Seaside and coastal holidays

Vale Holiday Parks have a selection of lovely parks by the sea in mid-Wales, West Wales and Cornwall. Perfect for families and friends who want a seaside getaway. 

We have three holiday parks right on the coast:

  • Clarach Bay is a bustling park complete with a clubhouse with regular entertainment, seafront funfair and swimming pool. It is across the road from Clarach Bay beach.
  • Gilfach is a quieter countryside retreat with calming uninterrupted coastal views, its own small beach and direct access to the Wales Coast Path.
  • Porthkerry on the South Wales coast has beautiful views over the sea. This friendly holiday park has a clubhouse serving food and drink!  

Our other holiday parks are only a few miles from the beach and by classic coastal resorts including Perranporth, Cornwall; Fishguard, Pembrokeshire; and New Quay, Wales. So you can wake up to lovely sea views, explore these friendly seaside towns and visit their famous beaches.

Ice creams on the prom, beach days in the sun and coastal walking with stunning views - you can’t beat a traditional British seaside holiday!
