A wonderful getaway place. Lovely surroundings. Made to feel very welcome. Barmouth is very close and has lots of eateries.Couple from West Midlands - 22nd June 2017
Very well equipped cottage in beautiful grounds. Made welcome by the owners with extra little touches like chocolates and cake, also fruit and fresh flowers.
Recommends: The Victoria Inn at Llanaber is well worth a visit for good food.Family from Cannock - 12th June 2017
Comfortable, cosy well equipped cottage. Loved the garden, which was like a mini Bodnant Garden. The owners were very helpful, suggested some places to go, and allowed us to park our bikes in their laundry room. The family cycle trail in Coed y Brenin is very pretty and great fun, suitable for over 50's too. The views across the Mawddach estuary are stunning from Barmouth and Fairbourne, and from places along the Mawddach trail.Couple from Stockport - 27th May 2017

This self catering Barmouth cottage is located in the grounds of a country house and enjoys a spectacular setting within 2½ acres of gardens and woodland. The river Dwynant flows through the grounds before joining the Mawddach on the estuary just 0.3km away. The cottage is less than 2 miles from Barmouth with its award winning sandy beach, restaurants, a range of interesting shops and much more. It is also located in Snowdonia National Park and provides an excellent base to explore this beautiful area of North Wales.
There are plenty of good restaurants in the area, including Bistro Bermo, Bwyty Mawddach and The George III, all within 5 miles of your self catering Barmouth cottage. The nearest good pubs include the Last Inn in Barmouth and, once again, George III in Penmaenpool.
From historic castles and steam railways to magnificent walks and cycling routes, beautiful gardens, extreme sports and stunning scenery, this area of North Wales has it all. Some of the must do’s during your stay at the cottage include walking or cycling The Mawddach Trail and experiencing the phenomenal views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary, especially at sunset. Harlech Castle’s World Heritage Site is also worth a visit and for keen mountain bikers, the world renowned Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre is within a 20 minute drive.
The ferry crossing from Barmouth to Fairbourne and the steam train at Fairbourne offers another great day out, just minutes from your self catering Barmouth cottage. The Italian village of Portmeirion is another ‘must see’ and because you’re in Snowdonia National Park, a walk to the top of Cader Idris or even Snowdon could well be on the cards.
