Take a walk in Wales this Father’s Day
Famed for its mountainous landscape and curling coastline, Wales never disappoints when it comes to offering serene country walks, craggy mountain climbs and wild beaches... the perfect combination this Father's Day.
The Bear Hotel, Crickhowell
Lying between the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, The Bear Hotel in Crickhowell is located perfectly for exploring southeast Wales. With exposed oak beams, wooden floors and antique furnishings, the convivial former coaching Inn has been welcoming guests for over 500 years. Popular with locals and guests alike, enjoy a swift drink at the bar before heading out for a true Father’s Day trek.
Renowned for its breath-taking summits and captivating surroundings, walkers travel far and wide to visit Brecon Beacons. Offer a multitude of short walks and longs hikes, the wonders of this stunning National Park can be enjoyed by all. Popular routes include the Offa's Dyke National Trail which runs along the border between England and Wales, whilst alternative routes such as the Beacons Way and the Marches Way pass through the Black Mountains – provide a challenging hike but rewarding, owe-inspiring views at the summit.
Alternatively, Wolfscastle County Hotel is a haven of luxury settled beside the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline – ideal for those who would rather enjoy a lulling stroll across the sand before hiding indoors for an exquisite fine dining experience. Afterwards, treat Dad to a superb dining experience at the Wolfscastle's two AA Rosette restaurant, with dishes served up by the magnificent Head Chef, Tom Simmons. You'll certainly be in his good books for a while afterwards...
Castle Hotel, Conwy
Make it a Father's Day to remember and treat your old man to a stay at Castle Hotel in Conwy. Sit back, relax and share memories, whilst dining on their special Fathers Day Steak & Frittes Special from £16.95 per person including a complimentary bottle of Brooklyn Lager for the man of the moment.
The Bull’s Head, Beaumaris
A trip to Beaumaris wouldn't be complete without a good long walk to take in the sights and stretch those legs. You and your Dad will be spoilt for choice too as the natural beauty and scenery in North Wales make it a walker’s paradise. There's the 125 mile long Coastal Path around Anglesey, farmland, sand dunes, salt marshes, nature reserves, beaches…and of course the highest mountain in Wales and England!
And if your Dad is the adventurous type, there are plenty of ways for you to get your feet wet during your stay, whether it’s surfing, sea kayaking, rib riding or sitting back to enjoy a cruise around Puffin Island.
Tucked away in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains, beside the Ceredigion coast, the Y Talbot Inn is an excellent base for exploring the charming market town of Tregaron.
Positioned on the western border of the Cambrian Mountains range, Tregaron offers a variety of routes on its doorstep - ranging from hidden mountain valleys and isolated summits to the more gentle terrain of the Teifi Valley and the stunning Ceredigion Coastal Path. With the welcoming team at the Inn avid walkers themselves, they will be more than happy to suggest the most scenic routes around, and with delicious packed lunches available to order, why not make the most of an outdoor adventure this Father’s Day.
The nearby Afon Teifi is the perfect spot to catch up wild brown trout; there is also salmon and Sewin in season. Tregaron Angling Club has rights over 22 miles of the upper Teifi as well as lake fishing in Llyn Berwyn and tickets can be purchased at reception at Y Talbot.
