Pocket Guide: Criccieth Criccieth Castle Hotels

Like many of the towns in this stunning corner of Wales, Criccieth has experienced its fair share of history, with armies fighting over the region for hundreds of years.

Perched on a headland in the centre of the bay, the castle is close to many of the town’s best hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses.

Criccieth Castle

Built in the early 13th Century by Llywelyn ab lorwerth to defend the region from the English, Criccieth Castle was heavily fortified and modified following its capture by the forces of Edward I. The site of several further battles, the castle was used as a prison until it was retaken by Owain Glyndwr in 1404. The Welsh forces then tore down the castle walls and set the building alight, turning it into the ruin we see today.
