Town and city breaks in Snowdonia
Bangor, a charming little city nestled at the foot of the hills, is one of the few places where the traditional Welsh tongue keeps a profile in town. It is one of the smallest settlements in Britain classified as a city but has a university and is the site of Bangor Cathedral. The busy Celtic market town of Caernarfon is dwarfed by the polygon towers of its impressive medieval castle. If you don't fancy walking, then hop on the train at lake-bordered Llanberis for scenic rides around the popular Padarn Country Park. Our hotel in Snowdonia is based in Betws-y-Coed, a charming little town that sits snuggly in the Snowdonia National Park, in the beautiful Conwy valley where the river is joined by the River Llugwy and the River Lledr.
Holidays in the Snowdonia countryside
Come and investigate the hills and peaks where Sir Edmond Hillary practiced ascending some of the more daring slopes before conquering Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth. The wonderful national park, very near our Best Western hotel in Snowdonia, is a perfect setting to practice your Sherpa skills and clamber up (carefully) the panoramic ice-carved valleys and ridges of Wales' foremost mountain range. For something slightly less physically challenging, go for a hike through the beautiful Coedydd Aber Nature Reserve to the magical, cascading Aber Falls. For this gentle expedition, I would leave the crampons and pick axes in your Snowdonia hotel!
Beach holidays in Snowdonia
The perpetual and sun-laced sandy beaches of Harlech and Fairbourne set the tone for the region's beautiful coastline. You will find some great spots for windsurfing and water sports, as well as long and boisterous walks by the sea. Stay in a Snowdonia hotel near Abersoch Beach for the vibrant and exciting harbour community, a great place to enjoy a quiet drink or catch a tasty bite. The promenade funfair at Barmouth is also a delightful way to spend an afternoon.
Attractions in Snowdonia
Palladiun and Baroque Grade II-listed buildings, piazzas and grottos make Portmeirion village an elegant and unusual place to visit in west Wales - very much a mini-Italy. At the other aesthetic extreme, the boulder-clad Ugly House at Capel Curig is a Hansel and Gretel picnic spot. Penrhyn Castle is an unusual building, a country house in Llandegai and is built in the style of a Norman keep. Have a wander around Bangor to see Queen Victoria's one-ton slate bed, a piece of furniture made for her when she came to visit in 1859.
