There are few parts of the UK which are as spectacularly beautiful as Gwynedd. Well-known for being home to Mt. Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales, Gwynedd also offers amazing mountain and moorland scenery in addition to sandy beaches and breath-taking coastal vistas. Visitors can benefit from many different holiday experiences in the area, with the sea and mountains usually only an easy drive from one another. This makes exploring the County from a single base straight-forward to achieve and enables everyone in the party to get what they want from the break.

Gwynedd has a rich cultural heritage and is also a bi-lingual county. You will find that public signs are written in both Welsh and English and Welsh is frequently spoken amongst local people. There is plenty of historical interest, including the National Slate Museum at Llanberis (which is also the starting point for the easiest path up Snowdon), the Bleaneau Ffestiniog Railway and Caernarfon Castle. The area offers a fantastic range of outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, rock climbing and water sports. Tuition and equipment is readily available locally, so there’s no reason not to take part.

The main city in Gwynedd is Bangor, which is located on the north coast. Not only does it have all the goods and services you would expect from a cosmopolitan location, it also has a number of excellent restaurants and a good variety of evening entertainment. Beyond Bangor, visitors can find superb dining in a number of attractive village pubs that combine an appealing menu with a relaxing ambience which is utterly engaging. Gwynedd is a county of contrasts and contradictions which gives it unique, irresistible charm. Many visitors who rent a property there come back repeatedly to benefit from what this special part of the world provides.
