cb8d804d-09e1-48e4-9231-7c68fdaa3f45

The annual National Tourism Awards for Wales has named The Plassey Holiday Park near Wrexham as its best holiday, touring and camping park 2013.

The campsite was one of 20 winners announced last night by Radio 1 and TV presenter Aled Haydn Jones. Prizes were given across a range of categories including the best events, cafes, pubs, restaurants, accommodation, and tourism experiences.

The Plassey Holiday Park houses a thriving craft and retail centre, with about 25 businesses including boutiques, caravan and camping accessories, hand-made crafts, a hair and beauty studio, bridal and event specialists, a traditional blacksmith and equestrian suppliers, and a computer shop.

The former stable block is home to a coffee shop and licensed restaurant, and the site is also home to the independent Plassey Brewery. Among the other attractions on the campsite, a member of the exclusive Premier Parks group, are an indoor swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course.
