Wales is a small country with miles of coastline – meaning you’re never far from a mountain or the sea. And although you might not come back with a tan, Wales is still the perfect place for a holiday home. With breathtaking scenery and loads of great activities, you’re guaranteed to come home with some great memories, stunning photos and stories a plenty.
Enjoy miles of stunning coastline
Who says it’s not possible to have a beach holiday in the UK? Lydstep Beach HolidayPark is just ten minutes from Tenby – one of South Wales’ best-loved holiday resorts. It has miles of golden sands and boasts three blue flag beaches – a sign of the coastline’s outstanding cleanliness.
North, South and Castle beach are the most popular with tourists, and Harbour Beach offers a picturesque alternative. This sheltered beach has steps leading up to the town, which is just a few minutes walk away and perfect for sending someone on an ice cream run!
But your trip to the beach doesn’t have to stop there. Just down the road from Haven Quay West Holiday Park is Cardigan Bay, a prime location for dolphin spotting, which will truly give you a holiday to remember.
Another reason that people choose Wales for their holiday home is that there’s always plenty going on. Each summer South Wales plays host to numerous festivals and they’re all just a short distance from Kiln Park HolidayCentre Tenby.
The festival season kicks off with the Fishguard Folk festival – one of the county’s best small festivals. Fishguard has preserved the feel of a real Welsh town and its festival is filled with traditional music, dancing and workshops. It’s the perfect chance to give your family a taste of the ‘real’ Wales.
Speaking of the ‘real’ Wales, nothing gets more Welsh than the Eisteddfod. This annual celebration of Welsh music and culture dates back to the 12th century and is a ‘must-do’ in the Welsh summer calendar. It takes place in North and South Wales alternately and is not to be missed for all things Welsh.
South Wales’ stunning landscape is the perfect excuse to get outside and get active, and there’s no better opportunity to do so than at the Abergavenny Festival of Cycling. Line the streets to watch professional cyclists compete and budding cyclists – young or old – can also enter races.
