Love History and Stunning Scenery? Try Llandudno North Wales

Space Boutique

While Llandudno is the largest seaside resort in Wales (and there are an incredible amount of hotels in Llandudno along the promenade) it isn't just about beaches and ice-cream: Far from it. There is a lot of history around and about the town as well as some incredible scenery to enjoy - A great place for nature lovers. The nearest airport is almost fifty miles from the town: The London and North Western Railway however runs a good connecting service. I love history and a bit of nostalgia always goes down well in my book. I wanted to relax but ultimately I saw Llandudno as the centre for a sightseeing expedition: However, there is a lot to discover within just a few miles of the town and the bus service is good - I could have easily left the car at home.

I arrived early afternoon at my hotel. I'd had a good look around on the internet for hotels Llandudno. I felt I was lucky with this one. I cool little boutique hotel on the west shore. The owners were there to greet me and I liked them straight away. My room was absolutely brilliant. It was a small hotel, just eleven guest rooms and every room had its own theme. My room was called Zameen which means 'earth's soil' in Hindu. I really liked the Asian feel with its warm rose pinks and earthy browns. It was well furnished and the bathroom was enormous: I adored the complementary L'Occataine toiletries provided.

As I had arrived fairly early I decided to start with a walk into town. There is a classic award winning Victorian Pier in Llandudno (built in 1878) which stirred my curiosity and I needed some air. The Pier was fun: A nice mix of old and new. It was a beautiful clear day so I could see the Snowdonia Mountains in the distance: Awesome views. Llandudno also has a free museum open in the afternoons from Easter to the end of October. So why not? The old Welsh kitchen exhibit was unusual and there was a lot of information about the town. I enjoyed it although my visit was fairly brief.

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in Llandudno's North Bay area. I had a light (although late) lunch. The pricing wasn't too bad - pretty much what you would expect at a popular seaside resort like this. I stayed at the hotel two nights and after eating in their restaurant the first night had no hesitation booking a table for the next. The food was absolutely brilliant. Not your 'usual' in any sense of the word. They also had a nice bar lounge and comprehensive wine list! There seemed little reason to venture out...

After an extremely hearty breakfast of French toasts topped with welsh ham, strawberries and maple syrup I set off for Conway Town and Degannwy which is just a couple of miles away - Although I have to say there isn't actually much of the castle left, virtually a pile of rubble! - The views of the river and town were stunning. I also enjoyed a rather 'perfect' brew in one of the town's tea houses. I have yet to discover the Great Orme entirely but have every intention of doing so. I think my little boutique hotel was a real find too so will definitely be going back.
