About the Cottage

Lounge Holidays is thrilled to offer, Afon Morfa.

The cottage has a sunny, north-west facing garden to soak up the rays and enjoy the stunning sunsets.

The stunning Mawddach Estuary is opposite, facing Barmouth and the Cader Idris mountain area is just a short drive. Much of the 10 acres of grounds are wild woodland sloping steeply to the main road.
