Where to stay in Criccieth

About Criccieth

Criccieth is a laid-back seaside town surrounded by sandy beaches and soaring sea cliffs. It's perched on Cardigan Bay and is anchored by a medieval castle. Spend your days soaking up the sun on Blue Flag beaches, visiting local museums and devouring freshly-caught fish and chips.

Things to do

Crowned with Blue Flag status, Criccieth Beach is a favourite with families, known for its shingle sand, glassy water and breezy oceanfront promenade. For a classic Welsh experience, pick up a serving of crispy battered cod from Castle Fish & Chips and enjoy a picnic on the beach.

It's hard to miss Criccieth Castle, a cliffside 13th-century stronghold. It was raised by Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great, though over the following centuries it was often captured by the English. Wander around the ruins and enjoy knockout views over Tremadog Bay.

The Lloyd George Museum offers a fascinating glimpse at the legacy of Criccieth's most famous son. Inside you can learn more about the British prime minister who played a key role in introducing the globally admired National Insurance scheme to the United Kingdom.

Criccieth is a great base for exploring the picturesque Gwynedd countryside. Nature enthusiasts will love Moel y Gest, a rugged hill with sweeping views over Criccieth and the Lleyn Peninsula.

Getting around

Criccieth is easily explored on foot, while rental cars offer the freedom to tour the Gwynedd countryside at your own pace. The town is well-serviced by Criccieth Railway Station, with connections to Barmouth taking around one hour.
