When it comes to caravan holidays, Wales is the perfect location. Despite being a small country, Wales has plenty to offer, introducing holidaymakers to beautiful, picturesque countryside. Such scenic locations leave few questions as to why so many people are eager to trade in big cities and hectic rush hour traffic for the valleys.
If you are thinking about opting for a caravan holiday in Wales this year in favour of what is probably the traditional trek abroad with the family, you may have some convincing to do. It's no secret that your tan probably isn't going to be as impressive after a week in Wales as it might in Marbella, but how much is that tan worth?
Is it really worth splashing out on expensive flights and a hotel, waiting around for hours to board the plane (which may or may not have been delayed) and doing it all over again on the way back? Instead, at either of Allens Caravans' conveniently located parks in North Wales, you can save your money for what really matters - making the most of time away with the family.
Wales is full of hidden treasures that you need to see to truly appreciate. While the beaches in Spain are undoubtedly very welcoming, we absolutely believe that the Welsh coastline is one of the finest anywhere in the world. On top of all of that, links to Welsh history and traditions remain strong, so if exploring the historical side of your destination is top of your list, then why not join us for a caravan holiday in Wales?
The Welsh coast, which overlooks the Irish Sea, is punctuated by a wealth of vibrant and welcoming towns and villages. Visitors will find they can easily lose an afternoon in Barmouth and Tywyn, while slightly further south the tiny village of Borth plays host to a welcoming beachfront and some first-class fish and chips.
Further down the coast, nestled in the centre of Cardigan Bay, is Aberystwyth. Among the largest of the towns in the area, thanks in no small part to the University and the National Library of Wales, this bustling little town is full of character and charm. From Aberystwyth, you can take an old fashioned steam train to the beautiful Devil's Bridge, home to folklore and one of the country's most impressive waterfalls. In addition, Aberystwyth Castle offers some impressive views of Trefechan and South Beach, with the mighty Constitution Hill rewarding those who reach the top with first-class views of the bay and arguably one of the best picnic spots in Wales.
Snowdon is one of the most well-known and visited mountains in the United Kingdom. Tourists travel for hours to visit Snowdonia National Park, whereas anyone fortunate enough to be staying at Allens Caravans' Sunbeach park is just a short drive away from one of the shining lights of Wales. Snowdonia National Park is also home to some awe-inspiring scenery and is a must visit for anyone who finds themselves in this stunning part of the world.
For something a little bit different, be sure to take in the Llanfair Slate Caverns. This former mine is thought to be one of the oldest in the world, with each of its caverns and tunnels possessing many historic and interesting tales.
If the thought of visiting Snowdon is something that excites you, then why not come and stay with us at Sunbeach Caravan Park? Not only will you find possibly the most conveniently located park in all of North Wales, but you will also find plenty of activities and facilities to keep you occupied just in case you don't fancy venturing far from your home away from home.
It's no secret that the weather in Wales isn't always the best, which is why the indoor complex found at Sunbeach is a firm family favourite. An indoor swimming pool (complete with dedicated swimming lanes), splash and play area for the kids, games room and café are all available - meaning there is something for the entire family to enjoy.
If you are a keen cyclist and you haven't cycled through the Welsh countryside, then you are missing out! Many of our guests joining us for caravan holidays in Wales do so with the intention of cycling on some of the most popular tracks in the world.
Tour de France and BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner Geraint Thomas spent much of his formative years cycling on the famous Welsh roads. Surrounding our Glan Y Mor caravan park are miles of unspoiled Welsh countryside just waiting to be explored on two wheels. Equally, the Welsh scenery will be just as awe-inspiring on four wheels or foot.
Open for 10-and-a-half months of the year, Glan Y Mor Leisure Park is the newest of our two caravan holiday parks in Wales. Located on the seafront at Clarach Bay, you will find facilities such as 10-pin bowling, a games room and on-site restaurants.
Surrounded by picturesque countryside, Glan Y Mor is located close to the historic Welsh town of Aberystwyth, perhaps most famous for being an ancient market town. It is also a popular holiday resort, with tourists from around the world visiting to take in the glorious Welsh sea air. Additionally, Aberystwyth has also grown in popularity as it is the setting for BBC series Hinterland (or Y Gwyll for Welsh speakers).
At Glan Y Mor, there is also a soft play area to keep active children entertained, as well as a swimming pool. It's all part of the inclusivity that we promote at all of our parks, ensuring that there is something for everyone to enjoy.
