Farmhouse, holiday accommodation & 48 acres of grazing land.


Cae Gwyn Farm is situated in an attractive rural location within the Snowdonia National Park from which many attractions of Snowdonia may be easily accessed. The market town of Dolgellau, lying some 8 miles to the South, is within easy reach and offers a range of local shops, public houses and administrative services.

Of particular note is that the renowned Coed y Brenin centre, one of the national hubs for mountain bikers, trail runners and visitors generally, is within touching distance of Cae Gwyn Farm.


Within an hour’s drive is the University City of Bangor which hosts a range of larger national retailers and supermarkets.

For travelling further afield the North Wales coast is easily reached by way of the A55 North Wales Expressway which also provides links to the national motorway network. In less than two hours Manchester International Airport and Liverpool John Lennon Airport may be reached and a direct train link from Bangor to London Euston takes approximately 3½ hours.


The traditional Welsh farmhouse offers comfortable living space over two floors with many traditional features still being retained. Whilst requiring modernisation in part, the ground floor is well arranged to provide comfortable living space with the kitchen diner and reception room both benefitting from fine views. Upstairs extends to four bedrooms, two of which benefit from an en-suite, and one family bathroom.

Holiday Facilities

Cae Gwyn Farm benefits from having an established and successful ‘turn-key’ holiday business targeting mountain bikers on site.

The facilities are briefly comprised of:

Bed & breakfast barn

The fully furnished B&B barn provides comfortable living space and four en-suite rooms over 2 floors.

It has a fully equipped kitchen so can be used as a self-catering unit when not being used for B&B.

Camping Barn

Benefitting from facilities for up to 10 individuals, the camping barn is situated on the first floor of one of the traditional stone outbuildings and provides a higher end camping facility for those not wishing to face the Welsh elements at night!


Cae Gwyn benefits from planning permission for all year use in the fields adjoining the house. The site is serviced by a toilet and shower unit as well as camper’s kitchen area and storage facilities.

For further information please contact the selling agents.


The land extends to approximately 48 acres of grazing land split into a number of paddocks and easily manageable enclosures. The land is predominantly permanent pasture with internal and external boundaries being a mixture of hedgerows and post and wire fencing. The fields are serviced by a natural water supply.

In addition there is c.1 kilometre of fishing rights on the river Eden, a SSSI nature reserve and additional land for sale by separate negotiation.


Cae Gwyn has been owner operated successfully since 2005 and trades year round to a healthy profitable level. Owing to its location in the Snowdonia National Park, and the variety of accommodation on offer, the business continues to see bookings outside of the main summer season with many return customers. The site is particularly well visited by mountain bikers due to its proximity to Coed y Brenin mountain bike centre. The business benefits from its own website and the business still has scope to increase profitability by promoting higher occupancy and accommodation rates. The business trades below the VAT threshold and further financial information is available from the selling agent, on request, with actual trading accounts to be made available following a formal successful viewing.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
