Barmouth Harbour and Railway
It was the railway that brought tourists to Barmouth in the Victorian age and the railway still dominates the town. The spectacular half-mile long bridge across the Mawddach estuary is one of the most recognisable sights in all of Wales. You can walk across it, (70p toll), and enjoy the wide ranging views and maybe continue on the old track-bed along the water’s edge to Dolgellau, (recently featured on Julia Bradbury's ‘Railway Walks’ programme).
The harbour has one of the finest outlooks in Britain. Why not enjoy an ‘al-fresco’ coffee or lunch?
Shopping and Views
Browse the shops on the High Street and admire the fine Victorian town clinging to the steep cliff above you. The gorse covered hillside above the town, known as Dinas Oleu, has the distinction of being the first property to be gifted to the National Trust. Climb up here for stunning views over the town and out across Cardigan Bay.
And don’t forget we have some of the finest beaches in Europe on this stretch of coast. Seven miles of pure sand stretches from the family-friendly Blue-Flag beach at Barmouth.
Cycle, walk, drive or simply chill out and relax – Barmouth is a great location.
As you enter Barmouth on the A496 from Dolgellau Panorama Road is the first road on the right and is off a sharp left hand bend. It climbs steeply with two hairpin bends as it runs around the Bae Abermaw hotel. Bryn Melyn will then come into view above the road to the left. Ignore the car park entrance and go straight past it, up the hill about 100 yards. Turn round at the next junction before coming back down the hill into our car park.
Bryn Melyn has seasonal special offers and promotions.
