Mindfulness meets adventure in the Ceiriog Valley
The West Arms, country Inn in North East Wales has joined forces with adventure tour operator, Adventure Tours UK, to introduce the first mindful walking break in North Wales.
The 2-night winter break, which brings mindfulness and adventure together, is aimed at busy professionals who want to escape to a quieter corner of North Wales where they can spend quality time indulging on their own mental well-being, unplug from the rush of everyday life and learn how to live a more mindful life.
Adventure holiday specialist, Adventure Tours UK’s, co-founder Claire Copeman says;
“In these testing times our guests are looking for more than just a ‘quick fix’ break from the daily grind. This escape is an investment into their well-being – it’s the antidote to the stresses and worries of today. Our qualified guide is more than a walk leader, she is a master of mindfulness and will arm clients with a toolkit which they can take away and continue to practice at home to help them live a more balanced life in the future. The wild landscape of the Berwyn Hills is our classroom, where guests will learn how to reconnect with themselves.”
Nicky Williamson, owner of The West Arms Country Inn says;
“This is the ultimate in ‘feel good’ breaks and embraces the welsh feeling of cwtch (hug). In today’s climate we feel very enthusiastic to offer such a fitting and therapeutic style of trip working with such a unique partner. Mindfulness reflects our ethos of spending quality time with yourself away from the rush of everyday life. Guests can look forward to delicious locally sourced food and drinks, cosy log fires and fresh country air whilst they learn how to look after their mental well-being long after they have checked out.”
Priced from £325 pp, the Mindfulness Walking escape is a small group experience (no more than 12) and perfect for solo travellers who want to be social.
A mindfulness and walking guide will lead you through the beautifully wild Berwyn hills, using each of your senses to explore the surrounding countryside and immerse yourself into the season.
Return to the comfort of the award winning Country Inn, The West Arms, where you will be spoilt with a delicious and locally sourced home cooked menu washed down with the very best of local ales, spirits and wines and great company beside roaring log fires.
