Girls weekend away

There’s nothing better than getting the girls together for a relaxing and tranquil weekend. Our Barmouth parks are the perfect setting for a wonderfully tranquil girls weekend by the beach. For large groups, The Farmhouse at Tyddyn Goronwy, with 6 bedrooms, is great for large groups.

If you’re wanting a base with a hot tub, The Barn – also at Tyddyn, is also an ideal sanctuary. Not only is there a pristine beach to enjoy, you can also hop on the 10-minute train from nearby Lyons Caerelwan to the lively town of Barmouth to enjoy its wide range of shops, bars and restaurants.

Boys out the house

Cool beers, sizzling barbecue and access to an exclusive fishing pond sound good to you? Then St Mary’s will be right up your street for a proper lads trip. Immerse yourself in the peaceful solitude of the nearby Gronant Dunes for a day of fishing, beers and burgers or hit the town of Prestatyn with numerous bars and award winning restaurants to choose from such as Wales’ best curry house; Suhail or the finest Welsh steak at Patagonia: Welsh Roots.

There’s plenty to get up to nearby too, why not try your hand at BMX at the award winning Marsh Tracks in Rhyl, or Go Karting in the nearby Tir Prince theme park in Towyn. You can also make the most of your time here in North Wales by going further afield, enjoy towns like Llandudno (45 mins by car), where you can enjoy activities such as axe-throwing, snowboarding, water-sports and hikes around the Great Orme. Or for a proper thrill seekers adventure, get yourself to Zip world for the fastest zip line in the world, across the old quarry of Blaenau Ffestiniog!

Best for both

Whether it’s a girls or boys trip, the Retreat at Woodlands Hall (sleeps 8) is ideal for large group getaways.

In under 10 minutes by car, you are able to reach the market town of Ruthin, which was voted ‘the best place to live in Wales’ by the Sunday Times in 2023. There’s a wide range of things to explore, including a visit to Ruthin Castle, which is ideal for a delicious afternoon tea with the girls and a wander around the grounds. There are also many walks around Moel Famau country park.

If it’s a boys weekend, Ruthin is close by to many group-led activities such as white water rafting, hiking and foot golf. Taste some local produce at the many traditional welsh shops on the square, or grab a beer or two at one of the local pubs.
