The North Wales region
North Wales is famed for its mountains, beaches and castles.
Aberdwr is just 30 minutes drive from the heart of Snowdonia. Everyone should go to the top of Snowdon at least once, but for something more interesting try one of the Glyders, or for young children take a picnic to Aber Falls or up the Rivals.
Anglesey has miles of sandy beaches. Take a walk along Newborough beach to Llanddwyn Island, wander over the sands of Red Wharf Bay or try any section of the Anglesey Coastal Path.
Edward I's castles at Beaumaris, Caernarvon and Conway should not be missed. Two of the National Trust's most popular properties, Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd, are nearby. Further afield you will find Portmerion and plenty more castles.
Keen gardeners should head to Bodnant Gardens, Crug Farm Nursery, Bodysgallen Hall or the local garden of Plas Cadnant.
Sailors and would-be sailors can sign up for courses at Plas Menai, National Sailing School.
If the weather is bad there is still plenty to do. Take in a local climbing wall, go under the mountains and visit a slate mine, go bodysurfing on one of the beaches or visit one of those castles.
100 yds along the beach you will find the local pub, The Gazelle. Grab a drink while the children go crabbing off the jetty.
Head to picturesque Beamaris for local shops and restaurants including the award winning Ye Olde Bulls Head.
Visit the RNLI station and take a boat trip around Puffin Island.
For general grocery shopping there is a Waitrose in Menai Bridge and a Tesco in Bangor. But don't miss the fine local produce including beef, cheese, mussels and lobsters (we have a pan big enough to cook them).
Local sporting centres include:
Plas Menai National Sailing Centre 15 minutes.
Tal y Foel Riding School 25 minutes
Baron Hill Golf Club 10 minutes
