Attraction

A brute of a fortress. Caernarfon Castle’s pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect.

Attraction

A charming little cottage, low of beam and dark of stone, in the heart of Beddgelert. It’s owned by the National Trust, so you’d expect it to be historic – and it certainly is.
