Showman's Wagon in Taicynhaeaf, Gwynedd - for a short midweek or long weekend break

Welcome to Showman's Wagon and ideal choice for your next long weekend or midweek break.

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.
