Bordered by the Irish Sea, with its beautiful coastline and the Snowdonia National Park at its heartland Gwynedd has much to offer guests staying in one of its many holiday homes. Gwynedd has some of the most amazing landscapes in the UK. History and tradition fills the county, with medieval fortresses such as Caernarfon or Harlech Castle, or the wonderful architectural village of Port Merion all waiting to be explored. The picturesque Llŷn Peninsula also makes up part of the county of Gwynedd where the remoteness from urban life has given the peninsula a culture-rich image, making Llŷn a popular destination for holidays. Gwynedd features some impressive mountains, and the Snowdon Mountain Railway can take you right to the summit of the highest mountain in Wales for some breath-taking views of the county and beyond.
