From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Situated on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.More

This is the 2nd year we have stayed at CEFN COCH ISAF. Perfect for just the 2 of us and a perfect base for getting around Snowdonia and North Wales. Small but perfectly formed.
