The park is located less than a mile from the village of Llanrug where there are shops, a hairdresser, award winning butcher/delicatessen and pubs. You can walk from the park directly through a private gate along the back lane to the village.
The town of Caernarfon is less than three miles away with a myriad of different shops, eating experiences and of course Caernarfon Castle with its spectacular views over the Menai Strait. The Welsh Highland Railway starts its journey from Caernarfon and you can take boat trips from the harbour.
In the opposite direction the beautiful village of Llanberis is located four miles away – you will be in awe of the views of the lake and there is so much to do here. Vsiting the National Slate Museum, going on a trip on a steam train along the lake, seeing the old quarry with its hospital overlooking the village; and of course there’s Snowdon – the highest mountain in England and Wales – this is not to be missed. Whether you walk up or go by train the spectaular views are something else.
Just within this four mile radius there is so much to do. Golf, horse riding, sailing, climbing, walking, cycling, kayaking, sightseeing, shopping, visiting all the beaches and of course some relaxing!
