Llanbedr, Gwynedd
Llanbedr is an attractive village situated in Gwynedd, North West Wales. Originally, a slate mining village, today Llanbedr lends its hand more to tourism and the attractions of the surrounding area. Llanbedr sits alongside the River Artro among glorious Welsh countryside. The village sits just a mile from the picturesque estuary of the River Artro at Llandanwg. Among the sand dunes can be found the parish church of Saint Tanwg. The old church probably dates from the 13th Century, but two inscribed stones are evidence of Christianity in Llandanwg from the early 6th Century.
Many pass through Llanbedr en route between the larger resorts of Harlech and Barmouth, however, those in the know pause awhile at Llanbedr. What is the attraction Well, besides the obvious attraction of the riverside beer garden and fine beers at the Victoria Inn, walkers will appreciate the fabulous countryside both within and at the head of the valley of the River Artro.
A 5 mile drive (or walk) to the lake at Llyn Cwm Bychan will be rewarded with several trails, including the famous Roman Steps into the Rhinog Mountains and beyond.
Alternative routes include the trail from Cwm yr Afon to the lake at Gloyws Lyn at the foot of Carreg y saeth (452m). Another trail, gaining in popularity with the growth in extreme sports activities of canyoning and river walking, is the trail that leads from the Afon Artro river along its tributary the Afon Cwmnantcol. The trail leads to the valley of Cwm Nantcol below Rhinog Fawr (617m). It passes several gorges with fabulous waterfalls and, whether you take the plunge and get wet or choose to stick to dry land, I am sure the memory of this hidden trail will stay with you for many years.
Dyffryn Ardudwy Neolithic Burial Chambers
History buffs will appreciate the striking 5,500 year old prehistoric burial chamber in nearby Dyffryn Ardudwy.
The impressive castle at Harlech, a World Heritage Site, is just 3 miles north of Llanbedr.
Away from the historical monuments however, there's the popular beaches of Shell Island easily located nearby with excellent places for camping, the seaside resort of Barmouth just 7 miles south of Llanbedr, and of course the Italian-styled village of Portmeirion 13 miles north of the village.
