    “We were surprised to find the second bedroom was only accessible through the main bedroom a floor plan would have been better when viewing to book.”

    We noticed some of the electrical equipment was not PAT tested and that the equipment that had stickers were out of date. The beauty and quietness of the area were all we could have wished for and we enjoyed our short break

Abergwynant Farm Cottages

Some of a selection of six former estate properties offering cosy and comfortable accommodation, set on the owners’ mixed working farm, alongside their seasonal caravan park, on the delightful Mawddach Estuary and just 5 minutes’ walk from the popular Mawddach Trail. These quaint traditional cottages are nestled down a private drive in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, only 4 miles from Dolgellau. These traditional cottages are scattered across the farm, but are mostly clustered around the stream that tumbles down towards the river. They have been furnished with comfort in mind, with well-equipped kitchens, electric ovens, dining areas, and comfy seating, as well as modern TVs and DVDs with WiFi available in the farmhouse annexe. Three of the four cottages have private enclosed gardens with seating, with many being close to the melodic sound of the babbling brook, while Riverside Cottage has a seating area and uninterrupted views over the pretty stream. Each cottage also has use of communal areas and the opportunity to sit and watch the owners’ beautiful horses, or meander across the owners’ land that is criss-crossed with a myriad of footpaths. These cottages benefit from direct access to the Mawddach Trail, situated in the valley with fabulous walks leading to the fabulous seaside resort of Fairbourne or the majestic mountain peaks of Cader Idris. Remember to bring your bikes to discover the fabulous cycling paths and the renowned Coed-y-Brenin cycle trail. Dolgellau is 4 miles away, which offers everyday shopping and local producers. A short drive and you will be at the beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay, with the sandy beaches at Fairbourne less than 6 miles away, and popular Wales Coast Path stretching in both directions. The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as a trip on the Tal-y-Llyn narrow gauge railway. The area is peppered with lakes offering fishing, water sports and sailing or perhaps try some white-water rafting. Across the beautiful Mawddach Estuary is the imposing Victorian seaside town of Barmouth, accessible by the pretty bridge that spans the estuary mouth.

The property

A cute little cottage in an idyllic setting on the banks of the pretty stream that dissects the farm, and linked to the rest of the land by the pretty stone bridge.

Sit and relax on the private seating area to while away the hours watching the stream, and maybe catch sight of an elusive Dipper.

With sleeping arrangements ideal for a couple or small family, there is also a compact kitchen and a cosy sitting room.

Note: This property is near to Refs. 932940, 932941 and 939007, together they sleep 21.

About the location


Dolgellau 4 miles.

Penmaenpool is a delightful village set alongside the River Mawddach, which winds its way alongside the local town of Dolgellau to the sea between Fairbourne and Barmouth. The village is scattered along the breathtaking Mawddach Estuary on the popular Mawddach Trail, against the backdrop of the foothills of the imposing peak of Cadair Idris. Boasting a traditional pub alongside the little historic toll bridge, a stay in this pretty village is the perfect chance to walk the longer circular walk returning via the stunning railway bridge at the mouth of the estuary. Visit Fairbourne or Barmouth for beaches and steam railways, explore the coastline of the Llyn Peninsula or Anglesey, or head into Snowdonia to tackle the mountains or just marvel at the scenery. An ideal base whatever the time of year.
