Property type house

About the property

Welcome to Gold Mine country! Ty Mawr near Dolgellau is a former mine manager’s house and has been beautifully renovated by its owners to create a comfortable and fascinating holiday home. There are two sitting rooms and large bedrooms, so you’ll never feel cramped here. Even so, the temptation to get outside will surely prove too much! Ty Mawr is located just outside the small village of Bronaber, on the road to Dolgellau, with woodlands just waiting to be explored. This is wild Wales, an area of rugged mountains, windswept moorlands, open lakes and miles of forests that hide terrific walking and mountain bike trails. Coed-y-Brenin is a renowned mountain biking centre and is found nearby. Walkers will discover ancients routes into the little visited Rhinog mountains, or find steep wooded ravines with tumbling waterfalls, again less visited than those in the more northern reaches of Snowdonia.

The mountain town of Dolgellau, nestling at the foot of spectacular Cader Idris mountain, is a 15-minute drive away and boasts plenty of shops and places to eat and drink. North of here is Porthmadog, gateway to the Llyn Peninsula and the terminus of not one but three heritage railways.

Bedrooms: Four upstairs bedrooms. Three double bedrooms and a twin room. Cot and Highchair on request.

Bathrooms: Two Bathrooms. One Upstairs bathroom with bath, shower attachment over bath, loo and basin. One downstairs shower room with loo, sink and shower cubicle. There is also a separate loo on the upstairs landing.

Kitchen: Well equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge/freezer and microwave. Open plan dining area with seating for all guests.

Sitting Room: 2 sitting rooms. Comfortable seating for all guests, Large TV and wood burner in one room. In the second room there is a small sofa an armchair and a tv.

Dining: Dining is in the kitchen. There is a table and seating for guests.

Garden: The glorious Welsh outdoors is your garden! The forest and the trails that lead from the door at Ty Mawr is waiting to be explored either by foot or on bike! Please be careful in the surrounding area there are some drops and steep slopes as you might expect in a national park.

Heating: The house is central heated by an airsource heat pump. There is also a log burner in the sitting room.

Parking: There is private parking at the side of the house for many cars.
