Barmouth is one of the most picturesque resorts on the Welsh coast, flanked by the dramatically beautiful Mawddach Estuary and surrounded by the splendour of Snowdonia National Park. The blue-flag beach and traditional seaside atmosphere make it perfect for great value family holidays, whilst Barmouth’s location puts it within easy reach of many other attractions in North and Mid Wales, making it an ideal base for exploring Snowdonia.
Nearby there are slate caverns, farm parks and craft centres to visit, narrow gauge railways to ride upon and castles steeped in history to experience. Barmouth sits at mid-point on the renowned Cambrian Line, providing an excellent opportunity to view the scenery and coastline whilst travelling stress-free, by train.
For the more active visitor to Barmouth there are miles of great rambling, climbing and cycling routes, following disused railway lines, old miners’ and drovers’ trails or pathways in the nearby forests. In fact Southern Snowdonia is an ideal base for a walking or cycling holiday spent exploring the landscape of hidden valleys, wild open moorland, lakes and mountains.
Such a variety of unspoilt countryside and coastline provides the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, making the area perfect for birdwatching and spotting other creatures - porpoise, seals, or Cardigan Bay dolphins.
