Camping and caravan holidays in Wales have long been popular and Penrhyn Bay Caravan Park, tucked away on the far north west corner of the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) is a great opportunity to get away from it all and have a fun filled, family holiday.
This rural, family run, dog friendly campsite, set in 32 acres, is a four-star park. The sea surrounds the campsite on three sides and there's a big, sandy beach at one side. There are also sheltered coves where you and your family can enjoy bathing in safety.
Penrhyn Bay Caravan Park welcomes guests in touring caravans, motorhomes and tents. Fully serviced pitches with electric hook-ups, water and grey waste connections are available, as well as non-serviced pitches.
On-site amenities include a modern washblock with central heating and disabled facilities, places to do your dishwashing and laundry, and a shop stocked with everyday essentials as well as Camping Gaz and Calor Gas.
There's also plenty here to keep you busy on your camping and caravan holidays. Penrhyn Bay Caravan Park has an all-weather tennis court, a games room, a play area for children and a heated, indoor swimming pool (a small fee applies). This large park has been open since 1955 and many guests have been back time and again.
Perched on the coast, looking out across the Irish Sea, if you're into watersports, there are a great many activities you could try on your holidays in Wales. Enjoy kayaking, waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing and much more. Penrhyn Bay Caravan Park also has its own slipway for launching small craft of all kinds. If you want to get active but stay dry (although we can't guarantee the weather!), you could play a round of golf, go horse riding, cycling, walking or climbing – and much more.
The village of Llanfwrog is less than a mile from this caravan park and approximately four miles north east of Holyhead. Indeed, Holyhead is only about a 20-minute drive from this campsite and from here you can catch a boat to Dublin.
You'll want to explore the magnificent natural beauty of this area on your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays, so why not head to South Stack Lighthouse, South Stack Cliffs RSPB Reserve, or Holyhead Breakwater Country Park, while Holyhead Mountain is the island's highest point.
In addition, the A55, the main road that runs across the Isle of Anglesey, before crossing the Menai Strait on the Britannia Bridge to link the island with the mainland, is easily accessible from Penrhyn Bay Caravan Park, so although if you've pitched here there's no doubt you're getting away from it all, you're also well connected, so you can tour the island, getting out and about to see the sights with ease. Britannia Bridge, designed by Robert Stephenson, is one of two bridges that crosses the Menai Strait, the other being the Thomas Telford designed Menai Suspension Bridge, along which the A5 runs.
If you loving walking, this is one of the best ways to explore the island. The 125-mile Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is primarily for walkers, but some stretches can be enjoyed by those on two wheels or on horseback. And if you're feeling a little less energetic, the whole route can be travelled using public transport.
This campsite has an indoor swimming pool, a tennis court, a games room and a children's play area which has been refurbished for 2015.
