Nestled between the rugged Welsh hillside and an expansive sweep of luxurious golden sand, Taliesin sits atop a prominent outlet of land commanding majestic views of Cardigan Bay and far out into the Irish Sea, Black Rock Sands Beach and the Glaslyn Estuary perfectly framed by the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park beyond.
Escape from it all and immerse yourself in an area steeped in history and unparalleled natural beauty. With only 16 bespoke lodges, our site offers exclusivity, yet community with likeminded guests on our family run site.
All you need to do is decide how best to spend your time with us at Taliesin.
You may wish to spend the day in and around your stylish lodge on beautifully landscaped grounds soaking up the atmosphere and drinking in the views. Or, if you wish, head on foot eastbound along the beach and down along the estuary toward Porthmadog and you will pass the quaint and picturesque village of Borth y Gest.
Head westward on foot, and you will soon find yourself on Criccieth beach where you will find the beautifully restored Art Deco building that is home to Dylan’s Seafood Restaurant, popular with locals and visitors alike for its charm, great position on the seafront and tasty food. Perhaps enjoy a world famous Cadwalader’s Ice Cream and take in the majesty of Criccieth Castle.
Taliesin is also situated on the Wales Coast Path. This section will take you along undulating inland paths and back out onto the heights of the cliffs. A perfect experience for walkers of all abilities, and energy levels.
Unlike other destinations that can offer you this level of seclusion and exclusivity, Taliesin has another advantage. Here you can avoid the worst of the traffic jams and bottlenecks elsewhere found in the North West of Wales and head out with relative ease for excellent days out. Portmeirion Village, Beddgelert, Snowdon, Caernarfon Castle are but a sample of which you can reach, and be back in time for an evening drink on the terrace, without the added stress of hours of holiday traffic.
