The Plassey Leisure Park
- 01978 780 277
The Plassey Leisure Park is a stunning family friendly holiday retreat set just outside of Wrexham, close to the Wales and England border. This great park is packed with activities and amenities, meaning you can enjoy a true ‘stay on site’ holiday experience, should you choose to do so.
Open from February to November, this family owned and operated park offers a wide range of pitching options, whatever your means of travel, and also has a small number of owned holiday homes that lovers of the site may wish to purchase at some stage. Many of the pitches are fully serviced with electricity, water, and digital television hook ups, while each one benefits from electricity.
Plassey Leisure Park has a range of activities for the whole family, including a children’s clubhouse, exclusive 9-hole golf course, heated swimming pool, or miles of footpaths that will take you to all of the great views available from the site.
There is a great bar and restaurant situated on the site, which sells great tasting food and stocks a range of real ales brewed in the local area. The convenience store will help to take care of your essential purchases, leaving you with much free time to enjoy the facilities at Plassey Leisure Park.
Outside of the park, the town of Wrexham is well-sized yet quiet, allowing for a relatively peaceful meander around shops and local attractions. For those seeking outdoor retreats, Snowdonia National Park and the North Wales coast are all a little further afield, but not so far that you should be discouraged from visiting them.
If you prefer to stay nearer to home, then there are plenty of small village communities to visit, many of which house friendly pubs, shops, and open farms that can be visited, and are welcoming to all members of the family.

User rating: (4.9/5.0)
Just had a wonderful 5 night holiday on this site and must say how very pleased we are to discover The Plassey. We don’t write many reviews but this one is the exception to that rule. Recommended by friends we booked our stay on one of their fully serviced pitches this included mains electric, mains water and waste, TV and satellite connections (we simply took our own sky box). Upon arrival our first impression was how clean and tidy it appeared, we parked up and registered in what looked like a new or refurbished log cabin reception, the receptionist was really nice and bubbly gave us a welcome pack and arranged for an escort to take us to our pitch. I am pleased to say that their deluxe pitches are quite huge compared to most we have stayed on – pretty good as we have a large twin wheeler, once setup we went for a walk around the site. We found the loo’s and showers which were really spacious, modern and immaculately clean, we passed the indoor swimming pool, games area and shop on our way to the adjoining craft centre, restaurant, coffee shop and garden centre before reaching their golf course and clubhouse, my husband said the golf course is a proper 9 hole course and was in very good condition for the time of year. You could say that we were very impressed with all aspects of this quality site, and it must be the very best site we have stayed on.
Therefore we can not recommend this site enough for either a short term break or longer holiday and it’s suitable for all age groups, fabulous location set in over 250 acres with all the facilities we needed, and all immaculately maintained clean and tidy, staff are great very pleasant, happy and most helpful. The Plassey offers great value for money (especially their mid week offers) and it’s no wonder why they have won so many top awards. See you again soon.
Just had another 5 nights on this site, just as good as our stay in March. Yes, it was busy, and this was expected but didn't seem packed to the brim like some sites we have stayed on. Staff just as happy and really helpfull, facilities 100% super clean and tidy. Indoor swimming pool was excellent, nice and warm and yet again super clean. All grass area's cut short, flower beds and hanging baskets first class. Really relaxed and although busy with kids on holiday after say 10.30 you could hear a pin drop. No rowdy families, a real pleasure. The golf club now serving an excellent range of quality food at sensible prices. Hubby played golf and said it was most enjoyable and the course is in excellent condition.
Craft centre and coffee shop as we remembered it..... lovely.
Once again thanks everyone at Plassey for a wonderful stay.
Have stayed here before. Reason we go back is for the luxury of the site, peace and quite late evenings and site being very clean and to a high standard.
Facilities very good and nice to have home made cakes and snack cafe along with Pub restaurant all on site
Central to alot of places to visit
after meeting a lady in st annes we were talking about caravan sites then she reccomended the plassey,so within days we had booked to stay 2 nts,well we can say it is the best site weve been on spotless clean,beautiful scenery,swimming pool to die for,plenty to see and do,all the staff cannot do enough for you,and i would like to say DEE who did gardening,plus other jobs was so helpful with all her information,wont be to long before we go back.: September in 2010
We have stayed at the plassey on a number of occasions, and have been there for 3 week,while our house has the builders in. the staff are just brillant, allways a smile,and can not do enough for you.
The plassey has a great team, the campsite is spotless,clean,and very tidy.
our thanks go to john who has let us stayedon the site for so long.

Plassey Leisure Park, Wrexham, Wales
my mistake i only gave the plassey 3 stars and in fact i would rate this site a lot more for the concervation and hard work by john and his staff in maintaining the site in its natural habitat.
My Partner and i spent a long weekend at The Plassey in September, we had a great time. It is the cleanest camp site we have stayed on. Always someone cleaning the shower/toilet blocks. Staff are very friendly and proffessional, from the first minute we arrived at the site we were met by a member of staff, booked in and escorted to our pitch. The same staff patrolled the site at night, never disturbing holiday makers, i'm sure just checking all was ok. Made you feel safe. Definitely reccomend to my friends and we will be back. Thankyou
Plassey Leisure Park, Wrexham, Wales
Went here in July for the first time with my 8 mth old and 2 year old children. My Husband had to work and Mum was supposed to come with me...ended up just me and kids! The staff could not of been more helpful, they put me in a fantastic spot with other families. Everyone was very helpful. Used the family room for showers etc which was a massive help, just had to pay a small deposit. They are very clean and site is maintained to a high standard. The only thing I would suggest is that the play area has a range for toddlers such as a high back swing instead of the tyre swings they have at present! Younger children didn't have much to play on. Also my toaster broke so could not do toast for breakfast and through the week there was no where on site that opened early for breakfast, the cafe only served T Cakes!! Most families are up early. All in all a good site and would go back again.

