Holidaying with your best  friend?

We created Geufron Farm after years of travelling around the UK with our yellow labradors, Ollie & Lily. We always looked for somewhere safe for them to visit, with plenty of outdoor space for zoomies and a space large enough for them to snuggle up in their favourite dog bed.

With walks right from the doorstep, dog friendly beaches all year round and a dog friendly local pub just a 15-minute walk across the fields you can be sure that you will have a fantastic holiday together at Geufron Farm.

All we ask is that you are respectful and please:
– Be neat and wipe your paws
– Keep sofas & beds for human guests only
– Use your lead at all times, except in the dog play field or garden
– Bring your favourite dog bedding, towel, food bowls etc
– Pick up your poops and pop them in one of the doggy bins around the farm.
– If other owners are using the dog field, please check they are comfortable for your dogs to mix before entering.

If there is anything you are unsure about before booking to stay with your dog please do get in touch. We’ll be delighted to help.

Dog friendly Steam Train

We are so lucky to have the beautiful Talyllyn Steam Railway pass opposite the farm each day. Its the first preserved narrow guage railway in the world and best of all its great dog friendly day out!

Ollie, Lilly & Bracken were welcomed aboard by General Manager Stuart Williams and his fantastic team of volunteers.  

All passengers get their own private compartment which is screened off from other visitors so we felt very safe on the train and the pups soon made themselves at home, fast asleep under the seats.

The journey takes you from the Wharf station at Tywyn, where there is also a museum, cafe & shop to visit, up though the valley & forests to Nant Gwernol & Abergynolwyn where you can hop off off to stretch your paws. You can also order drinks and even a cream tea to make your journey even more special.

We highly recommend a visit!

We can’t wait to welcome you to Snowdonia!


Dog friendly beaches

Our pups love the beach so its great to have two beaches with designated dog areas just a short drive away. 

Tywyn beach is about 7km long with a long promenade, ideal for walkies.  Cardigan Bay is home to harbour porpoises and bottlenose dolphins, which may be spotted off the coast near here. Dogs are welcome on the southern section of the beach all year round; the section along the main prom does have restrictions between April & end September which are helpfully signposted. 

The pretty town of Aberdyfi, about a 15 minute drive from Geufron Farm, used to be a working port and indeed you’ll still see fishermen coming & going as well as lots of watersports taking place. 

A portion of Aberdyfi beach nearest the town is a dog-free zone, but otherwise the beach is open to dog walkers and your pups are bound to love the sand dunes here. The car park is pay & display so ensure you take some change with you. 

Meet the team!

Dottie, or ‘Dottie Dora the dog explorer’ to give her her full title, is our youngest team member! She’s a mixed breed, Border Collie crossed with a Lagotto Romagnolo (nope, we didn’t know what one of those was either!) and is a bundle of loveable energy.

Welcome to the team Dottie, we’re all glad you’re here!

Everyone, meet Bracken 🐶 Bracken, this is everyone …

Bracken is a beautiful Welsh Sheepdog. Despite coming form a long line of esteemed pedigree Sheepdogs, at the grand old age of she 3 has decided running around after fluffy white things wasn’t quite her thing and has taken on a career change into hospitality.

Bracken’s job it to ensure Geufron Farm is pawsome for all the lucky pups who come here on holiday.

Her first suggestion … build a large dog play field to do morning zoomies in! 

In Loving Memory of

Ollie & Lily

Many years spent holidaying with Ollie & Lily, our yellow labradors was the inspriation for welcoming dogs and their owners. 

Anyone with a dog knows that they are a special part of the family & all the team here at Geufron Farm miss both Ollie & Lily very much every day.
