Vale Holiday Parks in West Wales

Many choose Ceredigion, West Wales as their favourite place to escape the busy stress of modern-day life. It’s a peaceful holiday destination, not overrun by tourists, but with plenty to do for all the family! Take a day at the beach and maybe you’ll spot the dolphins, porpoise and seals which play in the Irish Sea.


Our three Vale Holiday Parks are located to the south of Ceredigion. They’re all less than three miles to the gorgeous stretch of coast known as Cardigan Bay. Gilfach is the closest to the water, located right on the cliffs with uninterrupted views of the Irish sea. Five minutes’ inland are Ocean Heights and The Village which are a stone’s throw apart but offer completely different types of holiday. Want fun-filled activities and entertainment? Ocean Heights has so much to do! Fancy a more relaxing holiday? You’ll love the peace of The Village.


Our holiday parks are ideal bases to explore this region - they are close enough to the A487 to easily tour the best of the West Wales coast but far enough away to avoid the noise. If you prefer to stay close to site, you’ll love nearby New Quay - the seaside town the three parks are dotted around.


Known for its traditional pubs, quaint restaurants and the freshest fish and chips, you definitely won’t struggle to find something to eat the whole family will enjoy in New Quay. It is also a great place for fishing, sailing and water sports lovers, thanks to the nearby rugged coastline and golden beaches. You’ll love exploring the town, with its relaxed atmosphere, fun stuff to do in such a picturesque setting, going right down to the blue waters of Cardigan Bay.
