Living in Fairbourne: the local area guide

Fairbourne is a very small seaside village in north Wales, resting on the southern shore of the Mawddach Estuary at the edge of Snowdonia National Park. The village is actually built amid the ‘morfa’, or marshes, typical of the area. It lies at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains beneath dramatic cliffs.

The town’s founding was greatly influenced by Sir Arthur McDougall, who aimed to develop it as an ocean-side resort, a development that was supported by the railway’s opening in 1865. You might recognise the name is the same as the self-rising flour brand, which Sir Arthur founded. One of his lasting legacies in the town is the narrow gauge tramway, also known as the Fairbourne and Barmouth Railway, which still operates as a popular tourist attraction.

Today, Fairbourne is a thriving village with its own European Blue Flag Beach and the green spaces and waterscapes of the Snowdonia National Park at its doorstep. The village is comprised of a range high and middle-end properties nestled in a peaceful, unique rural landscape. It benefits from all the essentials in terms of amenities and shops, as well as good transport connections to the surrounding area.

Demographics

There are just over 1,000 people in the town of Fairbourne, approximately 1,174 as of 2011. According to the Census data for the wider county of Gwynedd, which Fairbourne is a part of, the people of the area are quite well off, at least, in comparison to most of Wales, enjoying higher employment and better health.

There are also 5% more homeowners than average in the county, with many of those not having a mortgage, at least, compared to the larger Welsh population. This population is also slightly older than the population at large, with the mean age sitting just about a year above national statistics.

Education

There’s a primary school to be found in the town, the Fairbourne Primary School, though if parents wish to send their children elsewhere, the Barmouth Primary School is just across the ocean strait. While it can be driven to, by going along the mainland, the Barmouth ferry is a far quicker route, as is the train line.

Ysgol Y Gader secondary school is just 20 minutes away, in Dolgellau, and another secondary school, Ysgol Uwchradd Tywyn, can be found in Tywyn. Ysgol Uwchradd Tywyn is a co-educational secondary school that was lauded by the Welsh government for its extremely high standards, and, in fact, dubbed the school “with the highest standards”.

Transport

The Fairbourne railway station runs regular services between April and October, with its ferry connections running onto Barmouth. There are also some bus services that run to the surrounding towns, with connections to larger regional hubs. The A493 runs close by to the town, and connects to the larger Welsh roads, like the A470 which runs north, and the A487 that runs down south to Aberystwyth.

Amenities and shopping

From Fairbourne, the beautiful character and charm of the Welsh coastline is within easy reach to explore, including all the lovely B&Bs, cottages, guest houses and upmarket hotels which dot the iconic landscape. The Bae Abermaw Hotel and Bryn Melyn Guest House are noteworthy establishments worth a weekend getaway or day trip.

There are a wide array of dining options within easy reach, from typical English and continental cuisine to curry takeaways. Indiana Cuisine is an Indian restaurant in Fairbourne with an excellent reputation and vegetarian options.

Fairbourne Chippy is renowned for its delicious fresh fish and chips, and, of course, there is plenty of traditional pub fare in the many pubs in and around Fairbourne. There are also a number of little cafes and bistros with excellent local pastries and cakes. Sports and outdoors enthusiasts have much to enjoy in Fairbourne, with fishing, cycling and watersports popular around the estuary and all the shops and clubs for equipment, repair, lessons and support.
