With the worst of the weather out the way, it’s the perfect time to plan a reviving spring getaway in Wales. The rolling green hills, sandy beaches and lush forests make our beautiful nation ideal for a holiday at any time of the year – but Wales is particularly magical during the spring months.
If you’re planning a Welsh getaway of your own in the next few weeks, check out the following list for some accommodation inspiration.
The pretty riverside village of Betws-y-Coed can be found in Snowdonia, bordered by the Gwydir Forest Park. There are plenty of places to stay here, but a particular highlight is Summer Hill, a boutique hotel housed in a late Victorian country house. The traditional bedrooms have been given a modern twist and each boasts an ensuite bathroom and gorgeous views.
Cwmllechwedd Fawr is all about simple charm. Tucked away in the hills of central Wales, this secluded farmhouse offers quiet, luxurious accommodation with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Choose between three ensuite rooms in the main bed & breakfast, or a cosy self-catering cottage.
Tŷ Bae is a bed & breakfast situated on the western coast of Anglesey, on the scenic Trearddur Bay. With just three rooms – each of which boasts a king-size bed, rain shower and balcony – this establishment promises a quiet, intimate stay with some stunning views. And with a beach just on your doorstep, you’re in the perfect location for water sports, hiking and – given the right weather – a spot of swimming.
Head to the picturesque town of Fishguard in Pembrokeshire and you can enjoy a stay at the 4-star Manor Town House. A boutique B&B with some excellent sea views, this establishment promises an ensuite bathroom, Egyptian cotton sheets, a flat screen television, and a locally sourced breakfast.
Another fantastic Pembrokeshire establishment can be found in Milford Haven. St Katherine’s House has just two rooms – both of which have been carefully decorated with a blend of traditional and modern features. There’s plenty to explore in the surrounding area, and with packed lunches available from the B&B you’ll be well fed.
Not all spring getaways in Wales have to be seaside or rural. If you’re seeking a more vibrant location, head to Cardiff and spend a few nights at the Lincoln House Hotel. Situated next to the parkland along the River Taff, this bed & breakfast is close to a number of restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. For the ultimate luxury break, book the penthouse and make use of the lounge and kitchen.
This spa hotel and popular wedding venue is situated just outside Denbigh in northern Wales. Book a spring getaway here, and you can enjoy a number of luxury spa treatments centring on the skincare brand Thalgo. The hotel has a restaurant, which is housed in the old stable blocks, and the quirky accommodation comes in the form of rustic Shepherds’ Huts and the cosy Dovecot cottage.
