Interaction with guests
You can arrive at your leisure after 3pm knowing the cabin will be spotless with a keysafe to get your keys so no need to arrive at a designated time. Come and go as you please. If you need earlier access or a late departure, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate any requirements.

About the neighbourhood
Trawsfynydd Holiday Village is located in the Southern half of Snowdonia National Park in Bronaber, approx 2 miles south of Trawsfynydd. We are conveniently located just off the A470, 10 miles north of Dolgellau and 14 miles south of Porthmadog and are approximately 2 hours drive from Liverpool, Manchester, Shrewsbury and the Midlands. We are in a rural location, but with a car it is easy to visit mountains, beaches and many tourist attractions, being just 2 miles from Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre and in easy reach of villages like Dolgellau, Barmouth, Porthmadog, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Betws-y-Coed. Reaching us by public Transport is possible, but to make the most of your visit to Snowdonia a car is the best option as bus & train services are limited. The best source of inform...
Getting around
Best by car but bus routes just down the lane to neighboring beaches and places to see.
