Relax and unwind with a caravan adventure in Wales
Heading through Wales by caravan or fancy a stay in a chalet? You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation in the great outdoors.
It's been 40 years since the first caravans arrived at Hidden Valley, in Welshpool, and the valley and wildlife retreat's popularity endures, picking up a string of awards over the decades.
Llandow, near market towns and the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, has been keeping holidayers relaxed for more than 20 years, while Our Welsh, in close proximity to Cardiff, offers 60 pitches in the company of the lambs on a working farm.
Enjoy the outdoors
If you're taking a break in the breathtaking Brecon Beacons, Pencelli Castle Park is a fine place to start your day from. The serviced pitches are near a village pub, and you'll be able to meet red deer in the farm surroundings before setting off on an adventure along the Taff Cycle Trail and the canal.
Another idyllic coastal trail lies in wait near Broad Haven, in Pembrokeshire, where Creampots is a family-run park close to Skomer Island – an ideal spot for a stroll or, if you're after an adrenaline rush, water sports.
By the River Usk, Pont Kemys Caravan and Camping Park is one of the best places to pull up in Monmouthshire, even offering a dog exercise area if you're planning to bring a pet along for the ride.
Snowdonia is always a spectacular place, and Hafan y Mor, on the edge of the National Park, is set within a 500-acre site, with a beach, boating, pool complex and go-karting among its attractions to keep all the family excited.
Between Black Rock Sands and the foothills, Greenacres looks out towards Tremadog Bay and is next to a two-mile Blue Flag rated beach. Wherever you explore, you'll find a cosy base to do it from.
On the Isle of Anglesey, Nant Newydd prides itself on its unspoilt sense of peace. There are plenty of places to stay on Anglesey, including Home Farm, Tyddyn Isaf and Minffordd – which is in a fishing village, and has play areas and plenty of outdoor tables.
For the glorious Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and St Davids Peninsula, spend a few nights at White Gate or Caerfai Bay, a Welsh Campsite of the Year winner with formidable views out to sea, not to mention some rare local residents in the form of the grey Atlantic seals which thrive in an area which is a haven for wildlife and heaven for beach fun.
Whether you're a walker or a windsurfer, the wealth of Welsh caravan sites always ensure excellent facilities and welcoming hosts.
