General

  • Vale of Clwyd site a mile from Ruthin town centre
  • Half an hour's drive from Snowdonia and 40 minutes from the coast
  • Views of the Clwydian Range: Moel Famau within walking distance

Even a quick look at the pics gives away that Coed Derw Camping has some cracking views out over the Clwydian Range… and that in turn should give you a hint that this Denbighshire site, within the grounds of the Vale Country Club, is a fine spot for a walking holiday.

It’s a particularly fine spot if you’re in the area to climb Moel Famau, the region’s highest peak. This popular hiking area is within walking distance of the park so you can tackle it without any need to consider car parking – always something of a bonus.

Your boots won’t be done once you’re back down from there: have a chat with the folk on site for ideas on where else to walk locally or take a drive to the Snowdonia National Park (about half an hour away). While you’re over in Snowdonia, you might like to tackle mountain bike trails, inland surfing or zipwires too; if that all sounds a bit much, head north to the seaside with a drive of 40 minutes or so.

Got any more walking in your legs? It’s handy to know you can walk to the town of Ruthin in about 20 minutes (along a road that’s got pavement all the way) – although you could also drive in five minutes if you’re out of puff. Either way, there are plenty of places to eat and drink over there, plus takeaways and shops to pick up supplies for a barbecue back at base.

Back at base, facilities include toilets, showers and free wifi.

    The owner was very welcoming. We arrived by bicycle and were able to easily find a pitch away from other users. The shower and toilet facilities were of a very good/clean modern standard. Washing up sinks are also available. The site is conveniently located within cycling distance to Ruthin. Amazing views of the stars on a clear night.

    Attitude of campsite owner / person who phoned me in relation to the booking I had made: i made a booking via pitch up, included ALL information requested, it was confirmed, I paid the required amount to stay there for that night. A short while later I received a telephone call from the campsite to say that as there was 3 tents (I had indicated this on the booking) they would not be able to accommodate us on the 'unlimited pitch' afterall and that all the could do was charge 3 times the original amount. I had paid £52. They now wanted me to pay another two lots of £52! £52 for one evening per 2 man tent! When I explained that I felt this was not our error as we had provided all the necessary information accurately and that we were nearly at the campsite and needed somewhere to say she stated categorically there was nothing she could do. We tried phoning them back when we were able to pull over and they ignored phone calls from my number. When my husband phoned from his mobile they answered immediately. Long story short, we stayed there that evening as had paid and refund was not going to be forthcoming and our friends got a pitch off £30 something. So over £85 for three x 2man tents. Disgusted to find, when we got there that the field was almost empty and they could very easily have accommodated us whereas they had said at the start it would be very difficult because of social distancing and despite me explaining our plight, ie that we and our friends/family would have nowhere to stay that night and it was raining heavily too. How unfriendly is that, especially as it was not our error. . The field was massive.and almost empty. Not cool.

Local attractions

Best way to get out for a walk? Head straight out from the site for the likes of Ruthin Gaol (half an hour on foot) or Moel Famau (an hour and 15 minutes). Once you’ve wandered locally there are heaps more fab routes in the Snowdonia National Park (half an hour’s drive) or out on the Denbighshire moors, where Llyn Brenig (half an hour) is a top spot for waterside walks, plus sailing and fishing.

If you’ve got a bit of an adventurous streak, there are plenty of places to unleash that around here. If it’s moving at speed that gets your heart going, try out the mountain bike trails at One Planet Adventure (20 minutes), or scream along the ziplines at Zip World Fforest (45 minutes). For water-based antics, ride the surf waves at Adventure Parc Snowdonia (half an hour), or something subterranean, bounce on the underground trampolines at Zip World Slate Caverns (an hour).

Time for a breather? Rhyl (40 minutes) is a fine choice for a day at the seaside, playing on the beach, riding the miniature railway and eyeballing the sea beasties at the aquarium.

Must see

  • Bodelwyddan Castle (21.5 kilometres)
  • Rhuddlan Castle (22.6 kilometres)
