Your Staycation starts here…
It looks like 2021 is going to be another year of staycations whilst we try to adjust to the new ‘norm’ and balance maintaining a social distance whilst still exploring and enjoying time off on holidays. Campervan travel is one of the best ways to explore the UK giving you the freedom to roam whilst staying away from other people as much as possible, and what better way than in the iconic, classic VW campervan.
Our colourful classic VW campervans are ideal for Brits looking for an alternative holiday to get away from it all and discover the beauty that’s Wales.
A classic VW campervan allows a little home away from home – a cosy space to call your own. For those who aren't familiar with campervans, the backseat folds down to make a double bed, and the roof pops up to make another sleeping space above. There is an in-built kitchen with gas hob, sink and fridge, and all the cooking utensils you need to whip up a family feast. And, if you wish to be self-contained then for a small extra charge, you can take a portable toilet with a privacy tent too!
There’s a Campervan Staycation for everyone
We’re living in a stressful, unprecedented times, and everyone deserves a break. A campervan holiday offers you the chance to get out into the wide-open spaces of our beautiful Welsh countryside, breath in some fresh air and let nature be your entertainment.
It’s easy to forget how beautiful the Wales is and how much we have to explore on our doorstep. There are so many places throughout Wales which have something to offer for everyone. We have beautiful beaches, big craggy mountains, wild moorlands, rolling hills, picturesque towns and villages, and a few castles to explore too. With so much natural beauty and cultural heritage at your fingertips, staycations in Wales make perfect sense!

• Family campervan holidays
The lockdown period of 2020, firebreaks, and national and local restrictions have impacted on our lives in a variety of ways. For some of us, we’ve spent far too long by ourselves and are craving social interaction. A family campervan holiday is great way to shake off that cabin fever and meet up with your support bubble members or just enjoy time out with your family in a wonderfully social but safe environment.
Kids just love campervans. They love climbing around in them, sticking their heads out the windows and pretending to drive them. They love playing board games, and eating alfresco under the stars, and best of all they love sleeping in them! A campervan adventure, in one of our fun, colourful classic VW campervans will be something your kids will still remember when they have their own, and this will be the family holiday you will never forget.
• Going solo or just for two!
On the other hand, some of us are actually craving a little bit of peace and quiet, which is why a solo adventure or an adventure just for two in one of our classic VW campervans might be the perfect option! We’re guessing your screen time has reached a new peak, so maybe a digital detox in the wilds of Snowdonia will be just the thing to destress and get away from it all.
There is so much to be discovered in Snowdonia, with its beautiful rugged coastlines and picturesque beaches. From mountains, castles, and coast, you’ll find no shortage of amazing views on the road, things to do, and places to stay.
If walking is your thing there’s no better place, not sure where to go then check out some of our favourite local walks. For the more adventurous go wild swimming in Snowdonia’s mountain lakes, mountain bike on Coed y Brenin’s world class trails or if that’s a bit much then take a leisurely bike ride along the stunning Mawddach trail. For the adrenaline junky fly down zip wires, try a high rope cavern adventure, or a coasteering adventure.
• Dog-friendly campervan road trips
All of our campervans are dog friendly, so if you’ve discovered a newfound love for walking during your allotted exercise outings and fancy a walking holiday with your four-legged friend then a canine campervan adventure in Wales has a lot to offer.
With a different view to wake up to everyday, the minute you open your campervan door you will be living amongst nature, to explore an endless choice of walks – you choose from stunning coastal walks to immersing yourself in the dramatic landscape of the mountains of Snowdonia. Undecided? Visit our ’Local Walks’ page for a bit of inspiration and see where our dogs, Archie and Tess have enjoyed their time in Snowdonia.
Be sure to check out our guide to campervanning with dogs ’Dogs love campervan adventures too!’.
Worried about campsites?
Don’t be. It’s different, but the new ‘norm’ is less crowding, and ultra clean shared facilities. Pitches are more spread out and the showers and toilets are going to be super clean, so look out for the “We’re Good To Go” the official UK mark to signal that your chosen campsite has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. Still a bit worried, then for a little extra take one of our portable toilets and privacy tents for peace of mind.
