From restored Romany wagons to VW campers straight from the 1960s, a holiday on wheels can give you an unforgettable thrill in Wales. Get off the beaten track and stay in a completely different home.

The Cottage Co.

Heated in the winter but cool in the summer, this Monmouthshire caravan has been lovingly restored by Irish Romanies. The cabin next door provides home comforts, surrounded by a sheep farm and accompanied by a veranda where you can cook on an ancient French stove or simply watch the sunrise.

Quay West Holiday Park

Quay West Holiday Park holiday homes are perfect for kids because of their SplashZone, which includes a heated pool. Watch the fun with a drink on the terrace or have dinner above the pool, then take a walk out to the sandy beach and spot seals and dolphins in Cardigan Bay.

Dolly the Circus Waggon

Get away from it all in this Circus Waggon from the 1940s, accompanied by kitchen and shower facilities. It's set within seven acres of private land including streams, lakes and a historic well, all within easy reach of the beautiful beaches of Cardigan.

GoBongo

Take the wheel of these sleek vans, fully equipped with kitchen equipment, enough room to sleep up to six people and even widescreen DVD players. The team can provide kit and advice if you're planning on an adventure. It's a great way to get around Wales at any time of year.

Beacons Campers

Right at the foot of the Brecon Beacons, you can choose from a fleet of vehicles ranging from a classic VW camper (from 1966) to an enormous motorhome with enough space and gadgets to keep large clans happy. Cooking facilities are provided, with the beautiful Gower coastline a short drive away.
