Twr Mynach 1880 to 2020

Escape to Twr Mynach your beautifully restored vintage Guest House Bed & Breakfast in Barmouth, Gwynedd, resting within the south west corner of Snowdonia National Park.

Twr Mynach (Monk Tower) is a unique gem of a guest house overlooking Barmouth at the foot of Brynn Mynach.

Getaways at Twr Mynach offer the best of both worlds – the fun and beauty of the picturesque beach, surrounded by local shops and cafes, and the dramatic mountain walks of Snowdonia all on your doorstep.

It’s a serious space that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Part of the former Tower House School built around 1880 in an arts and crafts style lovingly brought back to life like a mini Welsh gothic castle!

Our emphasis is to provide a peaceful but playful environment with a friendly relaxed vintage vibe.

Both our rooms offer panoramic sea views and have their own individual outside terrace from the tower terrace to a castle rampart.

All our bed linen and towels are responsibly sourced organic cotton.

Our toiletries and cleaning products are environmentally friendly with no nasty chemicals. Not a whiff of single use plastics as we love our ocean.

It’s a challenge with historic buildings but we believe in running an eco friendly sustainable establishment. Our electricity is supplied by 100% green energy and we pay the extra to carbon offset 100% of our gas.

Your hosts Henrietta (Henri) and Pavlos come from a design background and have a love of unusual buildings – our previous project was the restoration of an old Cotswold stone tailors’ shop in Gloucestershire.

Back in late 2018 it was time for a change and a new project by the sea beckoned, in a moment of excitement we discovered and fell in love with Twr Mynach. So with our friendly rescue dog Zelda in hand we moved to Barmouth.

A year of blood, sweat and the occasional tear was spent painstakingly restoring the old Tower House School back to its former glory.

We look forward to welcoming you to a truly wonderful place.
