Cliffs & cottages

Caravan travel is quite satisfying. It provides a more enjoyable way to explore your destination, not to mention the opportunity to create lasting memories on your way there and back. However, the experience is only as good as the destination you choose. If you are looking to explore Wales or its environs in 2021, this article is for you. Here are a few top caravan holidays ideas to consider this 2021.

1. Hafan y Môr Holiday Park, Pwllheli

If you came before the pandemic, this location might not have been intriguing. Following a refurbishment in 2019, the location added a lot of interesting things to engage in for enjoyment, transforming it into what it is now. Currently, it is a top attraction for many people taking caravan holidays in Wales and expecting a memorable experience. Being among the largest caravan parks in the UK, Haven Hafan Y has garnered a lot of praise for its great amenities and customer happiness. If you have children, they will want to return here after your initial visit. This is due to the numerous activities they can participate in. Indoor swimming pools, a four-lane waterslide, boat rentals, high ropes courses, and miniature off-road vehicles are just a few of the attractions.wales ruin

2. Haven Lydstep Beach Holiday Park

This Park may not be the largest in the UK, but it is certainly worth a visit, especially if you are a camper. It attracts a lot of attention from visitors because it contains literally everything a family may want to have a good time and make memories while out there. To begin with, there is an indoor pool, a climbing wall, and target shooting. Also, you will go home knowing how to kayak, in case you do not. The Park is a little pricier than most other parks of its kind, but once you have visited it, you will agree that it is well worth the price tag. The majority of the activities you can participate in are either free of charge or quite affordable. It’s just a fun place to go.

3. Kiln Park Holiday Centre

If you enjoy caravanning but do not yet own one, you should visit Kiln Park Holiday Centre. The location for one offers caravans to those who are yet to own their own and lots of space for those towing their own to the place. The Park is only a short walk from Tenby’s gorgeous Blue Flag South Beach, allowing you to experience all the beach has to offer with your family.

Kiln Park also provides you with the option of swimming in indoor pools or in open-air pools. As if that weren’t enough, you can add to the excitement by participating in mini-golf and a variety of other activities that will keep your kids active and happy throughout your visit. Make a reservation for your family as soon as possible this summer so you and your family don’t miss out on all the fun.Wales beach

A country of contrasts: the spectacular shores and urban chic of Wales

As we zigged and zagged fifteen minutes through the countryside past nothing but rolling green fields and herds of lazy sheep (there are over 11 million in tiny Wales), it was hard to believe a beach could be at the end of this ride out from Swansea. Sure enough, however, the bus through the Gower Peninsula hit the Wales coastline at Rhossili Bay and we were absolutely awestruck at its natural beauty. Green hills unfold down to the sea to the southeast, while their sheer cliffs jut down to wide, sandy beaches below.

There was a quick stop in Port Eynon Bay, one of the Gower’s most popular beaches, before moving on to the long Oxwich Bay and finally Three Cliffs Bay, its namesake obvious even from far in the distance.

Jess in WalesDespite its 7,800 miles of coast line (750 of which are in Wales), Britain is not considered a beach destination in the traditional sense even though you are never further than two hours from a beach anywhere in Britain. The most popular beach destinations in Britain tend to be Brighton or Cornwall but the Gower Peninsula in Southern Wales is the first of Britain’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and Rhossili Bay was voted Best Beach in Britain in 2010.

Wales Rhossili BayDuring the summer months brave visitors can go for a swim, but the chilly Atlantic never warms up as much as the Mediterranean and we only dipped a toe in the water here. However, for surfers, especially windsurfers, the waves are just right, and for those who are not into water sports, there are endless walking and cycling paths along the coast line which can be enjoyed at any time of the year. One day we’d like to do the whole of the Cambrian Way, 275 miles of coastal pathway from Cardiff to the north of Wales.

Cosmopolitan Cardiff prides itself on its mix of modern and historic cultural attractions like the world-class Millennium Centre – home of the Welsh National Opera, the New Theatre – the city’s oldest, built in 1906, and the truly breathtaking Cardiff Castle – one of Britain’s most significant historic structures.

The city’s luxurious spa hotels such as the grand St Davids Hotel Cardiff offer guests a weekend of relaxation and pampering. We have found, however, there are plenty of hotels in Cardiff for mid-range to budget travelers as well, and plenty of affordable attractions and things to do in the city.
