Situated in Gwynedd, this is arguably one of the most beautiful locations in Northwest Wales, sandwiched between a mountain range and the Irish Sea. The higgledy-piggledy village is a jumble of steep cobbled lanes and slate-roofed fishermen's cottages. Its picturesque harbour is the perfect spot to watch the sunset with your loved ones. The tourist information centre is a great place to check out all that is going on in the town, from guided walks to festivals and concerts. The large beach is paradise for those wanting to build award-winning sandcastles or paddle in the shallows whilst rock pooling. In the summer months, there is a funfair to add some extra holiday fun. The Mawddach estuary is ideal if you are wanting to head out on a casual stroll or for a more energetic ramble. Remember your binoculars as the area is a haven for birdwatchers or your camera as there are plenty of opportunities for budding photographers. If you are after a traditional bucket and spade holiday or a place to come and unwind surrounded by nature search our selection of Barmouth cottages.
