November’s not the first month you automatically think of when planning a short break away. That’s one reason why it’s such a great time to come here. Now’s the time for near-deserted beaches, quiet hill walks and exploration at your own pace. There are fewer if no queues, plenty of parking and relaxed laws regarding dogs on beaches.
Need more reasons to come? Try these:
Catch the last and most spectacular autumn colours – with our milder autumns (2015 already being one) trees are keeping their leaves longer. For the best and most beautiful displays of autumn reds, yellows and golds, early November is the perfect time to visit. Head for the wooded valleys around Betws-y-Coed where rivers have burst into life and the sheltered trees are late to shed their leaves.
Get a better sense of what makes North Wales tick – now you can explore walled towns and castles at a more leisurely pace, you can get a better sense of our heritage and culture. You might hear Welsh more widely spoken, too. Try a few words in a local pub and enjoy a welcoming response – just as you might if abroad.
Benefit from some really low accommodation rates – here at the Celtic Royal dinner, bed and breakfast starts at just £59 per person. With free use of leisure facilities too, that’s great value for a high quality break! Check out our great offers here
Find the ideal Christmas gift – North Wales is filled with independent stores and delis. At this time of year they’re stocked for Christmas, so this is a great way to beat the big crowds and find something a little bit different. You can’t buy everything online (yet)! Head for the narrow streets inside the walls of Caernarfon and Conwy for boutique gift shops and sellers of fine local produce
Enjoy a winter wonderland – the first really cold nights bring ice and frost to Snowdonia’s peaks and deep valleys. It’s a great time of year to discover the beauty of early winter – wisps of morning mists, rock faces thrown into sharp contrast with ice and frosts. Climb the higher peaks for the chance to witness temperature inversions – where the land below is blanketed in cloud and you’re in bright sunshine. It feels like flying!
So why not visit North Wales in November? Even if you’ve been in the summer, you’re missing out on a very different feel for this beautiful part of the world.
