Situated on the North West Boundary of the Snowdonia National Park The Old School provides the ideal base for families, walkers, cyclists, climbers and other activities
We are within easy reach of Snowdon and its neighbouring mountains.
A network of newly opened footpaths and bridleways around us offer a unique link from Snowdon along the classic Nantlle Ridge Walk to the contrasting Lleyn Peninsular and Bardsey Island.
Nearby Lon Eifion, now part of the Sus-Trans cycle network, is a safe, quiet and attractive route for walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users. It follows the old railway line from Caernarfon to Bryncir with a link to Criccieth along quiet country lanes.
Tremadog lies a few miles awry , a busy centre for climbers all year round.
For the les energetic visitor the beaches and marinas of Criccieth, Pwllheli and Abersoch are well worth a visit. The North Coast of the Lleyn Peninsular has many hidden coves to explore. Further north the Island of Anglsey is well within an hours drive. You will find secluded beaches almost empty even in July.
The historic town of Caernarfon with its Royal connections has much to offer- the castle, museums, harbour, airport offering pleasure flights, the newly opened Welsh Highland Railway and many other attractions.
Within easy drives are the Castles of Beaumaris, Conway and Harlech.
Thee road South takes you to Porthmadog, a bustling town with its Maritime museum, Ffestiniog Narrow Guage Railway and Black Rock Sands nearby.
The magical Italianate village of Portmeirion is a short distance from Porthmadog-an ideal place for a leisurely day out.
To maximise your enjoyment of the area advice is available for all activities. If required, instruction and equipment can be arranged.
Wherever your interests lie, this area has much to offer the glorious scenery, the fascinating heritage and history, the wealth of activities and innumerable attraction for all ages to give our visitors a Taste for Wales.
Although the weatherman may forecast rail on the mountains, here, across the valley on the edge of the Lleyn Peninsular,the sun often shines!

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
