Llangynog holiday cottages are perfect for visitors who want to explore Snowdonia National Park. This rural village is close to the eastern edge of the park, in the unspoiled county of Powys. There is a lovely pub in the village centre – the New Inn. With log fires and a selection of local ales, it is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring. The New Inn also has a reputation for serving great food, including steaks, and pies, prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients. A variety of shops, including a butcher and a grocery, can be found in neigbouring Llanrheadr. Thanks to the surrounding mountainous countryside, self-catering holidays in Llangynog are particularly popular among walkers and climbers.
This peaceful Welsh community lies at the confluence of two rivers – the Afon Tanat and the Afon Eirth. Overlooking the village, the Berwyn Range is a rugged area of high moorland, covered in heather, bracken and grassland. Windswept and isolated, it is a dramatic destination for adventurous hikers, with peaks such as Cadair Berwyn providing breathtaking views across the countryside. Birdwatching is also a popular activity, thanks to the presence of hen harriers, peregrine falcons and other rare birds. Llangynog is located at the foot of the Milltir Cerrig mountain pass, which connects Llan Ffestiniog with Llanfylin. In and around the village, there are a number of interesting historical landmarks, including the pilgrimage shrine of Saint Melangell, at St Melangell Church.
A Llangynog holiday cottage is an excellent choice for guests who want to explore the county of Powys and beyond. A scenic drive westward will bring you to the lakes, mountains and forests of Snowdonia National Park. Lake Vyrnwy and Bala Lake are both a short drive away, while Powys Castle, Oswestry, Wrexham and Chester are all close enough for daytrips.
