One of the lovely things about Graig Wen and The Slate Shed B & B is that there are lots of walks you can do from here without having to use a car at all. As long as you can manage the steep track from our site to the Mawddach Estuary and back, then there are many walks suitable for different abilities and ages.

Yesterday I walked along the Mawddach Trail for a while where the dogs can run off their leads and there’s sweeping views across the beautiful estuary. During late Spring all along the trail there’s pink Sea Thrift, yellow Bird’s Foot Trefoil and wild strawberries coming out. The swallows and housemartins are diving through the air and swans and oystercatchers dabbling around the reeds. We headed up Arthog waterfalls through the cool woods and out onto the uplands. The ancient stone clapper bridge in the picture is a beautiful spot to dip your feet in the stream and eat your packed lunch. Once here you can choose various routes to explore the foot hills of Cadair Idris, with many offering epic views across Barmouth Bridge and Cardigan Bay.

Walks in this area taking in hidden valleys, abandoned chapels and quarries and lovely lakes are wonderful to do even on days when the cloud is low. If you are staying here please do come into reception and ask us for tips on walks and we will be happy to share some of our favourites with you.
