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 stunning Talyllyn Lake. 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.

The ancient market town of Dolgellau is situated in the spectacular scenery of Southern Snowdonia National Park. The town is close to Cader Idris Mountain and on the Wnion River, a tributary of the stunning Mawddach estuary. The town has a rich heritage with over 200 listed buildings forming the centre. The community benefits from a great variety of shops, restaurants and amenities within Dolgellau including a doctors, dentists and hospital.

There are good bus services to the other local towns and good local railway connections from Barmouth or Fairbourne along the glorious Cambrian Coastal route. Tourism is an important and growing industry for the area. Cader Idris attracts climbers from all over the UK. Miles of sandy beaches, boating and water sports are close by at Barmouth & Fairbourne. The surrounding area is known for its wild but beautiful countryside and places of historical interest, which provide the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities such as mountain biking, walking, horse riding, fishing, white-water rafting and climbing,

The Mawddach trail was recently featured in Julia Bradbury's ' Great Railway Walks 'documentary. 'Go Ape' have recently opened an outdoor adventure centre at Coed Y Brenin, just a short drive from the centre of the town. Nature Lovers are well catered for here, with the RSPB nature reserve situated in the nearby Mawddach Valley.

The town, with its restaurants, cafes & shops, is just a few minutes' walk away and the beaches in Barmouth and Fairbourne are a short drive. Cader Idris and other spectacular walks are right on the doorstep. Base yourself at our stunning holiday home, relax in comfort and enjoy the delights of this beautiful part of Snowdonia.
