I have been a regular visitor to this part of wales since I was a child and still love the area, I decided to buy a property in Fairbourne 3 years ago and spent the next 6 months renovating it to high standard. We still use the bungalow ourselves and you will find many personal touches and attention to detail.
Paul Winfer purchased this bungalow in 2011
We chose to buy in Fairbourne due to its peaceful location far enough away from the more comercialised areas of Barmouth but close enough to reach within a few minutes. The transport links are great with a train staion and bus stop in the village. We enjoy walking and cycling and the area has some spectacular walks on your doorstep including the blue lake and the dis-used railway line along the Mawdach estuary. You can walk or cycle across Barmouth bridge and Coed-y-Brenin mountain bike centre is a 30 minute drive away.
Fairbourne has a beautiful long sandy beach, the village is well away from the main road and the activities available make it the perfect place to take children.
The bungalow is in a very quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance of the beach, train station, shops, pub, indian restaurant, golf course, amusement arcade, and the Fairbourne minature steam railway. Perfect for families or for couples looking for peace and quiet.
By the end of our stay, it felt like our own home. Each room is spacious enough to have never felt crowded. The temperature was easy to maintain at our comfort level. Even in the winter, the exterior sun room was quickly warmed, and it was a joy to eat our meals in there. I never heard any of our neighbors from inside the house, so it was a great place for reading as well.
The local town was always so calm and easy going. There were enough small market shops in walking distance that we had no need of a car unless we wanted to explore beyond our town. The train stop was close and easy to plan routes along the Cambrian Line for a good price.
This location was also a great launching point for several excursions into Snowdonia national park. It was very easy for us to see castles, go hiking, biking, or kayaking, in a variety of beautiful locations close by.
Although Aberystwyth was easy to get to, and we went often, I would especially recommend this home to anyone who prefers to avoid larger cities.
Finally, the hosts were very kind and easy to communicate with.
We were visiting parents in Fairbourne for the week. Very pleased with accommodation spotlessly clean. Equipped to high standard as described. No hidden extras i.e. Meters to feed. So was warm when weather was chilly. Washing machine and tumble drier useful too, as we had young granddaughter staying with us. No complaints at all. we used the local new pub for eating out which was very good value (not the Springfield) . Would recommend to friends.
Pity about negative publicity regarding flood plain and lack of funding for the area for the future.
This is a very nice bungalow which is finished to a good standard. The property looks a little basic from the front, but is modern, warm and spacious on the inside. We particularly liked the conservatory dining area and loved having breakfast in there (it was fine with the heater on). The beach is a short stroll away and a great walk when the tide is out. We were lucky with the weather (Oct.) and would definitely stay here again.
There were only two issues during our stay. The bathroom sink plug mechanism was broken (which was a bit frustrating) and you had to put your hand underneath to operate it and let the water out. The second issue was that the owner of the property behind this one had three dogs, and there wasn't much of a fence between the two gardens.....so be aware of this if you're taking a dog with you!
bungalow was lovely and the garden and was close to the beach and a lovely little steam train
The bungalow is in a nice part of fairbourne, close to the shops, bar, beach and the local. The bungalow is very well looked after and clean.
I would recommend and would like to return for more holiday's here.
Ten out of ten
Perfect base for a week in Fairbourne. The bungalow had everything we needed and more - loads of room for the five of us, and a lovely private garden, much enjoyed in the sunshine. So pleased we opted to hire the kayak and bikes as well - thoughtfully provided with all the necessities - Fairbourne is the perfect location for both.
No need for a car here. The bungalow is 5 minutes from the beach and just a few minutes walk from the train station - direct trains from Birmingham, and great for day trips along the coast (Harlech, Talyllyn railway). Lovely walks up into the hills or across the footbridge to Barmouth.
