Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Tyn Llech is a lovingly restored 5 Star graded 17th Century two storey stone cottage nestling amongst ancient oak woodlands on a private 2000 acre country estate on the edge of Snowdonia. Originally two farm cottages, this charming house was designed by the Williams-Ellis family (Portmeirion) who have ensured that the renovations were in harmony with the surroundings. With its limed oak flooring, wood burning stove and pastel colours, whether you are looking for a romantic retreat or a family holiday, Tyn Llech won't disappoint. There are breathtaking views right across the Llyn Peninsular from both inside the house and from the pretty lawned gardens.

"Beautiful comfy cottage, a real home from home"
We had a great week's stay in Tyn Llech with our 2 young children. We loved the location, the cottage and the garden, and the property was excellently equipped with nothing lacking. The housekeeping service was most welcome and we appreciated all the extra touches provided. Thank you very much.

"A wonderful experience"
Entering Tyn Llech for the fist time, we felt at home at once. Everything had been prepared with care and love to welcome us to this wonderful cottage, which the whole family took to at once. Nothing was missing for a family of five to let us enjoy two unburdened weeks on the Llyn-peninsula. The children had their rooms upstairs, together with a bathroom; they could make use of the well-kept garden/lawn outside - offering a great view towards the sea, too -, as well as the natural surroundings for their games. The dining-place in the kitchen, the living-room, the parents' bedroom, the bathroom, - every room in the house has been designed and decorated with much love for detail and quality. The friendly housekeeper, Viv, held constant contact with us, took perfect care of the house. The location of Tyn Llech is perfect for short or extended walks starting from the house itself or for excursions to Snowdonia or all over the peninsula. We'll be back soon.

"Excellent cottage with views of green fields and the sea in the distance"
The cottage was in a superb rural setting, with fantastic views down to the sea.
Located only a few miles away from 2 supermarkets and the town of Porthmadog.
Really enjoyed staying in an old cottage which comes with all the modern comforts e.g great walk in shower, wide screen TV, internet access, dishwasher, superb beds etc etc..
