A Long Weekend In North Wales

At the end of October/beginning of November, I spent 4 days in North Wales with 18 other family members. We rented a house in Criccieth for a few days and explored the area. We visited Betws-Y-Coed, Caernarfon Castle and we did a quick visit to the longest named place in the world Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch just for a picture of the sign.

Ive never spent a long amount of time in North Wales before so it was really nice to send a few days there. Its so beautiful up there and the views are amazing! I will be going back next year hopefully for another family getaway with the whole gang.

Our first stop was en route to Criccieth. We stopped for lunch in Betws-Y-Coed. Its a beautiful little town and it was so pretty will all of the autumn leaves falling.

Criccieth is a pretty Welsh seaside town in North Wales. We stayed on the seafront in a beautiful townhouse. We spend an afternoon exploring the town and of course we made a pit stop to the first Cadwaladers for a lovely vegan ice cream and a sit down to warm up.

We also spent another afternoon walking around Caernarfon. We didn't stay for too long because it was bloody freezing and I couldn't stay our for long. Caernarfon Castle is so pretty but we didn't pay to go in again because I wasn't up to staying out for much longer.

We drove though Beddgelert and the views up on the back roads up there were stunning. The lakes were beautiful and I couldn't believe we were driving through Wales and not Canada!

A couple of family members went on the zip wire in Penrhyn Quarry which is the fasted zip wire in the world and the longest zip wire in Europe. Honestly you wouldn't be able to drag me onto it. Its so high up but it looks so amazing. They said the views up there wear amazing and they would all do it again.

Those are all the photos I have from out trip. If you ever get the chance to visit North Wales I would highlight recommend it. It was lovely to go on a family holiday without leaving the country. I can't wait to visit again.
