The North Wales region

Close to the Snowdonia National Park, Aberdovey is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Whatever you are into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore.

The region of Wales is without doubt a "hidden gem" with some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. This is a walker's paradise with Cader Idris just a few minutes' drive away! Snowdon is only 60 minutes by car and the beautiful Coed Y Brenin Wood with miles of mountain bike & walking tracks is just 30 minutes' drive.

Don't worry if you're not the active type, the effortless Mawddach Trail, featured in Julia Bradbury's 'Great Railway Walks' program, is accessible to everyone and takes you on a journey along one of the UK's most spectacular estuaries, brimming with wildlife.

There are miles of beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches, as well as many local attractions, such as the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, which steams from Tywyn up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls. Just a few miles around the stunning Talyllyn Lake towards Corris, is the world renowned

'Centre for Alternative Technology' (CAT). which is a fascinating place to visit and learn. Close to CAT is The Corris Craft Centre and King Arthur's Labyrinth, another must-visit place.

Cadair Idris, or to use its anglicised title of Cader Idris, derives its name meaning 'Chair of Idris' from the giant warrior poet of Welsh legend.

The mountain looms menacing and primeval over the surrounding landscape. Cadair Idris consists of a massive 11km long ridge and although only the 19th highest mountain in Wales, is the second most popular mountain in the country after Mount Snowden.

Snowdon is shrouded in legend, and is reputed to be the burial place of the giant ogre Rhita, vanguished by the famous King Arthur. The mountain is home to a number of rare flowers and insects, including Sundew, an insectivorous plant.

The Snowdon Railway can be taken to the summit, from where there are panoramic views.

The railway began over a hundred years ago, the idea of an enterprising group of businessman. Work commenced to a Swiss design in 1894, the rack and pinion railway, which has a gradient of 20% was opened in 1896.

Harlech Castle perches on a two hundred feet rock above the town of Harlech. The castle is a World Heritage inscribed site, founded by King Edward I in 1283, during his second campaign in North Wales, as one of an iron ring of fortresses to subdue the Welsh.

Aberdovey, Aberdyfi

The small Welsh seaside resort Aberdovey huddles along its quayside. Aberdyfi, to give it its Welsh spelling, is situated where the River Dovey meets Cardigan Bay.

Aberdovey also boasts an 18 hole links championship golf course.

The nearby marshes on the southern side of estuary, which encompasses a range of wildlife habitats, are owned by the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and contain a variety of wildfowl and migrant wading birds. The RSPB Ynyshir Reserve has over 70 species of breeding birds. The RSPB has installed excellent hides with views over the salt marshes.
