About the property

Cottage in Barmouth, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales - Peaceful Location Near To Shops, Railway Station - 5 Mins Walk To Blue Flag Beach

Comfortable traditional fisherman's cottage located just off Barmouth centre. Handily located a short walk from the supermarket and the town centre with it's shops, restaurants and railway station. Barmouth, or Abermaw or even Y Bermo as it is known in Welsh, has officially been ‘Beautiful’ for over a century. The town developed on the back of the shipbuilding industry, lying as it does on the Mawddach river estuary, but then flourished as a popular seaside resort. Its lovely sandy beaches and stunning Snowdonia backdrop have continued to make it a holiday destination since the Victorian era. Lots to see and do - traditional seaside fun on the promenade and in the small fairground, two miles of superb sandy beach, good choice of accommodation and places to eat. Barmouth's location on the west coast of North Wales and lying between a mountain range and the sea on the mouth of the river Mawddach is arguably one of the most beautiful locations in Wales. It rests just within the south west corner of Snowdonia National Park and is seeped in a history rich with connections to the shipping and slate industries. The old town is well worth a visit with its steep steps and slate-roofed cottages on the side of a mountain. The harbour is beautiful and you can walk across the spectacular Barmouth Bridge spanning the river which can be an ideal activity for an evening stroll. The beach is large and has been awarded a 'Blue Flag' and is perfect for sunbathing and games and surfers can often be seen depending on the swells and time of year. Kids love the beach yet its size means those wanting to get away and relax in peace and quiet can do so easily. It also has a large range of shops, pubs, hotels and other accommodation, a funfair from March to October and amusement arcades. Enjoy a short walking tour of Barmouth’s maritime heritage by visiting the Sailors Institute, Ty Gwyn, Round House and Lifeboat Museum, all situated around the harbour area and open during daylight hours with free admission. Take a walk over the bridge that spans the Mawddach or up into the hills for unforgettable views of the sea and mountains.

Ideally located and well equipped cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is ideally located for beach, coastal road and access to main sights within the National Park area. You have walking distances to Barmouth town and beach. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance or 10 min drive. Close by secure parking is a real bonus.

Having 3 rooms offers some flexibility for families and the place now benefits from Wifi and having an Xbox (for games and streaming services). The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and the large utility room is highly useful if you stay longer than 1 week. The owner communicated promptly, accurately and in a pleasant manner.

This property could be delightful if someone loved it a little, first impressions count and the weeds growing across the front doorstep together with a front door that has seen much better times don't bode well! As soon as you open the front door the damp smell is apparent and would not go no matter how long we left the widows open to air the place - take note, sweet smelling air fresheners only make it worse!! The property was full of cobwebs , a few new ones is acceptable but these were old and far too many to have been 'overlooked'. The kitchen is modern and has all of the essentials, however finding a knife block full of dirty knives was a bit gross!

The extractor in the bathroom does not work so be prepared to have the window open while showering otherwise the room will be absolutely soaking, that said the shower is good and the suite is modern.

The whole house needs redecorating to get rid of the peeling paint, stains where the roof has obviously leaked in the past and black mould that is growing here and there . I'm not convinced that this property has had an electrical inspection as the wiring in the utility area looks a bit dodgy not to mention the bare wires in the wall light in the lounge. All of the windows are rotten - I'm talking about the aluminium spacers inside the once sealed units, add to that the central heating was turned off and it lead to a chilly and somewhat damp week.

All in all a massive disappointment in what could and should be a lovely property, it's up for sale so maybe the next owners will lavish a little love upon it.

In summer, its big sandy beach is a magnet for visitors, yet there’s so much space along miles of unbroken sands it never gets overcrowded. There’s a picturesque harbour too, perched on the mouth of the beautiful Mawddach Estuary – fishing, sea and estuary trips depart here. Barmouth is well located for watersports – there’s easy access to the sea via a slipway on the beach, though a craft exclusion zone is in place to protect swimmers. There’s good disabled access to the beach too


Railway station a short walk from the property so car not essential.
