The site for the Ynysymaengwyn Caravan Park was once a country house built around 1758 and the house’s ruins still remain. The house was bequeathed to the town council in 1948, following it’s use by the army at the end of WWII, as the current owners were unable maintain it’s upkeep. Unfortunately, neither was the council. The house quickly fell into disrepair and ended it’s days as a practice site for the fire brigade.
If you are visiting Tywyn between mid-September and the end of October, why not spend a couple of hours chestnut picking? The nearest spot to your holiday accommodation for a spot of foraging is Ynysmaengwyn Park which is a beautiful woodland park open daily throughout the year.
