Location description from manager

The North Wales region

In The Snowdonia National Park, the village of Llwyngwril, 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.

Llwyngwril

Just a few minutes' walk is the rocky beach at Llwyngwril, 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. Zipworld, Bounce Below & Surf Snowdonia are only about an hour away,

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 Maes Gwynedd NOT TO MISS:

The Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, the world's 1st preserved railway.

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 !

“Mr”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2016

I was a bit apprehensive about staying in October for a boys weekend, but the weather didn't make any difference. We had both rain and sun and just got on with it. The house was a delight, to me better than the descriptions, there is soooo much space, all tastefully done. We didn't want for anything. I'm a towny and thought I would be bored with nothing to do, expecting to curl up with a book and wile away an evening but how wrong I was. There was no time, we walked, golfed, sea fished and visited the quaint and idealic local towns. Oh and the local pub, a 2 minute walk away! Best: house: sunset views from the front facing bedrooms, 4 I think, just spectacular, don't last long enough. Location: Walking to Barmouth. Worst: Tough, House: They haven't thought of everything, there's nothing to read in the downstairs toilet! But then again, there wasn't time! Location: It looks like the costal trains only runs every 2 hours, not sure if it's different in the summer.

“Really lovely house in fab location!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2016

We are a group of friends who stayed for a weekend in the house in June. It is SUCH a lovely place - really comfortable lounges, well-stocked kitchen, lovely comfy bedrooms and very hot showers! There were 11 of us and plenty of room, also with enough off-road parking to fit three or four cars. The house has been renovated to a very high standard but also retains its character and feel, with high ceilings and wooden features throughout. A really cracking, comfortable place to stay! The location is also brilliant - 30 seconds to the beach and also within easy striking distance of Snowdon and other mountains. We ordered an Indian takeaway from the restaurant recommended by the owners in the information book, and it didn't disappoint! All in all, we had a fantastic weekend in this lovely house, and I would warmly recommend it.
