Perched on the much photographed, Grade II listed, wooden toll bridge, this amazing Toll Bridge House was built in 1921 as a home for the resident tollkeeper. The bridge was built in 1879 across the tidal Mawddach Estuary at Penmaenpool, and this unique holiday home offers a remarkably spacious interior. The toll bridge is still in use today, linking the coastal towns of Tywyn and Barmouth in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. There is a lovely little balcony on the opposite side of the bridge – the perfect place to sip a glass of wine and enjoy watching a sunset. The Mawddach Trail walking and cycle path passes the door, and follows the route of the old railway line from Dolgellau to Barmouth; cycle hire is available in both Dolgellau and Barmouth. Also adjacent is the RSPB bird hide, a great place for watching birds out on the estuary. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this perfect location, the market town of Dolgellau and the beaches of Barmouth and Fairbourne are well worth a visit, as are the nearby Fairbourne Railway and Talyllyn Railway. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Enjoyable break but it was very cold in November, ok when the wood burner was fired up, would go again in spring or autumn.

    Fantastic, quirky venue for quiet weekend away from it all with the dog. The lounge/kitchen is bigger than it looks in the photos. Great walks, and everywhere very dog friendly. We will come back again.

    We have just had a week at Toll Bridge House and just WOW it didn’t disappoint! What a superb location for exploring Wales,with great hosts Barry & Sue. The surrounding areas are just magical and left us feeling so relaxed. Would definitely recommend and we can’t wait to book a return visit
