Self Catering Accommodation near Dolgellau in the Snowdonia National Park....

The Area

Braich-y-Ceunant is on the outskirts of the village of Brithdir, 2 miles east of Dolgellau, the former County Town of Meirionnydd. It is fine walking country, with Cader Idris to the South, the Arans to the East and the Rhinogion to the North. There are numerous scenic walks in the area with the famous Torrent Walk 1/4 mile away. Brithdir has no shops and it is a 20 minutes walk to the nearest pub, but there are 2 chapels and a church that must be unique in Great Britain, for it is modeled on an Italian country church, with interiors decoration inspired by the Arts and Craft Movement: it is a Grade 1 listed building.


Dolgellau is a typical small Welsh market town. It has a fine square and many interesting byways, good restaurants and comfortable pubs, a variety of shops and a tourist office. Livestock markets are held on Mondays and Fridays.



Barmouth, at the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary, with its seaside town attractions, excellent sea fishing, yacht moorings and small craft launching sites, is 10 miles West of Dolgellau along what, in John Ruskin's opinion, is the second finest scenic road in Europe; the finest being the road from Barmouth back to Dolgellau.



Harlech, 11 miles beyond Barmouth, is renowned for its castle and the Royal St. Davids golf links.




Bala Lake

Bala Lake (15m) is a popular canoeing, dinghy sailing and windsurfing centre. Bala is a pretty town, its wide main street having a variety of architectural styles, good shops, cafes and pubs. In particular Bala is home to the best sausages in the UK.


Fishing. Game Fishing can be had in local rivers and lakes and good sea angling, whether from the shore or from charter boats, can be enjoyed at Barmouth.

Golf. There are 7 golf courses within 20 miles, ranging from fine links courses at Harlech and Aberdovey, to interesting mountain courses.
