Snowdonia is an amazing place to visit, and the majesty of this lovely region in North Wales offers so very much for all kinds of traveller – as well as your choice of top quality hotels in the area. The absolutely charming Ty’n Rhos Country House Hotel in Snowdonia is one of the highest quality places to stay in the entire North Wales area, and absolutely wonderful for kicking back and unwinding after a hard (but fun!) day of adventure.
High Octane Attractions in Snowdonia
There’s all manner of attractions in and around the Snowdonia region- such as the amazing Zip World locations which offer white-knuckle, high adrenaline experiences which quite simply are not easily replicated. If hurtling (safely!) down Welsh quarries at high speeds are your idea of a good time, then Zip World is the place for you.
Should you wish your timbers shivered, but Zip World is pushing it a little too far- there’s attractions such as Surf Snowdonia, where you can experience the sheer joy of this feat of modern engineering in the very best style by literally surfing in the Welsh hillsides – in their purpose built (and gigantic- at the size of a few football pitches) inland surf lagoon which comes with its very own water park and a water-based assault course you’ll not have seen anything like before. (except in episodes of Ninja Warrior.)
Both are absolutely excellent days out – and both of these attractions are in excellent proximation to the Ty’n Rhos Country House Hotel in Snowdonia.
Laid Back (But Fun!) Attractions in Snowdonia
Furthermore, there’s a lot of laid-back attractions for those looking for a different kind of pace to their holidays. Take the gorgeous Quay town of Conwy, for instance.
Conwy Quay is one of the best hiking trails in the whole of Wales. It is well known as an excellent way to get a sense of what the landscape was like a century (and more!) ago, while still being up-to-date. Should you have mobility concerns, you’ll be pleased to know that the quay is indeed flat, allowing you to take the walk at your own pace – and enjoy watching the sights and the surroundings, with plenty of stops on the way.
The Conwy Suspension Bridge is also a sight to be seen – while indeed there is a toll house, this bridge which was designed by the legendary Thomas Telford is wonderful. Boasting features and details which haven’t been lost to time, and completely free to pedestrians – this engineering marvel offers photographic opportunities of Conwy Castle which simply can’t be missed.
The Smallest House in Britain is another feat of engineering, though perhaps not as grandiose as Thomas Telford’s Suspension Bridge, the smallest house in Britain measures a meagre 72 inches across, 122 inches high, and is only 120 inches deep.
You might be surprised to learn that it was only turned into a tourist attraction very recently in the 1970s (It was actually a residential property up until then!) and the attraction is now run by the descendants of the last man to have ever lived there.
