Our 18th Century Visit Wales 4 star Bed and Breakfast (B&B) lies on the edge of Southern Snowdonia National Park close to Dolgellau and across the Mawddach estuary opposite Barmouth on the foothills of Cader Idris with views across Cardigan Bay to the Rhinogs and the Llyn peninsular, sensational sunsets.

Einion House B&B is a short 5 minutes walk from Friog Beach, Fairbourne a beautiful, Marine Con Soc recommended beach and very close to the Wales Coast Path. All rooms are ensuite and rooms have a scenic sea facing view. Einion House Bed & Breakfast is also within easy reach of the amenities of Fairbourne village and the Blue Lake (Blue Pool/lagoon) featured in BBC's Secret Britain.

The Blue Lake (Blue Pool) is a recommendation by guests, with it's views over Fairbourne and Cardigan Bay to the Rhinogs and Llyn Peninsular. The Blue lake is also on the Wales Coast Path which is the path that follows the Welsh coastline and border. Take a gentle stroll along the beach to Penrhyn Point, or a longer walk to Barmouth bridge and walk across into Barmouth as featured on BBC’s “Coast”, across the picturesque Mawddach Estuary to Barmouth; or join the Mawddach trail, featured on BBC's Julia Bradbury’s “Railway walks” to Dolgellau. Fairbourne also boasts its own narrow gauge steam railway, and is on the mainline train to Barmouth and south to Tywyn, Aberdovey.

Other nearby attractions include Cregennan Lakes, Cader Idris, Port Merion, The Centre for Alternative Technology, Electric Mountain, Coed y Brenin Biking centre, Harlech Castle, King Arthur's Labyrinth, Tal-y-Llyn Railway and Bala Railway, Welsh Highland Railway.
