Snowdonia and The Llŷn Peninsula Guide


No matter what you want from your holiday, the Snowdonia and Llŷn Peninsula area is guaranteed to be the best place to visit! Widely known as the activity capital of the UK, the area offers walking, cycling, mountain biking, water sports, climbing, coasteering and much, much more.

Including its coastline, 62 square miles of the Llŷn Peninsula has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With the Irish Sea on one side and Cardigan Bay on the other, the countryside is truly unspoilt. This can be seen all along the Peninsula with the dramatic rural scenery and even the traditional stone walls separating the fields show the areas traditional side.

In 2015 the Snowdonia National Park (which covers an extraordinary 823 square miles) was awarded International Dark Sky Reserve status and joins the Brecon Beacons in South Wales as one of only 10 such reserves in the world.

With so much to do, have a weeks break in one of our self-catering cottages to get away from the stresses of life, and experience Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsula for yourself.
