Why Are Caravan Holidays in North Wales So Popular?

North Wales is shaping up for a bumper summer holiday season by the looks of things, with caravan holidays in North Wales becoming more and more popular. But why is this area becoming so popular and what does it have to offer holidaymakers?

Well, not only is North Wales building an enviable reputation as a hotspot for adventure sports, it recently received a glowing endorsement from ‘Travel Planet’ who named it fourth on the global ‘Best in Travel’ list of regions to visit for 2017. In fact, it was the only place in the UK to rank in the list at all. There are a million and one reasons why we completely agree with this ranking, of course, not least because the area is packed full of stunning scenery, wildlife havens and unbelievable adventure parks.

North Wales has long been a popular destination for visitors from the UK enjoying a little staycation, but it is increasingly becoming popular with overseas visitors as well. The Office for National Statistics reported recently that in 2016 there were 450,000 foreign trips made to Wales including visitors from China, Japan, Croatia, Hungary and Poland. Qatar Airlines has also recently announced that they are launching a new service from Cardiff Airport to Qatar – which will open up the area to visitors from the Middle East as well.

North Wales is packed full of old industrial sites that have been creatively converted into attractions that will appeal to all the family, including Surf Snowdonia, Bounce Below and Zip World. Zip World is one of the most fantastic successes in North Wales in recent years, as it houses the world’s fastest zip line in a former slate quarry in Bethesda. The site saw an unbelievable 210,000 visitors in 2016, and they are expecting the figure to increase to around 300,000 this year.

The abundance of great local food and drink in the area is another thing that is attracting visitors. There are a multitude of pubs and bars in the area for you to grab a quick bite at, or you could book yourself into one of the many restaurants instead – serving everything from soul food to seafood! You may also be lucky enough to be visiting us when one of the amazing local food festivals is on, such as the Gwledd Conwy Feast or Hamper Llangollen to name but two. Best thing is, you don’t need to eat out to enjoy a taste of Wales, as our shop on site sells local produce from the area for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own caravan.
