So much to do!

Snowdonia National Park

The local area is alive with great things to do, especially for those who enjoy the great outdoors. Get away from the crowds. Lose yourself in the stunning scenery of the Snowdonia National Park or the wide Dovey Valley and its vast estuary.

Look forward towards a greener future at The Centre for Alternative Technology. Or take a trip back in time on a historical journey to the age of King Arthur or Owain Glyndwr, or ride on a narrow-gauge steam railway or explore a disused mine.

Head to the coast for those sandy beaches and seaside resorts. Maybe take the Cambrian Coast Railway as it snakes its way along the very edge of the sea.

For an adrenalin rush try some 'extreme' mountain biking in the mountains and forests, or if that's too energetic for you take a leisurely stroll along the river or among the gift shops and tea rooms or just enjoy the scenery and do nothing at all.

There are lots of wonderful walks, cycle routes and mountain bike trails. There is a championship golf course at Aberdovey, Kite & Windsurfing, Fishing and Pony Trekking.

There is such a wide variety of interesting and exciting places to visit. Whether you fancy an active day out, a little stroll or a trip back in time there is always something nearby to suit your mood.
