About Us

Welcome to the newly refurbished Brigands Inn Mallwyd.  Nestled in the beautiful Dovey Valley the stunning scenery of the Welsh countryside is plain to see from every aspect.  This 15th Century Coaching Inn has recently undergone a transformation and re-opened offering guests a choice of dining, drinking and sleeping options.  With a wealth of exposed beams, feature fireplaces, beautiful solid Oak furniture, locally sourced seasonal produce and a fantastic range of ale’s and wine’s this really is the ideal location to explore from staying in one of our nine individually designed rooms.


As the gateway to Snowdonia the options for walking, mountain biking, water sports or just enjoying the scenery are endless.  For those of you who prefer the lure of the sea the coastal towns of Harlech, Barmouth, Aberdovey, Tywyn and Aberystwyth are all just a short drive away with all they offer.


If you enjoy your country sports plenty of Sewin and Salmon can be found running the Dovey and Trout fishing can be arranged in local lakes be it Wild Brownie’s or Rainbow Trout.  Clay shooting can be arranged just down the road at the Dovey Valley Shooting Ground or at the nearby Mid Wales Ground, and with some of the finest Pheasant and Duck shooting in the UK to be found locally namely the Brigands Shoot and the much anticipated Camlan Shoot you can really make the most of your time with us.


We have nine individually designed bedrooms at the Brigands Inn.  Each room has been carefully designed to take full advantage of the historic features yet with all the comforts you would expect from a modern hotel room.   One of the best features is the use of our fantastic resident’s lounge where guests can relax and enjoy a coffee with the paper, or challenge your partner or friends to a game of Monopoly or cards.


All of our rooms have solid Oak beds with some of the rooms having feature four-posters or half-testers and all have deep mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets and luxury duvets.

The luxurious bathrooms all have baths and monsoon showers over them or have a separate walk in shower and come with fluffy towels and luxury Ebony London toiletries.


Each room has flat screen TV’s, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities.


Two of our rooms can be made as twins and we also have a family room that has a king-size bed as well as a single, and we have a cot that can be made up.

The Brigands Inn is surrounded by some of the greatest topography in the United Kingdom. Not only great for walking, biking and exploring but perfect for the very best driven game shooting the country has to offer in the winter months.

There are many shoots in the area with a superb variety of drives, from more traditional wooded Welsh valleys on the edge of the Dovey River to the rugged bracken clad mountainsides which climb dramatically overlooking the beautiful coastline to the west of the Brigand Inn.

People will always remember a trip to the Brigands for the tall birds but also for the scenery. Walking into the ‘Seven Twenty’ valley with the cascading waterfall beside the pegs is breath taking. Whilst standing at the foot of the ‘Oaks’ drive in autumn colour is a spectacle not to be missed and the sight of pheasants flushing from the rocky outcrops of the ‘Marsh’ are special moments in the sporting year.

Days are available throughout the season and we would be delighted to organise a day or two for individuals and teams of guns. Please contact us for availability.





Local Area

The Brigands Inn is located perfectly to make the most of the wide variety of places and activities that surround us.  Using the Brigands as a hub many of the highlights Wales has to offer are within striking distance.


The fantastic array of beaches and coastal towns ensure that there is something for everyone.  Aberystwyth and its winding promenade is popular with visitors and locals alike and in summer is a thriving resort town, further along the coast there is an array of towns such as Aberdyfi, Tywyn, Borth, Barmouth and Harlech.  Each have their individual character and charm but all are worth exploring to find your favourite.


Snowdonia literally begins on the doorstep and the National Park has a wide variety of activities to suit all.  For the more adventurous the mountain biking, tree top parks, white water rafting and canoeing can be found in various locations.  The area also has many fantastic areas for walking, bird watching or beautiful drives to take in the outstanding scenery and with a rich railway heritage there are many stunning railway journeys that can be taken.


The local area is also a top destination for fishing and with the river Dovey full of Sewin, Salmon and Brown Trout. Fishing can also be arranged on numerous local lakes for trout, and the coastline and sea is fantastic for Bass and Mackerel.
