Our holiday led to us buying a home here. Stayed at Pritchard Lodge. 
Had nice weather, great chalet, great site. We bought our own while we were here. It is that good!

Our Paradise.
We bought a caravan with a plan of a couple of years, 20+ we are still here! As we drive into the park all stresses of life lift and we are in a tranquil paradise. We could not imagine life without our holiday home and all our wonderful memories with family and friends. All thanks to a professional friendly team who provide the warmest of welcomes and make our time spent here precious.

Sharon and Steve

Surrounded by dark starry skies and tranquil natural beauty. With perfectly maintained individual plots and a friendly team. Madryn Castle really is our happy place.

Sara and Pete

Our holiday home at Madryn Castle is our ‘perfect escape’, as soon as we arrive, we know we will relax and unwind in the peaceful, beautiful surroundings. We enjoy exploring the local area and have easy access to beaches and amenities to either side of the Peninsula. Our plot is unique, developed individually and private. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional. We just love being here making happy memories with family and friends, some of whom have also bought on the holiday park following their stay with us!
