The beautiful unspoilt seaside town of Cricceth, known as “The Pearl of Wales On the Shores of Snowdonia”, provides the perfect base for exploring the northwest of Wales. The Padarn Country Park is host to two fascinating attractions and Caernarfon Castle is, architecturally, one of the most impressive of all of the castles in Wales.

 

Hotel: Lion Hotel, Cricceth (4 nights D, B&B)

Overlooking the village green and the bay this family run hotel enjoys a well-earned reputation for a traditional warm welcome and personal service. As you would expect from

a period building the 46 bedrooms, which come equipped with TV, hairdryer and tea/ coffee making facilities, are very different and individual. There is a lift in the main building

(some guests may be accommodated in the adjacent Castle View Cottage – no lift).

Day 1

We leave Belfast for the Stena Line crossing to Holyhead. On arrival in Wales we travel directly to our hotel where we have a late dinner.

Day 2

After a leisurely breakfast we skirt the Snowdonia National Park to Padarn Country Park and ride the Llanberis Lake Railway, a 60min narrow-gauge steam train journey. This is followed with a visit to the National Slate Mine (uneven surfaces) to travel into the past of an industry and a way of life that has chiselled itself into the very being of Wales.

Day 3

This morning we visit Portmeirion, a unique village on the shore, built by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis as a ‘tribute to the Mediterranean’. The afternoon is spent in Porthmadog, a busy harbour town with a good range of shops and attractions.

Day 4

Today it is Caernarfon Castle, a brute of a fortress with a pumped-up appearance which is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating! Our return journey in the afternoon is along part of the scenic drive of the Llyn Peninsula. Time permitting, we will stop in Pwllheli before reaching Cricceth.

Day 5

Time to return home, leaving mainland Wales for the Isle of Anglesey to catch the Stena Line ferry from Holyhead to Dublin.
