Hafod Y Gwynt from the lake

Hafod y Gwynt gardens and lake

Without going anywhere, you can wander in the gardens and adjoining estate, sit by the stream, walk round the lake and absorb the views.

Pen Y Gwyrd Hotel

Next door, we have the famous Pen Y Gwryd Hotel who supported the first ascent of Everest.  Enjoy a drink in the evocative bar areas.

Snowdon

Climb it, or go up on the train - or just enjoy the view from below.  The highest peak in England and Wales has a great majesty - when the clouds clear!

Pen Y Gwryd Snowdon Capel Curig St Julittas Llyn Brenin Caernarfon Castle

Capel Curig

An historic village, just up the road. Here is the nearest shop, lots of pubs and you must visit St Julitta’s church, the smallest in Snowdonia.

Plas y Brenin

Snowdonia is a playground for a range of outdoor activities.  Walking, climbing, canoing to name a few.  Visit the Activities centre at Plas Y Brenin to get expert tuition.

Caernarfon Castle

The most impressive of the  Welsh castles of Edward 1, which has earned World Heritage status.  Well worth seeing!

Beaches

Snowdonia is not normally the place that one would associate with beach holidays!  But a glance at a North Wales map will show how near we are to some of the finest beaches in Britain.

Local history

North Wales has been inhabited since before Roman times, and there is a wealth of evidence of its cultural and industrial past.  Not to mention legends...

Golf

North Wales has more than 50 fine  golf courses in spectacular scenery. Whether you prefer parkland or like the challenge of a links course, there is something for you here.
