About Braich MelynA perfect country cottage full of original beams and an inglenook fireplace, set in green farmland.
Brimming with character Braich Melyn is the perfect country cottage stay. It has many traditional features including an inglenook fireplace giving the cottage a real sense of historic charm. The cottage dates from the 17th-century and its attached barns are still intact, as is the hill farm it’s based on. You will be encompassed by green farmland, grazing livestock and unrivalled views across the valley.
Rise early and head out into the heart of Snowdonia. One of the highlights is Rhaeadr Ddu, one of the most dramatic waterfalls in Wales and just a 20-minute drive from here.
Mountain bikers will enjoy the trail at Coed y Brenin, 16 miles away, while those more akin to a slower pace can try the nearby Mawddach Trail which runs along an old railway line. The market town of Dolgellau is just a 15-minute drive, where you’ll be able to pick up the walking trail for Cader Idris.

Notes for guests
Access: The accessibility guide is for guidance only. For up to date photos, please see the images on the webpage.
Heating: Electric wall panel heating included.
Parking: A fenced parking area is provided for 2 cars.
Garden: There is a small enclosed garden.
Offers: Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 12pm at this cottage.
Access: is through the gate and up the field for approximately 275 meters where livestock graze, so visitors should be reasonably fit and active. The field is unlit so visitors are advised to arrive in daylight and bring a torch with them. Good footwear is advisable.
Due to the walk to the cottage and the stone floors, this cottage may not be suitable for very young children.
The cottage has a private water supply so in prolonged dry spells and in very hot weather, we would politely ask that water is used sparingly wherever possible.
Television: A TV and DVD player are provided but there is no TV reception so guests may wish to bring their own DVDs.
Layout: The double and twin bedrooms are interconnecting. The twin room is very small, one of the beds is 5'6' long and the other is 5' long (instead of the standard 6' long).
