The Gwynedd region

North Wales boasts unbelievably stunning scenery from the top of the Snowdon Mountain range (3,560ft 1085m) which you can walk to on several tracks or ride to on the Snowdon Mountain Railway to view the magnificent centrepiece of the Snowdonia National Park from the summit. With breathtaking views of the neighbouring peaks, ancient woodlands and moorlands, down to the wooded valleys, still lakes and rushing rivers leading to a stunning coastline.

The shoreline varies from the gentle Victorian style seaside beach of Llandudno to the rocky crags at South stack in Holyhead, the Italianate village of Portmeirion to the bustling University City of Bangor. There are excellent water pursuits in the Menai Strait and the National Watersports Centre at Plas Menai, as well as white water rafting.

There are an incredible range of outdoor pursuits such as climbing, walking, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, golfing, fishing and bird watching in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Special Areas for Conservation and Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

But equally North Wales is home to some of the National Trust's greatest treasures including Penrhyn castle, Plas Newydd and Bodnant Gardens; World Heritage Sites of Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech; and probably the greatest density of preserved railway including the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway .

The great feats of 19th Century Engineering of the iconic Britannia and Menai Suspension Bridges spanning the Menai Straits, Conwy Suspension Bridge and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct .

Tyddyn Sydney Bach just off junction 9 of the A55 is the ideal base for exploring and experiencing culture, history, industrial archaeology and the widest possible range of outdoor and leisure pursuits.


Tyddyn Sydney Bach is located in the secluded grounds of a larger cottage in the village of Treborth, just on the outskirts of the University City of Bangor, between the internationally famous Britannia and Menai Bridges crossing to Anglesey. Treborth is as old as the Faenol Estate, which dates from Tudor times.

Treborth means a homestead and a ferry and was probably associated with one of the many ferries crossing the Straits. In the 19th century it became the site of one of the greatest works of engineering of the railway age and home to the hundreds of workers and their families.

Five minutes walk from Tyddyn Sydney Bach takes you to one of the Britannia Bridge Lions and a little further on to some of the last relics of the original tubular bridge and its construction. Five minutes walk in the other direction takes you to the Treborth driving range and 9 hole golf course

Treborth is on the outskirts of the small but lively University City of Bangor with her restored Victorian Pier, Port Penrhyn and beautiful Cathedral where Deiniol founded his monastic community in 525 AD. Art and local artifacts are on display in Gwynedd Museum and Gallery. Leisure facilities include a swimming pool complete with diving boards and water slide, all-weather 5-a-side and grass playing fields, Bowling Green and a shopping street which is reputed to be the longest High Street in Wales.

Bangor is a friendly coastal city with unique character and landscape which boasts its own mountain and panoramic views of the sea. Bangor Mountain is home to the St. Deiniol Golf Club designed by James Braid, the famous golf architect and Open Champion. In the City itself there are nature and heritage trails linking the City’s green spaces with its rich-architectural heritage.

Nearby the National Trust’s properties of Penrhyn castle, a Neo-Norman revival mansion, which has stunning views, a Victorian walled garden, collection of dolls and toys, steam engines and great master paintings and Plas Newydd with its collection of Whistler’s work where the fascinating and intriguing mural can be seen in the dining room should not be missed neither should the World Heritage Site of Edward 1 castles at Beaumaris, Caernarfon, and Conwy.

Bangor is twinned with Soest in Westphalia, Germany and enjoys frequent exchanges between Soest and Bangor Citizens.

"Best Self Catering ever stayed in!"

Coming from South Africa and touring Whales, we stayed for 7 nights after spending 5 nights in Bath rural area. The rates were very similar between the two establishments but the quality of accommodation all-over of Tyddyn Sydney Bach was a world apart from that experienced in Bath.
A very friendly lady, Les Day, met us upon arrival and took time to explain everything we should know about our new home. Not only was the apartment, very neat and fully equipped with everything you should need during your stay, but we also found milk in the fridge, flowers on the table and a fruit-loaf for us to enjoy!
The apartment was well stocked with washing machine an dishwasher powder, even the liquid for hand washing your dishes were supplied.
Bedding and mattress were of very high quality and CLEAN. The bathroom spotless and comfortable, fitted with towel-warmer and high quality towels.
The environment around the apartment is very neat and quiet allowing you to have a peaceful stay.
Les and her husband were always available to supply help and information when necessary but always respecting our privacy.
Rest assure, the photos of the apartment you see on internet is a true reflection of what can be expected, there will be no surprises. My only surprise was that it was rated 4 stars and not 5!
The free Wifi/internet access was a real bonus.
Les Day is a real asset for the Whales hospitality industry.

"Fantastic cottage with everything that you need"

Really lovely cottage in fantastic garden. Very warm welcome. Les showed us round and explained how everything worked. The roses and bara brith were a lovely touch. All mod cons and in easy reach of several supermarkets. The cottage is well situated for all major tourist spots. We were also very lucky as the sun shone every day. One of our best holidays ever. Thanks Les and William.

"Wonderful Cottage with Wonderful Hosts"

I was working at Bangor University for 6 weeks and this proved to be the ideal rental accommodation. It was very well equipped, having everything I needed for my stay. My hosts, Les and William, were friendly and helpful and made sure I was completely comfortable. When I next visit Bangor I'll again be staying at the cottage.
