Snowdonia Attractions & Activities

Porthmadog is essentially a gateway to the stunning Glaslyn Valley at the southern edge of the Vale of Ffestiniog which leads directly to Beddgelert and the main peaks of the Snowdonia National Park, including Snowdon. It is also home to the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway’s just 5 minutes from the house both of which pass through some incredible scenery. The world famous Italianate village of Portmeirion designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis is also a stone’s throw away from us.The sandy beaches of Borth-y-Gest and the famous Black Rock Sands at Morfa Bychan are all within a 10 minute drive.Golf in the area is well provided for with courses at HarlechPorthmadogPwllheliNefyn and Abersoch.


We are based in the hub of the Snowdonia National Park and are ideally placed for all the attractions that North Wales has to offer.
