Pencraig Campsite

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Well maintained and secluded park with views of grassy fields
  • Less than five minutes’ drive to Valley and 10 minutes to Holyhead
  • Porth Trwyn beaches less than 15 minutes’ drive away

How does a peaceful hol in the very northern reaches of north Wales sound? If the answer’s an instant yes please, give Pencraig Campsite a go: it's in the Anglesey countryside on a smallholding next to a field full of ponies overlooking grassy green meadows.

The sunset views are excellent from this site, creating a serene setting in which to stoke up the barbecue at the end of a day beachcombing around the lovely Isle of Anglesey. Shores within easy driving distance include Porth Trwyn and Church Bay (both 15 minutes); the latter has a café for filling up at as well as a small museum in an old thatched 17th-century cottage.

For other eats, the local village of Valley is a five-minute drive from the site just off the island’s main coastal road with its pubs, takeaways, small shops and petrol station. A few bigger supermarkets are on the way to Holyhead less than 10 minutes’ drive away; come here for birdwatching too as it’s the gateway to scenic cliffside walks with the potential of puffin spotting at RSPB South Stack (20 minutes away).

If you’ve brought a four-legged friend on the trip – as dogs are welcome at Pencraig Campsite – plenty of places for walkies are about, including around the colourful disused copper mine of Parys Mountain (half an hour away).

    The Area

    Disliked: 

    Nobody there to show us our pitch waiting around to find out.
    Could do with some better access especially leading onto the pitches.
    We booked Tuesday to Sunday but left Thursday morning due to the field getting very water logged and could envisage the van getting stuck in the mud.
    The Site can't help the weather but can make the access to the pitches better.

    Weather awful, so was a bit muddy walking to toilets. Also would be nice to have somewhere to wash dishes.

From the manager...

New Toilet/Shower facilities are being built as I type! Along with dedicated washing up area ☺️ Come and see us next year to see all our upgrades!

Directions

Local attractions

Anglesey has numerous beaches to comb, including the quiet bay of Rhoscolyn (15 minutes' drive away) with calm, shallow water for paddling or kayaking and Traeth Llydan (20 minutes), a wide, sandy stretch of coastline. Llanddwyn Island is 45 minutes away – visit at low tide to reach it via the sand.

For age-old history in between submerges in the sea, the Neolithic-era Barclodiad y Gawres burial chamber is 15 minutes’ drive away and the Bryn Celli Ddu Burial Chamber takes 25 minutes to reach for investigating Wales’ prehistoric history.

Slightly more recent heritage can be had on tours of Beaumaris’ castle and old jail; the pretty seaside village is also tiptop for shopping in small independent boutiques and filling up in traditional pubs.

Off Anglesey, about an hour and five minutes’ drive away, is the base of Wales’ biggest mountain, Snowdon. If your legs are feeling up to it, hike to the summit – or just take the train…
