Glamping in Anglesey

So, what exactly IS glamping?! Basically, it is a combination of the words glamour and camping, and it is used to describe a small, but growing niche in the holiday rental market. It is ideal for people that would like to enjoy the great outdoors, but be surrounded in comfort whilst they are doing it. It is also perfect for those that are looking for a unique place to stay during their next vacation.

If any of this sounds like it might be attractive to you, then perhaps staying in a Yurt in Anglesey might make a great idea for your next holiday. Based on the traditional Mongolian dwelling, each one combines the comforts of home with a unique appearance. Able to sleep up to four people, they are suitable for couples looking for a romantic setting, families looking for somewhere fun to stay, or even friends looking for a memorable holiday.

The facilities within these yurts are also impressive. With their wooden floors, and cast iron fire places, they have a cosy feel which harmonises with the modern features such as WiFi. These yurts don’t have a TV though, which many people actually find to be one of their more appealing aspects!

The accommodation aside, Anglesey is a wonderful place to visit for a holiday, as there is so much to see and do there. It must be noted though, that the use of a car is all but essential in order to make the most of your stay in this beautiful part of the world. Using one, perhaps the first place to visit would be the nearby South Stack Lighthouse, which offers some stunning views. For a taste of how life was like for a traditional family in Wales in times gone by, a trip to Swtan cottage museum might be in order, and for attractions that feature wildlife, either the Anglesey Sea Zoo or Foel Farm make good suggestions.

These are certainly great places to visit, but perhaps the biggest attraction that should be visited during a holiday in Anglesey, is Beaumaris. The town itself is very pleasant, with many quaint shops, as well as pubs and restaurants. Its stand out feature, though, is the superb Beaumoris Castle. This glorious structure was built for King Edwards visit in 1283, and remains to day one of the most outstanding castles in the entire United Kingdom.

Lovers of outdoor leisure activities will also enjoy a holiday in Anglesey. Whether swimming, climbing, hiking or mountain biking, there is always something to satisfy the need for an adrenaline rush! Water based activities such as sailing and sea kayaking are also popular pastimes in the area. You can find cottages listings on the directory Unique Holiday Cottages.
