Welcome to Mid-West Wales

Ceinws is situated in a fascinating area that is great for short breaks and longer holidays.

Snowdonia National Park begins a few hundred metres from the village and is one of the best areas for walking in Wales. Climb the formidable Cadair Idris (only 15 minutes drive from the pub) or explore the Dyfi Forest on foot from the pub! Ask us about recommended local walks.

Wales offers some of the world's best mountain biking, with the ClimachX trail starting from Ceinws, just a few hundred metres from the pub and the famous Coed y Brenin cycling centre only a 25 minute drive away near Dolgellau. Information on mountain biking can be found at Mountain Biking Wales and Dyfi Mountain Biking.

Just 1 mile south of Ceinws is the Centre for Alternative Technology, which is both a visitor attraction and education centre.

The beautiful coast at Aberdovey is a 25 minute drive away, also accessible on the train from Machynlleth. Explore this stunning beach and walk all the way to Tywyn if you want! The beach is very dog-friendly, with only the first few hundred metres unavailable for dog walking in the main season (31 March - 31 October).

Just 1 1/2 miles north of Ceinws is the neighbouring village of Corris, where you can visit the Corris Craft Centre and King Arthur's Labyrinth, and ride on the Corris Railway.

A little further north at Talyllyn lies the stunning Llyn Mwyngil, a glacial lake at the foot of Cadair Idris. Talyllyn is also the railhead for the narrow gauge steam Talyllyn Railway, which runs down to the coast at Tywyn.


Staying Locally

There are lots of options for local accommodation. Here are a few of our nearest.
