Glan-y-morfa is ideally located for access to some of the best holiday activities in Wales. Here are some ideas...
Aberdyfi (15 minutes drive) has one of the best beaches in Wales - ideal for bucket and spade activities, walking, windsurfing and sailing. Even during the winter the beach is perfect for dog walking.
There are a number of walks that start just outside the front door of the cottage, taking you along secluded farm tracks and public footpaths that criss cross the undulating landscape that surrounds Glan-y-morfa. For those of you who are more ambitious there are a multitude of hills and mountains waiting to be climbed. Of particular interest is Cader Idris - at 893m it is the highest peak in southern Snowdonia. 30 minutes drive from Glan-y-morfa, it's a tough climb to the top but well worth the effort as the views are simply spectacular!
Easy cycling along the lanes offers good access to further hidden corners of the area. Pack a picnic and spend the day enjoying the sites. Try cycling from Glan-y-morfa through the 'Happy Valley', a beautiful and aptly-named lane winding through the hills towards Tywyn. For the more adventurous there are some challenging routes nearby - try the 'Cli-Machx' trail at Machynlleth or the spectacular trails at Coed-y-Brenin just north of Dolgellau.
Aberdyfi boasts one of the finest links courses in Wales. Its unique character, exhilarating start and numerous hazards are sure to give a challenging and fulfilling game to all abilities!
Glan-y-morfa is situated within an easy walk of 'Plas Talgarth Country Club' offering non-residents access to their bar and restaurant, and a gastro-pub experience at 'The Riverside' in Pennal. Further afield, both Aberdyfi, Machynlleth and Dolgellau have a good selection of restuarants and pubs so you will always be spoilt for choice!
There is great sea fishing in and around the Dyfi estuary, including the coast between Aberdyfi and Tywyn, with a good chance of catching flounders, dabs and even sea bass. Boat fiishing trips from Aberdyfi are available - call 01654 710 869 for more information or to book a trip.
The River Dyfi is well known for its salmon and sea trout (sewin) fishing, and permits are required if you wish to fish it. If you are interested you will need to book in advance as the permits are limited, popular and go fast. Permits are available from the New Dovey Fisheries Association (01654 702721), Read's Garage, Machynlleth (01654 703 360) and the Cemmaes Road Post Office (01650 511 422). Currently a weekly ticket is £200.
