Portmeirion was created by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976. He wanted to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it.

Aside from its iconic architecture, scenic surroundings and vast woodland gardens, Portmeirion is home to hip hotels, a huddle of historic cottages, a spa and award winning restuarants. During peak season (Late March to Late October), you can learn more about this unique village with free walking and train tours. Our Visitor Centre is open all year and can help with more information, books and maps.

Nefyn and District Golf Club was formed in 1907 The course was converted from 9 holes to 18 holes in 1912 and after many minor transformations, a further 9 holes were added in 1933 (only 26 holes are now being played). The course now consists of a front 10 holes and two distinctly different back 8 holes. It is a proud boast of the club and its members that you can see the sea from every tee on the course. The epithet "This is the most beautiful course I have ever played" has come both from visitors from all over the world and from many critical reviews in books and magazines.
