Lounge with open fire place and bay window, dining room overlooking the garden, bathroom, modern recently fitted kitchen, master bedroom with king size bed, second bedroom with full size bunk beds. Front and rear gardens, patio area with good views, with outside dining furniture and gas barbecue. Private hot tub (seats 5), with lighting, massage jets and bubbles.

The rear garden is enclosed and terraced on two levels, and care must be taken when approaching the edges of the terraces. Distant Sea Views from the hot tub!

The cottage is in a designated 'Dark Skies' reserve, and the quantity and brightness of stars that can be seen whilst relaxing in the hot tub is amazing.

Croquet, boules, and garden badminton equipment is there for you to use in the garden, or on the beach.

There are traditional family board games provided, a 1960's record player (and records!), lots of books, as well as free fast Wi-Fi, X-Box & games, family DVDs and TV.

Bryn Heulog is in the hamlet of Friog, right by an award winning beach, with the foothills of Cadair Idris and the famous 'Blue Lake' behind it.

The area has fantastic walking and cycling attractions, to suit all abilities and experience. Coed-y-Brenin Forest Park Mountain Bike Centre is close by, as is the family friendly Mawddach Trail, which can include a crossing of the famous Barmouth Bridge, or a stop at the George III by the toll bridge in Penmaenpool for a pub lunch.

You can walk from the front door to the hills behind which reach to the beautiful and dramatic Cregennen Lakes, and further on to Cadair Idris itself, passing lots of local waterfalls, Victorian Slate and Gold Mines, with amazing views over Cardigan Bay.

The beach is a few minutes walk away, and is always quiet. It is sandy, and gently sloping, and perfect for families. There is always lots of opportunity for kite flying, rock-pooling, fishing, kayaking, paddling, swimming, beachcombing, sandcastle making, crabbing, or just lying down in the sun with a good book.

The narrow gauge railway at Fairbourne is a very short walk away, and is one of the famous little trains of Wales. You can catch it to 'The Point' facing Barmouth, and then catch the connecting local ferry across the estuary to get to the Victorian Seaside town. From there you can book a boat for some sea fishing, visit the theatre, the fairground, or one of the many shops and restaurants.

About Eloise

Our family has been close to this area for over 50 years - and very little has changed in all that time. It's where our best memories are of growing up by the seaside, exploring the hills and estuary, and playing on the long, safe and sandy beach.

Eloise purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Eloise chose Fairbourne

When it comes to this area, there are two types of people: those that have never been and have never heard of the area, and those that have been going there all their lives! Once discovered, you're certain to return :-)

What makes this bungalow unique

There are very few properties that are so close to the beach and also the mountains, whilst at the same time being situated in a quiet friendly Hamlet, yet with all conveniences within a short distance.

Quiet, relaxing, and stunning scenery

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A well equipped, clean and homely bungalow with the great addition of a hot tub to relax in whatever the weather. With a range of games, books, music and T.V. etc there is something for everyone to enjoy when not exploring the local area. The beach was wonderful and quiet with great views out to sea.

Fantastic location. Great for beach lazing and hill climbing.

  • 5 of 5

After much research, settled upon this cottage and was not disappointed. It proved a very comfortable base for our exploration of the local area. We had grand plans of visiting further into Snowdonia National Park, but in the end found that the whole families’ needs were catered for within walking distance or a short drive away. Our hosts were extremely helpful and all questions and queries were quickly answered. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property the last week of June and had a fabulous stay, lovely bungalow, great location, quite and relaxing. Weather was wonderful I spent the time on the top part of the garden when we were not there......... sunbathing listening to the birds... just bliss. If you want a quite holiday this is the location, we discovered the blue lake, beach is within walking distance, and found a great pub by the estuary, short drive into Barmouth, and Talybont ....played music on the record player .... so relaxing I didn't want to come home, added bonus was the hot tub and prosecco in the fridge, great find ! book you will not be disappointed !

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning cottage, with lovely views. Everything you could want (and more) was in the cottage. Although we only used it a couple of times, the hottub was fantastic and the bottle of Prosecco that the owners left was a lovely touch. The garden is completely enclosed and secure which was fantastic for our dog. The cottage is a great base for touring the area and we will definately be back!

Good location, nice place , great weather

  • 4 of 5

Second visit to the cottage. Good space for us. 2 adults 2 Labradors.

The back garden is fully enclosed with a hot tub on the top terrace along with bbq and a sea view.

The location is 5 minutes walk from the beach which is massive and the majority dog friendly. There are some excellent walks in the surrounding area. All of which were in the 2 books provided in the cottage. We ate out at the George 3rd and propergander. Both nice. George 3rd is dog friendly too. The remaining time weBBq’d as the weather was great.

Watch out fore horse flies on your walks and check your dogs for ticks...there are a lot about.

Great location. Would recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your bungalow, and did not want to leave.

The location was ideal for walking and exploring the local area, and excellent to tour all the places of interest. we would certainly return as there is still plenty of places to visit.
