About Acorn Leisure and our Acorn Leisure Holiday Parks in North Wales

“As a husband and wife company, we treasure a relaxed, but professional way of doing business. We take our inspiration from rural retreats, great countryside locations and the rustic, woodland settings around us. We, along with our small dedicated team, aspire to help holiday homeowners enjoy their lifestyle choices, be it for enjoyment, dreams, relaxation, creating happy memories, or adventure.” Louise Barlow – Director

Acorn Leisure Holiday Parks are located in beautiful North Wales countryside and as a family-run leisure company, we strive to create relaxing and inspiring holiday parks for holiday homeowners to enjoy.

We believe in providing spectacular locations for holiday homeowners, who wish to escape to the country, to enjoy space, the natural beauty of nature, peace, tranquillity and panoramic views that only special rustic destinations offer. There are no holiday home rentals, nor subletting, which offers exclusivity and an additional layer of security to promote a quiet holiday lifestyle – an Acorn Leisure Lifestyle!

As custodians of the land on which Acorn Leisure Holiday Parks are located, it is our dream to preserve, develop, improve and share the space with our holiday homeowners.

We believe in promoting local businesses.

Here we highlight a few that can be found ‘on the doorstep’ of Acorn Leisure Holiday Parks and further afield.

We have included businesses that offer delivery and takeaway services, making it easy to find the essentials for a happy holiday lifestyle without searching too far.

Not only that, we have included a few helpful services, as well as a few places to eat, drink and shop.

Hope you find it useful, but there are plenty more for you to explore and share with us too.

Testimonials from our Acorn Leisure Holiday Homeowners 

We are coming to the end of our first summer as lodge owners at Maes Mynan Park. There is nothing that we can fault about the Park and surroundings.

If you enjoy wildlife, peace and tranquillity, this could suit you, however if you want night-life perhaps not!

Peter, Louise and a small team of dedicated people have turned a dream of making an old gravel quarry, and piece of land, into a lodge park, concentrating on the wonderful view over a lake, which is abundant with wildlife, and that view changes every day. They have achieved something really special and we cannot say thank you enough to them for allowing us to be able to appreciate it with them.

High standards are a priority; the park is maintained well at all times, everyone is friendly and helpful, so very hard to beat.

SL – Maes Mynan Lodge Park


Here at Maes Mynan Park ‘what you see is what you get’.

Nearly 2 years on and what we love are; the long sunny days ending in fabulous sunsets; dramatic rainy misty mountains; and even the 4 inches of snow we had in January 2021 (must remember the sledge!).

A true collage of nature at its best.

A fantastic community of people, who enjoy the leisurely walks and impromptu stops for tea and cake with each other, and of course evenings inside, or on the deck with a Gin & Tonic, prosecco, or a beer, or maybe all 3!!

What’s not to like … you can’t change the past, but you can change the future.

PH – Maes Mynan Lodge Park


I love having a seasonal touring pitch on The Oaks Touring Park because it suits my holiday lifestyle. I can get away anytime in between my shifts and as it is located in the open countryside, this is my peace of heaven in an otherwise very busy life with full on grandchildren and job.

JJ – The Oaks Touring Caravan Park


We were looking for a Holiday Park with an emphasis on nature and came across Maes Mynan, visited that weekend, and we were hooked! Louise was really helpful when choosing our caravan lodge and sorting things when it arrived.

The site is very peaceful and there are many walks available on the site as well as into Caerwys.

The sense of community is building amongst us all as holiday homeowners, with a recent Music night helping to cement our Holiday Lifestyle here – but it’s also easy to go for total peace and quiet too.

We always say we are on Lodge time when we stay, the weekend feeling like a week. We love it!

JH – Maes Mynan Park


In 2020, we purchased our first Lodge at Maes Mynan Holiday Park.  We had no previous knowledge in making such a purchase, but Louise and Peter made the whole experience seamless.

Peters’ knowledge of the various types of lodges and caravans available was second to none. And Louise’s experience in internal layout and design gave us the perfect lodge to suit our requirements.

As for the park itself, well they say seeing is believing, and having visited many other parks before our purchase, Maes Mynan Park quite simply stood out above the rest. Offering stunning views, country walks and open spaces. This dog friendly park is also the perfect place to relax and unwind in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We have never looked back!
