About Graig Wen Self-catering

The perfect rural retreat for walkers, bird watchers, mountain bikers/cyclists, artists, photographers and star gazers. The four adjoining cottages are set in 45 acres of native woodland and pasture leading to the water's edge of the Mawddach Estuary. Watch the buzzards wheel overhead or hang out with the herons. All our accommodation is pet friendly.
