  • "Superb Bungalow in a great location mid way between Barmouth and Harlech."

    Owners are so lovely. This was our second stay at Bryn Coch Bach... and likely won't be our last.

  • "Excellent property, comfortable and very clean."

    Set in beautiful landscape gardens. We had the hottest week on record, end to end sunshine, lovely quite garden to relax in, sunsets were amazing. The beds, you didn't want to get out of because you'd had a good nights sleep. A well stocked kitchen, with everything you could possibly need from cutlery to tea bag squeezer. A nice bottle of wine, and sweet cakes were left for us along with the much needed pint of milk. for that first cup of tea. Alma and David were there if you needed them, other than watering the plants and cutting the lawn, you wouldn't know they were there. Thank you for a much needed break

  • "Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely cottage."

    We enjoyed lots of walks around Barmouth Beach & Harlech Castle. Would highly recommend The Talyllyn Railway to see the waterfalls at Dolgoch. The Tilman pub and the Last Inn in Barmouth are great places to go for a drink. We had Fish & Chips from Billys and a great cure from the Saffron. Would also recommend the Hufan Artro for somewhere to eat. Hope to visit again soon from the Hemmings family :)

    Although attached to owners property it is very private and 5* hosts are very welcoming and on hand if needed but not intrusive. Very comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean. A great base to explore the coast and hills and easy to travel further afield. Would love to return. Only downside is you can’t control the weather but added rain enhances the waterfalls!

    The host is welcoming & very helpful and responded to any queries promptly. I feel she went above & beyond to make my stay comfortable. The accommodation is spacious and bright with great views . I’m glad I chose the location as it’s halfway between both Barmouth & Harlech with easy access to both yet more peaceful. The added bonus of being dog friendly and having an electric car charger made Bryn Coch Bach a real winner.

    A fabulous stay was had, lovely quiet location, wonderful views…very attentive owners. The kitchen was well equipped, living room very relaxing with stunning views which are also carried through to the kitchen/dining room. The beds were super comfortable we almost didn’t want to get out of them. Outside socket to charge our car for a small charge direct to the owners. I cannot wait to visit again.

The property

A single-storey cottage adjoining the owner’s home, centrally located in an elevated position, on the outskirts of the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy in North Wales.

The cottage has fantastic views over the village, extending across open pasture land towards the coastline and the sea, and will suit families and couples who wish to explore this lovely area.

The comfortable accommodation is all ground floor, having a lovely cosy sitting room with two sofas to sink into and relax after a long day of activity, and on those warm summer evenings open up the patio doors to enjoy the fresh sea air.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a light and bright dining area with table, chairs and an additional sofa, an ideal place to sit and enjoy a leisurely breakfast and take in the views from the picture window or enjoy some quiet time with a good book.

The two bedrooms are delightful with the main room having a super king-size bed.

To the front of the cottage is a patio with table and chairs so you can look out to sea whilst enjoying alfresco dining in this wonderful area of Snowdonia, or enjoy a morning coffee whilst relaxing in the large lawned garden.

Bryn Coch Bach is ideally situated with a fantastic pub and restaurant within easy reach and just a short drive away you will find golden beaches and sand dunes that stretch for miles along this stunning coastline.

The cottage is well-positioned for you to walk on the Welsh Coastal Path and the Ardudwy and Mawddach Trails.

Bryn Coch Bach is also on Route 8 (Lon Las) of the National Cycle Route and a request stop on the Cambrian Coast Railway Line, plus Llanbedr Airfield is just three miles away and is open for civilian flights.

A short drive away, explore Harlech with its majestic 13th century castle, now a World Heritage Site, or enjoy a round or two at Royal St. David's golf course.

Barmouth is only five miles away, with its quaint shops, quayside restaurants and Blue Flag beach making a great day out for everyone.

A little further afield are the full delights of the Snowdonia National Park, with picturesque walks, lakes and waterfalls for hikers to enjoy.

This cottage offers the perfect location for a wonderful break all year round.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops and pubs. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
