Why Wales Makes an Ideal Caravan Holiday Destination

There are hundreds of sights around the world that you will undoubtedly want to see, and with ever-expanding bucket lists and the accessibility of global travel, it's easier than ever before. However, in amongst all the exotic destinations, it's worth remembering that you don't have to go far to discover new places, stunning scenery and fantastic attractions. For something different a little closer to home, you could look at caravan holidays in Wales for your break this year.

You could visit North or West Wales to explore on your own or with the whole family. In a caravan, there will be more than enough room for you all, but if you're not sure what do on your holiday, we've put together a handy guide to help.

Holidaying in North Wales

Caravan holidays in North Wales can be great fun - there's plenty to do for everyone, whether you are travelling alone or with the family. You can even find activities to do with your pets! The area is also rich in history and culture and is home to the town with the longest place name in the UK - ‘Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch'.

There are plenty of great holiday caravan parks that will suit everyone's needs, but whilst you're visiting, here are a few things you can do in the area.

Families - If you're holidaying with the whole family, you don't want to be stuck inside. Why not take a trip and visit the Welsh Mountain Zoo, located near the town of Colwyn Bay? Going to the zoo is something that is suitable for the entire family and will undoubtedly leave you all with many great memories. 

If the weather is being kind to you, another exciting option is to head off on a Seacoast Safari and catch a glimpse of the local nature. Of course, if the weather isn't great, you could always spend some quality family time relaxing together at the caravan park.

With Pets - For those who have pets it can be difficult to find the right place to go away, but there is more than enough to do with your pet in North Wales. Of course, you will need to find a pet-friendly caravan park, but once you arrive you can set off exploring. You might want to take a long stroll along the coast path or around any of the other beautiful country paths the region has to offer.

However, if you're looking to do something extra special, why not take your dog for a beer at the Bryntirion Inn? Located in Llandderfel, it's one of many places in Wales that will give you a great meal but this place will also allow your dog to try the food and beer too! There's definitely no reason to leave your pet at home on this trip.

Couples - If you and your partner are looking for a great holiday then North Wales will be right up your street. There are various restaurants and plenty of activities to do. If you both enjoy an active lifestyle you might want to tackle the challenge of climbing Mount Snowdon or take a long romantic walk along one of the various beaches in North Wales.

Alternatively, you could decide to stay home at the caravan site and spend a few relaxing days together while taking advantage of the various facilities that the park has to offer. You don't need to go off exploring - staying in can be just as fun and romantic.

Solo Travelling - You don't have to go on a trip with anyone else - if you want to go alone then do it. There is still plenty to do and the fun won't be dampened by travelling solo. If you love getting out and learning, you could visit Caernarfon Castle. This medieval castle is a great tourist attraction and will keep you busy all day.

However, if you'd rather, this is also the perfect opportunity to stay at the holiday park and relax. This might be the first time in a long time that you've been able to think just about yourself, so why not pick up a book, grab a cup of tea or coffee and simply relax. 

Holidaying in West Wales

Caravan holidays in West Wales can be just as fun, if not more so, and there is certainly a lot that you can do whilst there. West Wales is a highly popular holiday destination for all, with various places to visit that are suitable for everyone. 

Families - If you are travelling with the family then you may be wondering what you can do that will keep the whole family busy. Take your pick! You could visit the Manor House Wildlife Park and take a look at the giant rabbits or you may want to visit Llangrannog Beach and build some sandcastles.

Again, if the weather isn't the best, it might be wise to stay close to home and relax in the caravan park. If you pick the right caravan park, you will find that there is plenty to do to keep everyone happy. Don't forget to pack books, colouring pens and board games - all the tools you need to spend some quality family time together in the caravan.

With Pets - There's no need to worry as your pet too can come along to West Wales too, and there's a ton of fun activities that you can do together. Firstly, there are a lot of places where you can go walking. In fact, you could spend your entire holiday walking and you still wouldn't get to see everything!

You could also visit Barafundle Bay and let your dog take a paddle in the sea. Why leave your pet at home when you could bring them on holiday with you?

Couples - If you've come away to spend some quality time together then you really couldn't have picked a better place. You could pay a visit to Cwm Deri Vinyard and taste some fine wines or if you'd like to get out and see more of the area, take a ride on the Teifi Valley Railway.

Solo Traveling - If you're travelling alone, there's still plenty that you can do. You might want to consider learning about the local history by visiting picturesque St David's Cathedral or finding out about wildlife and nature by visiting the Coed Rheidol Nature Reserve.

You may also want to visit some of the local beaches. Sea air is incredibly refreshing and if you've come to West Wales to escape the hustle and bustle of city living, a day at the beach is the perfect solution. 

So, now you know what you can do on a static caravan holiday in Wales. After reading this, you may feel slightly surprised to learn just how much there is to do in the area. Hopefully, we've also managed to convince you that a cheap caravan holiday in Wales is far better than spending more money to go abroad when there are plenty of awe-inspiring sights right here in the UK. All that's left to do now is to book your break!
