Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Excellent hardstanding pitches in the 5 van site.  There is a separate site withing the field with plenty of grass pitches

Is there water on each pitch?            

No, but easily accessible

What is the electric like?           

16A– excellent


No – but the lady owner was happy for waste water to be thrown into the trees (‘water the trees with it’!)

What’s the site access like?        

Easy entrance on the corner.

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                              1 toilet/shower room adjacent to the owner’s bungalow.  Very clean

Toilet paper provided? Yes                                                                                                                   Showers:                          we didn’t use it ourselves, but look very good.

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD


Information room with book library

Picnic table and seating area

Lots of space for children to play

An owner who considers all campers when deciding whether or not to accept a booking – lovely lady 🙂

No – we used our own and had no issues.

Very, very good.

How much is it?     

We paid £15 per night including electric.

What’s the area like?            

This site is midway between Denbigh and Mold.  It has amazing views over the mountains.  We visited Chester, Flint and nearly went to Prestatyn (but ran out of steam!)
