Places to visit in Snowdonia North Wales

Nathan's Top Places to Visit whilst on holiday in Snowdonia...


There are so many beutiful places to visit in North Wales, but I've collated my top 10 that I've shared with customers many a time.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do;



Caernarfon - 10mins in the car, the home of Caernarfon Castle which also has a few lovely pubs/shops to see.


Betws y Coed - lovely little Welsh village about 25min drive away. Its a fantastic drive through the Welsh mountains (where they filmed the Volvo advert).


Beaumaris - really nice seaside town with a great Ice Cream Parlour 'The Red Boat' and a nice hotel for lunch 'The Bull'.


Zip World - the fastest zip line in the world is just 10mins drive away from us, a truly exhilarating day!


Llandwyn Beach on Angelsey – previously voted one of the best beaches in the UK, lovely walk to the lighthouse with crystal clear waters.


Menai Bridge - Victoria Hotel & Dylans (10min drive) nice places to eat and unbelievable views of the Menai Straights!


Conwy – 25/30min drive from our site, a lovely Welsh town with independent shops to visit along with its historic Castle and the smallest house in Wales to view.


Portmeirion - Nestled between the Dwyryd esturary and the majestic Snowdonia mountains, Portmeirion Village is a private village resort and gardens, set on its own peninsula with vistas in every direction and endless pathways to explore, you’ll be transported into a dreamlike world, full of surprises.


Llandudno - Llandudno is a coastal town in north Wales with some good choice of shops and places to eat (Cottage Loaf is a brilliant little pub). It’s known for North Shore Beach and 19th-century & Llandudno Pier with the cliffs of Great Orme headland jut into the sea.


Lake Padarn - Llyn Padarn is a magnificent glacially formed lake nestled amidst some of Snowdonia’s most spectacular scenery. On its southern banks resides the busy village of Llanberis and towards the south-eastern end you will discover the enchanting and extensive Padarn Country Park. This covers an area of 800 acres and includes Coed Dinorwig, a rare and ancient Sessile Oak woodland as well as the marvelous Vivian Quarry. Most notably, both Llyn Padarn and Coed Dinorwig are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

Attractions within the vast Padarn Country Park also include the old Quarry Hospital Museum, the Welsh Slate Museum, a number of lakeside picnic areas and various crafts and adventure activities.
