    Barmouth Heritage Trail

    Posted on March 29, 2017 by in Uncategorized

    The Barmouth Heritage Trail was launched in early 2014. The website contains a wealth of information and history about Barmouth, particularly the old town that predates the 1870s building of Penbryn Mynach (formerly Bryn Mynach). However, the trail has only recently fulfilled its potential with the upgrading of the mobile networks in the Barmouth area […]

    Llanfair Caverns & Farm Park

    Posted on August 10, 2015 by in Things to do

    Llanfair Caverns & Farm Park is about eight miles north of Barmouth, including the drive along the fantastic coastal road that heads north. The farm park is really friendly. We are lucky enough (?!) to have 3 and 5 year olds and the farm park always makes them happy. It’s currently £21 for a family […]

    Welsh Highland Railway

    Posted on August 5, 2015 by in Things to do

    Over the last few years since buying Penbryn Mynach, we haven’t got out much in the local area other than walking the hills near to Barmouth! Too busy at Penbryn Mynach. But, on our holiday last week at Dyffryn Seaside Estate, we took the opportunity to enjoy ourselves. Firstly, we had a lovely afternoon in […]

    We’re all going on the teaser walk

    Posted on June 23, 2014 by in Barmouth, Things to do, Walks

    I am often extolling to guests the virtues of a quick walk up to the memorial flag that can be seen from the garden and hill facing windows of Penbryn Mynach. We call it the teaser walk as it’s quite short (about an hour at pace) and easy, yet is a good introduction to hill […]

    New patio

    Posted on April 16, 2014 by in Facilities

    We are very excited to have finished upgrading our patio just in time for Easter guests. For those that have been before it is located just outside the kitchen door and for once I remembered to take a “before” picture prior to work commencing. So this post shows an after pic, a before pic and […]

  • Winter Works

    Posted on February 28, 2014 by in Facilities

    It’s been a busy off season making good and replacing, cleaning, and preparing for the coming season. Christmas and New Year guests had good weeks but also had the Barmouth flooding on Friday, 3rd January. We then had an empty January and lots of short breaks in February. It’s hard to remember what we have […]

    Mid Wales Tourism and Business Conference 2013

    Posted on December 5, 2013 by in Uncategorized

    On 7th November I attended the well organised and interesting Mid Wales Tourism (MWT) conference at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) near Machynlleth. Here is a picture of me at the conference talking with Rachel Tindall who provides very peaceful and high up in the hills accommodation near Aberystwyth called Tanyresgair. At the time […]

    Ynys y Brawd

    Posted on November 9, 2013 by in Barmouth, Sea

    I have often wondered how Barmouth beach is so large and wondered at its natural beauty. Expecially the vast quantities of the beautiful sand. But I have now learned that the vast size is a relatively recent phenomenon and not so natural. At the entrance to the Mawddach estuary, just in front of the southern […]
