Description

Just 2 minutes from the glorious sandy beach, Swyn y Mor is ideally located in the centre of Barmouth on the Cambrian coast. Spread over three floors this semi-detached property makes a great base for exploring the area and is also just a short walk from the town centre with its range of pubs, cafés, individual shops and entertainment for all the family. You’ll make good use of your bucket and spade, or you can walk along Barmouth viaduct and along the delightful Mawddach Trail which runs alongside the Mawddach Estuary to the pretty town of Dolgellau along the course of an old railway line. From Barmouth you can explore the coastline by train too, north to Harlech with its magnificent Edward I castle, now in the care of Cadw brooding over the village, whilst to the south is Llwyngwril, home to an annual Yarnbombing project – can you spot Gwril the Giant? Further south is Tywyn, home of the Talyllyn Railway, where you can enjoy a ride on a narrow gauge steam train into the hills to Nant Gwernol. Above Barmouth is Dinas Oleu, the first part of land to be given to the National Trust and the views are worth the steep climb. If you’re into adrenaline activities, no visit to this part of Wales would be complete without a visit to Blaenau Ffestiniog and Zip World, which is the largest zip wire zone in the world, and Bounce Below, the only place you are ever likely to bounce on trampoline nets in an underground slate cavern the size of St Paul’s Cathedral. Beach 200 yards. Shop and restaurant 440 yards, pub 200 yards.
