About the neighbourhood
Bod Idris is ideally located on the outskirts of Barmouth. As such it avoids the noise of the town but benefits from easy access to both the town, the countryside and walks on foot from the house over the mountains or across the famous railway bridge. Parking is available in a layby on the opposite side of the road In season overnight parking (6pm - 8 am) is allowed on single yellow lines on the road outside the house. A private car park available for public use - subject to a small fee is within 150m of the property. Accommodation is to a high modern standard and often commented on by guests - one child even suggesting it was better than home ! A sandy beach below the house provides for endless enjoyment Originally a private hotel, Bod Idris has been extensively refurbished throughout...
