Whether you’re looking for castles, the seashore, or the great outdoors some of the best campsites in Wales offer relaxing farm stays to adventures in Snowdonia.
Where: Isle of Anglesey, North Wales
This campsite in Wales has received multiple awards, including a four-star rating from the Wales Tourist Board. The park is ideal for visitors to the Isle and provides everything you’ll need to have a pleasant stay at any time of year. All pitches have power, a small shop where you can stock up on essentials, a playground for the kids to burn off steam, and plenty of open room to roam. They also sell Calor Gas, so you’ll be covered if you run out during your stay.
The Anglesey Coastal Path is 130 miles long, with lots to see and do along the way, making it a great site to set up a tent for a cycling or walking holiday with the family. The sea arches at Bwa Gwyn, Ynys Y Fydlyn, and Porth Wen, as well as the South Stack Lighthouse and Holyhead Mountain, are all worth seeing. If you take a diversion from the trail, you can try your hand at surfing, sailing, or kayaking from one of Anglesey’s many beaches. Six beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag, so you’re sure to find one that will be remembered by your family for years to come. We recommend stopping at Llanddwyn Beach just to take in the breathtaking vistas of Snowdonia in the distance; it’s truly a sight to behold.
Where: Conwy, North Wales
Barcdy is the park for you and your family if you desire peace and quiet and to get close to nature on your Wales vacation. It’s remote enough that the hustle and bustle of the larger cities nearby won’t ruin your vacation, and it’s close to many of the attractions that draw visitors to Conwy. Its fully serviced, all-weather touring plots are appropriate for most RVs, and it has everything you need on-site, including a laundromat, hot water, bathrooms and toilets, gas, and the all-important hairdryer! There are other shops less than a mile away if you need anything more for your trip.
There is so much to do in the area that the entire family can participate in and enjoy. From trekking up mountains like Pen Y Fan and Snowdon, which have child-friendly pathways (or taking the train if you feel tired), to surfing classes and courses at Surf Snowdonia Adventure Parc, which is only a fifteen-minute drive away. You may also participate in Splash & Crash at Surf Snowdonia, where you leap off a tall platform onto a giant inflatable below, which is a lot of fun! Zip World Fforest is also only fifteen minutes away, where you may sledge through the forest in your own personal roller coaster, bounce through the forest on the Treetop Nets, or make your way through the Zip Safari Ropes Course. There’s even a large swing called the Skyride where you can scream while pretending to soar! If all of that action is too much for you, head to the shore and spend a day relaxing at Conwy Castle and Conwy Morfa Beach.
Where: Pwllheli, North Wales
Hafan Y Mor Holiday Park takes pleasure in providing an enjoyable family atmosphere regardless of the weather. There’s plenty to do at this Haven park, from archery, fencing, and Nature Rocks activities to sliding, splashing, and swimming in their magnificent pool complex or taking on the heights on their Aerial Adventure course, which is not for the faint of heart! All of the amenities and entertainment are included in the price of your pitch, so expect to pay more than you would at other, smaller parks in the region.
If you’re a beach-loving family, Black Rock Sands Beach, with its large sandy beach and undulating dunes, will provide all you need for a sunny family day out. There’s also vehicle access on the beach, so there’s no need to waste time looking for a parking spot nearby! Take a trip on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway to see the sights along its thirteen and a half-mile track through forests, past waterfalls and lakes, and up through the land climbing to up to seven hundred feet above sea level for those who want to see the area in a different mode of transportation than the family car (or if you simply love trains). If you have the time, it is highly advised that you take the train from Porthmadog Harbour. A visit to Criccieth Castle will satisfy any members of your group who enjoy learning about people who lived in the area in the past for a bit more of a historical masterclass. It’s perched atop a rugged hill overlooking Tremadog Bay and makes for a fun day out, especially if the weather cooperates. You’re also only a short distance from Snowdonia National Park, where you can enjoy the fresh air by taking a walk up a mountain, seeing the area’s various waterfalls, or simply having a picnic with the family. Whatever you choose to do during your time in Wales, you’ll want to return to finish what you started.
Where: Wrexham, North Wales
