Beautiful spots for a picnic in North Wales

It is safe to say that North Wales is one of the most stunning regions in the UK, and as such there are many beautiful spots that holidaymakers can seek out. There are countless sandy beaches, snow-capped mountains, rolling green hills and towering waterfalls for you to fall in love with. And one of the best ways to enjoy them is with a leisurely picnic, where you can stop and take the time to take in the wonders of North Wales.Aber Falls Located near the town of Abergwyngregyn in Gwynedd, this stunning waterfall is an impressive sight, especially in the spring when the seasonal rains make the water swell to greater heights. At an exhilarating 120ft, staring up at the waters of the Afon Goch as they plunge over the rocky edge is an experience never to forget. Improvements to the parking and footpaths nearby mean the waterfall is easily accessible. Conwy The walled town of Conwy is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s is easy to see why when you catch a glimpse of the medieval castle at its centre. Built by Edward I in the 13th century to subdue the Welsh, it is no surprise the stone walls which sprout straight upright from their rocky foundation is intimidating. The battlements and castle walls provide the perfect outlook for surveying the estuary and spotting the wildlife that passes through. Llyn Gwynant There are lots of lovely lakes in North Wales, nestled between the peaks of Snowdonia, which make for gorgeous picnic spots. As such, it was hard to pick just one as our favourite. However, Llyn Gwynant is easily accessible and also provides fantastic kayaking conditions. Along the edge of the lake are stopping points with access to the pebbly beaches, perfect for launching a kayak or dinghy on and enjoying a private picnic amongst nature. Beddgelert This little village in Snowdonia is unspoilt by the modern world, with traditional stone cottages and a breath-taking mountain backdrop. In the summer, residents of the village display flowers in a rainbow of colour above shop windows and hanging from lampposts. We highly recommend visiting the village while out walking in the national park and soaking up the views of the surrounding landscape. Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr Between Ruthin and Cerrigydrudion is the tiny village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr. The village sits alongside the Alwen River, just along from the Alwen Dam. There are various walks in the area for you to enjoy and a picnic looking out to the heather moors and thick forests, the largest outside of Scotland. If you want to have a place close to many of these sights in North Wales, Lyons has Wales caravans for sale in places like Ruthin and Conwy, which are perfect. Image by: Stuart Madden
