Owner description: Barmouth developed as one of the major ship building centres in Wales during the 18th & 19th centuries. The harbour still has a small fishing industry but is mainly used by pleasure craft. The estuary is home to Merioneth Yacht Club. Lining the edge of the harbour are cafes, ice-cream parlours and a pub with pleasant gardens to sit out in and watch the world go by.

“Family budget orientated”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

very budget family orientated, though looking a little dated, but served a purpose, Caught a rather packed train from Aberdovey, considering its peak season , only 2 carriages on the train
All in all Barmouth is ok for a few hours, the beaches though are a winner, very clean

“gem of a museum”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

When you are in Barmouth then please make a little time to pop into this wonderful little museum just off the harbour. It is full of character, giving a fascinating insight to the towns` history. It is free, relying on donations and the volunteer guides are great to talk to, full of information. Also visit the Round House just a few metres away, this was the town `lock-up` in the 1800`s, men on one side and the other side for women!

“Nice old style harbour”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Not as big and extravagant as some harbours I've been to but makes it very picturesque. Quiet in the off peak season but heaving in the on peak season. Very nice selection of restaurants to choose from all fresh fish. Beach is round the corner and small boat rides to the other side of the estuary. Dogs permitted in most shops and on boats

“Beautiful landscape”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

one of my favourite places - the bay with wide stretches of beach and the sand dunes, very clean, boats in the harbour, looking out to sea or at the fabulous mountains, the clean and well kept town and many shops and good eateries.
