Maes Mynan Park – Photographs That Tell A Tale!
Maes Mynan Holiday Park has many facets, especially as it was once a sand and gravel quarry, and before that, a working farm. The local farmers always called it ‘Little Switzerland’ because of the far-reaching views of the hills, dells and woodland outcrops.
Historically, Maes Mynan, a Flintshire Hamlet that borders the county of Denbighshire, has always been an important place. It once belonged to ‘Mynan the Giant’, the last Welsh Princes of Wales, Henry VII and Henry VIII, before landing eventually with the Mostyn Lords in the mid 17th century. You can find out more about the History of Maes Mynan here.
The Mostyn’s eventually sold the lands and old hall in 1875, as the “Arcadia of Wales, if not England”. In addition, the land where the static caravan holiday homes are located now, once belonged to Peter’s grandfather, before it passed into quarry hands.
It took over 10 years to buy the land that is now Maes Mynan Park from the previous quarry owner. Peter, since the age of 25, had a vision for the holiday park you see today. He fell in love with the kaleidoscope views all those years ago and appreciated that they would also appeal to many others, especially those who dreamt of a spectacular country retreat for their holiday home location.
