Family-Friendly Dwyfor Ranch, Criccieth
April to Autumn daily, 10:00-17:00
Adults £4.50, Children and OAPs £4

For over three decades, this farm has been a family favourite, so now it’s your turn to enjoy the lovely little place! Near to Porthmadog and Pwllheli, the Dwyfor Ranch is situated on the beautiful Llyn Peninsula, close to the beautiful blue waters of St George’s Channel.

Your children will be able to handle an impressive range of different farm animals, including a number of rare breeds that they might not see elsewhere. Animals that can be handled include puppies, rabbits and guinea pigs, but you can also hand-feed some of the larger animals, such as lambs, alpacas, ponies, pigs, lambs and even rheas! If you take a visit to Dwyfor Ranch in spring, you may even be fortunate enough to see a birth for yourself!

Once you’ve fed those animals, you may find it’s time your own little animals had something to eat as well. Fortunately for you, the Caffi yr Efail (Smithy Café) is on site, offering up a wide selection of lovely, homemade cakes, as well as a full menu of Paninis, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and freshly made soups. Delicious!

Before you leave, make sure the kids have a ride on the ponies – it’s something

Tower in Portmeirion Portmeirion

Sometimes called the Welsh Riviera, the village was designed and built by the famed architect, Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis. The design was reportedly based on the Italian fishing village of Portofino, which Williams-Ellis had visited and fallen in love with, saying “its image remained with me as an almost perfect example of the man-made adornment and use of an exquisite site”.

Criccieth Castle Looking Into The Bay Criccieth Castle

Criccieth Castle was constructed on the headland between two beaches, meaning it watches over the town from above like a sentinel. Rather a lot of the original structure is still intact, allowing visitors to see an almost complete picture of what the castle would have looked like all those centuries ago, with their imaginations filling in the gaps.

Portmeirion is a place you have to visit during your stay in North Wales. In the beautiful location of the Dwyrd Estuary the Architect Clough Willimas-Ellis created an Italianate Village.
