We have recently stayed with Away Resorts at there Barmouth Bay Holiday Park. It is located in Snowdonia National Park in Wales. I managed to get a great deal so booked a couple of nights there. I’ll admit that I was concerned that the accommodation might be very basic for the price but luckily I couldn’t have been more wrong!
We drove through miles of stunning countryside passing through the gorgeous seaside town of Barmouth, before reaching Barmouth Bay holiday park. It’s only about a five minute drive back into Barmouth. Conveniently Talybont train station is on the same road as the holiday park so only a two minute walk and you can catch a train to Barmouth. When we arrived we were given a train timetable and details of a local taxi company. The staff were lovely and gave us information on local activities and the best place for dinner.
I booked a comfort caravan and it was perfect for us. It was spacious, extremely clean and came with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The only item that isn’t included with this option is towels but all bedding was provided. The kids had a separate bedroom and we had an en-suite toilet with our room. We were able to park directly outside our caravan and were only a minutes walk from the beach!
The boys were very happy to find a playstation 2 with a selection of games! There was also a good selection of films which we enjoyed.
The park has a really nice indoor pool with a shallow corner for little kids. The pool was lovely and warm and again only a short walk from our accommodation.
The kids made good use of the play area and next to that is a great enclosed football/basketball area.
Next to the holiday park is an amusement arcade, mini supermarket, fish and chip shop, cabaret bar and American diner! Slightly further down the road is Nineteen.57, a restaurant and bar with a large play area outside.
There is also an Italian restaurant and pub within walking distance of the holiday park but we didn’t have time to visit these on this occasion.
My favourite part of Barmouth Holiday park was being right on the most gorgeous beach! There are three separate access points onto the beach from the holiday park and there are some lovely walks along the coast. It is also a great place for dogs.
There is so much for families to do nearby. Click here to find out what activities are available.
I highly recommend staying with Away Resort, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the facilities were great!
