Traditional farmhouse accommodation in Eryri (Snowdonia) | Bryn-Weirglodd

Real Fire

Traditional farmhouse accommodation in one of the most beautiful valleys in Eryri. Bryn-Weirglodd offers a great combination of 5 star self catering set in a faultless tranquil location. Beautifully appointed bedrooms and comfortable living areas compliment a setting where walkers can head off straight from the front door whist beach lovers only have a short 10 minute drive down to the seaside villages of Criccieth or Porthmadog.

The large living room offers the best views of the surrounding area perhaps. The ubiquitous welsh mountain sheep graze in the foreground whilst the rolling hills of the valley frame your view down to the coast. Plenty of space and seating for a family get together and a lovely log fire to warm you in the evenings.

Next door we have a traditional country kitchen diner. Lots of modern appliances including a washing machine and a large fridge freezer as well as a handsome oak dining table and chairs. Again plenty of space and seating for the whole family. Finally on the ground floor we have a large twin bedroom. Actually, I’m wrong, this room has the best view from the large patio doors that lead out onto the garden. The en-suite bathroom in here is fully accessible and suitable for wheelchair users – in fact this holiday cottage is ideal if anyone in your party has a disability or any mobility issues. Which is great news as we don’t have enough properties which are wheelchair friendly.

Upstairs we have three more bedrooms. Two double rooms and one twin room. No, these bedrooms have the best view. I think. You tell me when you get there. There’s a nice family bathroom up here with a powerful modern shower over a bath.

Keen walkers may already be familiar with Cwmysdradllyn and Cwm Pennant they will bear testament to the fact that there really is no exaggeration when people describe these valleys as the most beautiful in Wales. An un-spoilt wilderness of towering peaks interweaved by crystal clear rivers and streams.

As well as the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia) the farmhouse is also ideally suited to explore the seaside villages of the Pen Llyn (Llyn Peninsula). Criccieth, 3 miles away, is one of those hidden gems of the North Wales coastline. It has, of course, its world famous ‘Cadwaladers’ ice cream and the usual cafés and fish and chip shops but, for a small village, it boast’s some really quite nice restaurants. The ever popular market town of Pwllheli and fashionable Abersoch are a little further along the coast. The nearest town with supermarket etc is Porthmadog, some 5 miles away.

Popular activities in the area include fishing, golf and pony trekking as well as the more extreme mountain biking, white water rafting and gorge walking.

We stayed here for Xmas and New year 2023.
When we arrived Medwen was there to greet us she had arranged a few disabled items to be dropped off for us to use during our stay. This was great and helped so much. Medwen couldn’t do enough to help and went above and beyond. This made a huge difference to our stay.
We all had a great time and will definitely be back. The cottage itself is so peaceful and surrounded by hills and sheep and lots of walks to do.

This is a great location, a comfortable cottage in a very quiet area. This is the place where you can sit down, relax and take it easy. A great welcome because the owner was preset.
Bryn-Weirglodd is in my top 5 to come back.

This is the second time we have been to this house and I had forgotten a little bit on how lovely and comfortable the inside of the house is. The house is ideally situated – very rural with lovely walks from outside the front door but close enough to Porthmadog for the shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and very much appreciated the thoughtful welcome pack. We definitely will go back even if the weather does not cooperates when we are there.

Spent another lovely week with friends at Bryn Weirglodd . As always there was a warm Welsh welcome in the cottage for despite Covid-19 rules the cottage was comfortable and homely. There were plenty of logs for the burner (and more supplied by the owners during the week as the weather got a little chilly, and as always a fantastic welcome basket of goodies from the area – fudge, beer, cakes and biscuits – the best we have had in any cottage we’ve stayed in!

As a permanent wheelchair user the facilities are very good. The downstairs bedroom is spacious and comfortable and with patio doors looking out over the hills and the views throughout the day are stunning, especially the sunsets. The wet-room is also roomy and has been planned out well.

Our thanks to Medwen who recommended the Y Sgwar restaurant in nearby Tremadog where we had a first class meal during the week.

From this rural location you are just about 10 minutes into Porthmadog, 15 from dreamy Portmeirion and 30 minutes from Caernarfon with its wonderful castle set into yet another breathtaking setting.

Throughout the holiday we felt safe – the cleanliness in the cottage was very good and the measures in place for safe cleaning and so forth well thought through.

I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking to explore this magical corner of North Wales and will be returning again before too long.

We have just had a wonderful week here. There is everything you need and more. Just open the door, enter and relax. The views are absolutely amazing and the museum just adds to the charm of the surroundings. For those of you that need to go out every day the best part is coming back. Our four year old grandson loved it, and we knew he was safe in the enclosed garden. Great for walking and twitchers will love the abundance of bird life. Buzzards were around most days as were the ravens and meadow pippets. If you want to just get away from it all then this is the place to head for, but please leave a week free for us as we will definitely be back.

We’ve stayed in Wales through Dioni (and others) many times. Dioni holiday homes never disappoint, BUT this was the best yet.
The kitchen is the best equipped I’ve ever come across, no need to pack that favourite knife or peeler! The whole house is bright and airy, the decor is fresh and clean. The furnishings are all in great condition and comfortable.
Our daughter quickly adopted the window seat, I preferred the winged leather chair and foot stool and hubby stretched out on the sofa.
The two Buzzards and majestically enormous Red Kite that politely danced from vantage point to point around the house each evening were a real bonus. Aside from the ever present and curious sheep we also saw a fox and rabbits.
Location wise, its 5 mins in the car back to the main roads so very convenient while having a sense of peaceful isolation.
The owners were great, Medwen messaged us a couple of times and was truly lovely.
If you want a lazy evening meal the chip shop in Tremadog is a must!
Would we book again? Yes, without hesitation.

We had a lovely short break in this beautiful house. It is a stunning place to stay and is equipped with everything you need. The Welcome Pack was full of traditional Welsh products – very thoughtful.
We have only positive things to say and might return one day in a different season. (We were here during Storm Dennis – it was very wet!)
Thank you Medwen.

In one word- amazing.
In two words- totally amazing.
Let’s use more words, shall we?
We (7 people, One is disabled) have been in Bryn Weirglodd in September for a week, and enjoyed every moment.
First of all, the cottage is big and incredibly beautiful. The area itself is lovely too, for the cottage is remote (but you can still reach to Porthmadog, the nearest town, in no time).
The owner left us everything we might need, and I mean EVERYTHING: from soap, towels, plates and WiFi connection (you have no signal in your phone this area), through binoculars, Wii, big TV and books, to wood for the fireplace, kitchen equipments and welsh traditional food (milk, bread, cakes, snacks…you name it. Everything is locally made). Just bring your own clothes and you will be fine.
Talking about the accessability, I can say only that the lower floor of the cottage was the most wheelchair friendly house that I have ever seen, even more than my own house. Roll-in shower, low sink, wide corridors and so on. All the so-called “accessible” hotels in Britain- watch and learn, folks.
The only disadvantage of the place (I have to find one, you see. If the place will become too popular, I won’t be able to book it for my next vacation!) is that the place is way too cozy. With big TV, fireplace, lovely lounge and comfortable armchairs, nobody in my family wanted to go outside and actually do stuff!
Our vacation was one week, which is definitely too short.

Highly recommended,
Meron Sheffer
