The Cabin in Harlech, Gwynedd - for a short midweek or long weekend break

Welcome to The Cabin and ideal choice for your next long weekend or midweek break.

This cosy wooden cabin is located at Trawsfynydd Holiday Village, a rural development in the stunning Snowdonia National Park. There's a quirkily designed kitchen, and the dining table overlooks the private garden area outside – great for relaxing with either a morning coffee or a glass of wine as the sun slowly sets over the Rhinog Mountains. The site was originally used by the War Office as an army camp, and there are still remnants of its former use in the surrounding area. It closed in 1959 and was subsequently developed into the holiday village which exists today, and now has a pub and restaurant on-site together with reception and laundry facilities.

The village of Trawsfynydd is a couple of miles away, and close by you'll find Trawsfynydd Lake which offers a cafe, fishing tackle shop, cycle hire and walking opportunities. Just outside the village is the delightful farm of Yr Ysgwrn, former home of the Welsh poet Hedd Wyn, and well worth a visit to learn the story of Trawsfynydd's most famous son. Barmouth is a bustling seaside town with wonderful shops and amusements and donkey rides on the beach, and Harlech has a fantastic wild beach with miles of sand dunes, a quaint village and a magnificent medieval castle. Both are fantastic beach locations which visitors will love and are about 12 miles away, a definite highlight of any visit here.

Dolgellau is the nearest town with a river running through and is really beautiful with lovely little shops, cafes and a great pub. The slate quarrying capital of Blaenau Ffestiniog has the largest zip wire zone in the world at Zip World Titan, family fun on the trampoline nets deep underground in an old slate cavern at Bounce Below, and the white knuckle Stiniog Mountain Bike Trails! If that all seems too much, take a trip on the famous Ffestiniog Railway behind a steam engine on the picturesque trip down to the coast at Porthmadog, with a new vista opening up at every turn. Or marvel at the quirky Italianate architecture at Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams Ellis. There's a lovely scenic drive from Trawsfynydd Holiday Village over the hills to Llanuwchllyn, or you can take the road to Dolgellau and visit the leafy Coed Y Brenin Forest Park on the way. Beach 17 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
