I think the cottage discription is very clear and precisely what it says.
We had a lovely stay, and really enjoyed our time in beautiful Wales.

Management response:

Thank you Nikky, glad you had a lovely time. We think the area is beautiful as well!

Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Brongelynen Cottage was a veritable find and well within budget. The 3 bedrooms were all very spacious and there is a very good electric shower in the large bathroom. Gareth's pictures do not do the cottage justice. It is just a 5 minute walk from the train station. There is just one pub in the village 'Ship Aground', a minute's walk from the cottage. The food is absolutely devine, you must book in advance to guarantee a table, it is very busy, the prices are excellent and the staff were all really great.
It rained alot and we were not really prepared, no umbrellas and no tumble dryer. We did manage to dry all the wet clothes over night on a clothes dryer infront of the storage heater which stays on in the living room. Gareth explained that the only village shop had recently closed, that really inhibited us as we thought we could get provisions easily from the next village, however, we had chosen not to drive and came by train. The trains were very infrequent and the bus service...

Management response:

Thank you for the very positive review, glad you enjoyed yourselves - despite the weather! You are right, there is more scope in the area if you had the car. Thanks again, Gareth.

About the neighbourhood
The village has an inn, called the 'Ship Aground', which serves meals and a motel/restaurant which also serves excellent food and take aways.
There is a footpath from the village to the foreshore of the Dwyryd estuary and Giftan island, which is only accessible at low tide. This is heaven for wading birds and other wildlife and is surrounded by the most magnificent views of the Snowdonia Mountains and across the estuary to Portmeirion village. In the mountains behind the village (the Rhinogau) are lovely walking countryside with ancient Drovers routes high in the mountains with elevated views of the coastline.

Barmouth and the wonderful Mawddach estuary is just 30min, Beddgelert Snowden village is also 30min drive. The famous Coed y Brenin mountain bike trails is 20min by car.
There is a bus service through the village by Arriva Wales.
The Cambrian Coast railway stops at the village and the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway narrow-gauge are nearby, with Porthmadog (5miles) the link between the two railways.
