The big outdoors and cosy hotels in North Wales

. .

For those seeking adventure, North Wales offers everything from the world’s longest zip wire allowing you to fly through the skies of Snowdonia, to the man-made lagoon in Conwy Valley featuring a wave machine and all the facilities you need to learn to surf. Outdoor pursuits including high ropes, racing circuits, rock climbing and abseiling, horse riding, quad biking, mountain biking and clay pigeon shooting are all available as ways of exploring the beautiful surroundings. Meanwhile, golf and fishing remain some of the most enjoyable activities - particularly if the weather is well suited to the occasion.

The beaches in North Wales really are a marvel. With 250 miles of coastline, they are available in abundance, framed by dramatic cliffs and with a remote feeling of seclusion and peace. Colwyn Bay beach’s claim to fame is that it has a longer coastline than Rio’s Copacabana beach, and the popular seaside resorts of Rhyl and Llandudno continue to please. Anglesey’s beaches are a particular delight, and here there is a wealth of history to add to their intrigue, with churches and lighthouses nearby to explore and learn about.

When it comes to hotels, there is a traditional rustic beauty to those available - Plas Bodegroes has the most spectacular gardens surrounding the postcard perfect house, while Trefeddian Hotel overlooking Cardigan Bay is a magical place for a family holiday with lots of space to run around and go wild, and the warmest of welcomes when you return after your adventure.
