Bodnant Caravan Park Llanrwst, Conwy, Wales, LL26 0SD (Location map)
1st March to 31st October (approx.)
Located on the eastern border of Snowdonia National Park, Bodnant Caravan Park is the winner of the ‘Wales in Bloom’ contest for caravan and touring parks the consecutively for the past 26 years. The family and pet friendly site is open from the beginning of March until the end of October.
Bodnant caters to touring caravans, motorhomes, and tents. The site has two holiday caravans available for hire.
Bodnant is located in the scenic surrounds of the Conwy Valley. The park's guests come back year after year, due in no small part to the quality of service and the whole holiday experience.
The area is surrounded by trees, providing excellent views as well as an instinctive jump-off for embarking on an exploration of the natural beauty of the whole area.
There are plenty of amenities on site, including many child friendly facilities. There is a farm containing, among other animals, sheep, hens, and geese all of which young ones can get up close and personal to. There are wide varieties of bird species, inluding woodpeckers, herons, buzzards, and sparrow hawks all regularly inhabiting the park.
Great for intrepid hikers, Snowdonia offers tough terrain, the climb of Mount Snowdon itself is definitely a great challenge. It is a tough day out, but a rewarding one, too.
There are a number of culture and heritage sites situated nearby Bodant. Castles, botanical gardens, and the market town of Llanwrst offer a friendly change of pace from the caravan park itself.
The Conwy Valley is a place of unsurpassed beauty clothed, it is said, in every shade of green imaginable. Despite the farming of its lands, the planting of great swathes of forest, building of roads and the railway the valley has remained relatively unchanged throughout the centuries. Apart from the natural beauty of its rivers, lakes and vistas of the rugged Snowdonia mountains there are numerous places of interest to visit during your stay.
Llanrwst, the 'capital' of the Conwy Valley is an ancient market town built on the banks of the River Conwy. The ancient three-arched stone bridge leads into a town made up of narrow streets offering a plethora of shops selling goods from everyday needs to home baked bread and Welsh delicacies. There is something to suit all palates in the variety of restaurants, bistros, cafes, take-aways and olde worlde tea-rooms.
There is a wealth of culture and heritage in the Conwy Valley, including the following:
St. Crwst's Church, Llanrwst (½ mile)
15th century church with beautiful carved rood screen, effigy of Hywel Coetmor and stone coffin of Llywelyn the Great.

As we pulled onto the site it was a picture, the flowers and garden beautifuly cared for....very inviting. BUT we found the shower and toilet block a real let down they really do need up dating.It would also have been nice to have had some form of contact with the owners. The pitches are a lovely size and well cared for.

Didn't stay at the site but found customer service to be very poor my wife contacted to book and was told someone would call back later which never happened. she called back the following day and booked a pitch but due to unforeseen circumstances she called back within 24 hours to cancel and although she was offered the chance to use the deposit for alternative dates. this option was not available to us due to my wife's employment I have since emailed them to express my disappointment and ask them to refund my deposit but after 3 days I have still not had a response needless to say I wont be recommending this site to anyone

I would recomend this site to anyone it is well laid out with ample room between pitches. Care and attention to the flower beds and tubs was there for all to see. All age groups are made welcome, children have a play area and dogs have their own walking area. The toilets and shower blocks were clean and tidy. My stay here was short but very enjoyable. A big thankyou to Mrs Jenkins for helping us out in our hour of need. bodnant Caravan Park, Llanrwst, Conwy
