Snowdon


Attractions

There is a wealth of leisure and cultural pursuits within easy reach of the farmhouse. The historic town of Caernarfon, famous for it’s unique Normandy Castle, standing majestically on the banks of the River Seiont, and where Prince of Wales was invested in 1969, is only a few minutes away by car.

For the person interested in history, the Roman Fort of Segontium and it’s accompanying museum on the other side of the town is well worth a visit. Within walking distance of the farmhouse there is the Foryd Nature Reserve on the Aberfore-shore where the old Llanfaglan Church can be found, this is one of the oldest churches in Wales.

For those wishing to partake in outdoor pursuits, there is an eighteen-hole golf course along the Aberfore-shore road in Llanfaglan. Also within close proximity, there is the well-equipped leisure centre, with indoor tennis courts and swimming pool.

For those wishing to partake in a more challenging past-time, ‘Plas Menai’ recreational centre is only a short distance away and provides a wide range of pursuits including Sailing, Wind Surfing, Rock Climbing etc.

The summit of Snowdon is easily reached by various paths. The walk will take approximately two and a half hours each way (leisurely) For the not so energetic and children, the Snowdon Mountain Railway is a wonderful and exciting way to reach the roof of Wales – journey time approximately one hour – depending on weather. Mount Snowdon can be seen from the farmhouse.
