Weekend breaks in Wales

Discover the beauty of Wales during a short break

A weekend spent exploring Wales

Wales is a country of myths and legends, where the castles, rivers and mountains have stories to tell. Outdoor adventures, wild beauty and simple relaxation are all part of the mix on a weekend break in Wales.

Enjoy a wonderful weekend break in wales' enchanting forests

What’s your idea of freedom? Open spaces, magical landscapes and a pair of walking boots? Castles and coastline, history and legend? Or is it peace and solitude with your loved ones, in a hot tub beneath the trees?

Whatever you seek, your freedom awaits on a weekend break in Wales. Stay in a woodland cabin at Beddgelert, in the heart of Snowdonia, where the mountains are your backdrop and the tumbling brook is your background music.

In a long weekend in Wales, there’s time and space for a complete break. You can tackle mountains and lakes, learn about Welsh wildlife with your Forest Ranger, and come back to your cabin for hot tub happiness, feeling relaxed and renewed.

As the natural beauty of Wales surrounds you in your woodland cabin, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in another world. Whether it’s to reconnect with friends and family or a romantic getaway for two, a weekend in Wales is a truly restorative break.

Our Welsh location at Beddgelert in Snowdonia is just one of our 10 forest locations in beautiful and undiscovered UK destinations, giving you lots of options for an easy weekend away, where you can enjoy the magic of the forest and benefit from a long-lasting feeling of wellbeing.

A weekend exploring Wales

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.

  • Adventures for thrill-seekers!

    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.
