Very relaxing time in wonderful setting. Castell y Bere was in a magical setting. The Railway Inn in the village was very pleasant. We went on the Tal y Llyn railway and many places in the surrounding area - Dolgellau, Barmouth, Harlech etc take you through wonderful scenery.Elaine from Llechryd - 23rd May 2017

Things to see

Fishing in Tal-y-llyn

Talyllyn is a natural 220-acre, shallow lake nestling in the southwest corner of the Snowdonia National Park and below the peak of Cader Idris. It forms the headwater of the river Dysynni that flows westwards for 10 miles before entering Cardigan Bay just north of Tywyn.

Castell Y Bere, Abergynolwyn

Deep in the mountainous heart of mid Wales, nestling at the foot of Cader Idris, lie the ruins of Castell y Bere. An atmospheric site, it is an outstanding example of a stronghold of the native Welsh princes, and an illuminating contrast with the castles of their English adversaries.
