    ViewRanger

    Posted on October 11, 2018 by in Barmouth, Things to do, Walks

    ViewRanger is a mapping app. Is it the mapping app that Google is to search? I will leave that for you to decide. It’s a good one, even at the basic account level which is free. In their own words: “ViewRanger is your digital guide to the outdoors with downloadable route guides, outdoor maps, and […]

    The Bronze Bell Shipwreck

    Posted on October 2, 2018 by in Barmouth, Things to do

    The Bronze Bell (or Tal-y-Bont) wreck lies to the south of the Sarn Badrig Reef (St. Partick’s Causeway) between Barmouth and Harlech in Cardigan Bay.

    Barmouth SUP

    Posted on September 29, 2018 by in Barmouth, Sea, Things to do

    SUP is an acronym for stand up paddle boarding and is now one of the most common water sports undertaken in the UK. The waters around Barmouth are ideal for paddle boarding as they are relatively calm, but you do need to know your local tides and ebbs and flows which are relatively dangerous for […]

    Barmouth Heritage Trail

    Posted on March 29, 2017 by in Barmouth, Things to do

    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 […]
