Penrhyndeudraeth, home to the Snowdonia National Park HQ, is ideally situated for exploring all of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula.

With several public footpaths around Penrhyn, there are lovely walks to do without even leaving the village, including Penrhyn estuary and the Gwaith Powdwr Nature reserve and a beautiful forest walk up to Rhyd with magnificent views.

There’s not even any need to drive to Portmeirion if you don’t want to – it’s only a two mile walk.
