Criccieth 5 Day Festive - George Iv Hotel
Criccieth must surely enjoy one of the most beautiful locations to be found anywhere. Situated on the coast at the edge of the Snowdonia National Park with all its attractions there is something to do for everybody. Castles, walks, mountains, beaches, scenery, trains, golf, water sports, fishing, plus excellent visitor attractions in abundance. Criccieth has two beaches either side of the Castle, which dominates the town standing high on its rocky perch. The beaches are a mixture of sand and pebble with a rocky area at the far end of the eastern beach exposing rock pools at low tide. There are no amusement arcades or vendors along these beaches so you can enjoy a relaxing time soaking up the sun with only the sounds of the sea.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
