Further details outdoors:
Mawddach Crescent is a row of 8 turn-of-the-century Edwardian houses built on private land on the edge of the Mawddach Estuary on the west coast of North Wales.
Accessed via a private road through farmland, the Crescent is tucked in the lee of the Fegla Fawr hill, and offers stunning views across the estuary and the Snowdonia National Park.
The nearest town is Fairbourne, about 5 minutes away by car, around 10 minutes by bike. Home to a small supermarket, post office, fish and chip shop and a butchers (with excellent pork pies!), it also has a launderette in case of need. And don't miss out on Indiana, the surprisingly good Indian Restaurant.
Barmouth (Abermaw) is located on the other side of the estuary, but can be easily reached on foot, bike or by train by crossing the 900 metre Afon Mawddach bridge - a footbridge is incorporated in the landward side. Barmouth offers a number of cafes, restaurants and pubs, as well as amusement arcades, fishing trips and a large supermarket.
Dolgellau, about 20 minutes away by car, is the largest local town, and offers a full range of shops including a supermarket, bike shop, hardware store, and so on.

Having just booked our second holiday here for the summer, i felt it deserved a review. I stayed here end of last August with my partner and two children aged 14 and 9. A regular visitor to the surrounding area of Barmouth, we knew the area well so on first booking Mawddach Crescent, i was quietly confident that it would be good but nothing quite prepared us for rounding that last corner to the property and realising just how perfect a spot it was!
We took our bikes which is an absolute must for anyone staying here as it makes getting to and from Barmouth quick and easy even for someone not overly active...(like me!) Not to mention the endless cycle paths readily accessable from the doorstep.
The accommodation is basic, stylish and homely, adequately providing all that we needed coupled with the most amazing views from the front room windows. Being a Terraced property, outside we found ourselves socialising with neighbours whilst sitting on the wall crab fishing, my childrens favourite past time which kept us entranced for hours. A pleasurable 10 minute walk or even quicker bike ride and you are over the estuary into Barmouth which is a very pretty welsh seaside town with beautiful sandy beaches, sand dunes, donkey rides, harbour, icecream parlour, plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants to choose from.
No where have i been quite as beautiful and peaceful as here and we all can't wait to go back.
