Cute Bungalow Walking Distance From The Beach | Bryn-Yr-Aur

Pet FriendlyNear BeachReal Fire

Bryn-Yr-Aur is a cute bungalow walking distance from the beach in Llanfair, near Harlech. This three bedroom cottage which can sleep up to six people has that real unpretentious home from home feel to it and provides a great base for families or friends wanting that traditional sea side holiday. A big lawned garden with lots of hidden seating in quiet corners is another real plus in this one.

A modern kitchen houses a traditional gas hob and eye level oven under a white worktop. The dining area at the far end is a little smaller but, like the rest of the cottage, there are some lovely personal touches such as the hand painted dining chairs and home made seat covers.

A fantastic log burner takes centre stage in the adjoining lounge. Opposite, a large south facing picture window commands a fantastic view down to the beaches of Shell Island. An eclectic mix of ornaments and furniture ensures that the relaxed and homely feel prevails.

Two bathrooms, one with just a WC and washbasin and a second with a shower over bath arrangement plus washbasin. Finally, we have two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. All on the ground floor of course. All of the bedrooms are nice and bright and include individual and carefully chosen pieces of bedroom furniture.

Floor Plans




The cottage is surrounded on three sides by big lawned areas of grass. So plenty of places for you to sunbath throughout the day. There are lots of hidden seats and benches dotted around in shady corners if you want to escape the mid day sun however. The village of Llanfair is very quiet but has a fantastic and quiet sandy beach at the bottom of what is know locally as the zig zag path.

Harlech, about a mile north, is slightly busier. There are a couple of really nice cafes in town two, a couple of pubs and a couple of restaurants to choose from and the world famous castle is a must see of course. The Harlech Royal St David’s links golf course is world-renowned and must have some of the prettiest views of any course in the country.

About 20 minutes to the North, the larger harbour town of Porthmadog has a bigger selection of shops including some larger supermarkets. While the ever-popular seaside resort of Barmouth, 15 minutes to the south has plenty of pubs and traditional seaside fair. Mount Snowdon is about 30 minutes away in the car but I would encourage guests to discover the less well-trodden hills and mountains that rise up just behind the cottage.

Everything we needed .

Gill Riley

Bryn Yr Aur was great for our stay. Perfect position for beaches, lovely views and within walking distance of Harlech. The property was spacious and comfortable, the gardens suitable for dogs, plus lots of off road parking.
Meg welcomed us with a gift voucher to spend in Y Groser Harlech, which was so kind and generous, we treated ourselves to some delicious Welsh produce with it. Thanks again Meg! We would definitely return to this lovely cottage.

We have just enjoyed a week at Bryn-yr-Ayr. The location of the cottage is stunning with sea views from several rooms and the garden. Watching the sunset from the seating area in the garden was breathtaking. The beach and Harlech are a short walk from the cottage. The large enclosed garden was excellent for our boys to play football and run around. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and thank Meg for her thoughtful text to check everything was ok and the delicious cake left for us.

Emma Davies

This cottage exceeded our expectations. We were very lucky with the weather, which helped us enjoy the (3) gardens. The cottage is clean, spacious and comfortable. The views from all the windows were beautiful and eating outside in the evening sun was lovely. There was also secure storage for our bikes.
The walk to the beach was a bit longer and steeper than expected but so worth it.
We will be booking again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Ursula Roberts

Lovely cosy cottage with all you need. Beautiful views all around. Beach is stunning and unspoilt. Very safe for children. The path to walk to the beach is very steep so not for everyone, but it’s only a very short drive to the car park. Lovely holiday place.

We had a great week staying at Bryn-Yr-Aur. Such a homely cottage, plenty of room for us all, well appointed kitchen, the garage/ utility space was great extra space for beach things, foot wear etc. With having 2 teenagers having good WiFi was a must & we didn’t experience any issues. The large gardens had all day sun, great secure space for our dog, felt very private, fixed seating to enjoy the views, big outdoor table with seating we ate most of our meals from with fantastic views. In walking distance less than 1km to a very quiet beach, down a steep path, great for our older kids, and to take the dog for walks. A lovely walk to Harlech, with the castle, few shops, cafes. We also walk out of the village towards the hills behind, again beautiful views & so quiet. The weather was hot while we were there, so didn’t venture too far from the cottage, local beach & surrounding area, but as it’s in such a beautiful location it worked for us. We would return sometime…hopefully in near future. Meg messaged us pre arrival, to let us know if needed anything to let her know.

Dawn Peel

Excellent location, views from all 3 of the spacious bedrooms as well as both aspects from the lounge. Various fixed seating to allow you to find a sunny or shady spot. Ideal for watching the stunning sunsets over the headland.
Large garden for our dogs to play in and secure enough for our Collie dogs, although smaller more inquisitive doggies may find a gap or two to squeeze through. Lovely kitchen too. I needed to ask the owner a question and received a speedy response. Lots of places to walk (some quite steep walks), we didn’t need to use our car at all during our stay.


Just wanted to say we had a fabulous week at this cottage. Very clean, spacious and well equipped. Great location for exploring and it has beautiful views from the garden. Hope to visit again sometime. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Andrea Egan

Just returned from a wonderful much needed family holiday. The cottage was clean, spacious and comfortable with everything included that we could have thought of. The garden was fabulous. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed herself. The garage/shed was a welcome bonus. Ample car parking space for two large cars. The views were to die for. Unbelievable. Sun in the garden all day. Had bbq several nights watching the sun go down. Walk into Harlech was lovely with coffee and cakes on arrival. We were so lucky with the weather, we went to Barmouth beach, Criccieth, Borth Y Gest, Portmerion to name a few.
Meg was a great host and always available if needed via phone. She txt us on the morning of our arrival with a welcome message. Thank you. Would love to come again.

Maureen Kelly

We had a wonderful week, bbq nearly every evening finished with a leisurely stroll to Harlech, the weather was very kind which made the best of the garden and views, we found the bungalow comfortable and spacious. The surrounding beaches are fabulous for dog walking it is one of our favourite areas in north Wales. Thank you Meg for the Welsh cakes and milk, and for being accommodating to our early arrival..we would like to return sometime.👍😃
