General

  • Friendly family-run site just over three miles from Ruthin
  • Views of the Clwydian Range and its highest hill, Moel Famau
  • A mile from a bar-restaurant open from Wednesdays to Sundays

You’ll be close to weeks’ worth of stuff to see and do with a stay at family-run Maes Carafanau Llanbenwch Caravan Park, centrally set in north Wales and Denbighshire and within easy reach of adventures and attractions for all tastes.

Scenery seekers (and sensible sorts) will want to stay put on site for quite some time too, among the spectacular views of the Clwydian Range and Moel Famau from this handsome Vale of Clwyd park, and plenty of green space to pitch up and picnic in.

Hikers – and historians – are hugely well placed here too: the site also looks out towards nearby Moel Famau, the highest hill in the Clwydian Range, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and dotted with several Iron Age forts. The mighty Offa’s Dyke long-distance trail passes the hill’s summit.

The caravan park is a comfy spot to come back to, with modern amenities, a friendly vibe and barbecues allowed – sizzle supper on the coals then settle back to contemplate the clear sky as night falls… A bar-restaurant (open from Wednesdays to Sundays) is about a mile away for eating out, and the pubs, restaurants and shops of the ancient market town of Ruthin are just over three miles from the site.

Dogs are most welcome at the park, but should be on leads while on site – and cleaned up after, please.

    Loved the ease of access and picking our own pitch. Tranquil site for the 3 days we were there. Facilities kept spotless and always clean. Sara works tirelessly to make everything perfect 👌

    Disliked: 

    Loved the facilities however the toilets are in with the shower so there was often a queue for the toilet. More toilets and showers are the only thing lacking otherwise a perfect site and very reasonably priced. Internet was very intermittent possibly the weather on the first night.

From the manager...

Thank you Yvonne for your review and so glad you enjoyed your stay here with us, we are so lucky it's peaceful and tranquil site in the beautiful Vale of Clwyd! I agree the toilets are temporary and we have just ordered the new building for the new shower block, Covid has held us back a little but hopefully next year it will be all finished, exciting times here at Llanbenwch. The bad weather on the Friday had affected the Wi-Fi but all sorted once we realised. Hope to welcome you back here soon. Sara

    Everything, the site was exceptionally well kept, all facilities were spotlessly clean, it is a very well organised site with a great secure dog park where your furry friend can run and play call safely. A separate area for children and adults to play games, jog, workout or just stroll. Very friendly owners. A short bike ride or good walk from Ruthin town where you can visit the castle, the oldest timber house in the UK and it’s quaint little shops and cafes. We took a lovely ride into Llangollen where the picturesque surroundings make for a lovely day out, the Dee Side Cafe was lovely food and great value for money, Llangollen also offers water sports such as white water rafting and canoeing. A great site not too far from our home so perfect for little getaways.

Oh Debbie thank you for the lovely review, wow you took amazing photos of the local area, we are so lucky where we live. We can't wait to welcome you back here in the future with new facilities on the way it will hopefully attract many visitors back here to the vale of Clwyd. Sarax

    We liked everything about this site, the greeting by Sara was really nice, she explained all of the facilities and where we could pitch.
    The facilities were, easy to get too, all well managed and clean i.e. toilets/showers, water, waste water etc.
    The pitches were all well defined and fairly level as they had been cut into a slightly sloping grass field, solar lamps had been put around the site so when it got dark it looked quite nice. The grass was well cut and short so you don't bring heaps of long dead grass into your camper like some sites.
    The site was quite over night, we believe there is a pub not too far away but we didn't visit it.
    We would highly recommend this site if you are in the area and wouldn't hesitate to go there again if we were in the area.
    Good WIFI if you need it.
    Well done to Sara and the staff. We loved it.

    There is nothing to dislike about this site it was not only as advertised but better.

Oh thank you so so much for your kind words, we are so glad you liked our site. We hope we get to welcome you back here in the future and hopefully things will be moving onward here with the new facilities etc. Take care and see you soon hopefully, Sara

Directions

Local attractions

If you think your legs will take it, the team on site highly recommend a hike up to Moel Famau, the highest hill in the Clwydian Range and reachable within 15 minutes’ drive. It’s a climb of 1,818 feet to the top but do stagger up if you can – the views of north Wales and north-west England from the summit’s Jubilee Tower are stunning.

Walks are easily accessed from Moel Famau too – if you dare – including a couple of short trails to the south (from the car park) and down to the village of Cilcain via the footpath from the summit. For the truly hardy, the local section of the Offa’s Dyke Path skirts alongside Moel Famau… it runs for a full 177 miles if you’re up for it…

For a gentler day out, drive the five minutes or so to Ruthin for its restaurants, pubs, independent shops and 800 years of architecture around its narrow streets. It’s a pretty place to potter around, with plenty of the region’s famed black and white houses to see as well as peaceful times to be had by the River Clywd running through Cae Ddôl park.
