Wonderful woodland walks amid stunning ancient trees. Great for the children and walking dogs. Lovely beaches nearby. Great during all seasons of the year. The cafe is to be recommended after your walk.

Went to Glynllifon this morning (sunday) just after 10am.The signs at the car park state that Glynllifon is open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm. We fancied a coffee at the café. We sat outside until 10.20 and then left.

There are two toilet blocks, one near the cafe and one near the craft workshops. There are no toilets within the grounds/gardens themselves.

Yes, absolutely. The place is perfect for dog walking. But they do need to be kept on a leash and their mess cleaned. Appropriate bins provided in the car park.
