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!

I would give it double if it was possible... Our brother and sister-in-law and children and not forgetting Lucy dog, had booked the house for the Christmas period and invited us and our puppy Nancy to spend some time with them. The location is fabulous, as is the house. Victoria and Sean have covered everything you could possibly think you would need whilst you are staying here. From board games and games room to Keep the children and adults entertained, some serous table football competitions!!! Perfect for dog lovers as across the road from the house is the Barmouth estuary with a path that takes you all the way into Barmouth. The house was all decorated for Christmas with a real tree and all the trimmings. For those of you that are reading this thinking how wonderful it would be to spend Christmas there..... sorry the C family have book it for Christmas 2017 already. If you are reading this thinking you would like to stay here, do not hesitate you will not be disappointed as the title states fantastic in every way!!!!
