If you’re looking to purchase a caravan in Wales, you’re spoilt for choice for locations to enjoy your staycations. You could head north and search in the Scottish Highlands, choose from a wide variety of English landscapes or cross over the Irish Sea. However, at Salop Leisure, we’re firm believers that there isn’t an area better for caravan ownership than Wales. Here are some of the reasons why you should look into buying a holiday home in Wales, and the benefits that you’ll reap from your investment.
It may be an obvious one, but Wales boasts some stunning landscapes – and seascapes – that shouldn’t be taken for granted. There are few areas in the UK that offer as much natural beauty as Mid Wales. In fact, over a quarter of the country is classed as either a national park or an Area of Outstanding National Beauty with the skyline constantly dominated by Snowdonia National Park. Many of our parks offer views of the iconic mountain range from the comfort of your new holiday home – explore our holiday parks to find your perfect location.
A culture like no other
Whether it’s inland or overseas, each country has its own unique culture that must be seen first-hand to be believed. Wales is no different – while the country is drenched in history, you’ll also be treated to a number of events throughout the year that help educate and entertain. Whether you’re in the mood for laughter, live music, or just a celebration; Wales has something for everyone. This is one of the many reasons why it’s the perfect family holiday location. Owning a holiday home puts you right in the centre of the local community, where you can fully immerse yourself in the Welsh way of life and experience something new and different every day.
Whilst most famous for its impressive mountain ranges, Wales is home to a number of wonderful seaside towns. You’ll find these dotted across the coastline and all of them offer a traditional British seaside feel with its own twist. Whether it be the bustling town of Aberystwyth, or the serene atmosphere of Cardigan Bay; many of our holiday parks are in prime locations where the beach is never too far away. Even our inland parks have a spectacular beach just 1 hours’ drive away.
Save on your travel costs
Travelling abroad is always something to look forward to, but it can be stressful – and time consuming – travelling to and from your destination. Passports, delays, suitcases, the list of stressful tasks you have to complete before even setting off can often have us wondering if it’s all worth it. In comparison, Wales is local (even if you live 3 hours away), meaning you can take your car and set off all in your own time, without having to worry about borders or luggage allowance. Enjoy a peaceful and calm journey, at your leisure, have the freedom to take whatever you need and get ready for a fuss-free holiday. There’s no baggage limits or flight times to catch – we can’t do anything about the potential traffic you’ll encounter on the roads, but we can promise you a 5-star experience each time you visit your holiday home in Wales. As you’ll be travelling by car, you’ll also have the freedom to set off to any of the many linked locations nearby to our holiday parks in Wales.
More for your money
Even if you’re only going to be staying for a couple weeks of the year, the cost of living in Wales is noticeably lower than anywhere else in the UK. If you opt to eat out or do your weekly grocery shop, you won’t have to worry about spending your budget all at once. Spend your first visits sampling the local cuisines and taking in the charm and character typical of pubs and cafes throughout Wales. Who knows, you could maybe find your new local while staying in your home from home!
