Big mountains, big beach, big sand dunes, big pool, and big attractions like Snowdonia and Betws-y-Coed nearby - it all adds up to one big helping of family fun at the Greenacres Holiday Park, on the sheltered Llyn Peninsula in North Wales.
You can roll out of bed, grab your bucket and spade, and clamber over the dunes straight onto your own patch of Black Rock Sands, a wide golden beach with rock pools and caves to explore at low tide. Or head through the green and pleasant grounds into the nature reserve, where you might spot some of the local wildlife (if you can take your eyes off the breathtaking backdrop of mountains...).
The kids will have a blast in the outdoor SplashZone, while you relax and watch (out of range of the water cannons!) from the sunny terrace of the Mash and Barrel lounge bar and café. The Mash and Barrel serves a family-friendly range of food and drink throughout the day and evening; there’s also a Burger King on site, plus bumper barbies in the summer.
Courtesy of the fab free kids’ clubs, your youngsters could come away with a whole range of new talents, from circus skills to crafting, or bug hunting to baking. Greenacres also offers a huge variety of sports, including archery, pitch and putt, football, cycling, adventure golf, fencing, beach volleyball and much more. There’s a small extra charge for certain activities: buy an Activity Pass before you arrive for savings on the regular “pay as you go” rates.
Last but not least: don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes. There’s a non-stop programme of evening entertainment in the Showbar, with eclectic acts including magic shows, circus performances, tribute bands and cabaret.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

On Porthmadog High Street, take the turning by The Factory Shop, signposted Morfa Bychan/Black Rock Sands. Go past Garreg Wen on your left and Greenacres is 0.5 miles further down, on your left.
Guests can stroll straight from Greenacres Holiday Park onto the picturesque Llyn Peninsula coastal path, which travels 95 miles through diverse terrain including mud flats, hidden coves and craggy cliffs. Naturally there is spectacular walking inland, too, thanks to the breathtakingly dramatic scenery of Snowdonia National Park: lofty peaks, plunging river gorges and verdant valleys, dotted with lovely waterfalls.
Train buffs (and Thomas the Tank Engine fans) are spoiled for choice when it comes to scenic heritage railways. The Ffestiniog Railway twists and turns its way for 13.5 miles through the mountains between Porthmadog harbour and Blaenau Ffestiniog, and the steam locomotives of the Welsh Highland Railway take a stunning 25-mile route from Caernarfon to Porthmadog, via the foothills of Snowdon and the beautiful Aberglaslyn Pass.
Finally, at Llanberis you can pick up the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which will magic you directly to the top of Wales’s highest mountain, via a couple of dazzling viaducts, a waterfall and an ancient forest.
Visitors to the Great Orme Copper Mines in Llandudno can walk through tunnels and caverns created by our prehistoric ancestors an astonishing 4,000 years ago (even more astoundingly, they mined with tools made only of bone and stone).
There’s plenty in this area for adventurous types: quad biking, wakeboarding and go karting at Glasfryn Adventure Park, 12 miles from Greenacres Holiday Park; and brave surfers and kayakers can stare into “Hell’s Mouth”, at the beach at Porth Neigwl, Llanengan, named for its fiercely wild waters.
Alternatively, at the indoor Sun Centre in Rhyl, there are all sorts of man-made watery thrills, from the rush and tumble of the Black Thunder chute, to tropical storms and mega waves in the indoor surfing pool, and plenty of slides for little ones too.
Other recommended places to visit include the walled fortress town of Conwy, whose medieval castle glowers majestically from its rock above the estuary; the ancient bridges and cascading waterways of the popular inland resort of Betws-y-Coed; classy Caernarfon, a lively market town dominated by the most famous castle in Wales; and the immaculate Italianate spendour of the seaside village of Portmeirion.
