Foxtail Holiday Park: Spacious

General

  • Modern holiday park on the border between England and Wales
  • Oswestry and Wrexham within 15 minutes' drive; Chester 30 minutes
  • Dog-friendly site with all-weather pitches; pub five minutes' walk

Entertaining the idea of a cross-border break? For comfy hols on the England–Wales border, look no further than Foxtail Holiday Park, a modern site a couple of minutes' walk from the Llangollen Canal.

Even savvy locals would be forgiven for being outfoxed by the geography around here, as this green agricultural landscape straddles the border in ways that make it difficult to keep up with which country you're in (any Cymraeg on the road signs is often a helpful clue).

And letting yourself lose your bearings isn't without appeal in this part of the world – crisscross the surrounding terrain along the Llangollen Canal or Offa's Dyke Path if you fancy days of rambling (both are clearly signposted, so there's little chance of getting properly lost).

Back at base, this well-kept park has an array of attractive all-weather pitches where you can settle down and relax after days of adventuring. Toilets, showers, disabled facilities, drainage points for tourers and free superfast wifi are all mightily handy to have, while fuss-free dinners can be fixed at the traditional inn five minutes' walk down the road. Foxtail Holiday Park also has the plus of being dog-friendly (as is the pub, for that matter). Need a supermarket, leisure centre or takeaway? Oswestry and Wrexham are both within 15 minutes' drive.

Please note

The swimming pool is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

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

    Superb new well laid out site.
    This site will even be better when the ongoing work is completed. The layout of the large pitches is great. The amenity block is the best we have seen on our tour and will be even better when the pool is opened. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Well done all.

    Disliked: 

    Not a criticism of the site but the local pub which is a just across the road seems to have a problem with staff. Can not get any chefs to prepare meals. Nice pub but don't expect food.

    Very friendly and helpful wardens.

    Disliked: 

    Very expensive, we did expect a bit more luxury. The showers were far too small and to dry myself I went into a cubicle.opposite. The sinks in the cubicle are tiny really not fit for purpose. When the park is full 3 showers/ toilets + disabled toilet / shower will they be enough?. The road noise didn't bother us as mentioned in other reviews.

Local attractions

Longing for the outdoor life? Rafters can hire a craft and splash their way down the rapids at Llangollen (15 minutes' drive), a pretty village in the foothills of the Berwyn Mountains. Those with courage left to spare can abseil, walk through gorges or clamber over rocks at the place's couple of outdoor activity centres; there's also scope for more relaxing rides aboard a volunteer-run heritage railway and horse-drawn jaunts in a restored barge.

The ancient town of Chester (30 minutes) is also close if you're up for a change of scene – with museums, Roman remains and one of the finest zoos in all of England, there's a lot here to please any curious kids you've brought along. Additional hands-on activities can be sorted with a trip to Wrexham's Xplore Science Discovery Centre (15 minutes), where live science demos should put a sparkle in any budding boffin's eye.

Other likeable local spots include engineering triumphs such as Chirk Aqueduct (20 minutes' walk) and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (10 minutes' drive) or historic houses like Chirk Castle (10 minutes) and Plas Newydd (15 minutes).
