Twr Mynach, our next door neighbour, has just reopened (summer 2020) as a guest house run by hosts Henrietta (Henri) and Pavlos. Henri and Pavlos purchased the property in February 2019 from long time owner Iorwerth Gruffudd-Jones who also sold Penbryn Mynach to ourselves in 2012. Their story is best told in their own words […]Continue Reading...
I am clearing out the old Penbryn Mynach Holiday Cottage google plus page. As with other google plus pages it disappears on April 2nd and content needs retaining by 31st March. Nearby beautiful village Llwyngwril, where we holidayed in 2014, used to host a copy of the leaflet South Merioneth Church Trail. I used the […]
It is with some sadness, on our part, that Iorwerth left for pastures new last Thursday. Now 87, Iorwerth left Barmouth for Ruthin to be nearer children and grandchildren.

I sat in a small queue yesterday at the temporary traffic lights, doing some consumer testing for the summer. There are about 200 yards of road to complete and I thought there would be a tiny chance that on Saturdays throughout the summer there would be no lights. But apparently not, the lights are scheduled […]Continue Reading...

It was a long journey to Barmouth today. My fault. I decided to travel via a northern route to see the snow before it disappeared. I must have missed the first road ahead shut signs but having gone so far from Knockin on the B4396/B4391 aiming for Bala, I decided to ignore the road ahead […]
