The history of Maes-y-Bryn Campsite...

I'm Beryl and I am the key holder of Maes-y-Bryn Campsite. If you are looking for a Campsite with a personal touch in a tranquil location then Maes-y-Bryn is the place for you. I extend a warm welcome to all guests and most visitors tend to return year after year.

Part of the attraction is the rural setting of the site in an area outstanding beauty but close enough to the major attractions of North Wales. The second thing people enjoy is the animals on the farm which are practically pets. I welcome help from children and guests to feed, collect eggs, turn out and put away the animals in the evenings to bed.

All the animals love the attention showered on them, in particular Esme the sheep who is a firm favourite with visitors. She visits the camp gate each morning for food and will eat out of your hand. The other campsite stars are Ela and Nel, the farm dogs and Mia the cat.

The third thing which visitors enjoy is the facilities which I have worked to establish for guests including a toilet block, dish washing area, laundry and small camp shop. All this mixed together seems to create a happy atmosphere great for guests, so much so that the site was voted one of the top then campsites in North Wales. I hope that you choose to come and stay with us and enjoy what we have to offer.

There is a lot of history to 'Maes-y-Bryn' Campsite which actually translates in English to 'Field on a Hill'. The location has had many name changes over the years and dates back to the fifteenth century. In some recent renovation work we uncovered the original stone mantel which dated back to that early period.

The location of the site is on the 'Old Highway' and Maes-y-Bryn used to be the site of a pub. It was called Syr Watcyns Arms, Wynnstay Arms and Dafarn Drap (The Cart Pub). In 1904 the pub virtually closed overnight during the Christian Revolution and legend had it that the cellar was sealed with many drinks left inside. Many people have searched for the cellar since but to not avail.

In the 1940's the name was changed to the last time to Maes-y-Bryn which the site retains today.
