Restored 16th Century house in Snowdonia awarded 5 star grading from Visit Wales


Located on the A 493, 2 miles outside the noted market town of Dolgellau, Brynadda has undergone a total transformation without losing its character and homely atmosphere.

No expense has been spared on any part of the internal or external renovation. Each room has been individually designed with quality furnishings and fittings, cleverly integrating antique with contemporary; traditional with ‘high tech’.

The result is a house that sleeps 16 to include an adapted ground floor suite, a room sleeping 2 children in ‘shorty’ bunk beds and 5 bathrooms/shower rooms. The living area comprises a large fully equipped kitchen, with electric cooker and Aga, laundry facilities, a dining room accommodating a custom built oak table to seat eighteen and two sitting rooms. The smaller contains leather furniture, a log burner and large screen TV whilst the larger has a more elegant feel, a bay window with garden views and fire place.

In addition to the provision of wi-fi within, the external complex offers a media /games room and separate sauna facility, complete with shower and seating area. The garden is large, secluded and surrounded by farmland and woods. A biomass boiler is fed with the spent timber creating a renewable energy source to provide heating and hot water for the premises.

Guests are treated to a welcome hamper and honesty larder comprising some Fair Trade, organic and locally sourced products. Drinking water is purified from a mountain source.

Owner Ruth Tudor is justly proud of what has been achieved. “Brynadda is special to me as it is where I grew up and the reason why I have devoted so much care and attention to its restoration. I look forward to welcoming visitors here to enjoy the house and its surroundings whilst also hopefully, spending time exploring Dolgellau and the nearby coast and countryside”.

Historically important for its gold mines from which rings are made for royalty, today, many people come for Snowdonia National Park’s unrivalled scenery, low and high level walks that include the Mawddach Trail or Cader Idris , the seaside or the many attractions such as the Fairbourne or Tal-y-llyn railways.

It is an excellent venue for group celebrations, family holidays, and individuals wishing to relax in beautiful, comfortable surroundings or even a small meetings destination.
