West Point Beach Resort provides a warm welcome to their residents and is the perfect place for those seeking peace and quiet, with the most stunning views of Snowdonia to admire. The holiday park provides a range of holiday homes and waterfront lodges, with the most scenic of views outside of your window. The service delivered when on site is excellent, with the team providing over 55 years of experience.
Although the holiday park itself offers a vast array of activities from fishing and mountain walks to name a few, there’s a whole range of activities within the local area. If you enjoy your food and like to discover different cultures, then you’ll be amazed by what North Wales has to offer this year! You can try new foods and challenge your taste buds by visiting numerous Food Festivals across the region. West Point Beach Resort is only a short commute by car to a handful of those featured in this Top 10 Food Festivals 2015 listing.
Wrexham Food and Drink Festival | Starting on May 16th for two days, Wrexham are holding a Food and Drink Festival in aid of Nightingale House.

The weekend will see live entertainment from music to various performances, as well as cookery demonstrations and workshops for those who wish to participate.
Menai Seafood Festival | Seafood may not be on the top of everybody’s list for meal choice, but this year’s seafood festival hopes to beat last year’s attendance of over 25,000 people. The event brings cooking demonstrations, local produce and music from the town’s brass band and is only a short 15 minute drive from West Point. The event brings great atmosphere for everyone who visits and celebrates North Wales’s coastal heritage, alongside endorsing the array of seafood that is available around the shores of Anglesey.

Conwy Honey Fair | The Honey Fair in Conwy will take over the high street and Lancaster Square on September 14th, which is the Monday from 9am-4pm. This event is a great opportunity for local beekeepers to sell honey, for the public to meet those who make the best honey in town and also for others to learn more about how the honey is produced.

Anglesey Oyster Produce Festival | Oyster’s aren’t for everyone, but this year’s Oyster Festival in Anglesey has been named “fantastic” by a festival spokeswoman last year.

You can sample the goods provided by local producers and find out more ways than one of incorporating oysters into your evening dishes.
Hamper Llangollen | October 17th-18th will see the 18th anniversary of Llangollen’s annual event. There will be samples of various foods to try and producers to engage with and find out more about where they get their ingredients from and perhaps find out their recipes to certain dishes.
Gwledd Conwy Feast | If you want to visit a food festival that offers much more than the food itself, then Gwledd Conwy Feast is the one to go to. Last year saw fireworks and fire juggling take place along the river, with spectators stood amazed by the events. This year will see more than 15 food stalls with tips from Wales’ best chefs, music and art.
