Why not treat yourself to a different Christmas this year and escape to Eryri – Snowdonia. Your fully-equipped cosy cottage will be the perfect place to return to after a day’s exploring. You can hike through the forest for lunch in Betws-y-Coed and if you don’t want to walk home, the local on-demand bus service is like a personal taxi: use the app on your phone to tell the driver where to collect you and, best of all, the little buses come with mood-lighting!
For an adrenaline fix, you can try Zip World and Adventure Parc Snowdonia. If you like to take things at a more leisurely pace, how about lunch at Portmeirion, a steam train to Beddgelert or explore a castle (we have more than 600 here in Cymru – Wales)
