BRYNYGWIN COUNTRY HOUSE & COTTAGES
SELF CATERING IN DOLGELLAU, GWYNEDD
Brynygwin Self Catering Country House & Cottages could hardly be better located. Safely within the Snowdonia National Park, it enjoys a completely rural setting with 5 acres of mature informal garden full of colourful shrubs and fine trees, fields to either side, 15 acres of woodland above, and a river for fishing just across the little road hidden below. Yet, nestling way down beneath the mass of Cadair Idris (the 8-mile-long, 9-peak-high mountain range flanking Snowdonia’s scenic Mawddach estuary), it stands just one level mile west of the market town of Dolgellau and east of the picturesque estuary-head village of Penmaenpool, both accessible by road or trail.
Brynygwin proves designer-suited for holidays away from modernity, rush and noise. Cars can park alongside their accommodation. Children and dogs can be safe in the enclosed cottage gardens, or free in the wider grounds. Wildlife lovers can enjoy birds, bats, badgers, and wild flowers. Fishermen can use our 100 metres of private riverbank and free permit to all the Dolgellau Angling Association waters. Walkers can set out in any direction with one of the many guidesheets provided. Mountain-bikers, narrow-gauge railway riders and castle connoisseurs find themselves ringed round with choice for their chosen pursuits.
The two holiday cottages are next door to each other, as are the two flats in the house which is separated from the cottages by just a narrow pathway. So either pair taken together allow their guests to be separate yet together, and sometimes people take all four places (maximum sleeping 26). The Mews can sleep 3 using a pull-out in the living-room, and is ideal for dog-owners and bird-lovers. The three-bedroomed Ty Clyd, once the stables, hay-loft and tack room for the family country house, sleeps up to 5 or 6.
Flats 2 and 3 have their own first-floor landing with their separate entrances facing each other. Their spacious rooms are characterized by interesting windows and variously-shaped ceilings giving them a huge amount of character. Both flats have oil-fired central heating and open log fires. The ground floor comprises laundry room, store rooms and passageways where bikes and outdoor gear can be secure. An extra and separate twin-bedded Loft Bedroom can be used to make another bedroom with either of the flats. It is furnished as a bedroom with two adjacent 3’ divan beds. It is not en suite but if used with either of the flats in the house only 100 yards away, a downstairs toilet is available, and an extra key to the appropriate flat would be provided. You could think of it as an upmarket stone tent! It is entirely private, being accessed only by its original outside flight of stone steps, yet is not isolated, being part of the cottages complex.
