Find cottages in GwyneddVisit Gwynedd

Gwynedd in North West Wales has an untouched mountainous and coastal landscape, which includes the magnificent Snowdonia National Park and a coastline of sandy beaches that face out over the Irish Sea. An area of great natural beauty and the perfect antidote to our busy, hectic lives!

The region is sparsely populated and has a rich and colourful history that dates back to 5th century Britain; a magical kingdom to explore, filled with history, heritage, eye-watering views and fantastic attractions. Here you'll find towering mountains and fast flowing rivers, ancient forests and tranquil valleys, fascinating castles and quiet beaches.

There's plenty to see and do; a great way to get a feel for the area is to travel on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways which takes you 13 miles from Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog and a 25 mile journey from Caernarfon through the foothills of Snowdon, respectively.

While you may see many of Gwynedd's attractions en-route many of them are worth stopping for. The castle at Caernarfon is just one such attraction. Looming magnificently over the town the 700-year-old castle is in fantastic condition and offers a truly atmospheric visitor experience. Make sure you check out the views too! The Welsh Slate Mine paints a fascinating picture of Gwynedd's industrial history. This may sound a bit dry but it's actually a fun and interesting way to learn about the beautiful landscape that surrounds you and well worth a few hours of your time.

Garden lovers should head for some high-altitude garden delights at Wales' highest garden, the Caerau Uchaf open gardens with a pet's corner and adventure playground for the children. Also of interest is the seaside garden, Sunningdale, at Amlwch; a wild area with beaches, caves, cliffs and wildflowers.

And of course no trip to Gwynedd would be complete without a ramble in the Snowdonia National Park so get on your walking boots and you'll be rewarded with some of the most stunning scenery in Britain.

If you're ready to begin your adventure take a look at our our selection of holiday cottages in Gwynedd.

Treetops Ref: OSK

Bursting with charm and elegance, this exceptional, detached property boasts its own private indoor heated swimming pool, decked area and landscaped gardens, all of which enjoy the magnificent views overlooking the Cardigan Bay coastline and Cader Idris mountain range. Its semi-isolated position, accessed by an unmade farm track, means it lies high above the village of Arthog with mountain and sea views and makes it a truly relaxing holiday retreat.
The area is the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park and has plenty of attractions to suit all ages and tastes nearby. Award-winning beaches surround the area with their clean bathing and golden sands. Golf enthusiasts can try their hand at Fairbourne, approximately 2 miles.
Nearby Dolgellau was subject to several gold rushes in the 1860s, when small amounts were found in the estuary, drawing hopeful prospectors from afar. Although some of the quartz veins did yield an amount of the precious metal, the source was short lived. At Bontddu, a few miles west of Dolgellau, gold extracted from that source was used for both the Queen’s wedding ring, and that of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Today the town comes alive in mid July during the Sesiwn Fawr, when a series of bands and musical activities take place in pubs and open-air stages. For walkers, Dolgellau makes a good base for a number of wonderful walks, including hikes up the magnificent Cader Idris or more gentle ambles along the Mawddach Estuary. Horse riding and train rides along the coast are available locally; not to be missed are the Creggenan Lakes. Other attractions include King Arthur’s Labyrinth in Corris, near Machynlleth, where an underground boat takes visitors into the spectacular caverns under the Braichgoch mountain, accompanied by light and sound effects. The Corris craft centre offers a delight of local crafts, including jewellery, pottery, turned wood, leather goods and candles amongst others. Other places of interest include the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Talyllyn Railway, the unusual Italianate village of Portmeirion and the lively seaside town of Barmouth with its pretty harbour, great beach and seafood. Snowdonia is just under 1 hour away.
