Ceredigion Wales

New Quay is not to be confused with Newquay in Cornwall, this is a little gem of a town on the coast of West Wales in Cardigan Bay. The beach is a horse shoe shape with a small harbour to the southern end where the boats are moored and the majority of the sunbathing happens to the northern end of this delightful, picturesque and golden sandy beach. This is a family based town, really quite elegant with lots on offer and the wildlife on the coastline around New Quay is amazing. There is a lot to do here from coasteering to wildlife cruises along the coastline, it is great for walking and cycling and anything to do with the beach!

Quay West Holiday Park really could not be better positioned, right in the middle of the beach making this our top choice for a beach side holiday park in Wales. Quay West Holiday Park is part of the Haven Group of Holiday Parks and you get a family based holiday park with all of the facilities and entertainment on site. This includes an entertainment venue, indoor and outdoor pools, lots of places to eat and drink and lots of activities and things to do on site throughout the day and night including a kids club. We love the park but we really think that New Quay in Ceredigion is really special, such a stunningly beautiful part of the world making it one of our best holiday parks in Wales.

Barmouth, Gwynedd, North Wales

Barmouth Bay Holiday Park is set to the north of Barmouth in Tal-y-Bont in Gwynedd with easy access to Snowdonia and is within the Snowdonia National park and is one of our best Away Resorts holiday parks. There is direct access to the beach from the park, by direct access we mean a very short walk across the sand dunes and you are right on the beach. This is shingle at high tide but when the tide is out, there is a great expanse of sand that leads all the way to Llanaber. The beach is so big that it never really gets crowded, even though it is one of the most popular beaches in Wales and on good days, you can get some great surf here as well.

Barmouth Bay Holiday Park is literally a stone’s throw from the beach, set with marshland to the side, a wildlife haven. The park has an indoor pool, adventure playground, sports court and launderette but there is no pub or restaurant or entertainment venue here, this is all about the beach! It is a family holiday park that is set with a stunning backdrop of Snowdonia and the beach is the main draw, perfect for a family holiday on a relaxing park that is informal and friendly.
