We had a lovely afternoon there , great stalls , good entertainment in awesome setting . Only dissapointment was the children in our group didn't get to see Santa ...As there was a shortage of tickets ....hard for a 3 and 5 year old to accept , better planning needed next time.

This is an idyllic place to visit. We actually came and stayed in the hotel and it was amazing to have the village to ourselves once the visitors left for home. Regardless of the time of year there is always something magical about this place. Just stunning.

Learn even a little of the history before you go so that you understand the extraordinary Italianate architecture otherwise you may think it's just odd. But it's fascinating and everywhere you look there is something different. And beautiful location with lovely views.

Thank you for your feedback but alas we can't do much about the changing seasons but Autumn brings its own particular kind of beauty as our 70 acre woodland comes alive with colour. We're now preparing for our Christmas Festival so the village is shimmering with lights. We look forward to seeing you in summer. More

We are a group of local school children who visited Portmeirion. We enjoyed the ice cream shop. The gelato was excellent. There was so many different colours in the village, the buildings are amazing. All the children thoroughly enjoyed playing on the boat outside the hotel. If you want to stay over night there is a luxury hotel with a... More

We obviously visited in November so understood that certain flora & fauna would not be seen! some of the shops etc were closed. Though we decided to take in the views with the walks! We tried to read the map & the wooden signposts, but found them misleading! & ended up doing the coast walk & outer woodland walk &... More

I'm sorry to hear that you became nature's casualty and I'm glad to hear you weren't badly hurt. As you know, November is low season for us and the entry fee reflects this. Most of the shops are open all year round and there is still plenty to see and learn. Sir Clough always wanted the woodlands to have a... More

Visited on a cold November afternoon but it was interesting to visit the place where The Prisoner was filmed back in the 1960s and one shop was full of souvenirs about it which brought back some memories! The buildings were so colourful and so quirky and must be great to stay in as they are available to book for holidays.... More
