Escaping to Wales
For a long time Wales has been a place of escape for those retreating for a week or two from the city life. Bunkhouses and hostels were established in the climbing areas around 25 years ago and there are now many always in beautiful locations. The National Parks such as Snowdonia and the Brecons Beacons are well supplied with bunkhouses and hostels, ideal for walkers and cyclists. The coastal areas such as Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and the Gower now have plenty of hostels. Ideal for the family holiday maker and in some cases close enough to walk or cycle between. It is now possible to walk between some hostels on the long distance paths such as Offas Dyke. Much of inner Wales is undiscovered with quiet roads, ancient villages and no problems parking. A great location for a cultural holiday discovering the past as well as walking on deserted hills.
