Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

Criccieth lies on the South side of the Llyn Peninsula with splendid views over Cardigan Bay. It is home to a medieval castle, built by the Welsh in the mid-thirteenth century but later taken by Edward I who incorporated it into his ring of castles designed to maintain Norman control. It was captured by Owain Glyndwr in the uprising of 1404 and the scorch marks from that battle can still be seen! The castle headland divides the town into two with a pebbly beach to the West and a lovely sheltered mainly sandy beach to the East. Nearby is the village of Llanystumdwy, which boasts a museum devoted to David Lloyd George, the “Welsh Wizard”, whose family once lived in Criccieth. The countryside around Criccieth is breathtaking with fabulous coastal views over Cardigan Bay, awesome mountain scenery in Snowdonia and delightful gardens and castles at every turn.

Itinerary
Day 1 - Outward Travel


Day 2 - Full day to Portmeirion & Porthmadog
The unique village of Portmeirion is set on its own peninsula on the southern shores of Snowdonia. Its dreamlike Italianate quality made it the setting for the famous TV series The Prisoner. There are lovely gardens and fascinating vistas at every turn. We return to the coast at Porthmadog, a harbour town with a long maritime history and arguably Britain’s narrow gauge railway capital with stations on both the Ffestiniog and the Welsh Highland Railways./n

We venture over to the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, where we call at Llanfair PG - the village with the longest name in Britain! We then call at Caernafon, dominated by its imposing Norman Castle and host of attractions to be explored./n
