How to get to Glan Gors

36 Glan Gors is easily accessible by car or train and is a few minutes walk from the station at Harlech.
Although it's not essential to have a car to get to Glan Gors and the coast can be explored using trains or buses, if you wish to go inland and into the mountains a car is a must.

Travelling by train.

Harlech is on the Cambrian coast line and has some direct connections from Birmingham. The property is a short walk (along a flat road) away from the station but there are taxi firms that can be pre-booked if you prefer not to walk or have heavy luggage. 3 local firms are:

Harlech Taxi 01766 780331 or 07967687835

Duke's Taxis 01766 514799

Elite Cars 01766 781313 or 07833510856

We can't personally vouch for these firms as we haven't used them but they are local firms.

 


Travelling by car

From the north take the A496 from Maentwrog & take a right turn (still the A496) after you go through the village of Talsarnau. As you enter lower Harlech the Morfa garage (Texaco) is on the left hand side of the road and immediately opposite this is the right turn into Glan Gors estate.
From the south via Barmouth: go north on the A496 & about 2 miles after passing through Llanbedr follow the road downhill , past Royal St David's golf course on your left & then over the railway crossing. The Morfa garage is on your right hand side & you turn left into the estate opposite this garage.
Turn into the car park on the left that has a large tree by its entrance & park there. In the far corner of the car park there is a path heading in the direction of the school playing field fence. This leads to number 36, which is the ground floor property nearest to the fence.

Please view the map to see where the property is in relation to the car park.
