About this holiday
Based in the coastal town of Caernarfon near to the picturesque Menai Strait, our historic hotel is just a 15 minute drive to Snowdonia National Park.
Anglesey & Llanddwyn
Our walk today takes us across the Menai Suspension Bridge on to the Island of Anglesey. Walking over the vast dunes of Newborough National Nature Reserve and onto the magnificent beach. Take in some of the best views of the Snowdonia range and out across Caernarfon Bay. We continue on to the tiny island of Llanddwyn where celtic crosses, 13th century ruins and picturesque cottages are a photographers dream. Our return this afternoon takes us through forest so keep a look out for the elusive red squirrel.
Snowdonia National Park
We set off from the mountain village of Capel Curig through pockets of sessile oak woodland onto the open moorland . The views on a clear day of the Snowdon Horseshoe are magnificent. A slow, but easy ascent along this ancient path brings us to the top of the pass looking down into the Crafnant valley and the shimmering LLyn Crafnant. Our descent to the Conwy valley takes us past the long since closed lead workings, heathery hill tops and historic monuments to legendary figures. Time permitting, we will make a visit to the medieval church, where Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Wales, worshipped in the 13th Century.
