Planning Early for Family Holidays

During spring months families begin preparing for summer holidays which is a wise decision when it comes to booking accommodations. This is especially important if the family intends to book a self-catering cottage as they book up quickly for seasonal holidays. However, the first thing to do is find a destination that will offer plenty of activities for the entire family and sometimes this is not an easy task. For those looking to spend time together in more remote regions of the UK, Brecon Beacons in Wales is the ideal location.

Of particular interest is the National Park, of course, with a variety of activities to enthral the entire family. There are walks, waterfalls and themed events and festivals throughout the entire season. Some are educational such as the planned Geopark Festival from late May through mid June which is a series of walks with interesting talks on the geological aspects of the park and surrounding regions. Bear in mind that the walks range from easy to energetic so it would be important to take into consideration the age and fitness levels of family members.

When looking for somewhere to stay in the area, there are a number of independent cottages for hire that can be rented quite reasonably, especially when booking early. These can accommodate almost any size family group from three people to nine and above, whilst some are actually to be found bordering on the National Park itself. From historical landmarks to the Dinosaur Park, there is sure to be something of interest to every age group when staying in Brecon Beacons which is why this has become a favourite family getaway for holidaymakers in the UK and from around the world as well. To get an authentic taste of Wales, this is the place to stay.
