Have a chic glamping holiday in North Wales

If you’re hoping to go glamping on your next UK holiday, I don’t think you’re going to struggle to find amazing destinations to choose from. Indeed, a wide range of glamping accommodation, be it off-grid cottages or yurts, is situated all over the country. Choose to go to North Wales, however, and I believe you’ll be in a prime spot to enjoy a fabulous break.

Of course, one of the main reasons why this kind of holiday is so popular among Britons is it enables you to stay in high-end properties in the heart of the countryside that are refreshingly different from your standard hotel. You definitely won’t have problems doing this should you go glamping in Wales, as you can stay in remote huts nestled in the Clwydian Hills that give you plenty of opportunity to connect with nature.

As this 160 sq km region is one of just four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in all of Wales, I’m fairly certain you will soon forget about the pressures of urban life once you’ve settled into your accommodation. With a diverse array of landscapes to capture your eye, including limestone rock outcrop and open expanses of heather woodland, you can easily feel at one with your natural surroundings.

Of course, it’s not just the range of terrain that makes Clwydian Hills a good place for nature lovers to visit, but also the woodland species that can be spotted from your window if you’re lucky, which include badgers and foxes, among others. To experience the area’s natural beauty in even closer detail, head to the nearby Loggerheads Country Park. This reserve contains an array of hiking trails and outdoor exhibits that offer a glimpse into the area’s mining past.

If you’d rather not be entirely cut off from modern society on a glamping break in the region, spend a day exploring Mold. This charming market town is home to enthralling Iron Age forts and the historic St Mary’s Church, elements of which date back to the 14th century.

While the Clwydian Hills is an amazing destination for a glamping break in North Wales, I think it’d be a mistake to believe it’s your only option. The Llys Hafod log cabin in Anglesey will also provide you with more than enough opportunity for you to connect with nature, particularly as it is situated within its own stretch of private woodland.

Here, you’ll have a modern kitchen that has everything from a filter coffee machine and a handblender to a slow cooker and dishwasher, allowing you to easily whip up fantastic meals before heading out to the balcony to eat. As well as this, you’ll have a stylish bathroom and two spacious bedrooms, so there ought to be plenty of room to relax in comfort.

While it is well worth spending a couple of hours in your lodge doing nothing but chill out and take in the amazing views, I think you should also explore the wider area, if only briefly. Among the many fantastic local attractions located a short distance from Llys Hafod is Anglesey Sea Zoo where you can see dozens of aquatic species, including dolphins and seahorses. You can also visit the golden Aberffraw Beach, which is situated a few miles along the Menai Straits, and fish for trout at Graiglwyd Springs in Penmaenmawr.

North Wales is definitely a great place for a glamping holiday. If you’re thinking of visiting the region, please leave us a comment to let us know where you will be going.
