The North Wales region
Criccieth is a great location on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park (which includes Snowden and the Snowden mountain Railway) and yet is close to excellent beaches and with great views across the bay to Harlech.
Trains still run to Criccieth station up a beautiful coastal route and there are exceptional walks in the area, many National Trust properties, and the island of Anglesey is not far away.
The village and beautiful gardens of Portmeirion (where the Television series The Prisoner was based) are close by and there's a busy seaside resort in Porthmadog nearby where you catch a steam train on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways.
In short Criccieth is a relaxing seaside resort surrounded by natural beauty with easy access to a wide selection of activities from mountains to beaches and from steam engines to captivating gardens.
The property is situated on Y Maas a road at the top of the village Green with views to Criccieth Castle and sea views across to the Harlech hills.
Criccieth high street is close by with a local Spar shop, green grocers , butchers and several excellent restaurants and cafes; including an Indian restaurant and Fish and Chip shops as well as more local fine dining.
The two beaches in Criccieth are within 5-10 minutes walk and there is a wonderful sandy beach which stretches for 2 miles at Black rock sands just around the bay towards Porthmadog, the beach is so big you can drive onto it and park so is popular for water activities and picnics.
