It is wrapped around by the soft green lush hills and oak woodlands that are home to gently chomping sheep and myriad freewheeling birds. Just a whisper away from the Southern reaches of Snowdonia National Park the summit of Cader Idris visible from village (snow capped in winter). At the centre of the village there is a characterful, friendly historic pub and village shop. 11th C church in Llan.
