The North Wales region
Wales is a place of natural beauty and diversity. The north east of Wales features some traditional seaside towns and spectacular views and is a great place to stay. The West coast has some great coastal walks and lovely sandy beaches to discover. Surfing and dog walking is popular in this area. The north west has highlights including Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey in this magical part of Wales; you will find a break here relaxing or if you fancy going for a climb then it would be adventurous. The south coast of Wales has sandy beaches but also the benefit of access some of Wales' largest cities including the capital Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are full of steep mountain escarpments, waterfalls and spectacular views. In mid Wales you will begin to discover the appeal of the Valleys. And finally, Pembrokeshire has jagged coastlines, secret bays and some of the finest coastal towns line this area and you can see why people return every year to holiday there.
The ruins of Criccieth Castle dominate this small town which has a population of 1,800 and lies between Porthmadog and Pwllheli on the Lleyn peninsula. The Castle is situated on the headland between the two beaches in Criccieth, on a rocky peninsula overlooking Tremadog Bay. It was built by Llywelyn the Great of the kingdom of Gwynedd but it was heavily modified following its capture by the forces of Edward I in the late C13th.
Following the arrival of the Cambrian Coast Railway, the pastimes of the Victorians of sea bathing, hill walking and mountain walking increased in popularity and this coupled with the stunning scenery ensured the prosperity of this beautiful coastal resort. The town is noted for Cadwalader's Ice Cream Parlour which opened in 1927.
