With the onset of winter just around the corner, the idea of cosying up on an autumnal evening in your holiday home sounds very inviting. If you are lucky enough to own a holiday lodge on one of the 12 month Caravan Parks in North Wales, or looking to buy one, there are many wonderful events in North Wales within easy travelling distance of Sirior Bach Caravan Park. November is the time of bonfires, fireworks, and making plans for the Christmas season.

The location of Sirior Bach Caravan Park is ideal for taking part in many of the suggested events throughout November. Should you wish for a more sedate, relaxing break in your holiday home here or in any of the other country parks in Wales, you are never far from stunning national parkland or beaches for a pleasant walk.
After your eventful day, go back to your Static Caravan or Holiday Lodge to relax after a busy day out and put your feet up with a steaming hot drink or a glass of wine.
Sirior Bach is one of the few 12-month caravan parks in North Wales for holiday lodge owners only so if you are thinking about buying one of our luxurious lodges, November or December is a great time to come and view.
