With the beautiful, clean, safe, sandy beach of Barmouth just 100 metres from Hendre Mynach, there is always plenty of space for the family to play, sunbathe and swim. The promenade takes you straight to Barmouth town centre, a pleasant and safe 20 min walk, where there are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels with bar-food.
Sea-fishing is very popular from the shore and boat trips are available from Barmouth harbour for fishing off-shore.
There is a leisure centre, amusement park and donkey-rides and trampolines on the beach nearer the town.
Barmouth is proud to have the European Blue Flag Award for its beach. A small land train travels up and down the promenade, fun for all the family, and the local bus to Barmouth stops very near the site. We are right on the National Cycle Route No. 8.
Mountains and Estuary
The Snowdonia National Park is right on the doorstep with the foothills of Cadair Idris just 10 miles away by car. There are many lovely mountain and estuary walks in the area, varying in difficulty. Please ask at the site office for detailed information.
The famous and beautiful Mawddach Estuary stretches from Barmouth to Dolgellau. You can drive down to Dolgellau and back up again to Fairbourne or walk or cycle down the footpath along the old railway line, starting by crossing the famous Barmouth Bridge, from which there are spectacular views of the estuary. Ideal site for bird-watching with a RSPB site at Penmaenpool right on the footpath.
Bike hire is available in Barmouth if required.
