Family holidays Wales, UK

Happy children make for happy family holidays. We know all the parental tricks, too, about what children like. Other kids to play with.  Short travel times. Playgrounds. Anything involving animals. Wi-fi (crucial for teenagers). A decent Plan B, in case it rains. Ice-cream. Wetsuits. And we know that it’s often the simplest things that make children happy. Give them a beautiful beach and a sunny day, and they’ll remember it forever. We’ve focused on each of our 14 holiday areas, to give just a flavour of the great things for families to enjoy.
