Our Area and its Attractions



Snowdonia National Park with its astounding natural beauty is right on our doorstep. You can enjoy a drive through the most magnificent scenery or walk to the summit of  Snowdon itself, the highest mountain in England and Wales. The views from the summit are fantastic and on a clear day you can see Ireland. By the way, if you do not fancy the walk there is a train to the summit.




As you would expect, this part of Wales is ideal walking country. From the gentle rolling hills of the Llyn Peninsula to the West to the soaring majesty of Snowdonia to the East, Cricceth is an ideal location for those wishing to enjoy a walking holiday.




This area abounds in fantastic beaches of all kinds, long and sandy or rocky with pools, and all in Criccieth or on our doorstep. This coast is warmed by the Gulf Stream and therefore offers a fantastic climate, even staying quite mild in winter months. Swim in our clean waters or even watch our regular visitors, the dolphins and porpoises, swimming in the bay.



Tourist Attractions

We have numerous attractions in this area, both historic and purpose built.
Ride the World famous Ffestiniog Railway, or visit Portmeirion an Italianate village used in the TV series ‘The Prisoner’. See the slate caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog from where much of the Worlds roofing slate came from or visit the Maritime Museum in Porthmadog and discover the history of the Tall Ships that plyed their trade from there. Visit the David Lloyd George museum in nearby Llanystumdwy or climb Criccieth Castle for fantastic mountain and coast views.
