    “The bungalow had everything we ...”
    The bungalow had everything we needed and the garden was completely fenced in, which gave us great peace of mind for the safety of our dog. The situation was close to the sea, railway station, and the local shop.

The property

A well-appointed and comfortable seaside bungalow on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, where the mountains meet the sea, in the popular village of Fairbourne.

With its long stretch of sandy beach, Fairbourne is perfectly situated for the beach or various walks.

Why not take a trip on the historic Fairbourne steam railway or just a short drive will take you deeper into the Snowdonia National Park, or perhaps explore the Cymer Abbey in Dolgellau?

This lovely cottage is set over one level with three bedrooms and a family bathroom and there is a sitting room with dining area, which is central to the property.

There is also a small alcove-style kitchen area and steps leading down to a conservatory boasting comfy seating.

Here you can sit and plan your day’s adventures over a morning cup of tea, whilst enjoying the far-reaching mountain views.

Outside, you can sit on the patio and spacious lawned area and reminisce about your day’s activities whilst the children and dogs run off the last of their energy.

The area is surrounded by stunning views and walks along the local beaches and the stunning Mawddach Estuary, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a local golf course is less than half a mile away.

Here you are ideally placed to explore the mountains of Snowdonia, being in the shadow of the striking Cader Idris, and the area offers numerous outdoor activities such as pony trekking on the local beaches, canoeing on Bala Lake and fantastic cycling opportunities.

The popular market town of Dolgellau is less than ten miles away and Barmouth, with lovely shopping and regal harbour, is just a three mile walk across the estuary bridge or a fourteen mile drive, making this a perfect base for families looking to explore the local towns and enjoy the beaches, walks, outdoor activities and scenery further afield.
