Often referred to as one of the best places in all of Wales to get a traditional afternoon tea, the St Tudno Hotel and Restaurant in Llandudno is an award winning setting that offers up some fantastic views over Lake Como alongside its fantastic food choices.
St Tudno is named after the same saint as the town – Llandudno means simply “the land of Tudno” – and you will see why it is so divinely named as soon as you take a bite of the homemade cakes and pastries. The afternoon tea also, of course, comes with a great variety of lovely sandwiches, as well as a slice or two of buttered Bara Brith, the famous Welsh fruit loaf.
Should the afternoon tea not be what you’re looking for, the terrace restaurant also comes highly recommended; its seven chefs offer up a wide range of mouth-watering dishes both traditional and contemporary, such as pan fried scallops with deep fried capers, fresh Conwy mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce, oven baked duck breast with chive and spinach cakes, and a beautiful fillet of Welsh beef, cooked to your liking.
And when it comes to desserts, you shouldn’t miss the lemon posset!
Located on the far end of the South Parade on the Llandudno promenade, the St Tudno Hotel is easy to find if you keep your eyes peeled as you walk down this road! It is close to the roundabout before you head toward the Llandudno Pier.

The Llandudno Ski and Snowboard Centre is exactly what it sounds like – a place where you can hit the slopes, that is based in the lovely, traditional seaside resort town that is Llandudno, on the North Wales coast.
The town of Llandudno is one of those classic seaside resort towns, complete with all the requisite parts: a lovely Victorian pier, old school amusement arcades, and quality coastal fish and chip shops. There is also the majestic Great Orme, from the top of which incredible views over the area can be enjoyed, but another main attraction is – of course – the North Shore beach.
The Great Orme in Llandudno is a famous attraction in its own right – there’s the Bronze Age caves, the nature reserve and, of course, the old tramway and its museum. Everyone knows about the tramway, but less well-known are the aerial cable cars. They are no less spectacular, so if you’re in Llandudno, it’s well worth hitching a ride on one of them.
Take a walk to the end of the pier, make sand castles on the beach, ride the tram or a cable car to the top of the Great Orme and treat yourself to a meal at one of the many restaurants. Llandudno has a lot to offer and is a great base for exploring North Wales.
Explore the most Westerly part of North Wales with its many beaches and green rolling countryside. A cottage in the Lleyn Peninsula is the perfect way to explore the area - visit Whistling Sands Beach, the spectacular golf course in Nefyn with its picturesque fishing village, a boat trip to Bardsey Island or spend time in one of the local towns such as Abardaron, Abersoch, Pwllehli or Criccieth.
