‘The jewel in the crown of Cardigan Bay’ is how some would describe Aberdyf, also known as Aberdovey. Aberdyf is a popular holiday destination for those who stay in other parts of Britain, never mind for holidaymakers from overseas! This is because it’s such a short distance away from anywhere else in Britain, yet it has a beach that makes you forget where you are and has such a relaxed pace of life. The small town only has a population of a few thousand-something and is located within the Snowdonia National Park. What was once a busy working port is now a busy sailing and water sports centre where tourists can enjoy swimming, sailing and kayaking.
Beaumaris Castle is famously known for many things. Firstly, it’s dubbed as the greatest castle that was never built as construction on it was never complete due to lack of funds and supplies. Secondly, the castle was never a target for attacks, despite being built as part of Edward I’s plan to conquer North Wales. And finally, it has a perfect symmetrical layout that is the most ‘technically’ perfect castle in Britain. This castle is classed as a World Heritage Site and is one of the ‘finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe,’ according to UNESCO.
Nant Gwrtheyrn Welsh Language and Heritage Centre
The Welsh language definitely looks and sounds like quite a mouthful, but if you visit Wales, you’re very most likely to hear it or read it. The Nant Gwrtheyrn Welsh Language and Heritage Centre is an excellent place if you’re interested in sharpening up your Welsh or learning more about the Welsh culture. It’s located in a former quarrying village with stunning views across Porth Nefyn.
What was once a prison during the early 1800s, is now a museum which opens its doors to around 30,000 visitors each year. Visiting Beaumaris Gaol is a haunting yet fascinating and unforgettable experience as you discover the harrowing world for Victorian time prisoners. Most of the building remains largely unaltered, with the only original tread wheel in Britain and a gibbet that is still fixed to the outer wall. It’s advised that you should give extra consideration into bringing young children along to the Gaol.
Tucked away at the bottom left of Snowdonia National Park is Dolgoch Falls, a series of three waterfalls that run apart from each other and form part of the Nant Dol-goch, a stream which flows into the River Mathew (or Afon Fathew in Welsh). Dolgoch Falls can be reached on foot from the beaches of Tywyn, just 4-miles away – ideal for a summer-time stroll! The woodlands the falls are situated in is truly an outstanding area of natural Welsh beauty, with caves and tunnels free to explore as well.
We can guarantee that you will never have visited anywhere as charming as Porthdinllaen, a tiny coastal village on the Llŷn Peninsula within Gwynedd. Despite being such a small village with only around two dozen buildings, it’s home to one of the best beach bars in the world, Ty Coch Inn, where you can enjoy a pint or overnight stay. What makes this small village even more special and peaceful is that it’s car-free! Only residents with a car permit are allowed to use cars – visitors must walk across the beach from Morfa Nefyn to reach the village.
