WELCOME TO BRYNYGWIN

Country House & Cottages

A history That Dates Back To 1803

Geographically, Brynygwin Self Catering Country House & Cottages could hardly be better located. Safely within the Snowdonia National Park, it enjoys a completely rural setting with 5 acres of mature informal garden full of colourful shrubs and fine trees, fields to either side, 15 acres of woodland above, and a river for fishing just across the little road hidden below. Yet, nestling way down beneath the mass of Cadair Idris (the 8-mile-long, 9-peak-high mountain range flanking Snowdonia’s scenic Mawddach estuary), it stands just one level mile west of the market town of Dolgellau and east of the picturesque estuary-head village of Penmaenpool, both accessible by road or trail.

HISTORICALLY

The house, with its service buildings (now cottages), was built 1803 – 1810 in the then fashionable neo-classical styles by the present owner’s 3 x great-grandfather for his family. His son added the armorial stained glass window (1st in the gallery of pictures below) as a record, in striking colour, of the family’s links to equally colourful characters like Harry Hotspur, Lady Jane Grey, and the Mitfords. These links and more would be gladly explained!

PRACTICALLY

Brynygwin proves designer-suited for holidays away from modernity, rush and noise. Cars can park alongside their accommodation. Children and dogs can be safe in the enclosed cottage gardens, or free in the wider grounds. Wildlife lovers can enjoy birds, bats, badgers, and wild flowers. Fishermen can use our 100 metres of private riverbank and free permit to all the Dolgellau Angling Association waters. Walkers can set out in any direction with one of the many guide sheets provided. Mountain-bikers, narrow-gauge railway riders and castle connoisseurs find themselves ringed round with choice for their chosen pursuits.

COTTAGES

The two holiday cottages are next door to each other as are the two flats in the house which is separated from the cottages by just a narrow pathway. So either pair taken together allow their guests to be separate yet together, and sometimes people take all four places (maximum sleeping 26). The aerial photo of Brynygwin’s layout with its identifying arrows shows how conveniently close the four lets are to each other.
