WINTER ESCAPES: Get back to basics on Bardsey Island

on in Travel

Because getting away from it all doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Bardsey IslandStill got some holiday left to take at work but can’t afford to go abroad this close to Christmas? Why not ditch the plane and take a Staycation instead? Staycations – holidaying in the UK rather than going further afield – are a great way to take the stress out of your trip. And with so many amazing places to stay in the UK you’ll never want to leave again…

If you really want to get back to basics then there’s no better way than with a visit to Bardsey Island. Sleep in a charming rustic cottage and embrace the way things used to be. Be warned: there’s no running water or electricity but we think that just adds to the charm!

In the Middle Ages, the abbey on Bardsey Island was a magnet for pilgrims. Nowadays it’s a place to grab some real peace and quiet and maybe for spotting seals, dolphins and porpoises. Which sounds a lot more fun than searching for eternal salvation if you ask us!

Check out the island for yourself now…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
