Places to Visit in Hiraethog

One of Hiraethog’s greatest attractions is undoubtedly the stunning scenery of the Hiraethog moors. Get close to this wild and alluring landscape at the Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre – on the shores of beautiful Llyn Brenig where all sorts of opportunities for walking, biking, fishing, sailing and all manner of water sports are on offer. Or alternatively at Alwen Reservoir, where you can join take to two wheels – or to two feet – along the Alwen Trail which follows the shoreline of the lake for seven miles.

Wildlife lovers will enjoy Clocaenog Forest, where you may be lucky and catch a glimpse of rare wildlife such as red squirrels, black grouse and several species of butterfly.  Clocaenog is also a great place to cycle, walk and just to enjoy some peace and quiet.

The Henry Jones Museum in Llangernyw gives a fascinating insight into the early life of this Welsh educational reformer; or go back to the heyday of rock ‘n’ roll at The Museum of the 50's Era in nearby Denbigh town, where a mixture of cars, furniture and all sorts of items from the era are on display.

Watch local craftsmen at work and perhaps even pick up a beautiful memento of your stay in Hiraethog at one of the many galleries and artists’ studios in the area, including Glassblobbery – for all things glass and the Anvil Pottery.

For those seeking something with a bit more of an adrenalin rush, why not try outdoor karting at Glan Y Gors Park - a British championship circuit and the largest kart circuit in Wales?
