WHEN TO GO

Practical Caravan - - Travel Getaway -

We went in April, when the weather was cool but sunny, al­though the Lleyn Penin­sula is an at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion all year. Av­er­age tem­per­a­tures range from 9C in win­ter to 18C in sum­mer.

WAY TO GO

The Lleyn Penin­sula is ac­ces­si­ble, only hours away from some of the UK’S big­gest cities. Our jour­ney from the Peak Dis­trict took two-and-a-half hours, from Bux­ton via the A537 to join the M6 at Knutsford, then the M56 to north Wales. We picked up the A55 via Conwy then the A487 to Caernar­fon and Porth­madog, be­fore turn­ing left on to the B4411 and mi­nor roads to Llanys­tumdwy.

FOOD AND DRINK

In Cric­ci­eth we en­joyed an out­door lunch in the gar­den at dog-friendly Caffi Cwrt. Lo­cal pro­duce, in­clud­ing Welsh lamb and cheeses, fea­tured promi­nently on the din­ner menu at Tif­fin. Lo­cally pro­duced milk is trans­formed into de­li­cious ice cream at Caffi’r An­gel in Port­meirion, while Blades Café and Deli in Aber­soch serves freshly made break­fast, lunch and open sand­wiches.
