About this location
The North Wales region
Snowdonia National Park is Wales' premier location for mountaineering, climbing, walking, sailing, boating and nature watching area. Numerous castles are to be found here - Caernarfon, Conwy, Rhuddlan, plus Dolwyddelan and Dolbadarn along with stunning beaches and coastlines. A new 800 miles coastal path will open in 2012 and had been heralded as the world number one attraction by Lonely Planet. An increasingly popular tourist hub there's something for everyone here. Famous visitors have included the naturalist Charles Darwin and mountain climber Edmund Hillary, who along with Tensing Norgay summitted Everest in 1953. Learn a few words of the oldest living language in Europe (Welsh) whilst savouring the many delights of rugged Welsh Wales.
Tanycastell is located at the foot of Moel Siabod and therefore many walks and cycle routes can be started from the cottage. 4 miles east is Betws y Coed, North Wales' tourist hub. Beyond the Crimea pass is Blaenau Ffestiniog which is about to open a range of brand new exciting mountain bike trails. Half an hour away is Llandudno, North Wales' famous Victorian seaside resort. Harlech and Black Rock beaches are only 30 minutes away, or you could walk or take the train up to see the new Hafod Eryri cafe built on the summit of Snowdon. Numerous local festivals are held throughout the year including Wakestock.

"Quite a nice place but very unpleasant owner"
Tanycastell 1 is in a lovely location and the property itself is quite nice, clean and reasonably comfortable. There is a strange situation where the only bathroom with a bath/shower is on-suite and r… More
The content of this review have to be challenged and corrected as they stem from a biased and subjective reviewer.
Firstly, the main bathroom. The situation regarding the main bathroom is highlighted in all booking enquiry documents sent to potential guests. This states:
“Bed linen for following: 1st Bedroom: 1 king size bed with en suite bathroom consisting of bath, over bath shower, washbasin, 2nd Bedroom double bed. 3rd Bedroom – bottom double bunk bed & single top bunk bed. 2nd bathroom consisting of toilet and sink located on main landing.”
Furthermore this reviewer never raised this issue before no, so I find it odd that it appears now.
Secondly, the situation with the TV, which was not working when the guest departed, had to be independently verified by an appropriate person to establish why it wasn't working. This happened during Easter which cause some delay. Once this was done all money due to the guest was returned. The amount reflected exactly what was used – as per the meter reading – and not a penny more. To imply that I'm trying to gain more money or withholding deposits' from guests is without basis and factually incorrect, and simply serves as a ploy to try and smear my character. It is also libellous.
We have welcomed hundreds of guests to our cottages over the last 6 years, the majority of whom have commented on our professional service. None have been as unreasonable as this reviewer who was beyond reproach in her attitude, manner and behaviour. Thankfully we rarely come across such people, and to be honest could well do without.
All previous guests can verify we provide a first rate, lovely, clean cottage. I have no doubt this will be reflected in future trip advisor reviews.
