Hotel chain in national parks move

Hotel chain Travelodge is planning an expansion that could help those who like to go walking in national parks enjoy a wider choice of places to stay.

It is targeting the national parks for the creation of a number of new hotels, with locations like Grasmere in the Lake District, Betws-y-Coed in Snowdonia and Aviemore in the Cairngorms all earmarked for the new developments.

Due to planning rules, most of the 37 new venues will be located just outside the boundaries of the UK's 15 national parks.

Chief executive of the chain Guy Parsons said: "Traditionally Britons have opted for a coastal or city break, but as more people explore Britain they are rediscovering new holiday hotspots and as a result we have seen a significant surge in rural breaks."

One new Travelodge plan already agreed will be based in Glossop, just outside the Peak District boundary.

Glossop is one of the start points for a climb of Bleaklow, at 2,077 ft the second highest summit in the national park.
