Overview

Climbing haphazardly up the steep slopes at the back of the High Street, the paths and alleys of old Barmouth reveal many quaint and delightful corners. Houses seem to be built almost on top of one another in this fascinating jumble of steps and terraces.

The beach is a well maintained and clean one. The old Barmouth is quaint with old stone houses and buildings. The shops are unusual and different.

Take the walk up to Oleau - the very first National Trust Property. You will b e amazed both by the views above the harbour and the history of this beautiful place. Well worth the climb.
