What Our Guests Love To Do


Cycle Through Town: Many of our guests enjoy bringing a couple of bikes with them, and riding through the town and, for those with the will, up along the single track roads mapping the area

A Visit to the Castle: As one of the most prominent landmarks for miles around, Harlech castle is truly worth a visit

Portmeirion: A little Italian village in Wales, Portmeirion is famous for its beauty and yearly Festival No.6. Enjoy a stroll through the town and gardens, or stop off at Castell Deudraeth for food

Golfing / Fishing: With the Royal St.Davids golf course just minutes away from Hafod Wen, and a number of high quality fishing spots in the area, Harlech is an ideal location to get outside and enjoy a little sport, weather permitting!

Zip World: A 25 minute drive from Hafod Wen, Zip World in Blaenau provides an experience for almost everyone, from zip lines to Bounce Below and Zip World Caverns.

The Hafod Wen Experience


Enjoy the Gardens: With over 8 Acres of private gardens, perhaps one of our favourite ways to relax is to explore the gardens, and enjoy the views from our 'Lookout' points

Yoga on the Green: Why not try your hand at a little yoga on the bowling green to start the day off right

A Game of Bowls in the Sunset: Another favourite of ours, why not take advantage of the stunning views and enjoy a little light hearted competition!

Dolphin Spotting: Suitable for all ages, and can be played from almost any room in the Hafod Wen House or Cottage.
