The 15-acre Min-y-Don Holiday Home and Touring Park, which has 112 caravan holiday homes and 100 touring caravan and motorhome pitches, nestles below Harlech Castle, alongside the famous Royal St David’s Golf Club and just a short walk from one of the best beaches in Wales. Most of the pitches have views of either the castle or Mount Snowdon.

The touring pitches have recently been extended and they now all have hard standing to help caravanners and motorhome owners in wet weather.

A £2 million redevelopment of the park in 2008 included a superb toilet block, which has five star toilets, wash hand basins, showers, full disabled facilities, laundry and dishwashing room, together with private bathrooms. Min-y-Don is an affiliated site of The Caravan Club, the largest touring organisation of its kind in Europe.

Sue Hodgson said the awards were a tribute to the hard work of all the park staff and a fitting end to a busy and successful year.

‘We are overwhelmed to win the national category and market sector awards for holiday parks in the UK,’ she added.  ‘The awards are fantastic for the park and recognition of the hard work that goes in to the toilet block to keep it at platinum grade standard.

‘We are blessed with a stunning location, which encourages many touring caravanners and motorhome owners to buy a luxury holiday home at Min-y-Don because they love the area so much.’

Local Assembly Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd, Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas, congratulated the park. ‘I am delighted that Min-y-Don Holiday Home and Touring Park is being recognised once again for its high standard of service,’  he said.
