North Wales is a stronghold of Welsh language, culture and identity. A rural area of mainly mountains, valleys and beaches, its natural beauty has led to tourism becoming the main industry of the region.

North Wales is the perfect holiday destination for families with a wide range of family-orientated activities such as zoos, steam trains and farm parks. Popular sporting activities in the area include cycling, fishing, walking, water sports and golf, among many more.
Dragonfly Cottage sits two miles from the market town of Dolgellau which sits on the southern side of the beautiful Mawddach Estuary. Dolgellau has a strong connection with its history, evidence of which is clearly visible around the town. It is a popular town with hikers and climbers thanks to its location at the foot of the peak of Cader Idris. There are three trails to take you to the summit of the mountain varying in length and difficulty. For keen birdwatchers, the osprey nest site at nearby Glaslyn is a must-see. If you prefer to stay in town, do your best to time your visit to coincide with Dolgellau’s lively farmers’ market on the third Sunday of every month. This takes place in the town centre and a wide variety of local produce and craft can be sampled and enjoyed.
