This suited all our needs, we wanted to explore the Llyn Peninsula to do family history research and travel on the Welsh Highland Railway to Caernarvon, both of which we did in our 4 night stay here as well as local walks. Had we been able to stay longer we would have revisited Snowdon, Portmeirion, and The Ffestiniog railway. Highly recommended.

Its within easy reach of all tourist attractions by car. Highlight of our trip was the zip wire ride at Penrhyn Quarry absolutely amazing. Our visit wasn't long enough unfortunately but we will definitely be back
