WHEN TO GO
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.
