Conwy Touring Park - North Wales

This was the first place we ever took our Dandy.
Head into conwy and turn left at the first small round-a-bout (side of the castle) under the castle wall, just keep following the road past some houses, a small supermarket (expensive) on your right, the road takes a sharp left continue up hill and its on the left. It is a very steep entrance with a sharp bend halfway up.(first gear in our 1.6 at the time) Reception is just at the top, you have to book in to get a code for the barriers.

This site is massive but during the week it can be very quiet and peacefull, you will get a map and a bin bag on arrival, you will be allocated a pitch but if not happy with it they will often change it if you call them when you find a pitch that you want (it is easier to call them than go back to the office due to the size of the site)

The toilet facilities are great, with lots of blocks scattered all over you never have to go far, they also have modern showers in these blocks and a drying room in between the mens and ladies, this room has hangers and a heater.

Washing up facilities are outside the loo and shower blocks but under cover and you will also find freezers next to these, people tend to put food in plastic bags with initials on and no one had a problem with this, we just popped our ice blocks in a bag with initials on.

There is a pub but this is not open all season, there is also a chippy (we didnt use this as we like the one in conwy - Galleon)
The site is in sections and each section is surrounded by tree's. We have been a few times and found weekends too busy but like to go during the week, some of the pitches can get water logged and some are a lot smaller than others (same price though)
Kids love it here, there are lots of rabbits hopping around and squirels every where and plenty of things for children to explore including a large playground.
Vans are not allowed on this site at all, there are skips for rubbish that can get too full at weekends so rubbish gets blown around. Never leave a rubbish bag outside as the magpies tend to rip them open and scatter it all over.

I would not recommend this site for people with walking difficulties due to some steep inclines to the loo's on some sections. If you have children give it a go and if you want a quiet mid-week break its nice, but they do tend to shut some of the toilet blocks towards the end of the season so you have a bit of a walk to the nearest. Do not forget a torch, it gets very dark here and I did once get lost in the dark by going down the wrong track and ended up lost in woodland for quite a while.

The site is within a few minutes drive (or a half hour walk) of Conway Castle and Conway centre, there is a Tesco close enough and a great bus service that stops just outside the campsite the marina at conway is lovely and you can get a nice meal in lots of places. Conway beach is also only a short drive, as is Llandudno and Colwyn Bay.

This is a nice place but its spooky at night because its so dark and all the trees make a noise that gos around them, if you go make sure you take a torch. Its a massive site with lots of little bays with trees around each bay.
