Looking for a family holiday at one of the biggest parks on the mid-west Wales coast – with its own beach overlooking Cardigan Bay, oodles of entertainment options and chic caravans fitted out with all mod cons? Kids and big kids alike will be clamouring for a stay at the family-run Clarach Bay Holiday Village, with everything from fish and chips to fruit machines all to hand and with lashings of local attractions within easy reach.
The entertainment and attractions on offer at this family-orientated site include Barry, Sammy and Dewi for the littlies to make friends with, a seafront amusement area with arcade, shop, restaurant and mini fun fair, and the three-room Showboat Club with comedy, cabaret and theatrical shows to pick from.
For those of a more strenuous bent, there’s an outdoor sports court and an indoor and outdoor pool to work up a sweat at before having a virtuous snack at the ice cream and burger bar, or take a short stroll off site to Clarach’s beach for a wander to spot the local dolphins. The town of Aberystwyth is five minutes away, with a bus stop just outside the park.

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.

As well as Clarach South, beach fiends can find Aberystwyth North and Aberystwyth South beaches within a couple of miles. The north beach has donkey rides and children’s entertainment in summer, and Aberystwyth South has The Harbour Trap, popular with (experienced) surfers and Constitution Hill: climb to the café and camera obscura at the top if you’re feeling energetic, or take the Cliff Railway during the summer months for sweeping views over the bay.
Aberystwyth itself is a top spot for a day trip: as well as the seafront entertainment there’s the National Library of Wales to browse around, the Aberystwyth Arts Centre for theatre and live music, exhibitions and shows at the Ceredigion Museum, and access to a wealth of local walks and cycle routes including the Parc Penglais Nature Reserve and the Ystwyth Trail cycle path; the nearby Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian Forest Centre is a huge woodland site with activities, a shop and an information centre.
There’s loads to keep the littlies amused too: workshops and craft goodies at the Corris Craft Centre near Machynlleth, going underground at the abandoned slate mines with the Corris Mine Explorers, or sailing through the subterranean waterfall at King Arthur’s Labyrinth.
