Incredibly beautiful UK village named best destination for Easter holiday

The outdoor lifestyle retailer GO Outdoors has shared the best locations for a memorable Easter staycation that offers beautiful surroundings and plenty of attractions without massive crowds.

With the Easter break around the corner, many families are looking for a short change of scenery that does not cost a fortune.

Using factors such as nearby things to do, wildlife and biking tours and the cost of public transport, GO Outdoors found that Betws-y-Coed in Caenarfonshire is the best spot for an Easter staycation.

The Welsh phrase for ‘Prayer-house in the woods’, Betws-y-Coed is a small village located just a stone’s throw away from the Snowdonia National Park, featuring the highest peak in the British Isles.

Whilst tourists feeling particularly active can climb Snowdon, those wishing to take it easy can get to the summit by a train ride up or stay local and admire the River Llugwy, which runs through the heart of the village.

Another destination that GO Outdoors recommended tourists should visit this Easter is Ambleside, a small Lake District town with a solid reputation for holidays.

With a population of under 2,600, Ambleside has an incredibly quaint image, filled with traditional stone buildings and narrow, walkable streets.

However, the town has a lot to offer it’s visitors, including a wide range of shops, restaurants and no less than eight pubs within the centre of Ambleside alone.

However, families who want to head to the coast over the Easter break were advised by GO Outdoors to visit St Ives in Cambridgeshire.

The town, which was recently voted as the best family holiday destination by Coast Magazine, is on the doorstep of the beautiful Porthmeor Beach, a half-mile-long sandy stretch that is nicely sheltered from the wind.

Tourists looking to see something unique during their break can also visit the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, which showcases some of the best work created by the artist who lived in St Ives from 1949 until her death in 1975.
