Sibrwd Y Dwr is a quaint and cosy, traditional beamed cottage, with three bedrooms, enjoys stunning sea & stream views and is in the heart of the village of Llyngwiral. This delightful stone cottage has been tastefully decorated to a very high standard, whilst retaining all its character features along with the comforts of modern living.

This charming and cosy property benefits from a wood burner in the living room as well as radiators in each room providing the main heating.

The village has a train station, gastro pub, art gallery, gift shop with cafe, and a convenience shop all within 2 minutes walking distance, the beach can be reached via a 10 minute picturesque walk that follows the river to the sea, crossing over the railway line and winding its way to the shoreline.

All rooms have sea views except for the two smaller bedrooms that overlook a stream. With a sunny west facing garden the sunsets are quite spectacular. In the winter you can sip wine, watch the sun go down in the warmth and comfort of the conservatory and in the summer enjoy the small but perfect garden & patio offering the perfect view point.

REVIEWS FROM 2013:

“Cottage with everything”

Reviewed August 23, 2013

Loved it and would like to go back. Best equipped home I have seen in many years self catering. Railway so close you don't need to drive anywhere. Sound of the rushing river lulls you to sleep at night, bliss! In the house it seems soundproof...I couldn't hear the banjo in the conservatory when I was in my bedroom, really important with a family.

Local beach 5 minutes walk, although shingle most of the time. Just a 5 minute ride away (car or train) Fairbourne is a wonderful beach, but elderly people or those unsure on their feet DO NOT ATTEMT the fall down the pebble bank. Easy to go to the end of the beach nearest the railway where there is a ramp. However the little golf club in middle of the town is very friendly and parking there is free if you buy a cup of tea! Indiana Cuisine there has delicious food. Really excellent, no grease and delicate flavours, and the chip shop is good value too.

Would love to go back..

Stayed for a week-long autumn break as couple with a 1-year old. We wanted a good location for touring but also a lovely cottage to spend time in as we wanted the break to be relaxing. We certainly got both! The cottage is superb -the photos on here don't really do it justice. Especially great was the charming living room with it's huge fireplace (with solid fuel burner- great in the evenings), and light and airy conservatory ajoining the kitchen. Both had stunning views of the sea which is so close- just a field between you and it. Our little boy liked looking at the cows in the field too. Breakfast in the conservatory was a delight with these views, as were cosy evenings with the fire aglow.

The owners were very accomodating and supplied stair gates, a travel cot and lovely wooden high chair for our little boy. They also phoned on the day of our arrival to check all was well. We had to do some additiional baby-proofing ourselves, but then that was to be expected! I should also add how spotlessly clean the place was, and well appointed- we had almost everything on hand we could have asked for, including wi-fi.

The little village had a pub and shop literally 1 minutes walk away, and a 5 minute stroll takes you down to the shingle beach with lovely views up to Barmouth. Not a sandy beach here but there are plenty of sandy beaches in the area. The location was great for exploring mid-wales. Going north, a scenic drive around the Mawddach estuary takes you up to Barmouth in around half an hour. Further north is stunning Harlech castle and quirky Portmeirion. Coed y Brenin forest park is a hidden gem which we really enjoyed. To the south you have Tywyn with it's beach, quaint Aberdovey, Borth and bustling Aberystwyth.

My only real criticisms would be that 1. The shower was never more than lukewarm, no matter what we did (I ssure you we follwed the instructions to the letter), and 2. I'm no fan of storage heaters; the heating seemed to be on a fixed pattern giving the guest very little control over the cottage's heating beyond switching the radiators off completely. The first night seemed cold (perhaps because the radiators had been off) and thereafter it got too hot during the night. Just a small niggle but when you have a baby you are very conscious of the need to regulate the temparature, and we are used to gas central heating which makes things much easier in this respect.

Despite these niggles though I would heartily recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone; in terms of location and the standard and character of the accommodation itself, you could hardly do better than this, at any time of the year. Excellent.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments we are so pleased you have enjoyed Sibrwd - We thought we had overcome the water pressure problem, however since this last visitors comments we have installed an electric shower which is not susceptible to the pressure variance, we have also asked the electricity board to replace the activator for the electric storage heaters and all seems well now, best wishes to all our visitors Lyn and Rob.

We stayed here with our teenage children and dog during the October half-term. The cottage is well-located with great views and within a couple of minutes of the village shop, pub and Cambrian Coast railway station. The cottage is well-appointed, including the kitchen. Alternatively, there are some good places to eat nearby, including the pub, and chip shop and family-run Indian restaurant in nearby Fairbourne. There is plenty to do in the area: our visits included the Tallylyn Railway, Corris Mine Explorers, Brenin y Coed mountain biking and climbing Cadair Idris

It's always difficult finding a place to stay when you dont want to drive so we were

pleased that this was such a good base. The Cambrian Coast train is great - just a 5 min walk away and takes you directly to Portmeirion, and Harlech. The beach at Llwyngwril is beautiful, vast and very peaceful. The house is lovely, views are gorgeous and the owners had thought of everything.

“Best House Rental in Wales”

Reviewed August 10, 2011

person found this review helpful

This house is the best place I've ever rented. The hosts have thought of everything guests might need in a beautiful and comfortable house. There's a notebook that explains just about everything in the house from how to work the tv to good hikes to take in the area. The view from the conservatory is great and looks out over pastures directly to the water. A train station, bus stop, convenience store and local pub are within a few minutes walk. The walk to the beach is less than ten minutes and takes you through some lovely scenery. You will not be disappointed if you rent this house.

