Welsh assembly tourism minister Rhodri Glyn Thomas is promoting caravanning in his country by taking a caravan tour around west Wales this summer, according to News Wales.
Already a caravan fan, Mr Glyn hopes to display the camping delights of Wales when he pitches his caravan in the Gower in Swansea then drives west to Pembrokeshire.
Mr Thomas said: “I’ve always taken at least one holiday in Wales every year, it gives me a chance to unwind without the stress of having to travel and fly to far flung destinations.
“The caravan also gives you the freedom to do as you please, you always feel that you’re outdoors, enjoying what the countryside has to offer.”
He added that the Welsh countryside was perfect for caravanners who wanted to make the most of coastal paths for walking and cycling.
“Wales is full of perfect places to explore by bike and I look forward to cycling in the Pembrey Country Park and along the coastline,” he explained.
“We may not have had the best of summers, but there’s always something to do in Wales whatever the weather. The rain can also be a perfect excuse to relax or while away an afternoon at some of the fantastic places to eat that Wales has to offer, sampling local produce always adds to the holiday experience.”
While the Welsh coast has much to offer, it also holds many pitfalls, which is why sensible caravanners always secure caravan insurance as a priority. If your caravan gets scratched on a rocky outcrop or stuck in the sand, your caravan may require emergency removal or repairs. Cover4Caravans’ touring caravan insurance offers all these benefits.
