Romantic boltholes Travel writer Jane Anderson, Editor of 101 Honeymoons , has spent 15 years travelling the world staying at luxury hideaways, but reckons that Wales has many undiscovered retreats that are cosy, romantic and great value. Here are her favourite hideaways from designer B&Bs to top-notch glamping. Hafod Glan Gwy, Brecon Beacons Hafod Glan Gwy, near Hay on Wye, Brecon Beacons by Sheepskin Hafod Glan Gwy near Hay on Wye and the Brecon Beacons is member of the wonderful Sheepskin collection. The name means ‘summer house by the river’ but of course this stylish cabin by the River Wye is romantic year-round with faux fur throws, a wood burning stove, floor to ceiling windows and private patio. You won’t want to return to reality. Llety Bodfor Aberdyfi Bodfor Hotel, Aberdovey, Snowdonia i-escape Hip Hideaways has 12 boutique hotels in Wales. My favourite is Llety Bodfor in the seaside town of Aberdovey in North Wales, close to the Snowdonia National Park. All eight rooms are stylish and calm without pretension and a hearty breakfast is served in the dining room facing the sea. Pentre Mawr, Denbighshire Pentre Mawr, Denbigh, North Wales Borderlands by Pentre Mawr Country House Pentre Mawr may look like your usual swish country house hotel, but it has a secret. It’s home to African safari style luxury canvas lodges with king size beds, bathrobes, free standing baths and a private terrace hot tub. Couples can head up to the main house to eat, so you don’t need to worry about catering, but just focus on sleeping under the stars. Ty Ucha'r Ffordd, Conwy Bodnant Gardens, Conwy, North Wales Ty Ucha’r Ffordd is a beautiful one-bedroom cottage on the Bodnant Estate in Conwy, North Wales. With rolling views of the hills and a cosy log fire, you’ll shake off any city stress in no time. And best of all, you can take your dog along too! Hire bikes and explore the National Trust Bodnant Garden. The Victorian seaside town of Llandudno is just a 20-minute drive away. Sawday's Canopy & Stars Serentipidy Tipi, Mid Wales by Sawday's Canopy & Stars Sawday’s Canopy & Stars has Welsh glamping in the bag with everything from airstream trailers to mountain tipis with meditation thrown in. Those seeking a romantic hideaway are spoiled for choice, with this quirky selection of secluded retreats for loved-up couples.
