Snowdonia is the perfect location for that family walking or cycling country holiday in the UK.
For that perfect, extra special weekend break why not visit Portmeirion Village and stay at the luxury Portmeirion Hotel.
If you’re looking for a holiday with a touch of history, then visit one of the 'World Heritage Sites' Harlech Castle or Llechwedd Slate Caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog which is the 'home' of Welsh Slate.
Visit the small town of Beddgelert which according to legend is the resting place of Gelert, the faithful hound of the medieval Welsh Prince Llewelyn. Llanberis 'Snowdon's village' is the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park.
Snowdonia is packed full of historic steam trains. You can take your pick from Talyllyn Railway, Ffestiniog Railway, Snowdon Mountain Railway, Welsh Highland Railway Llanberis Lake Railway, Bala Lake Railway, Fairbourne Railway, and there’s even a little steam train and museum in Corris!
If you prefer walking holidays to steam travel then you can always do the famous walks found up Snowdon or Cader Idris. For those who fancy a more leisurely holiday in Wales then you can always take the train!
As with all holidays in Wales, Snowdonia is no stranger to myths and legends, find out more about King Arthur and his legend at the King Arthur Labyrinth attraction just outside Machynlleth.
Snowdonia National Park has everything you’d expect from a country holiday in the UK, a Welsh country holiday or weekend break is like no other!
