Canolfan Y Fron

Welcome to the village at the foot of ‘Elephant’ Mountain


The small village of Y Fron is located in the middle of a rugged upland common in Snowdonia, just 6 miles south of Caernarfon. The cuckoo visits every May, the skylarks sing the summer long, and sheep and cattle roam free. Originally founded by slate quarry workers Y Fron is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and perfectly located for a Snowdonia holiday, being close to the mountains, the sea and the centres of Caernarfon, Porthmadog, Pwllheli and Bangor.

CEGIN FRON

As of tonight, Cegin Fron is closing for a short while.  During this time we intend to reinvent and improve our services.  With Covid restrictions easing we have many new and exciting plans such as our outdoor eating area and gaining an alcohol licence.  We ask you to be patient and watch this space!!  Thank you.

LLETY ACCOMMODATION

The Llety reopened in July with Covid-19 measures accredited to the ‘Good to Go’ standards developed by the British tourist industry. Please note that accommodation in Wales is subject to changing Welsh Government Covid-19 requirements including restrictions on travel from England. 

We regret that due to Welsh Government advice and the Covid-19 limit of six people gathering indoors we have had to close the shared kitchen in the Llety. We have fitted tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. You can purchase food in Siop Fron and we will soon be stocking breakfast bags for purchase by our guests.

You can make bookings on this web site, by calling 01286 880882 or go to Booking.com, Expedia or Airbnb where you will find the Llety by searching for accommodation in Upper Llandwrog.

    Llety Y Fron


    The new and unique visitor accommodation is suitable for groups of up to 18, or for individuals and families. The accommodation wing has 16 beds sleeping up to 18 guests in four stylish and comfortable en suite rooms, with a shared community area including a kitchen, changing rooms, secure outdoor equipment store and electric car charging points. Free Wi-Fi throughout. The whole Llety can be booked for groups by contacting us direct AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE as these bookings on busy weekends often go many months, or even years in advance. We are in the centre of a quiet rural village so we are not suitable for groups specifically seeking a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, pubs and hostelries. To enquire or book at the cheapest rate contact 01286 880882 or email [email protected]

    Caffi Yr Eliffant


    Taking its name from Mynydd Mawr, our ‘elephant’ mountain, the Caffi specialises in breakfasts, simple day fare, cakes, teas and coffees. The Caffi is an ideal stop for walkers on the North Wales Pilgrims Way or the Snowdonia Slate Trial or cyclists doing a climb to the village. Dogs on leads are welcome if they are well behaved. The views from the Caffi of the Nantlle Ridge across the valley are ever changing, and worth a visit any time of the year.

    Siop Fron - our local village shop


    Our community shop, the closest in 3 miles, caters for residents and visitors alike with a selection of basic groceries, dairy and eggs, fruit and vegetables, confectionery, drinks, newspapers, and solid fuel supplies. We also sell local produce and crafts, including cards and souvenirs of the area. The friendly staff are mostly local volunteers, who will give you a special welcome and do their very best to make sure you get what you’re looking for.


My Mountain


'Giant Mountain' when winter bites
And 'Heather Mountain' when summer delights
But to a visitor passing by,
It is just an elephant against the sky.

Mei Mac

Y Fron


In Snowdonia’s bosom nestles a village,
Far from the world’s turmoil and madness,
Might, strength and beauty surrounds An everlasting beauty.
