Accessible North Wales: places to stay

You’ll feel instantly at home in North Wales, with a great range of hotels, B&Bs, self-catering cottages and holiday parks geared up to welcome people with disabilities.

  • Kinmel Bay in Conwy
    Kinmel Bay, Conwy

    With wide doors and accessible bathroom facilities with grab rails, this five bedroom holiday bungalow is wheelchair-friendly. It’s also great for families with kids – the beach is just 200m away and there are castles, heritage railways and adventure attractions within easy reach.

  • Several buildings at this organic farm have been converted into self-catering cottages. Y Bwthyn, formerly a barn is now a cosy two bedroom bungalow. The former cowshed, Y Beudy, is an eco-friendly building with geothermal heating and three bedrooms. Both have accessible showers.

  • To stay in the heart of Portmeirion, book the Dome, a ground floor double room with an adapted bathroom and stunning views of the village and coast. Portmeirion has many steep slopes and steps – if you’d prefer to steer clear, pick up a map of the wheelchair-friendly route through the village.

  • All the rooms at Estuary Lodge are on the ground floor and are individually decorated with luxurious fabrics. One room has been adapted for wheelchair-users. Between Harlech and Porthmadog, this hotel is handy for Portmeirion and RSPB Ynys Hir.

  • Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is spelt out phonetically on the train station sign.

  • Garreg Goch is close to Morfa Bychan’s famously lovely Blue Flag beach, Black Rock Sands. One of the static caravans at this popular holiday park is fully accessible to wheelchair-users, with a central location and ramped access. The park also has a toilet and shower room for disabled guests.
