About the local area

Situated in the Snowdonia National Park, Gwytheryn is only a mile walk down to Dyffryn Beach, which was awarded the Green Coastline award for its clean beach environment and water. Within 2 miles there is a selection of shops and pubs, a 10 minute walk to the nearest pub. The mountains for roaming along with numerous lakes and rivers are close by. If you prefer a guided walk the annual walking festival at Barmouth held in September is proving more popular every year. Remember to bring your bikes as the cycle routes are fantastic and Coed-y-Brenin has some very interesting daredevil paths to conquer. It’s only 6 miles to the busy seaside resort of Barmouth with its numerous eateries and shops and 5 miles south is the historic town of Harlech with its magnificent castle and golf course. You will find the most glorious ten mile expanse of sandy beach from Harlech to Barmouth. Visit quaint villages such as Llanbedr, the gateway to Shell Island and Llandanwg with its Celtic church in the sand dunes. At Llanfair slate mines, where "The Last Knight" was filmed, learn how hard the colliers of yesteryear worked and Portmeirion (the Italian village where The Prisoner was filmed) is also close by and well worth a visit, meanwhile at Porthmadog, Barmouth and Pwllheli international race meetings are hosted. This beautiful part of North Wales offers something for everyone.
