Why you need to visit Wales

Posted on: Tuesday 30th of May 2017

A lot of people who hire a motorhome from us like to venture north of the border and visit Scotland for all that it has to offer; vibrant cities, idyllic landscapes, Mediterranean like beaches, and the North Coast 500.

Throw into the mix Scotland’s laws on wild camping and you can see why so many find it an appealing destination.

But wait…

…what if there was somewhere that offered equally beautiful scenery, thriving cities, ancient castles, and it only took half the time to get there?!

Then may we suggest Wales as your next holiday destination.

Mount Snowden

Wales is packed to the gills with things to do and see. With no fewer than three National Parks, Snowdonia, the Pembrokeshire Coast and the Brecon Beacons, each with countryside as varied and diverse as the next. You’ll find not only some of the best beaches in the world, but also some of the finest rivers and stunning scenery too.

The two bustling coastal cities of Swansea and Cardiff provide everything in the way of restaurants and bars to top quality shops and museums.

After somewhere a little more quaint?

St Davids is the smallest city in Britain and is an ideal spot for the Whale and Dolphin enthusiasts amongst you, as they have several operators who offer wildlife watching boat trips.


Or perhaps you’re after a small taste of Italy, then Portmeirion is for you. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, with brightly coloured buildings, with piazzas, Roman columns and pantiled roofs. One of Wales’ premier visitor attractions, the village is surrounded by 70 acres of exotic woodlands and mile after mile of scenic walks.


For the more adventurous of you Wales offers a plethora of outdoor activities, whether its scaling Mt Snowden, horse riding in the Brecon Beacons or surfing on the Gower Peninsula. But perhaps the most extreme of them all is a trip to Zipworld, home of a pair of mile long zip lines where riders can exceed 100mph, 500ft high and experience the nearest thing to flying.


So whether you’re looking to have a quiet break in tranquil seclusion or a non-stop action packed adventure, you’ll find it all in Wales…

…and only a 3 hour drive from our base in Chichester!
