Welcome to Brynygwin Country House & Cottages in Snowdonia.

Geographically, Brynygwin Self Catering Country House & Cottages could hardly be better located. Situated close to the Snowdonia Natonal Park in a completely rural setting with 5 acres of mature informal garden full of colourful shrubs and fine trees, fields to either side, 15 acres of woodland above, and a river for fishing just across the little road hidden below. Yet, nestling way down beneath the mass of Cadair Idris (the 8-mile-long, 9-peak-high mountain range flanking Snowdonia’s scenic Mawddach estuary), it stands just one level mile west of the market town of Dolgellau and east of the picturesque estuary-head village of Penmaenpool, both accessible by road or trail.

Brynygwin’s position in relation to Cadair’s four easternmost peaks including Penygadair, the summit, which is second from the right. Cadair, to many, is as impressive as Snowdon 30 miles to the north – and can be enjoyed without all those crowds!

Historically, the house, with its service buildings (now cottages), was built 1803 – 1810 in the then fashionable neo-classical styles by the present owner’s 3xgreat-grandfather for his family. His son added the armorial stained glass window as a record, in striking colour, of the family’s links to equally colourful characters like Harry Hotspur, Lady Jane Grey, and the Mitfords. These links and more would be gladly explained!

Practically, Brynygwin proves designer-suited for holidays away from modernity, rush and noise. Cars can park alongside their accommodation. Children and dogs can be safe in the enclosed cottage gardens, or free in the wider grounds. Wildlife lovers can enjoy birds, bats, badgers, and wild flowers. Fishermen can use our 100 metres of private riverbank and free permit to all the Dolgellau Angling Association waters. Walkers can set out in any direction with one of the many guidesheets provided. Mountain-bikers, narrow-gauge railway riders and castle connoisseurs find themselves ringed round with choice for their chosen pursuits.
