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.

    Toilet block was modern but quite dirty, however it was bank holiday weekend and there were some large groups on site, I think it would benefit some additional cleaning on busy weekends. Also very expensive.

    The campsite was very clean, the view was great, close to lots of activities, and the ability to have fires (including renting a fire pit and buying wood) was great. The staff were friendly and recommended so great places and activities.

    Disliked: 

    Whilst the facilities were clean and good once you got to use them, there just weren't enough toilets. Queuing for the showers is understandable but queuing 15 minutes just to even fo for a wee is too long. There needs to be more toilets that are separate from the family bathrooms.

    A lovely farm with a great view of the sea. The owner was very friendly and even gave us his own fire-pit for a couple of nights as there were no more available. It is a very peaceful location with Rhyl and Prestatyn not far away if you want the beach. Would definitely visit again in the future.

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 (10.6 kilometres)
  • Bodelwyddan Castle (14.3 kilometres)
  • Williamson Art Gallery & Museum (19.6 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Mr Hardman's Photographic Studio (24.2 kilometres)
  • Speke Hall, Garden and Estate (29.5 kilometres)
