Outside is an enclosed courtyard which has a picnic table and parasol, bbq, covered drying area and place for bikes to be stored securely. A cot can also be provided for a small charge if necessary.
Dogs are also welcome, if well behaved and owners bring their own bedding with them.
The village benefits from a train station on the Cambrian Coast line, and a bus service. It is possible to get on the train in Birmingham and get off in Llwyngwril. The line also gives access to Machynlleth, Aberdyfi, Aberystwyth, Porthmadog, Harlech, Pwllheli, Portmeirion. The buses can take you to Dolgellau.
There is a beach which is interesting, with rocks and rockpools, the river Gwril flows through the village into the sea, as does the Mill Race, a man-made leat, diverted from the river, which served the various mills in the village years ago.
There is also a pub in the village which serves typical pub food, and has a weekly quiz night on a Tuesday night from 9pm.
The area has a wide range of activities and attractions available and also some excellent restaurants for delicious meals out, using locally produced foods.
Location description from owner
The North Wales region
South Snowdonia is one of the most beautiful areas, with mountains river valleys and coastline. The nearest mountain range is Cader Idris, which is the second highest mountain in Wales. Guests also often go to climb Snowdon, from the property, which is easily achievable in a day out. There are abundant routes for walking to suite all capabilities, and we benefit from being on the Wales Coastal Path. The coastline is served by the Cambrian Coast Railway, which makes getting around the area, simple, and stress free, if you plan your journeys, if driving is part of your day to day life, you will have the opportunity to forget about the car for all or part of your stay. It is also a wonderful way to see the coastline, from the train.
The nature of the region lends itself well to activities, and everything from horse-riding, to white water rafting/canoeing to cycling/mountain biking, and rock climbing is possible here, among others. We have a lot of narrow gauge steam railways: Talyllyn, Fairbourne, Corris, Ffestiniog, Bala, which are very popular with all ages and each one having its own events throughout the year.
There are a number of active attractions also: Bounce Below, Zip World, Surf Snowdonia.
There are also good Golf Clubs at Fairbourne (18 holes), and Aberdyfi (9 holes).
There are plenty of locally produced foods, which are available in a number of outlets, farmers markets, and restaurants.
Also the area is rich with Art, as the beauty of the area attracts and inspires artists. There are groups of artists who market themselves together as well as as individuals. one such group is CRYD, who exhibit regularly locally. There are a number of Galleries where their work can be seen and purchased, including in these holiday homes, where work is displayed on the walls, and is for sale, should you like it, or you can visit the artists, as contact details are available too.
This area enjoys a micro-climate as the Gulf Steam protects us from harsher weather which may be experienced inland. The coast also has less rainfall than inland.
Llwyngwril is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area, and also provides a peaceful hideaway from a busy life. Our beaches are not heaving with people, even in the height of the season, and you will not get caught in traffic.
The village has a pub and a village shop, which .
The beach has shingle and if visits and walks to it are planned for low tide, you will find it interesting with lots of rock pools, and expanses of sand. It is common for people to have bonfires on the beach and to watch one of our spectacular sunsets, over a bottle of wine, and food cooked on the fire, or a picnic!
Other lovely beaches in the area are Fairbourne, and Aberdyfi, . and there is one at Tywyn, which at low tide has the ancient forest, which has been uncovered by the storms of early 2014.
There are many standing stones and ley lines which are interesting and also evidence of bronze age and iron age settlements. Llwyngwril has the site of an iron age hill fort, which is protected by Cadw.
There are some beautiful old Churches which are well worth visiting. Llangelynnin, just outside the village is 12th Century with medieval wall paintings and the grave of the Gypsy king. Also in Llanegryn, just about 5 miles away is the church of St Egryn, which has the most beautifully carved rood screen, said to have been carried over the mountains by monks, after the dissolution of the monasteries, from Cymer Abbey, which can be visited just outside Dolgellau.
The Blue Lake is just at Friog (next village up the coast) which is a lovely place for a swim/picnic. It is a disused slate quarry and is full of water.
YOu can walk/cycle across Barmouth Bridge to Barmouth and some of the stunning walks on that side of the estuary, offering views of the mountain range on this side of the Estuary. It is now possible to walk from Fairbourne, just near the Golf Club, along the new flood defences which are dykes recently constructed and improved. This leads to Morfa Mawddach, which is where you can pick up the bridge, and whilst it is good to go by train, it is also a lovely walk along the walkway/cycle path parallel with the railway line.. Morfa Mawddach is also the start of the Mawddach trail, which runs to Dolgellau, along the now defunct railway line. So it is a safe route to cycle from Dolgellau, to Barmouth, Cycle hire is available in a number of places, but you can also bring your own bikes. We have facilities for safe over night storage for you.

- Very Good
We stayed in Myfanwy over New Year, having been 'upgraded' thanks to a non-functioning shower in the property we'd originally booked. In future, we'd book Myfanwy directly without a shadow of a doubt.. The property is newly renovated, beautiful, and very comfortable and well-equipped. I particularly enjoyed the under-floor heating and whirlpool bath! My teenagers liked the free wifi. The owner, Debbie, can't do enough to help and is friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. She moved us quickly and without fuss when it became clear that there was a problem with the shower in our previous accommodation, and no hope - over Bank Holidays etc. - of getting it fixed. We would like to come back in Spring or Summer to do a bit more walking in the area.
Thank you, Claire, for your kind review. It is always gratifying to know that our visitors have enjoyed our hospitality and that they are attracted back to this beautiful area. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
“Comfortable & spacious, with lots for the children to do”
Really comfortable, spacious accommodation. The children loved all the games, books and DVDs. Would definitely come here again.
Thrilled that you liked our property and also that the children liked it too. I feel that it is important to provide things for children and so that they have plenty to occupy them and then Mums and Dads can relax. I am very fond of children and so understand their needs and enjoy providing for them. We have a beautiful area, with so much to see and do here, so hope that you will come back to explore further.
