Caravan Sites, Caravan Parks and Campsites in West Glamorgan

As Wales second biggest city, Swansea lies within the historic county boundaries of Glamorgan - nicknamed 'Copperopolis' after the lucrative Cooper trade in the 19th century, why not make Swansea your next holiday destination. With caravans sites a plenty there is plenty of choice in Swansea.

Enjoy the cleanness of the Blue Flag marina that is Wales' Waterfront City. Travel to the seaside village of Mumbles which still has a Victorian pier, independent shops and boutiques, and several restaurants and cafes. Where as the south coast of Gower attracts walkers, with a path stretching from Mumbles Head across the cliff tops, beaches and coastal woodland to Rhossili, and is a magnet for caravanners interested in surfing or rock pooling

Autumn is a great time for a caravanning holiday to Swansea as the county hosts a Festival of Music and the Arts, when international orchestras and soloists visit and play at the Brangwyn Hall, which also houses graduated ceremonies from the University of Swansea (which is open to have a wonder round). Visitors can also go to the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea Museum and Dylan Thomas Centre.

Caravanners should try the local foods, cockles and laverbread which are sourced from the Loughor estuary, so long as you can mange to understand the locals – Welsh is still spoken in many parts of Wales, and some of the pronunciation can be a little hard to get your tongue round! Maybe even ask locally born Catherine Zeta Jones for some lessons if you happen to see her wandering around the Mumbles on your caravan travels.

With land stretching from the coast to the borders of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Neath and Port Talbot is a great for people interested in a caravan holiday that involves walking, mountain biking (Afan Forest Park has 5 adrenaline fuelled trails, some of best of the world in fact!) or any sort of outdoors exploring - or if you are in the area for the  World Rally Championships  at Margam Country Park .

Consisting of Neath, Port Talbot and Pontardawe and the five valleys, Vale of Neath, Dulais Valley, Afan Valley, Swansea Valley, Upper Amman Valley this county is a perfect mix of coast and uplands. Walkers can take advantage of this and also enjoy the new childhood trail in Taibach, named the ‘Richard Burton’ trail as it highlights many places which were important to Richard during his childhood and teenage years, whilst he was living in Taibach. Highlights include his former place of work and the school where his acting potential was recognised by teacher Philip Burton.

From water filled landscapes such as Gnoll Country Park (a large country park with lakes, cascading waterfalls and the ruins of the historic Gnoll mansion), Aberdulais Falls which are on the River Dulais and the blue flag Aberavon Beach resort (ideal for caravanners and campers with surfers and Kite boarders) to the Afan Forest Park, formerly known as Afan Argoed, which is a predominantly forest for walking and recreation (in the last few years this forest has become a keen favourite for mountain biking) there is much to be explored.
