Natural Feature
“Crack out the walking boots and head on up the valley to Cadair Idris for a brisk walk up a very beautiful mountain. A mountain of myth and legend and one of Mid Wales' best kept secrets as it's far quieter than the hubbub of North Wales' Eryri or the Beacons further south. Not to mention there are two pubs within a few miles of the base of the mountain for a pub lunch after a few hours hike!”

Nature
“it’s got mountains, sand and sea. Barmouth’s delights were rhapsodised by William Wordsworth, who, after a visit, said in 1824: ‘We took a boat and rowed up its sublime estuary, which may compare with the finest in Scotland, having the advantage of a superior climate. ‘With a fine sea view in front, the mountains behind, the glorious estuary running eight miles inland and Cader Idris within compass of a day’s walk, Barmouth can always hold its own against any rival.’ Barmouth beach is immense, even at high tide - plenty of room for the kids to use up all their energy. The resort also boasts a micro-climate, being slightly warmer in winter and cooler in summer”
