I’m dreaming of a...summer bucket list!
The hustle and bustle of Christmas might very well be in full swing at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t already start looking forward to the lighter mornings, longer evenings and warmer temperatures that summer brings!
We’ve compiled a list of our favourite things to do during the summertime and can’t wait to do once the warmer weather reaches North Wales in the new year - although many of which can still be enjoyed throughout the year!
Exploring the history of Harlech
There’s so much history to be discovered in North Wales, and the town of Harlech is a brilliant place to start. Located within the Snowdonia National Park, this seaside resort is home to a 13th-century castle which has been incredibly well-preserved. Visitors can explore inside of the castle, whilst enjoying fantastic views of the surrounding area.
Stay close by in one of the fabulous Harlech apartments, just moments away from the castle itself!
Enjoying an ice-cream in Criccieth
If there’s one place in particular which brings up plenty of summer memories - it’s certainly Criccieth! In the heart of this much-loved seaside town you will find Cadwaladers, a cafe serving homemade ice-creams in an assortment of flavours (from a recipe still secret to this day!). We can’t wait to stroll along the seafront with a tasty ice cream once summer returns again to North Wales.
Relax and unwind to the sounds of the seaside in Criccieth, we’ve got a lovely choice of holiday cottages!
Mountain walking in Snowdonia
North Wales is an incredibly popular holiday destination for walkers - and with dramatic peaks such as Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Tryfan, it’s very easy to see why. We’re looking forward to getting our walking boots out on clearer, sunnier days and experiencing the breathtaking views that the mountain peaks of Snowdonia can offer!
From quaint, cosy cottages for couples, to larger houses for adventurous groups, we’ve got a variety of Snowdonia cottages to choose from!
Dog walks on Newborough Beach
If we’re completely honest - walking your dog on drizzly mornings and cold evenings can start to feel like a chore during the winter months. We’re already looking forward to sunny walks along Newborough Beach with our four-legged friends, taking in the sights of the sea, the sounds of the waves and the fresh, summer air.
Don’t leave your pooch behind on your next holiday to North Wales - there’s plenty of dog-friendly cottages to choose from!
Scenic strolls along Beaumaris Pier
The pretty seaside town of Beaumaris is a wonderful place to spend a warm, summer's day. This popular town has a fantastic choice of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a scenic pier which offers excellent views out towards the Menai Strait and the Snowdonia mountain ranges - perfect for a relaxing afternoon stroll!
Leave the car on the drive and stay in a holiday cottage in the heart of Beaumaris, everything you need is well within walking distance!
Surfing at Rhosneigr Beach
Summer is a great time to start a new hobby, and with so many brilliant beaches in North Wales, it offers a great opportunity to try a new a watersport! One of our favourite beaches when it comes to surfing (and sailing) is Rhosneigr, on the south-west coast of Anglesey.
With a choice of surfing schools and shops all within the village, it’s the ideal location for beginners and those who already enjoy catching waves on their surfboard!
Enjoy an action-packed holiday by the beach next summer - take a look at our choice of Rhosneigr holiday cottages!
Rockpooling in Rhoscolyn
Whilst it may be the children's firm favourite - rock pooling can be an interesting beach activity for all ages! We’re looking forward to warm summer days on the family-friendly Borth Wen beach in Rhoscolyn, where there’s plenty of opportunity for rockpooling discoveries!
Enjoy the golden beaches and beautiful views of Rhoscolyn from one of our fabulous holiday cottages.
