About this location
The Gwynedd region
Dyffryn Ardudwy is a village with population of 1,700, situated on the A496 coastal road between Barmouth and Harlech and at the foot of Moelfre part of the Rhinog range.
There are a number prehistoric cromlechs (tombs) around the village and date from around 4,000 BC. Nearby is an avenue which was built by the powerful Vaughan dynasty (who were instrumental in placing Henry VII of England on the throne in 1485). The exisitng mansion was built in 1576. Visitors may walk up the lane, round perimiter of the estate and on towards the summit of Moelfre.
There is an excellent general store (including Post Office) just 40yds from the cottage and London Stores (approx 400yds) which boasts an award winning butcher.
Barmouth is located on the west coast of Wales between a mountain range and sea on the mouth of the river Mawddach. It is one of the beautiful locations in Wales lying in the south west corner of Snowdonia National Park. Panorama walk can be reached via steep steps between cottages in the town centre and the walk across the railway bridge affords spectacular views.
Barmouth is renowned for it's quality of beaches which stretch for miles. It is also home to the Fairbourne & Barmouth Railway track. A ferry takes you across the estuary to Penrhyn Point where the narrow gauge railway greets you for the journey to Fairbourne. If the weather is fine, walk across the bridge, following the sea wall round to Penrhyn Point and catch the ferry back to Barmouth harbour.
There are excellent eating places along the Barmouth front and nearby 'The Last Inn' (highly rated).
The Mawddach estuary is an area of outstanding natural beauty and there are walks to suit all, including the former track of the Cambrian Coast line from Dolgellau to Barmouth (South end of the bridge).

"Very nice cottage"
Ty Uchaf is cosy and pleasant to stay in. Never seen as many games , DVD's etc to keep the children occupied in any other cottage we have stayed in, which for a damp October stay was quite important, as for most of the week I had four grandchildren age 14. 9. 6 and five to keep occupied and happy as my daughter had to go back to work. Having a good internet connection was another plus. The station was in easy walking distance for us and we made good use of this to go up and down the line. Looking forward to staying in summer as the beach looked lovely though it is a twenty minute walk from the cottage, perfectly acceptable for my lot. Beds and pillows comfy with good quality linen, kitchen well equipped, the only downside was with it being dark evenings I was cooking with the light behind me so couldn't see what I was doing at the stove, in summer that wouldn't be a problem as the light would be coming in the windows on to the stove . Well equipped separate utility room. All together a very nice cottage at a very reasonable price. Thank you Bob and Rosie Esterbrook
