The North Wales region
Close to The Snowdonia National Park, the village of Bryn Crug is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you want. 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 and the beautiful Coed Y Brenin Wood, with miles of mountain bike & walking tracks is just 30 minutes drive.
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 to laze upon, as well as many local attractions such as on the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, which steams from Tywyn, up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls. Just a few miles around the stunning Talyllyn Lake 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.
5 Minutes away..... Tywyn has a sunny west facing 'Blue Flag' sandy beach. Don't miss the spectacular sunsets over the bay. From early Spring through till Autumn, dolphins and porpoise can be spotted close to the shore, an amazing sight to see! It's not unusual to see them on a daily basis in pods of up to 20. Tywyn is possibly the only place on the West Coast where you can park for FREE virtually right on the beach. There is level access to the town where there are supermarkets, shops, cafes, banks, a post office, cinema, health centre, cottage hospital, several churches, leisure centre and an indoor swimming pool. Just 5 minutes drive is the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey, with the famous Aberdovey Golf Course plus several good restaurants & pubs.
For watersport enthusiasts and visitors with families, uncrowded, sweeping, sandy beaches can be found in Tywyn or Aberdovey just a few minutes' drive from the cottage. Depending on the conditions, Tywyn is a focal point for surfers & kayakers. Aberdovey is a well known wind surfing & sailing centre. Jet skiers are welcome in both resorts. Fishing trips can be arranged in Tywyn & Aberdovey all year round.
This area is full of history dating back to pre-historic times. Just get slightly off the beaten track on the dozens of public footpaths and you will come across standing stones, stone circles, abandoned farmhouses, castles & ancient churches.
Places within a just few miles of Cefn Coed NOT TO MISS:
Aberdovey, lovely old fishing village, GOLF & SAILING haven, with many good restaurants, pubs & coffee shops.
St Cadvans Church in Tywyn dating back 1500 years with the Cadvan Stones, which are apparently the oldest known inscriptions of the Welsh language.
Dolgoch Falls, spectacular waterfalls and woodland walk, look out for fairies and witches!
Cregennan Lake near Arthog, stunning location, with views of the Mawddach Estuary.
The Barmouth Bridge, build by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the Mawddach, then explore Barmouth, with excellent beaches and the harbour. There are good shops, numerous coffee shops & pubs. The Last Inn & Davey Jones Locker are particularly good.
Cader Idris & Llyn Cau, most walkers agree is more scenic than Snowdon.
The Bearded Lake above Aberdovey. Mystical place of legends, with amazing view of the Dovey Estuary.
The Dysynni River & reed beds. A wild life haven for, geese, ducks and herons. Fishing with a permit.
Bird Rock. 500 years ago the sea came up to the rock, but the Cormorant still breed here. Also, look out for the ruined Iron Age fort near the top of the rock.
Tal-y-llyn Lake, just beautiful !

"Cosy, peaceful and well equipped."
Stayed in Cefn Coed with partner and 2 girls, 16 & 9. Was ideally placed for coast and mountains with plenty to do in the area (Arthur's Labyrinth, Towyn Railway). The cottage itself was lovely, very well equipped and in a lovely setting. However, my partner was most upset to discover the village pub was closed, but there was enough to keep him occupied in the cottage of an evening with a good selection of books/music/TV. A car is a must to get around, the buses stop early. We got a taxi (£5.00 each way) into Towyn to the Dine India restaurant, which was really nice. We visited Barmouth, Fairbourne and Aberdovey too. Altogether, a calming, peaceful but busy few days, topped off by a BBQ on an almost deserted beach at the mouth of the River Dysynni and watching the sun set.
The pub mentioned in the post is the Peniarth Arms which was taken over and furbished in late summer 2012, by a local couple who run a very successful pub/eatery in Llyngwiral. Its is now fully open with a separate restaurant and we can thoroughly recommended it, being a great asset to the village. Iain Paterson Lounge Holidays.
