Ynys Giftan Island is situated in the Dwyrd Estuary in a rural location overlooking the picturesque town of Portmeirion and provides panoramic views of stunning coastline, mountains and the Irish Sea. The Island is approximately 3 miles from the popular town of Harlech and 10 miles from the town of Porthmadog. It is accessible by boat at high tide and at low tide by foot, tractor or other suitable vehicle for traveling across the Estuary.

One of only 43 of Britain’s unbridged tidal islands, Ynys Giftan is in the wide Afon Dwyryd estuary near the village of Talsarnau in Gwynedd, North Wales. The Island has been unoccupied for many years and has a unique history. It is said to have been gifted to the current Lord Harlech’s ancestors by Queen Anne in the early 1700s, hence it became known as

Ynys Giftan (‘Anne’s Gift Island’).

The Island is located within the Snowdonia National Park, an area steeped in culture and local history and a hugely popular tourist destination noted for its great beauty, wonderful walks, rides and beeches.

The Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, is easily visible from the Island. Portmeirion is a popular tourist

destination in its own right and the location of the unique Festival No 6.

The Island’s location provides it with ideal opportunities for maximising tourism and responses and expressions of interest would be welcomed on the basis of any future Tenant broadening the tourism strengths of the Island and maintaining and enhancing the wider public’s affection for the Island.
