About the neighbourhood
Tyddyn-y-Felin is situated in the Snowdonia National Park with its many attractions amongst the wild Rhinog Mountain ranges and many lakes in the area. Covering over 823 square miles of diverse landscapes, Snowdonia National Park has something for everyone including Ramblers, Cyclists, Wildlife enthusiasts, Bird Watchers, Artists, Photographers, fishing, canoeists and climbers. Wild goats can be seen in the garden frequently, much to the plants/trees' disappointment! and buzzards are seen often. Star Gazers will be amazed at the bright sky at night, no smog here!

There is plenty to do come rain or sunshine with beaches, rivers, waterfalls, woodlands, forestry, mountains and walks abound. Visit the underground caves at Blaenau Ffestiniog or take a trip on any of the narrow gauge rail...
