    So many people forget how good England and Wales are for family holidays! This just shows how amazing holidays are which you don’t need a plane for.

    What age do you think Haven holidays are best suited for children?

      We stayed in the Haven in Porthmadog last year with our 2 year old and she loved it, backed right onto the beach. The onsite facilities were decent for a holiday park nothing too extravagant , pool, games, park and small indoor soft play. Enough to keep us entertained for 3 days. There were lots of 8-14 year olds smashing around who were well catered for with arcades and shows and bowling etc.

    Woah, our last experience in North Wales was pretty poor (we’re not campers at the best of times and the weather was awful) but this puts things in a different light. Very thorough write up!

    Great article. We love going to north wales as it’s so easy to get to and as you say there is so much to do that’s hidden.

    Looks like a great trip. More to north wales than Snowdon then it appears!
    (love the humble time bragg slipped in there! haha)
    Definitely worth having a look on your doorstep for plenty of getaway options.
    Good to see you braving the UK weather and doing the caravanning too.

    North Wales is amazing. Went youth hostelling and camping up there in my late teens; camped just outside Capel Curig at the foot of Tryfan and it was amazing scenery. Did the trip up Snowdon and going to take the family back before too long.

    Haven holidays are pretty damn good as well!

    We holiday in the UK quite alot mainly south coast line and butlins minehead. however we have never been to north Wales. I have a 2 and half year old and 18week baby. So just generally stick to what we no. After reading this and currently considering next years holiday. Does any one have a resort / camp or area recomendation that would be suitable for my young family?

    Looks good. May have to give it a visit.

    Looks like things have changed at Haven since I was a lad. Even back then they were great family holidays. On site facilities/activities are normally varied and it also acts as a good base if you want to explore the local area.

    The Nature Rockz activity looks great and definitely something our 3.5yr old son would love!

    We have just booked a week at Hafan y mor, we love Haven, usually go to the Yorkshire coast but have been looking for a chance to do Wales. This discount was a perfect excuse!
