Welcome to Abergwynant Farm


Established in 1956, we offer six self catering properties on a mixed farm of 800 acres within Snowdonia National Park extending from the marshland of the stunning Mawddach estuary to the foothills of the Cadar Idris. Five minutes walk away along a woodland path is the disused railway line, now known as the Mawddach Trail, a very popular public footpath and a bird watchers paradise. This old line is now part of the National Cycle Network. All are within a very short distance of Abergwynant Farm. We believe our holiday cottages are the closest to the Mawddach estuary and trail. 

The farm, which is organic, covers four areas of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), one being a European SSSI.
Abergwynant also makes an excellent base from which to pursue mountain biking at the nearby  
Coed-y-Brenin Centre.


An ideal location for cycling & walking. A five minute walk from the farm, down a woodland path, is the renowned Mawddach Trail. This very popular footpath is also part of the National Cycle Network (Cycle Route 8 - Mawddach Trail and the longer Route 82). It featured recently on a BBC tv programme, Railway Walks with Julia Bradbury, which has now been released on DVD.  (Railway Walk from Dollgellau to Barmouth)
Another spectacular walk from the farm to Creggenan Lake with views towards Barmouth and the Mawddach estuary.
The farm is approximately ten minutes to sandy beaches and golf courses.

In the world of today with all the stress and pressures of modern living there are few holidays more relaxing than a get-away-from-it-all rural retreat in Wales. In the beautiful Gwynant River Valley, it is an ideal location for enjoying the beauty of North Wales. Nestling in a suntrap, amidst meadows and mountains, Abergwynant Farm has been lovingly converted into a holiday centre, providing many activities and opportunities to see the most beautiful aspects of our British countryside.

A fifteen minute car journey brings visitors to within reach of Cader Idris mountain. There are numerous beautiful walks and the mountain offers an easy scramble to more difficult climbs. Sightseeing by car leads to the most spectacular views around every turn of the road.

All fishermen seek both peace and quiet and good fishing from the calm of Abergwynant Farm. The farm owns fishing rights for both banks of the Gwynant River for approximately one mile and 'Day Tickets' are available for salmon and trout fishing. Lake and sea fishing are readily available in the locality.

Visitors keen on active sports can swim in the sea at nearby Fairbourne and enjoy the miles of un-crowded sandy beaches. In bad weather you can take a dip in the swimming pools at nearby Tywyn,  Bala and Harlech.

Alternatively stay in and around Abergwynant Farm for a really peaceful and restful holiday and enjoy the scenic surroundings.
