5 days from £2,595pp

Set in uniquely wild, rugged & picturesque Snowdonia, We have a special selection of visits arranged to delight and
inspire in this stunning area of outstanding natural beauty
  • Wander through the magnificent terraces of Bodnant Gardens, leading down to the Pin Mill and out to the dell and woodland gardens beyond

  • Spend a full day on the Llŷn Peninsula, with visits to three contrasting gardens
The superb gardens of Snowdonia share the mild Gulf Stream influence, acid soils and tender, exotic plants
of the better-known Cornish & West Coast Scotland, but we also learn how these gardens have been created to stand
up to the sometime severe weather and terrain. We stay at two of the best hotels in Wales, both with stunning views
of mountain and sea. Historic Bodysgallen Hall provides all that is great in country house hospitality including its
own 3AA Rosettes rated restaurant. At Portmeirion, you will be accommodated either in the main hotel, the famous
Portmeirion or in Castell Deudraeth, the 19th century folly Castle, dining one night in the main hotel and one night at
the Castell Deudraeth Brasserie Restaurant.

The Portmeirion Hotel, Portmeirion

★★★★

The 4-Star Hotel Portmeirion is a luxury hotel overlooking the sandy beaches of the Dwyryd Estuary in Snowdonia, North Wales.  It has 14 stylish bedrooms, some with lift access, a fine-dining restaurant, a bar and terrace and several relaxing lounges. Clough Williams-Ellis opened The Hotel Portmeirion at Easter, 1926 as the focal point for his proposed ideal village.  He retained much of the Victorian interior including an intricate Italian fireplace, the grand Mirror Room, the library carvings from the Great Exhibition of 1851 and a grand eighteenth-century oak staircase.  The bar and dining room were re-styled by Sir Terrence Conran in 2005 to recreate the atmosphere of Clough's art deco walnut panelled rooms.  The Hotel Portmeirion maintains a high standard of cuisine and excellent service in a magical setting.
