The Details

Sleeping up to 6 guests, Ffald y Bryn is a rustic and beautifully decorated cottage set high on the serene Pen-y-Bryn valley. With footpaths leading directly out from the property, you can fall out of bed straight into the glorious Welsh National Park. Fern filled copses and bracken laden paths meander across the foothills of The Snowdonia National Park, and Ffald y bryn makes you feel as though you have been transported to The Shire.

Inside, you will find a number of creature comforts - log burner, open fire, sofas and a collection of books and games. However, with no Wi-Fi, landline or televisions - this IS the 'Off-The-Grid' experience many of us nostalgically prescribe to remedy our overloaded tech-ridden lives. Are you brave enough to put that theory to the test?  

Upstairs there are four bedrooms sleeping up to six guests. A charming four post king size bed, two double bedrooms, and a twin room comprise the sleeping accommodation. There will be no squabbling over rooms, as each and every bedroom is sumptuous, cosy and has stunning views out onto the fields and valley below. Two bathrooms are available for you and your guests, with hot water that should be best rationed!  

This former sheephold on the hill, is secluded, charming and will not fail in allowing all of your guests to completely switch off. There are some beautiful walks out onto the top of the valley, and Barmouth and Dolgellau are reassuringly close - a 15 minute drive, should you crave some essentials and human contact. The chippy in Barmouth, The Mermaid, is tried and tested by Unique Holiday Stays, as is the nearby Mawdacch Pizza. 

Potential guests are strongly encouraged to contact Unique Holiday Stays for further information, details and the many activities on offer locally. 

Ffald y Bryn will book out quickly for 2023, don't miss out on this most unique of stays. Enquire today!


Important Property Notes

Ffald y Bryn is remote and guests will require a car to access the property via a shared access gravel track. Vehicles with low clearance from the front bumper may struggle up the track. 

Ffald y Bryn is 'off grid'. There is no landline and no broadband or WiFi. There is phone signal available and 4G obtainable in some of the rooms (kitchen, bathroom, double bedroom). 

No television is provided. There are plenty of books and board games for evenings.

Water is sourced from the stream and NOT from a mains water supply.

Hot water for one of the bathrooms is heated via the back burner on the log burner. i.e. in order to have warm water for that room, you must have the stove lit. There are no walk in showers. 

The power is provided from a solar panel battery system. Power is at a premium. There is enough to charge mobile phones and lighting etc.

We estimate a 20 minute walk from the property down the valley to the A346 and the bus stop, where buses run between Barmouth and Dolgellau.

No dogs permitted
