It is said that Snowdonia is Wales' most dramatic region. This is possibly emphasised all the more by Snowdon, the highest summit south of Scotland and a one-time hiding place in 1277 for the last true Prince of Wales, Llewelyn ap Gruffydd, as he struggled with his final battle with Edward I.

The famous Snowdonia National Park stretches from Conwy in the north of Wales to Aberdyfi in the south. It includes several well-known towns, many mountain peaks, extremely old wooded valleys, rivers and ancient fortresses. It was designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty back in 1951, and at some 838 square miles, it is the second largest National Park in England and Wales and the second oldest to acquire National Park status. It is certainly acknowledged as having some of the most fantastic scenery in Wales.

Standing at the mouth of the Seiont river, the imposing and quite magnificent Caernarfon Castle is possibly the most famous castle in Wales. It stands guard over the narrow streets of the busy yet scenic and historic market town of Caernarfon. A great day's exploring is available to visitors to this castle, with walks along the walls, exhibitions and the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, Wales's oldest regiment all to see. Of course many people will remember the castle as the setting for the Investiture of Prince Charles as the Prince of Wales back in 1969.

However, Caernarfon is not just all about its great castle. There's a lovely harbour complete with art gallery and theatre. And for those in need of serious retail therapy during their holiday, there are plenty of shops brimming with traditional and locally-made products, not to mention a great selection of restaurants, caf├ęs and inns all serving wholesome, traditional food. And the new waterside Doc Fictoria, home to the new Celtica Retail Centre, is a true shopping experience.

You'll also find the Welsh Highland Railway and Menai Strait Pleasure Cruises both offering magnificent views of the castle, the Snowdon mountain region and the Isle of Anglesey. More active leisure pursuits include Redline Indoor Karting, the Hwylfan Fun Centre and the Plas Menai National Watersports Centre. There's also the Roman fort of Segontium overlooking the town. With so much to see and do, the region is a good choice for a trip - take a look at our holiday cottages in Snowdonia today.

Llandudno, the classy destination of choice for Victorians, has a mile-long seafront of grand hotels and guesthouses, along with apartments on the seafront from where you can watch the waves. Walkers might head for holiday cottages near the magnificent limestone headland of the Great Orme while staying on the Llyn Peninsular, which makes an ideal family holiday where children will love playing on the gorgeous sandy beaches. Whether you're renting for a family or for a romantic break, there'll be something that suits your needs.
