The Pearl of Wales on the shores of SnowdoniaCriccieth lies on the south side of the Llyn Peninsula with splendid views over Cardigan Bay. It is home to a medieval castle, built by the Welsh in the mid-thirteenth century but later taken by Edward I who incorporated it into his ring of castles designed to maintain Norman control. It was captured by Owain Glyndwr in the uprising of 1404 and the scorch marks from that battle can still be seen! The castle headland divides the town into two with a pebbly beach to the west and a lovely sheltered mainly sandy beach to the east. Nearby is the village of Llanystumdwy, which boasts a museum devoted to David Lloyd George, the "Welsh Wizard", whose family once lived in Criccieth. The countryside around Criccieth is breathtaking withfabulous coastal views over Cardigan Bay, awesome mountain scenery in Snowdonia and delightful gardens and castles at every turn.
