Wonderful Welsh Mountain Stays

9 June 2022

Carved from the Ice Age over 10,000 years ago, the wild, rugged Welsh mountain ranges are a glorious sight to behold… whether you’re viewing them from afar, or challenging them up-close.

There’s also a huge amount of choice for mountain-lovers. Snowdonia National Park is a thriving adventure capital with nine ranges to conquer (though you can take a train to the top of Snowdon if you prefer!)

The Brecon Beacons, meanwhile, offer a tranquil haven for walkers, and the Black Mountain Range feels like a remote fantasy-land, filled with glacier-carved slopes and shimmering lakes.

With such a range of ranges to choose from, why not complete your chosen Welsh mountain experience with an unusual retreat that puts you right at the heart of the scenery – and the adventure?
