If you are planning your holidays for the summer season and are thinking of staying in caravan parks in Snowdonia you are in for a treat.
North Wales has a number of high quality holiday parks throughout the region but caravan parks in Snowdonia remain some of the best. This is because they are perfect for those who really love to get close to nature and stay in tranquil, serene natural areas.
Staying in beautiful spacious caravan, cabins and lodges surrounded by woods, hills and waterfalls is a wonderful experience and the best part is you are never from nature or the best festivals anywhere around.
