Happy St. David’s Day! What better way to celebrate the patron saint of Wales than to showcase the amazing sights of this wonderful country. Here are 10 of the best views in Wales.
Our first cabin location in Wales, at Beddgelert in Snowdonia, opens in June this year and we are delighted to finally set foot in this amazing country. Feast your eyes on our gallery, which if we are entirely honest, doesn’t stray too far from glorious Snowdonia, where Beddgelert is situated.
1. Caernarfon Castle
Built by Edward I around the end of the 13th century as a symbol of his strength and power, this mighty fortress is now a World Heritage Site.
2. Cottages at Beddgelert
There are so many fabulous views in Beddgelert, but this little terrace of stone cottages, backed by the rhododendron covered hills, captures the gentle beauty of the village.
Portmeirion is a crazy, colourful, Italianate village dropped at the edge of the grey slate hills of Snowdonia. It has to be seen to be believed!
4. Nant Ffrancon Pass
Climbing steadily from Bethesda in Gwynedd to Llyn Ogwen in Conwy, Nant Ffrancon Pass is a steeply glaciated valley in Snowdonia, rich in history, wildlife and sheer natural beauty.
5. Mount Snowdon summit
No gallery of Wales would be complete without the majestic Mount Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa in Welsh. The tallest mountain in Wales and England at 1085m, it is the jewel in the crown of the mountain range to which it gives its name.
6. The view from Mount Snowdon
If the view to Snowdon is awe-inspiring, the view from Snowdon is simply heart-stopping. Here the Snowdon Mountain Railway makes its way to the summit, with views from the windows that make it one of the best railway journeys in the world.
7. Llanddwyn island, Anglesey
This magical tidal island, steeped in legend, sits at the western entrance to the Menai Straits. The views out to sea are matched only by the views looking back towards Snowdonia.
8. Fairy Glen, Betws y Coed
This delightful woodland gorge, with moss covered rocks, waterfalls and rapids, is close to the pretty village of Betws y Coed on the eastern edge of Snowdonia.
9. Harlech Beach
While many people think of Snowdonia as a mountain region, it also has 200 miles of stunning coastline. This beautiful beach at Harlech is just under 20 miles from the summit of Snowdon!
10. Snowdonia in the snow
Back to the mountains for our final picture, which puts the snow into Snowdonia. Enjoy the pure beauty of this Welsh winter wonderland.
