    Posted on February 28, 2014 by in Facilities

    It’s been a busy off season making good and replacing, cleaning, and preparing for the coming season. Christmas and New Year guests had good weeks but also had the Barmouth flooding on Friday, 3rd January. We then had an empty January and lots of short breaks in February. It’s hard to remember what we have […]

    Ynys y Brawd

    Posted on November 9, 2013 by in Barmouth, Sea

    I have often wondered how Barmouth beach is so large and wondered at its natural beauty. Expecially the vast quantities of the beautiful sand. But I have now learned that the vast size is a relatively recent phenomenon and not so natural. At the entrance to the Mawddach estuary, just in front of the southern […]

  • Maes Yr Helmau to Cross Foxes Temporary Traffic Lights A470

    Posted on July 16, 2013 by in Uncategorized

    I sat in a small queue yesterday at the temporary traffic lights, doing some consumer testing for the summer. There are about 200 yards of road to complete and I thought there would be a tiny chance that on Saturdays throughout the summer there would be no lights. But apparently not, the lights are scheduled […]

    Barmouth Donkeys

    Posted on July 10, 2013 by in Barmouth, Things to do

    The Barmouth donkeys are a feature of the southern end of the beach. They are located at the junction of Beach road, coming down from the train station, and the promenade. If they are there and you have young children, please do give them a go. They are lovely, well trained and contented donkeys and […]

    Milltir Cerrig – snow hunting

    Posted on March 30, 2013 by in Uncategorized

    It was a long journey to Barmouth today. My fault. I decided to travel via a northern route to see the snow before it disappeared. I must have missed the first road ahead shut signs but having gone so far from Knockin on the B4396/B4391 aiming for Bala, I decided to ignore the road ahead […]
