About the neighborhood
Criccieth, the Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia...really has got it all...castle, sea, sand, mountains, wonderful ice cream, quaint shops and lovely pubs. It is also a fabulous central base for touring the Llyn Peninsular and all it has to offer or the awesome Snowdonia National Park.
Golf courses are in every direction. New exciting attractions to add to the old favourites are literally everywhere and some of the best walks in the country are right here.
A truly inspiring infrastructure of local food producers, micro breweries in abundance and vineyards all on the doorstep gives all Foodies and Beer Buffs a real 'Sense of Place'. You might just think you are in Heaven! Croeso.....
Getting around
Local buses and the Cambrian Coast Railway Line provide easy access to both towns either side of us, Pwllheli and Porthmadog.
The Railway terminates at Pwllheli but travel south to Barmouth or Aberdyfi for a relaxing day out.
