The village of Waunfawr sits in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, in Gwynedd, North Wales. Waunfawr is just 6 miles north west of the summit of Snowdon, and 4 miles south east of the medieval walled town and World Heritage Site of Caernarfon.
The Bryn Pistyll site of the Antur Waunfawr (Waunfawr Adventure) project is situated right in the village. Bryn Pistyll is a brilliant nature park open to the public, with plenty to see and do, including nature trails, woodland, nurseries, gardens, a Crafts Barn, adventure playground and gift shop. Away from Waunfawr, the castle in Caernarfon was built by Edward I in 1285, and is a historical monument appreciated by visitors from all corners of the world. The beautiful village of Beddgelert lies 13 miles south of Waunfawr along the A4085 and is a splendid village to visit, seeping in history and legend. Walkers have a choice of trails that criss-cross the landscape, including the iconic Welsh walks up Snowdon itself. Accommodation in Waunfawr consists of the Snowdonia Park Camping Site, with facilities including free hot showers, and next-door visitors can find the Snowdonia Park pub, which has appeared in the CAMRA Real Ale Guide and provides delicious meals throughout the day.
