Christmas at Caravan Parks in North Wales

Image
You might think caravan parks in North Wales are only suitable for summer holiday but that is where you are wrong.

A few of the premier caravan parks in North Wales like Coed Helen Holiday Park in Caernarfon go the extra mile to offer just as much entertainment for you and the family in winter as they do in summer.

Its stunning surrounding Caernarfon countryside offers beautiful views of coastal North Wales, which looks just as breath-taking whether drenched in sunshine or sparkling with frost.

If the views and surrounding Snowdonia tourist attractions to the east were not enough Coed Helen prides itself on offering the ultimate holiday experience at any time of the year.

In the summer there is the outdoor pool and sun terrace but in the winter there is a whole host of fabulous Christmas themed events just around the corner. Whether you love the culture of Galeri Caernarfon or the historical fun of the steam trains the region has something very special to offer you at this festive time.…

The Conwy Feast actually has grown so big it covers several areas. The Conwy Quay is where most of the delicious food halls can be found. With over 150 food stalls to sample from you will be full by the end of the day. These halls are the perfect places to get gifts and try something new. In addition to the main food halls there are vendors selling delightful street food and the always hotly anticipated beer and champagne tent.

The Quaint Village of Betws Y Coed

Image
As soon as you step out the door of your charming bed and breakfast in Betws Y Coed, there’s a whole day of exploring that you simply have to jump right into as it’s one of the most idyllic regions across the whole of North Wales.
Translated to English as “Prayer house in the wood”, Betws is a true hidden gem of the north of Wales and with an estimated population of just 600, you can be assured that there are fewer more peaceful places to enjoy a day out in.
Located in the Snowdonia National Park, it is the perfect starting point for any who want to venture around the reserve itself. If you don’t fancy the heft trek up one of Snowdonia’s fearsome mountains and inclines, you can always enjoy the stunning views in Betws instead.
Easily accessible by road at just an hour away from Conwy, you can reach Betws Y Coed via the Waterloo Bridge which was built all the way back in 1815. There’s a real sense of archaism to be had when you stroll around this gorgeous village and it will be a wel…

Image
Why would you want to enjoy camping in Anglesey's St David's Holiday Parkin February? February is still part of winter and the weather can be rough so many do not consider camping do be the ideal holiday option.

Most people leave camping until the summer time. The weather is somewhat more reliable and warmer but this could lead to you having the same kind of holiday every year. Why not try something a bit different. Every winter we stay cooped up inside getting no exercise and not seeing any of the beautiful landscape around us. Only those who work in outdoor jobs or take part in plenty of winter exercise get to see just how beautiful February in Anglesey really is.

Anyone who works in conservation in Anglesey will tell you that you are most definitely missing out if you do not take the opportunity to enjoy Anglesey in every season, including February.

Camping in Anglesey in February could present you with a wholly new kind of holiday experience. Wrap up in warm clothes and…
