South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.
The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David's Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.
In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.
The Llyn Peninsula is an eight mile wide strip of land just to the south-west of Caernarfon that is one of Wales\' finest beauty spots. Much of the coastline is in the care of the Trust and there are some fine and accessible beaches. Wildlife enthusiasts will find much to enjoy here and there are also opportunities for sailing, fishing and diving. Plas yn Rhiw is a 16th-century house with Georgian additions with views across Cardigan Bay. One of our holiday homes adjoins the house and the other stands in an elevated position overlooking Hell?s Mouth Bay. Holiday Cottage guests have free access to Plas yn Rhiw house and gardens during opening hours. Other National Trust places nearby include Llanbedrog Beach, Penrhyn Castle, Porthdinllaen, Porthor. Other attractions in the area include Abersoch Beach, famous for its surfing, Aberdaron, Porthdinllaen, Porthor, the beauties of Snowdonia, the wonderfully quirky village of Portmeirion and boat trip to Bardsey Island
