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. Distant Sea Views from the hot tub!

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.

Updates for 2017:

Whole house freshly decorated.

New Central Heating System Installed.

New Garden Furniture.

Wi-Fi ultra fast broadband upgraded.

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.

Fantastic second visit

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit and it was just as brilliant as our first. Feels like home as soon as you open the front door. In a great spot for Fairbourne and Barmouth and lots of places to see in a 30 mile radius if you like to travel.

We will be back next year!!!!

Great place and area, wish we booked longer!

  • 5 of 5

Visited this week for a break after getting married and wanting to wind down and couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to stay! Loved that the area was so peaceful and everything such a short walk away. Had everything you needed in the cottage with handy instructions to hand if needed. We certainly enjoyed the complimentary prosecco in the hot tub then relaxing to some music on the record player. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer, we will certainly hope to return in the future - thank you!!

An Absolutely wonderful cottage! Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in mark and Eloise cottage. Everything you could need was here. The rooms are lovely and very spacious. As a dog friendly cottage it is perfect and many beautiful and long walks nearby. We were lucky to have some nice weather and sat out on patio after relaxing in jacuzzi and enjoyed the peace and quite. The old retro record player with 'good old vinyls' was lovely with many to choose from. A lovely welcome bottle of bubbly from mark & Eloise went down a treat. Great pub/restaurant 10 mins walk also local shop that has everything you could wish for! Definitely recommend .

Fabulous accommodation which was totally relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay, photos on website do not do it justice. Spacious and comfortable with lovely decor throughout. Kids were introduced to vinyl and the Xbox was enjoyed on the one rainy day we had. Plenty of fun in the hot tub which was great after a short walk to the blue lake and a swim. Kids room was spacious and comfy with lovely touches. So much within walking distance, lovely beach. The accommodation really provided a relaxed base for us all and the swing and garden provided a great space and views in the evening.
