Cottage in Llwyngwril, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales - Peaceful Village Location With Excellent Access To Mountains And Coast

Bryn Arfor is in a row of 5 individual character cottages on a quiet lane, close to the centre of Llwyngwril village.

fantastic place for a get away from it all break

  • 5 of 5

Really can't understand why Bryn Arfur is only rated as 4 star, as far as we were concerned it's definately 5 star accomodation.

We were a party of 5 adults and we were all bowled over by the cottage, on our arrival we found it to be scrupulously clean, exceptionally well equipped in every aspect, from the modern kitchen to the bedrooms, everything is provided, with ample bed linen, towels, logs for the wood burner,hiking equippment and much more too

And then we come to the cottages garden , this meanders up the hillside adjacent to the cottage and is itself really well equipped with a pinic table and benchs, several deck chairs, a quiet seating area overlooking the bay, theres a summer house as well and even a small bbq, again scrupulously clean

As for location, it really couldn't be better placed, Barmouth, Tywyn and Aber dovey all easily reached by road or rail.

In short a fantastic little cottage with lots to offer, familys, couples and singles alike, we'll definitely be booking it again in the near future

Beautiful cottage. Great attention to detail. Had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, tranquil and cosy. Very clean and had everything we required for a self catering holiday. Location beautiful but not a lot to do for couples. Would be ideal for a family with Fairbourne Railway. If you like walking as we do, the walk to Barmouth was lovely.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. It has spectacular views from the summer house in the garden where we watched the sun setting enjoying a glass of wine.

It is really well kitted out and has everything you could possibly need.

We were there four nights and visited Barmouth, Tywyn, Aberdovey, Fairbourne and took a drive to Aberystwyth on a very wet day.

There are plenty of walks and beaches nearby. We enjoyed a walk down to the beach through the village. The Blue lake near Fairbourne is another lovely walk with stunning views over Barmouth from the top. The Talyllyn railway near Tywyn was fun with a stop at the Dolgoch falls which were spectacular especially as it had rained the day before.

We would totally recommend this cottage for a holiday.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage that is well equipped and cosy. We found there to be plenty of room and everything we could need for our stay including the logs for the wood burner. The village is well placed for exploring the surrounding area, we made use of the train which runs along the coast even out of season there is a regular service and great views over the wooden bridge to Barmouth. We only had a short break for 3 nights and could not do half of what is on offer. The

cottage is well stocked with maps and information for walkers , we had 2 teenage children with us so walking was not high on our agenda but you can do walks from the house and also walking down to the beach is easy too.

The owners were good at communicating with us before the stay and made everything easy. Would highly recommend the cottage for people of all ages

Wonderful Place to Rest in North Wales

  • 5 of 5

We have spend a wonderful week in this excellent, spacious home from home and enjoyed it very much. The cottage has lots of space and is very good equipped, including a huge collection of DVDs and books. The garden is really nice as well with great views on sun downing, although it is not directly by the house but some meters to go up the street. Everything was clean and comfortable. We recommend this house very much!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. The garden is at the end of the row of 4 cottages, about 15 meters from the cottage door up the quiet lane, the views from the garden are lovely and the sunsets are stunning.

Great cottage in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the cottage and we had a great stay.

The cottage is well kept and clean with everything you need for your stay. The summer house and garden overlooking the village and out to sea was a perfect spot for a glass of wine in the evening.

The village has everything you need from a good pub that serves food, a railway station and a well stocked shop. It also has some good walks from the cottage, either on the Welsh coastal path (which goes past the front door) or down along the beach.

Overall it is a highly recommended and we will stay there again when we visit that part of Wales.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you had a good stay and enjoyed the summer house and garden. You can follow the coast path north across the Barmouth bridge, the views over the Mawddach Estuary are amazing, or south down to Aberdovey. You are able to pick up a train from both places back to the cottage.
