After all the relaxation, what else could you do during the Christmas and New Year break?
You cross the Britannia Bridge; the landscape has already hit you and the festive season feels like it’s in full swing. You’re on Anglesey and you’re heading for the northern most point of the island.
The fire has been laid, awaiting your arrival. A few special treats have been placed in the kitchen and the hot tub is calling you even as the temperature drops.
It may just be one of the most picturesque places you could wake up on Christmas Day and as you usher in your New Year to the spectacular backdrop of Dinas Gynfor from the comfort of the sumptuous hot tub you just might think at that moment that life couldn’t possibly get any better.
While hundreds of people swarm the cities to celebrate, you and your loved ones will be cosy and enjoying the festivities in style, peace and tranquillity in the beautiful welsh countryside.
While you’re in the area we thought, you’d like to know what other things North Wales offers. Here’s a few things you could do over the festive season.
Fun fact: There are more castles in Wales (per square mile) than anywhere else on earth. With more than 600 castles, we are truly steeped in history. North Wales has three fine examples, all of them happen to be set in dramatic landscape with incredible views.
If you want a day trip from Llanlliana House you could go to Beaumaris Castle, Conwy Castle and Caernarfon Castle. Conwy Castle is a great stop for extending your break a few hours on the journey home.
Are you a National Trust member?
We know people travel far and wide to visit National Trust properties and we have three stunning locations practically on our doorstep.
Plas Newydd is a Manor House that boasts exquisite gardens and a remarkable panorama of Snowdonia and views of the Menai Straight. Just 15 minutes from the Britannia bridge, the Grade I-listed gardens include the Italianate Terrace, Rhododendron Garden and Australasian Arboretum there’s a stunning mural by Rex Whistler that delivers an optical illusion as you stroll by the painted panels.
Penryn Castle is full of wilderness, history (some of it dark) and den building, park running fun. The architecture is exceptional and the surrounding acreage beckons all ages to explore, built in the early 19th century.
Bodnant Gardens While children are still encouraged to explore, and interact with nature; there’s a somewhat calm atmosphere that radiates from the exceptionally well-managed and loved gardens, which are flat, level and accessible.
There’s plenty nearby to get the blood pumping for the ones looking for adventure.
Bounce Below, Llechwedd Slate Caverns is a trampoline centre quite unlike any other. With a complex of interconnected large cargo nets suspended in mid-air in a cave, suspended cargo nets that traverses the cave system so you and the kids can explore the underground like never before. It’s an otherworldly experience, trampolining on nets suspended 20 metres above ground, there’s nothing quite like bouncing five metres in the air then looking at the twenty metre drop below the net to shake off the Christmas cobwebs.
There’s also the Bear Grylls Adventure Rib Ride based out of Holyhead and also with charters docking at Menai Bridge. You will be taken care of by consummate professionals in incredibly powerful boats as they take you on one of the thrill seeker packages. A taster would be under the two bridges and a brief run down on some local history (along with views of Plas Newydd from the water).
Alternatively, you could go out to Puffin Island and to the open water, check out the local wildlife and return for a frothy hot chocolate and another dip in that relaxing hot tub (you’ll need it after seeing the Menai Straits at a 45-degree angle from the rib doing doughnuts).
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous and want to know what it feels like to fly, try Zip World. Zip World boasts the longest zipline in Europe and the fastest zip line in the world. It is not for the faint hearted. In addition to the zip wire there’s a wonderful world of activities to join.
Finally, as you’re on the way home, you could make a quick stop at the longest place name in Wales. Only ten minutes from the Britannia Bridge, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (or LlanfairPG as it is locally and affectionately known) is another little diamond among the ruggedness of Anglesey’s landscape. Why not take one last selfie for your grid?
Burn burn burn, the Ring of Fire
The grueling Ultramarathon, “affectionately” dubbed “The Ring of Fire” is a three day, 135 mile test of endurance for those among us who like to push their bodies to the breaking point and beyond; just to see what happens.
The first day of the run sees competitors starting their run in Holyhead and completing the first section of 35.7 miles in around 10 hours in Amlwch.
Ultramarathon running may sound like a challenge that only the fittest, bravest or perhaps more “loco” would attempt but really, it’s shouldn’t be as daunting as running a traditional marathon. Some things to note about ultramarathon running, as mentioned by some of the best runners themselves is:
It has been suggested by race organisers in the past that competitors say together in the spirit of the event and they do offer a place to stay after day one.
However, should you be running as part of a larger group or should you wish to have a cheerleading section will you on to the finishing line, we thought it might be of interest to you that we happen to have some wonderfully plump beds and a steaming hot tub that we’ve been told dulls even the weariest of legs.
