When visiting an Allens park, many of our visitors are after activity holidays. As a result of the stunning natural scenery, Allens holiday-goers are keen to find any excuse to go out and explore. In the name of the avid walkers out there, we’ve put this handy guide together, detailing the top walking trails by our holiday parks.
Once you’ve completed your expedition, the clubhouse and bar will be waiting for you to enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple. Read on to discover the top walking trails near our parks and plan your next adventure.
If you’re an owner of holiday homes in Wales by the sea, then Constitution Hill may well be your nearest route. Beside Aber Bay sits a 1.6 km out-and-back trail, that’s generally considered a relatively easy route. On average, the trail takes 37 minutes to complete, and it’s one of the quieter routes in which you won’t encounter many other tourists.
The trail is described as a wonderful short walk up Constitution Hill, where lovely views of Aberystwyth and the coast can be experienced. Long trousers are recommended, as certain areas may be overgrown. Despite this, the majority of the route is flat, making it ideal for all ages and fitness levels. You can even replenish yourself at the café and experience the camera obscura and Cliff Railway at the top.
Our other Welsh park can be found near the Llwyngwril and Braich Ddu Circular, which is a more challenging 17.4 km loop trail. On average, it’ll take you four hours and 50 minutes to complete the route, making it a great opportunity to stop for bird-watching and fishing. As with Constitution Hill, this route isn’t overly popular with tourists, meaning you’re not too likely to encounter other people. Although you may not see other humans, you might be pleased to know that you’re more than welcome to bring your pooch along with you on this route! We recommend visiting this trail any time between April and September.
If you’re visiting our static caravan site in Northamptonshire, you might be pleased to discover that there’s an easy walking route close by. Not too far from your static caravan in Northampton, you’ll find a 7.2 km loop trail that typically takes around one hour and 38 minutes to complete. Whether you wish to hike, run, or mountain bike, this is the ideal route, and it’s not even excessively busy. Similarly, if you wish to bring your four-legged friend along, that’s allowed, too! We recommend visiting this trail any time between March and October.
Should you visit one of our static caravan parks in Worcestershire, it might excite you to learn that you’re not too far from a moderately challenging walking route. Near our holiday homes in Worcestershire, there’s an 8 km loop trail that takes around two hours and 23 minutes to complete. This is the ideal spot for running, mountain biking, and hiking alike, making it a popular spot with tourists. Not only this, but your pooch is more than welcome to join you on this route.
The loop trail starts from Evesham’s Abbey Park, and you’ll follow the river to bring you to Greenhill via the Squires and Blayneys Lane near Abbey Manor.
Conveniently next to Abbey Park, you’ll find a multi-storey car park and, when it’s not too busy, free parking may also be available along the waterside. Despite this, parking in this area will mean that you’re required to walk a little further to reach the beginning of the route.
During periods of heavy rainfall, the area is, unfortunately, prone to flooding. This may inhibit you from completing the route in its entirety, and you may have to put your explorer’s hat on to find a couple of shortcuts. With this being said, even when the rain hasn’t been particularly heavy, the area is likely to get very muddy. Therefore, we advise you to take care and ensure that you’re wearing the appropriate footwear.
Here at Allens, we have holiday parks throughout the country, and you can learn all about our locations here. Alternatively, you may wish to locate a park directly and choose the best location for your holiday home this way. As always, we look forward to welcoming you.
