Although North Wales has long been a popular destination for holidaymakers of all tastes and budgets, it is perhaps particularly suited to those who enjoy glamping breaks. Visit the region for this kind of getaway and you can connect with nature without giving up too many, if any, of your creature comforts.
Choosing to come to this part of Wales on a boutique camping break means you can pick from a range of accommodation and you can get something that suits your requirements perfectly, whether you fancy staying in a small rural cottage or a log cabin.
If it's the latter you're interested in, booking a stay at Llys Hafod is bound to be an appealing prospect. Located just on the outskirts of Brynsiencyn, a pretty village in Anglesey, this gorgeous property is constructed from slow-grown Baltic pine trees, making it the ideal place in which to embrace nature.
Set within its own private woodland, this two-storey home has all the facilities you require to have a relaxing break, including a fully-appointed kitchen. While this includes basic cooking appliances like a kettle and oven, you will also have enviable extras such as a filter coffee machine so you can start each morning with a freshly-brewed hot drink and enjoy the splendid natural scenery around you. With two spacious bedrooms and a luxury bathroom completing the property, you'll have plenty of space and privacy to relax.
Although you may be easily tempted to do little more on your glamping break than relax in the confines of your luxury accommodation, it is worth exploring a little of the surrounding region. Just a short distance from Llys Hafod is the Anglesey Sea Zoo, a fantastic family-friendly attraction that is home to some 150 different aquatic species, including seahorses and dolphins. Alternatively, you can travel a few miles along the Menai Straits to visit Aberffraw Beach, an expansive - yet quiet - stretch of golden sand that is perfect for sunbathing on.
Seeking out glamping accommodation in the Clwydian Hills will also make for a fabulously chic break. As one of the four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Wales, coming to the region - which is situated in the north-east - should put you in the perfect place to be at one of nature.
Indeed, booking a getaway in a remote hut puts you in the heart of the countryside, where you'll be surrounded by beautiful trees and plants. Of course, you will also have the opportunity to spot an array of woodland creatures, including foxes and badgers.
Don't despair if you'd rather not be completely shut off from society though, as you can get accommodation that has satellite TV and Wi-Fi, as well as a modern kitchen and bathroom.
By staying in the Clwydian Hills, you can explore the amazing Loggerheads Country Park. Here, you'll discover a selection of hiking trails and find out more about the region's mining heritage. If you're hoping do something a little more enthralling on a chic glamping break, however, you can go abseiling in Devil's Gorge.
Water sport lovers, meanwhile, ought to head to Rhos-on-Sea for the day. Situated between Colwyn Bay and Llandudno, this is a popular spot for surfers and can produce some huge swells.
Alternatively, you can visit the St Mary's Church in Mold, which dates back to the 14th century, and wander around Iron Age forts before heading back to your luxurious glamping accommodation to relax.
