: Morfa Bychan
Red Dragon Holidays is located in the foot of Snowdon just 300 metres from the start of the Watkin Path footpath to the summit. We are 2 miles from the pretty village of Beddgelert, which has 4 pubs, post office, convenience store, gifts shops, pizza restaurant and ice cream parlour. The harbour town of Porthmadog is 9 miles away where there is a Tesco and 3 petrol stations. Llanberris, a 15 minute drive is the place to catch the train up Snowdon for those not wishing to attempt the walk. The sandy beach of Morfa Bychan is a 20 minutes drive away, the beaches of the Llyn Penisula are within easy reach. Caernarfon with its historic castle, Blaenau Ffestiniiog with its slate mines, the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railway are all close by.
Golf: Porthmadog Golf Club
The club is situated only a mile or so from Clough Williams Ellis' world-famous Italianate village at Portmeirion where TV series 'The Prisoner' was filmed - and Porthmadog's intriguing mixture of heath land and links land can be just as captivating.
Created at the turn of the century by James Braid, the genius course designer of his day, the course has two distinct halves. The front nine are away from the coast and although the soil is sandy the terrain is more accurately described as heathland. But it is none the worse for that, especially with the presence of water making itself felt on five of the holes.
The back nine head for the sea, and some beautiful scenery, and the course is transformed into pure links that have been likened to a miniature Troon. Certainly, there's a lot to the locals' claims that these are the most natural nine holes in Wales. None come tougher or more fascinating than the 14th.
Ski: There is Dry Ski slope ski-ing at Play Y Brenin just 8 miles away in Capel Curig
