Coes Faen Lodge is the perfect place to base yourself to explore this stunning corner of Wales, and if you are into activities, the range on offer is world class and will not disappoint. From mountain biking at Coed y Brenin, horse riding at Bwlchgwyn, underground adventures at Betws-y-Coed and Blaenau Ffestiniog, zip-wires at Blaenau and Bethesda, a surf centre at Dolgarrog, rock climbing 1 mile away, canoeing and sea kayaking on the estuary, sailing, and of course a wonderful choice of walks, from the gentle to the most strenuous -- just ask for advice to help your planning.

The Mawddach Estuary, where Coes Faen Lodge is located, is one of the most scenic, beautiful and unspoiled in Europe. It is 7 miles long and about a mile wide, running at the bottom of a Glacial Valley that is bordered by Cadair Idris and its ridges to the South, and the Rhinogs, topped by Diffwys, running along the North. The area offers a brilliant combination of water, mountains, lakes, rivers, beaches and forests, combining to present a ruggedly beautiful series of landscapes, constantly changing in response to weather, season, time of day, and tide.

Gardens

Grounds & Gardens

One of the surprising and magical aspects of Coes Faen Lodge is the beautiful woodland gardens that lie behind the house, laid out improbably romantically among the steep rocky slopes.

Tracks & Trails

Coes Faen is just 500 metres from Snowdonia National Park; very handy if you fancy exploring some unfamiliar terrain in Britain’s top adventure destination.

Serious legwork is rewarded with astonishing views from the summit of Cadair Idris. Or you can go down a gear and view it from the ground up on the Mawddach Trail cycle path.

Sand & Surf

As any local fisherman will tell you, the North Wales coast is best seen from the water. In these parts, all water-based activities come complete with awesome mountain backdrop, so grab your camera and get out there.

Fish from a boat. Spot dolphins and seals. Sail round Cardigan Bay. Or try your hand at canoeing and kayaking and have a blast on the Mawddach River.
