Kingsbridge Caravan and Camping Park Beaumaris, Isle of Anglesey, Wales, LL58 8LR (Location map)
1st March to 31st October
A quiet, family-run campsite in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Kingsbridge Caravan and Camping Park's philosophy is to work with and to enhance and preserve its stunning natural setting.
It is therefore perhaps not too surprising to learn that this campsite on the Isle of Anglesey won the best green site award when the Top 100 Sites Guide 2014 was compiled by Caravan Sitefinder, along with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines. The campsite has also won a Gold David Bellamy Award for Conservation and a Green Dragon Award for the Environment, as well as receiving a four-star rating from the Wales Tourist Board.
The Isle of Anglesey is a popular touring destination. Kingsbridge Caravan and Camping Park is a tranquil place, and lighting is kept at a minimum so you can star-gaze to your heart’s content.
The site covers 14 acres and has 50 touring pitches, all with 10A electric hook-up, and both caravans and motorhomes are welcome. There are also 50 tent pitches, as well as two four-berth static caravans on site. All bedding is provided for the static caravans, but towels are not. Dogs aren't allowed in the static caravans, smoking also not permitted.
Elsewhere, dogs are allowed at this campsite, so long as they are kept on a short lead – owners must clean up after their dogs, too.
The campsite's shop stocks all the everyday essentials, plus caravan accessories and kit for the beach, and there's a Calor/Camping Gaz stockist. There is free hot water in the two clean and tidy washrooms complete with underfloor heating. The male and female washblocks have shaver points and coin-operated hairdryers, and there is a mother and baby room in the female block. Dishwashing facilities and free freezers for ice blocks and food storage are available, too.
The owners pride themselves on the campsite’s low impact on the environment. The buildings are fitted with low-energy lighting, the heating is solar-powered and guests are asked to use the campsite's recycling facilities.
There is a children's play area as well as a large area dedicated to ball games. There is also some storage space for boats.
A post office and general store are about 10 minutes from the campsite by foot, while the park also has good public transport links, great if you want to leave your car and caravan or motorhome on site and head off exploring. You might also want to go to the market – there is one every Thursday and Saturday in Llangefni, which is about a 30-minute drive from the campsite.
Camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Wales have been popular for a long time, and you can use Kingsbridge as your base for your Welsh adventure. This campsite is on the south east coast of Anglesey, about a quarter of an hour by car from Menai Bridge. The nearest town is Beaumaris, less than a 10-minute drive away and on the coast, overlooking the Menai Straight.
There are so many things to do on Anglesey. The South Stack Cliffs RSPB Reserve sits on Holy Island, on the Isle of Anglesey's north west coast, and while you're there, you can visit South Stack Lighthouse. If you like gardens, you could while away the hours at Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens on your motorhome, camping and caravan holidays. Of course, there are many beaches to choose from on Anglesey, including Newborough Beach, Lligwy Beach and Rhosneigr Beach, and particularly close to this campsite is Beaumaris Gaol.
So if you're looking for some holiday accommodation on Anglesey, why not check out Kingsbridge Caravan and Camping Park.
Kingsbridge is 2 miles from the ancient town of Beaumaris with its historic Castle, Goal and Courthouse. Evenings may be enjoyed by sampling one of the many and varied eating establishments.
The Menai Straits with its backdrop of the the Snowdonia Mountain range offers a challenge to any water sports enthusiast.

All I can say is that I think the privilege of being receiving the David Bellamy has given the owners an arrogance I have thankfully not had the displeasure of encountering before. The reasons for my disconcertion is down to a few things but mainly one incident involving my partners daughter and friends being harassed and intimidated due to talking after the eleven o'clock watershed. The male owner stood outside the awning in the dark staring in and only said something when he startled one of the girls. He then said in an aggressive manner 'do you own this caravan?' He knew full well the answer, he told them to shut up and said they would have to tow the caravan the next day, then disappeared. He returned with his two sons, bearing in mind they were not disrespectful in any way to him, with his two sons at his side he asked if her mother had explained the rules etc. She said yes but felt very intimidated and perturbed by his demeanour and wondered why he had felt the need to bring his sons, after all they were a small group of feeble females. They were asked to contact us at home to which he replied ' I'm not phoning anyone ' . The next morning they were told to leave and told to tell us to collect the caravan as our contract had been terminated. When I got there no-one came anywhere near! Was this because I wasn't a defenceless female in the dark feeling vulnerable? I don't know. The site itself is picturesque but the toilets were sometimes full of excrement and the showers grass and insects. They on occasion had a pungent smell emanating from them when outside also, the refuge area was insufficient, there was an area 6' x 6' for all the tents and tourers to use with not enough categorisation for recycling, the facilities for emptying your toilet cassette were pityful and somewhat unhygienic. Overall a very unpleasant experience. Intimidation, arrogance and underhanded tactics spring to mind.

