Make a self catering cottage in Barmouth your home away from home

The coastal town and beach of Barmouth make a delightful base for family vacations and for those wanting to explore the Snowdonia National Park and Bala Lake. The slate-built houses overlook the wide statuary, harbour and the endless sandy beach. The bay is spanned by Barmouth bridge built in 1867. The harbour is still a bustling centre of activity with many fishing and leisure craft. There is a charitable RNLI Lifeboat based here which has a viewing gallery and a visitor centre.

Things to Do in Barmouth, North Wales Take the Narrow-gauge Railway

In 1895 a two mile railway was built by the owner of McDougall’s Flour to transport building materials to the construction site of Fairbourne Village. The line now offers a scenic trip between Fairbourne and Penrhyn Point and is easy to reach from cottages in Wales.

Walk the Bridge

The wooden-built Barmouth Bridge still carries local trains along its 900 yard (820m) span across the Mawddach estuary. For a nominal fee visitors can walk alongside the railway on a side path. It has particularly lovely views across the bay at sunset.

Cafés and Pubs

The town has ample cafés, pubs and restaurants to suit all dining requirements. The local fish and chips are delicious eaten out of paper on the harbour wall. The “Arousel Café” may be somewhat disturbing to families until you realize that it is actually named the “Carousel Café” but every time the letter C is replaced, locals remove it at night!

Ingrid went to the trouble of getting the Rayburn going so that the cottage was warm and a bottle of wine was waiting for us which was much appreciated. The whole property was clean and tidy and there was a handy folder giving helpful tips and places to visit as well as a visitors book which was full of well deserved complimentary comments on the property. There were loads of towels and extra bedding if needed. In fact, everything you need and more for a relaxing break. The cottage is the most comfortable and cosy place I have stayed and has the most stunning views over Cardigan Bay which can be seen from the settee in the lounge. I have to say, the bed is more comfortable than mine at home. Having stayed in November, the weather was clear and cold but the log burner was great at keeping the place nice and warm. Being set back from the main road, there is hardly any passing traffic apart from the odd sheep making a bid for freedom!! We will definitely be back next year and would recommend it to anyone.

It had everything we needed for a restful stay - a lovely log burner in the lounge for snuggling up on chilly evenings. There is a good pub just around the corner that serves traditional pub food as well as offering a wider menu in the restaurant. The location of the cottage was idea for travelling north, south or east and the sea views from just down the road were stunning - well wort a visit!
