See Snowdonia from a Luxury Lodge
We love holidaying, and we feel that British tourism is indeed on the up. Whereas the thought of British Tourism conjures thoughts of outdated arcades, seagulls, ice cream cones and caravans situated so close to each other we can scarce wonder how tourists even breathe, let alone coexist together in such cramped surroundings where it might seem that the slightest noise would wake up every living thing within a twenty caravan radius, we were more than happy to learn that each and every assumption we had made about the industry was incorrect in 2016.
That, as well as the age old belief that holidaying in the UK within winter is a fool’s errand.
Yes, you heard us right. There’s a number of amazing things to do and see and some very real natural beauty which simply isn’t there in the summer within Snowdonia, and we’re very pleased to say that we don’t think you’ve lived until you’ve seen the colours of Autumn reflected in this wild Welsh wonderland.
There’s also some very high quality accommodation options available off season, for bargain prices, with absolutely no sacrifice in regard to excellent service or amenities – literally just as good as when you’d visit in high season.
Ogwen Bank is an excellent example of this. The park itself is a very classy, high end retreat for those in the know... but also very welcoming to families, and not pretentious even in the slightest. Ogwen Bank is a very high-end package for those in the loop enough to seek it out, and we’re very certain that it could actually qualify as a Welsh treasure.
Situated in the quaint Welsh region of Bethesda within Snowdonia, Ogwen Bank boasts an absolutely stunning surroundings of acres upon acres of absolutely unspoiled woodland. While we couldn’t quite bring ourselves to take the plunge and give caravanning a try (Unfortunately, we’ve far too many memories of childhood camping experiences!) their lodges are absolutely high quality and utterly desirable places to be.
We couldn’t help but think as we initially stepped into a high-quality woodland lodge, literally right on the bank of the River Ogwen, that boasts a number of amazing features. In our eyes, it was more like a high-quality house than a wooden lodge, and it was very tastefully outfitted which offered all of the comforts of home, as well as so much more. Apparently, Ogwen Bank has even better lodges for sale in North Wales than the one we stayed at!
British tourism is indeed going from strength to strength, and it’s not difficult whatsoever to see why, thanks to companies such as Ogwen Bank leading the way when it comes to offering some seriously high-end accommodation at very reasonable rates.
