Enjoy a Taste of Porthmadog!

Wales and in particular Porthmadog, Penrhyndeudraeth and the surrounding area is a place that my husband, Kevin and I fell in love with, whilst holidaying here in 2011 – so much so that we moved here to enjoy all the area has to offer! We really didn’t expect to see such joys in the town – had we known then about visit wales ( I am sure that we would have set our expectations higher. It is definitely worth reading up on their website and signing up on their sustainable and environmental promises- Addo. You can also get a flavour of the landscape, epic skies, and wildlife here too.

In Porthmadog town, we are so fortunate to have an array of local shops, places to eat out and fantastic local foodstuffs for when you fancy a cosy night in, experiencing the high quality local produced items which is also sustainable as the items haven’t travelled millions of miles to reach our plate but taste so delicious!
