4. Explore the local area

Both Wales and Cornwall boast stunning natural beauty and a wealth of cultural attractions. Venture out to discover hidden gems, such as secret coves, mediaeval castles, and charming villages. When staying at Liskey Hill, why not take a walk down to Perranporth where you can explore the Perranzabuloe Museum for a slice of local heritage or grab a cuppa in one of the many local cafes along the stunning St Agnes Heritage Coast.


5. Stay active

Our varied locations offer an array of opportunities for outdoor activities from scenic nature walks and cycle routes, at Gilfach Holiday Village you can access the Ceredigion section of the Wales Coastal Path with breathtaking views and stunning scenery to children’s play areas and seaside shenanigans - planning active fun to keep fit and healthy during your staycation is a great way to create lasting memories (and not to mention wear the kids out so you can have a quiet evening).


6. Connect with nature

Take some time to disconnect from technology and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Wales and Cornwall. Go for a nature walk and find the beauty in our native wildlife, spend a day at our stunning coastlines, or simply enjoy a picnic in a scenic spot.


7. Enjoy evening entertainment

Many Vale Holiday Parks offer a variety of evening entertainment options, such as live music, shows, and themed nights. Participating in these events is a great way to unwind after a long day down the beach or a hike across the coastal cliffs.

8. Embrace the weather

The UK weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for any eventuality. Pack clothing for both sunny and rainy days, and remember that even a rainy day can be an opportunity for fun and adventure - you could even bring some card and board games for rainy day activities the whole family can enjoy.


9. Capture the memories

Remember to take plenty of pictures throughout your stay - capturing the beautiful scenery, family moments and once in a lifetime experiences you encounter to ensure your memories last a lifetime and remember - if you pop them on socials, give us a tag we love to see how much our guests enjoyed their stays with us.


10. Relax and unwind

Above all, your holiday should be a time to relax and unwind. Take some time for yourself to enjoy a good book, splurge for a hot-tub accommodation, or simply savour a quiet moment amidst the natural beauty of Wales and Cornwall.
