The Experience

Sleeping two in a double bed, the centrally-heated Showman’s Wagon also features a sitting room with wood burning stove, shower room and galley kitchen with dining area.

The entire living space covers approximately 33 square metres. Outside, a small enclosed garden faces the estuary and forms the perfect spot for the first coffee of the morning or a well-deserved sundowner after the day’s adventures.

Set in amongst woodland overlooking the beautiful Mawddach estuary in the southern reaches of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, the Showman’s Wagon lies between the small pretty market town of Dolgellau and the popular seaside town of Barmouth. It is at the head of the beautiful Cwm-Mynach Valley, meaning the valley of the monks, historically owned and farmed by nearby Cymer Abbey. The area is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers.

It's been lovely

We just wanted to say thank you for our stay. It's been lovely and exactly what we were looking for. The view is amazing, fitting for our 5th wedding anniversary.

Wonderful sunsets you get here!

What wonderful sunsets you get here! We have enjoyed gentle strolls in various locations with our elderly dogs.They had the most fun running free on Barmouth Beach. The wagon is such a cosy place to return and relax in the evenings, we have had a lovely time. We really appreciated the fresh bread and provisions on our arrival. Thanks for a lovely week.
