Kings is set in its own beautiful grounds within Snowdonia National Park.

Surrounded by trees, hills and mountains, a picturesque river runs through the grounds and there is a fire pit for bonfires.

Wonderful walks and cycle routes straight from the doorstep include Cader Idris and the Mawddach Estuary.

The nearest sandy beach is five miles away and Barmouth is about half an hour away.

In Barmouth you will find miles of sandy beaches, an interesting old harbour, shops, pubs, eateries, mini funfair, arcade and fish, chips and ice cream galore.

The pretty town of Dolgellau is twenty minutes away. The nearest supermarkets, banks, shops, cafes, restaurants and take aways are here.

Our nearest pub is closer by in Penmaenpool, right next to the Mawddach, a beautiful setting.

Coed Y Brenin, famous for its mountain bike trails, is about twenty minutes away by car.

Lake Bala can be reached within half an hour.

Likewise, Portmeirion Village and the Ffestiniog railway are both lovely days out and around half an hour away.

Some of the finest castles in Wales can be found in Snowdonia. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle is about forty minutes up the coast.

For those who wish to travel to Snowdon, it can be quite a bit busier than the local area, and so we would recommend giving yourself about an hour and a quarter.

We tend to climb up Cader and take in the view from there permitting!

Although we have many attractions on our doorstep, Kings is a wonderful get away from it all place. A remote, relaxing, mountain hostel.
