  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    About this property

    Complimentary Welcome Hamper
    A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

    The Showman’s Wagon is a renovated 1950s fairground travelling-van overlooking the Mawddach Estuary near Dolgellau in the southern reaches of the Snowdonia National Park in Wales. Sleeping two in a double bed, the centrally-heated van 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.
