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.

    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.

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.
