The North Wales / Snowdonia/Gwynedd region
Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. The Snowdonia National Park, situated in North Wales, boasts breathtaking mountain scenery, crystal clear lakes and cascading waterfalls. Climb Snowdon, which at 1085m is Wales highest mountain, or travel to the summit in style on the charming Mountain Railway. Nearby is Cader Idris , Wales second highest peak, great to climb and attracts less visitors. Alternatively, why not sample the beautiful green valley of Llangollen by steam train or from a leisurely horse-drawn canal boat. .You could also explore the beautiful coastline, safe sandy beaches and watersports of the Lleyn Peninsula,. Barmouth is our nearest beach , approx 30 mins drive. istoric Conwy, Victorian Llandudno or the Isle of Anglesey on the north coast are approx an hour and a half away by car.To the south, there's the lovely Brecon Beacons National Park, a haven of rugged moorland, forests and mountains that's just perfect for nature lovers and walkers. Finally, this area is well known for its many narrow guage steam railways, a perfect way to explore this beautiful land.
The Dolgellau / Brithdir area
Dolgellau is an ancient market town with links going back to gold mining in the surrounding hills. It still has a Farmers Market every month where you can buy wonderful local produce and a genuine stock market weekly. if the weather stops your outdoor pursuits you can spend time browsing around the quaint local shops and enjoy a meal in one of the many good eateries in the town. Dolgellau has a good 9 hole golf course & Bala nearby has golf, an excellant swimming pool and sailing on the lake. For extreme sports , try white water rafting or rock climbing. The Cycle Path down the estuarry to Barmouth, where you cycle over the famous Barmouth Bridge is argDolgellau sits on the south bank of the Wnion River at the foot of Cader Idris, (Cadair Idris) in the south of the Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd, West Wales. The area has long been known for its walks, with rocky crags, clear streams and cascading waterfalls. The rich wildlife includes red squirrels, pine-marten, otters and deer, as well as goshawks and goosander.
The Forest Park in Coed y Brenin is world renowned for it's fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails. There is a restaurant and cycle shop (sales, repair, and hire) on the site and information on the many forest trails is to be found at the Visitor Centre.
Walking around Dolgellau and seeing the monumental chimney stacks, weird shaped roofs, the thick granite walls and the higgledy-piggledy street layout you could be forgiven for believing that Dolgellau was designed by the Brother's Grimm of fairy tale renown.
Dolgellau has a great future as both a cultural centre and as a tourist centre especially with the ever growing popularity of activity holidays. Climbers and hill walkers take advantage of the town's proximity to Cadair Idris, mountain bike riders visit the town for the world-class mountain bike trails available in the Coed y Brenin Forest, and bird watchers and nature lovers can't help but appreciate the beauty of the Mawddach estuary and the wild but beautiful countryside. Horse riding, angling, and white water rafting are other popular sports for visitors to Dolgellau.
Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities
There is "no better walk than from Barmouth through to Dolgellau other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth" the views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary are phenomenal. Penmaenpool and the Mawddach Estuary: Penmaenpool is some two miles from Dolgellau. The Mawddach estuary is a beautiful place for a walk or indeed a bike ride. The trail is some eight miles long leading to the railway bridge at Barmouth. For nature lovers and bird spotters there are two RSPB reserves in the Mawddach Valley, the Arthog and the Coed Garth Gell. Coed Garth Gell offers superb scenery and beautiful walks through oak woodland. In the spring, pied flycatchers, wood warblers, and redstarts can be seen and heard. Different types of warblers, reed buntings, and water rails can be seen at Arthog. Ravens and buzzards occur all year.
Precipice Walk: The Precipice walk is some three miles north east from Dolgellau. Although this is an upland walk it is on fairly level ground. Starting in woodland the walk soon opens up to splendid panoramas of Snowdonia, the Coed y Brenin Forest, the Rhinog mountains, the beautiful valley of the Afon Mawddach and finally Cadair Idris itself.
Torrent Walk: The Torrent Walk is some three miles east of Dolgellau running close to the River Clywedog. The ubiquitous ferns and mosses carpet the valley in a rich emerald green, massive boulders and tumbling waterfalls suggest the name of this walk.
Coed y Brenin Forest Park: Nine miles north of Dolgellau, Coed y Brenin has long been known for it's walks, with rocky crags and clear streams crashing over waterfalls. The rich wildlife includes red squirrels, pine-marten, otters and deer, as well as goshawks and goosander. Today the Forest Park is world renowned for it's fantastic network of Mountain Bike Trails. There is a restaurant and cycle shop (sales, repair, and hire) on the site and information on the many forest trails is to be found at the Visitor Centre.
Welsh history buffs might also like to know that Dolgellau was the location, in 1404, of Owain Glyndwr's last Welsh Parliament. Moreover, Dolgellau has another connection with Welsh Princes. Welsh gold has always been valued from Roman times to the present day and Dolgellau was the focus of the Welsh gold rush of the 19th Century.

This was our first holiday at Christmas, and what an amazing time we had. The hosts were so helpful and welcoming. The log cabin was fantastic. The location was superb, so peaceful, and so close to Dolgellau for shops. The bed was so comfortable, high standard of cleanliness, and spoilt with sauna & hot tub. We have never experienced such a relaxing holiday. Superb walks and scenery nearby. We will definitely be returning to Wnion Wood in the near future, and recommending it to our family & friends. Ereca & Phil should be very proud of their log cabin. Thank you both so much for making Christmas 2012 a holiday to remember.
