About the property

2 bedroom cottage in a beautiful rural setting overlooking the Mawddach Estuary

Peacefully set in the village of Arthog at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of the Cader Idris, Arthog Hall Barns have stunning views of the Rhinog Mountains and are ideally positioned opposite the Mawddach Trail, giving access by foot, or bicycle to the famous Abermaw Bridge, Fairbourne Beach, Penmaenpool with its waterside pub and beyond to the market town of Dolgellau, from where the more ambitious can take advantage of the Coed y Brenin mountain biking trail.

The wider area can be explored via the Cambrian coastal railway from nearby Morfa Mawddach Station linking to the national rail network at Machynlleth.

The area has a wealth of bird watching, including the RSPB site at Penmaenpool, fishing and mountain walking, as well as close access to a number of beautiful beaches, the nearest being the unspoilt Fairbourne Beach (Blue-Flag) two miles away.

The Aberdovey and Royal St. Davids links golf courses are a twenty-minute drive away.

We also have another house in the next courtyard which can sleep up to 10 people - Tan Y Coed - property listing number - 1576350

the properties can be rented together for large groups/families to sleep a total of 14-15

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

From the moment arrived everything was perfect. Victoria was there on our arrival and was warm and friendly.

The accommodation was clean and well equipped. We had only been there approx a hour had taken our dog Holly for a walk after the long drive and came back to find freshly baked bread hanging on the door.

Bed very comfy, bedding and towels all good quality.

As for the area beautiful the views, the walks are right on your doorstep.

We walked to Barmouth on a couple of occasions and then the other way to The George III meals are lovely huge portions and fabulous views.

We also ordered some bacon, sausage and eggs from Victoria which she sources from a local farm they are really nice and on our second delivery also received homemade scones and blackberry jam ( still warm ) yummy.

Victoria and Shaun couldn't have done anymore to make us feel welcome we shall definitely be returning. Thank you so much for helping us make family memories. Xxx

Cosy, nicely decorated and well equipped accommodation

A cosy well equipped cottage for 4. Tastefully decorated with lots of small extras including a welcome hamper. Fantastic views across the estuary with close access to the Snowdonia national park. Very helpful and accommodating owner.

Really great place to stay - couldn't recommend more.

  • 5 of 5

We've been to a fair few places in the U.K. in recent years with our Labrador, George, and this was probably our favourite.

Really good standard to the accommodation and it's perfectly situated for some great walks on the Mawddach Trail, particularly to Barmouth.

Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting some relaxation and dog friendly walks in beautiful surroundings.

Great cottage in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Within 75mins drive of the furthest Zipworld location and hour to Snowdon's Pyg/Miners trail car park. Easy stroll to Barmouth beach and pubs. Cottage has everything you could want and is very comfortable. Perfect for family or friends. We wish we could have stayed longer.

A beautiful, comfy cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent the weekend at this lovely house and whilst we were lucky enough to have fantastic weather while we were there, the house is well equipped and comfortable enough to be holed up in it for a rainy weekend without any complaint. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly (and provided the best home baked bread we've ever tasted!), the location is perfect and the house feels very luxurious. It's a lovely touch that the owners provide dog towels and a tray for placing muddy boots out of the way but there were a couple of things that would have made our stay even more perfect. As one of the dogs we had with us has the attention span of a flea when it comes to obedience, an enclosed garden would have made our stay all the more relaxing. Similarly, one of the bedrooms has a door to the steps on the front of the house as its only window and due to the high temperatures while we were there, we wanted to sleep with the door open but had to barricade it to sleep soundly without concern of escaping canines - a barn door arrangement would be better for that door. All in all, a fantastic stay, we loved it.
