| Events in Fairbourne | 10 Places to Stay

Fairbourne is an attractive coastal village close to Barnmouth Bay which is positioned on the northern edge of Wales. This small seaside resort evolved when Mr McDougall, of flour fame, realised that this would be an ideal and safe holiday destination. Possibly the two miles of spectacular golden sandy beaches and attractive scenery was a deciding factor. At the southern end of the beach there are impressive and dramatic sea cliffs which rise skywards, and there's also amusements and donkey rides. A gentle stroll along the narrow lanes of the village will uncover the pretty welsh stone cottages and houses which line the roads, and there's a good choice of shops for that essential purchase, a handful of bars, and welcoming pubs for coffee or something a little stronger and a cafe. When Mr McDougall embarked on his ideal village, he built a railway line which was used to transport the supplies needed for its construction in 1895, and the fabulous steam railway is still operational in the village and beyond today. The area will tempt walkers as there are footpaths which network across the hills and Cader Idris Mountains overlooking the village, and the surrounding beauty of Snowdonia National Park. .
