About Gwynedd

Gwynedd is dramatically beautiful. Rugged, with famous, sky-scraping mountains and a jutting peninsula which alternates rocky headlands with beautiful scoops of beach. Many people come here without realising, just drawn to the challenges and magical scenery of Mount Snowdon and the Snowdonia National Park. Some even enjoy the variety of scaling the highest peak in England and Wales in the morning and resting their feet with a bit of a paddle on a beautiful sandy beach in the afternoon. Our recommendations for the best places to stay in Gwynedd are just as varied in their views. We’ve got some fantastic places to stay within Snowdonia National Park, coastal charmers, rural retreats and some great recommendations for families too.

What we do especially love about Gwynedd, and we’re not alone in this, are the really big spectacular views, so the highlights on our list of the best places to stay in Gwynedd all have fantastic outlooks - even if they’re set within a town or village, for that really needn’t be a barrier in Gwynedd!

Our list of the best places to stay in Gwynedd also favours a welcoming atmosphere and personalised touches. Gwynedd is well known for having a very strong Welsh identity - around 65% of people living in Gwynedd can speak Welsh, which is the largest percentage in Wales. And it’s not just the language, here traditional customs, cuisine and crafts are practiced and promoted, and it really adds to your experience if your hotel or B&B can help give you an introduction to these things.

What Not to Miss

  • Snowdonia National Park

If you’ve never been, and never seen a photo it’s probably not unreasonable to suggest you imagining Snowdonia National Park as being a combination of the Lake District and the Alps? With long, serene lakes, steep waterfalls, plenty of heather and low scrub, and the odd castle and steam railway to put the scale of things into perspective. And all the signage in both English and Welsh - which makes it seem like they’ve added a little bit of Middle Earth into the mix as well.
Walk, hike, climb, cycle, sail, canoe, kayak; watch ospreys, peregrines and buzzards; seek out the rare and protected Snowdon lily, the local salmon-like Gwyniad and red squirrels. As well as being a source of water and slate, this was the natural fortress for the rulers of the region and there are some fantastic true stories to uncover in Snowdonia.
Around 500,000 people summit Snowdon each year. There are a number of routes, the most spectacular being the Crib Goch arête, but, as with all routes, you really have to watch the weather as it’s not uncommon for people to run into difficulties because of a flash change in weather. There are numerous other mountains to climb, but Tryfan is another popular one, looking like a giant, fossilised stegosaurus, and Cadair Idris is very popular too.

  • The Llŷn Peninsula

Greener and more rolling than Snowdonia, the Llŷn Peninsula’s beauty rivals that of its famed neighbour the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, with long stretches of sandy beach, smaller, delightful cove beaches and some fantastically dramatic cliffs, headlands and peaks. The largest beach is Worth Neigwl, between Abersoch and Aberdaron, but Llanbedrog and Nefyn also have larger beaches. And there are numerous smaller, yet still lovely, ones. And if you’re after spectacular views head for Mynydd Penarfynedd. There’s also a rather charming Welsh language and culture centre at Porth y Nant, which until recently as a hamlet you could only access by sea. Llŷn Peninsula is also known for its ancient earthworks. Pwllheli and Porthmadog are good places to start looking for accommodation on the Llŷn Peninsula.

  • Gwynedd’s castles date from the 12th and 13th century when the Welsh resisted the rule of King John and Edward I. The impressive fortress Castell y Bere was the last stronghold of the Welsh Princes, and Dolbadarn and Dolwyddelan are also worth seeing. To see the other side of the fight visit Edward’s Harlech which looks threateningly across Tremadog Bay at the Welsh castle Criccieth.
  • Gwynedd also has some beautiful National Trust properties, including Plas yn Rhiw, just to the east of Aberdaron, and Penrhyn Castle, which is a mock-Norman extravagance built in the 19th century. Just to the east of the castle are The Spinnies, a collection of excellent bird hides where you can frequently see egrets and kingfishers. Parc Glynllifon, a glorious estate close to Caernarfon is also worth a visit, for the amphitheatre and arboretum especially. And while you’re in the vicinity you might want to visit Caernarfon’s World Heritage Listed, 13th century castle, built by Edward I and costing 90% of the crown’s annual income, and now home to the Royal Welsh Fusiliers Museum. After that you might want to visit Caernarfon’s charming old fashioned pubs and museums. Plus, in this part of Wales 85% of local people speak Welsh.
  • If you have children, or you’ve been a child, you might be familiar with the Railway Series of a certain Rev. W Awdry? Well anyone who’s a fan of steam railways will be very happy here, Gwynedd has a number to choose from, including the Talyllyn Railway, which is the inspiration for Skarloey’s narrow-gauge railway, the Snowdon Mountain Railway which climbs 3500 feet up Snowdon on the UK’s only rack-and-pinion railway, and the Ffestiniog Railway, the world’s oldest surfing narrow-gauge railway.
  • For a family fun day-out go to GreenWood Forest Park. Only 3 miles from Caernarfon, it is an outdoor adventure centre beloved by kids: there's an eco-friendly rollercoaster, zip-wire, playbarn and you can do everything from archery to boat-rides.
  • Bangor is the region’s largest city, but it still feels like a relatively small university town. This is where you’ll find the Gwynedd Museum and Art Gallery. Dolgellau is within the Snowdonia National Park, close to Cadair Idris, and an important centre for traditional Welsh music; and Portmeirion is pretty.

Travel Information

  • Cardiff Airport is directly linked to around 50 destinations, including all the main airline hubs, but it’s also a fairly short distance from Manchester airport and Liverpool airport, which are just across the border, and Heathrow, which is only three hours by road. Alternatively there are good rail links to many Welsh destinations from continental Europe and the rest of the UK, and you can cross to and from Ireland on the ferry, which takes under two hours from Dublin.
  • If you want to hire a car - which we highly recommend if you’re staying in Wales - we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
  • Spring is beautiful in Wales. If you enjoy a stroll, be it around a castle grounds, up a mountain or along a rocky peninsula, then the mild, dry weather of spring is a good time for it. Plus there are lambs and birdsong. Summer in Wales is also appealing, what with the golden beaches looking almost as good as the Med. under the summer sun. Autumn is great for walkers, with the colours adding to Wales’s dramatic views and welcoming pub lunches to come in for. Plus the castles are at their most moody and dramatic looking too. In winter you might need to walk more briskly, or up higher mountains, to keep you warm, but there’s always a welcoming fire burning somewhere and plenty of colourful Christmassy events to keep you in good cheer.
