Property Location


Llanbrynmair is a small village, little more than a cluster of old stone cottages, set in the beautifully open River Twymyn valley, which was formed by glaciers thousands of years ago. It is wrapped around by the soft green lush hills and oak woodlands that are home to gently chomping sheep and myriad freewheeling birds. Just a whisper away from the Southern reaches of Snowdonia National Park the summit of Cader Idris visible from village (snow capped in winter). At the centre of the village there is a characterful, friendly historic pub and village shop and cafe. 11th C church in Llan.
