- Small friendly site in Babell hamlet, a short drive from pubs/food
- Beaches, Chester Zoo and Snowdonia within 45 minutes' drive
- A few minutes from the A55 for easy cross-country journeys
Fishing, golf, horse riding, walks and beaches by day, trotting to the local pub of an evening – sound like the kind of holiday agenda you could possibly consider? If so, you’ll be settled among similar souls at The Ridings Caravan and Camping Park, a friendly little place in the teeny hamlet of Babell.
Outdoorsy antics galore can be had just a few minutes away, and it’s also a rather fine spot for those seeking to venture a little further, perhaps to the beaches of the north coast, the mountains and lakes of Snowdonia National Park or the excellent Chester Zoo. (It’s worth noting that though the views may be decidedly rural, the A55 is handily just a few minutes’ drive away.)
However you choose to fill your hours, cap off a fine day by taking the short drive to the local pub for pub grub, or by stoking up a barbie or cosying up round a firepit on site (available to rent should you not fancy carting your own).
Being a relaxed kind of place, amenities have been kept on the simple side: a shower, toilets, washing-up area and chemical disposal point are all provided and guests can pick up logs to test out their fire-making skills.

Want to go for a walk? Take your pick from the coast path, the mountain and lake trails of the Snowdonia National Park and trots along the northern part of the Offa’s Dyke Path. Gentler souls may like to stroll around Basingwerk Abbey and the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park 10 minutes away in Holywell, while more intrepid types make an assault on Moel Famau, the highest hill in the Clwydian Range.
The area around the park has plenty of other fresh-air activity, too: horse riding, golf and fishing are within a 10-minute drive, and it’s a 45-minute journey to Surf Snowdonia. For a dose of sea air, Talacre and Prestatyn beaches around about 20 minutes away, or you can reach the elegant resort of Llandudno in 40 minutes.
Chester Zoo and the Welsh Mountain Zoo, half an hour away, are both popular picks for family days out, or you may like to meet the sea creatures at Rhyl’s SeaQuarium. And (being Wales) there’s always a castle to visit: Gwrych, Conwy and Rhuddlan are all within half an hour’s drive to inspire your budding knights.
