Accommodation in Snowdonia

Encil Eryri (Snowdonia Hideaway) is set in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, between mountains and sea and close to the seaside towns of Tywyn and Aberdyfi. We offer quirky and luxurious accommodation options and glamping in the South Snowdonia National Park with coast and mountain views suitable for families and couples, or a larger family group of up to 8. The smallholding is located just above a request halt on the famous Tal Y Llyn steam railway, so it is possible to arrive by steam train, yes, really!

​With a 20 minute walk to the estuary, local shop, and pub, it’s the perfect location to relax, restore and explore the wonderful beaches and historic sites of Snowdonia, Gwynedd. The Southern Snowdonia National Park is less explored, so you won’t be sharing it with hundreds of other tourists, like the North Snowdonia equivalent. In contrast, there is always space to be found and an empty beach, especially out of season. Encil Eryri is close to good cycle routes and it’s possible to enjoy flat open vistas and rolling hills, as well as craggy off road mountain bike descents, all within a stone’s throw of the cottages.

Spend your days exploring Snowdonia’s scenic mountain roads, hills tops and sheltered woodland walks. Then return to Encil Eryri for a cuppa and a read of a good book. Sample the warming flavours of Wales’ seasonal produce at the many award-winning local restaurants nearby. Set aside some time to get close to nature and connect with the big outdoors and those you love.

This year we have glamping in a beautiful bell tent in our 2 acre flower meadow, with wood fired hot tub.

The Crogloft – Sleeps 2 + 2 children

The Crogloft is a converted hayloft situated in the upper garden, with its own private garden area, kitchenette, private bathroom and balcony for you to enjoy the elements of the great outdoors. It is perfect for stargazing as we are in a protected ‘dark skies’ region and fans of astronomy will love the rooflight to view the stars and sun rise from your bed. There is also an easy slide sun shade curtain when you want to block out the light. The Crogloft also has a fire pit and is furnished with a double bed and a double futon sofa bed, the kitchenette including hob, microwave and fridge-freezer. The Crogloft is warm and cosy for that feeling of connection to nature, with the luxury of staying out of the elements.

      Small but perfect place for a getaway with stunning views
    You have the best of both worlds with out of the way quiet places nearby, but also a large village and town a few minutes drive
    We loved it as a base for walking

    thumb Belinda

      We had a great time here, the views are stunning, location is ideal if you want to get off the beaten track and escape. The local shops/amenities are just 5 mins down the road. The added bonus of the hot tub helps after a day out in the mountains. It has all the facilities you’d need for a short stay, microwave, kettle, pots etc. it’s clean and tidy, the bed is comfy and the room was lovely and warm, it’s private from the main house and not overlooked. The pets are also super friendly. We really enjoyed our time here.
