This modern 38-foot Willerby Caprice caravan is situated on the beautiful Aberdunant Hall Holiday Park. Nestled in the woodland the park is very family and dog friendly and is the perfect place to relax and explore Snowdonia National Park by foot, bike, car or even steam train! Dogs are welcome (however not in the bedrooms or on the beds and must not be left unattended). Dogs must be kept on a lead around the main park but are allowed off lead on the woodland trails around the park. The site is a 10 minute drive to the beach in nearby Porthmadog or lovely riverside walks in Bedgelert.
Places To Eat.
Aberdunant Hall Hotel, bar & restaurant (popular so pre booking advised for evening meals and Sunday dinners). Children’s Play Area. Dogs not allowed inside but there is plenty of covered seating outside. The nearest pub (excluding Aberdunant Hall itself) is also in Llanfrothen - The Brondanw Arms (https://www.robinsonsbrewery.com/brondanwarms)
The Golden Fleece Inn (http://www.goldenfleeceinn.com/ pre booking for dinner is advised) and The Union Inn (http://www.union-inn.com/) are both 2.5 miles away in Tremadog, towards Porthmadog. The Golden Fleece is dog friendly.
There are several pubs in nearby Bedgellert; The Royal Goat, the Prince Llewelyn, the Tanronnen Inn and The Saracens Head. The best of these is the Saracens head where dogs are welcome inside and out and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. They have a small car park for patrons. (http://www.saracens-head.co.uk)
Also in Bedgellert the Hebog Eat & Sleep bistro serves a wide range of food & drink and has a lovely riverside outdoor seating area. (http://www.hebog-beddgelert.co.uk/)
Betws-y-Coed is approximately 35 minutes’ (22 miles) drive away and has an abundance of Outdoor Shops many with discounted prices. It has many places to eat but we have had many nice lunches at The Alpine Coffee Shop.
The nearest shop and cafe is at Llanfrothen on the A4085 approx. 2 miles/5 mins away (see local map). Sells local produce – highly recommend the Harlech Cheese!
Tan y Bwlch has a station where you can catch the Ffestiniog Steam Train and has little café serving good food. Just along from the station there is a pleasant walk around a lake and several picnic benches.
Porthmadog is approx. 3.5 miles (5 minutes’ drive) along the A498 south-west (turn right out of the park). This large town has a Tesco and Wilko’s as well as the usual banks, chemists, cafes, gift shops and pet shop. It also has…
• Purple Moose Brewery Shop.
• Glaslyn Leisure Centre with swimming pool, non-members welcome.
• Train Station for Ffestiniog Railway and Welsh Highland Railway (dogs welcome on trains).
• Cadwalders Ice Cream Parlour.
• A pretty harbour ideal for Crabbing!
Just outside Porthmadog is Portmeirion, the colourful village created by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis with its famous pottery and is also where ‘The Prisoner’ TV series was filmed. A great day out and if you get chance stop for food at Castell Deudraeth just before you enter the village.
Black Rock Sands is 5 minutes’ drive from Porthmadog (turn right at the Post Office onto ‘Bank Place’) and is a large sandy beach which is dog friendly all year (restrictions in summer months). Great views of Criccieth Castle.
Beddgelert is approx. 4.5 miles along the A498 north (turn left out of the park). This picturesque village has a stop for the Welsh Highland Railway and a large pay & display car park. There are two easy access walks on either side of the river Glaslyn; one to Gelert’s Grave and the other to the Devils Bridge in Pont Aberglaslyn (this does get uneven towards the end).
Snowdonia has many fantastic walks for all abilities (see the guide in the caravan). However one of our favourites is the walk from Ogwen Cottage around the Llyn Idwal tarn and surrounded by amazing views of Tryfan and The Glyders. This walk takes approximately an hour and is not strenuous. Refreshments and toilets at the Cottage.
Llanberis is approximately 30 minutes’ drive (18 miles) and from here you can park and walk up Snowdon, or for the less energetic catch the steam train. In summer months it is advisable to book to avoid disappointment.
Harlech is 10 miles away (20 minutes’ drive) and is a pretty little place with fantastic castle, well worth a visit. A few cafes and gift shops there too. The beach is just outside the town and is a large sandy beach on which dogs are welcome all year (restrictions in summer months).
Llandanwg is South of Harlech (2 miles) and is a really pretty beach which is again dog friendly.
