Location description from owner

The North Wales region

The historical town of Dolgellau is situated in the southern, less busy part of the Snowdonia National Park. North Wales is famed for its scenery and has been the backdrop for numerous films including First Knight (1995), Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958), various Bond films and Tomb Raider (2003). It is the place where the mountains meet the sea and neither are far away. The climate is temperate, can be both rainy and windy due to its mountaineous terrain, whilst the sun never stays away for too long. There are various attractions from zoos (Colwyn Bay Mountain Zoo), and Farm Parks to Steam Trains, Cultural Festivals and Agricultural Shows. Absolutely unrivalled walking, climbing and cycling country.
