A small town made famous by its grand castle, Harlech enjoys a picturesque, cliff-side setting with fantastic views over Tremadog Bay. An ideal spot for a peaceful break, the town’s interesting history, impressive architecture and stunning scenery combine to make it one of Snowdonia's top attractions.
The harmony between Harlech’s buildings and the local landscape is typified by the castle. Originally built by the sea, geographic shifts mean that the castle now sits half a mile inland, sprouting out of the top of the cliff that towers above the town.
The town has state of the art leisure facilities and provides a comfortable base for adventurers looking to access the Rhinog Mountains. If you’re a keen golfer, then tackling the fairways at Royal St David’s, one of the country’s finest courses, is a must. And while you’ll want to steer clear of the sand on the course, Harlech’s vast beach, with its rolling dunes, is a popular spot for kids to play and adults to relax.
