Llanelltyd is the perfect base to explore this part of Wales. Not only does it have some of the most beautiful countryside to explore it has perfect links to surrounding areas via the A470 and the A496. The A470 winds its way inland through the market town of Dolgellau and in the opposite direction up to Blaenau Ffestiniog which is the start of the famous Ffestiniog railway.
The A496 heads towards the coast following the line of the Mawddach River and estuary. Passing through the seaside town of Barmouth and then northwards to Harlech Ė home of Harlech Castle and the Royal St Davidís Golf course. Llanelltyd itself is a small village sitting on the Mawddach River on land once owned by the Cymer monks. The monks resided in Cymer Abbey, the ruins of which can be explored today. The abbey was never particularly wealthy and during the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century the abbey was valued at only £51. To earn a living the monks farmed sheep on the neighbouring hillside and retained a notable stud.
A mile away you find Dolgellau the old county town of Merionethshire. Dolgellau is a market town with a great history spanning centuries including its once thriving commercial woollen based industries and local gold mines. The coast is only 9 miles away and attracts locals and visitors alike. Barmouth is a market harbour town with a sizeable beach for all sorts of activities.
Why not explore the old town or venture out onto the Barmouth Bridge for an evening stroll. Why not visit Harlech Castle, an impressive fortress built by Edward I in the late 13th century. During a noted battle it was taken over by the Welsh leader Owain Glyn Dwr who used Harlech to hold parliament. During the War of the Roses and the bravery of those inside the castle inspired the heartwarming song Men of Harlech.
Also in Harlech is the Royal St Davidís golf course which has seen many professional and amateur international tournaments Ė why not visit their website and see what some of the golfing greats have had to say about St Davidís.
