A little further out, but still less than an hour away, you'll find a whole host of places to visit. From the spectacular scenery and adventure-fueled attractions of Snowdonia National Park to the world heritage listed Caernarfon and the delightful little island of Anglesey, you'll need more than visit to take in all the delights of this part of North Wales.
Snowdonia National Park
Around a 30-40 minute drive from us is the stunning Snowdonia National park with its wealth of attractions. A must for hillwalkers who flock to the area to scale Wales' tallest peak (if you don't fancy the hike then take the little vintage mountain railway up to the summit). Explore the region over several days and seek out the waterfalls, hidden lakes and sleepy villages. Children and adults will enjoy the Electric Mountain experience at Llanberis (gateway to Snowdonia). For those looking for high adrenaline activities look no further than the zip world experience, bounce below and surf snowdonia. Go on we dare you!
A world heritage site with one of the most impressive castles in Wales. Take a break from the history and enjoy lunch in one of the town's many independent cafes/restaurants or a pint in Wales' smallest bar. After lunch enjoy a spot of retail therapy in the quirky little shops lining the streets within the castle wall (Palace Street has a lovely selection of independent shops and restaurants) or a walk along to the marina (Victoria Dock) with its restaurants and theatre. Round off the day with a yummy ice cream or homemade Dutch pancakes (or both!) at Scoops ice cream and pancake parlor. The dragon fruit ice cream is our favourite. Delish. For younger visitors there is also an excellent play park and skate park over the little bridge from the castle car park.
A lovely little island only a short drive up the coast and across the spectacular Menai Strait. Perfect for family friendly beach visits, rock pooling, wildlife spotting and lazy picnics by the sea. Don't miss the pastel coloured houses and laid back vibe of Beaumaris. It's castle, quaint shops, great food and boat trips provide plenty to amuse young and old alike.
Don't miss out on a day trip to the iconic and mysterious Portmeirion, made famous in the 60s TV series The Prisoner. Explore the colourful buildings and spot all the playful touches. Also home to the pottery of the same name, sold in the onsite shop. Please note no dogs allowed in the village.
