About the property

Panoramic Views of Mountains and Sea, 10 Minutes from Sandy Beach. 4 bed. 2 en suite

Bryntirion was recently refurbished at the end of 2011 due to a flood. The house has a nice size lounge and a seperate kitchen-diner both with huge panoramic windows to take full advantage of the sea views and the glorious mountains of Snowdonia. There are 4 bedrooms - 2 with en-suites, the master bedroom and the downstairs bedroom. There is also a family bathroom and a downstairs wc. Accessible from one of the bedrooms is a veranda, another hot spot for enjoying the mesmerising views.

Bryntirion has all the modern amenities one expects including comfortable memory foam mattresses throughout and King size Double beds. There are three powerful showers and one full size bath. Each double bedroom has an LED TV over the bed with a memory stick with a variety of recent films. A games console and surround sound system is situated in the lounge along with a full book case.

The kitchen is equipped with an induction hob, dual oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The laundry room has a washing machine, tumble drier and extra fridge.

Bryntirion is nestled within a third of an acre of mature peaceful gardens that are abundant with visiting wild birds. Whilst enjoying the gardens the gentle sound of the Arthog falls can be heard. The Falls are just a 3 minute walk , which are definitely worth a look.

The Arthog side of the estuary is the more peaceful side with Barmouth easily accessed by walking part of the Mawdach trail across the picturesque Barmouth bridge.

Fabulous home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, and extremely well equipped everything has been thought of. The garden is lovely and we spent hours watching the wildlife. The views from the house are amazing. A great place to stay within easy drives of lots of interesting places. 3 generations of our family stayed and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Hopefully we can visit again, Thank you.

Stunning spacious property with stunning views, a great base for exploring

  • 5 of 5

Bryntirion is a stunning property, very clean and lovely decour. All the rooms are spacious and bright. Great views from the house over the estuary, enjoyed watching the birds especially the Woodpecker. Everything we needed was at hand, there is a well stocked larder along with utility room. The living room has a nice seating layout, just right to relax or watch a movie with a very nice sound system. The kitchen has a large table, great for us men to have a good old fry up before our exploring. It was great to have en-suite with mine looking out over the countryside(now that's a shower)

Ample parking space for our van and a car. Myself and 3 friends stayed here whilst we enjoyed the many mountain bike trails, and also the local area. Make sure you take a left out of the gate and see the waterfalls and lakes. I don't think you would find a better presented property that has everything you need plus a Woodpecker. 10/10 superb

Lovely well equipped house with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

The best equipped house we have ever stayed in, loved the larder it was very useful to be able to use some of the foodstuff and then to replace it. The views across the estuary are wonderful. The youngsters enjoyed going up the hill behind the house to explore and discovered the waterfall and then we all enjoyed the walk up to the top. There were 7 of us, 3 generations and it worked for us all, would highly recommend Bryn.

excellent location , wonderfull views

  • 5 of 5

the house is well located, with stunning views. turn left out of the gate and through wooded areas with waterfalls up onto open moorland and lakes, or turn right at the gate and go down the hill, cross over the road and join a cycle path, left to Barmouth via a long estuary railway/walkway bridge (sometimes its a toll bridge - pennies) and enjoy barmouth and all it has to offer, or go right on the path and enjoy a leisurely meal at the George hotel, The accommodation itself is first class with a good layout and very well equipped. I have no hesitation in recommending this owner (very helpful) and his property, and I would also stay there again..... total family stay- 4 adults,4 kids and two dogs, with plenty of space for dogs and kids to enjoy the enclosed garden.

Excellent Holiday Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked Bryntirion for a week at the end of August. From the moment we stepped inside the property we knew we'd picked a gem of a property. It's a true home from home expect the views from Bryntirion win over the views from my own home! The place was immaculate with everything provided to make our stay comfortable, the owner even took the liberty to leave a USB stick with some great films for our entertainment. The gardens surrounding the property were just beautiful and very inviting, especially for the birds which we kept well fed for the owner. Our kids especially enjoyed exploring the grounds.

As for the general area, there is a fantastic lake within 5 minutes from the property and I must say the drive to it was an experience but well worth it! There is a excellent place to eat called 'George the third' a short drive away which served delicious food and reasonably priced. It's obviously popular as it was very lively but I must say you are unable to book a table therefore get there early to ensure you get seated.

Barmouth beach is around a 20 minute drive if you use the toll bridge. It's a lovely, clean sandy beach and very family friendly. We spent a couple of fun filled days there and enjoyed it very much.

Overall our holiday at Bryntirion was brilliant, I would highly recommend this property and we will certainly be returning in the future.

Nearest Barpub
4 Miles
George The Third Hotel
Nearest Train
2 Miles
Nearest Beach
2 Miles
Car: necessary


The lovely sandy beach of Fairborn is only 2 miles from the house and is also home to the Fairborn Narrow Gauge Steam Railway. This runs for 2 miles along the coast where at the end of the line you can catch a passenger ferry across the estuary to Barmouth.


Use of a car is recommended however there are some extremely enjoyable walks straight from the house. The idyllic Arthog Falls are only three minutes walk away and can be used as a starting point to numerous walks. There is also a very scenic cycle track to get you by bike to either Dolgellau or Barmouth. Cycles can be hired nearby.


Fairbourne is the nearest village which is just a 5 minute drive. The quaint little market town of Dolgellau is slightly further afield and Barmouth is a 11 mile drive around the beautiful Mawddach estuary.

Further Details:

Fairbourne is home to a Spar shop, as well as a local butchers and green grocers for more fresh produce. The next nearest supermarket is the Co op in Dolgellau, about 12 minutes drive from the house.

Barmouth has a variety of seaside shops and arcades for family amusement. The nicest way to get there is to cycle or walk the Mawddach trail with passes in front of the house and travels across the picturesque Barmouth bridge. This takes you over the estuary straight into Barmouth. Another option is to catch the 'normal' train from Fairbourne, again crossing the beautiful Barmouth bridge. The same train can be used to travel to Portmadoc where the Ffestiniog and Highland Steam railways can be used for a more romantic day out.

Along with the nearby George Pub right at the entrance to the toll bridge there are some very nice restaurants; The Bwyty Mawddach Restaurant and The Cross Foxes.

Other places of interest are numerous and include the Talyllyn Railway, The Corris Craft Centre, Dolgoch Falls and the hidden Blue Lagoon. These are just a few of the things available in the area.

Snowdonia National Park is packed with many actractions such as the mile long Zip lines, the Surf Park and Bounce Below.

Walking and cycling is in abundace with both available from Bryntirion's gate.
