Centrally located for touring the Snowdonia National Park and the Llyn peninsula, Wenallt is near the centre of Penrhyndeudraeth village but elevated enough to enjoy views towards the Dwyryd estuary and the Rhinog mountains behind Harlech.
Wenallt is less than 2 miles/3km from Portmeirion, the Italianate fantasy village and setting for the cult 60s TV series The Prisoner. The world-famous Ffestiniog narrow-gauge steam railway also runs near the house, with its Penrhyn Station just a few minutes’ walk away. For garden lovers, Plas Brondanw, created by Clough Williams-Ellis of Portmeirion fame, is 2 miles/3km away. Ospreys breed nearby and there is an information and viewing area (free entry) at Pont Croesor (2 miles/3km). The Welsh Highland narrow gauge steam railway runs from Porthmadog via Beddgelert to Caernarfon Castle, a world heritage site.

Penrhyndeudraeth is a large village in the scenic Vale of Ffestiniog. Our local services include a convenience store/Post Office, newsagent, free-to-use cashpoint, chemist, doctor's surgery, Indian Restaurant, a pub and good public transport links with a main line railway station (Shrewsbury to Pwllheli route), plus buses and the Ffestiniog railway all within walking distance. Porthmadog, our nearest town, (3 miles/5km) has shops, restaurants and cafés, with Black Rock Sands nearby. The pretty mountain village of Beddgelert is 7 miles/11km, and the world-famous castles and beaches at Harlech and Criccieth both 8 miles/13km.
A little further afield are Bodnant Garden, Penrhyn Castle, Plas Newydd and Plas-yn-Rhiw (NT properties); slate caverns, zip wires and slate museums at Llechwedd and Llanberis and of course Mount Snowdon itself.

Walkers and cyclists are welcome. For those exploring the area by bicycle we have a lockable bike shed. Limited undercover car parking is available for our guests, ideal if you are touring by motorcycle, and there is a free public car park nearby.
