Relax at Bodelwyddan Castle

This is an ideal base for walkers, and not just Gore-Texed hardcore hikers. The hotel delivers a double whammy with not only Snowdonia’s peaks and lakes close by but also a long, beach-lined coastline. Both are perfect for some gentle exploration. Otherwise, woodland walks, archery, croquet, and more, are within the castle grounds. Or simply book a spa treatment before, or after, a dip in the pool.
