Dwyfor has as its boundaries the mountains of Snowdonia to the North and the pure beaches of Tremadoc Bay to the South. It is an area of astounding scenery, activity centres, historic castles, cascading rivers, award winning restaurants, and narrow gauge railways. Everything, in fact to keep adults and children enthralled. The cottage nestles in acres of scenic landscape and as you open the door from the cottage you are greeted by the sight of mountains backed by a huge sky.
Just on the doorstep of the cottage is Snowdonia National Park where nine mountain ranges, some with peaks of over 3000 feet provide every kind of activity imaginable. The cavernous river gorges, gushing waterfalls and verdant valleys, along with the lovely coastline with many miles of sandy beaches provide this area opportunities for climbing, walking, fishing, swimming, castles and delicious food.
