Welcome to the Gwent District Association or DA, by comparison to other DA’s within the Cambrian and Wyvern Region of the Camping and Caravanning Club, Gwent DA is quite small. The DA, which was formed in 1978, nestles just inside the Welsh border and has some of the most beautiful countryside in the whole of Wales.

Interested in history?
There are castles at Newport, Abergavenny, Monmouth, Caldicot, Raglan and Skenfrith.  An abbey at Tintern,  plus cathedrals in Newport and Usk. Also close by are the attractions of Big Pit at Blaenavon and the Welsh Folk Museum at St Fagan’s, in Cardiff.

More of an activity enthusiast?
The Wye Valley has some wonderful walks, Offa’s Dyke is on our doorstep, there are mountains to climb around Abergavenny plus numerous water activities on the River Wye from sailing, canoeing to river cruising. The Brecon Beacons national park also spills over into our area.

Come and join us at one of our meets, whether a long weekend rally or just for a weekend or at our three week Holiday meet (THS), you are assured of a warm welcome.  We look forward to welcoming new and old friends again.

Further information about Gwent DA or any of our meets, contact our Secretary Jean or Sites organiser Sue.
