About Paul Winfer

I have been a regular visitor to this part of wales since I was a child and still love the area, I decided to buy a property in Fairbourne 3 years ago and spent the next 6 months renovating it to high standard. We still use the bungalow ourselves and you will find many personal touches and attention to detail.

Paul Winfer purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Paul Winfer chose Gwynedd - Snowdonia

We chose to buy in Fairbourne due to its peaceful location far enough away from the more comercialised areas of Barmouth but close enough to reach within a few minutes. The transport links are great with a train staion and bus stop in the village. We enjoy walking and cycling and the area has some spectacular walks on your doorstep including the blue lake and the dis-used railway line along the Mawdach estuary. You can walk or cycle across Barmouth bridge and Coed-y-Brenin mountain bike centre is a 30 minute drive away.

Fairbourne has a beautiful long sandy beach, the village is well away from the main road and the activities available make it the perfect place to take children.

What makes this bungalow unique

The bungalow is in a very quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance of the beach, train station, shops, pub, indian restaurant, golf course, amusement arcade, and the Fairbourne minature steam railway. Perfect for families or for couples looking for peace and quiet.

Marvellous holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for yet another fantastic stay in your beautiful holiday home! The bungalow is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and you really have thought of everything to make your guests stay enjoyable! I've been visiting Fairbourne since I was a child and now that we've found this magnificent holiday home, it means I can now take my own children to experience this special place!!

Fantastic family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd stay at number 5. As usual, it was fantastic. We have never stayed in a cleaner, better equipped and furnished holiday let, anywhere, ever! A proper home from home. It is a credit to Paul and Simone, the owners, who are very easy to communicate with.

Fairbourne is a hidden gem of the Welsh coast and well worth spending your holidays there.

If you are the energetic type, walk or cycle up to Cregennan Lakes at the foot of Cadair Idris ( you can drive too). The view back towards Barmouth and Fairbourne is breath taking.

Fairbourne has its own narrow gauge railway and the Talyllyn Railway is only a half hour drive down the coast.

The good old family favourite, Barmouth, is just the other side of the Mawddach estuary. The list of places to go and see, which are within easy travelling distance is enormous. Or just take the 5 minute walk to the 2 mile sandy beach and relax.

As Comfortable as Home

  • 5 of 5

By the end of our stay, it felt like our own home. Each room is spacious enough to have never felt crowded. The temperature was easy to maintain at our comfort level. Even in the winter, the exterior sun room was quickly warmed, and it was a joy to eat our meals in there. I never heard any of our neighbors from inside the house, so it was a great place for reading as well.

The local town was always so calm and easy going. There were enough small market shops in walking distance that we had no need of a car unless we wanted to explore beyond our town. The train stop was close and easy to plan routes along the Cambrian Line for a good price.

This location was also a great launching point for several excursions into Snowdonia national park. It was very easy for us to see castles, go hiking, biking, or kayaking, in a variety of beautiful locations close by.

Although Aberystwyth was easy to get to, and we went often, I would especially recommend this home to anyone who prefers to avoid larger cities.

Finally, the hosts were very kind and easy to communicate with.
