A little taster of some of the activities to see and do in and around the town ofLlanfairfechan…

The Town of Llanfairfechan

The village is well served with a large well stocked co-op and a variety of independent shops including a family butchers, a pharmacy, post office, cake shop, gallery and many others. There are several cafe’s and restaurants including the large Victorian Pavilion on the promenade and the lovely dog friendly Seagrass restaurant.


The  wonderfully clean  beach has panoramic views of mountains and sea. It  is  pebbled at the top and when the tide goes out there is a wide sandy bay. It’s a slightly undiscovered place for old fashioned bucket and spade fun with two cafes and  ice creams available from the Pavilion. There is also a duck pond and a children’s playground. At the end of the long promenade are the salt marches of the Morfa Aber nature reserve with beautiful walks and views.


There are many l wonderful walks around Llanfairfechan that can be enjoyed straight from the front door of Uwch Y Môr and as it is situated in the foothills of the Carneddau mountains many of them are elevated with spectacular views of the coast and over to Anglesey and Puffin Island. In particular the Nant Y Coed Nature reserve is a short walk away. As the area has been inhabited since the Stone Age there are also many walks taking in ancient monuments such a the remains of stone circles and standing stones. You can also walk to the tiny lake Anafon (formerly a reservoir) for total peace and tranquility.

On the way you will probably see some of the unique  Carneddau ponies which don’t live anywhere else and spend the whole year living wild on the mountains.
