  • "Had a lovely stay at Deu-Ddrws."

    It was cosy, clean and comfortable. We stayed for a week and settled in and could have stayed longer. The cottage was well equipped, and being in the centre of Barmouth meant easy access to the restaurants, beach and shops. Would recommend.

  • "A really charming converted fisherman's cottage in which much of the character remains while it has been converted to provide modern standards of comfort."

    Barmouth is a sweet little town perfect for a beach holiday for the kids but with so many activities in the area for adults as well . This part of Snowdonia is very beautiful and the cottage is only a few steps from the seaside amenities and the mountain paths.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review, thank you for your kind words. Property Owner

  • "It’s a lovely cottage."

    The beds are comfortable as are the sofas in the lounge area. It’s situated on a quiet, peaceful street but is only a few metres from the Main Street where there’s shops, cafes, pubs etc.

  • "Deu-Ddrws is situated in a very convenient location close to the middle of Barmouth but is very quiet like it is outside the town."

    The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped and lots of cupboard space in the bedrooms to put your stuff. Internet TV in living and bedroom was great. Overall it was a very good experience and available at a good price.

    Many thanks Hendy for the review, glad you enjoyed the stay. Property Owner

  • "A short walk from rail station , very easy to find."

    I chose the property for it's heritage and traditionally built features like slate flooring downstairs. Was not disappointed it felt like a direct link to an old way of life in the fishermens' cottage. Such friendly welcome by local people and a real community of people very proud to be 50% Welsh. The short walk to the beach, which is better than any European beach I have seen, beautiful clear sea. Felt at home and didn't want to leave. My kids asked if we could come back to the same cottage again. The beauty of the area is unprecedented enclosed by hills and mountains. Outdoor life is a really big thing at Barmouth with water sports, walking, cycling, eating out etc.

The property

Tucked away in the popular seaside location of Barmouth, Gwynedd.

Discover this traditional 200 year old fishermans cottage, Deu-Ddrws.

This delightful cottage was historically two individual cottages, hence the name Deu-Ddrws, Welsh for “Two-Doors”.

Brimming with character and boasting exposed stone walls, a beamed ceiling, a charming open-plan interior, as well as close access to Barmouth's amenities, the beach and Snowdonia National Park.

Deu-Ddrws welcomes up to five guests to discover all that North Wales has to offer.

Unload your bags approx. 40 metres walk from the cottage and then park up in the nearby long-stay car park (approx. 300 metres level walk).

On entering your new abode, set the mood lighting and kick back on the plush sofas, ready to cosy up to read your book, listen to your choice of tunes or watch TV with a cup of tea or glass of your favourite tipple.

There is also a feature open stone hearth with a centre piece electric fire to ensure you stay toasty warm all year round.

Let the feast commence by settling down at the homely dining table, ready to pop open a bottle of fizz and toast your memorable getaway with the ones you love the most!

If you begin to feel sleepy, slope off to the funky bathroom to indulge in a long soak in the tub, ensuring a good night sleep in hotel style bedding.

Choose from three neatly-presented bedrooms to catch your rest, including a double room with Smart TV, a bunk room and a very unique single room, catering to all types of family groups.

Kickstart your itinerary only paces away from your doorstep in Barmouth, home to the picturesque Barmouth Beach where you can while away the days sunbathing, paddling the shores or trying your hand at a range of water sports; close by is Barmouth Harbour and a man made causeway across to what historically was the ‘island', an idyllic spot to enjoy a scenic stroll and soak in the far-reaching coastal/mountain views.

Within the harbour area, you can take advantage of various fantastic eateries when you need to refuel, or simply indulge in traditional fish and chips as you admire your seaside surroundings.

There are other great takeaway options also, including Indian food, Chinese food and Mediterranean Kebabs, additionally, there are a couple of high end restaurants so really all culinary bases are covered!

There are lots of walks to be had in the local area, you can walk (or cycle) along the 'Barmouth bridge' and down the delightful Mawddach Trail, which runs alongside the Mawddach Estuary, to the pretty town of Dolgellau along the course of an old railway line.

Above Barmouth is Dinas Oleu, the first parcel of land to be given to the National Trust and the views are well worth the steep climb.

Indoor activities in the area include Barmouth Leisure centre, Barmouth amusements, Harlech swimming pool/indoor climbing walls, LLanfair slate caverns, the Welsh Highland steam railway in Portmadog.

From Barmouth you can explore the coastline by train too, head North to Harlech with its magnificent castle, brooding over the village.

To the south is Tywyn, home of the Talyllyn Railway, where you can enjoy a ride on a narrow gauge steam train into the hills to Nant Gwernol.
