Local attractions

The countryside has a breath-taking natural beauty, with a diversity of vistas, from dramatic mountains, rolling hilltops and winding river valleys to stunning coastlines.

Such diversity brings a range of leisure opportunities, including walking, fishing and golf, as well as more active sports, or you can simply take in the array of historic sites.

The town itself boats a 13th-century castle, built under the instruction of Edward I.

The beautiful Snowdonia National Park is nearby, along with Portmeirion, the village created in the Italian style by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and the set for the 1960s television show The Prisoner. Portmeirion is also famous for its pottery.
