The Llandudno Summer Ice Rink Is Due To Close Soon – Don’t Miss Out!

Image
Llandudno is a fantastic destination for your summer holiday. It’s a wonderful town, originally purpose-built for tourism in 1848. It attracted a number of revellers back then, and absolutely hasn’t lost any of it’s sparkle since. With careful maintenance as well as a number of some seriously fun things to do in the surrounding areas, Llandudno fully deserves it’s title of the Queen of Welsh resorts and is the largest seaside town within Wales. This prestigious title is helped in no small part by the array of fantastic hotels in Llandudno which line the wonderfully clean and carefully maintained shoreline – truly a spectacular sight to behold when the sun’s out and the sea and skies are blue.
That, after all, is what is to be expected from a holiday by the seaside, isn’t it? Llandudno has it in abundance. An excellent marriage of history and progressiveness, sun, sea, sky and – an ice rink?
Believe it or not, it’s true. Or at the very least, it’ll be true for August. Venue Cymru, situat…

A Dog Friendly Getaway in Snowdonia

Image
We love nothing more than being able to holiday away, taking time away for ourselves from our busy day to day lives. This time is important.  In fact, psychologists regard holidays a source of happiness and an essential for quality of life (Filep, 2012; Richards, 1999).  With our busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to make time for ourselves and our loved ones (pets included).  When leaving your dogs with the kennels just doesn’t seem like the right choice for someone who considers them as much part of their family as children. For you, a dog friendly getaway is the answer. And what could be better for you and your dogs than beautiful Snowdonia, North Wales. The mountains, the lush green forest backdrops and the calming sound of nearby rivers make the best relaxing environment for you and your pets. It’s a good thing there’s plenty of dog friendly accommodation in Snowdonia to give you the best possible stay.
The principal village in Snowdonia is Betws-y-Coed. Due to its exceptional b…

Surf The Conwy Valley!

Image
The Conwy Valley and surrounding region of Snowdonia and North Wales offer so very much to see, do and experience, we struggle to think of how anyone could fit it all on a typical break. The Year of Adventure is very much is full swing, with a multitude of thrill seekers arriving from England, Europe, and even wider to experience this beautifully underrated holiday treasure-trove. Hotels in Conwy and the surrounding areas are prepped, equipped and ready to provide a great experience for thrillseekers that need a bit of down time on their adventure.
Surf Snowdonia is an excellent (and certainly unique) thing to do in North Wales, and we’re huge fans of it and it’s amazing Crash and Splash Lagoon, which is a real opportunity to go head-to-head against friends or family (or both) and put your agility, determination and balance to the ultimate test against a sea of obstacles. Whether it’s giant spinning balls, monkey bars, climbing walls, rope bridges or balance beams, it’s unbelievably fu…

A Luxury Dog Friendly Experience

Image
We enjoy going on holiday with our pets, and it just doesn’t seem right to drop them with friends and family when we’re off about and around, leaving our dogs in particular to pine. Some of us
report that we don’t really enjoy going away as much with the consideration of our dogs left at home or in a kennel. On the other side of the coin, we’re not exactly fond of staying at “dog friendly” hotels, as they have a reputation for being quite… chewed. If you’re looking for a premium dog friendly hotel in Caernarfon, we have a treat for you, and your best friend as well.
The Tyn Rhos Country House is accommodation set in a stellar location, just between Bangor and Carnarfon—with close proximity to the gorgeous Snowdonia region as well as being a mere 5 miles away from the gateway to Anglesey – the Menai Bridge. Graded with Visit Wales’ prestigious 5 star rating, we couldn’t believe our eyes that the Country House is dog-friendly. It’s a beautiful location to sight-see the whole of the North …

Llandudno Voted Top Seaside Resort in the UK By TripAdvisor!

Image
We do like to be beside the seaside, especially so when said seaside is anything alike Llandudno, in North Wales. Llandudno seems to be breaking the trend of desolate, uninhabited, grey and bleary towns on the sea that seem to inspire nothing but despair, and instead is a shining, beautiful example of how care, attention, and constant improvement can break the silly notion that holidays in the UK are dead. It’s really not the case and Llandudno in particular proves it– the most iconic feature of this beautiful town being the gorgeous Victorian Seafront Hotels in Llandudno , set upon the gorgeously clean North beach.

Why does Llandudno have so many fantastic period buildings? Originally created as a resort in Victorian times and functioning as one ever since, Llandudno thankfully managed to escape most of World War II’s bombings, and as such, the constant attention and care paid to these gorgeous buildings has meant that they have remained fully operational, and chock full of stunning …

It’s premier seaside resort, Llandudno recently won TripAdvisor’s Best Seaside Resort of 2016, trouncing competition from England and Wales. Yet moving away from shambling up mountains and the inevitable pull of the seaside, did you know that there’s a hidden jewel for all self-respecting gourmets located just between Bangor and Caernarfon? Fine Dining restaurants in Caernarfon? Really?

Absolutely. The Tyn Rhos Country House has a vast menu, which is changed out daily, as their commitment to sourcing good, local fare of the absolute highest quality is paramount. Their team of Michelin starred chefs source their ingredients daily, in order to guarantee dining of the absolute highest quality for all of their lucky patrons.
