Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Harlech, Wales.
Land of male voice choirs, silver bands and rugby, the historic town of Harlech lies within the Snowdonia National Park and boasts a number of outstanding attractions - its castle, its beach and its golf course. Just three reasons to book a Harlech cottage.
Let's start with the castle, a World Heritage Site dating from 1283. This mighty structure was originally lapped by the sea, but today sits atop a rocky outcrop and dominates the landscape for miles around. No doubt you'll visit at least once, if only to savour those magnificent views stretching north to the Llyn Peninsula and inland across the Rhinog Mountains.
Alongside the castle is Harlech's award-winning four-mile beach, a prime example of a natural dune system and a National Nature Reserve. Never crowded, this is a wonderful place for lazy days swimming in the sea and building sandcastles with the children. But best of all to sit and watch the sun sink beneath the horizon, leaving the sky ablaze with colour.
Behind the dunes nestles the Royal St. David's Golf Club, one of the world's top links courses. Rolling fairways and fast greens challenge the most experienced player, while the setting and views will take your breath away.
Harlech's winding streets feature tea rooms and restaurants, plus a selection of small shops. There's also a swimming pool and a theatre offering a variety of entertainment. And on your doorstep are all kinds of other attractions, including the Llanfair Slate Caverns and numerous opportunities for outdoor activities.
All this and more on a Harlech cottage holiday!
