Bryngwyn is a beautiful farmhouse, in the most stunning setting. The spacious guest room overlooks the large garden and has its own WC/shower room, radio and tea & coffee making facilities. There is ample parking and a garage for bikes.
Bryngwyn is a seventeenth-century farmhouse in several acres of wild garden with a lovely inglenook fireplace and a number of outside seating areas. The spacious guest room is in a later addition with views over the large garden and up to high hills dotted with bronze and iron-age remains. It has its own shower-room and WC, radio, tea and coffee facilities, safe parking and a large secure garage for bikes.
The house is only two miles from the sea and lies close to the foot of Bird Rock and Cadair Idris. We are only six miles from Tywyn with its world-famous preserved railway, good supermarkets, leisure centre, pool and a great independent cinema, The Magic Lantern.
Four miles of perfect sandy beaches offer good bathing, easy walking, kite surfing, watersports and golf at the famous links in Aberdyfi.
There are inspiring walks direct from the house, some low-level leading to the thirteenth-century Castell-y-Bere, others more demanding onto high moorland and on to Cadair Idris itself.
We are twenty-minutes from Tal-y-Llyn, thirty from Dolgellau and Machynlleth and fifteen from Aberdyfi where there are good pubs, restaurants and cafes. Aberystwyth is fifty-minutes South and The Centre for Alternative Technology is forty minutes away.
A continental breakfast of cereal, toast, local eggs and a selection of preserves together with tea and fresh coffee is served from 8.00 till 9.30 am.
Access to the guest rooms can be through a private rear door.
Interaction with guests
I have lived in Llanegryn for thirty years and was a very active mountaineer, rock-climber and walker both here and abroad. I have an intimate knowledge of the area and a deep love of this particular valley.
Other things to note
This is a bookish house with a good library which I'm more than happy to share with guests.
An extra guest room is available by arrangement for £45 per night (max 2 persons).
I hope guests will make themselves at home and to take advantage of the house, small library, large garden, wonderful spring water and, in winter, the open fires.
I came to Wales from London thirty years ago to climb a mountain, fell in love with this valley and I've lived here ever since. I have been a teacher but now work as a freelance screenwriter and playwright. I get enormous pleasure and satisfaction from sharing my love of this area, of books, plays and music.
