Lofft Gwair is a rustic first floor conversion of an C18th hayloft, retaining original features and approached through a stone arch and cobbled courtyard at the owners' small pottery just outside Maentwrog. Situated in a lovely position next to the Dwyryd river and with a pretty garden to explore, this property is also within easy reach of many popular tourist attractions. Harlech 9 miles, Blaenau Ffestiniog 6 miles, Porthmadog 7 miles and Criccieth 12 miles.
The spacious, open plan main room has exposed trusses and beams, a three piece suite, TV/Freesat, oak dining table with a church pew, dining chairs and a 5ft 'sleigh' bed in one corner. Off the main room is a twin bedroom, a shower room and a compact fitted kitchen. Heating is by electric convectors and oil-filled radiators. The delightful shared garden has a sitting area and two small ponds, where young children should be supervised. Private parking and secure bike storage available.
Lofft Gwair is located in the Snowdonia National Park; this area has much to offer the visitor. Within walking distance are the beautiful gardens and tea rooms at Plas Tan y Bwlch, the pretty village and great pub at Maentwrog and a station on the Ffestiniog Railway. The castles and beaches at Harlech and Criccieth are a short drive away, the Italianate village at Portmeirion 5 miles, and 2 miles further is the small town, harbour and Welsh Highland Railway at Porthmadog. This whole area is popular for walking and cycling and for adrenaline junkies the famous Titan ZipWire and Bounce Below underground trampolines can be found at Blaenau Ffestiniog.

We had a lovely time staying in this beautiful home. Amazing views and walks with helpful tips on the local area.Robyn Fraser - 7th April 2018
A lovely unusual place in a beautiful valley. Owners were lovely and we will book again.Miss Walton - 8th October 2016
It is a typical a Welsh Farmhouse. Owners very welcoming and helpful nothing too much trouble.Mrs Jenkins - 17th September 2016
Our loft was cosy, simple, full of character, in a lovely setting, in a lovely area, and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. Would certainly go there again.Mrs Godridge - 27th June 2016
A very charming place. It was old and still in the process of restoration, which on the other hand made it a feast of original details. We enjoyed that very much. The hosts were very nice and told us so many stories about the place and the surroundings. The house is located very strategical along a main road. In a little more than 15 minutes one can be at the beach as well as in the mountains. And beautiful walks can be started right from the garden. We had a most perfect stay here.Mrs Oehlen-Burmann - 12th June 2016
We had a lovely four nights in the cottage and a very warm welcome from the owners who were very kind and helpful throughout our stay. We wished we could have stayed longer, the surrounding countryside is wonderful. A very enjoyable and happy experience from start to finish. Thank you.Mrs Wilkinson - 12th November 2015
Central to all of North Wales and set in a beautiful valley, river at the end of the garden and the mountains in walking distance. Easy to access just off the main route. 2 excellent pubs within walking distance( one a nice walk down the riverbank). Plus the owners are on site for a friendly welcome.Mr Cornwell - 7th September 2015

Very friendly owners.Mr Foreman - 17th July 2015
Lovely to receive personal service of such a high level. And our converted hayloft was a great base for the area.Ms McCann - 20th September 2014
This is a wonderful unconventional spacious self catering property placed halfway between Porthmadog and Ffestiniog and within walking distance of a halt on the railway. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The only drawback for some people would be the steep narrow stairs leading up to it. Not a problem for ourselves though and it made the perfect honeymoon location for us.Mr Owen - 10th August 2014
Centralised for touring and lovely walks from Lofft Gwair. Owners very friendly. Warmly welcomed.Mr Wright - 20th July 2014
Great property, lovely people, wonderful holiday. Highly recommended.Mr Dunderdale - 3rd June 2014
