General

  • Peaceful, family-run site close to walking paths in the Clwydian hills
  • A 10-minute drive from Ruthin and 15 from Loggerheads Country Park
  • Wooded area for den building and a stream; firepits for hire

If you’re thinking of taking a countryside trip but still want to whizz back and forth to a town, cast your eye over the family-run Camping Minffordd. It may be in the rural Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but it’s also less than a 10-minute drive from Ruthin’s restaurants, pubs and supermarkets.

A tearoom and an inn are about a mile away for finding food on foot as well, but many people prefer to cook up meals on site – barbecues are allowed, firepits are for hire and wood is available to buy – while letting the kids build dens in the woodland area and paddle in the pretty stream. Stock up on ingredients in Ruthin or pre-order one of the park’s local produce boxes by getting in touch via the contact details sent to you with your booking.

Dogs are welcome to holiday at Camping Minffordd as well, so walkies are to be had along local paths, including up to the highest peak in the area, Moel Famau, or along the famed Offa’s Dyke route.

Cycling trails are nearby too and creative types who prefer using their hands over stretching their legs might like to swing by a popular craft centre that runs a programme of activities and exhibitions (ask on site for details).

    Beautiful setting, Ruthin is about an hours walk along a river with hills as a backdrop.
    Very clean and not busy as pitches are limited.
    Owners very friendly, and you can hire fire pits and wood for the evening.
    I would certainly recommend this site to family and friends.

Local attractions

North Wales is a land of mountain biking trails, historic castles, fab food and adventure centres, so applying the phrase ‘there’s something for everyone’ to this area is by no means an exaggeration.

Stop off in Ruthin first, a historic market town (10 minutes’ drive), to try the grub in the restaurants, pubs and tearooms before exploring the old gaol then venturing a little further to roam around Rhuddlan Castle (half an hour).

Travel a touch further to the coast next – Rhyl (35 minutes), in the very north of north Wales, has a long sandy beach for the kids to play on.

Rather stick to the local landscape? Loggerheads Country Park (15 minutes) is home to a wood-covered valley tracing the River Alyn and has views of the mighty Moel Famau peak.

Alternatively, head west for Llyn Brenig (half an hour), a fishing lake 1,200 feet high up in the Denbigh Moors, or zoom towards the Zip World Slate Caverns (an hour) in Snowdonia National Park and zipline across a disused quarry.

Must see

  • Bodelwyddan Castle (18.7 kilometers)
  • Rhuddlan Castle (19.8 kilometers)
  • Chester Castle (28.5 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (26.9 kilometers)
  • Bodnant Garden (34.2 kilometers)
