Fantastic weekend away in Bay View

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a very wet and windy weekend in Criccieth but instantly felt at home in Bayview.

The house was I well equipped that I had serious kitchen envy! Everything I could think of was there. The layout was fantastic and meant that us adults could socialise whilst keeping an eye on the kids in the snug TV / games room.

The games / books etc were also a welcome addition, as was wifi.

Bedrooms were fabulous and very comfy. The views were amazing. Really recommend this property, and the neighbouring house also, as we were part of a large group staying in both houses.

Further afield Black Rock Sands is located approximately four miles west. In addition Harlech, Abersoch, Nefyn and Pwllheli beaches are only a short drive away.

The Snowdonia National Park begins a mere 5 miles away and is a magnificent playground for those who love walking, mountain climbing or just scenery watching.

The Park covers 823 square miles of diverse landscapes. As well as being the largest National Park in Wales, Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Beddgelert (11 miles).

Snowdonia is renowned for being a very special place for walkers with mountain peaks, lakes, forests, rivers and coastal areas.

Portmeirion is a popular tourist village located just outside of Porthmadog, approximately 8 miles from Bay View. It is Wales' 3rd largest visitor attraction attracting 250, 000 visitors in 2009.

Portmeirion was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, which is now is now acknowledged as a unique architectural work of art. The village is now owned by a charitable trust.

The village stands on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay. It is surrounded by 145 acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. The village has always been run as a hotel, which uses the majority of the buildings as hotel rooms, together with shops, a cafe, tea-room, and restaurant.

Portmeirion has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in the 1960s television show The Prisoner. The show became a cult classic, and fans continue to visit Portmeirion, which hosts annual Prisoner fan conventions.

The popular harbour town of Porthmadog is located 5 miles away. Porthmadog is rich in maritime history and in times gone by, it was a vital, busy shipping port for the international slate trade, brought down from Blaenau Ffestiniog. Both the Welsh Highland Railway and Ffestiniog Railway can be boarded at Porthmadog.

Further afield are the attractive towns of Beddgelert, Harlech, Pwllheli, Nefyn and Abersoch.
