Lifestyle in North Wales
Explore the great outdoors of Snowdonia National Park, the home to mile upon mile of hiking routes and scenery that varies from rugged windswept mountainsides to soft sandy beaches. If you’d prefer to take in the landscape in shelter and comfort, climb aboard one of the many historic stream trains that wind through the hills and valleys, offering panoramic views of the surroundings.
Wales has a proud history and heritage just waiting to be discovered, from ancient castles and ruins built by Kings to mountains, vales and caverns shrouded in folklore and mystery. Set within a world heritage site, the 13th century Conwy Castle is a huge and imposing structure and a marvel of medieval architecture. Constructed by Edward I between 1283 and 1289, it was a key fortress in North Wales.
The varied seaside towns feature promenades and traditional seaside attractions. Llandudno Pier has attracted tourists for decades, with traditional seaside arcade games and shops. Elsewhere, the unique village of Portmeirion hosts Festival Number 6 in early September every year. It attracts revellers of all ages from across the country and features musicians, performances, comedians, immersive experiences and much more.
Towns like Rhyl, Holyhead and Llandudno have thriving communities and plenty of attractions available year-round, while the city of Bangor offers culture, shopping and more. All are easily accessible from our retirement properties in North Wales.

A popular summer holiday destination, the island of Anglesey features stunning landscapes, scenic walking routes, historic towns and attractions, and miles and miles of pristine beaches.
