Yes far too harsh. Go out of season and you'll have a completely different experience. Been here many a time over the last 5 years and it never loses its charm for me. The only things I do not like are the fairground and factory...More

Some narrow pavements but interesting architecture the houses are very different ranging from 5/6 stories to cottages, loads of steps leading to other interesting buildings, shops, restaurants and pubs, cafes, etc

Uphill but what a view. Beautiful little houses and very clean. Well worth the uphill struggle and some may find this too strenuous.

Some might find the uphill climb via the steps a bit strenuous, but 'no pain, no gain'...the views from up here are breath-taking. If you're struggling, you could always catch your breath on one of the benches situated on the way up. Head for the...More

The beach is a well maintained and clean one. The old Barmouth is quaint with old stone houses and buildings. The shops are unusual and different.
