The local area guide to living in Llanbedr

The popular village of Llanbedr is sat between the unspoiled Rhinog mountains and the beaches of the Cambrian coast. Named after St Peter, the village also has a Grade 2 church named after him. While quiet, there is a real community feel about the village, which is also home to a few local shops, pubs and restaurants.

Due to its close proximity to Shell Island, a popular tourist spot located two miles away, accommodation in Llanbedr is plentiful and the area does attract tourists. This means there’s a wide variety of perks for residents here including sailing, horse riding and mountain trekking.

The village originally grew around the slate quarrying industry and snippets of the village’s history can be found all around. Attractions include Neolithic standing stones, the Stones of Llanbedr, and Bronze Age hut circles, with many more attractions nearby.

Llanbedr has also recently reopened an airport, which, until recently, was operated by the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency and QinetiQ for use by the RAF and other UK forces.

Information about the local residents

The tiny village houses just 645 people, as recorded in the 2011 census. Most of the working age residents are employed full-time, but a sizeable proportion of the village is retired, with the median age of residents sitting at 42.

The area is recognised as neither privileged nor socially or economically disadvantaged and only 6% of pupils are in receipt of free school meals. This is much lower than local and national averages. The majority of houses are also owned outright, with approximately 16% of properties being council or housing association accommodations.

Despite its size, the village is home to two good primary schools. Families here will have the option of sending their children to Ysgol Gynradd Llanbedr or Llanbedr Primary School, both of which have a good reputation. In its recent inspection in 2011, Ysgol Gynradd Llanbedr had 47 pupils on roll. The school’s current performance and prospects for improvement were both rated as ‘good’.
