Autumn has officially arrived, but that doesn’t mean that the time for holidays is over, as you can still enjoy an exciting staycation to North Wales in the coming months. As the trees start to change colour, the summer crowds begin to leave and the area settles into a blissful calm. If you still need some persuasion as to why you should book a mini getaway in the autumn, read on to find five reasons why a holiday at this time of year is worthwhile.
Enjoy the Community Experience
As North Wales is a little quieter out of the summer season, you can have more of a local experience, indulging in the daily happenings and community spirit of the area. Living like a local on holiday helps you to feel a sense of calm and security, and helps to build that home away from home feeling you want with your static caravan. There are tonnes of events in the autumn, from music and comedy gigs at local venues, food festival celebrating home-grown produce and Halloween and Bonfire Night are great ways to meet the North Wales residents!
Find Your Favourite Hangouts
When there are fewer tourists to contend with, autumn gives frequent visitors such as those to our holiday parks a chance to find their favourite places to hang out, whether it’s a pub, restaurant, café or walking route, attraction or beach. You can take your time shopping around for your favourite haunts, discovering hidden gems and make the most of the quieter main attractions of the area such as Conwy Castle, Llandudno Pier, the Great Orme and Snowdon.
Off Peak, Holidays are Cheaper
Autumn holidays tend to be a lot cheaper, as it is outside of peak periods and the children have all gone back to school. Therefore, you’ll have a little extra spending money to splash out on holiday treats, or it may mean you decide to stay longer at our holiday parks and make the most of your time away! Of course, this is a little difficult if you still have children in school, but you can always take an autumn holiday during the October half term. Though you won’t be the only family to think of having a relaxed holiday before the rush of Christmas, it is still a great time to take a staycation, as the weather can still be pleasant, prices are cheap, and most attractions are still open.
The Weather Isn’t Too Bad
Once summer winds down, it is normal to experience the blues, as the weather isn’t as warm and the standard work and school routine are back on. However, an autumn staycation will give you something to look forward to, and if there isn’t a storm raging, chances are the weather will be pretty good. The UK often has mild autumns, with clear blue skies and brisk weather. Hats, gloves and scarves may be required, but hopefully, umbrellas and raincoats can be left behind when you head out on a walk in Snowdonia. Best of all, the crisp autumn weather means hot chocolates are definitely on the menu, perfect for cosy evenings in your caravan!
Gorgeous Autumn Scenes
Autumn is a beautiful season when the leaves turn from bright green to warm orange, red and yellow hues. North Wales is particularly pretty at this time of the year, as the colours change to warming tones ready for winter. We highly recommend heading out on a walk or hike in Snowdonia to see the stunning autumn scenery at its best and be sure to have a camera with you so you can share the breathtaking views. Favourite spots that boast the best autumnal views include Llyn Crafnant, Penrhyn Castle and the Aberglaslyn Pass near Beddgelert.
