warm welcome awaits you at Cefn Uchaf. Translated as 'the highest ridge',
Cefn Uchaf is a family run farm Guest house set in beautiful open
countryside overlooking the timeless splendour of Snowdonia's Cwm Pennant
Cefn Uchaf is situated in a perfect position to enable you to explore the
Llyn Peninsula, an area of remote and natural beauty with miles of empty
sandy beaches and coves. Discover this, the ancient land of Celts with its
legacy of myths, legends and centuries old culture.
Away from the coast the rugged splendour of the Snowdonia National Park
awaits you, and Mount Snowdon is only a short drive away. If you would like
to see the wonderful panoramic view from the summit of Wales' highest peak,
choose from a variety of walks or for a less energetic trip to the top, take
a ride on the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
Cefn Uchaf is just four miles from the tranquil seaside town of Criccieth
with its 13th century castle and award winning beaches. Only a short drive
away is the town of Porthmadog, home to The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland
narrow gauge railways. Just outside Porthmadog is the Italianate Village of
Portmeirion, with its wonderful gardens and architecture, made famous by the
cult TV series 'The Prisoner'. 15 miles to the north lies the town of
Caernarfon with its magnificent 13th century castle, the scene of the
Investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in 1969.
