With breathtaking views of the neighbouring peaks, ancient woodlands and moorlands, down to the wooded valleys, still lakes and rushing rivers leading to a stunning coastline.

The shoreline varies from the gentle Victorian style seaside beach of Llandudno to the rocky crags at South stack in Holyhead, the Italianate village of Portmeirion to the bustling University City of Bangor. There are excellent water pursuits in the Menai Strait and the National Watersports Centre at Plas Menai, as well as white water rafting.

There are an incredible range of outdoor pursuits such as climbing, walking, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, golfing, fishing and bird watching in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Special Areas for Conservation and Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

But equally North Wales is home to some of the National Trust's greatest treasures including Penrhyn castle, Plas Newydd and Bodnant Gardens; World Heritage Sites of Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech; and probably the greatest density of preserved railway including the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway .

Tyddyn Sydney Bach is located in the secluded grounds of a larger cottage in the village of Treborth, just on the outskirts of the University City of Bangor, between the internationally famous Britannia and Menai Bridges crossing to Anglesey. Treborth is as old as the Faenol Estate, which dates from Tudor times.

Treborth means a homestead and a ferry and was probably associated with one of the many ferries crossing the Straits. In the 19th century it became the site of one of the greatest works of engineering of the railway age and home to the hundreds of workers and their families.

Five minutes walk from Tyddyn Sydney Bach takes you to one of the Britannia Bridge Lions and a little further on to some of the last relics of the original tubular bridge and its construction. Five minutes walk in the other direction takes you to the Treborth driving range and 9 hole golf course
