There are few places more stunning than the South Wales coast, and that’s just when it comes to going on a short holiday. Imagine having a permanent place to pitch yourself and the loved ones, a place that you could return to as much as you please.  

That vision can be made a reality at one of our sensational South Wales holiday parks. With loads of caravans for sale, they’re all in prime positions to bring you the best of this region as an owner. Before we take you through why you should consider buying a static caravan in South Wales, let's hear from some of our South Wales owners. 

Here’s what Ms Ros Clift has to say about being an owner in South Wales: ‘'Our caravan is the only place we can truly relax. Since buying we’ve been able to take regular time off from our demanding business. There’s nothing better than waking up and taking our two dogs straight down for a run on the beach.’'

South Wales is home to four of our pristine holiday parks. Kiln Park, Penally Court and Lydstep Beach holiday parks are centred around the Pembrokeshire gem of Tenby, one of the most popular places in Wales for visitors and an area that you could call your second home. 

Quay West Holiday Park is on the west Wales coast, a serene space that gives you an escape from the hustle and bustle every minute of the day.

For all South Wales’ scenery, it’s also a practical place to set up a second home. Being just a walk or short drive from Tenby also puts you close to all the amenities you’d expect from your daily life in a busier area.  

Despite Quay West Holiday Park’s slightly more secluded location, there’s plenty of the above in both New Quay and Aberaeron, so there’s no shortness of options here either.

3. A place with community at its heart

South Wales isn’t just a region to bring your loved ones to, it’s a place where you can make even more long-lasting friendships. By becoming an owner, you’ll be joining a tight-knit community, and there are loads of ways to develop these relationships both on and off park. 

There are plenty of local clubs to get involved with. Places like Trefloyne Golf Course outside Tenby are great for beginners and experts alike, with a handy driving range where you can practice your swing. Further into town you’ll find a relaxing bowling green which is also just a stone’s throw from the coast, and Tenby Rugby Club is a much-loved local favourite with teams for kids all the way up to veterans of the sport.

Few places do scenery quite like South Wales, and this region of globally recognised landscapes is the perfect place for a holiday home. This is epitomised by the stunning set of beaches that are within driving distance of our holiday parks. Places like Rhossili Bay on the Gower Peninsula and Freshwater West on the Pembrokeshire coast have gained deserved recognition for their immense beauty, joining a prestigious club of the world’s most talked about stretches of sand. 

By choosing a Haven holiday home in South Wales, you’re just steps from a soothing combination of coastline and countryside. A walk, jog, or cycle is always brought up a notch by the breath of fresh air that’s a given here, all day, every day.

Carew Castle: a slice of Welsh history

South Wales is full of attractions that are appealing all-year round. The sight of the towering Tenby Castle standing watch over the town’s coastline never gets old. Built by the Normans in the 12th century, it’s a perfect reminder of the area’s history. It and Carew Castle, its South Wales neighbour, are home to events throughout the year. 

For an extra special evening, you can head to a show at Tenby’s De Valence Pavilion or simply stay on your chosen park and enjoy one of the many owners-only events laid on throughout the year. The Haven summer party is a particular favourite in South Wales, a great way to spend quality time with your fellow owners.
