Luxury Holiday Home Lifestyle

Ever thought about owning your own holiday home in the UK? Did you know that not only is Plassey one of the leading holiday parks in Wales with a swimming pool, but we also offer holiday homes for sale as well? Owning your own holiday home is actually much easier than you might think, and our team are here to help you every step of the way. We have existing homes for sale, or you can look at a bespoke holiday home instead.

There are thousands of reasons why owning a holiday home at Plassey may appeal to you, but here are our top reasons why you should:

 

Cost

Now this may come as a surprise, but owning a holiday home at Plassey can work out to be cheaper than taking a two-week holiday abroad every year.  Although the initial outlay will be more, you will end up spending more time at the park as you can holiday there anytime you like, meaning that the actual cost per holiday comes right down.

 

Friendly Community

Owning your own holiday home at Plassey also gives you access to the other holiday home owners, meaning you have the time to make friends and enjoy each other’s company at community events and enjoying the facilities on site. You can also make new friends amongst the other caravan and mobile home owners who stay on site from time to time.

 

Home Comforts

The holiday homes available at Plassey are homes from homes – decorated to your personal taste and with your own bits and bobs around to make you feel at home. They also feature fridge freezers, TVs and even fires to ensure you can relax as soon as you walk in the door.

 

Impulsive Holidays

One of the hardest parts of a holiday usually is planning it! You have to search around for the best deal, make sure everyone has time off, and ensure all your passports and so on are up to date. However, if you own your own holiday home at Plassey, you can leave all your essential items there, meaning all you have to do is jump in your car and drive here. No more worrying about baggage allowances and airport delays!

 

Pet-Friendly

The UK is a pet-friendly country and having to find a kennel or holiday accommodation for your loved one can add pounds onto your holiday. Plassey is a pet-friendly site, so all of this stress is taken away from you! Just pop your beloved pet in the car with you and come on down.

 

Proximity to Local Area

One of the most popular aspects of owning your own holiday home at Plassey is its fabulous location. Within the confines of the site, you have access to a retail village, a golf course, a nature reserve, bar and restaurant and there are lots of other fantastic places to visit in the local area.

 

Quality Family Time

Our lives are so busy nowadays that finding the time to spend some time together as a family can be difficult. However, owning your own holiday home means that you can pick your kids up from school on a Friday and head straight off to spend the weekend relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.

 

Reduction in Travel Time

When you go abroad, you can often spend up to 12 hours actually getting there, including getting to the airport, waiting to board the plane, and actually flying. Owning your own home at a holiday park in North Wales means that you do away with all this, as your holiday home is usually situated no more than a few hours’ drive away from where you live.

 

If you have been thinking about owning your own holiday home at Plassey, then why not talk to our friendly team. We are available to answer any questions you have so just call us on 01978 780 277 or send us an email to enquiries@plassey.com

Local Attraction Guide: Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

If our years of providing caravan holidays in North Wales have taught us anything, it is that we are situated within one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. We work hard to ensure that the facilities that we offer visitors on site are second to none, but we are also incredibly lucky to be based in an area that has such fantastic local attractions as well. In this article, the first of many exploring the local area, we will take a look at one of the most popular attractions near us – the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a true monument to the Industrial Revolution, with 18 stone towers standing at 127 feet above the River Dee, and an iron trough running 1,007 feet along. Built in 1875 as a solution to linking the River Mersey and the River Dee the name ‘Pontcysyllte Aqueduct’ translates as “the bridge that connects the river”.

In 2009, the Aqueduct and the accompanying canal were awarded World Heritage Status in 2009, due to it being a “highly monumental civil engineering structure” and bearing witness to the production capacities of the British ironmaking industries.  It is amazing to think that this Aqueduct has actually been in continuous use for 200 years! For the first 130 it was used to transport coal, iron, limestone, slate and general goods and for the past 70 years, it has been used to convey drinking water and also pleasure boats!

The Aqueduct is only a 15-minute drive from Plassey, and it is a really popular destination for many of our visitors – not just for the beautiful scenery.  You can explore it under your own steam, or you can pay to go on one of the many boat rides that stem from here.  For example, there is one company that offers a two-hour trip on a centrally heated and fully weatherproof motor boat which takes you along a five-mile stretch of the canal, including passing over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Some companies also offer Horse Drawn boat trips during the warmer months which not only take in the Horseshoe Falls at the head of the canal but also the recently refurbished Chain Bridge at Berwyn.

Another way you can explore the canal is by canoe! Recent funding has allowed for two new canoe slipways to be constructed near Horseshoe Falls at the top end of the canal. These now provide an easy way for canoeists to enter and exit the Llangollen Canal and also links to the more challenging and faster flowing River Dee. With 11 miles of canal to explore, including the Aqueduct and also two tunnels, this is a great day out for the more active amongst our visitors! The Canal & River Trust has even produced a leaflet including a map and tips on canoeing safely in the area.

As you can see there are lots of reasons to visit the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Llangollen Canal, so next time you are staying at Plassey why not head over there?
