Commonwood Leisure: Bell tent on a solid surface with bench

General

  • Lakeside glamping at a 60-acre site 10 minutes' drive from Wrexham
  • Chester, Llangollen and three golf courses within a half-hour drive
  • Café on site; 10 fishing lakes for all levels from kids to pros

Finding a secluded spot surrounded by mature woodlands in north Wales is a fine idea in itself – but it gets even better here if you’re into your fishing. And that’s because Commonwood Leisure has 10 lakes around its 60-acre site, catering for everyone from kids and beginners to pros (who may like to wrestle with the 60-pound whopper that lives in the catfish lake…)

It’s all set up to be as straightforward as possible at this well-maintained park: the glamping tents are set up either by a one-acre lake or in a family area away from the water's edge. Wherever you stay you'll get a private fishing peg for each tent (plus a private toilet and parking space).

Not fussed by fishing? This lakeside setting should be pretty splendid for you too: there’s plenty of space to relax by the water, taking in the views and lighting up a barbecue or firepit for warm evenings. Getting out and about should be straightforward as well: the site is five minutes’ drive from the village of Holt (for pubs, cafés and an excellent farm shop) and 10 minutes from the centre of Wrexham.

A café on site serves up tasty food and cool drinks, and other facilities include a bait shop and bike hire. You can also enlist the skills of a photographer on the staff who’ll happily set up a family shoot to make mementoes while you’re out on a walk through the Welsh countryside.

If walking’s not such a hit with the kids, they can get stuck into rural life by spending some time with the herd of friendly pygmy goats on site (even friendlier, rumour has it, if you grab a pack of ginger biscuits from the café to feed them with…)

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 21 or over.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Group bookings of 6 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

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

Guests must bring their own duvets, pillows, sheets and towels when staying in rental accommodation. You will not be allowed to stay if you do not bring these items.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The bar is open between 25/02 and 01/10.

    No electricity made it expensive being there for the 3 days in such good weather with small kids and no cool box after day 1.
