The North Wales region
Situated at the edge of the Southern Snowdonia region. This is much less well known than the northern part but in our opinion is more unspoilt and beautiful. Two of the highest mountains nearby (3000 ft) - Cadair Idris and Aran Fawddwy (latter visible from property) - both make great walks with Cadair Idris being very popular if you want company. The Dyfi Forest is on the opposite side of the valley - this is a massive area with no roads and only has forest tracks and cycle/footpaths so is great for exploration and you are unlikely to see other people although lots of interesting history - old slate workings, buildings etc.
There are several nice sandy beaches within 1/2 hour drive including Aberdyfi and Barmouth.
