The site is beautiful surrounded by woodland and hills but in my opinion the best physical feature is the river running through. It is incredibly peaceful and restorative for those with busy lives.
It surely is testimonial in itself that I have just bought my fourth caravan at Dolhendre. My family and I came in circa 1982 when caravans had gas mantles but neither shower nor loo. The children thought it a wonderful adventure to get up in the middle of the night for the short walk to the toilet block. Lots of walking, steam trains, beaches, countryside and the occasional castle. After a 4-5 year gap due to a cricketing son we returned this time however to upgraded amenities and modernised caravans. Lovely!
My grown up family also own a van at Dolhendre and I now watch my grandchildren play as my own did.
So what is it like three caravans later? The site is beautiful surrounded by woodland and hills but in my opinion the best physical feature is the river running through. It is incredibly peaceful and restorative for those with busy lives. It has always proven safe and more importantly fun for children. Obviously the attractions in North Wales have not changed over time but again in my opinion it is one of the most underrated landscapes in the UK.
One final thing, which to me is very important, my family has made many friends on the park over the years even though the population changes from time to time. A few years ago my husband passed away but I was so comfortable with the site, the owners and the residents I kept my then van, bought my new van (March this year) and spend most of the summer here.
I’ve seen people come and go but without exception new caravan owners see this as a beautiful, natural site with a welcoming & friendly group of people.
