MTB Routes in North Wales

Image
North Wales is well known as a mountain biker’s paradise, and there are a series of routes which are perfect for bikers of all skill levels. From natural routes to man (and woman!) made masterpieces, North Wales offers so much for mountain bikers, it receives attention from around the world.
The Marin Trail (or as it’s called now, the Gwydir Mawr) is a 25km long trail throughout the scenic (and historic) Gwydir Forest right next to the pretty town of Llanrwst, and is a well respected trail which is popular with all manner of mountain bikers. With a lot of variety in it, the trail is well maintained and boasts superb quality throughout.

Enjoy the Festive Season With an Excellent Break

Image
It’s a hard thing when the kids leave home and the nest feels empty. Events such as Christmas which normally brought so much stress, running around (in some cases, full blown panic) but happiness can feel deflated and empty when your children aren’t around to spend them with you – and small Christmases can feel quite the muted affair – sucking the magic out of the season. There are a number of ways that you can get the cheer back into the season, as well as a number of hotels in Llandudno which can offset the perfect Christmas for you, even when the kids have flown the nest.
Take St Tudno Hotel, for instance. This seafront hotel in Llandudno stays open all year and is pleasantly busy throughout the festive season, due to the fact they offer full packaged Christmas breaks which will allow you to feel rested, rejuvenated, as well as pampered. St Tudno Hotel in particular is special with the fact that it offers its very own concierge service, which allows you to be picked up from your fro…

Winter Breaks in Llandudno

Image
Llandudno in North Wales is a very special place. Some people say that Llandudno even possesses a magic, magic which was made from recollections of holidays within the area. Whether you’ve been to Llandudno in a bygone age or even just last year, the reports of the town being magical are most certainly true. This little seaside resort is one in a million- a place which bucks the trend of the typical British seaside town. Llandudno is one of the very rare ones that stays open all year around, almost transforming in the space of just a few months. But how, exactly? The great British seaside holiday is something in decline, if the news is to be believed. When you think of a British tourist destination, you can’t help but think of how it fares in the winter, abandoned, grey, and so desolate. The ending of it is symptomatic of the times- the fact that the advent of air travel has meant that cheap, European holidays are a hop, skip and a jump away, and that the British economy simply cannot …

Image
Getting a great deal on a seafront hotel in Llandudno doesn’t mean that you have to put up with inferior accommodation for the sake of saving money. The saying “You get what you pay for” has been true to very many things throughout life, but it doesn’t have to apply to everything. Seafront hotels in Llandudno for instance.
A few tips and tricks can ensure that you can get a lovely hotel in Llandudno with high-quality interiors, excellent proximity to the seaside, fantastic staff and an excellent stay without breaking the bank – leaving you more money for attractions and entertainment on your holiday, of course.

Image
Those of you who are lucky enough to be taking your well deserved holiday at a caravan park in Mid Wales this year, you may find yourself looking for an interesting activity to take part in and enjoy. Look no further than the Welshpool Canal Walk with Ty Gobaith (Happy House) on Sunday the 24th of September, a wonderful charity event helping to support children and their families across the whole of Wales.

High Quality Stays in the Heart of Snowdonia

Image
Very many of us automatically think of going abroad when we consider the thought of going on holiday. With that comes airport delays, pat downs and cramped planes – as well as your money simply going not as far as it used to when it comes to holiday spends. The weak pound compared to the Euro has meant that very many of us are having to cut back on your holidays because we simply can’t buy as much as we used to.
However, going abroad isn’t all there is to enjoying a great holiday.
The Great British Holiday has stepped up its game considerably in recent years, and staying in the UK can actually give you a relaxing, peaceful holiday which can make you feel like you’ve actually recharged your batteries. There are a number of excellent hotels in the UK which can provide all of the service you would expect from a holiday, and they go above and beyond to ensure that you’ll have a marvellous time.
The rising cost of going abroad isn’t going to go down any time soon, and while the UK cannot prom…
