Llety'r Gader self catering farmhouse is situated in the Dysynni Valley - an area of outstanding beauty near Tywyn (9 miles) and the stunning beach town of Aberdyfi (13 miles) in North Wales. Set at the foot of Cader Idris in southern Snowdonia, it is 2 miles from the village of Abergynolwyn which offers a good traditional pub and great little restaurant. If you want to get away from it all, then Llety'r Gader is the place to come.
Popular activities in the South Snowdonia area include Hill Walking, Climbing, Mountain biking, Water Sports, Pony Trekking and Fishing.
Amongst the main attractions in the area is the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Corris Craft Centre, King Arthur's Labyrinth (a great family day out) and a number of steam and miniature railways, including the Talyllyn railway just two miles away.
For many the jewel of the valley is Talyllyn lake. Whatever your ability and level of fitness you'll discover miles of quiet and rewarding walks wherever you go. Paths wind up beside the famous Dolgoch Falls or take a visit to Castell y Bere (castle) built by Llewelyn Fawr around 1221 for a breathtaking view of the entire length of the valley. This is a land full of beauty, history and legend – the perfect combination for an inspiring holiday.
Cadair Idris (mountain walk) – one route starting from the doorstep at Llanfihangel-y-Pennant and climbs steadily on the southern section of the pony path. 10 miles to summit – graded moderate/hard. 0 miles (by the farmhouse)

Surrounded by sea, rivers and lakes, this is one of the best all round angling locations available. Try your hand at some shore fishing in Tywyn and Aberdyfi (9 and 13 miles) lake fishing in Tal-y-llyn (4 miles) or river fishing on the Dysynni (0.5 miles).
Bwlchgwyn Farm Pony Trekking Centre - suitable for anyone over 4yrs. 14 miles

Remote, no roads, no people - brilliant.
Tip: Soak up the remote nature of the property. You'll miss it when you get homeDavid from East Bridgford - 21st May 2017
A little gem hidden in the valley.
Tips: Just enjoy the walking, more than enough for a week or two. Good butchers in Machynlleth and Dolgellau, local produce and small deli in Fairbourne all good fresh produce.Michael from Farnborough - 17th October 2016
The property was comfortable and peaceful. It was in a very rual location, just want we wanted this year for our family holiday. There are plenty of places to go walking, you can even leave the car at the farmhouse and take a hike around the area. There is a mountain bike centre close by. A trip to Snowdon is worthwhile and it's a nice walk up to the summit if you are fit enough. However there is a train but a little costly.Family from Devon - 16th July 2016
Lovely stay, in a beautiful spot.
Recommendations - A visit to Aberdovey, a walk around the Cregennan Lakes, the Precipice Walk, Llanberis Pass, Bedgellert, a visit to Conwy.Jacqueline from The Netherlands - 11th June 2016
Fantastic getaway with university friends. Idyllic location and lovely cottage and rift in the footpath for beautiful walks. Owner was very helpful when I spoke to her the day before arrival as were Best of Wales staff. It was wonderful, had an amazing time.Richard from Mold - 9th May 2016
