Glamping in North Wales

Friday 03 June 2016 @ 00:00

‘Go slowly and go far’ – an enigmatic Welsh saying which resonates so well with this spectacular part of the world. If you go glamping in North Wales, you'll find yourself an incredible amount of places to visit and great places to stay.

Iron Age hill forts, seaside towns, awe-inspiring mountains, festivals, castles, theme parks … and that’s just scratching the surface!

So you’ll need somewhere amazing to stay so you can enjoy every moment of your holiday. Boutique B&Bs, quaint hotels, gorgeous cottages, glamping accommodation … the choice is as varied as the Welsh terrain.

For the feeling of sand between your toes, head to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Rhyl has four sandy beaches, while Prestatyn has three, so there’s plenty of space to build that sandcastle, try paddle boarding or just enjoy a relaxing rest in a stripy deck chair!

Snowdonia one of three Welsh National Parks features the lofty mountain of the same name, while its nearby peaks roll down to the sea giving way to a dramatic backdrop of sand and rocky slopes.

Of course there are scores of different destinations such as Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and many more. Or go to Visit Wales for a virtual taste of Northern Wales.

2016 is officially The Year of Adventure so whether you love to push the boundaries or take it a bit easier, a way to take part is visit the Wales Coast Path. A recent newcomer to the world of walking, the Wales Coast Path opened in May 2012, and follows most of the Welsh coastline from Chepstow in the south to Queensferry in the north.

The beauty of the coast path is that it can be as arduous or as relaxed as you wish, being split into very small, manageable chunks to covering some serious mileage.

You can also cycle or run sections of it and tick the bucket list of fabulous places to increase your heart rate.

Yet you still require somewhere fabulous to return to after your day of pioneering adventure, so why not try glamping in North Wales?

Clwydian Wigwams includes four glamping cabins at its quiet site in Denbighshire, suitable for guests whether they be sole travellers, families or even groups of friends meeting up for a reunion.  The Wigwam® site is great for young children as there is no traffic and the site is secure in its own plot close to a working farm. It has fabulous views of the Clwydian Range, which is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Nearby towns and places to visit from Clwydian Wigwams include Betws y Coed, Llandudno, and Llangollen with shopping facilities in the quaint town of Ruthin as well as a plethora of eateries to try.

Clwydian Wigwams are a short distance from Carrog Station, from where you can travel by rail to Llangollen then either go on a canal/narrow boat or walk along the canal to see Pontcycyllte Aqueduct, described as a stream in the sky – it’s also a World Heritage Site.

And if you can’t resist the pull of the mountains, then Snowdonia and Coast Wigwams is perfect for glamping in North Wales.
