Log Cabins - Rustic Homes for Your Weekends Away

October 20, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

The advantages of a log cabin in Wales

Nestling in stunning countryside, log cabins in Wales offer a host of benefits to those wanting a camping-style holiday without any of the associated headaches. Cabins are available for hire across Wales, with many available to rent year-round, and they all benefit from some of the most stunning scenery in the UK, and the opportunity to partake in a myriad of outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, and climbing.

Many log cabins in Wales have been built in an environmentally sensitive way (in line with BREEAM methods) and offer levels of privacy and security of which campers and caravanners can but dream. In addition, they often include luxury fixtures and fittings such as hot tubs, en-suite bathrooms, and even fitted kitchens.

Outstanding natural beauty

Log cabins are not the only draw to a country which boasts a rich and diverse history dating back to medieval times. Wales encompasses five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (including Gower peninsula - the first to be designated in 1956), three National Parks (the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, and the Pembrokeshire coast), and extensive stretches of Heritage Coastline (including nearly all of the aforementioned Pembrokeshire coast).

As you journey from the dramatic horizons of Snowdonia in the North, via the beaches, cliffs and coves of the Ceredigion coast in the West, to the valleys and hills of the Gower peninsula in the South; the Welsh countryside offers vistas that are both dramatic and soothing, with ample opportunity for exploration by cyclists, walkers, and nature lovers. The coastline has some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the UK, particularly in New Quay and Tenby, while the more adventurous can pony trek along the Brecon Beacons, or swim with dolphins in Cardigan bay.

Unique experiences

North Wales' Victorian holiday resorts, such as Rhyl, Prestatyn, and Llandudno offer the trappings of a more traditional seaside holiday experience when compared to West Wales' Pembrokeshire theme parks, cave expeditions or mining tours. In Conwy, you can tour the medieval castle and walls, while in Llangollen you can take a canal trip along the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which carries Llangollen canal across the valley of the River Dee.

You might decide to take a Snowdon Mountain Railway train to the summit of Mount Snowdon or, if you're of a more active disposition, hike up one of a number of paths that snake around the mountain to its peak. Snowdon's spectacular cliffs, such as Clogwyn Du'r Arddu, also allow ardent rock climbers ample opportunity for practice.

For a weekend away, you would be hard-pressed to find a destination that offers so many activities along with the promise of the relaxing, rustic charm of a log cabin holiday home to which you return at the end of an exhausting, but very satisfying, day.