We are a couple but usually tour with our handicapped adult son. ( HE LOVES PLASSEY !!!)A very attractive and well maintained site. Have been here many times and it will remain one of our firm favourites. The pitches are well laid out and generously sized. The facilities are first class and are kept spotless at all times. The staff are friendly and helpful. Late night noise is NOT tolerated so a good sleep is guaranteed.You'll need it too because there are loads of things to do/places to go/sights to see both ON the site and OFF it.
Thanks John and ALL your staff. See you again soon
We are a family of 5 and with the 3 children aged between 9 and 15 it is difficult to find a campsite that suits us all, we have owned a caravan for 4 years and bought it with the intention of touring different sites, however after we went to the plassey on recommendation it has spoilt us, we try different sites but find ourselves back at the Plassey.The site is first class, the staff are really friendly and helpful and the scenery is really beautiful. The toilet and shower blocks are first class, and the on site shop is well stocked. It is like a mini village there, you do not need to leave the site, it is a lovely walk around the small shops and boutiques, while our children paint pottery and are well looked after. We have eaten in the restaurant which was first class and also in the golf club where everyone is very friendly. Our children love the fishing lakes on site and the amusements; they have made lots of friends and can’t wait to go back for a spot of golf. We spent bonfire weekend there in November last year and the firework display was fantastic we had a brilliant weekend. We have recommend this site to friends and they keep returning there as we do.

Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks Award 2008
Last year’s winner has put in another strong performance in our Top 100. The site was once a farm and the original Edwardian farm buildings have been converted into boutiques, shops selling handmade crafts, a café and a restaurant. The site also has its own real-ale brewery.
For a relaxing holiday, stay on site. You will be surrounded by 247 acres of park and woodland with panoramic views over the Dee Valley. Once you have explored the site’s shops and two miles of walking paths, have a leisurely stroll to the nearby pretty villages of Overton and Bangor-On-Dee.
For a more active holiday you can get involved in the on-site activities, which include an indoor heated pool, play area, golf course, badminton, table tennis, and fishing.
For a day out, the market town of Llangollen is just a short drive away. Here you will find Plas Newydd, the half-timbered house that was home to the Ladies of Llangollen; the Motor Museum and Canal Exhibition; and the impressive Royal International Pavilion where the International Eisteddfod is held every year. Erddig House and Chirk Castle are also close by.
The pitches at The Plassey
are all large, equipped with electric hook-up, and a number of water points are located throughout the pitches. Some fully serviced hardstanding pitches are also available.
There are several heated washblocks on the site. These all have provisions for babies and the disabled. The site has separate dishwashing facilities and a launderette, too.

UK Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks Awards 2007 OVERALL WINNER!
Located in the beautiful Dee Valley, with the picturesque villages of Overton and Bangor-on-Dee nearby, The Plassey Leisure Park is in a lovely spot. More akin to a small village than a caravan site, this former dairy farm has been transformed by current owner John Brookshaw into a wonderful location suitable for families and couples.
The site’s outbuildings have been converted into a magnificent restaurant, a coffee shop and a hair salon. The buildings also house a computer repair and advice depot, and a great collection of clothes and gift shops.
This site will suit outdoorsy types with its two miles of specially created footpaths that thread their way around 250 acres of farm and woodland. The onsite golf course and coarse fishing lakes will also appeal. And if you need to relax after a day outdoors make use of the luxury heated indoor swimming pool and sauna facilities.
The touring area does not disappoint either and has had a number of improvements over the years: more fully serviced pitches have been added for 2007, raised flower beds are also a new addition.
This site’s breathtaking location, top-notch facilities and well-kept pitches make it a worthy winner of the UK's top award!
20 Apr 2006
Practical Caravans Top 100 Parks Awards 2006
Situated in the picturesque Dee Valley, the Plassey Leisure Park is a site with
a difference. It features a series of Edwardian farm buildings, converted to house superb facilities: handmade crafts and boutique shops, a brewery producing its own real ale,
a farmhouse ice-cream shop,
a garden centre and a beauty salon, set in gardens that benefit from sumptuous views.
Families with children will find that there is plenty to keep them occupied here. The indoor heated swimming pool is open from May to September, and other attractions include a games room, a sauna, golf, table-tennis, and two miles of lovely nature trails. For the less energetic there are also two clubhouses and
a licensed restaurant on-site.
Located within 250 acres of farmland, the pitches on this family-owned site are spacious, level and set around the perimeter of each field. Trees, shrubs and hedges are strategically placed around the site to offer a peaceful feel to the area.
There is a centrally heated amenity building with baby and disabled facilities, and individual washrooms, all of which are kept very clean. Two more amenity blocks and a shower block are located elsewhere, although the shower block could benefit from having its own washbasins.
And don’t imagine that there is any lack of activities away from the site. Local attractions range from castles at Chirk, Powys, Beaumaris and Caernarfon to steeplechases at Bangor-on-Dee and horse-drawn barge trips along the Llangollen canal. You can sample the delights of the nearby historic cities of Chester and Shrewsbury, too. For an
all-action break, Plassey Leisure Park is the perfect site.