“Pretty cottage with stunning views”

Reviewed July 7, 2011

Sibrwd Y Dwr is a well maintained cottage with great facilities and a view you'll not forget. The village location is convenient for supplies and the pub for snacks and a drink. In addition to this you are a pleasant 5 minute walk from the beach: excellent for dogs and children. The only downside we found was the hot water system seemed to have a mind of its own! You are within easy reach of Snowdonia to the east and Barmouth/Anglesey to the north. I would recommend the cottage to any one.

Just a note about the water system, the problem was due to water pressure and we have since installed a valve regulator to overcome this, thanks to everyone for your lovely reviews we are so glad you all seem to enjoy holidaying at Sibrwd, Lyn and Rob

We stayed at this property 4 June 2011 for one week. We came with our friends and my Grandson. We had a fantastic time, we love to come home after a full day at the beach and BBQ where we can all relax with a few drinks. the Kitchen was so well equipped, Fridge, Full Freezer, Dishwasher, Double Oven, Microwave, plenty of glasses, plates and cutlery could have catered for a family of 10. There is even a telephone and number supplied that you can leave with family etc., if they need to contact you in an emergency. In the evenings, the chaps would prepare the BBQ on great "Weber" BBQ, whilst we prepared the salads etc in the fab kitchen. We loved the additional storage area in the garden, which was our overflow for various drinks etc. We enjoyed fantastic sunsets overlooking the sea and sat out until late. When we did come in, we just gently moved a few paces into the fabulous conservatory and continued our evening. Even if it became a little chilled (which it didn't for us) there was additional support heating in the conservatory.

The Lounge has an amazing walk in fireplace with a wood burning stove, complete with logs should they be needed and candles and lamps abound! Games in abundance in the coffee table drawer which kept my Grandson entertained and some old movies and kids Videos as well as DVDs.

There is such a personal touch from the owners, how to access the property, where the alarms are located etc., lots of literature and detail on local interests and even a 'phone call from Rob the owner the day we arrived, to see if we had found everything and we had all we needed.

I loved this place because it was so easy, so relaxing and we truly felt that we had a holiday and recharged our batteries.

Would we revisit this property - Most definitely!!

The North Wales region

The region:

In The Snowdonia National Park, the village of Llyngwiril is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you want. Whatever you're into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore.

This region of Wales is without doubt a 'hidden gem' with some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. The Dysynni Valley is a walker's paradise with Bird Rock & Cader Idris just a few minutes drive away! Snowdon is only 60 minutes by car and the beautiful Coed Y Brenin Wood, with miles of mountain bike & walking tracks is just 30 minutes drive.

Don't worry if you're not the active type, the flat & effortless Mawddach Trail, featured in Julia Bradbury's 'Great Railway Walks' program is accessible to everyone and takes you on a journey along one of the UK's most spectacular estuaries, brimming with wildlife.

There are miles of beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches in Tywyn, Barmouth and Aberdovey to laze upon, as well as many local attractions such as on the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, which steams from Tywyn up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls. Just a few miles around the stunning Talyllyn Lake is the world renowned 'Centre For Alternative Technology' or (CAT) which is a fascinating place to visit and learn. Close to CAT is The Corris Craft Centre and King Arthurs Labyrinth, another 'must visit' place.

Tywyn

Just a few minutes walk is the rocky beach at Llyngwiril on the sunny West facing Cambrian Bay and 15 Minutes away at Tywyn there are miles of sandy beaches. Don't miss the spectacular sunsets over the bay. From early Spring through till Autumn, dolphins and porpoise can be spotted close to the shore, an amazing sight to see! Its not unusual to see them on a daily basis in pods of up to 20. Tywyn is possibly the only place on the West Coast where you can park for FREE virtually right on the beach. There is level access to the town where there are supermarkets, shops, cafes, banks, a post office, cinema, health centre, cottage hospital, several churches, leisure centre and an indoor swimming pool. Just a further 5 minutes drive is the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey, with the famous Aberdovey Golf Course plus several good restaurants & pubs.

For watersport enthusiasts and visitors with families, uncrowded, sweeping, sandy beaches can be found in Barmouth to the north or Tywyn or Aberdovey to the south just a few minutes' drive from the house. Depending on the conditions, Tywyn is a focal point for surfers & kayakers. Aberdovey is a well known wind surfing & sailing centre. Jet skiers are welcome in both resorts. Fishing trips can be arranged in Barmouth Tywyn & Aberdovey all year round.

This area is full of history dating back to pre-historic times. Just get slightly off the beaten track on the dozens of public footpaths and you will come across standing stones, stone circles, abandoned farmhouses, castles & ancient churches.

Places within a just few miles of the cottage NOT TO MISS:

Aberdovey, lovely old fishing village, GOLF & SAILING haven, with many good restaurants, pubs & coffee shops.

St Cadvans Church in Tywyn dating back 1500 years with the Cadvan Stones, which are apparently the oldest known inscriptions of the Welsh language.

Dolgoch Falls, spectacular waterfalls and woodland walk, look out for fairies and witches!

Cregennan Lake near Arthog, stunning location, with views of the Mawddach Estuary.

The Barmouth Bridge, build by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the Mawddach, then explore Barmouth, with excellent beaches and the harbour. There are good shops, numerous coffee shops & pubs. The Last Inn & Davey Jones Locker are particularly good.

Cader Idris, Bird Rock & Llyn Cau, most walkers agree is more scenic than Snowdon.

The Bearded Lake above Aberdovey. Mystical place of legends, with amazing views of the Dovey Estuary.

The Dysynni River & reed beds. Just a short walk from the cottage. A wild life haven for geese, ducks and herons. Fishing with a permit.

Bird Rock. A 15 min walk away. 500 years ago the sea came up to the rock, but the Cormorant still breed here. Also, look out for the ruined Iron Age fort near the top of the rock.

Tal-y-llyn Lake, just beautiful!
