There was one last place I wanted to visit in Wales before heading home and that was the ever beautiful Portmerion. Situated on the outer edge of Snowdonia towards the sea, sits a village designed by it's original owner, which took him over 50 years to complete, with the sole purpose to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it. He hoped the village would make people think about buildings in the landscape. That's pretty impressive to me.

We spent the afternoon strolling the grounds, eating lunch and taking in the long awaited sun, it didn't feel like Wales at all.

After my mum snapped some cheesy photos of us, we meandered along the gorgeous stretch of beach

Portmerion is open all year round, and you can enter (for a tenner) from 9.30-7.30, you can also stay over at the hotel, or head down for dinner, but if you are ever in the area then pop in for a delightful afternoon.
