On a hillside location, in the village of Penrhyndeudraeth, lies Bryn Bethel, a semi-detached property with an enclosed courtyard garden to the rear. With a living room, spacious kitchen, separate dining room and off-road parking just 50 yards away, it makes an ideal base for exploring the area. Within walking distance of Bryn Bethel is Penrhyn station on the famous Ffestiniog Railway. Its narrow gauge steam trains provide a wonderful way of seeing the ever-changing scenery as the line winds its way from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog. Also within walking distance is the quirky Italianate village of Portmeirion, built by Clough Williams Ellis, and made famous in the 1960s as the filming location for ‘The Prisoner’ series. There are supermarkets and a range of individual shops in nearby Porthmadog, and the gorgeous sandy beach at Black Rock Sands just a few minutes’ drive away.
In the other direction is Blaenau Ffestiniog, home to Zip World, where you can experience the largest zip wire zone in the world as you zoom over a slate quarry. Or go deep underground to bounce on trampoline nets in an old slate cavern at Bounce Below. Why not take a tour into the Llechwedd Slate Caverns and learn what life was like as a quarryman at the turn of the 20th century? There’s history, too, at Harlech Castle, which was built by Edward I as one of his ring of castles in North Wales. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and despite its brooding appearance, it warmly welcomes visitors and has a jolly nice café too!
Bryn Bethel is also ideal if you want to explore the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park. At 3,560ft high, Snowdon itself is the highest mountain in Wales and England and is a magnet for climbers, walkers and tourists alike. If you don’t want to walk up it, go the easy way up on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. To the west of Penrhyndeudraeth is the quieter Llyn Peninsula. Centred on the market town of Pwllheli there are tiny villages and rocky coves to explore along the coastline of this Welsh heartland. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
