Quaint villages and bustling seaside resorts, high mountains and sandy beaches, adrenaline-filled attractions and peaceful hikes: no wonder that North Wales is the most popular destination
for UK staycations!
And if so many people choose it over other areas and counties, imagine how lucky you’d be to be able to return to this stunning part of Wales as often as you wish.
There are many reasons why a holiday lodge is a rewarding investment, but why choose North Wales specifically instead of, say, the Lake District or Cornwall?
The North Wales coastline is ideal for lots of beachy activities, such as sandcastles with kids, eating the best local fish & chips, and trying watersports or fishing.
You’ll also find both small villages and larger towns like Llandudno that will make for the most magical summer days out.
North Wales is home to the third national park in Britain. With its 823 square miles, Snowdonia is a giant playground for the most outdoorsy families.
Reaching the summit of Mount Snowdon is obviously a popular favourite, and the area is especially renowned for mountain biking. However, there are lots of things to see in Snowdonia for quieter days out, too.
We could never move away from North Wales because… where else are we going to find such an impressive variety of views and landscapes? If you also don’t like compromising or choosing between the mountains and the sea, you’re definitely going to fall in love with this diverse area.
Other notable mentions are its hills, woods, islands like Angelsey and Puffin Island, peaceful estuaries, charming peninsulas, and even the only rainforest in Britain.
North Wales has a rich and unique history that you can still live and breathe today. It’s reflected in its landscapes, like the glacier-carved valley around Llyn Idwal, and manmade monuments and buildings.
One of the first things you’ll notice is the incredible range of castles in North Wales, from evocative ruins to well-preserved fortresses.
This area is also full of impressive churches and cathedrals as well as medieval homes that you can still visit (there are two in Conwy alone!).
While North Wales is especially famous for its natural beauty, it’s also filled with popular attractions and hidden gems that will make for a fun day out regardless of your adrenaline levels.
For the bravest ones out there, there are hidden caves underneath all those mountains: you can choose to walk around them, bounce (for real!), or zipline, especially when you head to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns.
And how about discovering a colourful Mediterranean village with Italian architecture, fountains, and ice cream… without leaving the country?
Even though you can always drive up to a different town or unmissable event, one of the best things about choosing North Wales for your holiday home is the fact that you can actually switch off from the outside world.
With such tranquil settings and hikes in nature, it’ll be so much easier to leave your worries at home whenever you head to your family lodge.
Thanks to the variety of landscapes and attractions offered by North Wales, you’ll get the best of both worlds. You’ll have a familiar place to return to—a home away from home, a new local pub, a favourite takeaway—but never get bored or be forced to do the same things over and over again.
The cost of life in Wales is around 15% lower than in England and the rest of the UK.
This means that you can get a much more luxurious lodge for the same sum but also that you’ll save yourself some money in the long run when eating out and making the most of your holiday time.
