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.

Two beautiful, well-presented holiday properties, ideally located near the harbour with private parking, and within walking distance of the shops, pubs and restaurants. Each property, one of a row, has its own sitting-out area on the second floor. The seaside resort of Barmouth in north west Wales lies on the wide estuary of the River Mawddach in Cardigan Bay.

It is ideal for walking, mountain walking, cycling, golf and bird watching. The expansive beach at Barmouth allows plenty of space for children to play ball games, dig in the sand, sunbathe or play in the shallow waters. The Italianate village of Portmeirion is a pleasant 11 mile drive along the coast, passing the well-preserved Harlech Castle along the way. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

Ty Mawr Ref: OCC

Dramatic views across Cardigan Bay to the distant mountain range of the Snowdonia National Park form an attractive backdrop for this idyllically located, spacious 18th-century house. Owned by the same family for many generations, it is comfortable and has been carefully maintained to offer a high standard of holiday accommodation, and stands amid its own mature, well-tended gardens with views over a man-made lake stocked with fish . Full of charm and character, it adjoins another property, yet is completely self-contained with a separate driveway. There is a small detached holiday cottage also within the grounds for two people to let by owners.
The sheltered southern coast of the Lleyn Peninsula harbours a wealth of sandy beaches and coves; the nearest being a mere ¾ mile away. Here a temperate climate offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities; sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing facilities abound, and there are some beautiful walking paths along the shore. Some of Wales’ best beaches are to be found an easy drive away at the tip of the Peninsula; Abersoch and Aberdaron in particular offer wide sandy stretches popular with watersports enthusiasts. Just over a mile away, lies the coastal town of Criccieth, where there is a sandy beach at low tide and a 13th-century castle perched on a rocky headland. Across the bay the dramatically located Harlech Castle stands as another testament to more turbulent times. For shopping, good dining and a weekly street market, visit the bustling port town of Pwllheli (6 miles), while the holiday centre of Porthmadog has a wide range of facilities for rock climbing, riding, canoeing and fishing. From here it is an easy drive to visit the beautiful Italianate village of Portmeirion, with its forest walks, gardens and sandy beach. For a novel mode of transport along the coastline, hop aboard the Blaenau Ffestiniog Narrow-Gauge Railway, which still operates on a line first opened in 1836. Excellent walking and mountaineering locally. Five golf courses nearby (negotiated rates for local course). Horse riding nearby. Shops 1¼ miles.
