Plas Uchaf Touring & Camping park on Anglesey

Anglesey (Welsh: Ynys Môn) is an island and a county off the north west coast of Wales. Two bridges connect it to the mainland: the original Menai Suspension bridge designed by Thomas Telford in 1826 and the more recently rebuilt Britannia Bridge which also carries the North Wales Coast Railway Line. The name *Anglesey* was later used in the English language as a country name which included Holy Island and other nearby small islands. About half the people who live on Anglesey can speak, read and write Welsh as well as English, and 70% have a knowledge of Welsh.With an area of 714 square kilometres (276 sq mi), Anglesey is the largest  Welsh island, the 6th largest surrounding the island of Great Britain, and the largest island in the Irish Sea ahead of the Isle of Man.

We stayed not far from Benllech as we had arranged to meet up with a work colleague on the Sunday morning.

The Plas Uchaf Touring & Camping park is level & well sheltered. It’s spread across 20 acres and has Tarmacadam roads & street lights. Pitches for vans are hardstanding [good in winter, boring in summer] and the park is near a beach but as it’s a busy family oriented site dogs have to be kept on a lead. The 3 heated WC blocks feature hot showers, pot and pan rooms, family rooms, ample sinks and are well maintained and very clean. It’s a nice site but has not got that *wow* factor and is probably best suited for families and older couples.

I think we paid £15 and can’t remember if dogs & the hook-up were free or if we had to pay extra but it’s definitely a pleasant enough site and well worth the money. Would we come here again? Probably not.
