Llanbedr is an attractive village situated in Gwynedd, North West Wales. Originally, a slate mining village, today Llanbedr concerns itself with tourism and the attractions of the surrounding area. Llanbedr sits alongside the River Artro among glorious Welsh countryside. The village is just a mile from the picturesque estuary of the River Artro at Llandanwg.
Among the sand dunes can be found the parish church of Saint Tanwg. The old church probably dates from the 13th Century, but two inscribed stones are evidence of Christianity in Llandanwg from the early 6th Century.
Many pass through Llanbedr en route between the larger resorts of Harlech and Barmouth; however, those in the know pause a while at Llanbedr. Walkers appreciate the fabulous countryside both within and at the head of the valley of the River Artro.
