Short breaks in north Wales


Short breaks have become increasingly popular over the years. Many people like to enjoy several short breaks a year in the UK. North Wales is a popular short break destination for the mass of people who live in the Midlands or north of England because it does not take them too long to get there.

People arrive with their bicycles for mountain biking or take to the hills with rucksacks on their backs. North Wales is an excellent short break destination all year round.

Short breaks are usually weekend breaks that run from Friday though to Saturday or Sunday, or mid week breaks which can be anything from 1 to 5 days from Monday to Friday. Some cottage owners insist on a minimum of 3 days but it's always worth asking. Others run on completley flexible arrangements.

The Isle of Anglesey is pleasantly rural and green. Much of its beauty can be seen around the coastline with numerous nature reserves to visit, birds to spot and natural completely unspoilt beaches.
