There are few places in the world that can top the romance that most people associate with Wales. Whether you are from the UK or overseas, everyone wants to go to Wales, and with good reason. With a green undulating landscape and mystic castles, superb smugglers beaches and so much more to explore, it’s little wonder that Wales is listed on most people’s wish lists as a holiday destination.
The Perfect Location to Introduce Camping to Your Family
If you enjoy camping, you will love camping in Wales. Waking up each morning to the sensational views offered by a beach, the highlands, or lakeside tranquillity is definitely an experience you will not want to miss. It is not only a camping paradise for couples or singles. This beautiful country is the perfect place for parents to introduce their children to the joys of camping.
Wales is well equipped to welcome campers, with family friendly campsites established throughout the country. Even novice campers who are experimenting with camping as an alternative to hotel accommodation will love the options of campgrounds attached to many beautiful old homes and a welcome from the owners, who have opened their gardens to be enjoyed by everyone.
This is What Memories Are Made Of
Camping at a site on a working farm or in the grounds of an old castle or mansion is not only exciting but unlike traditional campsites, most allow you the pleasure of an open wood fire, creating memories of toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate after a traditional campfire cooked dinner. For those who do not want to sleep under canvas, many of these non-traditional campsites provide bunkhouses and bed and breakfast options. It may be just the backup plan you need if you want to take a camping holiday with the kids, but worry about whether they will find it as pleasurable as you do.
Whilst it is always useful to have a car when camping, if you are travelling with just backpacks, the novel way of seeing the country is to take the steam train. Wales is crisscrossed by the tracks and some of the most beautiful scenery Wales has to offer can be reached by train. Imagine the anticipation and excitement your whole family will feel, by starting their holiday adventure in an open carriage behind a steam train.
Forget the Pressures of Life
Travelling by road is a joy in Wales as well. With the car loaded up, Welsh roads will take you through highlands covered in yellow and purple blooms. Most tourists head for the Island of Anglesey or the Gower Peninsula to enjoy the beautiful coastline. Here waits serenity and clean beaches and the perfect way to relax and to forget the pressures of life waiting for you at home.
Pembrokeshire National Park is the only coastal National Park in the UK. Here visitors can join in activities that are organised by the Park Rangers, participate in bird watching, and crab catching activities whilst enjoying the amazing scenery.
The Brecon Beacons National Park is the ideal place to stay for those who want to combine hiking and camping. Mountainous and remote, it is the ideal location to feel close to nature. There are no cars allowed in this area, and it will appeal to those who want seclusion. Families with older children and couples who enjoy mountain bike riding will love biking in this region.
The View from Your Camp Kitchen
If you are travelling into the North of Wales, an ideal place to base your campsite is at Shell Island. Here, campers are treated to the sights and sounds of Cardigan Bay and the Snowdonia National Park. This campsite is one of the biggest in Europe. Like so many other of the picturesque sites in Wales, there is no better place to view the world from “your kitchen window.”
Kiln Park touring is a great option for anyone visiting Wales on a camping holiday and it is sure to be something that both adults and kids will remember for a long time to come.
