    Beware any haven or park resorts sites, bank holidays!!!
    We were on Ty mawr at North Wales until 10pm last night until security were called about a ruckas next caravan to our pitch and when we enquired about the trouble next door said that a large brick had come through his awning from the Camping field called Henllys next door to , security turned up and said that they were going to Henllys to sort this out and that the police were called but instead of trying to sleep wondering if the next attack was going to happen to us we made a quick exit and found a quiet place that we knew of from previous years nearby.
    We knew the place might be noisy and we were prepared for that , (with our earplugs) and we were lured by the price we paid to go there but never again, we might take the offer just for the seasonal price but find a quiet CL for the first week as well, wait for the kids to go back to school until we go there.:Eeek::Eeek:

    henllys has always had a bit of a rep for noise and disruption going back years and years, could you have not been moved to the other side of the site or is that now filled with statics. There used to be 2 camping/touring fields, the one you must be on near the activity park and there was one on the other side behind the statics

    That is a bit of a generalisation, we have spent many holidays on Haven sites and never had a problem. Bank hols included. There are irriots anywhere and everywhere if you are unfortunate enough to find them. :Sad:

    Ty Mawr without doubt is the WORST site I have ever stayed on.

    One Saturday night most of the bins set on fire and a mobile home, couple of very noisy domestics, but worst of all for me was a pint glass broken in the mens showers. I have diabetic neuropathy and this could have been disastrous for me to step on.

    Even the entertainment complex was time measured by arm bands:RollEyes::Doh:

    NEVER AGAIN!!!


    I feel when theres a large amount of cheap stay statics it's nearly always a recipe for disaster

    The Ty Mawr campsite I found is Hoseasons?

    I see it is near Rhyl so the experience doesn't surprise me

    A fleeting glimpse of Rhyl, like a drive along the seafront, and it looks fine.

    But look a bit closer and you see Rhyl is not a very safe place, sadly.


    Rhyl featured in a recent TV series about Britains roughest seaside resorts.

    I think its just the area, not the company, to consider avoiding.

    I see that Ty Mawr hasn't improved since we were there some years ago. We vowed never to return and we didnt.

    oh wow Ty mawr what a site.

    Just to cheer you up. You are not the first my friend. we went there a few years back, like you, the price was keen and thought what the heck. we arrived on site to witness kids-

    playing footie with our van as the goal,
    kids peeing in the bushes with the help of there parents
    and a general oh shxt what have we done anxiety.

    We arrived at 2 pm and were on our way by 6-30 looking for a site elsewhere. A truly frightening experience even for one like me.:Sad::Rofl1:
