My Home for some years

I spent a number of years in porthcawl in nottage, having the opportunity to live close to natural countryside, beaches and the fun fair and trecco bay holiday park on my doorstep.
Not alot for younger elements now days in my opinion, however, the amusements of the pavillion, icecream, fair and trecco are still an interest.

Living in trecco bay

I spent some time in trecco bay in a rented caravan and found it to be an invaluable experience and alot of fun, alot of private rented caravans are still available aswell as ones managed by the parkdean holidays booking at reception.
Treccco Bay is the principal caravan park owned by Parkdean holidays in Porthcawl, it is in the suburb of Newton, if walking from Coney Beach, past the fairground, hightide, sandy beach and trecco bay is in front.

my hometown

    Looks pretty cool. I grew up in a beach town very similar in New Jersey and went to uni in Brighton in my younger days. Cheers.
