1) Tywyn Beach
Such a beach could be somewhere in Andalusia or Fuerteventura. This really is one of the best we've visited in recent years and it's hard to say anything negative about this place. Long, wide with picturesque dunes and no crowds of tourists (most important!).
We went on a lovely autumn day and the views across the sea were spectacular. We had a lovely few hours here and will definitely be returning!
2) Coed y Brenin Forest Park
Coed y Brenin Forest Park is such a beautiful place to visit, featuring lovely walks whatever your ability and mountain biking trails well signed. If you can the walk to the two waterfalls which are hidden away it is definitely worth it!
There is also a lovely cafe to sit in/outside to enjoy the stunning views.
3) Harlech Castle
Harlech Castle is an amazingly preserved castle which is accessible to enter and explore upper floors around the structure. There are also fantastic views out to the sea on a clear day.
Tickets can be purchased on entry for under £10 each and we personally feel like it's well worth it as the proceeds go towards ensuring the castle is maintained and restored!
4) Portmeirion Village
Portmeirion is a truly beautiful place to visit, and often gets compared to a cute Italian village! It features beautiful gardens, amazing architecture, and beautiful woods to walk through!
We definitely recommend walking through the woods to the viewpoint over the estuary, and the best bit is the whole village has accessible paths!
5) RSPB Conwy Nature Reserve
RSPB Conwy is a fabulously landscaped area which was created from earth and stones dug out from the creation of the tunnel under the river, and turned into this nature reserve.
The landscaping in beautiful, with a central lake area and various hides and viewing areas around the trails, most of which are level gravel paths and are easily accessible. There is also a wooded walkway area that really feels like you are in another world, especially in the late evenings!
6) Barmouth Beach
Barmouth Beach is a lovely sandy beach with a nice little town with plenty of places to eat and shops to browse around. This really is where the mountains meet the sea!
Visitors can enjoy great views back into the estuary and the southern mountains of Eryri.
We hoped you enjoyed discovering the local finds and less known disabled friendly hidden gems which are scattered around London. We are confident that visiting some of these hidden gems will make your London trip even more memorable!
