Choose the Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia for your next outdoor adventure

Right on the doorstep of Snowdonia National Park, Adventure Parc Snowdonia is one of those fantastic destinations where there’s no such thing as the wrong kind of weather and not enough to do.

Base yourself in the park’s stunning new lagoonside Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia and you’ll wake up in the thick of things. Opened in spring 2021, it was designed with year-round adventures in mind, making it a great choice for an autumn or winter break.

With huge windows to capture those glorious views of mountains and forests, your heart will start racing the moment you throw open the curtains.

Work on your swing at Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club

Founded in 1899, Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club played a surprise role in aviation history when, in August 1910, a Farman biplane dropped in. Making an emergency landing just 100 yards from the club house, it was the very first aeroplane to touch down in North Wales. Its pilot, the actor and fearless aviation pioneer Robert Loraine, was attempting a record-breaking over-sea flight, by travelling from Blackpool to Holyhead, then across the Irish Sea. Sad though it was that bad weather and technical issues scuppered his ambitious plan, Rhos-on-Sea was thrilled by their glamorous unexpected guest!

Declaring itself (proudly) the friendliest course in North Wales, this picturesque coastal club still has hospitality down to a tee. They’re always delighted to welcome visitors, even if you’re just in Conwy County for a flying visit.

Climb Great Orme from Osborne House

Perched on the Llandudno seafront at the foot of Great Orme, Osborne House is an elegant hotel with an exclusive, private-residence feel. If you can tear yourself away from your sumptuous, ultra-comfortable suite, you could stroll to the Great Orme Tramway and ride up the hill on Britain’s only funicular to travel on public roads. It’s nostalgia at its best.

To the south and east, Llandudno’s Victorian splendour fans out all around, with Mostyn Street, North Shore Beach and the famously long pier all within easy reach. Guests are also welcome to use the restaurant, lounge, spa and saltwater pool at Osborne House’s parent hotel, the four-star Empire, located just a minute away.

Follow the White Rabbit to The Whitehouse Hotel

If you’re fascinated by all things Alice, you’ll love Llandudno’s Alice in Wonderland trail. The Whitehouse Hotel makes a handy base for an autumn or winter break with a Wonderland twist – centrally located, it’s right on the seafront, just a hop and a skip from Llandudno’s merry gaggle of statues and sights depicting characters from Carroll’s tale.

With modern rooms behind a Victorian facade, the Whitehouse is surprisingly affordable for a pad with sea views. Oh yes – and it’s pet-friendly, as well. But whether that extends to flamingos, Cheshire cats or bread-and-butterflies, we couldn’t possibly say.

Feast on local lobster at Paysanne

Cai Ross, the upbeat co-owner of French restaurant Paysanne in Deganwy, reckons that this year, his customers deserve to treat themselves. And who are we to argue? To help them push the boat out, he’s been hosting regular Homard et Frites (lobster and chips) evenings, featuring locally caught lobster in thermidor sauce all cooked and prepared by their very own chef David Hughes.

They’ve proved so popular that Cai and his team have decided to donate some of the proceeds to charity. “I’m delighted to say that our Ty Gobaith / Hope House Homard et Frites evening has already sold out, raising over a thousand pounds for a marvellous and vital local hospice that does so much to help children in need and their parents”, he says. Lobster-lovers can still snap up a table for 28 September, if they’re quick.
