Snowdonia

 

Whether visiting in summer or winter, the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is one of the UK’s most popular destinations for visitors seeking a holiday amidst breathtaking mountain scenery. It’s a perfect destination for self-catering holidays for those looking to get out into the great outdoors, or to mix mountain walking holidays with days on the wide sandy beaches of the North Wales Coast. At Snowdonia’s heart stands Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, a mecca for walkers and, with the option of ascending it by train, the is summit accessible to all. The region’s deep ex-glacial valleys offer clearwater lakes, meandering rivers and fine views. Snowdonia also offers a wealth of historical places of interest. There’s many an ancient castle telling tales of how they “beat the English”, as well as the remains of its rich industrial history from slate quarries to mines.

The Snowdonia National Park offers a wide choice of Gwynedd and Conwy holiday cottages for short breaks and longer holidays in the great outdoors. From luxuriously converted chapels (or capels to use their correct Welsh name) to restored and delightfully cosy old quarrymen’s cottages the choice of self-catering accommodation in Snowdonia means that there’s a choice of cottages, large and small to suit every need. Indeed, there’s much more to a Snowdonia holiday than walking and climbing its crags, with many family-friendly attractions and locations to fill a holiday in this mountainous corner of North Wales.
