Travellers looking for a spot of luxury on their next UK short break need look no further than North Wales.
Three of North Wales’ top five star boutique hotels have joined forces to launch a six-day luxury ‘hotel hop’ for visitors wishing to follow in the footsteps of George Borrow to explore the best the area has to offer.
George Borrow was born in Norfolk in 1803 and his book, ‘Wild Wales’, describes a stay in Llangollen in the summer of 1854.
His vivid descriptions of hiking through North Wales form just part of the tale, Borrow was a noted linguist, speaking Welsh and discussing the origins of place-names.
The ‘hotel hop’ encompasses the rolling hills and valleys of the Vale of Clwyd and Snowdonia’s striking mountains and coasts. The tour has been designed to appeal to the busy traveller looking for alternative to the usual touring holiday.
Ffynnon, an award-winning intimate boutique hotel in Dolgellau in Southern Snowdonia; manorhaus, a contemporary restaurant with rooms and gallery in Ruthin in the Vale of Clwyd and Plas Dinas, a luxurious country house with Royal connections near Caernarfon on the North West coast form three points of a triangle covering North Wales and provide the ideal bases from which to explore the area.
