Tan-y-fron Holiday Park is located in the centre of the idyllic Snowdonia National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty with CaderIdris, Wales’ second highest mountain after Snowdon itself, in the background.
This small and welcoming family run park is open throughout the year, and has a range of modern facilities that will guarantee your comfort whenever you decide to visit. A range of touring pitches are available in addition to a small number of holiday homes that can be purchased by holidaymakers who grow to love the area and wish to make this a permanent holiday retreat for themselves and their families.
Tan-y-fron is the perfect base for exploring the nearby town of Dolgellau and for touring the whole of Snowdonia National Park. However, we understand that following woodland trails by foot, horseback, or bicycle is not something that appeals to everyone. It is therefore lucky that the park enjoys excellent transport links that will enable you to discover much of the beauty of Wales away from Snowdonia.
A short drive west will bring you to the coast, where you will find an array of small seaside towns and villages, as well as hidden beaches and coves where you can sit and relax in front of the usually calm and tranquil sea.
Alternatively, you might look to head into the centre of Wales, where friendly local communities and businesses, from bakers and butchers to public houses and restaurants, are just waiting to be discovered.
Tan-y-fron is the perfect park to visit if you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of a busy life in a large town or city. The park and the surrounding areas could not be more different, and as such are a must visit for anyone looking to do nothing but relax.
Internet Access available.
