Harlech has also recently been given the accolade of having the second steepest street in the world at Ffordd Pen Llech which is proving to be a major tourist attraction.
Harlech has a wealth of traditional architecture, shops and restaurants. It also boasts the internationally renowned Royal St David's links golf course. Further afield are the larger towns of Barmouth (8 miles) and Porthmadog (12 miles) which offer more shops and large supermarkets. For those that require it, a private aircraft can be landed at Llanbedr airport which is about 3 miles from this property. For the rest of us Harlech railway station is a 5 minute walk away!
