Re-charge your batteries at the coast, or enjoy some vigorous
exercise in the mountains. Just two of the many reasons to book a
Snowdonia holiday cottage.
The Snowdonia National Park covers most of the region and is an
absolute feast for the eyes - a dazzling showcase of rugged
mountains, magnificent estuaries and breathtaking coastline.
Against this backdrop of outstanding natural beauty, you'll
discover charming towns and sleepy villages; imposing, historic
castles (most notably, Harlech, Conwy and Caernarfon); plus a
wealth of attractions for every age and taste.
Enjoy the 'great outdoors', with a huge range of
adventure sports from scaling Mount Snowdon and dare-devil mountain
bike trails in Coed Y Brenin, to riding the rapids at the National
Whitewater Centre. Or opt for something gentler like a spot of
sailing on Bala Lake, a relaxing walk along the Mawddach Trail, or
a round of golf on Harlech's celebrated seaside links course.
Shop 'til you drop in Llandudno. Explore the medieval
streets of Conwy, the redeveloped dock area of Caernarfon, the
tranquil backwaters of Betws-y-Coed. Stroll hand-in-hand through
the gardens of Portmeirion. Or chug along by steam aboard one of
Snowdonia's mountain railways.
Other places to visit include the Roman Museum of Segontium,
Swallow Falls, the National Slate Museum, Electric Mountain,
Llandudno Ski & Snowboard Centre, Bodnant Gardens; as well as a
number of RSPB nature reserves and all kinds of family attractions.
So, whether you're adrenalin junkies or sun-seeking
beachcombers; a couple, a family or a group of friends; a Snowdonia
cottage holiday is serious food for thought.
