PEARTREE LIFE: Experiencing Languages

Wales‘ most beautiful holiday destinations

Summer is already here and if you didn’t have time to book a beach holiday on the Maldives or a power sightseeing trip through 35 European cities, we have some destinations in Wales just as beautiful as interesting in stock for you!


This coastal town in North Wales was modelled after an Italian village and on a sunny day, the colourful facades of the buildings could almost trick you into believing you’re on the Italian Riviera.

Quay House, the smallest house in Great Britain

Quay House in Conwy has the dubious distinction of being Britain’s smallest house; a claim to fame that has turned this tiny abode into something of a tourist attraction. It costs £1 to enter the property, which at 1.8m high was deemed unfit for human habitation in 1900, much to the chagrin (and possibly relief) of its then owner, Robert Jones, a 6ft 3in fisherman.

Snowdonia National Park

If you're looking for a holiday, short break or an epic weekend away then you'll find all you need here. Walk up Snowdon at 3,560ft, the highest mountain in Wales and England, experience the world's fastest zip wire at Zip World or ride the perfect wave at Surf Snowdonia in a 300 metre lagoon. There's plenty more choice with over a 100 attractions and 200 activity providers.

Zip Lining in North Wales

North Wales is the self-styled “zip-line capital of the world” and seems to have reasonable stake to that claim. Zip World Velocity, at Bethesda, offers riders the opportunity to exceed 100mph, while Zip World Titan, in Blaenau Ffestiniog, offers one of the world’s longest zip rides with 8,000m of cables. And then there’s Zip World Fforest, which gives riders the chance to rush through the forest at Betws y Coed.

Brecon Beacons

Glorious upland, beautiful waterfalls and amazing wildlife awaits visitors to the Brecon Beacons. Jon Pimm, a warden at the park, suggests Mynydd Illtud Common, close to the village of Libanus. “On a clear day you can see the four main hill ranges that make up the park and the view is dominated by Pen y Fan, the highest point in the National Park at 886m," he said.

Barry Island

Since the last century, people of all social backgrounds alike have loved coming to Barry Island to spend a nice day in the town with a Pleasure Park at the coastline. It is also known for its starring role in the television series Gavin and Stacey.

Walk the Offa’s Dyke path

“This 177-mile path links Prestatyn in North Wales with Chepstow on the Severn estuary, more or less following the Welsh border in the shape of the great earthwork thrown up by the eighth-century King Offa of the Mercians,” said Sam Llewellyn, who followed the route for Telegraph Travel. “Academics are still arguing about its precise length, and whether it was built as a practical fortification or a symbolic barrier. What is undeniable is that it is a long, beautiful and not too difficult walk over wild and sometimes mountainous country.”
