Gwynedd holiday cottages

Gwynedd is a treasure trove of fascinating destinations for holidays to suit all tastes. Castles, beaches and mountains, itís got everything for a short break, or for longer family holidays. A romantic break in the gorgeous town of Caernarfon with its famous castle is second to none. Wales' most famous castle and scene of the investiture of Charles, Prince of Wales, Caernarfon Castle is truly impressive. Terrific for a day out with friends and family, this amazing 13th century castle is one of the most well known buildings in Wales. For a really exciting day trip, the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways are a must. Trains start at Caernarfon Castle and one of them, Palmerston is the world's oldest steam engine and is still serving passengers today. The trains pass through Aberglaslyn Pass which was voted the most beautiful spot in the UK by the National Trust, before heading down from the Snowdon foothills to Porthmadog. Don't pass up the chance to sample the superb beaches at Harlech, presided over by the magnificent castle, or Criccieth, Pwllheli and Abersoch on the Lleyn peninsula.
