Places to See

Dolgellau (pronounced Dol-geth-lie) - is an attractive Snowdonia market town 5 miles from Graig Wen. Here you'll find excellent independent shops, a monthly farmer's market (every 3rd Sunday) plus a range of both traditional and modern cafes, restaurants and pubs. There are two restaurants featured in the Good Food Guide within 10 minutes drive of Graig Wen. Foodies can also buy direct from producers at the farm gates and should make a date with nearby Machynlleth's Wednesday market and stylish craft shops.

More to See

Head North up the coast road to Portmeirion, the Italianate village designed as a folly and famous as the setting for cult TV show The Prisoner. On the way back explore the dramatic Harlech Castle overlooking miles of windswept beach.

Take a beautiful drive south along the coast to the charming seaside village of Aberdyfi – a great place for lunch. On the way back stop by the Centre for Alternative Technology - Europe's leading eco-centre. There's loads of things to do from walking to whitewater rafting.

Zipworld Titan - Europe's longest series of zip lines has recently opened at the slate caverns of Blaenau Ffestiniog less than 30 minutes drive from us. Here you'll also find Bounce Below - the extraordinary new giant underground trampoline!
