Wales for Families

There are stacks of things for families to enjoy in Wales. Stay on a farm or in one of the many self-catering cottages, houses and holiday parks in some wonderful family-friendly locations. Or why not make it a different experience and try camping in the woods in a tipi or next to the sea in a traditional yurt. It also doesn’t have to break the bank with lots of free attractions for the kids including taking an underground tour at Big Pit, or simply messing about on one of our glorious blue flag beaches. If it’s cycling or walking your clients are after, Wales has over 331 miles (532km) of traffic free routes or if they want more adrenaline why not get wet and take the kids surfing or coasteering.
