Places to stay in Snowdonia

Snowdonia National Park boasts the biggest mountains in England and Wales, but hiking up Snowdon is not the only thing to do in this breathtakingly beautiful area. Beaches, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nostalgic railways await visitors, while history lovers can lose themselves in the Slate Museum or explore the wealth of castles in the nearby area.

Enjoy horseriding in the foothills of Snowdonia, visit the National White Water Centre for thrills and spills or go underground to find out all about the history of the Sygun Copper Mine; the Snowdonia area really has something for everyone.

Five Free Things To Do In Snowdonia

Tre'r Ceiri Hillfort
Standing 450 metres above sea level on a peak of Yr Eifl on Llyn Peninsula, this hillfort is one of the best preserved in Britain. See over 150 stone houses where as many as 400 inhabitants would have lived during the Romano-British period for a chance to truly imagine the settlement during the Roman army's occupation of north-western Wales.

Trefriw Woollen Mills
Glimpse into Wales' industrial past and see just how the mills work – you'll be surprised! See the traditional Welsh blankets, tweeds and rugs being made, as you learn about the time-honoured process of their manufacture.

The Segontium
This Roman Fort is open all year round, but in season the experience is enhanced by a museum providing information on the history that surrounds the Segontium.

Scale Snowdon
No list of activities would be complete without a trip up Snowdon. Whether you choose an easy walk or a tough challenge, the feeling you'll get from conquering this giant will stay with you for a long time.

Just outside Caernarfon, Glynllifon is the perfect place to spend a day. See the stunning mansion and explore the 700-acre estate where you can see some of the rarest flora and fauna in Wales. This Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) is also home to rare and endangered wildlife, so it's a must-visit.
