Caernarfon   |   Porthmadog   |   Beddgelert   |   Portmeirion   |   Halen Mon  

 

DAY ONE - Arrival

We depart from your home with our exclusive home pick-up service and travel to Llandudno, arriving at your hotel with plenty of time to relax and enjoy the town before dinner this evening.

 

DAY TWO – Caernarfon & Porthmadog

This morning we travel to Caernarfon. 

 

Caernarfon is home to Wales’ most famous castle and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mighty Caernarfon Castle commands the lion’s share of attention, but the town’s narrow streets and stylishly redeveloped waterfront also merit a visit.

 

We’ll then travel to the harbour town of Porthmadog, situated on the Glaslyn Estuary, Porthmadog is rich in maritime history, and has a number craft shops and restaurants. The town was named after W.A. Maddocks whose ambitious "Cob" embankment scheme led to the town's name, which translates as "Madog's Port". In times gone by, it was a vital, busy shipping port for the international slate trade, brought down from Blaenau Ffestiniog.

 

Returning to our hotel with time to relax before dinner this evening.

 

DAY THREE –Portmeirion & Beddgelert

This morning we will visit Portmeirion with its architectural heritage, its stunning setting and sub-tropical gardens. Portmeirion was created by Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976 to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it. Recreating an Italian village, with a truly Mediterranean feel Portmeirion was also the backdrop for the 1960s TV series ‘The Prisoner’.

 

Later this afternoon we will head to Beddgelert in the heart of Snowdonia.

 

A short walk south of the village, following the footpath along the banks of the Glaslyn leads to Beddgelert's most famous historical feature; 'Gelert's Grave'.

According to legend, the stone monument in the field marks the resting place of 'Gelert', the faithful hound of the medieval Welsh Prince Llewelyn the Great.

The story, as written on the tombstone reads:

 

"In the 13th century Llewelyn, prince of North Wales, had a palace at Beddgelert. One day he went hunting without Gelert, ‘The Faithful Hound’, who was unaccountably absent.

 

On Llewelyn's return the truant, stained, and smeared with blood, joyfully sprang to meet his master. The prince alarmed hastened to find his son, and saw the infant's cot empty, the bedclothes and floor covered with blood.

 

The frantic father plunged his sword into the hound's side, thinking it had killed his heir. The dog's dying yell was answered by a child's cry.

 

Llewelyn searched and discovered his boy unharmed, but nearby lay the body of a mighty wolf which Gelert had slain. The prince filled with remorse is said never to have smiled again. He buried Gelert here".

 

DAY FOUR – Anglesey & Halen Mon

Today we begin with a visit to Halen Mon (The Anglesey Sea Salt Company), where we enjoy a behind the scenes tour where we learn about the history and importance of Sea Salt to the region.

 

After a scenic drive around the coast of Anglesey taking in the breath-taking scenery and pretty villages on our travels, we’ll return to Llandudno this afternoon with time to relax before dinner this evening.
