We’re seeing a steady increase of sunny days here in the UK, which can only mean two things – summer and the start of the holiday season. Already, people are starting to visit the beautiful area of North Wales in droves, and it’s plain to see that the Easter season will be a very busy one indeed. Numerous places and destinations, from self catering in Aberdovey to caravan parks to hotels, all are reporting an upturn in bookings for the holiday season in 2019.
If you’re thinking of staying a little closer to home on your holidays this year, holidays and self-catering in Aberdovey offers the perfect base for an adventurous holiday. Take Aberdovey Hillside Village, for instance. You don’t have to content yourself sitting in a cold caravan or a claustrophobic hotel room during your stay, you can enjoy your stay in a house or an apartment, set in a beautiful hillside village which has absolutely everything you need for an excellent stay.
North Wales is a popular tourist destination as there’s something for everyone, whether its tranquillity, history or adventure. There’s so much to see and do, and we’re quite certain that the region is worth repeat visit after repeat visit. It’s absolutely impossible for it to get boring.
The Aberdovey area is right next to the Snowdonia National Park. This area is renowned for its spectacular views, as well as being home to the tallest mountain in Wales. Aberdovey in itself offers championship golf facilities as well as surfing facilities, and promises a varied and interesting holiday for all ages.
It’s only a hop, skip and a jump away from the Snowdonia region as well. Every year, thousands of locals and visitors ascend Snowdon so that they can be rewarded with the fantastic views from its summit. There are a variety of routes to the top, and it takes on average around 4-6 hours to complete.
For those who are unable to walk to the summit, or perhaps those who just don’t like the thought of trekking all the way up a mountain, the Snowdon Mountain Railway offers a scenic and relaxing alternative. During the summer months, the main track up to the peak of Snowdon is incredibly busy, but there are plenty of other mountains in the range which offer a much quieter trek (but don’t expect to find a train service to these ones…).
There’s also the more historical side of North Wales as well. is full of history, and you don’t have to travel far to see evidence of this. The town of Caernarfon is encapsulated by medieval town walls, and the 13th century castle within can still be visited today. Again, Caernarfon is only a brief car journey away from Aberdovey. Within Caernarfon you’ll also find the harbour, which offers gorgeous views over to the Isle of Anglesey across the Menai Strait.
Holidaying in North Wales doesn’t mean either dated, Victorian seaside hotels or caravan parks where you’re crammed together like battery hens. There are plenty of options such as the beautiful Aberdovey Hillside Village where you really can enjoy all of the comforts of home, away from home, for very many years to come.
