Cottage Holidays in Fairbourne, Gwynedd, Wales

The lovely seaside resort of Fairbourne can be found along the beautiful coast of Barmouth Bay in Gwynedd in North West Wales. It is close to the estuary of the picturesque River Mawddach and Snowdonia National Park surrounds the area, meaning that this incredible area of natural beauty, including the soaring Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, can easily be visited on day trips whilst enjoying a cottage holiday in Fairbourne.

Choices when it comes to places to stay include coastal cottages and even cottages with sea views. Whether you are searching for a family holiday or are planning a special break away, we hope you find the best place for you on Country Cottages Online.

With an impeccably stunning blue flag award winning beach in town, Fairbourne has plenty to recommend it for special breaks away. This lovely beach stretches for two miles, with gorgeous golden sands and clear waters. The southern part of the beach features many striking cliffs while the northern joins with the Mawddach estuary, but whichever end you choose to visit, be it both, you will not be short of great places to laze about and enjoy time catching a tan or dipping in the ocean. The area welcomes dogs aside from during peak season in the summer when dogs are banned in the central area of the beach to make way for holidaymakers who may have young children with them. For those who have limited access such as wheelchairs or are visiting with prams, there is great access to the beach due to sloping entrances, enabling this beach to be easily visited by everyone who wishes to.

The Fairbourne Steam Railway is a popular tourist attraction which has been operating for over one hundred years and you may wish to take a ride and sample it for yourself when on a self-catering break in Gwynedd. Once a horse-drawn tramway which was converted into a railway in 1916, steam trains now take holidaymakers down to the mouth of the Mawddach estuary. Taking a ride on this historical steam train is a great way to feel as though you have gone back in time and to soak up wonderful lush surroundings. Even dogs are allowed on the train for only £1, meaning that no one in the family needs to be left out!

Walking is a popular thing to do in Fairbourne due to the amazing scenery on offer here, and taking a stroll by the Blue Lake is a great way to lap up some of this scenery. The Blue Lake is a stunning lagoon which can be found by the Goleuwern Slate Quarry. Access is only available by foot and you may have to walk through a wet tunnel to reach it, but the lagoon is well worth it once you get there!

With numerous shops and plenty of lovely pubs, restaurants and cafes as well as a stunning beach, Fairbourne is a charming village in this part of Wales with plenty to see and do on a special cottage holiday.
