Snowy mountains, sparkling lakes and a wild coast are all on the doorstep of Abergynolwyn holiday cottages. This small village in southern Gwynedd, Wales is set amid unspoiled countryside in the shadow of Cadair Idris. It lies at the confluence of two rivers, Nant Gwernol and Afon Dysynni, eight miles from the coast at the southern end of Snowdonia National Park. This tightknit community started life as homes for workers at a nearby quarry, when the Talyllyn Railway was used to transport slate to the coast. Today, it is the perfect base for a relaxing break in the heart of north Wales. Self-catering holidays in Abergynolwyn are popular among walkers tackling Cadair Idris, thanks to the footpath to the summit which begins just outside the village. It is a tough ascent, but you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of Snowdonia, the Mawddach Estuary and the coast beyond.
