The North Wales region

The historical town of Dolgellau is situated in the southern, less busy part of the Snowdonia National Park. North Wales is famed for its scenery and has been the backdrop for numerous films including First Knight (1995), Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958), various Bond films and Tomb Raider (2003). It is the place where the mountains meet the sea and neither are far away. The climate is temperate, can be both rainy and windy due to its mountaineous terrain, whilst the sun never stays away for too long. There are various attractions from zoos (Colwyn Bay Mountain Zoo), and Farm Parks to Steam Trains, Cultural Festivals and Agricultural Shows. Absolutely unrivalled walking, climbing and cycling country.

Brithdir

Penybryn is conveniently situated close to the historical market town of Dolgellau and its amenities (2 miles, 10 minutes approx) and the beaches at Barmouth and Fairbourne (20 minutes approx).

Also, just 15 minutes’ walk across country is the beautifully refurbished Cross Foxes Hotel where you are sure to receive a warm welcome from the new owners.

Local attractions in the surrounding area include walking and cycling (Sustrans route 8 a stone’s throw away from house), fishing, mountain biking, numerous narrow gauge railways, romantic castles and the Italianite village of Portmeirion where the cult series The Prisoner was filmed.
