Spring is here, the hour has gone forward, and the evenings are lighter for longer! We’ve got some great ideas for beautiful sunset walks in North Wales
Things to do in Harlech
Harlech is a charming historic Welsh coastal town on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. It is a place of guts, quirk, and rather epic, timeless beauty. Sitting proud on a hillside looking out to sea, Harlech is flanked by the majestic mountains of Snowdonia to the east, with Cardigan Bay and the Irish Sea to the west.

But most of them I would suggest are best suited for people who have done some walking before. 10 miles through the Rhinog Mountains is not for everybody. We’ve had a lot of guests in the past that have really enjoyed the experience despite some sore feet so we highly recommend…
