  • “We had a comfortable, peaceful stay at Hafod y Gors with our two dogs.”

    The place was spotless. ...

    The place was spotless. We were even lucky with some good weather for a few days, with lots of great places to see. The views from the bungalow are absolutely stunning. We loved sitting in the rear conservatory, so peaceful. The only thing that would have made our stay excellent and relaxed would have been to have the garden fully enclosed, with a side gate and stock fencing at the bottom of the garden to prevent dogs from going into the ditch. A broom would be good to sweep up grass cuttings in the conservatory. Overall we had a great time and would like to return there soon.

The property

Sitting within a quiet cul-de-sac in the desirable seaside village of Fairbourne, home to the much celebrated Fairbourne Steam Railway, Hafod-y-Gors offers the ultimate holiday home from which to discover both the delights of the countryside and coast of Wales.

A semi-detached bungalow with spectacular mountain views and a range of amenities just a short walk away, it's sure to be a holiday to remember with your loved ones.

Enjoy settling down each evening in front of the electric fire as you watch all your favourite shows on the television for a relaxing night in, the homely aura of the room bringing a sense of serenity, or for the avid twitcher, make your way into the plush second sitting room, where a sofa awaits you to settle down and make the most of your beautiful views and the nature that inhabits it, and enjoy watching the sun set with a glass of wine.

The kitchen offers all you could need for a week-long stay, modest but well-equipped, this stylish spot provides all the essentials for whipping up your favourite meals, the sunny dining room making the ultimate spot to come together and toast to a terrific holiday.

When it comes time to rest, choose from either a super-king-size bed conveniently doubling up as a twin on request, with views over the beautiful back garden and the wonder beyond, or the double room giving you easy access into the conservatory; each room offers a homely aura and a snug spot to rest each day.

Begin each day with either a relaxing bath or a refreshing shower in the gleaming bathroom, before soaking up the beauty of the area on the front lawn.

A short stroll will bring you to the centre of the village, where you can find all the shops you could need for a self-catered stay, as well as a bar and restaurant for celebrating any special occasions.

Enjoy a game of golf at the local course, before exploring the wonder of the historical landmark known as the Dragon's Teeth, resting amongst the family-friendly beach.

For a more relaxing day out, take a stroll along the Victorian Barmouth Railway Bridge and soak up the scenery of the Mawddach Estuary before exploring the excitement of The Dragon Theatre, a converted chapel where you can watch films and shows, as well as there being various events here throughout the year.

Be sure to venture into the National Park too, where you can experience mountain-top views like never before, the perfect challenge for the avid ambler, or take the train to the peak of Snowdon to experience the wonder from a different view.

Offering access to Portmeirion, Porthmadog, and much more, Hafod-y-Gors is the ultimate choice for your seaside escape to Wales.
