The property

This converted chapel house, dating from 1832, lies in the small hamlet of Abertrinant, near Bryncrug, amidst a peaceful country lane, with welcoming hillside views bringing this beautiful location to your doorstep.

Perfect for families or friends, Y Bwthyn is wonderfully presented, with a luxurious home away from home feel, and cosy decor to really set the scene.

A lovingly restored hallway with locally-sourced timber invites you inside, continuing through to an open-plan living area with a dining room for seven people, and a charm-filled kitchen.

Why not spend an hour or two in the lounge, with its sumptuous sofas, and woodburning-effect electric stove; you can simply sit back under the low lighting and relax.

There is even a quirky window above the layout to brighten up the room.

Three bedrooms each boast their own unique personality, the first is located on the ground floor, with step-free access, elevated by a warm berry theme, and complimented by an en-suite wet room featuring its own vanity unit.

As you make your way up the stairs take a moment to appreciate the cosy landing layered in beams, with a Velux window creating your own little haven to read a book, or admire the wildlife passing by.

The upper level previews two further bedrooms, a beautiful double with floral prints and a lounge area, together with a snug family suite, overlooked by a skylight window.

The upstairs bathroom features historic timber beams from the original chapel, and its large airy skylights and solid oak floor makes it perfect to relax in the bath beneath the sky.

While these luxurious features preclude a upstairs shower,the downstairs wet room offers the cottage's spacious shower facilities.To be at one with the location, what better way to unwind and appreciate your surroundings, than on the front terrace, also housing a collection of furniture, as you listen to the sound of a Talyllyn Railway engine steaming through the adjacent valley to Tywyn, 5.3 miles away.

The area boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune-backed shoreline running from Aberdovey north to Tywyn, a Victorian seaside town with a promenade, leisure centre, cinema, restaurants, cafes and steam railway.

The beaches are perfect for holidaymakers, swimmers and surfers, while the estuary brings in a wide range of water sports enthusiasts and, particularly in the winter, marine wildlife and wildfowl.

The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dovey, Dysynni and Mawddach valleys and Coed y Brenin forest nearby.

A precious cottage in a southern part of Snowdonia.

About the location


Tywyn 2 miles; Aberdovey 6 miles.

The small village of Bryncrug, with a pub, stands in the Dysynni Valley, at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, and is only 6 miles from the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey, renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course. Aberdovey is often referred to as an "artist's paradise" with its pastel coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood. The village boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, a Victorian seaside town with a promenade, putting green, leisure centre, restaurants, cafes and fish and chip shops. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen, while the estuary attracts a wide range of watersports enthusiasts. The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dovey and Dysynni valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all year round location.
