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.

Guests to Gwynfryn Farm have access to a superb, indoor swimming pool complex with a sauna and Jacuzzi. As well as the swimming pool, there is a fitness room, LTA tennis court, a football pitch and an inside play area for the under 5s.

These are usually held on either a Monday or Tuesday evening (weather dependant).

Pwllheli’s beaches are mainly south facing; Glan y Mor Beach is sandy and sheltered near the marina, and South Beach is mainly shingle and pebble, and stretches the length of the attractive promenade, with a play area and skate park nearby. Spend the day walking the many miles of coastal walks, watch seals basking on the rocks, visit Pwllheli’s marina, play golf at one of the many courses close by, spend the day walking in Snowdonia National Park or visit the Iron Age hill fort.
    Porthmadog is just 13 miles from Pwllheli and Caernarfon is 21 miles away. With its charming houses and breathtaking views, Portmeirion is about a 30-minute drive from Gwynfryn Farm.
