This is a particular favourite of ours locally.

Just a short drive out of town up into the hills above Abergele it is such a beautiful drive to get to the village of Llanfair Talhaiarn.

Bit of a mouthful and don’t ask me to pronounce it, please!!

Better known (thank God!) as Llanfair TH.

A lovely little pub/restaurant set at the side of a small stream with a lovely beer garden.

The food is excellent with good prices.

We have been several times over the years and always have excellent service with top quality food.

So, went out for Cath’s Birthday meal last night to the Pen y Bont in Abergele.

We decided to walk up, cold but only took about 15 minutes.

It was really busy when we got there so good job we booked!

We sat at our table straight away and we could order drinks from there instead of waiting at the bar.

It isn’t your high-end menu but looked really good home-style food.

I thought I would attach photos of the food as well as it looked so good.

I must say all of the food we had was excellent quality and the chunky chips were amazing!

As we were eating a singer was setting up, he was brilliant – a Michael Buble type singer.

We were too stuffed to have a sweet!

9 of us went and it cost £45 a couple with drinks and tip, we all thought this was good value!

All in all a great evening with great food and entertainment.

We would definitely go again 👍

We are nearly there!! – Bowling Green and Pavilion update

We should be finished ready for the park opening on 1st March. The Bowling Green has been completely ripped up and re-laid with the best root one soil and professional standard turf. The turf has had a few months now to establish itself. Just prior to us closing the park in November we took delivery of a new summer house which will form part of our new bowls ‘pavilion’. We owe a massive ‘thank you’ to some of our customers who built the summer house. “Thank You Gents”, oh and thank you to some of the ladies who kept us fed and watered!! During the winter months we have had a new large decking area supplied by North Wales Plastics from Abergele. Once finished the deck will surround the summer house and provide us with a large seating/viewing area which will be used for bowls events and general social area. The project is now just about complete just the finishing touches to do. We have invested a large amount of money, time and effort into this project which will give us and our customers years of enjoyment. We will be having a brand new program of friendly competitions during the year. We will also be organising our grand bowling green opening event for our customers. Just a few photos taken this morning, more to follow when it is complete :

Bowling Green Redevelopment – Update

We have had a bowling green here at Pentre Mawr for many years now. Recently we have been unfortunate enough to have many problems with it. As we have had such a good year we have decided to invest a substantial amount into its redevelopment. Work will begin on Monday 22nd September to remove 8″ of soil. The bad soil will be replaced with a high quality growing medium called ‘Root Zone’ – this will enable to new turf to establish itself and to provide the best environment for the roots to grow. Once the root zone has been graded to the correct level to give a crown we will then lay the best quality bowling green turf. This together with a professional automatic sprinkler system will give us one of the best quality bowling greens around and yes you are right, it will remain free to use by all of our customers. A program of friendly competitions and get togethers is being put together for next year. Please keep an eye out for regular picture updates.

The following is a photo taken now :

Hopefully we will have some good weather to carry out the ground work!!

Well work is well underway:

MacMillan Coffee Morning Success!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who joined us in our MacMIllan Coffee Morning fund raising event. The weather was great as it has been over the past weeks!! There was an abundance of cake as well as tea, coffee and soft drinks. Thank you to all that either made or donated a cake for the day, you can tell from the pictures how much there was. We are only a small park but we managed to raise a total of £400 to go directly to the MacMillan charity. Below are some photos of the morning:

Well we did it again!

One of the best 5 star caravan parks in North Wales

Things just seem to get better and better here at Pentre Mawr!!

The sun is shining and it’s lovely and warm, but aside from that we had a surprise visitor yesterday in the form of a Wales Tourist Board Inspector!

The tourist board inspectors make random visits to parks throughout the year to assess them for their Star quality rating.

We have been part of the Star Grading Scheme for the last 20 years and, since we were inspected for the first time back in 1994, we have retained a Five Star rating every year!

In 1996 we were entered into the national competition for “Most Improved Park” and were able to gain runner up.

I’m pleased to say that yet again we have kept our coveted Five Stars yet again!

Even after 20 years this award is something very special to us and something we do not take for granted.

We are only a small park but we always strive to be the best and receiving the Five Stars tells us that we must be doing something right!

Is Pentre Mawr Right For Me ?

Ever visited a caravan park and thought “Is this place right for me?”

Here at Pentre Mawr we cater mainly for more mature customers, with a big percentage of our customers being semi or fully retired.

Children are welcome but we do not cater directly for them,  as we do not have a play area and unfortunately we do not allow bicycles or ball games on the park.

Not every caravan park suits every customer, and if loud noisy bars and clubs are what you are looking for then that is absolutely fine but Pentre Mawr is certainly not the right park for you!

Our owners like to relax in our safe and secure community environment, where they know their neighbours, can pass the time of day with other owners, tend to their gardens or just simply relax on their decking in the fresh coastal air and lovely sunshine.

If this sounds like your cup of tea (don’t forget the kettle is always on in our office!) then drop us a line by clicking on our contact page.
