Description

This four-storey, terraced holiday home in the centre of Barmouth has been beautifully restored and now offers a light, bright and spacious place to enjoy this popular seaside resort and all the scenic beauty of the Cambrian Coast. The main living room is on the ground floor, next to a lovely second living room/playroom equipped with toys and games. Downstairs on the lower ground floor is the stunning kitchen/dining room with French doors opening out onto the rear courtyard, whilst the first and second floors are occupied by the bedrooms. You’re within a few minutes’ walk of the town centre where you’ll find a wide range of shops and eateries, plus the gorgeous sandy beach which stretches for miles is a short distance further. Within 50 yards you can pick up the mountain walk which gives incredible views of the sea, Barmouth town and harbour, the estuary and mountains beyond. Coed y Brenin is great for mountain biking or why not hire a bike and explore the Mawddach Trail, a level walking and cycle route that crosses the famous Barmouth Bridge and follows the old railway line to Dolgellau? Here you can stop off at a pub en-route or wander round Dolgellau, with its fascinating collection of individual shops and coffee shops. Or you can hop on the Cambrian Coastline train for one of the most scenic railway journey’s in Britain. If you would like to bring your own bikes there is a space in the utility room to store them.
To the south, there are horse riding facilities at Fairbourne Beach and the little village of Llwyngwril, known for its annual Yarnbombing Festival, and Tywyn, home to the Talyllyn Railway where you can experience a magical journey on a narrow gauge steam train up into the hills with waterfalls and footpaths at Dolgoch and Nant Gwernol. Northwards you’ll find a long stretch of sandy beaches at Morfa Dyffryn and Traeth Benar, and then you reach Harlech with its majestic Edward I castle brooding over the town (it’s a World Heritage Site). Beyond here is Porthmadog, home to the famous Ffestiniog Railway, the Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams Ellis, and Blaenau Ffestiniog, home to the amazing Zip World, providing both the largest zip wire zone in the world, and Bounce Below, the only place where you can bounce on trampoline nets deep underground in an old slate cavern. Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
