Place Description

Llanfairfechan is situated between the Lafan Sands and Snowdonia National Park. The area has been populated with hillforts and farmsteads for at least 7,000 years. These settlements were repositioned with the acquisition of estate land in the 1,500s and formed the village that is still recognisable today. In the early twentieth century, architect Herbert North built houses and buildings in the Arts and Crafts style. The population grew to more than 3,500 people during this period and this has remained constant to the present day. In the 1950s, more than 85 traditional shops provided services to Llanfairfechan. Since then, fitness professionals, home improvement businesses, hairdressers and beauty salons have tailored these premises to fit our current lifestyles. However, the village still has a local butcher, several pubs and takeaways, a blacksmith and a post office.
