Think eighteenth century manor house and the words ‘value for money’ may not be the first to spring to mind. But, think again Pitchuppers, for Grondre Holiday Park has cleverly combined the two - huzzah!
Set in the grounds of an old manor house, Grondre has all the charm of old Wales matched with modern, family-friendly facilities and entertainment. Are you a sucker for stunning architecture? If so, the stone-walled, beam-ladened amusement hall on site, complete with pool table and arcade games, will have you feeling like a real winner. The fully-heated outdoor pool (open from Whitsun until 31 August - weather permitting) is also another perk included in the price of your stay that we’re sure the kids will happily take advantage of.
Amenities at Grondre include modern loo and shower blocks, wifi access, a free ice-pack freezing service and a laundrette with drying facilities - so damp camping holidays really are a thing of the past. Bingo, quiz nights and other evening entertainment are all run in The Stable Inn - the holiday park’s family pub, which has plenty of draughts on tap and proper Welsh grub to eat in or take away. Rarebit, anyone?
Speaking of food, stroll into Grondre’s nearest village of Clynderwen for a slice of Bara Brith at Caffe Beca. And if the activities on site aren’t quite enough, Grondre’s Pembrokeshire-Carmarthenshire location not only gives you a base to explore the best mountain, lake and beach views in the country, but also offers easy-peasy access to many of the area’s most popular attractions including Oakwood and Folly Farm adventure parks. You just need to decide where to start...
The little yet lively Welsh-speaking town of Narbeth is just three miles south of Grondre. Pay it a visit to take in the rows of pretty cottages and shops, boutiques and The Creative Café - where kids are sure to enjoy getting messy as they decorate their own pottery and admire their efforts afterward over a cupcake.
If the pool at Grondre isn’t sufficient for your water baby, head for Blue Lagoon Waterpark, which is just over a ten-minute drive south west. Open all year round, big kids can have an aqua adventure as they brave the flumes, battle the wild waves, and give it their best on the inflatable ‘Eliminator’ (available at limited times), while little ones can explore Nippers Cove…you can relax in the in- and outdoor hot tubs too. If you’ve still got excitable youngsters with energy to burn, Oakwood Theme Park at Canaston Bridge is just a mile or so further south from Blue Lagoon. Take the troops here for rollercoasters, gold panning, 3D experiences, mini golf and a trip to Neverland...boredom simply will not be an option.
If it’s the seaside that’s calling, Saundersfoot is on the coast 11 miles southward (just over half an hour in the car), while the beach at Amroth is slightly closer (around nine miles, 20 minutes) and the popular resort of Tenby is half an hour’s drive in the same direction. Sample some of Pembrokeshire’s finest local produce at Saundersfoot’s gourmet restaurants, or for simpler pleasures, an ice cream on the beach will probably suffice. The half a mile expanse of flat sandy beach at Amroth is perfect for beach games (just check the tide times before travelling), while rockpoolers can head to the western end armed with their net and eagle eye to spy some natural goodies. Tenby, with its Norman heritage to impress history buffs, fantastic beaches for sun worshippers, boat trips to Caldey Island for the explorers, shops for the moochers, and a whole load of cafés, pubs and restaurants for those ruled by their stomach *guilty*, will entertain everyone.
Head north for about 40 minutes (18 miles) for a day trip cycling, walking and picnicking at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park too. Don’t worry, we'll let you off if you don’t manage to cover all of the 950km of public footpaths and bridleways around the park...it's certainly worth exploring what you can though!
