Reviews

Wonderful place to spend family holidaysChristian Muller - 22nd August 2018
Loved our stay!! Kirsty from West Midlands - 29th April 2018
We were very happy with the property, the location and freindly welcome from the owners made it a great week.Mr Matthew Abrahams - 1st April 2018
Absolutely wonderful. The property was simply perfectJane from Lancashire - 4th January 2018
Would have used the raised patio area with sea views more had it not rained so much! Light and bright, upside down barn conversion was super clean.
Recommendations: The Mawddach cycling trail and Coed-y-brenin MTB centre are superb. Beautiful scenery, especially into the hills, but Barmouth town has little to offer apart from it's long beach.Family from Derbyshire - 10th June 2017
Picturesque
The views from the barn are stunning. However the welcome from everyone we met, especially the property hosts was so warm and friendly, we will definately return.Sian - 30th May 2017
Absolutely delightful! Charming owners; fabulous cottage; beautiful position - fields full of lambs and wonderful beach on the doorstep!
Tips: Try Norbar - a newly re-opened restaurant 2 minutes from the cottage. Fab bar-style food in a very trendy, stylish setting. Also the Mermaid fish and chips bar in Barmouth is great for a classic takeaway.Nicky from Surrey - 8th April 2017
Too short! Would like to have stayed longer. Very friendly and welcoming owner, comfortable and clean cottage. Would certainly recommend and return!
Diolch yn fawr! (Thank you very much!)
Dyffryn beach is huge and peaceful.Guest from West Midlands - 19th March 2017
It was our second visit to this lovely cottage and we were delighted to have a holiday that was just as enjoyable, despite inclement weather.
Can't go wrong with any of the Great Little Trains of Wales.David from Southam, Warwickshire - 26th February 2017

Local Area

This beautiful, detached Barmouth holiday cottage is located in Llanaber, 1 mile from Barmouth (shops, restaurants, bars etc) on the North Wales coast. A very short walk to the nearest beach and just a 5 minute walk to Barmouth’s amazing blue flag beach. Beudy Gwenoliaid cottage with sea views also benefits from having one foot in the countryside, with walks leading to the hills from the doorstep.

And then you have Mawddach Way, including the beautiful Barmouth Bridge crossing that can be joined 1 mile away. It has been said that there is "no better walk than from Barmouth through to Dolgellau other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth". The views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary are phenomenal, an experience not to be missed, especially at sunset.

10 miles north along the coast is the picturesque village of Harlech with its nationally and internationally renowned golf course in a breathtaking setting, dominated by the brooding presence of Harlech Castle. For keen mountain bikers, the world renowned Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre is also nearby.

The ferry crossing from Barmouth to Fairbourne and the steam train at Fairbourne offers another great day out, just minutes from this beautiful Barmouth holiday cottage with sea views. If you have time, the Italian village of Portmeirion is also worth a visit and with Snowdonia National Park being so close, a walk to the top of Snowdon could well be on the cards.
