10 Best Campsites in Wales


Perfectly preserved 700-year-old castles, sandy coves lapped by deep blue waters, and acre after acre of bright green hills – Wales lays claim to some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery and attractions. And camping is one of the best ways to explore its varied landscapes, giving you the chance to wake up to those gorgeous views without needing to move.

Many of our campsites in Wales are also destinations in their own right: pick from options overlooking the glittering coastlines of Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion or choose a park at the foot of trails up to Mount Snowdon's peak. 

Or perhaps a grand tour’s in order? If so, tick off all these campsites in Wales, from the Brecon Beacons in the south east to the Llŷn Peninsula in the north west. They all come highly recommended by previous Pitchup customers.
