Bryteg is a holiday home but also a ‘home from home’ where you immediately feel comfortable and find everything to hand.. The beds were comfortable the heating and the shower powerful and hot, and we felt very happy staying there! It is a credit to its owners and we found it very clean everywhere on arrival.
The Bungalow is well situated and has views of the bay from the lounge window - something of a great for us seeing the sea every morning as we live in the Centre of England - and from where we could easily check to confirm that the train was running, not that it didn’t even during the storms we experienced during our visit!
The station is a ten minute walk and offers a very convenient and inexpensive service into Barmouth, £4 return, and the opportunity to travel over the Railway Viaduct across the Mawddach Estuary. A well stocked Co-Op is to be found next to the Station there also! You can take the train to places north in Snowdonia, such as Harlech and Porthmadog and south to Aberdyfi and Machynlleth - all in were in easy reach if you preferred to leave the car at home.
We used Brynteg as a base for travelling on some of the “Great Little Trains of Wales”, one of which, the Talyllyn was a 15 minute drive away south based in the seaside resort of Towyn, where we spent a memorable day on “The Victorian Train” which runs on selected Thursdays in June, July and September.
All in all, we found that the village was well situated for easy access to the surrounding areas, and the neighbours and locals polite and very friendly. The wide range of specially knitted knitted artefacts, displayed in many different places throughout Llwyngwril.
