About this location
The Gwynedd region
Located in The Snowdonia National Park, Arthog is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Whatever you're into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore.
This 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.
Don't worry if you're not the active type, the flat & 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 away is the Barmouth & Tywyn beaches, also stunning lakes & waterfalls. 15 minutes away towards Corris, is the world renowned 'Centre for Alternative Technology' or (CAT) which is a fascinating place to visit and learn. Close to CAT is The Corris Craft Centre and King Arthurs Labyrinth, another 'must visit' place.
Originally, Barmouth was a tiny hamlet built almost entirely on the rock over-looking the river mouth and frequented by pirates. The sea receded, access improved and a small fishing and ship building industry grew. In the 19th. Century the railway came and Barmouth and almost immediately it embraced tourism and expanded.
Situated on the edge of the Snowdonia national, Barmouth was awarded the Green Coastline award for its clean beach environment and water. There is a great selection of shops eateries and pubs. The mountains for roaming are very close, plus numerous lakes and rivers close by. If you prefer a guided walk the annual walking festival at Barmouth held in September is popular every year.
Barmouth has a sunny west-facing sandy beach. Don't miss the spectacular sunsets over the bay. From early Spring through till Autumn, dolphins and porpoise can be spotted close to the shore, an amazing sight to see! Its not unusual to see them on a daily basis in pods of up to 20. There is level access to the town where there are supermarkets, shops, bistros.
You will find the most glorious ten mile expanse of sandy beaches from Harlech to Barmouth.
Remember to bring your bikes, the cycle routes are fantastic and Coed-y-Brenin has some very interesting daredevil paths to concur.
Visit quaint villages such as Llanbedr, the gateway to Shell Island and Llandanwg with its Celtic church in the sand dunes.
Just a few miles North is the historic town of Harlech with its magnificent castle and golf course.
Don't miss a trip to Llanfair slate mines where "The Last Knight" was filmed, learn how hard the colliers of Yesteryear worked. Portmeirion village, just 30 mins drive is gorgeous, (the Italian style village where The Prisoner was filmed).
Barmouth certainly has a lot to offer, with an attractive and lively Harbour area; spectacular scenery especially The Mawddach one of the most beautiful estuaries in the world; birthplace of The National Trust and a walkers paradise. The Barmouth Bridge, built by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the views. The bridge doubles as a footpath & cycle route giving spectacular views up the estuary towards Cader Idris. Queen Victoria once stopped her train to admire the view! One the way back stop to eat at The Last Inn, Bistro Burma or Davey Jones Locker are particularly good.
The town hosts 4 festivals. In July there is Country & Western and a Kite Flying Festival. 1st. week in September there's an Art Festival and for 9 days around the 3rd. week there is a very popular Walking Festival catering for all abilities. The local Theatre holds events throughout the year but the most popular is a Jazz/Soul/Folk evening held every 4th. Friday in a cabaret setting.

"Perfect location with stunning views!"
We stayed in Arthog Hall cottage at the beginning of August. We had a warm welcome from the owners.
The cottage is in the most peaceful location and the views from the garden are stunning. It is close to the wonderful Mawdacch trail; a flat cycle path/ footpath running along the estuary from Barmouth Bridge to Dolgellau . Just behind the cottage you can walk up to some lovely waterfalls and beyond to Cregannon Lake. It's also close to several beaches.
The cottage has 2 double rooms which are beautifully decorated, light and airy and a smaller single room . The cottage is clean and comfortable and has wifi too.

"Enchanting Experience !"
Enchanting experience from the moment we arrived. On approaching the hall we were warmly greeted by our hosts and shown to the cosy cottage retreat. Everything was very homely with lovely little touches added. Our hosts were excellent and checked that we had everything we needed to settle in. Every room of the cottage (except the bathroom) has breathtaking views of Barmouth and the Estuary. The garden was beautifully kept and backdropped by stunning seas, skies and mountains. The cottage is a wonderfully situated base to make the most of any holiday. Great walking, clean beaches, shops and markets all within easy reach. But the the most magical part of our time here was finding the hidden waterfall and woodland walk just at the end of the gated drive. Enchanting and enjoyed by all.
