3 Must Visit National Trust Locations

Here at West Point Beach Resort, we are central to some fantastic attractions. The National Trust has a number of locations within the area which are perfect to visit throughout the year, rain or shine! We have rounded up 3 brilliant days out that are perfect to explore during the autumn and winter months.

PORTHDINLLAEN

One of the benefits of visiting North Wales is the easy access to some of the UK’s most beautiful coastlines. Porthdinllaen is an old fishing village which stretches into the Irish Sea, known for its natural beauty it is the perfect place to spend the day. After plans to make Porthdinllaen into a major port for links to Ireland, the National Trust now maintains and preserves the village. As vehicular access is for residents only, you will experience a breath of fresh air and a chance to explore the area by foot.

PLAS NEWYDD HOUSE AND GARDENS

Plas Newydd is an enchanting mansion perfectly placed on the shores of the Menai Strait. First occupied in the 13th Century, the house has been inherited by families for over 500 years before the National Trust opened it up to the public in 1976. The house was redesigned in the 18th Century by architect James Wyatt in a 1930’s style; you will see a range of original furniture and features. Plas Newydd is also surrounded by stunning grounds including woodland walks and sheltered gardens, something to definitely take advantage of.

PENRHYN CASTLE

A unique 19th Century Castle with extensive grounds, Penrhyn Castle is the ideal place to explore. With luxury rooms, Victorian kitchens and gothic stairways, there is something for everyone. In addition to the historic interiors, there are a number of other activities to enjoy including a visit to the railway museum, experiencing life in the Victorian kitchens or a stroll in the gardens. New to 2017, the house has introduced a “delve into the detail tour” which gives you a deeper insight into life at Penrhyn Castle.
