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! It's 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 pictureque 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 wildlife 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.

We had a wonderful week at Swn Y Tonnau. We stayed for a week with our 3 year old and 11 month old and grandparents also came to stay for a night.
The house is beautifully presented - the bedrooms have lovely furnishings and decor and the ensuite shower room attached to the master bedroom was an unexpected bonus. As well as the 2 bedrooms, there is a chair upstairs which turns into a single bed and a double sofa bed downstairs - we all slept comfortably upstairs without even needing to use the sofa bed downstairs when grandparents stayed.
For our baby, there was a high chair, stairgates at the top and bottom of the stairs and a travel cot which was far nicer than the one we have at home! The outside area is also enclosed, making it safe for the children to play outside.
It was lovely to arrive and have everything you need already in the house eg toilet rolls, washing up liquid, charcoal for the BBQ, which is often not the case with holiday lets. The kitchen is really well equipped and the summer house in the garden has loads of things for the children and the beach eg chairs, beach games, crabbing gear.
Location is great too - the beach, railway station and playground are only a few minutes walk and there are lots of lovely places to visit nearby. In the kitchen, there's an information folder, which the owners have put a lot of effort into - it's clear they that they want to do all they can to help their guests have a wonderful holiday...and we certainly did!
We've stayed in lots of self catering cottages and holiday lets and I'd highly recommend this one.

We were looking for somewhere near the sea... This was on the opposite side of the street that ran alongside the sea front! Absolutely perfect location for what we wanted, our dog was allowed, and our 12 month old baby was catered for with a cot, high chair, and stair gates.
The accomodation was very spacious, really well presented with all the facilities you could want (3 TV's!), with the possible exception of Wifi internet - the mobile internet was very poor here, and I work in IT so I did miss the internet!
We had a lovely stay, the village/town has a good supermarket, a fair few restaurants/take outs, and for us we would definately go back again.
There was no garden as it was all an outside patio, but this didn't matter at all with the beach being so close by for our dog! Highly recommended!
