Snowdonia Bed and Breakfast


Our stylish Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Snowdonia National Park has an incredible location overlooking the Mawddach Estuary - one of the most beautiful views in Wales!

The Slate Shed B & B at Graig Wen near Barmouth and Dolgellau provides pet friendly, bike friendly and accessible accommodation in a converted Victorian slate cutting mill. Wake up to stunning views of Snowdonia's Mawddach Estuary and mountains.

You can walk directly down to the water’s edge and Mawddach Trail (please be aware our track is fairly steep!). The flat cycle trail and foot path between Barmouth and Dolgellau is one of the most scenic stretches of the Wales coast- you may have seen it on BBC's Julia Bradbury Railway Walks programme. Bring your bike or hire one locally to explore the Mawddach Trail and pedal to the pub! We are licensed and serve local craft ales and nice wines. You'll find beaches 5 minutes away and Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre within 15 minutes. With Cadair Idris mountain range on the doorstep and horse-riding on the beach nearby, The Slate Shed bed and breakfast in Snowdonia National Park is a tranquil and beautiful base for activities. The zip wires and Bounce Below at Blaenau Ffestiniog are just 30 minutes away.

Here at Graig Wen we also have a small camp site with a Shepherd's Hut, yurts and four family friendly self-catering lets - more details of our award-winning camp site here: www.graigwen.co.uk. Join Graig Wen on Facebook and Instagram for news about local events, offers and pictures.
