After a busy year at work and school, many families like to get away from it all with a holiday in some quiet area of the UK that is famed for activities which appeal to a wide range of ages. Wales makes for the perfect holiday destination when looking for someplace remote, yet interesting enough to captivate even the youngest members of the family. For example, Brecon Beacons National Park has a number of seasonal attractions and park events that will hold the interest of anyone young or old. There are castles, mountains and waterfalls, nature walks, cycle trails and even the famed Dinosaur Park which children love to visit.
Although there are a number of lovely places to visit in Wales with self catering cottages, Brecon Beacons is amongst the all time family favorites simply because of the National Park that is located here. Known for its stunning landscape, this area of South Wales with its mountainous terrain is perfect for those who want to kick back and relax. Unlike many holiday spots where there are clubs and dos which are meant to appeal to younger partygoers, Brecon Beacons has attractions that appeal to any age group imaginable. From easy guided walks through the park to ale tasting and high tea, there is quite literally something for everyone.
The reason why it is so important to find self catering independent cottages when taking a holiday in Brecon Beacons is because of the fact that there is actually no camping on the National Trust land itself. Although there may be some local farmers and landowners who may be willing to rent space, it isn’t likely to find ‘facilities’ in these locations which would make it quite inconvenient to find toilets or to go about cooking a family meal. When visiting attractions such as the National Park in Brecon Beacons booking independent cottages is the best way to enjoy a family holiday in Wales.
