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.

The rear garden is enclosed and terraced on two levels, and care must be taken when approaching the edges of the terraces. Distant Sea Views from the hot tub!

The cottage is in a designated 'Dark Skies' reserve, and the quantity and brightness of stars that can be seen whilst relaxing in the hot tub is amazing.

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

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.

About Eloise

Our family has been close to this area for over 50 years - and very little has changed in all that time. It's where our best memories are of growing up by the seaside, exploring the hills and estuary, and playing on the long, safe and sandy beach.

Eloise purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Eloise chose Fairbourne

When it comes to this area, there are two types of people: those that have never been and have never heard of the area, and those that have been going there all their lives! Once discovered, you're certain to return :-)

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.

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bryn Heulog. Not only is the cottage great (very comfortable, well equipped and fantastic hot tub!) but the local area is beautiful, and we spent lots of time exploring. Particular highlights were walking at the Cregannon Lakes and dinner at Coes Faen in Barmouth. Thank you!

WHERE WAS THE CONDIMENTS!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Had a cracking stay......very comfortable with everything you need.Nice open fire which warmed us up after running out of the hot tub at night.Great position and we really enjoyed ourselves but the bungalow not having any pepper was a major drawback,we found a small amount of salt in the picnic basket after a very long search which helped but the damage had already been done.We went out and brought our own pepper,we used a fair bit of it and then held a vote as to wether we leave it at the property or bring it home. We decided that the next visitors would endure the same hell as us and we brought it home.You have been warned!! We will be back.
