The farmer's house

General

  • Spacious and peaceful site with sea views in north Wales
  • A 10-minute drive from Talacre beach and 20 minutes from Rhyl
  • Within an hour's drive of ski centre, Surf Snowdonia and Zip World

Whopping big fields and phenomenal views in Flintshire? Whoop a big yes please to Ynyshir Farm, a small but supremely spacious site with sea vistas, 10 minutes’ drive from Talacre on the north Wales coast.

Look one way towards the Dee Estuary and the Irish Sea; look the other and it’s all green fields giving way to hills and the mountains of Snowdonia beyond... this really is a cracking spot. Being on a former farm, there’s bags of space to stretch out and run about… or stretch out and do nothing, except watching the clouds scudding across the sky or the sun setting over the waves...

Firepits are available to hire for outdoor cookouts and late night natters: bring the dog along to sit around the fire too, as they'll be made most welcome on site. They’re welcome too on Talacre beach 10 minutes’ drive away, where shifting dunes, wide sands and a 17th-century lighthouse make a mighty good introduction to the area.

If you like a livelier seaside experience, then Rhyl, with its amusements and aquarium, miniature railway and botanical gardens is 20 minutes away.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

    Everything! Beautiful location with great views of the nearby beaches, they're only about a 10minute car journey away. Our pitch was lovely and tidy, the facilties clean every day we were there and the guys who run the site were so welcoming and very helpful - they even came round on a morning to collect any rubbish to save you the hassle of taking it to the bins. A big tesco just down the road in Prestatyn if you need it, pub in walking distance and other food places just a short car journey away. We visited snowdon which was just over an hours drive away too. Couldn't fault the place.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing! Not a dislike but the guys said the bank holiday weekend was so busy before we arrived so maybe a couple more showers etc would be helpful in those situations and some signs for the camp site as you get close as we were getting lost on our way back - silly satnav!

    Not cramped or overbooked.
    Level pitches, grass kept short.
    Close to beach and supermarkets (5 min drive).
    Owner went out of his way to be helpful, cutting up logs and collecting rubbish daily.
    Large dog field next to the campsite for off lead runs.
    Toilets kept clean and tidy.
    Amazing views!

    The view was beautiful. Beach in the distance. Farm was beautiful. Camping area very clean and tidy. Owners were polite and helpful. Shower and toilet area clean and well maintained. Quiet and secluded. Yet only a short drive to the main road to Prestatyn. 10 minutes drive to beautiful beach in Talacre. Definitely will go again. This time I will rent a fire pit for £20 as they looked amazing!

    Had a lovely relaxed Bank Holiday weekend with friends. Lovely setting and views. Lots of space for pitches. Lovely new toilets, shower rooms. The owner is lovely - nothing was too much trouble for him. The main toilet building was very clean and tidy.

    Disliked: 

    I think the fields should be set out as family, dogs and party fields. So then everyone knows what to expect in each field. Portaloos where filled and not emptied but I guess this was because of bank holiday weekend. maybe more would be handy also. Only one washing up sink, so was a little wait but not too long.

    Not that I disliked.... as they were clean but there could be a couple more showers and washing up facilities to help on number of people there.

    Scored down on Child Friendless for people who will view this and require it to be ... Just there wasn't anything for the children to play on... but that only matters if your children or you can't make their own entertainment.

Local attractions

Forever being invaded and defended, it’s castle country round here: 12th-century Denbigh Castle (20 minutes' drive) is at the ghostly ruin end of the scale, while mighty Conwy (40 minutes) looks like it’s still ready to see off a rebel army.

If you’re into active stuff, try whizzing down the slopes of Llandudno Ski and Snowboard Centre (40 minutes), riding the waves on Surf Snowdonia’s ingeniously choppy practice lake (50 minutes), or whizzing at great height and velocity down the wires at Zip World Fforest and Penrhyn Quarry, both an hour away.

Brought your walking boots? There’s an easy but rewarding trail to the waterfall at Dyserth,10 minutes away; for longer wanders in Snowdonia National Park, it’s an hour’s journey to the start of trails up Carnedd Llewelyn and to Aber Falls. (If you want the heights without straining the hooves, loaf over to Llanberis, an hour away and take the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the top of Wales’ highest peak; you could always walk back down...)

If you like a bit of wildlife with your walks, trips up and around the Great Orme headland just above Llandudno (40 minutes) are often likely to be accompanied by sightings of sea birds and even seagoing porpoises. If you want to meet some more exotic beasts close up, it’s a similar distance to the sea lions, sea eagles and Sumatran tigers of the Welsh Mountain Zoo.

Must see

  • Rhuddlan Castle (6.6 miles)
  • Bodelwyddan Castle (8.9 miles)
  • Williamson Art Gallery & Museum (12.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Mr Hardman's Photographic Studio (15.0 miles)
  • Speke Hall, Garden and Estate (18.4 miles)
