Commonwood Leisure in Holt win Best Holiday Park Title!

A family-run holiday park in Wrexham has beat off stiff competition to win a top region al award.

The Commonwood Caravan and Glamping site, in Holt, near Wrexham, was crowned North Wales’s Best Holiday Park at the prestigious Go North Wales Tourism Awards.

The headline sponsor for the glittering event at Venue Cymru in Llandudno was the leading food distribution company Harlech Foodservice, that’s celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and it was hosted by acclaimed journalist Sian Lloyd who hails from Wrexham.

After starting out as a fishery, Commonwood Leisure has been transformed by brothers Tom and Josh Dunn.

The dynamic duo developed the site into a holiday destination with luxury tented accommodation and caravan pitches complemented by a café/restaurant.

Their mother, Julie, said: “We’re thrilled to have won and it’s a well-deserved reward for Tom who, along with Josh, has really transformed the site and the offer with cabins and tents and even a festival in the summer.

“We attract people from across the UK and Ireland and families like to use us as somewhere they can all get together in lovely surroundings.

“We have been very, very busy this year and we’re reaping the rewards of all the hard work that has been done.

“In the summer we were regularly attracting 300 people on a Friday night and at the festival in June we had 750 here.

“We have a range of Bell Tents for families and couples and fishing the pleasure lakes is included in the cost of the Bell Tent.

“The Arcadia Safari tent in its own five-acre field, comes with its own private lake to fish, swim, canoe. Also included is a small natural lounge pool, pizza oven, BBQ, fire pit, extra-large table, seating areas, hammock.”

They also have a range of lakes that are suitable for all types of anglers.

Jim Jones, the chief executive of North Wales Tourism who headed the judging panel, said: “Commonwood is a stand-out facility which has been a real family business and which has developed in recent times into a very popular attraction.

“It stands in a lovely and historic area of North East Wales, surrounded by attractive towns and villages, and is within a couple of hours drive of a huge area of the North of England and the Midlands.”

Adding to this, tourism manager at Wrexham Council, Joe Bickerton said; "The hard work of the Dunn family in establishing this park over the last decade is now not only attracting guests into Wrexham, but also being recognised by industry peers across the region with an award like this. There have been challenges along the way, but the team at Commonwood must be applauded for their vision, commitment and the way that they rode out the pandemic to emerge stronger on the other side!"
