Yr Efail is one of three converted outbuildings (see Y Beudy WAG430 and Ysgubor WAG431) in a fabulous and convenient location, between the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park and the stunning Isle of Anglesey. This rural location, with fantastic views, is between the village of Port Dinorwig (Felinheli) and the university city of Bangor. The town of Caernarfon, with its majestic castle, is 6 miles away, Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon, 5 miles and ZipWorld Velocity zip wire at Bethesda also 5 miles.

"Don't miss Greenwood Forest Park just down the road, this is a perfect family day out with a scary water slide, people powered roller coaster and an indoor play area which is open all year. Its a really lovely location as well with outdoor entertainment during the school holidays, my daughter still loves it and she is a teenager!"  from Jacky, our local property manager
