PEOPLE's curiosity has been piqued by the arrival of a new sign at the entrance of a now closed farm park tourist attraction.

Llandudno's Bodafon Farm Park opened to visitors for a final time on Sunday, September 24 2023 after two decades. On its Facebook page, hours now state 'permanently closed.'

The site reiterated their closure on social media in November by posting on their Facebook page: "Bodafon may be closed but if you liked our woodfired pizzas, real fires and rustic chilled out atmosphere you will love the Penrhyn Arms in Penrhynside." Former Bodafon Farm Park owner Mark Roberts also runs the Penrhyn Arms.

However, beady-eyed residents in recent days have noticed a large wooden sign that has gone up by the entrance to the closed park that states: 'Bodafon Farm Park - temporarily closed', which suggests the site may re-open in the near future.

Many people were concerned houses would be built on the site; Anwyl Homes are building homes on the fields off Nant-y-Gamar Road as part of their development Parc Bodafon. The development, once completed, will feature 49 homes across four-acres.

Before leaving the site, Mark told the Pioneer that he hoped Bodafon Farm Park could remain as "some sort of family oriented business." 

He said: "I don’t know if it will, but I think there is a good chance as it does lend itself for doing that.


"People are probably worrying a bit much, especially those that think when I go the bulldozers are going to move in.

"That is not the case."

Mark left the farm because the lease with property management company Mostyn Estates had come to an end. Mark had also decided to semi-retire.

Bodafon Farm Park, Bar and Restaurant had been running since 1999 on Bodafon Fields in Llandudno.

Mark said prior to the closure: "I opened it in 1999 [the farm park] and I went there in 1990.

“I will miss the farming aspect. I did really enjoy that. I will be 65 by the time I leave and it doesn’t get any easier. I’m looking forward to doing something a bit different and having a bit more time off possibly.”

Mostyn Estates has been approached for comment.
