PORTMEIRION FESTIVAL NO 6

Portmeirion Festival No 6 is coming to Snowdonia for the third year running and is set to be the best yet. The festival has made the Daily Mail’s the top 10 UK Festivals as well as being voted Best New Festival and Best Small Festival. It is magical – hard not to be when the location is Portmeirion Village in North Wales. Clough Williams-Ellis created this little piece of the ‘Italian riviera’ in wales during the earlier part of the 1900 – a true visionary. A visit here transports you to a fantasy world of beautiful buildings and gardens. So what is it all about? They say its an intimate, bespoke weekend of music, arts and culture….it doesn’t disappoint. This year sees the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Kellis, Beck and Nineh Cherry take to centre stage and the DJ line up is pretty good too with legendary Laurent Garnier, nordic disco king Todd Terje,…

Snowdonia festivals, fairs and summer events

A lot of the larger events like Wakestock, The National Eisteddfod and the Royal Welsh Show already get a lot of attention and publicity.

Barmouth Walking Festival 2015
 

Barmouth Walking Festival

The Barmouth Walking Festival is fast approaching once again. It’s a great event organized by the Barmouth Publicity Association and runs from the 18th to the 27th of September. For £7.50 you can join a group of like minded enthusiasts for a guided walk along some fantastic routes. The walk leaders have all been carefully selected and can really add to the experience with their local knowledge of the landscape, history ond nature. There are more than 30 walks to choose from.

We’ve had a lot of guests in the past that have really enjoyed the experience despite some sore feet so we highly recommend…
