Location description from manager
The North Wales region
Surrounded by The Snowdonia National Park, Llanaber, just outside Barmouth, is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Whatever you are into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore.
Barmouth certainly has a lot to offer, with an attractive and lively Harbour area; spectacular scenery especially The Mawddach one of the most beautiful estuaries in the world; birthplace of The National Trust and a walkers paradise. The Barmouth Bridge, built by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the views. The bridge doubles as a footpath & cycle route giving spectacular views up the estuary towards Cader Idris.
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 30 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 are not the active type, the 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, as well as many local attractions, such as the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, which steams from Tywyn up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls. Just a few miles past Dolgellau is the stunning Talyllyn Lake. Go towards Corris, to visit 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.

Bounce Below is the world's first subterranean playground of its kind – and it's here in Snowdonia by. The surreal experience of Bounce Below is set within a historic disused slate cavern, installed with massive bouncy nets to jump around in, unlike anything seen before!!
Llanber a lovely Welsh village on the fringe of Barmouth, with fabulous sea and mountain views. Here are miles of beautiful west facing sandy beaches & dunes. Miles of stunning walks, not be missed, the Neolithic tomb at Dyffryn, one of most important in the UK.
Just a few minutes' drive up coast is the historic town of Harlech with its magnificent castle and The Royal St David's golf course which is one of Wales's top golf courses.
Spectacularly sited Harlech Castle seems to grow naturally from the rock on which it is perched. Like an all seeing sentinel, it gazes out across land and sea, keeping a watchful eye over Snowdonia.
The English monarch Edward I built Harlech in 1283. It was one of the most formidable of his 'iron ring' of fortresses designed to contain the Welsh in their mountain fastness. It was captured by Owain Glyndwr in 1404, later becoming the stronghold of Henry Tudor. Ironically, in 1404 it was taken by Welsh leader Owain Glyndwr who proceeded to hold a parliament here. A long siege here during the Wars of the Roses inspired the stirring song 'Men of Harlech'.
Originally the castle was next to the sea but over the years geological changes to the coastline have changed the outline of the shore, so today it stands on a cliff face about half a mile inland. As well as playing a significant role in Welsh history, Harlech is now a busy little tourist attraction, there is a great selection of shops eateries and pubs.
The famous sweeping sandy beach & huge sand dunes running north to Harlech are a favourite destination for families and fun seekers. 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. Also nearby is Llanbedr, the gateway to Shell Island and Llandanwg with its Celtic church in the sand dunes.
Don't miss a trip to Llanfair slate mines where "The Last Knight" was filmed, learn how hard the colliers of Yesteryear worked.
Portmeirion village, just 20 mins drive North is gorgeous, (the Italian style village where The Prisoner was filmed).
The main town in the area is Barmouth, which was originally a tiny hamlet built almost entirely on the rock over-looking the river mouth and frequented by pirates. The sea receded, access improved and a small fishing and ship building industry grew. In the 19th. Century the railway came and Barmouth and almost immediately it embraced tourism and expanded.

“idyllic scenery and setting”
Beautifully situated, on sea front. The cottage is charming and is cosy and secluded nestled out of sight of the main road and with what feels like a private lane straight down to the beach. On which Barmouth centre can be reached in a short walk. Personal highlights include, walks around the town and surrounding area, (the national parks region, snowdonia etc) and the bespoke Barmouth 'murder mystery', which is an imaginative and engrossing tour that has been lovingly created by the owners to introduce you to the more off the beaten path alley's, dry stone walks and landmarks of this charming sea side town. A real gem!
