Wales at its most mystical and magical
Discover the best North Wales attractions
Cefn Coed Cottages is at the cusp and edge of Wales’s most idealistic of locations being the The Llyn Peninsula and Snowdonia. Mountains, forests, valleys and the sea – it has to be Snowdonia! No other park has such a magical mix of craggy mountains and sandy beaches around it. In a single day you can hike a peak, sunbathe on a beach, and lose yourself in quiet country lanes between the two. And yet, Snowdonia is even more than this…Explore castles built by Welsh princes and English invaders. Discover hidden churches, forest mines and fascinating heritage. Get the adrenaline pumping with rock climbing or gorge walking. Mountain bikers can test their skills on Snowdonia’s world-famous Marin Trail, or the technical rollercoaster routes of Coed-y-Brenin. Want to be swept off your feet? Then “fly” along Europe’s longest and fastest zip wire, high above a huge slate quarry. Or plunge from a 100ft tree on a pulley the army uses for parachute training. If it’s raining, so what? Don a helmet and adventure underground. Tour Llechwedd Slate or Sygun Copper mines, and listen to incredible stories at King Arthur’s Labyrinth.
. If the sun is shining then head down the Llyn : beaches come in all flavours – small sandy coves or wide surfing expanses, some with dunes, others with cliffs. The Llyn’s volcanic hills, undulating countryside and coastal paths – including an ancient pilgrim’s route – make for a battered map of walking options. Discover the Llyn Peninsula's vast walls of a hilltop iron-age fort or stumble upon ancient springs and pretty churches.Don’t forget to make time to visit the historic towns of Conwy and Caernarfon, and the picturebook mountain villages of Betws-y-Coed and Beddgelert. Enjoy authentic Welsh food at country pubs, rustic cafes or award-winning restaurants. Want to know even more about the Lleyn and Snowdonia? Then come and visit!
