Perched on the much photographed, Grade II listed, wooden toll bridge, this amazing Toll Bridge House was built in 1921 as a home for the resident tollkeeper. The bridge was built in 1879 across the tidal Mawddach Estuary at Penmaenpool, and this unique holiday home offers a remarkably spacious interior. The toll bridge is still in use today, linking the coastal towns of Tywyn and Barmouth in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. There is a lovely little balcony on the opposite side of the bridge – the perfect place to sip a glass of wine and enjoy watching a sunset. The Mawddach Trail walking and cycle path passes the door, and follows the route of the old railway line from Dolgellau to Barmouth; cycle hire is available in both Dolgellau and Barmouth. Also adjacent is the RSPB bird hide, a great place for watching birds out on the estuary. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this perfect location, the market town of Dolgellau and the beaches of Barmouth and Fairbourne are well worth a visit, as are the nearby Fairbourne Railway and Talyllyn Railway. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Beautiful scenery, very comfortable accommodation with everything you need for a relaxing stay, including free fire wood for the log burner and welcome gifts of Welsh Cakes and wine! Unique property and well worth the price. Hosts are on hand for advice and very friendly. Absolutely stunning!

    Excellent stay and both Barry and Sue were very welcoming and answered any questions we had about the local area. Cottage was perfect and homely touches were left which made it even more special. Can’t wait to return.

    Comfortable and characterful accommodation in a quirky setting. Very friendly and accommodating owners. We had a wonderful stay, and would definitely stay again. Great for long traffic free walks or biking in the area.
