A sheltered site, with cheerful hydrangeas at the entrance and within a short drive of several of Angleseys excellent beaches. Theres something special about an island holiday. Anglesey has its own atmosphere, even its own climate, and the views across to the mountains of Snowdonia are impressive. It can lay claim to some of the most varied and beautiful coastal scenery and is an unspoilt island with plenty of room to walk, ride, sail and swim, leaving the crowds behind. The beaches are great for the family and nearby Traeth Bychan offers boat launching facilities. This part of the world also provides a good stopover for travellers to and from Ireland.Open from:

We have been to Cae Mawr three times. On our latest visit in July 2019 the site in general was not up to the standard we have seen on previous visits.
The grass was long and particularly untidy round some of the seasonal pitched units. There were also areas of grass where groundsheets had not been lifted. On previous visits the managers have been very proactive in making sure this is done. However, to the present team this appears not to be important.
It was clear from the moment we arrived that the current management team were not having a good day. And it was about to get considerably worse.
Whilst being very careful not to hit a very large and badly sited motorhome on a bend I didn’t spot my caravan had clipped a wooden log on the opposite side of the road. This rolled under my van ripping the waste pipe mountings from underneath.
I reported this to the site manager, who was very quick to come round and try to fix the damage. He was equally quick to remove the offending log to the edge of the site where it remained throughout our visit.
On returning home I wrote to the Club to ask what their policy was on using logs, presumably to discourage vehicles from running over the grass. Some 4 weeks later their reply took me rather by surprise.
There was no attempt to answer the simple question I had asked. They were, however quick to praise the site manager for his help in trying to fix the damage and point out “this isn’t something we would accept liability for”. They were also keen to state the “responsibility falls with the driver who is in care and control of the vehicle to ensure that they can safely complete any manoeuvre before proceeding with the route they are taking around the site”. The fact that, on this occasion the route was a hazard seems irrelevant.
This raises the question as to who is responsible for the safe siting of units and obstacles so drivers can manoeuvre round the site safely? On previous visits to Cae Mawr, towing a twin axle van we have been asked not to pitch on this particular part of the site. The Clubs claims that no other incidents had been reported. However tyre tracks appearing where the log had been clearly showed other drivers had run over the grass whilst manoeuvring past the motorhome.
Two questions, in my opinion still remain unanswered. Do site managers have any responsibility in making sure units are sited so drivers can manoeuvre round the site safely? And what measures are in place to make sure any ‘obstacles' cannot damage people or property?
We pay a lot of money to use Caravan on Motorhome sites and, quite frankly expect better than this.

This is my favourite site above all others.It is so peaceful that I begin to relax as soon as I arrive.We have been visiting here for 20 years and everywhere is always spotlessly clean,tidy,beautifully landscaped and very welcoming.The site has had several wardens over the years but each one has kept up the high standards of the previous one.
This lovely site together with the beautiful island og Anglesey make the perfect holiday
