Spring Into Whitsun Breaks at Barmouth Bay

18th March 2015 Published by


Many people think of Whitsun (also known as Spring Bank Holiday) as the gateway to the summer, and for great swathes of the population it is a nice long weekend to enjoy, with no work and no school on the Monday. Certain places take it a little more seriously, such as Brockworth, Gloucestershire, where the hold their annual downhill cheese roll event. Importantly, Whitsun is the perfect time for your to join us at Barmouth Bay for a weekend getaway for the whole family to enjoy.

This year, the Spring Bank Holiday falls on Monday, May 25th. To time with that, we are offering a great weekend rate on our Superior Caravan (sleeps up to 6 people) for 3 nights starting Friday, May 22nd. The rate for this weekend is just  £446.

All year round, there are many great local attractions in Barmouth for all to enjoy, but Whitsun weekend brings with it some special happenings that are worth mentioning here. First of all, the Fairbourne Steam Railway offers a terrific day out riding the narrow-gauge steam railway up to charming Fairbourne. Departing from Barmouth Ferry, the railway’s website gives a full timetable for 2015, as well as detailed information on local attractions in Fairbourne, such as the Blue Lake Walk, the local beaches and other walking trails, the local golf course and bowling club and much more.

Another great way to take in some Welsh heritage while you’re here is to take a trip in the car up to Conwy for the Celtic Spring Fayre, which runs from May 24th to 27th. There will be food, drink, gifts and a lot more shown in around 100 fantastic stalls. This Celtic Fayre is one of many in the region that happen throughout the year.
