Top 5 Holiday Cottages in Criccieth
Looking for a place to stay in a beautiful seaside village in Wales? Let us introduce you to our favourite holiday cottages in Criccieth. This beautiful little Welsh coastal village seemingly has it all: ocean rollers, mountain views and an imposing medieval castle to watch over it all. Criccieth lies at the gateway to the Llŷn Peninsula, on the shores of Cardigan Bay. On the original Victorian steam train line, it has long been a destination for families looking to get away from it all. It’s an easy-living town that has retained all of its old school charm. Think rock pooling, castle ramparts and rum and raisin ice cream (or whatever is your favourite 😊). You’ll find traditional Welsh tearooms, plenty of great places to eat out, independent shops and some wonderfully browsable galleries and antiques. There’s even a traditional Welsh clog maker who still has his workshop in the town. Our holiday cottages in Criccieth…

Dominic Clare - Wood Sculptor in Snowdonia, North Wales
[youtube]http://youtu.be/sblqkI18AQo[/youtube] I had the pleasure of spending some time with Dominic Clare last month, a fantastic local sculptor based here in Snowdonia, North Wales. A narrow single track road just north of Llanfrothen leads me winding through a wood, heavy with autumn leaves. Eventually, the wayward sculpture of the trees and branches gently give way to more obedient outlines. These new shapes are difficult to spot at first. Hidden among the net curtain of natures foliage. They tread a gentle path between natural organic beauty and the more controlled hand of man. Dominic is quiet and un assuming. Perhaps a little scruffy around the edges. I like him immediately. We chat in his workshop surrounded by oft-handled tools and intriguing figures, the air full of the smell of sawdust. Eventually we move outside. He sets to work on his latest project, a set of benches destined for a National Trust project. Later on, armed with a…
