This is our second visit to The Plassey, having now camped here firstly in a tent last year, and recently in our caravan, with our 8 year old son. The campsite is in a convenient location, situated a couple of miles outside of Wrexham, within close proximity to Wrexham and overlooking the countryside of the River Dee. The campsite grounds are immaculate, with generous, flat pitches. The first time we were on Spring Meadow with our tent. That has a mixture of grass and hard standing pitches (suits people camping together in tent and caravan). The only gripe I had with this field is the location to the facilities was a little far, but I believe a new shower/toilet block are being built on Spring Meadow, which will address that problem. On our last visit in the caravan, we chose a deluxe fully serviced pitch on Fairway View, which was fantastic and really spacious, but as it's at the top of the campsite, it was a little far for the childrens activity park. On site facilities include a craft centre/bespoke retail units, shops, tree-tops bar, restaurant, cafe, 9-hole golf course & clubhouse, fishing lake, swimming pool, games room, badminton court and an excellent Welsh-themed adventure castle playground. All facilities are fantastic and the toilets/showers are heated and immaculate (piped music to boot) :) We had great service at the Shippon restaurant, who accommodated us just as the restaurant had stopped serving (9pm). That was great service and the food was good (recommend the fish, chips & mushy peas)! In contrast, we found the service to be quite slow in the cafe; having said that, it was a busy bank holiday Monday. Nevertheless, the food was good. The tree-tops bar showed some football on the weekend and the Mac brothers & bingo was the evening entertainment. Phone coverage isn't the greatest and we found internet sketchy. My EE MiFi didn't cope well (so it rules out me actually working from the campsite, which is a pity). We paid for WiFi (£5.50 for 3 days) but found it a bit slow and only one device can be connected at a time. This isn't the cheapest campsite, but it's reflected in the 5 star amenities. The wardens are very helpful and friendly and we had a visit from John, the owner, and it was nice to meet him. We will return but will probably choose a pitch on the main field, so we're closer to the amenities for our child. We'd definitely recommend it.

As new caravan owners this was our very first touring caravan experience. We chose well. The site was beautiful, the staff very friendly and helpful. The facilities were excellent.

The weekend was fantastic. We went on the 1st - 6th April with my family. The site is really helpful because when we got to the site we had found out we had a flat tyre, the wardens gave us a helping hand to put the spare tyre on. The toilets are very clean and warm at both night and day. The site is also kept clean. There is a new play area for the children which is great as it keeps the children entertained. My daughter and her friend went swimming in the indoor pool and both said it was very warm. We especially liked the tree tops pub, the bar owners who are Lola and Dave are very welcoming The entertainment is amazing, We had the pleasure of meeting and listening to the Mac brothers who were on the voice. I loved the bingo, it was a fun and I had a relaxing night. I had an amazing time.

This is our second visit to The Plassey and it was yet again outstanding. Attention to detail for all the family was the key, wash facilities were spotless, excellent arrival staff who were most helpful, our super pitch was as described, there was plenty for our teenagers to do including badminton, table tennis and not forgetting the golf which my husband, daughter and friend all enjoyed. With a choice of 3 bars to drink and be entertained in nobody could ever say they were bored. Overall the site was clean, tidy and excellently presented, we will be back in the summer months for more enjoyment.

Reluctantly came home yesterday from a weekend at The Plassey. Took my 2 kids aged (13 and 6) and we all had a ball. Kids were out most of the time either on the fabulous park, in the games room or in the pool! So much for them to do that we (husband and I) actually relaxed. What made the most of the weekend as were able to stay later than the generous 12pm departure time free of charge on the Sunday. Most sites I have stayed in charge for this luxury but at the Plassey as long as the pitch isn't booked you are able to stay as long as you like. Understandably peak times this wouldn't be available! Site was spotless, showers well maintained and always smelt fresh the music being piped through was fab too. Highly recommended from us and we will definitely be retuning!

We have just returned home from another fantastic week at this superb 5* site, this time we wanted a chill out week to enjoy all the facilities on the site. I am not going on about the huge fully serviced patch and the immaculate shower blocks that we come to expect from the Plassey, so this trip included my golf clubs, our swimming gear, walking boots and plenty of balls for Bailey our lively CockaPoo to chase. Although the site was fairly busy it was nice and quiet and very relaxing. Whatever time of year you visit Plassey the grounds are immaculate and some of the staff were happy and busy with the routine autumn gardening maintenance and leave collection. The golf course is in first class condition and I thoroughly enjoyed several games of golf with some of their members who made me very welcome, we used the golf clubhouse a couple of nights for an evening meal which can only be described as excellent and great value for money. We also used The Plassey Restaurant one night and again James the owner made us very welcome, we just love eating there and you can take your dog in before 7pm. Yes, my wife went swimming in the heated indoor pool whilst I had another game of golf, and if you like walking, or have a dog there is plenty of walks to blow away the cobwebs and a huge dog exercise area where they can run off the lead. We used the onsite shop which again was fully stocked and offered a wide range of food and drinks together with papers etc, Ian the owner also owns the caravan accessory shop which is very useful for any bits and bobs you may need. Another thing that always impresses us is the wardens & staff are lovely, always seemed happy and smiling. Kath and I can’t recommend this site enough. Thanks everyone for making our holidays everything we expect from The Plassey, see you next March Regards Derek & Kath

Stayed at The Plassey again last weekend (21st/22nd Feb 2015), the site does not disappoint. Lovely helpful and friendly staff on arrival and although we were a little early we were able to go straight to our pitch which was spacious with everything on it. The toilet block was again spotless with lovely piping hot showers and a great radio station being played for you to sing along to if you wish while showering. Visited the Treetops Bar and the new managers are a pleasure, very friendly and outgoing people and obviously enjoying the job they are doing. Also visited the Stables coffee shop, excellent and fresh food at a good price. Managed to get out onto the nature walk which for the time of year was not to wet at all, the dog really enjoyed her long walk out. Heard the woodpecker in the woods but didn't see it, saw a couple of squirrels and a bird of prey though. All in all an excellent weekend away, we will be returning later in the year for more.

