  • "Don't hesitate, just book it."

    You won't be disappointed at Sealyons. Wake up in bed to a view of the sunrise coming over the top of the mountains. Breakfast on the patio overlooking the paddock with horses and rabbits. View the Fairbourne narrow gauge railway passing just a few yards away. Spend the day visiting the many attractions in the area. Take an evening stroll just round the corner to the beach and view the glorious sunset on the horizon. What more could you wish for to have a great holiday.

  • "This was a really lovely stay and we thoroughly enjoyed Sealyons as a base for getting heaps of fresh air amid a beautiful part of Wales."

    The accommodation was so well furnished with everything provided we could possibly need. It was also cleaned to a very high standard and we even had a super welcome pack that deserves a big thank you. Surrounded by mountains and minutes from a vast beach that was almost private due to so few people. Awesome. Fairbourne is very level too which is great for walking steadily if it’s not one’s strong point. We loved sitting on the decking in the evening listening to a cuckoo in the woods, seeing the wild rabbits who even visited and on one occasion chickens in the roadway outside, what’s not too like? Great quality T.V. C.D, Radio all enhanced our week’s stay. We will have lasting memories of the sun rising over the mountains and even the early mists and low cloud all giving the landscape unique character. Super stuff. On a constructive note we found the double bed perhaps needs a ‘topper’ and it is quite low ( one of us has knee problems), the bathroom transom window cannot be closed in a locked position and the back gate latch needs attention. This is minor stuff though, and nothing will detract from how much we enjoyed our stay, which was very much indeed. Thank you to the owner, your lovely property has set the benchmark we feel, it is that nice, light, and airy. It flows beautifully, a pleasure to be staying there.

  • "This holiday home was lovely and 5 of us were very comfortable."

    The home was extremely well equipped and was like a home from home. Could do with some operating instructions for dishwasher and oven. Once we got the hang of them we were fine. Window in bathroom needs attention as does the door into the single bedroom which is hard to get out of once fully shut. Overall I give it 10 out of 10. Lovely and quite and train service is good and reasonable for getting about. Would stay again.

    Thank you for your feedback we have now got someone sorting the problems. So sorry but as Sealyons has been fully booked we were unaware of the issues. We have now sorted. Glad you enjoyed Sealyons. Property Owner

    We loved the new Kitchen and shower. Lovely views and the owners have made it feel so homely and welcoming it has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. We sat on the decking and had breakfast one morning watching the little steam train. Close to the beach and so many fabulous walks and cycles. Sat also watching Rabbits and Horses in the field and even saw a Bird of Prey along with Seagulls. Many Happy Memories made and we will definitely be back soon.

    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.

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.
