About Gwelfor

Gwelfor has been offering warm hospitality for over 200 years and will greet you like an old friend. The traditional stone holiday cottage is in the Snowdonia village of Llanfair in between Harlech and Llanbedr and a short walk from the beach. Sleeping six people in three bedrooms, it's an excellent choice for families who want to explore far and wide, climbing mountains, descending into caverns, visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and discovering every day why Snowdonia is known as the adventure capital of Wales.

You may find it difficult to believe that somewhere as quiet and peaceful as Llanfair was once a busy, noisy centre of a thriving slate mining industry. You can learn more about the people and practices that helped shape this landscape on a self-guided tour of the Llanfair Slate Caverns that are open to the public between Easter and the end of October. Alternatively, the Blaenau Ffestiniog Slate Landscape, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is 20 minutes from the cottage by car. Every day of your Snowdonia holiday will bring something new and exciting, whether it's an exhilarating ride at Zip World Llechwedd, marvelling at the scale of Harlech Castle, or testing your handicap on the links at Royal St David's Golf Club. Other attractions include Portmeirion and the delightfully scenic Ffestiniog Railway.

One of the benefits of staying in Gwelfor is its proximity to Harlech beach, which is barely a ten-minute stroll from the door. Harlech castle and town are only a mile away, putting you close to restaurants, shops and bars. Walking is always popular whether you're striding out along the coastal footpath or enjoying panoramic views from atop a mountain. Mountain biking is another favourite pastime, with thousands of people coming to Snowdonia every year for the vast network of trails.

Gwelfor welcomes guests all year round.
