Maes Mynan Park Welcomes You
Hello and Welcome to Maes Mynan Park – a holiday park for holiday home owners of luxury lodges and static caravans. We are delighted to share this hidden gem with you.
Maes Mynan Park is an owner only holiday park located in the far corner of Flintshire North Wales. It is a tranquil countryside location for those seeking the peace and quiet of their very own luxury holiday home in the country.
Maes Mynan over the years has been in the hands of royalty. As a location it has been known as ‘the Arcadia of Wales, if not of England’ (Flintshire Observer, 6 June 1873), ‘Little Switzerland’ and a sand and gravel quarry!
Today you will find a peaceful haven and a hidden gem that boasts incredible scenery and views overlooking the smooth summit of Moel Y Parc, part of the Clwydian Range and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). With a mosaic of habitat which includes lakes, grassland, wild areas and adjacent woodlands, Maes Mynan Holiday Park offers open ground nestled alongside natural vegetation, trees, shrubs, wild flowers and wildlife. The patterns of the landscape change with the seasons, but as we have a 12 month holiday season, there is no chance of missing the delights of this special place.
Inspired by the natural landscape
Today, Maes Mynan Park is a beautifully located new holiday park development set in 100 acres of rustic Welsh countryside and it’s 1873 accolade ‘Arcadia of Wales’ still holds true today.
Surrounded by woodlands and majestic panoramic views of lakes, the Clwydian Range, Chwiler Valley and the Denbigh Moors, Maes Mynan Holiday Park offers the perfect escape to the country for those seeking a tranquil, nature inspired holiday home location in a designated Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Located in Afonwen Caerwys and only 4 miles from junction 31 of the A55 North Wales Expressway, Maes Mynan Park really does hold its own unique charm.
An old quarry evolving into Parkland and an exclusive holiday park.
Once an old sand and gravel quarry in the 20th century, the site is now evolving into a beautiful mixed leisure holiday park.
With design and nature in perfect balance, phase two of the development is underway and our first bespoke luxury holiday lodges are available to view. Our first show home (now sold) was called The Llewellyn Lodge by Prestige Homeseeker, so named after the last medieval Princes of Wales, who once owned the land. We are working on a new bespoke Llewelyn Lodge now and we have two bespoke lodges arriving in June this year – our Oak Leaf Lodge by Wessex Omar and Maes Mynan Lodge by Tingdene.
Perfect holiday home location
All our lodge and static caravan plots feature panoramic countryside views. As we are a new holiday park development, our holiday home owners still have the opportunity to secure their favourite plot, before deciding upon their dream holiday lodge or caravan.
Our lodge and static caravan plots are located in separate parts of Maes Mynan Park, but they all offer something magical.
History has a part to play
Over time, we will travel back through the ages to unearth the true story of the lands at Maes Mynan, sharing with you all that we find. However for a sneak preview we offer a few snippets to whet the appetite. From a Motte, Barrow and Mynan the Giant, to Welsh Kings, Princes and Royal Deer Park, to Tudor Kings, Lords, Ladies and infighting, to farming, brick works and quarry and now holidays, parkland and leisure – we have a lot to discover!
As our research evolves we will anchor the lands heritage in all that we do at Maes Mynan Park. We have started this historic journey by naming our first holiday lodge ‘The Llewelyn Lodge’, to reflect the historical ties the land once had to the medieval Welsh Princes. We will continue to embed the history of the land in naming other areas around Maes Mynan Park and we also plan to rediscover the legend of Mynan the Giant.
The industrial heritage of Maes Mynan Park is also important to us and we have retained, where possible remnants of that history. For example, the old weighbridge is a feature to the entrance of our office, with extra pieces positioned behind our office log burner.
Large stones we discovered buried around the old weighbridge office have been included in landscaping, sitting proud to welcome visitors and we have even created a small ‘Druids’ style semi-circle with large shards of shale, a nod at the lands prehistoric past and the geological make-up of the land in the surrounding valley.
Holiday homes are a lifestyle choice
Owning a luxury lodge or static caravan holiday home in the UK is a lifestyle choice and we will be working with independent local businesses in Caerwys and Flintshire to offer a range of helpful and interesting amenities ‘On The Doorstep’ to help our customers have memorable, relaxing, enjoyable and magical holidays.
The vision for Maes Mynan Park
Maes Mynan Park has been a vision of Peter’s for over 30 years. He always saw the special beauty of this ‘Acardia of Wales’, even when it was a working quarry. Today you get lost in the wonders of nature and you can really understand why the old farmers called the place ‘Little Switzerland’.
We are very much looking forward to sharing this magical place with you. If you would like to come and see us, please call us on 07836522444 or email [email protected]
