The Mawddach estuary is one of the best places to experience the beauty of Snowdonia and the splendor of Wales' west coast as they come together and the town of Barmouth is amongst the estuary's finest.

Once a shipbuilding hotbed, Barmouth now relies on its spectacular views and scenic coastline to attract holiday makers and keep the local economy strong.

Perhaps the best description of Barmouth was given by the poet William Wordsworth, who wrote: "With a fine sea view in front, the mountains behind, the glorious estuary running eight miles inland and Cadair Idris within compass of a day's walk, Barmouth can always hold its own against any rival."

With more hill walking and cycling routes than you could explore in any single holiday, Barmouth has continued to do more than hold its own in recent years, attracting people back year after year for holidays in Wales.

Local attractions and days out that will please the whole family include the Fairbourne Railway, Pensarn watersports harbour and King Arthur's Labyrinth, all of which are within half an hour's drive of Barmouth.
