 A clean, tidy and well organised and carefully run site by experienced, pleasant owners.

Showers and toilets keep clean and tidy.

We noted a number of returning campers which speaks volumes of how well thought of the site must be.

Close location to the Llandegla Forest Facilities which can be walked to from the site.

 Great site. Facilities were always immaculately clean. I never had to queue for any of the facilities even though the site was busy over the bank holiday weekend.

There are a number of fields to choose from, so plenty of space between tents. Others have mentioned the road, but we didn't find it of any concern dispite selecting a site on that side of the field.

The owner, Christine, was very friendly and helpful - taking a genuine interest in people. Great community village shop and cafe within walking distance. Mountain biking centre is 2 mile away - great for cycling & walking.

 This is a great campsite. Located very close to the Llandegla Forest (which is brilliant for walking with the dog) and also Offa's Dyke Trail this was a great long weekend away over the hot late August Bank holiday.

Although the site was very busy, we never had to queue for the shower, even though there were only two of them.

Christine was very helpful on arrival and throughout our stay.

The pitches were mainly flat and there was loads of space between the other tents. Facilities were kept very clean at all times. Would recommend.

If you don't like road noise, then probably not for you - but it's not as bad as some reviews make out.

Really enjoyed the stay and we'll be returning.

 I took my 8 year old daughter for her first camping trip the weekend after Easter, alongside her friend and her dad. And she can't wait to go camping again!

Telephone booking with Christine was easy and entertaining. The site is easy to find, in a beautiful area, and with good, clean facilities. There were maybe six or seven other tents/caravans/motorhomes, but I didn't notice any queueing, except when seven kids arrived simultaneously to brush their teeth.

The stream running alongside the camping field was a magnet for the girls, and they spent much of their time down there with sticks and wellies and a length of string with a loop at the end! Dads also are not averse to a game of poo-sticks, and can be distracted for ages when looking for fish. Christine gathered all the kids and took them for a tour of the lambing sheds. The braziers kept us warm in the evenings, and EHU sped up the coffee-making in the morning. There's a pub just up the road, and a ten minute stroll will take you to the community shop in the village which apparently does a cooked breakfast too.

The noise from the adjacent road *is* quite disruptive at night. It leads to the Horseshoe Pass, which is popular with bikers, and quite a few drivers seemed to race along it too. On the second night, though, we were woken by owls calling in the trees across the stream, and that was wonderful.

We visited the Ponderosa Cafe at Horseshoe Pass for lunch, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct for sheer terror and a canalboat trip, Horseshoe Falls weir near Llangollen, where the Llangollen canal begins, and the walking trails at the Llandegla mountain-biking centre. All great.

All in all a very good weekend.

 Came here in August with a small group of friends for a quiet weekend away. It is in a beautiful corner of the world, right next to some really great walking trails and pubs!


Really well kept facilities, toilets, showers and washing up. All in excellent nick, well stocked and clean (with plenty of loo roll!), excepting one shower which had some gross litter in it (though, the showers were busy, so a negligent camper not owner).

The camping fields themselves, we were in the second one right at the back, were well trimmed and maintained, no litter and only a few scorch marks from firepits. There was plenty of flatspace for tents too.

10/10 for grass softness! Seems strange to note but we took our shoes off the entire time because it was so soft, which was lovely.

Christine is friendly and accommodating, and the firepits/wood were very affordable, as was the site! 7. 50 per night is more than reasonable and made our trip possible.

It felt fairly secluded but did have excellent phone signal, which is very useful.


Most of these were not the fault of the owner, just things to note about the campsite.

Especially if you are the far end or side of the campsite, it is very exposed to the wind. We actually had a pole snap because of how windy it was and had to leave early. Make sure you pitch properly and move your tent if you need to!

This wind also made the firepit tricky as they are the open type (instead of solid metal, it was spaced out bars). This meant the fire was difficult to control and shed a lot of ash and embers. If it's windy, maybe bring your own pit/a good windbreaker!

Also, there is road noise. We were warned about the cockerel across the road but didn't hear it at all, though I did notice the constant hum of the road next to the site. It isn't very loud but it is annoying.

All in all, a sweet site which is SO conveniently placed and priced! A few niggles in the location but that's what you get for being 20 mins from Wrexham and 300 yards from a pub!

On a side note, I'd 100% recommend the Llandegla national park around the corner, the walks are fantastic and easy to follow!

 Another lovely welcome from Christine and Louis to their great campsite. Clean toilet/shower facilities and no queues despite quite a few mid week campers. Plenty of space for everyone and quiet at night. Easy access from all directions.

Enjoyed a walk with the dog along Offa's Dyke from the campsite into Llandegla forest to the Visitor centre for lunch - took a couple of hours. Superb for mountain bikers of all abilities.

Local pub not open for food on Mon/Tues but it did great food last time we were there and is dog friendly.

Looking forward to our next visit.

 Stayed here for 1 night and was extremely pleased, we'd been working in Manchester so it was a beautiful nights sleep.

The owner Christine was so attentive and delt with things very well. A group of teenagers where been very noisy after 10pm and was soon told to keep it down. To our relief.

We had A chimanier & wood at 8 which was lovely.

All the facilities where clean and well kept.

We accidentally left our peg tents which Christine help with 'thankfully'

All in all I will Definitely be going back!

 We have just spent a wonderful 4 nights at this site. What a lovely campsite. Fantastic views. Lots of space. Good facilities.

Christine is the most friendly welcoming owner we have ever met and she goes out of her way to meet all the campers.

We will definitely be back soon.

 Stayed here twice now. Both times the camp-site was excellent and exactly what I needed. Booked here to ride at OPA LLandegla with #MTBmeetup. Good clean facilities, well maintained pitches, plenty of space, very friendly and always willing to help. Will definitely be back! Thanks again!

 Spent a wet but enjoyable weekend at this site with my adult son. Facilities clean plus the owners friendly and helpful. Site had plenty of room for young children to play. Local pub recommended - good choice of beers plus pool table and darts. The campsite is a good base for walking or a short drive to explore the area. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
