About the Cottage

Bronhaul is a charming 2 bedroom, 19th century terraced cottage with a very authentic rustic feel, enjoying lovely rural and mountain views in a historic Welsh Village location and just a short walk to the excellent ‘Riverside Inn’ pub/eatery in Pennal.  This delightful stone cottage has recently been refurbished and tastefully decorated to a very high standard, whilst retaining many historic character features, along with all the comforts of modern living including ECO electric heaters in all rooms, WiFi and a wood burner.

Bronhaul offers an open plan living/dining area and separate kitchen fitted with modern appliances. The cosy sitting area has a log burner for winter nights by the fireside.  This cottage can sleep four: it has two double bedrooms. To the rear there is a lovely garden and terrace area, with BBQ and patio furniture for alfresco living.  Fabulous views with hilly backdrop.

Set in The Snowdonia National Park, the village of Pennal is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you want.  For those with families, sweeping sandy beaches can be found in Tywyn or Aberdovey.  If you are into cycling or horse riding, there are numerous scenic places to ride. This is a walker’s paradise with numerous walks on the doorstep. If you are not the active type, then how about a ride on the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway in Tywyn?

Come and explore this amazing area.  Mid Wales is truly stunning and a 'well-kept secret' by discerning globe trotters.  Come prepared for all conditions, it does rain sometimes!
