Spring in Snowdonia

If you often go on caravan holidays in North Wales, then you will be well aware of how beautiful the landscape is. Now that January is here, our thoughts are turning to Spring, and the thought of getting outside and enjoying the national park, and the towns and villages that surround it.

There is a variety of landscapes to enjoy in the area surrounding Plassey, from woodland walks to beautiful beaches. In this article, we have rounded up some of the most scenic places in the area, for you to enjoy when Spring finally arrives.



Beddgelert is a small village within the Snowdonia National Park, and it is also home to a forest as well. The forest consists of conifers which are an excellent home for lots of different types of wildlife and nature. Not only is it a great place for peaceful walks but it also has some fantastic cycling paths as well.


Caernarfon Town

If you are looking for some beautiful coastal views, then Caernarfon is the place to go – making it popular with tourists – especially in the summer. Not only can you have a lovely waterside stroll, but you can also visit Caernarfon Castle – which was built in the 13th century as a medieval fortress. There is a museum inside the castle, and you can also tour the gardens as well. If you climb the castle walls, you will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the Irish Sea as well as Caernarfon itself.


Dinas Dinlle

One of the best beaches in North Wales is the beach at Dinas Dinlle. Offering super views of the Llyn Peninsula and the Isle of Anglesey, it is a favourite beach of many surfers. It is, however, a bit of a hidden gem and so is a perfect place to take a quiet stroll or just sit and watch the waves. There are a range of really useful facilities here as well, including a cafe, car park, and toilets.



This small village at the foot of Snowdon is situated on the southern bank of the Llyn Pardarn Lake and it a great place to start your walk-up Snowdon. Llanberis is a really popular place for lots of people to visit as it is also home to the Llanberis Lake Railway which takes you on a journey around the lake, and also the National Slate Museum which gives you an insight into the local Dinorwic slate quarry.
