Find cottages in GwyneddVisit Gwynedd

Gwynedd in North West Wales has an untouched mountainous and coastal landscape, which includes the magnificent Snowdonia National Park and a coastline of sandy beaches that face out over the Irish Sea. An area of great natural beauty and the perfect antidote to our busy, hectic lives!

The region is sparsely populated and has a rich and colourful history that dates back to 5th century Britain; a magical kingdom to explore, filled with history, heritage, eye-watering views and fantastic attractions. Here you'll find towering mountains and fast flowing rivers, ancient forests and tranquil valleys, fascinating castles and quiet beaches.

There's plenty to see and do; a great way to get a feel for the area is to travel on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways which takes you 13 miles from Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog and a 25 mile journey from Caernarfon through the foothills of Snowdon, respectively.

While you may see many of Gwynedd's attractions en-route many of them are worth stopping for. The castle at Caernarfon is just one such attraction. Looming magnificently over the town the 700-year-old castle is in fantastic condition and offers a truly atmospheric visitor experience. Make sure you check out the views too! The Welsh Slate Mine paints a fascinating picture of Gwynedd's industrial history. This may sound a bit dry but it's actually a fun and interesting way to learn about the beautiful landscape that surrounds you and well worth a few hours of your time.

Garden lovers should head for some high-altitude garden delights at Wales' highest garden, the Caerau Uchaf open gardens with a pet's corner and adventure playground for the children. Also of interest is the seaside garden, Sunningdale, at Amlwch; a wild area with beaches, caves, cliffs and wildflowers.

And of course no trip to Gwynedd would be complete without a ramble in the Snowdonia National Park so get on your walking boots and you'll be rewarded with some of the most stunning scenery in Britain.

If you're ready to begin your adventure take a look at our our selection of holiday cottages in Gwynedd.

Two beautiful, well-presented holiday properties, ideally located near the harbour with private parking, and within walking distance of the shops, pubs and restaurants. Each property, one of a row, has its own sitting-out area on the second floor. The seaside resort of Barmouth in north west Wales lies on the wide estuary of the River Mawddach in Cardigan Bay. The town has a typical Welsh charm with stone and slate-built houses, often 3 and 4 storeys high are set against the Welsh mountain backdrop. Stunning views can be enjoyed across the estuary, the beautiful harbour and the endless sandy beach. Located on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park it is a most scenic location. Although the town has a small summer funfair and some arcades, it is generally popular for family beach holidays and those looking for a quiet holiday in a beautiful part of the world. It is ideal for walking, mountain walking, cycling, golf and bird watching. The expansive beach at Barmouth allows plenty of space for children to play ball games, dig in the sand, sunbathe or play in the shallow waters. The Italianate village of Portmeirion is a pleasant 11 mile drive along the coast, passing the well-preserved Harlech Castle along the way. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
