Firstly and only good point was the idea for the key,having a key safe box outside, brilliant idea if you only have one key. Unfortunately it’s all down hill once your in that’s if you don’t get the knack how to actually get out the door. Luckily I got this quite easily shame about the husband. After 1/2 hr being there the gas bottle went and advised from the owners not to contact reception only to phone them, did this and went straight to answering service. Went in search for help where there was a lovely couple in v6 willing to help switched over the bottle thankfully my mother in law was at least warm being in her 80s and not having the recent weather freak thunder storms also plugged in oil heaters as no central heating in this caravan, it is very basic. Husband then checked smoke alarm and to our amazement there wasn’t even a battery in it, hence enter at your own risk, this made me fuming as we had our grandson with us only 7 months old. Phoned owners again and voicemail again felt like they’d got there payment and actually did not care, wouldn’t mind paid top price nearly £300 for a weekend. Toilet sink looked like it had practically fell off previously with the shoddy workmanship to restore it and cello tape to try and fix the toilet door handle. Some off the pans were not fit to cook with. Being health and safety aware the fire extinguisher was not up to standard as this hadn’t been checked since 2005 and never actually seen a fire blanket either. Surely there are regulations on leasing out caravans must maintain certain requirements. Will not be going back to this caravan, The site itself is very nice.
The caravan park is on the way out of town on the edge of Towyn away from the main drag and arcades, which is walking distance away. The site is quiet and peaceful with a trainline running along the back of the site with a gated crossing leading directly onto the beautiful sandy beach. You can walk all the way into Rhyl along the beach path which was glorious looking back over the welsh hills. There is a cafe on site which we didn't try and a Chinese takeaway across the road from the park which was packed with locals. There is also a small Co-op on the way to Abergele which has all the essentials and we would recommend Miss Owen's Café in the caravan park along the road for lunch or breakfast.
The caravan itself had everything we needed for our short break. The lounge area sofa is new but the rest of the soft furnishings and fittings are a little stained, worn and dated. The caravan was clean and the owner really helpful in the run up to our arrival. Self check-in worked a dream and we enjoyed exploring the local area before making our way to the ferry from Holyhead about 45 minutes drive from the caravan. We have stayed in much more modern caravans, but this had everything we needed for a short cheap stopover.
