Spotlight on: Bron-Y-Wendon Touring Park, Conwy
This five-star campsite is located on the north Wales coastline with lovely panoramic views from the pitches, out across the sea.
Bron-Y-Wendon Holiday Park is set between the railway line and the main A55, but I feel the coastal view, standard of facilities and ease of location for exploring the area, far outweigh the slight traffic noise that may be heard.
The open-all-year campsite consists of terraced all-electric pitches that overlook the sea. Super pitches have the benefit of their own water and grey waste points. The majority of pitches are hardstanding, but there are some grass pitches available, too. A facilities block is located at reception, where there are heated bathrooms, a disabled toilet and a launderette, as well as basic washing-up facilities and a grey waste disposal point outside. There is also another toilet and shower block further down the site and a large children’s play area closer to the site entrance.
The village of Llanddulas has a pleasant pub (The Valentine Inn), as well as an Indian restaurant, a fish and chip shop and a petrol station. There’s also an excellent bus service to Llandudno, which is well worth visiting – especially the Great Orme Country Park and nature reserve. Hop on the cable car or tramway for a leisurely ride to the top!
A 15-minute drive away is the market town of Conwy, where you’ll find its historic castle that boasts World Heritage Site status. If you don’t fancy taking the motorhome into the town (there are designated parking bays at Morfa Bach Car Park LL32 8FZ), then public transport from Llanddulas village can get you there in around an hour. A short walk down the lane from the site leads to Llandulas Beach (there is also a car park here) and from here you can access a paved coastal path and Cycle Route 5 leading to Colwyn Bay in one direction and then to Abergele in the other.
