About Plas Mynach

Enjoying a spectacular position overlooking the sea, this magnificent Grade II listed holiday home sits in one of the most desirable coastal towns in Wales within the Snowdonia National Park. Ideally placed on the outskirts of the popular seaside town of Barmouth, Plas Mynach is just a mile from the heart of the town and ten minutes walk from the glorious sandy Blue Flag beach, shops and the train station, making it accessible by car and public transport.

The property is steeped in history and has an interesting past, being formerly owned by the Perrins (makers of Lea & Perrins sauce!) who enjoyed their family holidays at Plas Mynach. Whilst its first impression is one of grandeur, Plas Mynach is immediately welcoming with relaxed accommodation that ensures a comfortable stay. Rooms are spacious and well equipped with everything needed to relax and unwind, complemented by glorious sea and mountain views that are sure to impress. Sitting in wooded grounds, Plas Mynach offers guests complete privacy and the opportunity to escape away with friends or family.

With six bedrooms (one on the ground floor), a large dining kitchen, spacious double reception room for relaxing and formal dining (complemented by sea views!), space to relax outside during the warmer months and pubs, shops and a beach within walking distance, you and your party are sure to talk about your holiday at Plas Mynach in Barmouth for many years to come.

Sitting at the head of the Mawddach Estuary, Barmouth looks out onto Cardigan Bay providing stunning views. Small but perfectly formed, this pretty Welsh seaside town has a glorious sandy beach, pretty harbour and good choice of pubs and restaurants for meals out. There are lots of events and festivals taking place throughout the summer months adding to the atmosphere, as well as plenty to keep outdoor enthusiasts occupied with wonderful coastal walks, excellent opportunities for mountain bikers, golf, fishing, horse riding and white water fun for those seeking adrenaline activities.

Nestling at the heart of Snowdonia's magnificent National Park, there are plenty of attractions for day trips out. Head further round the coast and visit the castles at Caernarfon and the World Heritage Site of Harlech; the Italianate coastal village of Portmierion; and Porthmadog where you can take a ride on the Ffestiniog steam railway and visit the Glaslyn RSPB Reserve to see the Osprey. Alternatively, head inland and explore Blaenau Ffestiniog, home to Bounce Below (a great wet weather attraction) and Zip World or tackle Snowdon.

Whether you are getting together with friends, want a large family holiday or celebrating a special occasion, Plas Mynach is an excellent choice with an abundance of attractions close by for day trips out and a glorious coastal setting for relaxing - the perfect choice for a break away.
