There is a separate utility/drying room with a washing machine and tumble dryer on the ground floor. The four bedrooms each have en suite facilities.

LocationPorthmadog

Located on the edge of Snowdonia Park this harbour town is a great base for a walking holiday or outdoor activity trip. There are several mountain ranges nearby with the Glaslyn estuary forming part of the unspoilt Cardigan Bay. The long sandy beach at Blackrock Sands is very popular for bathing and water sports, or for something different visit the Blackrock Llama Centre which offers guided llama treks from the Coed y Brenin Forest Park.

Previously a busy shipping port, its interesting seafaring history can be explored at the local Maritime Museum. The pretty village at Portmeirion is a must see, with stunning Italian buildings and colourful gardens. Surrounding the resort are around 70 acres of woodland walks and within the village points of interest include Hercules Hall, Central Piazza, Battery Square and the Shell Grotto.

There are several railway lines to choose from, to travel along the coastline and to neighbouring towns to day trips. The Harbour Station runs historic steam engines and the Highland Heritage Railway takes visitors on a short journey to the Engine Sheds. Harlech Castle has a floating bridge which connects with the onsite visitor centre and impressive views from the battlements. Another fortress well worth a visit is Criccieth Castle which is perched on the cliffs overlooking Tremadog Bay.

North Wales

North Wales showcases some of the UK's most varied landscape, from the snow-capped mountains of Snowdonia to the beaches of the Llyn Peninsula. Indeed, it is one of the only parts of Britain where you can be in the mountains in the morning and at the seaside by the afternoon. The diverse animal life of the region reflects this, with everything from otters to ospreys and seals to dolphins.

Not many places are imbued with such history and heritage, which is reflected throughout the region from cottages to castles! Attractions abound, with zoos and farms, steam railways and activity centres. There are regular events from international cultural festivals and shows to family fun days.

The area also offers a huge range of outdoor activities; walking, cycling, fishing, golf and water-sports to name only a few. In many parts of North Wales the spoken language is Welsh, not English, although people who cannot or will not speak the latter are rare, and signposts and other notices always display their message in both languages.
