Barmouth is a rapidly developing beautiful seaside town where good commercial units are increasingly hard to come by.


Barmouth on the west coast of North Wales and lying between a mountain range and the sea on the mouth of the river Mawddach is arguably one of the most beautiful locations in Wales. It rests just within the south west corner of Snowdonia National Park and is steeped in a history rich with connections to the shipping and slate industries. The old town offers a good selection of restaurants, shops, public houses, hotels and other accommodation. The harbour is beautiful with its spectacular bridge spanning the river and the large beach is renowned as one of the finest in Cardigan Bay. This former HSBC bank building is located towards the lower end of the High Street and is a stones throw from Barmouth's wonderful sandy beach.
