(near Barmouth) - A two bedroom ground floor cottage, perfect for that traditional seaside holiday. One double bedroom and one twin combined with a large lounge and fully functional kitchen means Bwthyn is ideal for families looking for a quiet break by the sea.
Large floor to ceiling windows down one side means the lounge is nice and bright as well as being spacious. A comfortable sofa and armchairs face a romantic cast iron fire set in the original stone surround. At the other end of the room there’s a large dining table. Great if you’re better than us at persuading the family to sit down together at meal times.
A step up leads to an open plan kitchen. Smaller than the lounge but everything you need is there. Cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. Then two bedrooms, one double one twin. Both bedrooms are spacious and immaculately furnished. That perfect combination of quality period furniture combined with new and clean bedding and linen.
The bathroom has a modern white suite and shower. Here to, the original and exposed oak beams add character and a sense of luxury.
‘Bwthyn’ is located, in my opinion, in one of the nicest parts of the 840 square miles that makes up the Snowdonia National Park. You’re certainly in the heart of the park here. Glorious sandy beaches a stones throw to the west and un-spoilt mountain wilderness to the east. Travel north and you come to Harlech with it’s famous castle and the impressive Royal St Davids links golf course. Further north for Portmeirion, Betws y Coed and of course Snowdon itself. Barmouth and the magnificent Mawddach estuary winding its way past the foot of Cader Idris is a 5 minute drive to the south.
Lots of outdoorsy things to do in the area including the new Mecca of mountain biking, Coed Y Brenin. Definitely worth a trip, whether you’re a complete beginner or one of the world class racers that visit regularly. If you consider other pursuits like white water rafting, mountaineering, wakeboarding and coasteering there’s certainly plenty of opportunities for adrenalin junkies to get their fix. Personally, I prefer to stick to building sandcastles on the beach, but each to their own.

"This was our second visit to Bwythyn and we had another really enjoyable week. Lots of great walks, both inland and by the coast – and we acquired some bargains at Dyffryn Ardudwy village fete!"
"Another lovely week despite the lack of sunshine – cottage is very comfortable and welcoming and the addition of a dish washer in the kitchen was splendid not to mention the delicious bread and cakes. Sammy (now just tuned two years) really enjoyed paddling in the sea albeit in wellingtons and making sandcastles on the beaches – a perfect spot for small children we all enjoyed our week."

"We booked a week in the Bwthyn after our German friends stayed there and loved it a couple of years ago. We can now see why they enjoyed it so much – very homely feel in a great location. Ideal for a beach holiday with the kids. We don’t live that far away, but nonetheless it felt like a proper, and very relaxing holiday."
