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.

    Amazing location and accommodation. Very clean and well equipped. What ever the weather there is so many places to go and visit. Snowdonia National Park has to be discovered.

    A great location, cycle, walking tracks by the door, no need for a car. Quiet at night and an east walk to the local hotel for drinks and food. Really helpful owners who made us really welcome.

    Beautiful cottage right in the heart of the Snowdonian mountains. The photos on here don't show off how pretty the unspoilt countryside looks. We'll definitely come back.
