Tan-Y-Wenallt is a ‘ty unnos’ or ‘one night house’. An ancient and well known building tradition here in Wales. There are many examples of houses of this type dotted around Snowdonia. The most famous being ‘Ty Hyll’ near Betws Y Coed. During the 18th century, a time of rapidly expanding population and poverty, it was generally agreed that a property could be built by squatters on common land so long as it was built within 24hrs, one day and one night. The test being that smoke had to emerge from the chimney before sunrise the following morning. The occupier was then allowed to claim a portion of the surrounding land. The boundary being set by the distance he could throw an axe from the new house.

Tan Y Wenallt, as was often the case, has been much improved subsequently however. And it’s most resent renovation has transformed it into a truly idyllic and luxurious holiday cottage.

Further details indoors

The house is a great mixture of old and new. The newly fitted kitchen boasts a large range cooker, oak units and granite worktops. The dining room has a large table which sits eight very comfortably. The kitchen is slightly elevated which allows the chef to oversee what’s needed on the table or, more importantly in our case, to check who is and isn’t eating their greens!

The bright and spacious conservatory overlooking the garden provides another option for eating. The kids will have more opportunity to hide their broccoli in here however!

The lounge, in contrast, is much more oldy worldy. Which is exactly how I’d want it. Whitewashed stone walls, giant oak ceiling trusses and inglenook fireplace creates an historic ambiance. The luxurious sofas, the tick of an old grandfather clock and the warmth of a real fire calms both body and mind.

Luckily, once you’ve woken up from your slumber in the lounge the bedrooms aren’t to far away. Two bedrooms on the ground floor. One with a double bed overlooking the garden and one with a set of bunk beds. Both share a ground floor toilet. Upstairs there’s a further two rooms. A large twin room with fantastic views over the extensive garden and the master bedroom with a king-size double bed. The main bathroom up stairs has a lovely free standing roll top bath.

About this location

The North Wales region

As well as castles, narrow gauge railways and historical mines, Snowdonia is also famous for all it’s adventure activities. A quick search on Google will help you find white water rafting, kite surfing, rock climbing, mountain bikeing and others, all within easy reach from this cottage.

Llanbedr

Tan-Y-Wenallt has a fantastic large and sprawling garden. The original owners must have been good axe throwers. Full of mature trees, large shrubs, fragrant rose bushes and heavy clematis, the garden is a fantastic place to explore.

Tan-Y-Wenallt is only a short walk from the pretty village of Llanbedr. First stop is Ty Mawr, a traditional welsh pub serving local ales and beer. A little further on is a second pub, The Vic, which has a fantastic beer garden on the banks of the river Artro. There’s also a grocery store, newsagents, post office and butchers in the village.

The beach is probably a little too far to walk if you’re carrying a Lillo. But Shell Island and other fantastic sandy beaches are only 5 minutes away in the car.

If you are a keen walker however, Cwm Nantcol, Cwm Bychan and the Rhinog Mountains are all right on your doorstep. Enough wildernesses to keep even the most enthusiastic walker satisfied.
