Holiday cottages in outstanding Welsh countryside

Things to do in the local area.

North Wales is well known for its spectacular mountains and hills from the Snowdonian (including Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales) Rhinog and Cadair Idris mountains in the west, the central Aran and Arenig ranges and the Berwyn and Clwydian mountain ranges in the east. Between these hills and mountain are incredible rushing rivers and streams and stunning valleys such as the Vale of Clwyd and Dee Estuary and the natural lake of Llyn Tegid at Bala (largest natural lake in Wales) and the lakes of Llyn Brenig, Celyn and Trawsfynydd.

There's fishing at Derwen Fisheries (1/2 mile from the cottages), Brenig Lake, and a free pass to fish a mile of the Upper Dee (number of days depend on the length of the guest' stay)

A haven for artists wanting a peaceful and tranquil location to paint.

The coast of North Wales is famed for its sandy beaches, sand dunes systems, fens and wildlife conservation. North Wales has the Snowdonia National Park, three Areas of Outstanding Beauty: Anglesey, Clwydian Range and Lleyn Peninsula and 30 National Nature Reserves. It is also home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites: The Pontcysyllyte Aqueduct and Canal and collectively the Edwardian castles and town walls at Caernarfon, Beaumaris, Conwy and Harlech. In addition to these castles there are other mediaeval castles in Criccieth, Dolbadarn, and Dolwyddelan. North Wales also shares with Mid Wales the distinction of hosting the only UNESCO Biosphere reserve in Wales: The Dyfi Biosphere.

Bangor and St Asaph are the two cities in North Wales with the only cathedrals in North Wales. The largest town in North Wales is Wrexham with other major towns such as Llandudno and Pwllelli located on the coast. North Wales has many medieval and historical market towns and villages throughout the region.
