Directions:On the A496 heading towards Harlech turn right at the LLandawg/LLainfair crossroads. At the next cross roads turn left then take the second right signposted Cwm Bychan. Keep on this road for approx. 1 mile, at the cross roads (with a chapel on the left) go straight ahead. After about half a mile take a right turn immediately after a small rubbish / recycling collection point. After about 200m you come to a gate in the road, go through it. After another 200m you get to another gate, go through it. The road goes down and up when the road becomes straighter and flatter there is a right turn down a narrow track ( if you get to a third gate you have gone too far) The farm and bunkhouse are at the end of the track about 400m. If using a satnav navigate to nearby village Llanfair first, or it may send you a difficult route.
Public Transport:Trains and buses to Harlech. Or buses to Llanfair, then it's a 3 mile walk or a taxi.
Walks:Long Distance Walks

A walkers’ paradise

Ffridd bunkhouse is a hidden gem. Open to the public for the first time, it’s one of Snowdonia’s best kept secrets. On one of the last farms before the mountains rise up to dominate this stunning landscape, it’s remote & peaceful & leads on to an area criss-crossed with footpaths.
Around the Rhinogs, the Mawddach-Ardudwy Trail, O Fôn i Fynwy (Walking Wales from End to End) and the Taith Ardudwy Way are on the doorstep. While the Meirionnydd Coast Walk, the North Wales Castles Trail and the Wales Coast Path go through the seaside town of Harlech which is just 2.5 miles down hill! The Cambrian Way and the Snowdonia Moutain Route are also both less than 3 miles away. Don’t let another summer pass by without treating yourself to a snowdonia mountain adventure. Ffridd Bunkhouse is just the place to stay.
