We all know the classic (and amazing) attractions in Wales; Snowdonia, Aberdovey, Barmouth…but there are plenty of incredible gems that few people know about but definitely should. Owners of holiday homes in one of our Wales based caravan parks are well placed for exploring these hidden gems, and discovering new ones!
The Witches Cauldron is a magnificent hidden cave in Ceibwr Bay, and it can only be accessed by sea kayak or walking for half an hour along the Coastal Path. The water in this wonderful collapsed cave is emerald green! There’s no other place like it in Wales and it is well worth a trip to this hidden gem.
Porthor, also known as the ‘Whistling Sands’ beach due to the unique, whistle-like sound that comes from walking on the sand, is an unspoilt, raw beauty in Wales. Close to Gwynedd Caravan Park site and just over an hours’ drive from Castle View, Porthor is an easily accessible beach in Wales from one of our caravan parks, but is quiet and unspoilt nonetheless. Its undiluted beauty is only amplified by the lack of tourist activity at Porthor and remains a hidden gem on the Welsh coast.
One of the oldest ruins in Wales, Llanthony stands at 900 years old! Not only is this ruin beautifully unique in itself, its grand backdrop of rolling Welsh hills and the Black Mountains adds to its mythical appeal. And if this hidden nugget of Welsh history wasn’t enough, there’s a quaint country pub and restaurant within the priory – a part of the original 12th century structure – that serves real ales and country food.
Taking the term ‘hidden’ gem to another level, St Govan’s is a tiny hermit’s cell nestled into the cliffs of South Pembrokeshire. This tiny ‘building’, if it can be called such a thing, is so well camouflaged by the rocks around it, you would hardly believe someone once lived inside it. This mysterious hidden gem is certainly worth a trip to the south side of Wales, no matter where your caravan park is!
Ready to explore the unexplored? Take a look at some of our available caravans, and start experiencing these hidden gems – or sticking to the main attractions – when you own a caravan in Wales, your adventures are up to you!
