A "stylish eco-glamping site" located in North Wales has been named among the best affordable short breaks in the UK.

With the cost of living continuing to rise along with the price of hotels, it can sometimes be hard to find a cost effective place to stay if you are holidaying in the UK.

With that in mind, The Times has come up with a list of the top 12 best affordable short breaks in the UK.

From converted rooms in pubs to rustic campsites and everything in between, this list is sure to have something for everyone. 

Introducing the list, The Times said: "UK breaks are so expensive! That’s the refrain of British holidaymakers each summer, as they browse luxury beach hotels and remote rentals in the most sought-after areas of the country.

"But the budget British hideaway still exists — you just have to know where to find it.

"An affordable stay here can look wildly different: the good old British pub, say, converted with stylish hotel rooms upstairs and great grub downstairs.

"A rustic campsite or hip glampsite surrounded by natural beauty, where kids can join in activities and grown-ups can enjoy peaceful nights by the campfire.

"Log cabins and shepherd’s huts can add a bit of back-to-nature magic while saving you money on a traditional hotel room."

The "stylish" North Wales glamping site among the UK's best affordable short breaks

Bert's Kitchen Garden was the only place in Wales to be named among the best affordable short breaks in the UK by The Times.

Bert's is a "stylish eco-glamping site" for "a new generation of campers".


The Times added: "Bert’s is a dream for getting the kids back to basics.

"Unroll your tent in a wi-fi-free wildflower meadow, ramble to a private shingle beach and cook dinners on a wood-fired barbecue — all on North Wales’ under-radar Llyn Peninsula, with walks on all sides.

"Parents who like their creature comforts will love the chic restaurant with its long communal table, serving steak, ’nduja pizzas and goodies from Bert’s titular veg patch."

Prices for Bert's Kitchen Garden range from £22 for camping pitches to £175 for two-person huts.
