The wonder of Wales is that it packs so much into such a small space. In a single weekend, you can climb mountains, play on the beach, explore hidden valleys and visit vibrant towns and cities. As you head west into the sunset at the end of your working week, the mountains put a protective barrier between you and the busy world you are leaving behind, for a few blissful days.
A weekend in Wales promises action and outdoor fun, from walking, cycling and climbing mountains, to water sports, horse riding and caving. And, if you are a thrill-seeker, brace yourself for zipwires, underground trampolining and cavern adventures.
Land of Myths and Legend
Welsh myths and heritage are entwined within the landscape here. Spend a morning climbing Dinas Emrys, the mountain beneath which Merlin is said to have witnessed the great battle between the Red and the White Dragons. Visit Caernarfon for the afternoon, where the magnificent waterfront castle stands guard. This still leaves plenty of time in a long weekend to explore the Blue Flag beaches around Porthmadog and take a steam train up into the old mining hills of Blaenau Ffestiniog – your nearest station is steps from your cabin at Beddgelert.
Refresh and Relax
After your days of high adrenaline activity, your cabin is a haven of peace and tranquility. Make your weekend easy, and eat in with a cabin delivery or ask the team for the best local eateries. When the sun has set, unwind in your hot tub and make the most of Snowdonia’s International Dark Sky status to gaze at the stars above you.
