Many tourists come to Wales to visit the well-known landmark, Snowdon. The peak of Snowdon is the highest point in the British Isles, not including Scotland. The mountain itself is located within the Snowdonia Park Range, which is host to various mountains and adventurous walks, a great place for a hiking fan to visit on holiday. The mountain is visited by so many different people; it has even been described as “the busiest mountain in Britain.” It has also been designated as a national nature reserve due to its rare flora and fauna.
Snowdon was formed in the Ordovician period, between 488.3 to 443.7 million years ago. It was produced by volcanoes, and the mountain’s massif has been sculpted by glaciations giving Snowdon that pyramidal peak.
The peak of the mountain gives visitors some of the best views in Britain, and these views can be reached in various ways. For those who enjoy hiking up steep mountains, adventuring over cliffs and claiming their fame as they reach the top, the footpath is recommended. It doesn’t take a great deal of time and some of the sights on the way up are not to be missed. For anyone who doesn’t enjoy walking or wants to arrive at the top without effort, there is a train ride that starts in Llanberis, a small village at the foot of Snowdon, and stops at the summit of Snowdon.
There are many places for visitors to stay in the area of Snowdonia. There is accommodation based in all the surrounding villages such as Betws-y-coed, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Caernarfon etc. Each place of accommodation gives the visitor the chance to truly see Wales and be closer to their favoured attractions. The different accommodation available are each perfect in their own way, whether it’s a quiet family holiday you want or a busy weekend of adventuring and tackling mountains, each different place offers its own service.
Many visitors to Snowdonia tend to come back year after year and it is for this reason that many people choose Snowdonia in North Wales as the perfect place for a holiday home. Buying a holiday home in Snowdonia is perfect for those that like to get away to totally different and rural environments and be at one with nature, especially for those that spend most of their time in busy cities or towns and crave the outdoor life. Owning your own holiday home gives you the opportunity to come and go as often as you like and stay for as long as you like without having to worry about availability, check in and checkout times etc. You also have the option to let your holiday home during certain periods so that you can make a second income.
