Christmas is all about spending quality time with your family and friends, and what better way to make some festive memories together than planning a staycation to North Wales. You can all relax, share the excitement of a holiday and embrace the festive cheer together.
North Wales comes to life at Christmas, with a wonderful range of magical activities, food and drink; the area is likely to really get you in the mood for your family break and give you the Christmas feel.
North Wales is well-known and frequently visited for its diverse and breath-taking landscape. As the seasons change and we’re in the depths of winter over the Christmas period, the scenery doesn’t disappoint. The thick picturesque woodlands, crashing waterfalls, stunning beaches and dramatic mountains are perfect for your family’s festive snaps. Pop on your Father Christmas hats and find the perfect Welsh location for your perfect family picture. Due to the high peaks and crags, you may even be lucky enough to enjoy a dreamy white Christmas!
Some of the Welsh Christmas traditions are as old as the historical castles and walls of the buildings that still stand today. You will find that many of the old Welsh traditions are still celebrated and enjoyed over the festive season, to this day. Most people indulge their sweet tooth during the merriments, and the Welsh are no different. One of the well-loved traditions is making Taffy on Christmas Eve. A type of toffee, the Taffy is made and savoured by the whole family, while they take part in games, storytelling and enjoy a meal together. Why not have a go at making your own Welsh Taffy during your stay at one of our North Wales caravan parks?
