Visit South Wales

Croeso i de Cymru – welcome to South Wales! The great thing about camping in South Wales is that you get all the fun of visiting another country –Welsh language signs, beautiful scenery, different food and culture – yet it’s fairly close to home. Whether you plan to visit the capital city, Cardiff, with its ancient castle and waterfront complex, or prefer the scenic solace of the Brecon Beacons National Park, camping in South Wales opens the door to a host of recreational activities in beautiful surroundings.

Great reasons to go camping in South Wales

There are plenty of campsites in South Wales, from family-friendly farm sites to larger campsites that have full hook-ups, on-site pubs and even a swimming pool. Caravanning in South Wales is equally popular, whether you tow your own vehicle or choose an on-site caravan with all mod cons. 

Many visitors choose to visit South Wales for its peaceful unspoilt beauty, perhaps visiting the scenic Wye Valley and Vale of Usk with its plethora of castles, or exploring the Valleys of South Wales around Cardiff. This area has many fascinating cultural attractions such as the Big Pit National Coal Museum, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the stately home and hidden gardens at Dewstow House. The Welsh culture is alive and kicking in South Wales, as the bi-lingual signs in Welsh and English clearly indicate.

Quaint towns with their slate cottages and coal mining history provide charming tea shops selling Welsh cakes and bara brith. Cafés are a good place to enjoy traditional Welsh delicacies such as Welsh rarebit, or a hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs and laverbread (seaweed). That’s what camping holidays in South Wales are all about!

Camping in Swansea

Easy to reach from the M4, camping in the Swansea area allows you to enjoy beautiful Swansea Bay and explore the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. The Gower Peninsula, said to be the jewel in Wales’s resplendent crown, is well-known for its beautiful bays of golden sand and was the first Designated Area of Natural Beauty. Within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons and the impressive CarregCennan Castle, camping in Swansea also puts you within easy reach of urban conveniences, markets and shopping in the vibrant city centre.

The growing trend for luxury camping or glamping in South Wales is a popular option in this area. Converted shepherd’s huts and other unusual buildings offer all the comforts of home with outstanding scenery right on the doorstep.  

Camping in Pembrokeshire

Camping in the extreme southwest of Wales puts you in the heart of Pembrokeshire, one of the most scenic areas of the UK. You’ll find plenty of breathtaking locations when you go camping in Pembrokeshire, from clifftop campsites to friendly dairy farms.
