North Wales is steeped in history and at Aberdunant Hall we're proud to have been apart of it for many years. At the heart of North Wales is the stunning mountain of Snowdonia which sits in over 840 square miles of the National Park. The beauty of this area is outstanding but it's not only the mountains that draw people to the area as we have stunning sandy beaches, great climbing locations, picturesque villages, great harbours and of course the region where Welsh is spoken the most.
Whether you are staying here for just a few nights, 1 week or own a static caravan in North Wales, the area has something for everyone and we wanted to highlight some of our best things you can do whilst on holiday in this great part of the world.
There is so much to do in this small town that you'll be spoilt for choice. Conwy Castle and its Walls are a definite attraction you should visit whilst in the town. You can climb to the top of one of its eight towers and you'll be rewarded with great views of the town before exploring its inner walls to be steeped in history. Whilst in the town you can visit the smallest house in Britain, Bodnant Gardens, the RSPB Conwy Nature Reserve and then visit the Albion Ale House that offers local beers and lager.
This island offers amazing opportunities for explore beautiful scenery, great activities and a warm welcome from the locals. Anglesey is easily accessible from Aberdunant Hall by car where you can visit some of the great programme of activities it offers such as local food, culture, music and the great outdoors. It's also famous for having a train station with the longest place name in Europe: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
North Wales is surrounded by natural beauty and throughout its history many have taken to gardening within it. if you enjoy landscaped lawns and exotic plants then the number of gardens you can explore is amazing. Bodnant Garden in Conwy, Plas Newydd on Anglesey, Plas Tan y Bwlch (with it's Japanese garden) and Plas yn Rhiw are just a few that we highly recommend you visit.
You can take the Ffestiniog Railway to Minffordd Station or drive to this amazing village set right on the Llyn Peninsula. If you're old enough to remember the 1960's film, The Prisoner, then Portmeirion is the perfect place to be taken back to the scenes of the great film. This is a beautiful place to spend the afternoon, enjoy a coffee and look at the Italian architecture.
