We’ve been talking a lot about walking and hiking recently, but if that’s not your thing what better way to relax and unwind than heading to the spa?
Even though you’re heading to the countryside, there are still plenty of places you can visit that will offer you relaxation, alternative therapies and spa treatments. Why not book a day’s treatments and let everyone else climb Snowdon?!
Portmeirion Mermaid Spa
The Mermaid Spa at Portmeirion is just 10 minutes away but you could be in another country.
The spa is open daily and you have the choice of a spa day with four treatments such as manicures, pedicures, massages and facials, or an afternoon tea after having your nails done and your hair blow dried.
