South Snowdonia is one of the most beautiful areas, with mountains river valleys and coastline. The nearest mountain range is Cader Idris, which is the second highest mountain in Wales. There are abundant routes for walking to suite all capabilities, and we benefit from being on the Wales Coastal Path. The coastline is served by the Cambrian Coast Railway, which makes getting around the area, simple, and stress free, if you plan your journeys, if driving is part of your day to day life, you will have the opportunity to forget about the car for all or part of your stay. It is also a wonderful way to see the coastline, from the train.
The nature of the region lends itself well to activities, and everything from horse-riding, to white water rafting/canoeing to cycling/mountain biking, and rock climbing is possible here, among others. We have a lot of narrow gauge steam railways: Talyllyn, Fairbourne, Corris, Ffestiniog, Bala, which are very popular with all ages and each one having its own events throughout the year. There are also good Golf Clubs at Fairbourne (18 holes), and Aberdyfi (9 holes).
There are plenty of locally produced foods, which are available in a number of outlets, farmers markets, and restaurants.
Also the area is rich with Art, as the beauty of the area attracts and inspires artists. There are groups of artists who market themselves together as well as as individuals. one such group is CRYD, who exhibit regularly locally. There are a number of Galleries where their work can be seen including in these holiday homes, where work is displayed on the walls, and is for sale, should you like it, or you can visit the artists, as contact details are available too, should you wish to go and see them yourselves..
Work by some of the very local artists who used to exhibit when the building was a Gallery, is displayed in the property and some is for sale.
This area enjoys a micro-climate as the Gulf Steam protects us from harsher weather which may be experienced inland. The coast also has less rainfall than inland.
Llwyngwril is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area, and also provides a peaceful hideaway from a busy life. Our beaches are not heaving with people, even in the height of the season, and you will not get caught in traffic.
The village has a pub and a village shop.
The beach has shingle and if visits and walks to it are planned for low tide, you will find it interesting with lots of rock pools, and expanses of sand. It is common for people to have bonfires on the beach and to watch one of our spectacular sunsets, over a bottle of wine, and food cooked on the fire, or a picnic!
Other lovely beaches in the area are Fairbourne, and Aberdyfi, . and there is one at Tywyn, which at low tide has the ancient forest, which has been uncovered by the storms of early 2014.
There are many standing stones and ley lines which are interesting and also evidence of bronze age and iron age settlements. Llwyngwril has the site of an iron age hill fort, which is protected by Cadw.
There are some beautiful old Churches which are well worth visiting. Llangelynnin, just outside the village is 12th Century with medieval wall paintings and the grave of the Gypsy king. Also in Llanegryn, just about 5 miles away is the church of St Egryn, which has the most beautifully carved rood screen, said to have been carried over the mountains by monks, after the dissolution of the monasteries, from Cymer Abbey, which can be visited just outside Dolgellau.
The Blue Lake is just at Friog (next village up the coast) which is a lovely place for a swim/picnic. It is a disused slate quarry and is full of water.
YOu can walk/cycle across Barmouth Bridge to Barmouth and some of the stunning walks on that side of the estuary, offering views of the mountain range on this side of the Estuary. It is now possible to walk from Fairbourne, just near the Golf Club, along the new flood defences which are dykes recently constructed and improved. This leads to Morfa Mawddach, which is where you can pick up the bridge, and whilst it is good to go by train, it is also a lovely walk along the walkway/cycle path parallel with the railway line.. Morfa Mawddach is also the start of the Mawddach trail, which runs to Dolgellau, along the now defunct railway line. So it is a safe route to cycle from Dolgellau, to Barmouth, Cycle hire is available in a number of places, but you can also bring your own bikes. We have facilities for safe over night storage for you.
The village held its first Yarn Bombing event in 2015, with all kinds of surprises for visitors around the village. There will be a new theme in 2016 and the models will be out from Whitsun onward. The Bunting will go out gradually from Easter. It will all stay in place until the end of October. It is a project by the community to raise money for our local village hall.
There is a shop in the village, which stocks nearly everything you could ever need, fresh dairy products, newspapers, groceries, wines, beers and spirits, confectionery, everything. There are more shops in the neighbouring village of Fairbourne just a couple of miles away, and supermarkets in Tywyn (8 miles) and Dolgellau (11 miles).
