Emral Gardens Touring Caravan Park offers a small and secluded getaway exclusively for adults on their caravan holidays in Wales.
This adults-only, dog-friendly campsite has only 20 pitches, all of which are hardstanding, and both caravans and motorhomes are welcome. The caravan park is located in the grounds of the Emral estate, although the original house no longer stands. The campsite is partially surrounded by mature woodland, the unspoilt natural environments near Wrexham perfect for walks.
Also worthy of mention is the fact that Emral Gardens Touring Caravan Park features in the Top 100 Sites Guide 2020, which is complied by Caravan Sitefinder in association with Practical Motorhome and Practical Caravan magazines.
At this caravan park in Wales, all the pitches have 16-amp electric hook-ups and fresh drinking water hook-ups, as well as grey waste water disposal, digital television outlets and Wi-Fi access. A new wash block has been installed close to the pitches and has underfloor heating for the two toilets and two showers, and a chemical disposal point. There is also a new laundry and washing-up facility on site.
Dogs are permitted Emral Gardens Touring Caravan Park near Wrexham in North Wales, provided they are well behaved, their owners clean up after them and the dogs remain on their leads when in the main camping area. There is an adjoining fenced area on site that allows dog owners to exercise their four-legged friends off the lead.
The campsite also has a secure caravan storage facility, which costs £240 for six months, and £420 for 12. The storage area is a walled garden which has been granted a bronze award from the Caravan Storage Site Owners' Association for its security provisions.

Guests of the campsite are also welcome to fish in the Emral Brook, not far from the park. Those wishing to go further afield may wish to look into fishing on the river Dee at Bangor-on-Dee, which is two miles away.

Beautiful site but an absolute nightmare of an approach road. Potholed dirt track is being kind. The site itself is well maintained with good layout and quiet (apart from wildlife). 2 toilets, 2 showers, not gendered, basic but clean.

So sorry about the drive. It is well maintained but when we get wet weather I am afraid our farm business and mares and foals need attending. They don't like the wet weather either. As for the noisy wildlife…sorry again but that is the rural countryside for you!
