About the Cottage


Gwynfa Bach really is ‘something special’ a fabulous rural retreat with a woodburner in the main living room, enjoying stunning views overlooking a stream plus the hills in the foreground.  Pet free and smoke free!

It was originally a 19C slate workers cottage and oozes rustic character.  Sleeping 5 guests in 2 bedrooms.  In a fab location in Abergynolwyn Village, with the Railway Inn just a stones throw.  Set in the Snowdonia National Park, it’s close to Cader Idris & the Cambrian Coast with its sweeping sand beaches. Miles of stunning coastal & hillside walks await you and only a few miles from the local towns of Tywyn & Dolgellau, with all their amenities

Gwynfa Bach has just been converted and tastefully renovated to a very high standard, whilst retaining many character features along with the comforts of modern living, including ECO electric heating and double glazing. FREE WIFI of course!  There is adequate parking outside and in the village car park.


The cottage is set in a quiet lane, within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and is surrounded by spectacular scenery, the front patio area is enclosed and West facing, which benefits from the sun nearly all day & evening. There is garden furniture & a BBQ for the guests to use.  Guests will enjoy listening to the water flowing.  Just lovely after a long trek!.
