The North Wales / Snowdonia/Gwynedd region
Close to The Snowdonia National Park, Tywyn is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Whatever you're into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore.
This region of Wales is without doubt a 'hidden gem' with some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. This is a walker's paradise with Cader Idris just a few minutes drive away! Snowdon is only 60 minutes by car and the beautiful Coed Y Brenin Wood, with miles of mountain bike & walking tracks, is just 30 minutes drive.
Don't worry if you're not the active type, the effortless Mawddach Trail, featured in Julia Bradbury's 'Great Railway Walks' program is accessible to everyone and takes you on a journey along one of the UK's most spectacular estuaries, brimming with wildlife.
There are miles of beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches, as well as many local attractions, such as the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, which steams from Tywyn up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls. Just a few miles around the stunning Talyllyn Lake towards Corris, is the world renowned 'Centre for Alternative Technology' (or CAT) which is a fascinating place to visit and learn. Close to CAT is The Corris Craft Centre and King Arthurs Labyrinth, another must visit place.
The Tywyn area
Tywyn has a sunny west-facing 'Blue Flag' sandy beach. Don't miss the spectacular sunsets over the bay. From early Spring through till Autumn, dolphins and porpoise can be spotted close to the shore, an amazing sight to see! Its not unusual to see them on a daily basis in pods of up to 20. Tywyn is possibly the only place on the West Coast where you can park for FREE virtually right on the beach. There is level access to the town where there are supermarkets, shops, cafes, banks, a post office, cinema, health centre, cottage hospital, several churches, leisure centre and an indoor swimming pool. Just 5 minutes drive is the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey, with the famous Aberdovey Golf Course plus several good restaurants & pubs.
For watersport enthusiasts and visitors with families, there are uncrowded, sweeping, sandy beaches in Tywyn or Aberdovey (just a few minutes away). Depending on the conditions, Tywyn is a focal point for surfers & kayakers. Aberdovey is a well known wind surfing & sailing centre. Jet skiers are welcome in both resorts. Fishing trips can be arranged in Tywyn & Aberdovey all year round.
This area is full of history dating back to pre-historic times. Just get slightly off the beaten track on the dozens of public footpaths and you will come across standing stones, stone circles, abandoned farmhouses, castles & ancient churches.
Places within a just few miles NOT TO BE MISSED:
Aberdovey, lovely old fishing village, GOLF & SAILING haven, with many good restaurants, pubs & coffee shops.
St Cadvans Church in Tywyn dating back 1500 years with the Cadvan Stones, which are apparently the oldest known inscriptions of the Welsh language.
Dolgoch Falls, spectacular waterfalls and woodland walk, look out for fairies and witches!
Cregennan Lake near Arthog, stunning location, with views of the Mawddach Estuary.
The Barmouth Bridge, built by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the Mawddach, then explore Barmouth, with excellent beaches and the harbour. There are good shops, numerous coffee shops & pubs. The Last Inn & Davey Jones Locker are particularly good.
Cader Idris & Llyn Cau, most walkers agree is more scenic than Snowdon.
The Bearded Lake above Aberdovey, mystical place of legends, with amazing view of the Dovey Estuary.
The Dysynni River & reed beds. A wild life haven for geese, ducks and herons. Fishing with a permit.
Bird Rock. 500 years ago the sea came up to the rock, but the Cormorant still breed here. Also, look out for the ruined Iron Age fort near the top of the rock.
Tal-y-llyn Lake, just beautiful!
With all this and so much more, you can make a holiday to suit yourself.

Light, bright, contempory, beach house right on the edge of the sea, cant ask for more for a stunning holiday retreat, but there is more, log burner, balcony, comfy furniture, modern bathroom, sleepy beds and sea views. We were lucky enough to see a dolphin from the balcony, Aberdyfi is 5 mins by car, bus or train and has lovely restaurants and shops. Plenty of things to do, walking, swimming, surfing, beachcombing or just relaxing. Ideal holiday spot.

On arrival (after a very short walk from the train station) we found the house and let ourselves in with no problems at all - only to be absolutely stunned at how amazing this place is! The bedrooms are on the ground floor, the main bedroom looking out onto the garden and over the ocean - perfect for that 'sound of crashing waves' to fall asleep to. The bathroom was luxury (power shower- yes please!), and as we made our way upstairs we were left speechless, smiling like excited children. The lounge, a huge open plan room with an enormous sofa and TV, is light but cosy; a real home away from home. A gorgeous wood burner sits in the corner, perfect for snuggling up around of an evening whilst looking out over the beach. The balcony is the real gem here - we spent hours in the winter sunshine sitting out watching the sunsets - which are not to be missed! We literally planned our evenings around them!
The kitchen is brilliant, very well equipped - we made a huge beef wellington with a lovely local piece of beef from the butchers on the high street - need I say more?
We don't have kids but I'd say this place would be the perfect base for a family holiday - the beach is your back garden.
We explored the local countryside and visited many of the local attractions but always looked forward to getting back to The Beach Retreat - it's not just a place to sleep. Lovely beach-chic decor- the place is decked out to perfection - light and spacious but warm and cosy - perfect for summer or winter! We'll be returning without a doubt. Thanks so much Ceri and Holiday Lettings for an amazing weekend.

My partner and I stayed at The Beach Retreat in February and all we have talked about since then is our magical stay and all of the brilliant memories we made over that weekend. Luckily we had gorgeous weather, so we spent many hours sitting on the balcony reading and chatting with the sun on our faces. In the evenings we snuggled up and relaxed in the huge lounge on the sofa big enough for 10 of us, it's a real home away from home.
We kept ourselves busy during the day, walking and exploring the beach and the countryside, even taking a trip on the steam train - but we always found ourselves glad to be back 'home' at the beautiful townhouse on the beach.
We can't wait to get back there in the summer - we're dreaming of walking right onto the beach and cooling off for a dip in the sea when we get too hot relaxing in the beautiful garden. All we need now is the sun!
The biggest upside: THAT VIEW. Best trip we'eve every had in the UK. Perfect base for exploring the coast of Wales - if you can drag yourself away from this beautiful house and the view that is!
Thanks so much for having us, we'll definitely be back!
