Road Trip Wales - four unmissable locations

February 22, 2018 in Destinations

For your next holiday take a road trip to Wales! Land of song leeks and daffodils, this beautiful country deserves far more attention and praise then it receives. However, we are sure that will change when more adventurers like you see the land of hill and dale can make for one of the richest camping experiences one can have in the UK!

#1 Visit Snowdonia in a motorhome

If you get the chance to visit Snowdonia in a motorhome take it! The name itself comes from Snowdon, a mountain located in the region that is the tallest in Wales. The peak itself makes for a substantial hike and as you might have guessed a magnificent view. If it’s a nice sunny day and you fancy a dip, Harlech Beach will suit you just fine. The beach is beautiful and sandy with a large part of that allows dogs, also making it a great spot for man’s best friend. If you walk along the coast a bit you will also happen upon an oddly circular arrangement of stones the arrangement of which dates all the way back to the bronze age! There is also the famous Harlech Castle to visit. If you were feeling particularly productive, you could even try and build your own castle on the beach, though it would be quite difficult to rival size as the original.

#2 Visit Pembrokeshire in a motorhome

Visit Pembrokeshire for a lovely break in nature full of lovely walks and quaint villages. Doing so in a motorhome will give you even more of a chance  
Folly farm is a much loved destination for families on holiday all year round. The farm has rides, exotic wildlife and even has an aquarium. One of the failsafe things about Folly farm is it has both outdoors and indoors attractions, making it a solid choice for a day’s fun during the colder wetter months.

If seeing the outdoors on foot is more to your liking we have another top suggestion of what to do on your visit to Pembrokeshire… The coastal path is a must do on your visit, especially if you are a fan of hikes. The route contains all things quaint and coastal from picturesque fishing villages to rustic horse paddocks and awe inspiring cliffsides. Walking this route can be done in around 4 hours which will give you a nice variety of vistas along the way as well as being an active day out! As the area of the walk has national trail status and comes under the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and wildlife rich islands, you should see your fair share of wildlife too. Amongst the beaches there are also some that have decent swell for those bodyboarders and surfers out there!

#3 Visit Brecon Beacons National Park

Everyone who wants to get a taste of Welsh natural splendour needs to visit Brecon Beacons National park. The Brecon Beacons are a mountain range that is situated in South Wales full of character and natural splendour. 
A lovely outdoors excursion here would be to walk along the Beacons way. This 95 mile footpath goes through a picturesque landscape of mountains and ancient ruins and also allows you to hike to the top of Pen y Fan; a must do for keen walkers as it is the tallest peak in South Wales.

This island located in North Wales is not only it’s largest but the 7th largest in the whole of the British Isles. There are several great options when it comes to campsites that pretty much cover most areas of the island. One of our favourites is Tyddyn Isaf is an award winning 5 star campsite on the coast with some stunning views down to the beach and the Irish sea.
