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.
