Spacious grass pitches

General

  • Peaceful caravan park on a working farm 15 minutes from Denbigh
  • Spectacular views across the Vale of Clwyd and up to the coast
  • Farm produce available (eg eggs and sausages) and near local pub

Peaceful times, gorgeous views and easy access to walks and bike rides… all are on the menu for guests at Plas Dolben, a quiet caravan park on a working farm in the Clwydian Range Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The folk at this scenic site (which looks out over the Vale of Clwyd) keep sheep, cows, pigs and free-range chickens, and have a range of their own produce for sale to guests. Eggs, sausages and other meat products are among the edibles that are usually available for your feasts, and new potatoes put in an appearance when they’re in season too.

Need to top up on the provisions? The towns of Denbigh and Ruthin are both around a 15-minute drive away for shops and restaurants; if you’d rather someone else did the cooking (and poured you a pint while you wait), take yourselves on the 10-minute trot to the local pub.

This is a back to basics place, so facilities are limited to a toilet, hot shower and cold water tap; there’s also plenty of space around the site to relax and play games or light up a barbecue.

Getting out into the surrounds is a cinch here: a walking trail and mountain bike trail pass through the site, and a bus route passes by for those who’d like to roam by public transport. Snowdonia and the north Wales coast are within a 45-minute drive.

Please note

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

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Because of access restrictions, the site is not suitable for very large or long caravans.

There are no waste removal facilities on site.

Local attractions

To make the most of your immediate surrounds, set out on the four-mile heritage walking route that passes through the farm, taking in abandoned farmhouses, St Cynhafal's church and the farm’s own medieval holy well. You’re also a 20-minute walk from the Offa’s Dyke Path, and an hour or so from the top of Moel Famau.

For other outdoorsy pursuits, take your wheels out on the Ride the Clwyds mountain bike trail that runs through the site, or get set for games of golf (in Mold, 25 minutes’ drive) or footgolf (in Ruthin, 15 minutes). Walks in the Snowdonia National Park are around 45 minutes away, as are the sandy beaches of Rhyl, Prestatyn and Talacre.

Castles? Of course there are a few nearby (you can’t go far in Wales without finding a castle…) Start in Denbigh (15 minutes’ drive), where you can also take a wander around the town’s ancient walls, then set your sights on family-friendly Bodelwyddan Castle (half an hour’s drive) and/or the imposing medieval fortress of Conwy Castle (45 minutes).
