Why North Wales?
We believe North Wales is the perfect backdrop to your recovery, offering a rich, green and often wild landscape with lots to explore. Atmospheric scenery, natural wonder and wildlife, pristine lakes and rivers, stunning beaches, craggy mountains, rolling hills, meandering coastal paths, castles and Celtic culture are all right here on our doorstep.
In 2017, North Wales was named the fourth-best place in the world to visit by independent traveller’s bible Lonely Planet. Our region is now known as the adventure capital of the UK – and gives visitors the chance to explore old mine workings, bounce around on underground trampolines, surf at the world’s first inland wave pool, and fly in excess of 100mph on the globe’s fastest zip wire.
And, with the Snowdonia National Park and Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within a short drive, there are plenty of chances to get out in the majestic landscape for walking, cycling, climbing, and exploring.
Ancient history and cultural life
North Wales can boast 19 blue flag beaches, one within walking distance of our front door – with lots of chances to get involved in watersports and other fun activities. Or you could visit our historic sites, museums and galleries to learn more about the ancient history of this corner of the UK, and the unique linguistic and cultural life which flourishes here in North Wales.
Regular physical activity, an appreciation of nature, and an awareness of the world around us can be one of the most effective ways to stay grounded and in the moment, providing an important route to the peace and mindfulness which many people in recovery find helpful.
Our rehabilitation programme includes weekly adventures in beautiful North Wales. Together, we will take in some of the best sights and attractions this glorious region has to offer, and learn a little of Wales’ ancient history and unique identity.
