UK Holiday Brand Set to Open its First Holiday Resort in Wales


A new lodge resort set to open in Monmouthshire this Autumn has been unveiled as the latest location for back-to-nature holiday brand Landal GreenParks.

Situated on the English/Welsh border, Landal Vale of Usk will become the company’s tenth UK location and the first holiday resort for the brand in Wales.

Plans for the greenfield development includes a golf course, spa and wellness facilities, a conference centre, gym and leisure facilities and variety of luxury accommodation from design-led lodges to treehouses.

Owner, Deri Llewelyn-Davies says the decision to join the Landal family was an easy one given its reputation for nature-inspired breaks.

He said:

“We are passionate about providing a great place to stay while reconnecting with the natural world. The Landal brand is synonymous with both these things and so it made absolute sense to partner with them. The development is coming along well and not only will we be welcoming new guests soon, we are also showcasing our area and creating jobs within the community. We can’t wait to welcome our first guests.”

Landal GreenParks UK launched their Green Pledge in 2019 aiming to be carbon neutral by 2030 alongside committing to a number of environmental initiatives across their parks. At Landal Vale of Usk, the accommodation will be eco-friendly and designed to protect the landscape and reduce eco-logical impact, whilst offering stunning views of the outdoors.

Robbie Davies, UK Development Director at Landal GreenParks – the parent of Landal GreenParks UK, said:

“A Landal break is all about experiencing the natural local environment, embracing the great outdoors and making the most of the Great British Staycation. We are proud to be working with Landal Vale of Usk to create the next generation of holiday resorts and providing guests with state-of-the-art luxury accommodation which aligns with our green credentials.”

Known as the gateway to Wales, Landal Vale of Usk is perfectly positioned for guests to enjoy the great outdoors and visit the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Forest of Dean.

Landal Vale of Usk is the second park to join the Landal portfolio this year. Other locations include Landal Rockingham Forest, in Cambridgeshire, Landal Woodland Lakes Lodges, in Yorkshire, Landal Darwin Forest and Landal Sandybrook, both situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Landal Kielder Waterside, set deep within Northumberland’s Kielder Water & Forest Park, Landal Gwel an Mor on the Cornish coast, Landal Barton Pines of the Devon coastline, Landal Kenwick Woods, in Lincolnshire and Landal Piperdam – the only resort in Scotland.
