  • "Shocked to find someone else's underwear & socks in bedroom draws, plumbing in bathroom needs attention, also one small bath towel for a full week of showers & hand drying is not sufficient."

    bonus's were the cottage was warm & cosy, very pleasant to sit outside on the garden patio, all neighbours very friendly. Lovely area for a relaxing holiday, with a great beach.

  • "A beautifullly placed retreat from everyday life."

    Due to covid, the stay felt like a month in Cyprus! Train is a major plus in the area. Definitely stay again.

  • "The house is on a nice quiet street with excellent views of the mountains."

    The kids loved watching the chickens that kept coming into the garden and the fact that there were sheep wandering up and down the street. Also, if you’re into railways, the Fairbourne Railway passes close to the house. Excellent, relaxing holiday.

  • "Excellent facilities in the cottage and quiet location."

    The garden was ideal for relaxing and sitting peacefully in the sun. We wanted a restful holiday and we chose a perfect place. The railway station nearby was brilliant for travelling to other towns. The sandwich shop in the village was great - fantastic food to reheat for evening meals. We walked into Barmouth over the bridge and had lunch In a lovely pub. The scenery on the road to Tywyn was stunning, it was a clear sunny day and you could see for miles.

    The bungalow was perfect - very warm, cosy and comfortable and it provided a good base to explore the area. The little train along the coast and the ferry across to Barmouth was a great way to start the week. There's loads to do in the area so will probably go back! Thanks again.

  • "We have just returned from a brilliant week staying at Sealyons in Fairbourne."

    The bungalow sits on a very quiet street just a few minutes walk from the beach. The bungalow is clean, comfortable, spacious, and had everything we needed for the week - a home from home! The decking at the back of the property was lovely to sit out on in an evening and look at the views. Just around the corner, Fairbourne beach is beautiful with fantastic scenery. We also found many other beautiful places to visit for walking nearby. I would not hesitate in recommending Sealyons for your holiday. We had a marvellous week and did not want to come home! Thank you to the owners Dave and Lisa for our welcome gifts, a lovely bungalow, and for getting in touch to return our left belongings!

  • "The bunglow was lovely and warm, modern and had everything home from home and more."

    It was clean and comfortable. The are 2 shops, a chip shop, butchers and indian resturant close by about 7min walk. Also the train station is just past the shops for a convenient way to get to barmouth, although the walk is lovely through the track past the golf course and bridge takes around just over an hour. We would also recommend the miniture steam train which costs about £10 Adult and £1 child. Also blue lake is beautiful especially on a sunny day its a good walk and would need your walking boots on as it can be a little wet and muddy going through the tunnels, the views are stunning from up there. We also went to Bala lake which is again a lovely place to visit. I would highly recommend staying here if your wanting to be in the area is a quiet location great for kids as it has an enclosed garden, bored games high chair, cot, hairdryer pots pans alsorts of utensils for cooking including a slow cooker. We will be going back to Wales in the summer and would definatley book here again.

  • "Very cosy and comfortable bungalow which was just right for our requirements."

    Lots of thoughtful decor including pictures and photos of local area on the walls, cushions, bedding and ornaments that all follow a beach theme - all making it a welcoming and relaxing property. Lovely views over to Cadir Idris from patio windows. Easy walk to the sandy beach and beautiful sunsets to be seen from the sea wall. Worth taking your own kitchen things such as washing powder/liquid, dishcloth, dishwasher tablets etc, just in case there's none there. Also worth noting there's currently no dryer, but a drying rack .

    Extremely good broadband speed (which would put many large cities to shame), important for modern day living, even on holiday.

The property

A well-appointed detached bungalow, situated in a small residential cul de sac in the centre of the popular seaside village of Fairbourne within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park.

The cottage is only a two minute walk from Fairbourne's renowned two-mile long sandy beach making it perfect for family seaside holidays.

Sealyons offers comfortable, light and airy accommodation, tastefully decorated in a coastal theme.

The accommodation has three bedrooms, the main bedroom benefitting from having a king-size bed and a modern bathroom.

The cosy sitting room has a lovely large corner sofa, great for snuggling up on to watch your favourite film in the evening, enjoying a warming glow from the modern living flame-effect electric fire for those chillier evenings.

The kitchen is well equipped with a spacious dining room with patio doors opening onto a wonderful decked area with rattan furniture, a perfect place to unwind and relax after a busy day building sandcastles or walking on the hills.

This space is ideal for al fresco dining or to simply enjoy a glass of something chilled and take in the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and scenery, encompassing the old Golwern Slate Quarry high above the village, nestled into the hillside.

Why not have a walk up there during your stay and visit the Blue Lake, a very deep, clear blue pool in a mysterious cavern?

Steps from the decked area lead down to a lower patio with table and chairs and the wonderful lawned garden is a safe environment, great for the children to play in and have a bit of a kick about and run off the last of their energy.

This lovely cottage is perfect for family fun and wonderful walks on the long sandy beach.

Fairbourne village has several amenities including a newsagent, grocer, butcher, Post Office, general store, restaurants, fish and chip shop and a pub, as well as the historic Fairbourne Steam Railway, great for all the family.

The whole area is surrounded by stunning views and walks along the local beaches and the stunning Mawddach Estuary, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Fairbourne golf course is just a short stroll away.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities, cycle trails, renowned mountain biking facilities and watersports.

Why not see this beautiful area from the saddle?

The nearby Bwlchgwyn farm offers pony rides and treks along the beach.

The popular market town of Dolgellau is less than ten miles away and Barmouth, with lovely shopping and a regal harbour is just a three mile walk across the estuary bridge or a fourteen mile drive.

This is a wonderful location and beachside base for the perfect family holiday, all year round.
