The Observer Magazine called Graig Wen 'an awe-inspiring corner of Snowdonia' and breathtaking views of the Mawddach Estuary and mountains await you here. The stylishly converted Victorian slate cutting mill perches above native woodland leading to the waters' edge. Our easy going atmosphere and beautiful environment make Graig Wen the perfect rural retreat for walkers, bird-watchers, mountain bikers/cyclists, artists, photographers and star-gazers. Watch woodpeckers from your window or hang out with the herons.

We've got luxury beds, Welsh slate floors, mighty oak beams and custom-made funky furniture. All 5 of our guest bedrooms have: bespoke furniture made from local reclaimed slate and timber, luxury beds with distinctive Welsh rugs, flat screen TVs with inbuilt DVD/CD players, free WIFI, Fairtrade tea and coffee tray, complimentary Pure Lakes toiletries, original artwork

There is a spacious communal area with stunning views an honesty bar and eclectic library of books and music. Our dining room or ""Caban"" and terrace overlook the Mawddach estuary and mountains. We are licensed to serve wine and beer.

Our guest house is suitable for children over 10 years of age. Families with younger children are very welcome in our adjoining holiday cottages, camp site and yurts.

Guests can explore Graig Wen's 45 acres of wild woodland, streams and meadows or cosy up in the spacious lounge with an eclectic library of books and music . There's an honesty bar, free wifi access and (some) mobile reception.

This is the ideal base to explore the Snowdonia National Park - whether you want to steam up Snowdon on a train or go white-water rafting.

    “Would definitely go there again”

    As part of a short cycling tour through Wales we chose to stop for a night at The Slate Shed. After experiencing some proper Welsh weather, we arrived soaked to the bone. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were soon luxuriating in the lovely shower.

    The rooms are very comfortable and had a nice mix of old and modern furniture.

    Breakfast was delicious and good fuel for our next day of riding.

    We will definitely go back to spend more time exploring the area.

    Thanks. As cyclists ourselves we appreciate how much a warm welcome means after a soggy day in the saddle!
