Snowdonia's sublime southern counterpart, the Brecon Beacons offer up a load of equally impressive hikes including Pen y Fan and the Black Mountains.

What are the Best Events in Wales?
If you want to witness the Welsh capital at its electric best then head to Cardiff when the Six Nations is in full swing. Whether you're lucky enough to be packed into the 70,000 seater stadium or you're watching the game in a bustling boozer, it's impossible not to get caught up in the feverish atmosphere.
Other Events in Wales:
- March - St David's Day
- April - The Great Welsh Beer Festival
- May - Hay Festival
- July - Royal Welsh Show
- August - Bog Snorkelling Championships
Particularly around the Six Nations, group accommodation in Wales is the way to go as hotels get snapped up sharpish. With your own Wales self-catering properties, you get greater flexibility, you can come and go as you please, and you can have all of your friends/family under one roof. Tidy!
What is the Best Time of Year to Visit Wales?
Wales is a sensational choice all year round. The parties never stop in the big cities and the walks and scenery are just as spectacular in the winter as they are in the summer. Obviously, if you're looking for some warm weather and some beach time it's best to head there in late spring/early summer. But if you're looking for a cosy escape in the colder months, you'll be sure to find something on offer with Groupia Stays.
