Snowdonia Information Pack


My parents are staying for the week and Sunday bought us a beautiful day; blue skies and turquoise sea, it was so clear we could see Criccieth from my sitting room window. As it had been 50 years since they last went there, I decided to spend a day in Criccieth… With my parents! With a little bit of planning, there is plenty to keep you occupied in Criciceth for an afternoon and if it’s one of those hot beach days, then a full day and evening would certainly be on the cards. We parked on the prom where it is £1 for 4 hours; this is perfect as it is in easy walking distance to the beach and cafes. We got there for lunch and as it was such a lovely day, we opted for the Swn Y Mor (Sound of The Sea) Cafe; lots of outside seating, sea views and a good selection of…

Top 5 ice creams in North Wales

Our two girls and I had a fantastic day in Harlech on Sunday and enjoyed sitting on the castle walls eating ice creams whilst watching all the tourists go by. The sun is still out today so I’ve been inspired to write a little article called the Top 5 ice creams in North Wales. No scientific taste tests here unfortunately, just some random recommendations. (Although I do eat a lot of Ice cream, but I’m not sure that makes me an expert.) Cadwaladers Ice Cream The original Cadwaladers Ice Cream palor in Criccieth was a big part of my childhood. I have lots of happy memories of rushing into the shop with my cousins. Buying huge vanilla cones before walking down to the beach and skimming pebbles over the waves with my cousins. They’ve grown much bigger now and have outlets all over North Wales but that first shop in Criccieth which opened in 1927 apparently,…
