Pentrefoelas

Pentrefoelas is renowned as the home of the 'fair folk', and there are numerous enchanting tales of their antics connected with the village. Today the village and the surrounding area are popular for walking, and indeed Pentrefoelas has been recognised as a 'Walkers are Welcome Village'.

Five circular walks on public footpaths that begin and end in the centre of the village offer an opportunity to explore and enjoy walks from 5km to 20km across the Hiraethog and to the lakes of Llyn Alwen and Llyn Brenig. Two free car parks in the village make it easy to use Pentrefoelas as a base for exploring the area. Refreshments are available in the village at the famous Riverside Chocolate House & Tearoom, or at one of the number of good pubs and inns in the surrounding villages.

Pentrefoelas is a fine example of an estate village. It takes its name from Foel-las, a nearby small hill, once the site of a simple castle.
