Introduction - Editor's picks for Wales sites

Whether you prefer a relaxing or an active holiday, beaches or mountains, historical or contemporary, you’ll find it all in Wales.

From beaches to castles, and the dizzy heights of Snowdon or the Brecon Beacons, Wales is a diverse landscape and a popular holiday destination.

  Erwlon Caravan & Camping Park, Carmarthenshire

Erwlon Caravan and Camping Park is located within walking distance of the pretty Welsh town of Llandovery, with its shops, pubs, and takeaways. Erwlon is a peaceful and well-maintained campsite offering high-quality facilities. The loos and showers are particularly well-appointed, with family rooms and accessible facilities.

Fishing, pony riding, and mountain boarding are all practised nearby, and the dramatic scenery of the Brecon Beacons is on the doorstep. This is a great area for walkers and cyclists to explore. Erwlon is just off the A40, but well screened from road noise, and within a short walk of buses to Brecon and Carmarthen. The campsite also offers bike hire to enable you to make the most of discovering the area.

Located at the foot of Snowdon in the Snowdonia National Park, this site boasts stunning views and is ideally located to visit the nearby mountains and the coast. The campsite facilities are immaculate, including toilet and shower blocks, parent and child room, family bathroom, accessible shower and toilet, launderette, well-equipped shop, and off licence and free WiFi.

Families won’t be short of activities with a games room, mini-golf, play area and a designated area for ball games. There is plenty to explore further afield, including the beach.

Fishing is free on the River Gwyrfai that borders the campsite and this is also a relaxing and pretty place for an evening walk.

Set a few miles away from the harbour town of Porthmadog, this high-quality campsite, set in over 50 acres, caters for motorhomes and caravans and is a few minutes’ drive from the superb beach at Black Rock Sands. All the caravan and motorhome pitches are set on hardstandings and have electric hook-ups or full-service facilities.

There are three toilet blocks with family washrooms and accessible facilities, plus a laundry room. The shop sells a range of food and drink, plus accessories and gifts. If you prefer not to cook there's a rustic bar and restaurant, Ty Mwg ‘Beer & Brisket’ Smokehouse, too.

You can directly access many of the mountain footpaths from the campsite, so pack your walking boots.

Located on a working hill farm, Fforest Fields is in a beautiful, rural location with two lakes, one can be used for swimming and kayaking. There are plenty of walks direct from the campsite through woodland and up to open moors.

There are two areas to the campsite, the original campsite, with a small mountain stream, has an intimate feel with pitches tucked away and a lot of natural planting.

The other field is more open with spectacular views down the valley to the hills beyond. A carbon neutral and award-winning facility provides showers, toilets, family rooms, washing up and drying rooms in a central courtyard area, along with a seasonal café and outdoor seating.
