Had a great time with a few friends enjoying the beautiful scenery and this amazing place. Lots of space and everything you would need to for a weekend away.

Excellent holiday house with lovely views over Cadair Idris and 30mins to the Beach. We had a great week staying at Y Bryn and the house could have easily been a 5 star. Slightly let down by the dirty cups, plates, cooker and grill pan...More

Additional amenities & feature info
This is a detached property with no expense spared to give the holiday maker every luxury that they need from a 50 inch plasma screen with Sky TV, DVD Player and Wii game, this holiday home has it all. The house is fully underfloor heated throughout and has a large patio with an amazing bushman burner chiminea (which is hand made from clay and never gets too hot to touch) for those cool summer evenings when a roaring log fire is a must outside. The views here are stunning with nothing blocking your views across the Cader Idris Mountain Range. Just sitting on the patio and taking in the view is a holiday in itself.
