The 870-mile Wales Coast Path runs the whole length of the Welsh coastline: the first continuous coastal path of any country in the world. It passes through seascapes of breath-taking variety, from flat wetlands to towering cliffs, featuring hundreds of harbours, coves, inlets and islands – and around 230 beaches.
With, a language and culture that’s the oldest in Britain, a warm Welsh welcome and food and drink made with skill by passionate people… this is the greatest coastal experience of 2018.
Bodysgallen Hall, a National Trust owned hotel is located in North Wales and is the ideal base to explore some of the stunning Welsh coastline. The Victorian resort of Llandudno is about a mile away and a drive round the Great Orme provides magnificent views of the North Wales coastline and the Isle of Anglesey. Bodysgallen Hall’s grounds cover over 200 acres of National Trust gardens and parkland. It is the perfect setting for walking fans who can start exploring the Wales Coast Path from close to the hotel. The Wales Coast Path offers both flat and mountainous walks ideal for all levels of walkers.
The Hall enjoys a privileged location in North Wales with spectacular views of Snowdonia. Snowdon was picked as the most picturesque sight in the UK in 2017. Guests staying at Bodysgallen Hall wake to a front row location and view.
The 17th century house with views across to Snowdonia and Conwy Castle, is well placed for visiting the Welsh coast and mountains of North Wales. Bodysgallen Hall is home to just 31 bedrooms split between spacious bedrooms in the house and cottages with their own outdoor space. The hotel’s award-winning chef John Williams prepares Welsh cuisine with much of the produce picked from the local vegetable gardens within the hotel’s grounds. The restaurant at Bodysgallen overlooks the stunning gardens and has been awarded 3 AA Rosettes for fifteen consecutive years. Many of the fish dishes come from the seas around Wales.

North East Wales encompasses the whole of Wales in one small corner: mountains, valleys, coast and castles. Take a narrow boat or walk along the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a 300-metre-long ‘stream in the sky’ some 40 metres high, which is an engineering marvel and a World Heritage Site, located not far from Llangollen, on the Welsh-English border. Walk the last stretch of the Offa’s Dyke, through the Vale of Llangollen and all the way to Prestatyn. Or explore the nooks and crannies of Ruthin Gaol – one of North Wales’ most fascinating buildings.
