With ongoing confusion and uncertainty surrounding foreign travel, caravan holidays in the UK have never been more popular. And given some of the beautiful parks and destinations we have here – it’s hardly a surprise.

Wales is a small country, but it has plenty to choose from when it comes to caravan and holiday parks.

We’ve done the research so that you don’t have to. Here are the 13 best caravan holidays in Wales.

If you love your countryside, you’ll love the Gaer Hyfryd caravan site, too.
