The North Wales region

Snowdonia, North Wales offers the biggest, boldest mountains in Wales and England and is one of the most ancient and hauntingly beautiful areas in Europe.

Snowdonia welcomes visitors to a breathtaking natural environment, with Snowdonia National Park at its heart and much, much more. People have lived, worked and thrived on this Celtic land for more than 5000 years. Their legacy is a land which will fascinate the visitor with its rich opportunities for adventure, activity and discovery, its fascinating history and its ancient, musical language and culture.

Snowdonia is also close to a magnificent coastline of sandy beaches, spectacular cliffs and glorious estuaries along the west and north coast.


Yr Adain Glyd cottage is perfectly situated to take advantage of all that North Wales has to offer, with the historic town of Caernarfon only 3 miles away. Set within beautiful grounds near the village of Bontnewydd, you will have no shortage of things to do and places to visit as the area has plenty of visitor attractions, castles and museums, along with spectacular mountains, valleys and beaches to explore.

The town of Caernarfon has a superb setting, with the mountains of Snowdonia as a backdrop and wonderful views across the Menai Strait to Anglesey. Dominated by its majestic castle and ancient mediaeval walls, Caernarfon today is a busy market town with one of the highest percentages of Welsh speakers throughout Wales.

Take a tour around Inigo Jones Slate Works, travel to the highest peak in Wales on the Snowdon Mountain Railway and take advantage of the endless opportunities for walking, cycling, hiking, trekking and mountain walking in Eryri (Snowdonia). The Welsh Highand Railway, Electric Mountain in Llanberis, a round of golf on the shore of the Menai Straits and a visit to the beautiful Italianate village of Portmeirion are also guaranteed to inspire.

For younger visitors, Glasfryn Park offers indoor and outdoor activities including karting, bowling and quad biking. Hwylfan Fun Centre, North Wales' largest indoor fun centre is an ideal place for kids to let off steam, and Greenwood Forest Park is a nature-inspired theme park with a people-powered rollercoaster. Over the bridge in Anglesey you have even more attractions including Pili Palas and Anglesey Sea Zoo.
