More and more Brits are choosing to holiday closer to home, swapping the air miles and long haul destinations for their own local heritage and comforts of a caravan park. We often take for granted what is quite literally on our doorstep, such as the architecture steeped in history and the breathtaking vistas that are a mere car trip away.
North Wales has a lot to offer the holiday maker. Whether you want to revel in the outdoors, relax on a sandy beach or take in the medieval history, you’re sure to find something to fill your boots. And after a busy day of drinking it all in, what could be better than returning to the warmth and comfort of your own static home, packed with the perfect amenities to create a relaxing, homely atmosphere.
Lyons Holiday Parks can provide this and much more. With 10 locations to choose from, and the majority perched on the coastline of North Wales, you’re truly spoilt for choice.
For The Beach Bum
You don’t need to cross the Atlantic Ocean to find sandy beaches, you may even be shocked to learn that our tiny island is home to some of the most beautiful stretches of coastline. North Wales is no exception, and you can be dipping your toes into warm sand and refreshing waters within minutes if you were to stay at Lyons Holiday Park. Lido beach, in Prestatyn, is a family friendly beach perfect for relaxing summer days in the sun. Pack up a picnic and watch the kids paddle, build sandcastles or fly kites. The beach itself is clean and also has a wide promenade that is accessible for those with disabilities and pushchairs. The caravan park itself is literally 5 minutes away too.
For The Adventurer
If you have little adventurers in your brood, then travel a little further along the coastline to Rhyl, where you’ll find the Robin Hood Holiday Park. Part of the Lyons group, this park offers a broad activity programme for both day and night. Not only is it close to the sea, it has its own Splash Zone too! The best bit is there’s also adventure outside of the park. Take yourself go the East Parade where you can receive tuition into kite surfing and paddle boarding. There’s also a miniature railway, the oldest in Britain in fact, for the miniature train enthusiasts.
For The Historian
Nestled in the peaceful Vale of Clywd is Lyons Eryl Hall, which offers a more luxurious stay but for the budget conscious. You enter through large stone gates and up an impressive tree lined driveway. This park overlooks the historic town of St. Asaph, which is home to a beautiful cathedral that dates back to the 13th century. A short drive away in Bodelwyddan, you can drink in the stunning castle and it’s grounds. Located in impressive woodlands, this historic house and museum is a family friendly day out and features a WW1 replica trench experience.
And Much More…
This brief overview of what North Wales has to offer is only the beginning. Other Lyons Parks can open you up to a truly terrific holiday, with numerous attractions a stones throw from your own static caravan. Worth a mention is “Zip World”, “Little Mountain Outdoors” and “Greenwood Family Park”. Another benefit of owning your own static caravan is when you’re not using it, you can rent it out to others and make use of it as a means of income. A truly smart investment indeed.
