Portmeirion is located on a private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay on the coast of Snowdonia.
It is surrounded by woodlands and sandy beaches. The village was built from 1925 to 1976 by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who wanted to show how development could enhance the natural landscape. All the cottages in the village are either part of the Hotel Portmeirion or self-catering cottages. There are several cafes and eight shops. Portmeirion was the location for Patrick McGoohan's "The Prisoner" television series. It is also known for the Portmeirion Pottery, designed by Susan Williams-Ellis. On the main driveway there is a contemporary styled brasserie at Castell Deudraeth which gives free afternoon entry to Portmeirion in the price of a two course lunch. Contains playground and sandy beach for kids to play on.
