Top 5 caravan sites in Wales

27 January 2015 ( 01 March 2019 )

The beautiful and varied landscape of Wales offers something for everyone, from rolling sandy beaches to stunning mountains. Read our suggestions for top touring caravan sites in Wales.

Gower Beach, South Wales
Wales is home to some of Britain's most stunning beaches, including Gower in South Wales

Kingsbridge Caravan Park, Beaumaris, Anglesey

This family run site racks up eco awards as a matter of course, including the prestigious David Bellamy Award for Conservation. It also sponsors the island’s red squirrel campaign. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s a great site, with 50 touring caravan pitches.

Set in surrounding farmland, it’s perfect for exploring this surprisingly unheralded holiday island. There are miles of fantastic beaches to rival those in south Wales, the sweeping Red Wharf Bay is a must-visit; it’s close to the Tudor castle in Beaumaris itself; and the tongue-twister of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is just a few miles down the road.

A drive back over the Britannia Bridge, originally designed by Robert Stephenson, and you’re soon in Snowdonia. Gwych!

Open: March 1 – October 31

Pitches per night: From £18 low; £24 high (‘senior citizens’ can enjoy a discounted rate in the low season of £16).

Visit; 01248 490636

Llwyn Ffynnon Caravan Park, Yffor, Gwnedd

Travelling along the north coast of Wales you’d think it was the epicentre of global touring. There is so much choice of sites. This is a family run gem on the stunning Leyn Peninsula, three miles inland from the dramatic coastline and the small town of Pwllheli, in the shadow of Snowdonia with castles and dramatic vistas at every turn.

Llwyn Ffynnon Caravan Park is perfect for leisurely strolling or more strenuous walking. It’s a favourite of hardy divers and you can fill up your air tanks on-site. You can fill up with real ale, too, on the site’s small but welcoming ‘pub’, too. And no arguments who’s driving home!

Open: March 1 – October 31

Pitches per night: Touring caravans, pop-up trailer tents and motorhomes from £25.

The Old Station Caravan Park, New Radnor, Powys

Not one for beachcombers being set in the heart of rural mid-Wales, but certainly bibliophiles will appreciate this lovely site’s relative nearness to Hay-on Wye, just a scenic 30 minute drive away.

The site boasts its own tea room, and if walking is your ideal pursuit you’ll be hard-pushed to find a better location. The ticket office has been turned into a holiday cottage but the old good shed and crane is still there for a sniff of steam powered nostalgia.

Open: Year-round

Pitch per night: From £14 low; £16 mid; £18.50 high

Visit; 01544 350543

Llwyngwair Manor Holiday Park, Newport, Pembrokeshire

A manor house with spacious grounds to accommodate 90 touring spaces, not to mention camping, pine lodges and apartments. With its river coursing through the grounds and an array of birdlife in the woodland it’s perfect for trout fishing, twitchers and just lovers of the peaceful life.

Ideal for exploring the rolling countryside, enjoying the boating in the Afon Hyfer (River Nevern) which flows into Newport Bay and enjoying the nearby beaches.

Open: March 31 – October 31

Pitches per night: From £16 low; £22 high

Visit; 01239 820498

If dark-sky photography is an as-yet-unfulfilled hobby, then Trellyn is just the place. 

Located in beautiful Pembrokeshire, Trellyn has so little light pollution that it is the ideal place for a spot of astro-photography.

You can also book a place on one of the bush craft courses they run, cook your own pizza in the onsite pizza oven, or buy and cook a freshly caught lobster!
