Head off the beaten path while staying in hotels in Wales
Guests relaxing at luxury hotels in Wales have been advised by travel publication Lonely Planet to beat the crowds and seek out the country's hidden gems on their holidays this summer.
According to the guide, visitors enjoying a stay at accommodation in Wales should consider a seal-spotting expedition on the Gower Peninsula on the north side of the Bristol Channel, or walking to Barafundle Bay on the Pembrokeshire coast.
"Capturing the magic of Britain sometimes involves getting away from the crowds, getting off the many tried and well-trodden paths and finding other great places to visit," Lonely Planet travel editor Tom Hall told the Daily Telegraph.
A survey carried out by the organisation found that although the popularity of domestic "staycations" appears to be on the increase, many British travellers still hanker for more sunshine.
Earlier this month, a study conducted by comparison shopping website Shop.com revealed 60 per cent of people quizzed intend to stay in the UK during the summer months.
