Tywyn in Gwynedd is a little seaside town on the coast of Cardigan Bay, which makes the perfect base for an outdoor activity-based break, while staying in a holiday cottage.

Tywyn beach has long stretches of sand and is backed by sand dunes. There is also a Victorian promenade to stroll down when you don’t feel like getting sand on your feet. For those who wish to learn to surf, Tywyn beach is a good place to start, with fairly safe waters but reliable surfing waves.

Cycling and walking are popular activities in Tywyn, with many different trails and footpaths nearby. Try walking from the Mawddach estuary to the Dyfi estuary, taking with you a picnic for a great family day out.

Nearby attractions include the Dolgoch Falls which are a number of different waterfalls which are situated on the way between Tywyn and Abergynolwyn. They are a popular place to walk to from Dolgoch station.

On a rainy day, or perhaps if you’ve had enough of walking, take the Talyllyn Steam Railway from Tywyn Station up to the pretty Fathew Valley. The train stops at different stations on the way there if you wish to explore other towns.
