Gwynedd

Gwynedd in North West Wales has an untouched mountainous and coastal landscape, which includes the magnificent Snowdonia National Park and a coastline of sandy beaches that face out over the Irish Sea. An area of great natural beauty and the perfect antidote to our busy, hectic lives!

The region is sparsely populated and has a rich and colourful history that dates back to 5th century Britain; a magical kingdom to explore, filled with history, heritage, eye-watering views and fantastic attractions. Here you’ll find towering mountains and fast flowing rivers, ancient forests and tranquil valleys, fascinating castles and quiet beaches.

There’s plenty to see and do; a great way to get a feel for the area is to travel on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways which takes you 13 miles from Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog and a 25 mile journey from Caernarfon through the foothills of Snowdon, respectively.

While you may see many of Gwynedd’s attractions en-route many of them are worth stopping for. The castle at Caernarfon is just one such attraction. Looming magnificently over the town the 700-year-old castle is in fantastic condition and offers a truly atmospheric visitor experience. Make sure you check out the views too! The Welsh Slate Mine paints a fascinating picture of Gwynedd’s industrial history. This may sound a bit dry but it’s actually a fun and interesting way to learn about the beautiful landscape that surrounds you and well worth a few hours of your time.

Garden lovers should head for some high-altitude garden delights at Wales’ highest garden, the Caerau Uchaf open gardens with a pet’s corner and adventure playground for the children. Also of interest is the seaside garden, Sunningdale, at Amlwch; a wild area with beaches, caves, cliffs and wildflowers.

And of course no trip to Gwynedd would be complete without a ramble in the Snowdonia National Park so get on your walking boots and you’ll be rewarded with some of the most stunning scenery in Britain.

If you’re ready to begin your adventure take a look at our our selection of holiday cottages in Gwynedd.

    Situated in the western region of the Snowdonia National Park by the sea, Clyd Fan is a delightful holiday home in the centre of historic Harlech. This charming, detached bungalow features a lovely, well-maintained garden, so you can enjoy fine al-fresco dining with a view. The town of Harlech is home to the World Heritage Site Harlech Castle, built by Edward I, along with many a fine café and restaurant that can be reached by foot, along with a glorious sandy beach just a 5-minute drive away.


    The Cambrian Coast is a most compelling landscape – stretching from Cardigan to Harlech, holidaymakers will be spoilt for choice on things to see and do. And thanks to the bus stop that’s literally just outside the front door, exploring the nearby seaside towns along the coast couldn’t be easier. The bus takes you straight to the train station, from which you can take a scenic train ride south towards Barmouth, or north to Pwllheli and Portmeirion, which was used as the setting for the 1960s TV series ‘The Prisoner’.


    Just 12 miles away, Blaenau Ffestiniog is regarded as the adventure capital of North Wales thanks to the town’s fantastic Bounce Below underground trampolines inside an old slate cavern, and the amazing Zip World, the largest zip wire zone in the world. Keen golfers won’t be disappointed with the St David’s Royal Golf Course just a short walk from the property, and there’s also a theatre, cinema and a leisure centre with swimming, indoor rock climbing and an open-air football pitch all within a ½-mile radius from Clyd Fan. Beach 1 mile. Shop and pub 200 yards, restaurant 100 yards.

    In an elevated position, 400ft above sea level, this 400-year-old detached cottage enjoys a dramatic backdrop of mountains and spectacular views over Caernarfon Bay. Lovingly restored and gently modernised, it offers not only peace and seclusion, but is also close to the rugged splendour of the Snowdonia National Park, fine sandy beaches, stunning mountain walks and the charming village of Trefor. There are two excellent beaches near the cottage. One is a gently sloping sandy harbour about 10 minutes’ walk through the village from the village shop, which is used by local fishermen to launch their boats. The other one is reached by walking towards the quarry past the local village pub and post office. It is a pebble beach which will stretch the most challenging beachcomber. In addition, the cottage is a short walk from one of the most famous Iron Age hill forts in Wales - Tre Ceiri, The Town of Giants, at the back of the cottage. The foundations and walls of the Iron Age huts are still remaining and the gold torques excavated from the ruins are on display at the National Museum of Wales. All in all, an ideal holiday retreat for families and weekend escapes throughout the year. Shop 2 miles.
