The North Wales region

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.


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.

"Fantastic Holiday"

This was our first stay in Mihangel we have stayed in the village now for the last 8 years. It is central to the places we like to visit.We were not disappointed with our change in accommodation. It is so close to the beach, railway station, park and the pub. Debbie welcomed us as we arrived and we also had a look at the joining rental as she was cleaning it. Both rentals are lovely with everything you need. We had all four children with us this year the eldest being 19 and the youngest 8 and we managed to keep them all happy and entertained. There were games for them to play and a lovely dinning area for us all to sit together. Bedding and towels are provided. There was a washing machine and also a good sized freezer. A lovely family stayed next to us for the week and the shared parking area meant that we got to know each other. There is alot of information in the upstairs living area about local places of interest. The local pub is a nice place to have a meal, its advisable to book a table. Our holiday was fantastic the only downside was that it went far too quickly.

Thank you so much, Katy, for all your kind words and I am so pleased that you all had a lovely holiday. It is so important to me that my guests have all that they need and enjoy their stay. I hope to see you again.

"Beautiful accommodation, we were left wanting for nothing."

The accommodation was more than ample, light, clean and airy and still managing to cozy and comfortable. Very close to near by park/play area and short walk to near by beach and local train station if you wanted to leave the car behind for the day. There is space for off road parking and even though where was guests in the adjoining accommodation, the lay out is such that we were never disturbed by them. We loved that we were able to have all 16 family members that were in the area all able to sit down to Sunday roast together. Everything we needed was there, cooker, pots/pans even a dishwasher! could not rate this place highly enough. Would definitely come back and recommend.

Thank you David for your review. I am so pleased that you and the family found Mihangel a good place to get your family together and that you were not disappointed with the facilities. It has come along way since you attended Sunday School in that building! I look forward to seeing you return when you next have a family gathering.

"Excellent location, cosy place!"

We travelled up as a group of 7, which can normally make it a bit hard to find a place to stay. However, this place was perfect - it was convenient, easy to find at night, cosy yet spacious enough for all of us. Though we did not manage to meet Debbie personally (we were only up for the weekend), she was extremely helpful in arranging the booking and making sure that the cottage was fully stocked and welcoming. When we left, one of us left some things behind by mistake, and Debbie (without prompting) found them, and offered to mail them back to us. I would definitely recommend this place and Debbie!

Thank you for your review, Russell. I am so pleased that you were all comfortable, and enjoyed your visit to South Snowdonia. You travelled a long way from London for just two nights, but you evidently achieved what you set out to do, which was to go up Snowdon (little clues left with printed routes up the mountain!). I hope that now you have seen this beautiful area, that perhaps may consider tackling Cader Idris in the future, which is very close by. Or any of the other mountains in the area, of which we have no shortage! You will be most welcome if you want to stay again, available all around the year!

"Lovely location, extra helpful owners, fantastic clean property"

Mihangel is a relatively new former church building conversion (it is almost chapel shaped but was first a church school. There is a plaque outside showing it was a church school in 1831). Very well done with the open plan large living area upstairs and two bedrooms and lovely shower rooms downstairs. Mihangel is half of the conversion with the other half being a sister property Myfanwy. The outside space is shared with Myfanwy so you may need to socialise if you wish to use the space: we had a nice family in Myfanwy who played football with our over-active 4 year old! The owners Peter and Debbie will do everything to make sure your stay is as you want. They live locally in the village and were easily contactable. They left us a fantastic welcome pack of food essentials. The property is situated just off the A493 which may worry you. However it really is a quiet road with very little traffic, even on a summer holiday week. The village itself is very historic with houses dating back to 1700 and a local shop open morning and afternoon (and all day in the summer). Lots of different routes to the sea (10 minutes at 2 year old pace) and a 5 minute walk to the railway station. Two minutes walk to a lovely play park. Everything you need to cook good family meals can be found upstairs in the kitchen which is part of the open plan area. We had a fantastic week of beach weather. The weather was so hot we deliberately headed to Corris one day to go underground in 10C of blissful cool. My favourite beach was the local Llwyngwril sandy bit which is a walk of 600 yards north along the road and then another 600 yards across the stones. Hard work but well worth it as we mostly had the area to ourselves or shared with one other family! Sandy beaches are more easily accessible by car and Fairbourne is a short but beautiful drive away. Our best hols in years. Probably a lot to do with the weather but Mihangel played its part.

Thank you for your review and kind comments about the accommodation and the village (and us!).it is wonderful when our guests have enjoyed their experience at Mihangel or Myfanwy, and also the beach, which we love too. I have tried to anticipate most needs and so it is great to hear that you found it well equipped. There are plans afoot to give a separate seating area for Mihangel, and aim to achieve this as soon as possible, to afford a bit more privacy. Guests can still socialize if they wish. Perhaps you may wish to return to Llwyngwril, and you will all be most welcome if you do! Just let us know.
