Spending Easter in Wales

Easter bank holiday is fast approaching; have you made your holiday plans yet? Well what could be better than taking yourself off to Wales as a treat. A short break in Wales offers all sorts of benefits that you simply can’t find elsewhere.

Wales comes alive during the spring, the countryside and coastlines are at their spectacular best and there are a wide variety of activities for all visitors old and young. Yes the weather cannot be guaranteed but that is the same in most places and there is enough to keep you occupied during inclement weather.

Accommodation in Wales there is a wide choice whether it be a Welsh cottage, a hotel, a bed & breakfast or a caravan and all of these come in all shapes and sizes and are available throughout Wales. You can choose from the hills and beaches of North Wales, the countryside and mountains of Mid Wales or the cities and scenery of the south; you really are spoilt for choice.

Easter activities abound throughout Wales with many of the tourist attractions opening for the first time at Easter. There are many Easter egg hunts for the kids in the grounds of the famous castles of Wales or along the wide sandy beaches and when all the chocolate has been devoured you can treat yourself to a feast of great food. Wales is home to much of the UK’s great local produce so it stands to reason that having Easter dinner in Wales can be a scrumptious experience. The food is fresh and local, the lamb and beef are to die for and in their prime in the spring. On top of the wonderful produce there is no shortage of  top restaurants to accommodate you and your family or if you have hired a self catering cottage then why not go to a local farmers market and cook yourself a special meal.

Throughout Wales there are ideal settings for long, picturesque walks by the sea or across rolling countryside also plenty of exhibitions and individual events will be taking place right through the country over the Easter break. If you are feeling more adventurous there are more physical pursuits on offer such as diving, cycling, orienteering, fishing, kayaking, surfing and golfing.

For families we have already mentioned the many Easter egg hunts but the kids will be able to enjoy many other attractions all across the country. There are so many castles and forts dotted around that you will never be short of things to do (there are 51 castles and forts on Pembrokeshire alone). Many of these castles have displays of armour of falconry amongst other events. Kids always love wildlife and what better way to see it than in its natural setting, all across Wales there is something to see whether it be puffins, deer, owls, seals, dolphins and even whales.

All in all Wales is the perfect destination for an Easter break whether you’re hoping for an action-packed holiday or a more relaxing break away from home. If you are interested in booking a great trip away and to also find out about the host of things to do in Wales visit to plan your trip.
