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.

Tregennis Ref: OPX

This spacious detached property is located in a quiet area with wonderful sea views out over Cardigan Bay and Criccieth Castle from the 5/6 seater hot tub, most of the downstairs rooms and all of the four bedrooms. Ideal for families or groups, this delightful holiday property has two living rooms, each with sea views and open fire as well as a sunny garden and patio area with direct access to the beach (only 6 minutes’ walk via public railway crossing). The village of Criccieth (within walking distance) offers a lovely selection of shops, restaurant and bars, and golf, fishing, horse riding and walking are all available locally. Criccieth Castle dominates the coastline with what remains of its twin towered gatehouse, and offers great views over the sea to Harlech.
Nearby Porthmadog offers a fascinating waterfront with the refurbished Maritime Museum, and across the harbour lies the famous Ffestiniog Railway which travels through stunning scenery that ranges from the broad expanse of the Glaslyn Estuary to the deep green vales of the Vale of Ffestiniog and the slate-grey of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The other main lure of the town is the unique Italianate village of Portmeirion - it is probably best known as ‘The Village’ in the 1960’s British cult TV series The Prisoner.
The enchanting village of Beddgelert nestles in some majestic mountain scenery, and is the starting point for some wonderful walks, including the famous walk to ‘Gelert’s Grave’ - the burial place of Prince Llywelyn’s faithful hound. Within easy driving distance is Snowdon (the highest mountain in Wales), Caernarfon, with its walled town and castle (a World Heritage Site), and the attractive resort of Abersoch - popular for its watersports and annual Wakestock Festival, National Trust headlands and an excellent variety of sandy beaches. Shops ½ mile.
