Portmeirion, Gwynedd, LL48 6ER
Built on its own wooded peninsula, Portmeirion is an architectural extravaganza, a collection of buildings brought together into a fantasy village like no other by the eccentric Welsh architect, Clough Williams-Ellis. Sir Clough believed architecture should be fun, but he always intended Portmeirion to pay for itself, which is why almost every door in this village opens into a hotel suite. The choice on offer is wide – ranging from a Regency terrace to a wooden cladded Scandinavian boathouse. There are 30 to choose from. Visitors can also stay in the 14-room hotel on the shore, which has log fires and a superb new dining room overlooking the Mawdach Estuary.
A nice welcoming touch is the decanter of sherry waiting in your room but the best thing about staying at Portmeirion is having the village to yourself after the tourists have gone home.

Hotel Portmeirion is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"You couldn’t get nearer the beach than this stunning beach-side location with its amazing architecture and sub tropical gardens. Its art deco style dinning room overlooking the bay fits the hottest theme of the moment - The Great Gatsby - whilst for ceremonies the opulent mirror room with its floor to ceiling windows is amazing. To complete the picture there are steps leading down from the grounds to the beach."
"Festival No6 PORTMEIRION, 13-15 September. Portmeirion is a fantasy village built by the Welsh architect Clough Williams Ellis. The grand old man used to invite writers and artists to stay in Portmeirion and his grandson, Robin Llywelyn, has recently formalised the village's tradition of artistic patronage by creating its own arts festival. The name Festival No6 comes from The Prisoner TV series which was filmed in Portmeirion. This is the only British festival held in a hotel and what a hotel it is. Each room is located inside a building put together from Sir Clough’s eclectic imagination."
"Sir Clough Williams-Ellis began work on his own private village in 1926, salvaging old buildings and creating theatrical facades in a style he called “architectural mongrel”. The eccentric architect always intended Portmeirion to be self-financing, so it’s long been a hotel and entertained the likes of Noel Coward and Patrick McGoohan, who filmed The Prisoner here. Old episodes of this series play on Channel 801 in every room."
