3 Walking Trails Not To Be Missed

With clear blue skies, milder weather and lighter evenings creeping back in, opt for the outdoors this January where coast and country walks have never looked so good! Blow the overindulgent winter cobwebs away and get back to exploring nature at it's very finest. With our wide range of cosy cottages, luxurious lodges, spacious apartments and generous villas across the Great British wilderness, our guests never have to compromise on the little touches that make exploring that little bit more enjoyable.

ONE. THE NEFYN CIRCULAR
A walk to blow the cobwebs away along this iconic golf course and hidden white-sand beach. Nestled amongst the powder-soft sands of Porth Dinllaen lies the Ty Coch Inn which is the perfect stop-off point to take a break, grab a cold drink and take in the incredible panoramas of Snowdonia and the Welsh coastline. Don’t forget your camera!

TWO. THE GORRAN HAVEN TRAIL
Showcasing cliff-top views, blissful bays and old-world pubs, this is perfect for families with plenty of stop off points.
