General

  • Spacious and peaceful site with sea views in north Wales
  • A 10-minute drive from Talacre beach and 20 minutes from Rhyl
  • Within an hour's drive of ski centre, Surf Snowdonia and Zip World

Whopping big fields and phenomenal views in Flintshire? Whoop a big yes please to Ynyshir Farm, a small but supremely spacious site with sea vistas, 10 minutes’ drive from Talacre on the north Wales coast.

Look one way towards the Dee Estuary and the Irish Sea; look the other and it’s all green fields giving way to hills and the mountains of Snowdonia beyond… this really is a cracking spot. Being on a former farm, there’s bags of space to stretch out and run about… or stretch out and do nothing, except watching the clouds scudding across the sky or the sun setting over the waves…

Firepits are available to hire for outdoor cookouts and late-night natters: bring the dog along to sit around the fire too, as they'll be made most welcome on site. They’re welcome too on Talacre beach 10 minutes’ drive away, where shifting dunes, wide sands and a 17th-century lighthouse make a mighty good introduction to the area.

If you like a livelier seaside experience, then Rhyl, with its amusements and aquarium, miniature railway and botanical gardens is 20 minutes away.

Excellent base for exploring North Wales10/01/2020

    Good location for exploring North Wales and beyond with excellent views
    Clean toilet/shower block with family rooms and a space for washing dishes
    Taps around the campsite for getting clean drinking water
    The owners are on site and always happy to help without being imposing. They kindly provide a firepit renting facility at a good rate!
    We would highly recommend Ynshir Farm for a camping trip in North Wales

    Disliked: 

    Only 1x shower and toilet block meaning it can be a bit of a walk depending on where you pitch

    Beautiful location and views, helpful and friendly staff, clean and modern toilets! Love the fact you can hire firepits and use Bbqs, you must book in advance as they get very popular, it really made the trip so special.

    Disliked: 

    No shop on site, Group of young people in the next field making noise until 3am - not the site owners fault but doesn't seem to be any rules regarding this, wasn't too much of a problem for me but if your a light sleeper bear this in mind

    This is our second stay at this site in the last two months.
    Once again, site is immaculate, owners/workers a pleasure to deal with, nice and quiet site. Great to see they've acted on some of the feedback and added some small touches to the shower block, ie wooden benches in the shower rooms etc. Great place, can't wait to come back!

    The site was spotless. Very well looked after. The toilet & shower block was spotless. The site had a lovely laid back vibe. The owners & staff were lovely. We were with friends & children & we were allowed to pitch up anywhere. The kids were safe exploring & playing on their bikes.We hired a fire pit & logs on site. We will definitely be returning.

Local attractions

Forever being invaded and defended, it’s castle country round here: 12th-century Denbigh Castle (20 minutes' drive) is at the ghostly ruin end of the scale, while mighty Conwy (40 minutes) looks like it’s still ready to see off a rebel army.

If you’re into active stuff, try whizzing down the slopes of Llandudno Ski and Snowboard Centre (40 minutes), riding the waves on Surf Snowdonia’s ingeniously choppy practice lake (50 minutes), or whizzing at great height and velocity down the wires at Zip World Fforest and Penrhyn Quarry, both an hour away.

Brought your walking boots? There’s an easy but rewarding trail to the waterfall at Dyserth,10 minutes away; for longer wanders in Snowdonia National Park, it’s an hour’s journey to the start of trails up Carnedd Llewelyn and to Aber Falls. (If you want the heights without straining the hooves, loaf over to Llanberis, an hour away and take the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the top of Wales’ highest peak; you could always walk back down…)

If you like a bit of wildlife with your walks, trips up and around the Great Orme headland just above Llandudno (40 minutes) are often likely to be accompanied by sightings of sea birds and even seagoing porpoises. If you want to meet some more exotic beasts close up, it’s a similar distance to the sea lions, sea eagles and Sumatran tigers of the Welsh Mountain Zoo.

Must see

  • Rhuddlan Castle (10.6 kilometres)
  • Bodelwyddan Castle (14.3 kilometres)
  • Williamson Art Gallery & Museum (19.6 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Mr Hardman's Photographic Studio (24.2 kilometres)
  • Speke Hall, Garden and Estate (29.5 kilometres)
