Trench Farm in Penley, Wrexham, offers superb campsite accommodation in a beautiful location. Situated in 150 acres of farm and woodland, we are perfect for wildlife lovers.
We are perfect for fishing and we have been open for over 30 years and have built a reputation by providing excellent quality fishing. There are 3 main pools and a nature reserve. There are pitches for touring caravans and camping and we offer full facilities. We have 5 hard standing pitches and 15 grass pitches plus many tent pitches as well.
Fishing for two people is also included in our nightly pitch fees.
Wildlife on the farm is abundant due to the way we have farmed over the past years by leaving our hedge rows to grow wherever possible and not being too clinical, this has created an ideal habitat for many species of bird, insects, butterflies etc therefore do not be surprised when walking by the fishing pools you see a bright flash of blue/green as a Kingfisher darts by. Barn, Tawny & Little owls are often heard at night, if you are lucky you may even see a Barn Owl fluttering over the paddock searching for prey in the early evening. Other animals on the farm include Badgers, Foxes, Hares, Water voles & many more.
Spring 2015 saw the completion of our 50 acre solar farm, those interested in renewable energy are welcome to walk around the site (by the way this also makes a great dog walk ) and will also further add to the abundant wildlife we already have the privilege of enjoying , as the land will now lie undisturbed!
We are situated just 3 miles from the town of Ellesmere also known as shropshires lake district due to its many meres . There are some lovely scenic walks around Colemere and along the Shropshire union canal. Wrexham is just 20 minutes away by car offering excellent shopping facilities. If you love to fish or maybe just prefer to chill out we believe we have the perfect base from which to explore this lovely countryside and its surrounding areas.
