Beautiful Surroundings

Harlech is in the West of Snowdonia National Park, with beautiful scenery all around. The park looks up to the Welsh mountains, including Snowdon – which particularly looks picturesque during sunrise or when the peaks are snow coated. Those who enjoy outdoor adventures, there are plenty of walking and cycling tracks in the area, including the Roman Step Walk. As well as nearby centres that offer water sports and other outdoor pursuits. For those that enjoy the more relaxed hobby, Royal St David’s Golf Course is directly opposite the park and owners benefit from a discounted membership. Take a ride on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Steam Railway which runs through 40 miles of the wonderful Snowdonia National Park, allowing you to experience the superb scenery in comfort.
