a few times speeding down the hill on their bikes or scooters onto the gravel, but thankfully no accidents while we there.

Good base for the many attractions on the island.

Good selection of wild birds so put your feeders up.
