PLAS UCHAF CARAVAN AND CAMPING PARK
NORTH WALES
Benllech Bay, Anglesey LL74 8NU
01407 763012
plasuchaf.co.uk

Other facilities include an indoor dishwashing area, a book swap, waste facilities, glass recycling, a reception, and children's play areas. The only thing that's a bit odd is that the washroom lights are on automatic timers, so they go off at about 8am. This means, if you want a shower in the cubicle that's not next to the window, it's a bit gloomy. The same happens in the toilet cubicles, but you can mostly see well enough! The site is very well looked after, and dogs are welcome.
