Like every other part of the UK camping in Wales is very enjoyable. You’ll never find yourself at a loose end, as there’s so much to see and do in the principality, especially if you’re in a tent, motorhome or caravan. However, when it comes to going on a camping holiday in Wales, where are the best campsites? The Glamorgan area is sometimes overlooked, but this part of South Wales has a number of great places to stay.
One of the best UK camping sites is in Glamorgan and is called Llandow Touring Caravan Park near the market town of Cowbridge. Within a short distance of Cardiff, you won’t be short of things to do, but it’s also in a secluded spot within the Vale of Glamorgan, and lies just three miles from the coast. For the children, there’s a play area, while nearby golf courses, horse riding centres and restaurants in Cowbridge means you’ll be occupied throughout your holiday.
If you fancy staying in a caravan, Trecco Bay Holiday Park comes highly commended by many who’ve stayed there. On site, there’s an indoor swimming pool, outdoor pool, games room, play area and even a restaurant and café, so you’ll find it hard to leave the site for all the activities on offer. This site has recently undergone a £7m makeover, although if you want to get out and explore, the Blue Flag certified beach is a short walk away should you want to take your kids to the seaside.
Brynhyfryd Camping and Caravanning near Bridgend is another site which has plenty of amenities to its name. However, what’s best about this site is how close it is to all the major towns and cities including Bridgend and Swansea, which is handy should you want to go sightseeing. The site itself has a shop, laundrette and washing-up area, so you won’t have to bring your washing-up bowl with you.
