Wander Beyond Campervan Inspirations
The Romantic getaway
Looking for romantic getaway inspiration? Why not whisk your loved one away in a cosy campervan and truly get off the beaten track in North Wales?
Ditch the car and swap it for a campervan from Wander Beyond, Chester and head to the Hawarden Farm shop for delicious picnic goodies.
First stop, set on the edge of The Snowdonia National Park, Lake Vyrnwy, is the perfect spot to enjoy a scenic lakeside picnic. There are many activities on offer around the lake including bird watching, boating and walks. However, one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful scenery is to cycle round it. The 12 mile ride is very flat and suitable for all fitness abilities. Bike racks are available for hire from Wander Beyond Campervans or hire a bike there.
A short drive away is Britain's tallest single-drop waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr, from here you can also explore the Berwyn Mountains and surrounding hills. Next, head into The Snowdonia National Park, 1 of only 11 dark sky reserves in the whole world for epic star glazing opportunities. For a truly magical experience, Psyched Paddleboarding will guide you on a moonlight and starry sky SUP adventure. Just imagine Paddleboarding under a full moon and star studded sky for ultimate romantic experience!
Next stop, the enchanting Italian style village of Portmeirion on the coast of North Wales. You can enjoy complimentary entry into Portmeirion Village with any Spa Treatment at The Mermaid Spa, so why not treat yourself? Or, if food is more your thing, there is a choice of award-winning restaurants and cafes in the village. Take time to stroll round the exotic gardens, sandy beaches and stylish shops at this architectural Welsh Rivera.
Head west and you will reach Morfa Nefyn on the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula, Nefyn's two-mile long sweep of fine sand is crescent shaped creating ideal conditions for surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers. Here you will find the Ty Coch Inn. This tiny Welsh pub was voted the third best beach bar in the world!
From here, head north to the island of Anglesey, an area of outstanding natural beauty. In the south west corner of Anglesey is Newborough beach, an extensive stretch of clean sand with fabulous views of Snowdonia. Walking across the beach you can reach the Llandwyn Island, meaning "The church of St. Dwynwen". St. Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers, making her the Welsh equivalent of St.Valentine, what could be more romantic!? The island has the ruins of the church, a lighthouse and some fishermen's cottages and is cut off from the main land at high tide. Ensure to book ahead to enjoy local produce at The Marram Grass restaurant, stay at the onsite campsite and relax with a bottle of wine, knowing your campervan bedroom is waiting for you just outside!
You could easily spend a further week exploring Anglesey in the campervan, it really has so much to offer. But be sure not to miss out on the World Heritage 13th century Beaumaris Castle, before heading back on the A55 North coast road back to Chester.
A truly unforgettable romantic campervan experience!
