As a Caravan Site in North Wales, we are lucky to be surrounded by nature on a daily basis as we are situated on 247 acres of farmland. This love of nature extends far beyond just an appreciation of our stunning surroundings, we work hard to conserve it as well as being proud Gold Award winners of the David Bellamy Conservation Awards every year since 2002. We also work alongside both the RSPB and the Wrexham Birdwatchers Association to ensure we are providing the right habitats for the local wildlife. But, why is nature so important to us?
Nature Fires Up the Imagination
The world we inhabit revolves around houses, offices, classrooms, shopping centres, and roads – all things that help us to live our lives in a comfortable and familiar way. However, sometimes it is good to get away from the norm and relax in nature in order to explore the unknown. Why not take a walk with the kids along Plassey’s two miles of nature trails and talk about which tree you think is the oldest? Think about what would this place look like at night? What wildlife lives around here? And so on. This simple act of being together and discussing the unknown can really fire up your imagination.
Everyone is Equal
It can be hard for families to connect with each other on a daily basis, with the kids at school and adults in the office. Spending some time together in a natural setting removes all barriers and allows everyone to focus on each other and spend some quality time together.
Most of the time in our daily lives we use quiet voices and behave in a certain way. Taking our families on holidays in North Wales, with all its wide open spaces to explore, means that we can all run-around and explore together, burning up energy and just having some fun! This year is a perfect year to spend some time at Plassey, one of the leading North Wales Caravan Sites, as it is Wales’s Year of Adventure.
It Connects Us to the Wider World
With the current emphasis on recycling and being ‘green’, actually going out and experiencing nature is a great way to get children to think about the world in which they live. Walk through the woods, look at our butterfly garden and wildflower meadow, and check out our fishponds. Nature is truly beautiful.
Learn Life Skills
There is no better place for both adults and children to learn new skills than outside. Discuss how you might build a fire if you were out in the woods somewhere, make a den to protect you from the elements, identify birds and bugs, look up at the stars at night and identify the constellations and so on. These are all important things to know that may come in useful one day!
