Using Public Transport to Hafan Y Mor and beyond

Hi. We're travelling from the Midlands to stay at Hafan Y Mor (Pwllheli) next week. I've been advised to get off the train at PenyChain. Is it far to walk to the holiday site please? Also, is it easy to get out and about to see local area, i.e. Porthmadog etc on public transport? Thanks x

Hafan y Mor was originally the site of a Butlins holiday camp and holiday trains ran regularly to Penychain station. Penychain is an unstaffed halt now and has no facilities, but it is within easy walking distance to the camp entrance. Trains call by request so you will need to inform the guard if you wish to alight there. Oddly, the Haven web site does not mention Penychain, in stead directing you to Pwllheli.The bus service by Arriva links Pwllheli to Porthmadog and passes the camp entrance and also passes through Criccieth. Porthmadog has two narrow guage railways if you like that sort of thing. You can of course use the train to visit Criccieth, Porthmadog, Harlech and Barmouth.Buses also run to Abersoch and Caernarvon from Pwllheli.
