Take a walk in the splendid Bodnant Garden

Deciding on a place to spend a one night spa break is not an easy choice to make due to the variety of superb locations across the UK.

However, one area that all Britons should consider is North Wales, where people can take in glorious views, featuring some of the country's most spectacular scenery.

Not only is the region home to some of the UK's most naturally beautiful spots, but it is also the location of Bodnant Garden, which has established itself as one of Britain's must-see gardens.

It spans 80 acres and is situated above the River Conwy, while also providing excellent views of the Snowdonia range.

The garden is divided into two parts, with the upper section consisting of terraced gardens and informal lawns that are shaded by trees, while the lower area features the wild garden and offers views of the River Hiraethlyn.

While Bodnant Garden's advantageous position is one of its key perks, it is also home to a wide range of beautiful plants from across the world, including China, North America, Europe and Japan.

These plants have also been placed in a pattern that allows them to complement each other superbly, helping to boost the beauty of the garden even further.

Among these wonderful flowers are bright, fuchsia pink R. Amoenums, as well as violet blue R. Augustinii plants.

In addition, Orange Beauty, R. Matador and R.Luteum have been planted in the garden, making for a fantastic spectrum of sparkling colours.

Furthermore, as people gaze out to the streams that surround the premises, they will be treated to a fine array of flowers, including Polygonatums, Maconopsis Cambrias and Epimediums, acting as a wonderful enhancement to the scenic views provided.

Once people have toured the remarkable Bodnant Garden, they may want to explore North Wales' terrific scenery for themselves by embarking on one of the many trails available.

These cater for an array of different abilities, meaning that even those with no experience of rambling will be able to find an option to suit them.
