Guest Accommodation for the Year for Wales 2014 Award!
Established in 1986, this 18th Century Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast, which is only 3 miles from the historic market town of Dolgellau, provides a very high standard of customer care. The owner Olwen Evans has won many awards including AA Guest Accommodation of the Year Award, AA Best Breakfast Award for Wales and AA Friendliest B & B of the Year 2012-13 UK Finalist.
Tyddyn Mawr has been lovingly restored offering superb 5 star farmhouse accommodation, lovely oak beams and log fires. It is the perfect base to explore Southern Snowdonia. The farm nestles at the foot of Cader Idris amidst wild, stunning scenery and Tyddyn Mawr is a paradise for the photographer, walker, rambler, birdwatcher and artist.
The luxurious accommodation comprises two relaxing, large and comfortable bedrooms - one on the ground floor with French doors leading onto the patio suitable for those of limited mobiliy, and one upstairs with a balcony for a stunning view of Cader Idris mountain.
Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated with handmade Welsh oak furniture and luxurious bathrooms ensuring all guests have a memorable and relaxing stay.
Sit, relax and digest the magnificent Cader Idris mountain, explore its mountain lakes or if you're feeling energetic, you can climb to the summit or just lie in bed and admire the landscape!

During our two weeks of travel through Ireland, Wales, and England we stayed in 6 B&B's. This was the best by far. Ms. Evans was a friendly, attentive hostess. Her guest rooms were lovely. They were thoughtfully decorated with fresh flowers, attractive draperies and bedding and quality furnishings. Our teenage daughters said they felt like princesses in their lovely room. Breakfast was a delicious event each morning eaten at a beautifully set table. Ms. Evans was very knowledgeable about the area sites and walking trails. She had many maps and books available for guests to use. I highly recommend this B&B to other travelers. We hope to visit again too!

It was lovely to meet you and I was so glad you enjoyed your stay at Tyddynmawr. Although I have been doing bed and breakfast for 30 years I still get a great buzz out of meeting people from all over the world. Hope you have got lots of wonderful memories of staying in Wales. Best wishes. Olwen
