The Best Meals in North Wales

One of our aims at Plassey is to offer you the best holiday in North Wales, and to do this we know that our food offering has to be top notch. Holidays are about relaxing and enjoying yourself, and we all know that if our tummies are happy, then we are happy! Traditionally in Wales, we live off the land and enjoy simple, wholesome fare which was originally designed to feed the appetites of those working the land – so no small portions here!

Being situated near to Wrexham means that we are within travelling distance of some of the best restaurants in North Wales, such as The Pant Yr Ochan in Gresford and Croes Howell in Rosset. The proliferation of restaurants in North Wales, mixed with our love of traditional Welsh food means that we have worked hard on the food in our own restaurant, club-house, and deli. Our restaurant, The Plassey Bar & Restaurant, focuses on freshly prepared a la carte food with a local flavour. The menu features plates such as, smoked haddock fish cakes, homemade steak and ale pie, and the chef’s special spiced orange cake.

We have recently refurbished our Golf Clubhouse, so the Haybank Clubhouse & Grill now offers guests the chance to sample some amazing local produce cooked on our fantastic Inka charcoal BBQ grill. We even have an authentic pizza oven too, where we hand make our own pizzas from scratch! Tucking into a perfectly grilled burger on our stunning patio is an experience you don’t want to miss out on.

Of course, Wales is famous for its lamb, cheese, and who could forget the leek? There are plenty of great local food producers and venues nearby if you fancy trying to recreate a great Welsh dish such as Cawl – a stew made with lamb and root vegetables. Just up the road from us in Conway, you will find a former winner of Britain’s Best Butcher at Edwards of Conway. This is a traditional butcher’s shop where you can buy Welsh lamb and Welsh beef, as well as loads of different flavoured sausages – definitely worth a visit.

For great vegetables, you can’t go far wrong with Hooton’s Homegrown – a family farm based on Anglesey whose produce is sold at their farm shops in Brynsiencyn and Caernarfon. All of their produce, including Anglesey garlic, is carefully handpicked, butchered and prepared on site, ensuring quality, freshness, and a better flavour. You can even try before you buy at their on-site cafe!

You don’t have to go that far to get great local produce though, as right at the end of our driveway is the fabulous Lewis’s Farm Shop. This family run farm has been producing fantastic beef and lamb for years, and now also sell locally produced pork, chicken and eggs as well. You’ll be delighted to hear that they won the Wrexham Sausage Championships three years on the run, and with 12 varieties to go at they are sure to have the perfect sausage you need to make your breakfast extra special! On top of this, they have a great selection of vegetables, award-winning pies and really delicious cakes too.

If all of this has got your mouth watering and you want to experience the best that caravan holidays in North Wales can offer, then get in touch today on 01978 780 277 or drop us an email at enquiries@plassey.com

Let’s Go Glamping at Plassey!

As one of the leading North Wales holiday parks, we are constantly striving to find ways to enhance your stay with us, and this is why we are thrilled to announce that during this winter we will be working on a range of 18 Deluxe Glamping Pods which we hope to have open for business in the spring of 2017.

Glamping, also known as luxury or glamorous camping, is a global trend that has quickly risen in popularity over the last couple of years. With luxury glamping, there is no tent to pitch and no sleeping bag to unroll – glamping in North Wales is a way of experiencing the outdoors without sacrificing any of urban life’s luxuries.

To this end, Plassey has planned a development of 18 bespoke deluxe camping pods which will all be fitted with their own en-suite bathroom featuring a toilet, washbasin and shower. We plan of having two sizes of pod available – the ‘family’ pod which can sleep up to 5 people and the ‘couples’ pod for a maximum of 2 people. Our aim is to offer you the flexibility and lifestyle that you are used to throughout the rest of the holiday park.

So, why are we so excited to be offering you the chance to experience North Wales glamping?

It’s Environmentally Friendly

Being environmentally friendly is very important to us at Plassey, and so we will ensure that our glamping pods are up to the latest environmental standards in heating and insulation. To do this, we plan to use a ground source heat pump to supply all of our heating and hot water requirements for the Pods. The Pods will also be constructed with natural materials throughout, and will have insulated walls, floors, and ceilings with double glazing as well.

Closer to Nature

Luxury glamping lets you experience nature and connect with it in an unforgettable way. Take a break from your busy and hectic life in the city and escape to somewhere where you can relax and recharge your batteries. Instead of waking up and stepping out of your door into the grime of a city, you can wake up, step outside your pod and breathe in the fresh air and some of the most outstanding scenery in North Wales. All of our pods will be south-facing, giving you panoramic views of the local area for a total sense of tranquillity. The area where the pods are situated will also have its own private entrance with separate car parking and the whole area will be landscaped with specimen trees and shrubs as well.

Endless Adventures

Going glamping in North Wales also means that you are opening yourself up to experience all of the various activities that North Wales has to offer. Whatever you passion, be it hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, bird watching, visiting historical sites or just shopping, North Wales has it all! Knowing that you can relax in comfort at the end of the day makes luxury glamping the holiday for you!
