Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Glorious mountain landscape. Steady away will get you to the top. Not technical. Don't underestimate the wind. Swimming in the Tarn can be dangerous.

    Lovey trail to ride along and isn't difficult.

    Really beautiful walk, not difficult at all and the views are just outstanding. Definitely worth the effort. Took us about 1 hr 40mins, but with many, many stops to take photos and enjoy the view.

    Bit sad probably, but have wanted to cross this since seeing it every month for about 8 years many moons ago. Wasn't disappointed. What is probably 'just a bridge' to some people was a lovely, unspoilt little river crossing for us.

    Don't do this walk unless you have good route map or GPS guidance as we missed a few paths and finished up walking a lot further than we needed to and took us on some quite arduous sections. Well worth the effort to do the walk, although we only did one section and after 6+ miles we were treated to some amazing views, absolutely stunning to be honest, but we were glad to be making our way back down. We did the route up to the Lake, along the Levels and back down. Starting it in the village of Llanelltyd.

    One of Wales' hidden gems and it is well hidden from the road. Just look for a black gate and follow the path up to the church. From the outside the church doesn't look like anything special but once you step inside, it's just wow
    One of the best examples of the arts and crafts movement in a church. Well worth visiting.

    Lovely example of 18th century church with a wonderful array of stained glass windows. The church is open to visitors Mon-Wed (0900 to 1500)

    The ruins of this old Abbey are not far from Dolgellau and approached via a caravan park which can be a little confusing. The setting though is lovely, nestled in the woods.. There is plenty of information with easy parking. Not much remains of the Abbey apart from some arches and walls but its enough to show you the scale of what it must have been like in its heyday.

    I was walking in the forest this morning and passed by this tea room in a remote but fantastic location. It was a Monday so I doubted that it would have been open and as it wasn’t then I can only rate it on its location.
    A little further on, I stopped to chat with a very charming local inhabitant who told me that the tea garden was open at weekends and had been the previous weekend but I’m not certain if this applies during winter months.

    The market was in the ship, the library and the street due to the BBC filming a new drama. We bought some lovely fresh bread and coffee and were a bit disappointed we'd shopped for meat and eggs the day before as the stuff for sale looked beautiful. Dog friendly which is a massive plus point.

    Brilliant solo walk up Aran Fawddwy. Went clockwise from the little cabin I was staying in past Blaencywarch Farm. The start is very steep and demanding, and it gets boggy after you turn right. I walked to Aran Benllyn afterwards which wasn’t too demanding and added a fair bit of distance and time.

    This stone bridge spans the river just before the entrance to Dolgellau and marks the start of the Mawddach trail which leads all the way to Barmouth past the river estuary. I know little about the estuary but its a lovely piece of architecture.
