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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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).

Barry is a wonderful host, and his house is beautiful. Great location for people who want a quiet place to stay in a rural setting.

Five stars all the way. Barry is the perfect host and Bryn Gwyn the perfect house. Set in the stunning countryside of South Snowdonia, the house is wonderfully cosy and homely, welcoming, clean, beautifully decorated and is one of those places you just won't want to leave. Barry is a very generous, helpful and accommodating host. The room itself is decorated in calming, neutral tones which echo throughout the house. It is quiet, light and airy with views over the grounds. There are tea and coffee making facilities, as well as a few local books and traditional farmhouse style chairs in which to sit and read them. The shower room is scrupulously clean, functional and well designed. Barry makes many of his own additions to the breakfast table including delights such as homemade jam and marmalade, yoghurt, muesli and bread. There seems to be always something either cooking in, or boiling on the the magnificent yellow Aga. This is certainly a place you will want to keep all to yourself for your personal list of 'secret stays'. Don't forget to say hello to 'Hamish' when you leave!

A superb comfortable house in one of the most scenic parts of Wales. Barry was an excellent host who brought a warmth to our short visit. Breakfasts were fresh and tasty and just what was needed to set us up for the day.

Barry is a wonderful host with lots of knowledge about the area which was very useful. We had a warm welcome into his beautiful house and enjoyed our stay immensely. It is close to Tywyn and Aberdovey which had lovely fish and chips to have on the beach. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. Finally breakfast finished off a wonderful stay :D we would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful stay at Barry's home. Its a magical setting with wonderful fruit teas and gardens. The house is very comfortable, clean and welcoming. Our bedroom was beautiful, large and the bed comfy. The shower room was big, clean and the shower was great. It is a very quiet and relaxing location. Our breakfast of musli, homemade yoghurt, home grown figs, fresh berries, toast, croissants and fresh eggs, tea, coffee & juice was a feast to set us up for the day. We look forward to visiting again with the family. Great place to stay!

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.
