In Snowdonia for a holiday? When it comes to dining out you are spoilt for choice.
When it comes to dining out, there are so many good choices, from little cafés to family friendly pubs serving good food and award winning restaurants. There is something for everyone and every budget.
When it comes to tourist attractions, this part of North Wales is so compact. One minute you are in Beddgelert surrounded with misty coloured mountains, rivers and forests and next you are on a soft sandy beach at Morfa Bychan. Take the steam train at Porthmadog to Caernarfon and sit back and enjoy the awe-inspiring scenery. Caernarfon at night! Walking through the old street with the Castle lit as the backdrop: Beautiful. To my eyes, Snowdonia is as close to a perfect holiday destination as there can be. There is just one thing you need to know: Don’t go in August.
Oh that does bring back happy memories...
'Pant Du' is on the stunning slopes of the Nantlle Valley, a part of North Wales better known for its slate than its grapes. Planted on the south facing slopes of the Nantlle valley, at the foothills of Snowdon. This has clearly been a labour of love. A family run business with a shop and café on site. Spectacular views of the Snowdonia mountain range can be seen to the North East, and panoramic views of the sea to the West, an idyllic location to spend an afternoon, sampling the award winning wines, cider and apple juice, whilst enjoying the natural beauty of Snowdonia.
Well done Porthmadog. Officially the hottest place in the UK. Temperatures in North Wales reached new heights on Sunday, with Porthmadog reaching 27.8°C, according to the Met Office. That makes North Wales hotter than Barcelona, Monaco and Lisbon. Although the Met Office, is being cautious about a super hot summer saying advanced predictions are generally unreliable, others are forecasting this summer will be a cracker.
