A nearby beach

General

  • Well maintained and secluded park with views of grassy fields
  • Less than five minutes’ drive to Valley and 10 minutes to Holyhead
  • Porth Trwyn beaches less than 15 minutes’ drive

How does a peaceful hol in the very northern reaches of north Wales sound? If the answer’s an instant yes please, give Pencraig Campsite a go: in the countryside of Anglesey on a smallholding next to a field full of ponies overlooking grassy green meadows.

The sunset views are excellent from this site, to creating a serene setting in which to stoke up the barbecue at the end of a day beachcombing around the lovely Isle of Anglesey. Shores within easy driving distance include Porth Trwyn and Church bay, both 15 minutes); the latter has a café for filling up at as well as a small museum in an old thatched 17th-century cottage.

For other eats, the local village of Valley is a five-minute drive from the site just off the island’s main coastal road with its pubs, takeaways, small shops and petrol station. A few bigger supermarket are on the way to Holyhead less than 10 minutes’ drive away; come here for twitching too as it’s the gateway to scenic cliffside walks with the potential of puffin spotting at RSPB South Stack (20 minutes away).

If you’ve brought a four-legged friend on the trip – as dogs are welcome at Pencraig Campsite – plenty of places for walkies are about, including around the colourful disused copper mine of Parys Mountain (half an hour away).

    Lovely views, extremely quiet, almost flat motorhome pitches. The owner came on and spoke with me whilst I was waiting for my friends. Seems a nice guy.

    Disliked: 

    The sign for the turning to the campsite is a little small and hard to see. Apart from that everything else was good.

    The site has a great location, very quiet but only a few minutes drive to shops and amenities and the lovely beaches, cliffs, walks and small villages that Anglesey is famous for.
    Wake every morning to see horses and cows and birds in the adjacent fields.
    The dogs and ourselves loved it.

    Nice little site. Fairly level. Only 1 ladies shower & toilet so when busy could be a problem but the one they do have is almost like a home from home. It was clean and tidy. Owners were friendly and very helpful. Only stayed the one night but if we were traveling that way again we would def book another night. Good price too.
    Nice little touch the horse in the field, make sure you don't touch the fence as it is electric.

    Great location. Small camp area suitable if you don't want to be in an overcrowded campsite.
    Friendly staff.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet/shower facilities: there was only one shower + toilet for men + women. Toilet was not separate so if needed to use toilets and someone was using the shower then had to wait.

Local attractions

Anglesey has numerous beaches to comb, including the quiet bay of Rhoscolyn 15 minutes' drive away with calm, shallow water for paddling or kayaking and Traeth Llydan (20 minutes) a wide, sandy stretch of coastline. Llanddwyn Island is 45 minutes away – visit at low tide to reach it via the sand.

For age-old history in between submerges in the sea, the Neolithic-era Barclodiad y Gawres burial chamber is 15 minutes’ drive away and the Bryn Celli Ddu Burial Chamber takes 25 minutes to reach for investigating Wales’ prehistoric history.

Slightly more recent heritage can be had on tours of Beaumaris’ castle and old jail, a pretty seaside village that’s also top for shopping in small independent boutiques and filling up in traditional pubs.

Off Anglesey, about an hour and five minutes’ drive, is the base of Wales’ biggest mountain Snowdon. If your legs are feeling up to it, hike to the summit – or just take the train...