We stayed in our motorhome recently with our young Labrador. The pitch was spacious and had water, waste water and electric, (we paid a bit more for a serviced pitch.) This was the first time we had taken our dog with us, and it really is an ideal place for her. There is a large enclosed field where the dogs can run free, as well as lots of grassy areas and some great walks around the farm fields, golf course and fishing lakes. There is an amazing wood carving on the golf course which is well worth seeing. The toilet and shower blocks are modern and clean, and there is shop and some good places to eat. The old farm buildings have been converted into small retail units which include a blacksmith, camping shop etc. Right in the centre there is a new play area for children with lots of play and climbing equipment, and also a swimming pool. The restaurant and cafe serve good food or you can eat at the golf clubhouse. There is a bar upstairs with a view over the pitches and they usually have bingo etc. The site is very quiet, and the surrounding views are superb. We have stayed a few times now and would definitely recommend it.

Wonderful Plassey! We have just arrived home after another lovely weekend at this one of our favourite parks - this time we were on the Fairway View which had all the services ( Ehu / water/ grey water and TV point). The pitch was spotless and the showers and toilets were also spotless. We enjoyed a delicious meal on the Friday night followed by watching Wales (loosing) on the Saturday afternoon - the only downer on the weekend was the Wales game. It's no wonder the park has earned a premier 5 Star rating. Roll on 2016 season! :-) David Farmer

Chose this site because of location and reviews. We were not disappointed. It has to be one of the very best kept sites in the country. We chose the deluxe pitches even though we are a small camper van, because we like plenty of room. Glad we did the area was peaceful and relaxing. One of the main positives of this site were the staff. Everyone we had contact with we're helpful and happy to help. They all appeared to take great pride in the park and their work. We spent our short time there visiting attractions in the area, when really we could have easily have spent a less hectic time relaxing on the campsite. It catered for all your needs. The restaurant on site was also excellent it maybe a little more expensive than the norm but there was nothing normal about the quality. If you are in the area you won't find a better site.

This site goes from strength to strength. Have stayed many times and the improvements just keep coming. Brilliant new play area for children, improved pitches for the main field, excellent food in the Shippon restaurant and the cafe next door, interesting shops and, this year, a delightfully refurbished Treetops bar operated with great energy and friendliness by Lola & Dave. Keep up the good work!

Just visited in early October after some family commitments kept us away from the park for longer than we'd like. What a pleasant surprise to see so many changes and wonderful to see so much reinvestment in the park by it's owners. We were greeted by some friendly and welcoming wardens that ensured our check-in was swift and efficient. Normally you'd be escorted to your pitch by a warden who will help you site your outfit if you wish but as we knew the park so well, we went on our own way. There is a spectacular new (for us to see) play area for the kids that will keep them entertained for hours if not days! The standard touring pitches have all been revamped and are now level with fine gravel bases and have privacy hedges in between which is a really nice touch. The number of these touring pitches is increasing too, meaning more people get to enjoy what the park has to offer. We were staying on a deluxe pitch at the top of the park in Fairway View which is one of thirty pitches that benefit from full service hook-up including electric, water, grey waste and TV point. Each pitch has a block paved area for your outfit sitting next to a pea gravel section for your awning and a grass section along side, neatly divided by a privacy hedge. We've stayed on many parks in out time but these deluxe pitches rank as some of the best we've ever seen. The toilet block was always kept immaculately clean and we never had to queue to use any of the facilities. That said, we were visiting out of season so the park was naturally quieter. The restaurant, coffee shop and little boutique shops are great, meaning you don't have to leave site to catch up on some retail therapy or enjoy a really nice meal. At busy times and weekends, it's always going to be worth booking the restaurant to avoid disappointment. We never got a chance to use the indoor pool but have to say that it looked very inviting! If there was one disappointment it would have to be the speed of the broadband service. Over the first weekend when the site was fuller, the speed dropped to a poor 0. 1mbps but during quieter times during the week, it increased to about 0. 5mbps which is still pretty poor. This service is only really offered for people to keep in touch via email etc. And in fairness the wardens did warn us that the service might be quite slow during busy times. We use the Plassey to explore the whole of North Wales as it has so many attractions and stunning scenery you'll never run out of things to do and see. Wrexham is just a 5min drive away and has a great shopping centre and lots of pubs and restaurants. Chester is about 20min up the road from the site which is a fantastic city to visit with loads to see and do. There are so many lovely places to visit that are near to the site there's just not enough room to mention them! All in all, this is one of our favourite sites to visit and we simply can't wait to return. R Thomas
