The cottage

Bryn Hyfryd is a superb semi-detached bungalow meaning beautiful hill is aptly named because it is sat in an elevated position overlooking the Mawddach Estuary in the village of Penmaenpool, near to Dolgellau.

Perfect for a family or group of friends, this well-presented bungalow provides spacious accommodation in a tranquil setting, surrounded by spectacular views of woodland, the estuary and Grade I listed toll bridge.

Upon entering the accommodation, you are greeted by an open-plan living area furnished to a high standard.

Choose from a cosy night in front of the woodburning stove, or on a summers' evening open the patio doors and step outside for a glass of wine on the raised decking overlooking the estuary.

Prepare picnics for walks along the Mawddach Trail in the well-equipped kitchen, or hearty meals to serve at the dining table.

Through the hallway there are three bedrooms; a double, a bunk room and a king-size double with patio doors out onto the decking, a tranquil spot to enjoy your morning coffee.

The large gardens surrounding the cottage offer a peaceful retreat to lie back and enjoy the sunshine.

Gather herbs from the garden for summer salads, or simply unwind and listen to the birdsong.

Just a short stroll from an excellent village pub, and 3 miles from the market town of Dolgellau, Bryn Hyfryd is within easy reach of a good range of amenities.

You are spoilt for choice with a fantastic variety of walks and cycle routes on your doorstep, including the Penmaenpool and Maddawn Trail, as well as the mountain bike centre in Coed-y-Brenin.

Walk across Barmouth Bridge to see where the mountains meet the sea, and enjoy an afternoon on the sandy beach or tackle Cadair Idris.

Adrenaline junkies have the nearby popular attractions of Zip World and Bounce Below just a 30-minute drive away.

Further afield, the picturesque Italianate village of Portmeirion, the historic Harlech castle.

Bryn Hyfryd is a wonderful base for a memorable holiday.

About the location


Dolgellau 4 miles.

Penmaenpool is a delightful village set alongside the River Mawddach, which winds its way alongside the local town of Dolgellau to the sea between Fairbourne and Barmouth. The village is scattered along the breathtaking Mawddach Estuary on the popular Mawddach Trail, against the backdrop of the foothills of the imposing peak of Cadair Idris. Boasting a traditional pub alongside the little historic toll bridge, a stay in this pretty village is the perfect chance to walk the longer circular walk returning via the stunning railway bridge at the mouth of the estuary. Visit Fairbourne or Barmouth for beaches and steam railways, explore the coastline of the Llyn Peninsula or Anglesey, or head into Snowdonia to tackle the mountains or just marvel at the scenery. An ideal base whatever the time of year.
