Barmouth Self Catering for Twelve PENBRYN MYNACH HOLIDAY COTTAGE - BARMOUTH SELF CATERING·MONDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2017 Penbryn Mynach is available throughout the year for self catering holidays in Barmouth, including Christmas and New Year. Accommodating 12 in six double bedrooms, pricing varies with discounts available all year for smaller parties. Penbryn Mynach comprises a very spacious sitting room, separate dining room for 12, well equipped kitchen, conservatory, cloakroom/WC. Three double bedrooms with king-size beds, two with en-suites, three twin bedrooms, one with en-suite and one separate main bathroom/WC. Plus cot. It sits high up overlooking Wern Mynach on the northern edge of town, quiet but close enough to town to walk quickly if you choose. Vicky and Robert bought the pre-existing business in January 2012 and we do our best to continually improve the offering and experience for guests; many of whom are coming to celebrate a special occasion for one or more of the group. The house has lots of history. Penbryn Mynach was constructed in the 1870s and together with Twr Mynach next door, the whole building was the original Bryn Mynach with one entrance located at the end of Bryn Mynach Road. In more recent times, it formed part of the old Tower House School in Barmouth, an independent school run for thirty years from the mid 1970s by local resident Iorwerth Gruffudd-Jones. It was spectacularly but sympathetically converted into its current use as a holiday let in 2005 and is now very much still its original self yet a surprisingly modern self catering cottage.

    This was a surprise erhem birthday surprise by my lovely wife to revisit the area in which I spent my childhood, youth and young adulthood during school holidays and leaves. As Fairbourne did not have a cottage large enough to take eight adults, three children and a dog, Penbryn Mynach in Barmouth was a wonderful alternative. I was only given two weeks notice that this had been arranged and the whole family would be joining us. It proved to be a great base to re-visit all those mountains and hills I used to climb, visit my old haunts + beach time. The house was well 'kitted out' and there was plenty of space if one wanted to seclude themselves. We had holidayed as a family in a lovely converted barn with swimming pool in France the year before....but the family agreed that Penbryn Mynach proved to be a bonus for our holiday this year. Another bonus...for me. Barmouth Bridge is celebrating 150 years in 2017. The number of times I have travelled across it on foot, by train in past years and where my father flew his OTU Spitfire under it in 1940. His grand children, their spouses and great-grand children could only wonder at it!
