A Simple Guide to Local Attractions - Allens Caravans
Allens Caravans

The beauty of holidaying on one of our caravan sites is that they are located close to many local attractions that attract thousands of visitors every year. 

Having the luxury of time relaxing in one of our caravan parks in the Cotswolds, or in Worcestershire, for example, you can access local attractions at times convenient to you, and often when they are less busy. We’ve highlighted a few areas of particular interest that are in close proximity to some of the UK’s most beautiful local attractions and their neighbouring Allens caravans sites, and we look forward to welcoming you in the not-too-distant future.

Hiker Snowdonia

Caravan Sites North West Wales

The wilds of the Irish Sea have long been a pull for visitors to the north west Welsh coast. The rugged coastline is a favourite for hikers who like to mix up the openness of the seascape with the heights of the Snowdonia national park mountain range.

Snowdonia is the famous mountainous area of Wales covering an area of 823 square miles and offers a myriad of activities and places to explore, which will have you coming back year after year, and still, be exploring new areas and activities.Whether you feel energetic enough to walk the many challenging mountain, woodland, and lakeside trails, jump on two wheels and cover miles of stunning countryside, or relax on the many Snowdonia beaches, turning every corner will throw up breath-taking view after breath-taking view.

Mix up the natural beauty of Snowdonia with its fascinating history. For example, Aberystwyth Castle was built as a result of the first Welsh War in the late 13th century. The building has a chequered history, changing hands several times over the centuries. Today Aberystwyth Castle Grounds are a focus of the local town’s annual flower planting schemes, attracting visitors from far and wide. If you are feeling the pull of Cardigan Bay, Snowdonia and the charms of Aberystwyth, the following Allens caravan sites in north west Wales will ensure your stay is comfortable

The Cotswolds - A Real Jewel of England

The Cotswolds is regarded as one of the most beautiful areas of England, with an endless array of local attractions to explore, from quaint English villages filled to the brim with cute cottages like Broadstairs and Castle Combe to more quirky venues such as the Cotswold Motoring Museum, and havens for horticulturists such as Hidcote Manor Garden and, more regally, Highgrove Gardens.

Highgrove is the private residence of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The King has long been an advocate of nurturing the environment and is a genuine expert in organic horticulture. Between April and October, the gardens are open to the public, who can explore a series of interlinked gardens that the King has worked on and restored over a period of 40 years, focusing on sustainability. On the Highgrove website, King Charles himself is quoted as follows:

“One of my great joys is to see the pleasure that the garden can bring to many visitors and that everybody seems to find part of it that is special to them.”

Allens has one of its most popular Cotswold caravan sites located close to the village of Broadway - Leedons Holiday Park. Come and enjoy our extensive onsite amenities, including an indoor pool complex and tennis courts. And your dog’s welcome too!

Discovering Worcestershire

Worcestershire is a real hidden gem when it comes to local attractions. Perhaps best known for the Malvern Hills, which is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. On a clear day, you can look out over the Cotswolds towards the Black Mountains in Wales from this ancient hill area.

A little-known fact about the region is that it is where three rivers meet - the Rivers Severn, Avon, and Teme, so if you are keen on stepping off dry land and exploring the countryside from the gentle putt-putt of a canal boat, then you will definitely want to seek out a Malvern Hills caravan site.

Bredon Hill

Bredon Hill is a stunning stretch of countryside that extends over eight parishes and is so beautiful that we have named one of our caravan parks in Worcestershire after it - Bredon View. The challenging but invigorating 1000-foot climb to the summit will take you to an 18th-century stone folly with some breath-taking views.

For a more cultural trip on a rainy day, Hanbury Hall, Worcester Cathedral, Worcester Museum and Great Malvern are all fascinating destinations. When your legs are aching and your want to continue exploring, but preferably with your feet up somewhere, book yourself onto the Severn Valley Railway, a heritage 16 mile long stretch of rail that runs from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster, stopping at eight stations along the way. If Worcestershire is an area you are keen to explore in more detail, then we’d love to welcome you to one of our local caravan sites, Bredon View or The Springs.
