Wales is a fantastic spot for a family camping holiday and break, with the following campsites particularly highly recommended.
Despite its sweeping views across Snowdonia National Park, this site is only a 10-minute walk from Caernarfon with its castle and steam train. It has a special area for ball games, and you can use the open-air pool on the static caravan site next door (May-Sept). There are walking and cycle routes nearby, and beaches a short drive away.
A spectacular site, this is part of the National Showcaves Centre with its underground delights. A river gushes through, crashing off glacial boulders, while the pitches amongst trees, grassy knolls and rocks have gorgeous views. Facilities are limited but children adore the wildness, and there are shops within easy driving distance. The Gower coast is about 30km away.
Only a few kilometres from the beaches of the charming resort of New Quay yet deep in rolling countryside, this is a quiet, discreet spot with a fine play area and a whole field for ball games. The village grocery sells local produce, and there’s a wealth of beaches within easy reach, along with Cardigan itself.
A children’s delight, this lies right behind the dunes at Llangennith on Rhossili Bay, with its big sky and even bigger beach. It used to simply cater for surfers (and there are still plenty of shaggy, tanned chums around, and there’s a surf school nearby), but there are now two family fields with decent facilities, a play area and a family restaurant. Swansea is within easy reach. Tel: 01792 386204
Set in a landscaped park complete with stately home, this place gives children total freedom. It’s neat, and visitors can enjoy the benefits of the park – avenues of towering trees, a lake with swans, shops in outbuildings (including a pub-restaurant) and frequent festivals. It’s easy accessible from M4 and a short hop from Cardiff.
