The many faces of award-winning North Wales

Two of the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Wales can be located right in North Wales, namely the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal, and the Edwardian castles and town walls collection.

But there is much more to the region than that, which is why so many people look to relocate there each year.

Something for everyone in North Wales

There is property in North Wales for sale or rent in towns such as Wrexham, Caernarfon, Conwy and Llandudno to suit single people, couples and families. From small but cosy one-bedroom flats up to elegant mansions with extensive gardens, the entire accommodation spectrum is covered.

House prices in North Wales can vary every bit as much as the property designs and styles to be found in the region. If you only have a modest budget, but long to relocate to one of the most breathtakingly panoramic locales in the UK, you might just find a lovely little flint cottage for a snip.

Other types of properties available in the area include spacious three or four-bedroom detached family homes, smart townhouses (look in Wrexham and Bangor for these), high-specification luxury apartments that can often have up to four bedrooms, and perfectly appointed bungalows with coastal views.

Getting there

Although some of the very best properties in the region are located in remote areas, these can still be accessed through a network of winding country roads and lanes.

Years ago, numerous railways were built to transport Iron and coal from South Wales mines for export as well as slate from North Wales. Those very same tracks now carry high-speed trains from London and elsewhere. The London (King's Cross) to Wrexham train (via Shrophire) only takes three hours.

There is an Express Coach Service (number 420) from Wrexham to London (Victoria) that operates daily. Motorways serving North Wales include the M6, M56 and the A55. The region is best served by Cardiff and Swansea airports. These connect with direct flights from around the UK and worldwide.

Things to do

Even if your real reason for visiting North Wales is to find the home of your dreams, why not use your home-finding mission to have a fun time to boot? Attractions like Chirk Castle and the Llanfair Slate Caverns are great. And the kids would be sure to enjoy a trip to the Snowdonia Riding Stables.
