Is Abergwesyn Wales’ best kept secret?

If you are after a feeling of remoteness, Abergwesyn is the place for you. Just 50 miles from Cardiff, Abergwesyn Valley is a true wilderness.

We have a few cottages in and around Abergwesyn, Glyn Barn sleeps 10 in a gorgeous, well equipped barn conversion with superb views.

Penrhyn Barn also sleeps 10, and is at the other end of the valley. It’s on a working farm in the most spectacular spot.

Idyllic Nuthatch Cottage sleeps 2, and has the most wonderful garden and is a haven for bird watchers.  Alltwinau Farmhouse sleeps 6 people in 4 rooms, and is a perfect getaway – ideal for families.

If you’re looking for a challenge, there is some wonderful mountain biking in the area, and for road bikers, it’s the start of the well known (amongst intrepid cyclists) Devil’s Staircase.  A mile-long stretch of old Drovers Road with some of the most astonishing hills.  For walkers, there is a good range of walks from stiff summits to easy ridge and valley walks.

Abergwesyn commons are full of archaeological remains – you’ll find Bronze Age ritual sites, deserted medieval villages, cairns and a stone circle.

Birdwatchers will find Nuthatch Cottage fascinating, but should also look out for red kites, golden plovers and visit Gwenffrwd-Dinas Nature Reserve.
