Ael y Garnedd: Lovely views

General

  • Family-run touring park set in open Anglesey countryside
  • Just off the A55; Caernarfon and Beaumaris 20 minutes’ drive
  • Dog-friendly site with views of Snowdonia National Park

Stuck deciding between the mountains, the coast and the countryside? All three are easily accessed from Ael y Garnedd, a family-run touring park in Star, Anglesey. How so? Well, this site has a splendid selection of well-maintained, level pitches in pleasant grounds just off the A55, easily accessible from the Britannia Bridge and close to the Anglesey coastline.

The pitches have the added bonus of spectacular views over the mountains of Snowdonia National Park (which is from 20 minutes’ drive away, by the way). Whether it's mountaineering in Snowdonia, rib rides and exploring the castle in Beaumaris (20 minutes), or lunch in Caernarfon (20 minutes), the site's central location is bound to come very much in handy.

That’s what makes this place such a great base for family and dog-friendly holidays spent both on the island and mainland. Sandy beaches are close by too, and you'll be less than 30 minutes from the offerings at Benllech, Aberffraw, Rhosneigr and Ynys Llanddwyn, a haven for ramblers, rockpoolers and cyclists.

With amenities like grey-waste disposal, toilets and showers all provided, as well as a laundry room, life on site is comfortable, and if you do need to venture out it won't take you long to find what you're looking for. The nearest pub is five minutes' drive, while Menai Bridge (10 minutes) has a large supermarket and an array of shops and restaurants.

    If I could give more stars I would. I have stayed in many places and non have been even close to the excellence of here. Owners were absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Pitches were excellent and your own bit of grass next to your pitch. Toilets and showers were the cleanest I've ever come across at a campsite and the showers were a great temperature. Small children's play area and lots of room for them to run around and play. One way system in operation which makes the flow of traffic in and out much easier. Email the day before giving excellent directions and pitch number so as soon as you arrive you can just set up and settle in to your holiday. Close to the a55 and you can get most places on the island within half an hour. Beautiful scenery from the site. Owners are very knowledgeable about the local area and are always hallu to help and nothing is too much trouble for them. I will 1000% be returning

    A lovely little site.
    The Little play area was perfect for our 2 young children, who kept raving about ‘the curly slide’. I saw older kids also using the football nets and riding their bikes.
    It also has WiFi which helped entertain the children when we wanted them to calm down a bit.
    The views over Snowdon were beautiful!
    The shower and toilet facilities were maybe the best I’d seen on a campsite! Nice and new, and immaculate.
    I’ve seen a few reviews about the noise from the road and neighbouring farm dogs barking… these really weren’t an issue and we barely noticed them. In general it was a lovely quiet site except the occasional passing train that sounds it’s horn first thing in the morning!

    Disliked: 

    The only issue we had was the pitch we were on (number 24) was really sloped. We plan on staying again and we’ll definitely book a hard standing pitch as they all looked flat.

Directions

Local attractions

When you want to stay pretty local, make Menai Suspension Bridge (five minutes' drive) your first stop. The huge suspension bridge between Anglesey and mainland Wales is a sight to behold. Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens (10 minutes) is rather interesting too, as a historic estate with peaceful gardens and tea rooms.

Beaumaris (20 minutes) next? This stop is by the seaside, hence the gorgeous promenade, and the castle is also worth a visit. Caernarfon Castle (20 minutes) has a big ‘wow’ factor too – the huge palace-style fortress sits along the river Seiont and looks very grand. In Conwy (30 minutes), there’s another castle, as well as the harbour where boat tours take off across the coast.

For those of you interested in getting to know legends and history around St David, visit the island of Ynys Llanddwyn (30 minutes). The scenery is just as great at Great Orme (45 minutes), a chunk of limestone land that juts out into the sea and has been named the ‘sea monster’ by the Vikings.

Time for some adrenaline instead? Zip World Fforest (40 minutes) has a forest rollercoaster and zipwires or swings over the treetops.

Must see

  • Caernarfon Castle (6.1 miles)
  • Beaumaris Castle (6.7 miles)
  • Penrhyn Castle (6.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens (1.8 miles)
  • Aberconwy House (17.5 miles)
