Criccieth is well worth a visit on a cottage holiday. The popular seaside resort of Criccieth is the gateway to the scenic Lleyn Peninsula, a long spit of land dotted with pretty fishing villages and lovely beaches, with Caernarfon Bay on the north side and Cardigan Bay to the south.
The thirteenth century castle, standing proud on a rocky outcrop, dominates the town, which is also set on two lovely beaches, a mixture of sand, and pebble and rock pools at low tides. The town has a good array of shops and services along the high street, a range of restaurants, cafes and pubs together with two leisure centres, an 18 hole golf course, pitch and putt and a host of water-based sports opportunities.
At Llanystumdwy, close to town, the Lloyd George Museum celebrates the life and times of Britain’s first war time Prime Minister, in an interactive and informative display. As the gateway to the Lleyn peninsula, Criccieth has the advantage of easy access to Porthmadog, Portmeirion and the Snowdonia National Park as well as proximity to a host of beautiful beaches and scenic spots along the rest of the peninsula.
