Holidaying with your best  friend?

Geufron Farm’s top Labradors Ollie & Lily as well as newest recruit Welsh Sheepdog, Bracken, know all the best spots to take your well behaved humans.

With walks right from the doorstep, dog friendly beaches all year round and our dog friendly local pub just a 10-minute walk across the fields you can be sure that you will have a fantastic holiday together.

Our dedicated dog field is now open!

We love four legged family members at Geufron Farm!
So whether your pup wants to do zoomies like Bracken, sniff around like Lily or just lay down & take in the view like Ollie this is the place to be 🐶

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, welcomes visitors and best of all its dog friendly!

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 to visit, up though the valley & forests to  Nant Gwernol & Abergwynolwyn 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!

New team member alert

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 on a career change into hospitality.

She has joined top dogs Ollie & Lily to ensure Geufron Farm is pawsome for all the pups who come here on holiday.

Her first suggestion … build a large dog walk to do zoomies in! We’ve picked a spot, marked it out and it will be fenced off especially for our doggy guests soon 😉

We can’t wait to welcome you to Snowdonia!


Dog friendly beaches

Ollie, Lily & Bracken 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. The car park is pay & display so ensure you take some change with you.
