Cae Gwyn Farm & Nature Reserve
The barn conversion in which our four double en-suite B&B rooms are located is part of the range of traditional stone buildings in the farmyard, which is over 200 years old. It is fully self contained with it's own kitchen, breakfast room/lounge area making it possible for the whole barn to be used for self catering if required.
We use organically grown, fair trade and locally available produce as much as possible for our farmhouse continental breakfast, which includes a choice of cereals, toast, croissants, cheese, yoghurt, fruit juice and coffee or a variety of teas. Our drinking water is sourced from our own mountain spring.
Our guests are invited to walk freely around our 190 acre farm and nature reserve - parts of it designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) for its rare fauna, flora and aquatic life.
There are an abundance of all year round activities nearby and further afield within the Snowdonia National Park. There are numerous footpaths, including the Roman Steps and the Precipice Walk, with for the more adventurous, Cader Idris and Snowdon not too far away. Some of the UK's best mountain bike trails can be found close by in the Coed-y-Brenin forest (bike hire available) and you can also try out the recently opened tree top adventure centre.
You can also enjoy either walking or cycling along the Mawddach Trail which runs along the old railway line from Dolgellau to Barmouth alongside the river and crossing the wooden viaduct over the river mouth. There are miles of white sandy beaches at Barmouth and from there you can take the coastal road to Harlech where you see the spectacularly sited 13th century Harlech castle. You can explore nearby RSPB sanctuaries or visit ancient castles and slate caverns. River/lake/sea fishing, wind-surfing, climbing, bird-watching, golfing, pony trekking/horse riding, canoeing, and white water-rafting are some of many activities to be found in the near vicinity of Cae Gwyn.
During the summer months Cae Gwyn Farm has rare and unusual wild flowers and plants, including colonies of wild Orchids, the delicate Ragged Robin, floating water-plantain, bog pimpernel and the insect eating plant Sundew. The river Eden flows across Cae Gwyn land where if you are very lucky you may spot otters but you are more likely to see trout and salmon.
All in all, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, Cae Gwyn is the place for you.
