Visit Maentwrog and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Maentwrog, Gwynedd. In the Vale of Ffestiniog, Maentwrog can be reached from Portmadoc, 7 miles away, on the road to Trawsfynydd. The descent from Portmadoc into the valley is one of the most striking sights on any road in Wales, and passes an old mansion that later became a roadside hotel. Routes from Bala, Dolgellau, and Betws-y-coed meet at the village. The name is taken from the great stone to be found in the churchyard; it was probably set beside the Roman roads that met here by Tomen y Mur, but it has been adopted into the legend of a giant called Twrog who threw it down from the surrounding hills. The church has been thoroughly modernized, but may well date from A.D. 610, when the giant is reputed to have died, and be in fact a sister foundation to Llandwrog not far from Caernarfon.
The great reservoir of Trawsfynydd is in the hills to the South of the village.
