Bron-Y-Wendon Holiday Park in Llanddulas

Post by MrsCC on Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:03 pm

We stayed a couple of nights at Bron-Y-Wendon Holiday Park in Llanddulas just outside Colwyn Bay. Website looked lovely and we thought we would treat ourselves. content The site is within easy reach of Llandudno and Conwy both lovely places to visit.

In Llandudno we had a trip up and down the tramway to The Great Orme which was very enjoyable and well worth doing unless you are fit and very active and fancy the walk up! jogging Incredible views across Snowdonia and Anglesey.

Llandudno has a fantastic promenade which is a pleasant walk away from the town; it also has a very long pier which dogs are allowed on – a rarity in our experience. walkies For shoppers, Llandudno has a huge array of shops catering for all tastes. Oh and don’t forget looking around the town for the wood carvings of Alice in wonderland characters – brilliant carvings. At first we didn’t know the connection with the Alice in wonderland characters but have since discovered that a young girl called Alice Liddell visited Llandudno with her family during her childhood summers, and the family friend Charles Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) used her as the subject for Alice in Wonderland and "Through the Looking Glass".

Conwy is steep in history – fantastic views and fantastic castle. The Castle walls have walk ways on the top which you can walk along high up above the roof tops – not for the faint hearted. And don’t forget to visit the smallest house in Great Britain just along the quay, past the muscle museum! muscles

Back at the campsite, the reception staff were friendly and one showed us to our pitch – she was however unsure which way we should park (reverse in or drive in), where are EHU and water points were scratch head . We soon sorted this for ourselves and then realised there were no dedicated motorhome service points. The pitches - there appeared to be barely any pitches that were level and yet all pitches are hard standing – so no excuse.

The view from the campsite is quite spectacular depending on where you are situated on site – we were fortunate the first nights – great views over Colwyn Bay, but on the second night just a view of 3 American style RVs –huge and a view blocker! Which was disappointing. so_sad

The facilities – well they were undergoing renovation. No mention of this on the website only after booking in and getting our pitch was it mentioned. The facilities that were available – men’s block was in need of updating – dark and dowdy. The ladies were passable – the main ladies block consisted of toilet cubicles, sinks and a closed off area (with a dirty sheet!) for the showers which were undergoing modernisation.

Ladies were able so to use the 2 showers adjacent to the games room – this appeared to have recently been updated but there was still work to finish off with missing wall tiles apparent - no mop to wipe the floor after using showers so you have to trample on everyone else’s dirt. The only sink in this block was in the toilet cubical.

There is a laundry room on site for those that need it. Unfortunately there is no shop! Such a shame, but the local village is only a 10 minute walk away with a fine fish and chip shop which we sampled one evening.

Outside the campsite and within 5 minutes walk is the coastline a lovely area to walk your dog and have an evening stroll. Even a few wild campers were there, they looked settled for the night despite the “no overnight camping allowed signs”

At the bottom of the site is a railway line and the high speed trains run very frequently and are quite noisy, but the worst noise is the traffic from the nearby A55 – constant droning of vehicles all day long f1 especially lorries about 1030pm and in the early hours of the morning! so_sad I understand this is due to a nearby ferries docking and lorries coming off the ferries – don’t forget your ear plugs.

The cost - we paid was £21 a night plus £1 for a dog – top money, and despite the five star rating it didn’t quiet meet our expectation - and therefore in our opinion this is over rated .

Would we stay on this campsite again girl-thinking – probably not, but we will be visiting Llandudno again. up!
