The North Wales region
Harlech is within the Snowodonia National Park, a beautiful area of small villages, mountains, woods. moorland, farmland and beaches in North Wales. The region was settled by the Celts originally and the Welsh language is widely spoken. The valleys and mountains are full of the evidence of the ancient past of this area with stone circles, cromlechs (ancient burial mounds) and the remains of old dwellings.
As with all mountainous areas, the weather can be variable however, both summer and winter are often beautiful with clear blue skies and temperatures in the summer reaching the high 20s. The coastal strip has a weather pattern that is vastly different from that in the higher areas and while the mountains are cloaked in cloud, the coast can be sunny.
In winter the place really comes into its own with vast empty beaches and quiet roads. It rarely snows on the coastal strip however the mountains can be a different matter.
The area around Harlech contains a vast number of interesting places to visit. The slate mines at Llanfair a couple of miles along the road and a larger version in what was once the slate capital of the world at Blaenau Ffestiniog allow you to see the vast scale on which slate was mined in this area and the skilful way in which the product was manipulated to produce the roofing material that was exported around the world.
Steam train enthusiasts love the area with the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways both running a spectacular and mountainous route to adjoining places of interest from their base at Porthmadog. On a smaller scale, the Fairbourne Railway plies a coastal route from the village out onto the dunes.
Barnmouth and Porthmadog are bustling towns with lots of shops, cafes, restaurants and the like. Both towns have fantastic beaches close by and Black Rock Sands, a watersports enthusiast's paradise is a short drive from Porthmadog. The entire area has so many beaches that even in the height of summer you will have no problem finding an empty one. Take a picnic, make a beach fire and watch dolphins and seals.
A bit further on from Porthmadog and you go through the gateway town of Pwllheli and onto the Lleyn Peninsular. This is a vastly different area, sticking out into the sea, largely treeless in direct contrast to the heavily wooded mainland area; at the end of the peninsular you can take a boat, weather permitting, from the lovely little fishing village of Aberdaron out to Bardsey Island, a place of pilgrimage for early Christians.

"Location not as expected but a nice apartment"
Very deceptive location, because from the description given you imagine it to be very picturesque and close to the center of Harlech which it isn't. It is located in a rundown housing estate whic… More
The photos provide an accurate view of the development and it is well maintained by dedicated groundsmen. The map shows where it is in relation to the village centre. It is dark at night but that's because we're in a small village in the countryside. Many of our guests comment on how wonderful it is to be able to see a vast array of stars, more than some people have ever seen before. There are street lights on the development but they are kept to a necessary minimum and if you escape to Snowdonia to get away from light pollution you will be very pleased with your choice.
Google maps gives the distance from the development to the castle in the centre of the village to be 0.53 of a mile. It is a very steep hill but the view from the top makes it all worthwhile. It takes me about ten minutes to walk up to the village but with children it may well take longer. There are car parks in the village for those who don't want to walk and a regular bus service runs along the main road a short walk from the development.
