Wales may not be the largest country in the UK, but thanks to its captivating landscapes and diverse countryside, it’s home to some of the best areas for exploration on foot. Our seven holiday parks dotted around the coast serve as ideal bases for walking journeys through the heart of this enchanting country. 

From the rugged cliffs of Three Cliffs Bay to the dramatic trails around Aber Falls and the coastal allure of Marloes Peninsula, Wales reveals its true essence when discovered step by step. Join us as we list our favourite walks in Wales, ensuring that every stroll becomes a memorable adventure filled with scenic wonders.
