Combines all the benefits of a luxurious campsite, with the retail delights of a craft and retail centre. This houses over 20 different trades, ranging from blacksmiths to goldsmiths, hair salons to ice cream makers. All housed in sympathetically converted Edwardian farm buildings. First-rate facilities include hardstandings (plus super pitches), excellent toilet and shower blocks, as well as indoor badminton courts and lots of shops. Naturally, there's a good restaurant on site. It's also handy for visits to Chester, the North Wales coast, Llangollen and the mountains of mid-Wales. ...

A blacksmith hammers and sparks away in the shadow of a tiny real ale brewery. An artist is mixing dough from which she creates animal-caricature ornaments with gleaming, laughing eyes that say ‘buy me, I’m cute’. Across a courtyard and up an iron staircase, the precision craft of clock making is going on.

This incredible mix of talent and tradition and business is going on at – you’ve guessed it – a touring caravan park. The Plassey, a few miles from Wrexham, just inside the Welsh border, is no ordinary caravan park, though. It’s home to 20 small retail and craft businesses, all hidden in a warren of little units in a former farm building complex. A stay at The Plassey is a weekend in itself; you don’t need to leave the park to enjoy a couple of days here. Other on-site attractions include a nine-hole golf course, an outdoor plant sales area, home-made ice cream, plus a visitor centre detailing Chester’s attractions and history.

There's even a hair salon on site, housed in a converted granary - think ahead (if you pardon the pun) if you fancy leaving The Plassey with a new look as you need to book in advance. And after you've been restyled, why not visit the beauty salon for extra pampering? Then go to the jewellery workshop and be tempted to complete your new look with a stylish and unique piece. That’s after you’ve bought clothes here... and don’t forget the speciality chocolates to take home… There’s even a photographer – well, your new look might be worth recording - but we suspect this photographic studio draws most of its business from a lot further afield than the caravan park.

Walk around this pretty estate, watch the ducks waddle right up to your caravan – and then just drink in the view. Add to that the restaurant and coffee-and-eats establishment housed amid the old farm buildings and you have the Saturday of your weekend taken care of. And Sunday? Well why not sample the delights of Chester. The North Wales coast. Llangollen. The mountains of mid-Wales. Even the sailing and walking attractions of the Bala Lake area. They’re all within easy reach. Otherwise, a game of badminton might appeal – on the park’s covered courts.

As we towed out of The Plassey on the evening of the last day of our all-too-brief stay, caravanners and motorhomers were setting out their chairs and tables and wine glasses as barbecues sizzled, sending mouth-watering smoke signals vertically in the still early-evening air, exemplifying the tranquillity that is The Plassey. The excellent facilities on this site include a small food shop, a launderette with ironing boards, and a log-cabin-style heated shower buildings where the emphasis is on quality and ultra-cleanliness.
