How to sum up Penllystyn Farm? There's a lot to like about this Gwynedd smallholding site, but the three main highlights have got to be the seriously good views, waterside walks and all-round chilled farm vibes. Here you'll be sitting pretty in the small village of Bryncir, just outside Snowdonia National Park and a 10-minute drive from the coast.
Around the 10-acre site are a handful of farm animals along with a small woodland area and a riverside picnic spot, where you can also take a paddle or let the dogs cool off with a dip. Picnics, barbecues and campfires are all encouraged around here, but there’s also a good local pub/restaurant half a mile away if you fancy eating out.
It should be pretty easy to reach the other amenities in the surrounding area, as the farm is just off the speedy A487 main road. Where that road takes you is totally up to you, but one thing's for sure – you won't feel boxed in here. To the east, you have the myriad walks and adventurous activities of Snowdonia, while those who head north will be rewarded with such spots as Caernarfon Castle and Anglesey. Meanwhile, set your sights on the south or west for days out on the spectacular beaches of the Llŷn Peninsula, treks around the wild Wales Coast Path or sightseeing in the pastel-coloured town of Portmeirion.

If guests in your group are clamouring for castles, send them off to Criccieth (10 minutes' drive), a Cadw-run 13th-century fortress with impressive views over Cardigan Bay. You might also want to call in at Caernarfon Castle (20 minutes) on the southern edge of the Menai Strait, whose mighty walls endured both Owain Glyndwr's sieges and the fiercest fighting of the Civil War.
Once you've seen some of the coast, take to the mountains and Snowdonia, where excellent walks are up for grabs at scenic spots like Llanberis (20 minutes) or Beddgelert (20 minutes). Fancy trading in your walking boots for old-fashioned steam train trips? The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway (15 minutes) can sort visitors with whistle-stop tours of the spectacular local landscape.
For something a bit more active, Zip World Slate Caverns (35 minutes) should fit the bill with its zipwires, trampolines and underground play park. Older kids in your crew might be more taken by the action-packed activities laid on at Adventure Parc Snowdonia (an hour), including top-rated watersports like freshwater surfing.
