Places to Stay in Snowdonia

As part of our Green Traveller's Guide to Snowdonia, Paul Bloomfield picks out a selection of B&Bs, hotels, self-catering and campsites in this glorious National Park in northwest Wales.

We have scoured the region to find places to suit every perference and every budget. Whether you're after a home-from-home B&B experience with owners on hand for local recommendations, a remote cottage with sweeping valley views where children can run riot, or a romatic break for two in a luxury hotel, we're pretty sure you'll be able to find something that suits you in our collection of green and gorgeous places to stay.

And whilst the region's jagged peaks and beautiful, lonely valleys draw climbers in their thousands annually, it's easy to forget about the sandy coves and towering cliffs of North Wales' stunning coastline, so we've included a sprinkling of places along Snowdonia's beautiful coast for beachseekers, too.
