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.

Gwynedd is home to many seaside resorts such as Harlech, which lies within the Snowdonia National Park and is best, known for the landmark Harlech Castle. Morfa Nefyn, a small village located on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula contains a host of traditional shops and a sandy beach. There are plenty of hamlets nearby too, such as the picturesque fishing hamlet of Porthdinllaen, at which you can experience welsh culture or just enjoy a drink at the local pubs.

Heritage Steam lovers will be spoilt for choice, as Gwynedd offer visitors a choice of 3 of the ‘Little Lines of Wales’. In addition to the Snowdon Mountain Railway, tours on the Welsh Highland Railway from Bangor and, perhaps the most famous of them all, the Ffestiniog Railway which runs up into Snowdonia from the picturesque seaside town of Porthmadog.

Gwynedd’s steep cliffs and craggy mountain-ranges make it perfect for outdoor activities such as abseiling and mountain-biking, which can be taken part in safely at various centres across the county. For real white knuckle entertainment, take a ride on Velocity, the fastest and, at over a mile in length, the long longest zip wire in the world.

The varying terrain also means there are plenty of interesting walks, particularly in and around Snowdonia. The popularity of walks in the area means there are often organised walks going on that are ideal for discovering the best routes. Or for something a bit different head to the museums dotted around Gwynedd that give you an insight into the culture of the county and how it came to be. The National Slate Museum is the most popular in Gwynedd, and tells the story of how Wales’s famous quarries developed over time.

Gwynedd isn’t all rural mountains and sparsely populated villages. Bangor is a popular city in Gwynedd and is home to a large shopping area with several smaller independent retail outlets scattered around the area. Bangor is known for its arts, and you will often hear classical music being performed or see the striking Pontio arts complex. A walk along Bangor’s elegant Victorian Pier which offers beautiful views across to Anglesea is also recommended.

At the southern end of Gwynedd is Tywyn is another popular location which is a town and seaside resort and is famous for the location of the Cadfan Stone, a stone cross with the earliest known example of written Welsh. Twyn is also the starting point for another of Wales’s narrow gauge steam railways.
