  • "2nd time staying here, views are amazing, lovely clean, comfortable property with very friendly, accommodating hosts."

    Got another booking for March and can't wait. Local shop/butchers stocking everything needed, walking distance within mile or so of a very nice pub and beach. Regular bus service with trains not operational at min due to bridge work in Barmouth but wasn't an issue. Would definitely recommended staying here.

    The welcome you get, the arrival gifts. Unbelievable. It was clean, everything you wanted. Views and we had fantastic weather. We have stayed in quite a few places and we can honestly say Bryan Coch Bach, was amazing. The view, the situation of the place for easy access to site seeing. You could not ask for anything more. As for the Owners they we’re welcoming, nothing to much trouble, helped us to find the quickest ways, and their dogs really lifted us. We just lost our Lab (Marley). Although he was with us. They are down to earth lovely people. We want to go back when we can. We have a holiday booked for next year, but we will be back. Thank you we really enjoyed it thereafter Bryan Coch Bach. ⭐️

    There is a lot of folks out there that like their internet, the cottage has a very fast connection. Good location for all of North and Mid Wales, most of the tourist sites are within an hour's drive. We did not eat local as we eat while we are out , but there seems a very good choice. If you do have any problems the lovely owners Alma and David live next door.

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.
