Mountain holidays aren't just restricted to skiing and snowboarding in winter - Summer bring plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
Mountain biking, hiking, lake swimming and watersports are among the opportunities for the energetic. Or if you're after a more sedate break, then there are lakeside beaches to relax on, flora and fauna for nature lovers, or just enjoy the fresh mountain air and the stunning scenery.
Have a break from the coast this summer and head for the mountains...
“Relaxing rural Welsh paradise” My husband and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at The Creamery/The Hideaway. The Hideaway was cosy and ideal for a romantic stay with the luxurious hot tub just outside. Thomas and his wife go to a lot of trouble welcoming you
We absolutely loved staying at the hideaway.
The owners had made loads of effort to make our stay wonderful. With treats layed out when we arrived and homemade bread and jam left in the kitchen.
We're very happy to hear you loved staying at the Hideaway....we wanted to create a special place for couples who feel like treating themselves to a little bit of luxury, or as my Nan used to say - 'A little bit of what you fancy does you good' ! All the best
