Description from owner
3 Mawddach Crescent is a former Victorian Gentleman's residence on the shores of the picturesque Mawddach Estuary in Snowdonia. It's a spacious luxury self-catering family home in a stunning location, providing outstanding views and sumptuous accommodation. Whether it is a dinner party, large family reunion, seaside holiday, a weekend in the country or to simply escape from the city, this is the perfect venue.
The area is a Mecca for lovers of the great outdoors, with superb hill walking, canoeing, kayaking and cycling all from the doorstep. Pony rides on the beach, sea, lake and estuary fishing, local golf courses, as well as railway trips to historic sites such as Harlech castle are just some of the many things to do. Food lovers will also enjoy the many restaurants and local produce of the surrounding areas. Family bookings only please.
The Gwynedd region
The Mawddach Estuary is located on the west coast of Wales between the town of Barmouth to the north and Fairbourne to the south. The great beauty of the Mawddach estuary is well documented. The famous Victorian John Ruskin said that there is "no better walk than from Barmouth through to Dolgellau other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth". The views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary are phenomenal.
Walkers, cyclists and nature lovers appreciate the Mawddach estuary and indeed the southern bank of the Mawddach estuary, along which used to run a section of the GWR branch line from Ruabon to Barmouth, has now been designated the Mawddach Trail, an 8 mile path running from Dolgellau to Morfa Mawddach, at the southern side of the Barmouth railway bridge. It is managed by the Snowdonia National Park Authority as a leisure route for walkers and cyclists, and is part of the Sustrans Cross-Wales Cycling Route.
The area is a Mecca for lovers of the great outdoors, with superb hill walking, canoeing, kayaking and cycling all from the doorstep. Pony rides on the beach, sea, lake and estuary fishing (Sea Bass, Plaice, Salmon, Sea trout), local golf courses, as well as railway trips to historic sites such as Harlech castle are just some of the many things to do. Food lovers will also enjoy the many restaurants and local produce of the surrounding areas. The area is simply stunning.

We booked No 3 Mawddach for a family weekend with 18 of us with ages from 7 - 80, it was perfect, plenty of room inside and out for all to enjoy. The children enjoyed crabbing (supervised) and wandering freely on the hill at the back following the sheep and lambs around. The adults had plenty of room to talk, weather/water watch, read, and generally relax. There is also good wifi. The kitchen area is probably the best I have seen (including my own!) and has absolutely EVERYTHING you could want and more and it is all top quality, there are 2 dishwashers, a huge fridge/freezer and the hit of the weekend for the children.... an automatic ice dispenser! My only slight niggle was no microwave, but that is only because I use one to reheat my half finished coffee, no-one else missed it! The bedrooms are all big, with big comfy beds, feather duvets with lovely white linen and towels and we didn't even notice that they weren't en-suite, in fact the rooms would be spoilt by trying to add them. Bethany and Mark provide family games, fishing rods, dvds, 2 large screen tvs and lots of information as well making you feel that nothing is too much trouble. All in all I could not recommend No 3 too highly and we are hoping to return soon.
“Fantastic situation, fantastic, comfortable and spacious house.”
Our extended family of 13 all loved our stay at this property. Amazing views, lovely walks, peaceful situation and a perfect house for a large group. Very comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen has almost every conceivable item of equipment. Lovely small enclosed garden with plenty of seating for eating outside. The owners have refurbished the property to a very high but informal standard making it very suitable for mixed age group.....in particular the large dining room (bigger than it appears in photo) became a multifunction room for playing games and drawing etc for the children. Just perfect. Lots of things to do locally and in the wider area. Barmouth is a lovely old fashioned seaside town about half hour walk away, Fairborne somewhat nearer. It takes around 25 minutes to drive to Barmouth because of the estuary. The owners are very helpful and pleasant to deal with....could go on but in summary we just loved it!
“Fantastic time in a fantastic house”
3 Mawddach is a super house! We hired it for our whole family as it was parents 50th wedding anniversary on the Friday & Dads 70th on the Sunday. The location & views are spectacular with lots to do. You do need a car but can easily take the 20 minute walk to Barmouth. The house is spectacular. The dining room with the grand table was the perfect place for the dinner party. The kids were entertained with the garden and table tennis. Plenty of room to interact plenty of space to have peace & quiet. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed linen (Egyptian cotton) lovely. The house is simply designed with practical features that mean wading in and out and having a dog means your not damaging anything and easy to clean yet it has a lovely warmth to it. We will definitely go back at some point!
“Stunning house in a spectacular location!”
The property is outstanding. We were a group of 17 made up of four families (children ranging from 3 - 10 years old). The kitchen was equipped to a high standard (even the knives were sharp which is a rare thing in a holiday rental), there are plenty of bathrooms (very important with such a large number of people) and all the bedrooms were lovely (very comfy beds). It was great to all be able to sit and eat comfortably together in the dining room around the huge table. The location is spectuacular - the views from the house are amazing. We enjoyed bike rides from the doorstep along the Mawddach trail and across the bridge to Barmouth and walks on the beach. We stayed for a week but could easily have filled two. For that reason (and the fact the house is so nice) we have already booked another week next year! Bethany and Mark could not have done more to make us feel welcome and looked after (even travelling 3+ hours from Yorkshire on a dark and snowy night to fix a leak!).
“Ideal family accommodation with spectacular views”
Very friendly and helpful owners who have furnished the house to a straightforward but high standard with all the facilities necessary. Very comfortable beds and plenty of sitting areas either for eating or relaxing. There is a garden with BBQ and large table. The house overlooks the estuary where you can swim fish or boat but beware the tides! Barmouth is a 15 minute walk or shorter bike ride away over the railway bridge where you can find pubs, restaurants, shops and takeaways. There are other pubs and restaurants nearby. Barmouth also has a boat dock where you can take fishing or sightseeing trips, as well as a very fine beach. Altogether you couldn't beat this as an excellent venue for a family holiday.
Great experience with the owner from start to finish. The home has recently been renovated and is comfortable and spacious with very good beds, great showers, plenty of hot water, large kitchen able to deal with bigger groups. There were 14 of us and we were all able to sit down with space to spare at the dining table. Internet and phone is provided if you need it. A recently added pergola in the back garden gave welcome shade when seated at the long table outside. Barmouth is a 30 minute brisk walk away, across a pedestrian/bike wooden railway bridge, offering panoramic views of the beautiful Mawddach Estuary. Half way there is a grassy area we used to play a little football, fly kites and go fishing in the small (but tidal) stream. Barmouth was a bustling town perched above a large beach. Most of our time was spent at the house or in the immediate area, swimming in the estuary at low tide, playing on the sandbanks once we had swum across the channel. Fishing off the wall one member of our group caught a 3lb sea bass. Collecting mussels on the bottom of the channel. Savoring the ever changing view of the estuary. Eating, talking, playing games, reading, photography and just relaxing. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes the comforts of home, on the doorstep of a great outdoor adventure. Our group had small children, teenagers and adults. We were all able to enjoy ourselves. Our stay was blessed with fine weather for most of the week. We had plenty of space inside to play, talk and eat when we couldn't get outside. For a large family holiday we couldn't have done better then 3 Mawddach.
“Fantastic house, location, views and walks!”
Newly refurbished, well equipped kitchen and good furniture. The house was lovely and warm and so was the welcome!
