The North Wales region
Southern Snowdonia is the best kept secret in Wales, where the mountains meet the sea, but not overrun by tourists. Cadair Idris is the 3rd highest peak in Wales with the summit offering breathtaking views of the sea and seemingly endless surrounding mountain ranges. The haunting Mawddach Estuary and miles of deserted, sandy beaches still exist where you can walk for hours and see just a few others, usually with a friendly nod and a wave.
World Heritage site, Harlech Castle, and the famous village of Portmeirion, set of the TV series, The Prisoner, and are both within a short drive of Coed Stable. The Centre of Alternative Technology near Machynlleth, offers solutions to some of the most serious challenges facing our planet and the human race, such as climate change, pollution and the waste of precious resources. A stop at the Corris Craft Centre along the way is not to be missed with ten individual workshops from unique Celtic and contemporary jewellery to ceramics and rustic furniture.
For a bit of adventure, the Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre offers some of the best trails in Europe and hosts a Go Ape rope and tree-top adventure. Water activities abound with the National Whitewater Centre just an hour away at Tryweryn near Bala, seakyaking on the Mawddach Estuary with Up 4 Adventures in Dolgellau, and various chartered fishing and sea tours running from Barmouth pier.
The picturesque market towns of Dolgellau and Machynlleth, along with the bustling harbour town of Barmouth and the charming seaside village of Aberdyfi, offer plenty of civilisation - if any is needed! All have cafes, music, seafood restaurants, galleries and antiques. You can always enjoy a night of special music at Ty Siamas in Dolgellau, the National Centre for Welsh Folk Music.
There are many fantastic walks within a few miles of Coed Stable. The Torrent Walk is a short distance away running through a beautiful wooded gorge with stunning waterfalls along the spectacular fall of the Clywedog River. The Cregennan Lakes in the foothills of Cadair Idris have views of the sea and Barmouth, alternatively a lovely circular walk round the Gwernan Lake with a bar snack or a drink at the charming Gwernen Hotel on the route. while the famous Precipice and New Precipice Walks are both cliff-top walks with unrivaled views of Cadair Idris and the Mawddach Estuary. For a beautifully scenic and less arduous walk or cycle ride try the Mawddach Trail, a former railway line that runs all the way from Dolgellau to Barmouth along the stunning Mawddach Estuary. Take a break and have a drink or a meal along this gentle 11 mile route at the George III pub, a former railway station in Penmaenpool
Don't feel like cooking? - treat yourselves to a gourmet meal at the Mawddach Restaurant (advance booking recommended) or if you want to leave the car, the recently renovated Cross Foxes pub is less than a mile away. Or, if you fancy a bit of old world charm, historic Penmaenuchaf and Dolserau Halls both offer a cafe and dinner service to non-residents. Dolgellau has it's own good restaurants, try Dylanwad da which is featured in the good food guide or the very friendly and cosy Y Meirionnydd which serves some wonderful local foods (booking recommended)
