About the Cottage

FANTASIC Views ! This stunning holiday home 5/6 bed, 4 bath, sleeps 9-12, sea facing veranda & terrace, FAB views!

Lounge Holidays are thrilled to offer this really special, coastal view, large family holiday home. Goronyw Cottage, ‘on The Rock’ in Barmouth has it all?  This gorgeous grade 2 listed property has many original features, including a splendid inglenook fireplace with big wood burner, slate flag & stripped pine flooring and Georgian sash windows with wooden shutters. The West facing period veranda and large sun decked terrace provide stunning coastal views. There are 5/6 bedrooms and 4 bathroom in this traditional stone built cottage. Newly decorated in 2015 and with mainly new furniture, this fabulous property sleeps 10-12 guest.  WIFI of course.

Miles of sweeping sandy beaches and stunning walks are just a stone’s throw from the cottage. As well as a fantastic location with views of the Harbour, Beach, The Mawddach Estuary and The Llyn Peninsula, this home is only a 2 minutes’ walk to Barmouth town centre with its shops and good pubs/eateries.   The cottage is situated on The Rock, accessed via 42 medieval stone steps off the main street near the harbour, so it’s not suitable for guests with mobility issues. The steps are not particularly steep and it only take a minute to walk up to the property, any reasonably active person, of any age will not have a problem.  There is no designated parking, but guests have two parking permit for the main car park 400m away at no extra cost to you.

From the lounge, kitchen & dining room & the main bedrooms, plus the veranda & terrace you can watch the waves roll in and experience spectacular sunsets over the bay. With our west facing holiday cottage, you could be soaking up the sun all day long then enjoying dining Al-Fresco on the lovely terrace while watching the sun set over Cardigan Bay, with the mountains as a backdrop.

Surrounded by The Snowdonia National Park, Goronwy Cottage is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you want. For those with families, miles of sweeping sandy beaches await you.  If you're into cycling or horse riding, there are numerous scenic places to ride. This is a walker paradise with The Mawddach & Dyffryn Trail very close and Cader Idris just a 20 minutes' drive away! If you're not the active type, then how about a ride on the Cambrian Coast Express all the way along this glorious coast line.

"Trains and buses 5 minutes away allowed spectacular linear walks along the coast and Mawdach estuary. To arrive back at Goronwy with its comfy beds, great sea views and tasteful decor is a delight. Everything on the doorstep. Looking forward to our next visit."

"Really is the best, beautifully furnished. Very large with lovey en suite rooms. Great views from the porch seating area and even better from the separate sun terrace."
