- A serene site with beautiful views of the Clwydian Hills
- Easy reach of the beaches, heritage and hikes in the area
- Great on-site facilities, within a short drive of nearby towns
Care for a chilled-out break a quick drive from the coastline and within easy reach of the castles and heritage of north Wales? Settle yourself at Caer Mynydd Caravan Park, a serene site near the hamlet of Saron and with cracking views towards the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the Clwydian Hills.
If you’re planning to stay on site, there’s a play area for the kids to make friends at while you sit back and relax, but Caer Mynydd is also within easy reach of the beaches, heritage and hikes of this part of north Wales, with the Denbigh moors and Llyn Brenig reservoir close to hand and Snowdonia National Park within an hour’s drive.
The essentials are well looked after, with a centrally heated utility building with loos and showers, a private wetroom for disabled guests and a food shop to pick up essentials for the campfire. More provisions are available at nearby Denbigh and Ruthin, and there’s a pub in the village of Cyffylliog three miles away.
Firepits are allowed on site for responsible folk: please dispose of all residue correctly and leave the area clean and tidy.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A55 turn for St Asaph and head for Denbigh. At the large roundabout, take the second exit towards Ruthin and after half a mile you will come to another roundabout. Take the exit for Denbigh town centre. Head for the town centre and take the second turning on your left signposted Saron (5 miles) and the site is on the T-junction.
Hike the Denbigh moors and head to Gwylfa Hiraethog, the ruins of an old shooting lodge that’s rumoured to be haunted; less hair-raisingly, the moors also have fishing, canoeing and sailing on the reservoir Llyn Brenig, where there’s a visitor centre, café and info on the local area.
The coniferous Clocaenog Forest is also on the moors and has several clear walks with views to Snowdonia and the Berwyn range, and a walk to the highest point of the forest, The Mast. Clocaenog is one of the areas in Wales to see red squirrels, and an enclosed area in the forest has rare Przewalski wild horses.
Caer Mynydd is 15 miles from the north Wales coastline and the seaside town of Rhyl, with its sandy six-mile stretch to neighbouring Prestatyn. The Sun Centre at Rhyl has adventure pools, surf pools and waterslides, and there’s a SeaQuarium on the seafront with an underwater tunnel, sea lion show and tropical reef zone for curious little squirts. Two other seaside resorts, Llandudno and Colwyn Bay, are within easy driving distance from here.
Golfers will find several courses in the area including courses at Rhyl and Prestatyn, with the closest at Denbigh Golf Club a couple of miles from Caer Mynydd. Prefer to cast off rather than tee off? Take your tackle to Llyn Brenig for fly fishing or to St Asaph’s River Elwy to land trout and Atlantic salmon; Denbighshire’s River Dee is famous for its salmon too.
There are three castles near Caer Mynydd: Denbigh Castle with its triple-towered gatehouse; the thirteenth century Rhuddlan Castle built by Edward I, and Bodelwyddan Castle with maze, formal garden, woodland and World War I practice trenches. Elsewhere for Denbighshire history, there’s Ruthin Gaol with displays on the Victorian prison system, pretending to be a Cistercian monk at Llangollen’s Valle Crucis Abbey or taking the old steam train Llangollen Railway along the River Dee to Carrog; if the kids like steaming about, there’s a miniature railway track around Marine Lake in Rhyl.
