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.

Set in a stunning riverside location in over 2 acres of landscaped grounds, including a private pathway to Aberglaslyn Gorge, these lovely old cottages are only 6 miles from sandy beaches and close to many magnificent natural features of the Snowdonia National Park. Holiday activities to enjoy include horse riding, river fishing (on the doorstep, licence required) as well as walking, mountaineering, rock climbing, canoeing and bird-watching. These properties are also 5 minutes’ walk from Nantmor Halt on the Welsh Highland Railway with trains to Beddgelert, Caernarfon and Porthmadog.
Sea fishing, sailing and swimming can be enjoyed from sandy beaches near the harbour town of Porthmadog (6 miles), which is also home to the famous Ffestiniog Railway, and a golf course nearby at Morfa Bychan, which also has a long, golden sandy beach with sublime views down to Harlech and up to the peaks of Snowdonia. Porthmadog also boasts a maritime museum and a car museum.
Llanberis is home to the Mountain Railway terminus, from where trains make the 5-mile journey up the side of Snowdon, to the café at the summit. Nearby Beddgelert is an enchanting village huddled amidst some majestic mountain scenery, famous for the legend of Prince Llywelyn and his faithful hound.
Extravagant and Italianate Portmeirion is a short drive away near the Morfa Harlech Nature Reserve. The setting for The Village in the 1960s cult TV series The Prisoner, endangered buildings from all over the world were broken down, transported and rebuilt, to create a wildly eclectic ensemble.

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.
