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.
