New caravan site proposed for Vale of Glamorgan

Posted by Linda Davidson

Caravan water heater owners planning a trip to the Vale of Glamorgan may be interested to hear that a new site has been proposed for land near Dyffryn House and Garden.

Barry councillor Rob Curtis suggested to the South Wales Echo that a caravan site next to the historic house and gardens would boost tourist numbers in the area.

The council recently spent millions of pounds renovating and restoring the house and grounds of the remote tourist attraction.

It is the isolated nature of the attraction which has led to Councillor Curtis' suggestion to build a caravan site in the area.

He told the newspaper: "Creating a certified caravan site on land adjacent but completely hidden from the gardens would increase visitor numbers to the garden and cafe and in the process become beneficial to the tourist economy in the Vale of Glamorgan."

Caravan water heater owners planning a trip to Wales may wish to check out Bodysgallen Hall, which provides views over Snowdonia and has been described as one of the most romantic places in the UK, by tourist board VisitBritain.
