About the neighbourhood
This beautiful area has something for all ages: sandy beaches at Barmouth, fishing trips from the harbour , mountain walks from the garden gate, water sports on Lake Bala (35 mins away) off road cycle tracks at Coed y Brennin and along the Mawddach trail. ZIP wire and Wave machine nearby.We suggest the Kittiwake books of Dolgellau, Barmouth and Mawddach for guided walks. Climb Snowdon or the magnificent Cader Idris visible from the house. Sit on the terrace and watch the tide come in and out along the Mawddach estuary. Have a BBQ or stroll across the toll bridge to the George Third pub for a meal. Choice of local restaurants. We think you will want to come back.
Getting around
Local taxi firms and there is a bus stop on the main road at the end of the lane which runs into Barmouth and the other way into Dolgellau. Barmouth also has a train station.
