If you are after a feeling of remoteness, Abergwesyn is the place for you. Just 50 miles from Cardiff, Abergwesyn Valley is a true wilderness.
We have a few cottages in and around Abergwesyn, Glyn Barn sleeps 10 in a gorgeous, well equipped barn conversion with superb views.
Penrhyn Barn also sleeps 10, and is at the other end of the valley. It’s on a working farm in the most spectacular spot.
If you’re looking for a challenge, there is some wonderful mountain biking in the area, and for road bikers, it’s the start of the well known (amongst intrepid cyclists) Devil’s Staircase. A mile-long stretch of old Drovers Road with some of the most astonishing hills. For walkers, there is a good range of walks from stiff summits to easy ridge and valley walks.
Abergwesyn commons are full of archaeological remains – you’ll find Bronze Age ritual sites, deserted medieval villages, cairns and a stone circle.
Birdwatchers will find Nuthatch Cottage fascinating, but should also look out for red kites, golden plovers and visit Gwenffrwd-Dinas Nature Reserve.
