Snowdonia Cottages

Popular places to visit in Snowdonia

Snowdonia has a wealth of attractions to see and activities to take part in. Make sure the following are on your ‘To Visit’ list!

  • Smallest House in Britain. Located on the quay in Conwy, this house really is a marvel to see. If you don’t notice it due to its colouring (its bright red), then the lady standing outside in a traditional welsh costume will surely catch your eye. With a height of only 122 inches and a width of 72 inches, it’s hard to believe that anyone could have lived in the house. However, the last tenant was a local fisherman coming in at a height of 6 foot 3 inches! Since he moved out in 1900, the house has become a tourist hot-spot for people from all over the world, and has been officially named in the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘smallest house in Great Britain’.
  • Ugly House, Betws-y-Coed. Known in Wales as ‘Ty Hyll’, the true origins of the house remain a mystery. However, the local legend tells us that the house was built by two brothers overnight. Under ancient law, if you could build a house between sunrise and sunset, you could claim the freehold, as long as it has walls, a roof and a smoking chimney. The Ugly House is now looked after by the Snowdonia Society, and has become a very popular cottage for people to visit.
  • The Great Orme Tramway is one of only three cable-hauled Tramways left in the world, with the other two being in America and Portugal. Lovingly refurbished, take a seat in the original Victorian Tramcar, and enjoy the picturesque one mile trip to the summit of the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve. To get back down to Llandudno, you can either use the Tramway, or use the Great Orme Cable Car which is the longest Aerial Cabin Lift in the UK. The cable car allows you to sit back and see the outstanding views of the surrounding areas, and further beyond!
  • Great Orme Ancient Mines. These copper mines were uncovered back in 1987. Archaeologists have since dated the mines to over 4,000 years ago in the Bronze Age, and continue to reveal more and more tunnels. It is now believed to be the largest Prehistoric mine discovered in the world to date. Suitable for families, take a walk through the tunnels and have a sense of what our ancestors did on a daily basis thousands of years ago. The visitor centre includes 4,000 year old artefacts and the mining told that they used. After being in the tunnels, these tools will leave you wondering how the excavation of the land was even possible.

Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia National Park is one of the biggest National Parks in Britain. Covering an area of 823 square miles, it includes over 100 lakes as well as the tallest mountain in England and Wales, Snowdon. Snowdon is very popular with walkers, and has a number of walking paths, ranging it its difficulty level. If you want to go up to Snowdon’s summit but don’t fancy the trek, jump on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. The steam hauled, single carriage trains have been taking visitors to the summit for over a century, and takes about 2.5 hours for the return journey. Half an hour of this is spent at the peak, where you can enjoy the magnificent views for miles and miles around. On a clear day you can see as far as Pembrokeshire and Ireland. In 2009, the visitor centre at the top of Snowdon, called Hafod Eryri, opened. The centre provides visitors with refreshment facilities, toilets and information about the history of the mountain.
