Places to stay in Snowdonia

Snowdonia National Park is home to many of the biggest mountains in England and Wales, and is certainly not limited to a simple hike to the top of Mount Snowdon. This phenomenally beautiful region of Britain also boasts beaches, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and even nostalgic railways, while stunning architecture comes in the form of gorgeous villages and dramatic castles.

If you'd rather get off your feet, you can instead trek the hills on horseback, or rely on your arms to get you through the rapids at the National White Water Centre. You can even head underground to find out all about the history of copper mining at Sygun, highlighting the wealth of opportunities for fun in Snowdonia.

Five Free Things To Do In Snowdonia

Scale Snowdon
Whether you're looking for an amble up a great mountain, or a really tough challenge, families of all skillsets can take a trip up one of Snowdon's many paths. Conquering this giant is not just a great achievement - it also offers some of the best views found anywhere in Europe.

Tre'r Ceiri Hillfort
At a whopping 450 metres above sea level on a peak of Yr Eifl on Llŷn Peninsula, this fort is one of the best preserved examples of its kind in Britain. It is accompanied by around 150 stone houses where up to 400 people lived during Roman occupation.

Trefriw Woollen Mills
This insight into Wales' industrial past offers families the chance to see how mills work, as well as the ways that locals continue to make traditional Welsh blankets, tweeds and rugs in the time-honoured fashion.

The Segontium
Visitors can enjoy this Roman fort throughout the year, though during the in-season it also offers a museum that gives a fantastic learning experience about the Romans and their way of life in this area.

Glynllifon offers a great day's worth of entertainment from its location just outside Caernarfon. This mansion has a 700-acre estate with some of the rarest flora and fauna in Wales, and is home to rare and endangered wildlife.
