Wales is a beautiful country with majestic landscapes embraced by glorious beaches along the coast and nestled snugly around the towering Snowdonia; the highest mountain in Wales. With a culture as rich and diverse as the stunning scenery, a trip to Wales can be an exhilarating experience for the whole family and what better way to see Wales than in the comfort of a caravan?
A caravan holiday means that you can stay in a number of locations or one place and then drive home at the end of the holiday. Providing you have caravan insurance in place before departing, all you need to do is select a destination and take to the road.
As the perfect place to take a caravan with so many sights to see and places to explore, deciding where to begin your journey round Wales can be difficult. To help, here are a few caravan locations which showcase everything great about Wales:
1. Snowdonia Park Campsite, Caernarfon
Perfectly situated just 4 miles from the foot of the mighty Snowdonia with a range of great facilities and a local micro brewery and real ale pub that offers delicious home cooked food, this is one place you will want to come back to again and again. With the beach a mere 5 miles away and activities such as golf, walking, fishing and horse riding to name but a few, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
While staying in the caravan park there are many modern amenities so this caravan holiday will be the ultimate in scenery and comfort. No visit to Snowdonia would be complete without a trip on the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which travels all the way to the top of Snowdonia for breathtaking views.
2. Tyddyn Llwyn Campsite, Porthmadog
The best thing about staying in this area is that there are lots of activities as well as some beautiful scenery to view whatever the weather. A family run park, the surrounding countryside is a haven for wildlife and sits at the foot of another stunning mountain – Moel-y-Gest.
With the town of Porthmadog within walking distance and the Black Rock Sands beach a short drive away, there is plenty of scope for water sports and other activities too. For sci-fi fans, Portmeirion is also a short drive away and is where the cult show The Prisoner was filmed alongside other popular shows including Doctor Who. With pretty coloured buildings and an eclectic mix of features such as woodlands and castles, it’s easy to see why.
3. Lleithyr Farm Holiday Park, Whitesands Bay, Pembrokeshire
Again, this caravan site offers a fantastic array of activities for all ages and the chance to see some astonishing sights. Set on the Pembrokeshire coast, this campsite has clean, modern facilities with access to the golden beaches and an animal farm walk which plays home to short-legged cows, pygmy goats and Kune Kune pigs.
For those who want a great climbing experience, Carn Llidi is a short distance away and is a challenging hike. The site is also just a few miles away from the beautiful Cathedral city of St. David’s.