Booked for seven nights - but stayed for eight without problem. This is a family operated site - the owner-operators provide an exemplary friendly atmosphere for those who wish to enjoy the highest quality camping experience in this quiet rural location which is within easy reach of all parts of Anglesey and North Wales. The site is disciplined for everyone's enjoyment and relaxation - quiet order after 11.00pm - excellent. The key feature, after the location, must be the excellent shower block facilities which are heated, well serviced and kept very clean. Probably the best we've experienced anywhere in the UK and Europe. Facilities include two shower blocks; a small children's play area and a small shop with a wide range of pertinent products including gas supplies. Kingsbridge provides a range of pitches - the majority of which have electric points: a facilities-free 'back to nature' field surrounded by bushes and trees; an 'adults' quiet meadow field well equipped with hard-standings for touring vans and two family fields which are also well equipped with electric points. There is a discrete static caravan park within the site. A few tent pitches are on gently sloping ground which makes things interesting but this is easily corrected. The site is run in sympathy with the rural environment, energy and nature conservation. It is, in short, simply brilliant.

The owners run a tight ship which means for campers wanting a safe and tranquil site a thoroughly enjoyable experience. If people want to camp in a non regulated and noisy site then I suggest they go elsewhere. We have been visiting the site for years and love the quiet, safe environment it offers. The facilities are clean and well maintained and its environmental sensitivity is an added bonus.

I want to thank the owners for responding when a family group who were disturbing me and the other guests making a lot of noise at about midnight, Children were screaming, As the site has the condition of quiet after 11pm, It seems they were asked to leave.

I have just returned from kingsbridge caravan site with my family and friends, there were four families in total each with young children. The owners were the rudest most miserable people I have ever had the misfortunate of meeting. The woman would not allow my partner to park the caravan until he had paid, did she think he was going to run off somewhere? Her attitude was terrible. The toilet blocks smelt of sewerage as you walked past and were always dirty, hair on shower walls, cobwebs, empty containers in showers and grass all over the shower floors with nothing to clean the showers with and I had to queue each morning. There was also a strict policy of no talking after 11pm and we felt like school children on a school trip, one poor family who had young children were even asked to leave as their children were unsettled after "lights out". This is in no way a child or dog friendly site and one I would avoid at all costs there is much nicer out there.

VERY WELL RUN WITH FRIENDLY AND VERY HELPFUL OWNERS WHO SET OUR CARAVAN UP ON THE PITCH FOR US (AND PULLED US OUT OF THE MUD 2 DAYS LATER) TOILET BLOCK WAS VERY CLEAN AND HAD CUBICLES WITH SINKS ONLY - PITCH WAS EXCELLANT APART FROM IT BEING MUDDY AFTER THE RAINS CAME THE ONLY LOW POINT WAS THAT WE COULDNT GET A PICTURE ON OUR TV FROM THE STATUS AERIAL ON THE VAN VERY ENJOYABLE WE WILL GO AGAIN
We have tried to find a way to review you on the CCC and your own websites without success – please accept the following about our stay (tent, Sat and Sun) earlier this week:
We were very impressed by the shower blocks as they were absolutely immaculate and we find this very rarely on a campsite. The showers themselves were hot and big enough to hang up clothes etc without them getting wet, again a rarity. The campsite was quiet at night and we found an easy way to walk into Beaumaris from it (over the golf course). Washing up facilities were good and we appreciated the environmental efforts.

I have just returned from spending 3 days at this campsite, staying in a static caravan with two friends. The setting of the campsite is absolutely beautiful; rural and secluded but very convenient for Beaumaris and the rest of the Island. We were on a short walking holiday and the campsite was ideally suited to our needs. The static caravans were spaciously situated with ample room and well tended lawns between each one allowing for privacy from other visitors though not from the two or three rabbits who paid us a visit each morning, playing on the grass! The shower/toilet blocks would not be out of place in a top hotel - whoever heard of campsite toilets with underfloor heating!! And everything was absolutely spotless and of a superb quality. The owners, Marian and Andy, were very friendly and extremely helpful and really made the effort to ensure we had everything we needed. They appeared to enjoy a good relationship with all the customers we encountered and the whole atmosphere was one of relaxation and friendliness. As it was the end of September there were few touring caravans and tents on the site but their pitches appeared to be spacious and in many cases provided with electric hook-ups. Apparently more are due to be installed before next season. There was also a pleasant play area for children. For those visitors without children there are adult only areas, which seemed like a good idea. All in all our experience at Kingsbridge Caravan site far exceeded any expectations we may have had and we shall be strongly recommending it to friends and family and will certainly be returning ourselves.
Absolutely nothing - except for the fact that we could not stay any longer!
Would they recommend this to a friend? yes
Would they stay here again? yes

We have just arrived home and packed away our camping gear, after a lovely Friday & Saturday night stay.
What a wonderful campsite! We have already recommended it to some friends and family and hope to return soon ourselves.
The facilities at your site are great, the standard is very high. We were extremely impressed.
Thank you for such a great place for us to escape to.
