** Limited dates still available for 2017!! **

** New for 2017 - Kayak Hire!! **

This property has been freshly decorated for the 2017 season. Lounge with open fire place and bay window, dining room overlooking the garden, bathroom, modern recently fitted kitchen, master bedroom with king size bed, second bedroom with full size bunk beds. Front and rear gardens, patio area with good views, with outside dining furniture and gas barbecue. Private hot tub (seats 5), with lighting, massage jets and bubbles. There is also a hammock suspended from the large apple tree (you can help yourself to apples in season).

The rear garden is terraced on two levels, and care must be taken when approaching the edges of the terraces as only the patio area is completely enclosed by balustrading. Please refer to the included photos for more detail.

Croquet, boules, and garden badminton equipment is there for you to use in the garden, or on the beach.

An information pack will be there for your arrival. Outside of high season, we also provide a complimentary pack of coal for the open fire.

There are traditional family board games provided, a 1960's record player (and records!), lots of books, as well as free fast Wi-Fi, X-Box & games, family DVDs and TV.

Bryn Heulog is in the hamlet of Friog, right by an award winning beach, with the foothills of Cadair Idris and the famous 'Blue Lake' behind it.

The area has fantastic walking and cycling attractions, to suit all abilities and experience. Coed-y-Brenin Forest Park Mountain Bike Centre is close by, as is the family friendly Mawddach Trail, which can include a crossing of the famous Barmouth Bridge, or a stop at the George III by the toll bridge in Penmaenpool for a pub lunch.

You can walk from the front door to the hills behind which reach to the beautiful and dramatic Cregennen Lakes, and further on to Cadair Idris itself, passing lots of local waterfalls, Victorian Slate and Gold Mines, with amazing views over Cardigan Bay.

The beach is a few minutes walk away, and is always quiet. It is sandy, and gently sloping, and perfect for families. There is always lots of opportunity for kite flying, rock-pooling, fishing, kayaking, paddling, swimming, beachcombing, sandcastle making, crabbing, or just lying down in the sun with a good book.

The narrow gauge railway at Fairbourne is a very short walk away, and is one of the famous little trains of Wales. You can catch it to 'The Point' facing Barmouth, and then catch the connecting local ferry across the estuary to get to the Victorian Seaside town. From there you can book a boat for some sea fishing, visit the theatre, the fairground, or one of the many shops and restaurants.

New for 2017 - Kayak Hire!!

Fairbourne beach is great for kayaking. Whether pottering around in the shallow lagoons that form when the tide goes out, gently 'surfing' in on the waves, fishing, exploring the coastline, or when the wind is up, there's some more serious surfing available (only the single person kayaks are suitable on bigger waves). We have three kayaks for hire at Bryn Heulog:

An Ocean Kayak Frenzy 'sit-on' Kayak: 1 Adult. £50 per stay.

A Perception Scooter 'sit-on' Kayak: 1 Adult. £50 per stay.

An Ocean Kayak Malibu II 'sit-on' Kayak: 2 Adults + 1 small child / pet. £70 per stay.

All our Kayaks come with paddle, and comfort seat, as well as a trolley for wheeling them across the beach to the sea. There is also a selection of life jackets you can use. If your size isn't there, there are several local shops that supply them.

If you'd like to hire any combination of these kayaks, please let us know!

What makes this bungalow unique

There are very few properties that are so close to the beach and also the mountains, whilst at the same time being situated in a quiet friendly Hamlet, yet with all conveniences within a short distance.

The area is outstanding and the local village of Fairbourne is a really nice walk in the evening passed the toll house and the people we met were really friendly. We visited the Indiana Cuisine and the food was exceptional and Raj was a perfect host My wife usually has a problem as she is a vegetarian but not this time... visited the blue lake and views were worth the trek ...cottage was really cosy and just the break we needed

Great fun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit at the Bryn Heulog house, it had a lovely garden with a fab hot tub, in the house there was everything we needed for a pleasant stay, we only had a couple of days but enjoyed every minute of our time there.

We had a cozy coal fire, which was a great novelty for us, we would definitely stay here again.

A perfect base for our little getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Bryn Heulog. Couldn't of asked for more. Clean and well equipped for a short break. Notwithstanding the added bonus of a hot tub for those end of the day moments. Would highly recommend and we would stay again if we return to the area.
