Bryn Hyfryd is a lovely property in a spectacular location. The self-catering cottage sleeps up to six people in three bedrooms, giving guests access to the Mawddach Trail that stretches between Barmouth and Dolgellau. It's perfect for active families who want to be in reach of footpaths, mountain bike trails and beaches, all against the beautiful backdrop of Cader Idris and within walking distance of the George III pub.
You'll definitely want a bike when you stay at Bryn Hyfryd, but you don't need to bring your own as there are excellent local businesses where you can hire a bike, book a guided tour or even book a coaching session to improve your skills and confidence. Coed-y-Brenin has something for the whole family from purpose-built mountain bike trails to a cafe and an adventure play area.
If walking is more your pace, then there are miles of footpaths that wind their way up hills, around the coast and through the unforgettable landscape of the Snowdonia National Park. In addition to the Mawddach Trail, which passes the house at the bottom of the garden, there are walks to every taste including around picturesque Cregennan Lakes. Other ways to be active and have fun include stand-up paddleboarding (hire equipment in Barmouth) or swimming or surfing at beaches like Harlech, Tal y Bont, Aberdovey and Fairbourne, to name a few. There are also golf courses and pony trekking.
Dolgellau is a short drive or an easy bike ride from the cottage, with an excellent choice of places to eat and drink as well as a variety of independent shops and a regular market every Thursday. Barmouth has a range of traditional seaside attractions, and you can't miss seeing Harlech Castle, which is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Bryn Hyfryd's beautiful location and high standard of accommodation make it ideal for a holiday in any season. There are fantastic sights, breathtaking beauty spots, fascinating historical buildings and friendly towns and villages where you will find everything you need for a relaxed and enjoyable self-catering holiday.

Bryn Hyfryd is a modern bungalow with an open-plan layout that suits modern families, and accommodation all on one level. Highlights include:
Outside: You'll want to spend as much time as possible on the front deck, which spans the entire width of the house and has fantastic views. There is loads of space outside the front and in the rear of the house, with extensive areas of lawn, a few apple trees and a herb garden to which guests are welcome to help themselves. The off-street parking is big enough for two to three cars.
Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, sheets and bath towels are all included, as is an initial basket of fuel for the log burner. The kitchen is stocked with essentials like dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid. One well-behaved dog is welcome with prior agreement from the owner. Smoking is not permitted. Booster seat and travel cot with mattress provided (guests to bring bedding for the cot). It is possible to access the cottage by public transport for guests who don't have a car. A bus goes through Penmaenpool and stops at George III which is a few minutes walk away from the cottage - this links with the train at Morfa Mawddach.
