** 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.

Fab fab fab well worth a visit!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is such a great find. The bed is comfy, the garden is a delight and the hot tub is lush! We visited the nearby but uphill Blue Lake well worth the visit and nearby Fairbourne is lovely, so close to sea front and the ferry to Barmouth is an experience . The station is only a few mins walk away for days out by train. Would highly recommend this property can't wait to return.

Unpleasantly cold

  • 1 of 5

Whole of bungalow was very cold. I was in the small bunk room and was just about warm enough with clothes, both thin duvets and both throws...a very uncomfortable night with little sleep. The one portable radiator just about kept the edge off the kitchen. Having a coal fire on night two made the place warmer but still cold in the night. Maybe more portable radiators?...the storage heaters do not really cut it.

Owner's Response: Hi Hazel, Many thanks for taking the time to send us your feedback. We're so sorry you found the cottage too cold. We do wish you'd let us know whilst you were there though, as we absolutely could have helped! The cleaning team found that all of the heaters had been turned to their lowest setting after your visit, and we could have easily advised how to adjust them to make it warmer! We really want our guests to be as comfortable as possible whilst on holiday, which is why we supply complimentary coal, extra blankets, spare duvets, and also a portable heater. These are purely supplemental though, as the central heating makes the cottage really, really toasty when it is turned up. Thanks again, we'd love to have you stay with us again at some point :-) best wishes, Mark & Eloise

Wonderful property, everything you need for the perfect break in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great stay in this lovely property that felt like home from home as soon as we walked in. Inside was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed and more. The garden has amazing views and the added treat of the hot tub! The location is pefect with so may places to go that appealed to all of us. The beach is a few minutes away and local village and train station in walking distance. We will definitely be booking again for a longer stay!
