About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area is one of outstanding beauty. Mountains, hills, beaches, rivers, lakes and winding lanes and footpaths leading to picnic areas and fantastic views. The Welsh language can be heard wherever you go. There are many restaurants and cafes, and lots to do even in the rain.
The best way to explore the area is on foot, but you will need to drive about to really enjoy the myriad of walks etc. in the surrounding area. You can take a train from Fairbourne to Pwyllheli or the ferry to Barmouth. Driving is the most convenient way to get about, there is so much to see and experience.

We are situated above the village of Arthog on a narrow lane signed Creggennan Lakes. Do not be put off by the gate through which you have to pass on the lane, it is a boundary gate to prevent animals straying. The bends above the gate are quite sharp and steep, but don't worry after the bends we are the next house you come to. Parking is through the gate, behind the house and in front of the cottage.
