Self-contained tourism begins to open in Wales

Ogmore MS Huw Irranca-Davies has welcomed the easing of restriction on self-contained accommodation and is encouraging people to take a break in Wales this year instead of thinking of going further afield.

Restrictions in Wales have now moved out of the ‘stay local’ instruction and with more than 13 million in the UK expected to take holidays within the UK this year, Welsh tourism is in pole position to lead the UK’s staycation demands – including some of our tourism providers here in Ogmore.

Huw says:

“Many people will be desperate for a break this year, and whilst a resurgence of the virus in Europe may put going abroad on hold, the incredible efforts here in Wales mean that our beautiful nation is now the perfect destination for a getaway. After many months stuck inside, the coast and countryside here in Wales have never been more appealing.
We have some hidden gems here in Ogmore which we sometimes overlook, but throughout Wales we have some of the most wonderful coastline and mountains to explore, and a wide variety of self-contained accommodation in lovely locations. Holidaying at home in Wales this year will support our local tourism industries and boost both the local and Welsh economy as it bounces back from a difficult year.
We are all hoping for further easing of restrictions over the coming weeks, so that as the good weather comes, we have more opportunity to relax with family and friends. But for now, for anyone from Wales thinking of booking a holiday or short-break, Wales has so much to offer – and we can help sustain our valued tourism sector too!”
