The North Wales region

Few places in Britain offer such an extraordinary diversity of landscape and habitat in such a small geographical space as this unique and beautiful part of the Snowdonia National Park

The streams which rise high on the South and Eastern slopes of Cadar Idris fall nearly three thousand feet in a little over ten miles before entering the sea at Tywyn. On this short journey they flow from rugged mountain and wild moorland, down through steep oak woods, fertile pastures, salt marsh, tidal lake, and finally sea-shore.

Tyn-y-Fach is located in the heart of Dysynni Valley, which in itself is located in the southern part of Snowdonia National Park, and thus provides both stunning views down the valley as well as up at the mountains. Located on a quiet no through road it offers the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, with walks and wildlife on your doorstep, and beaches plus a multitude of other holiday attractions just a short drive away.


There are lots of things to do in the local area including walking and mountain biking literally from the doorstep, and several beautiful beaches within a 15 minute drive.

Other attractions include Fishing 5 miles away at Tal-y-Llyn lake, Pony Trekking 15 miles away at Bwlchgwyn Farm, Aberdovey Golf Club 12 miles away, St Michael's Church is only half a mile away, Castell-y-Bere is an ancient castle within a mile of the cottage, Talyllyn Steam Railway is only 3 miles away, and King Arthur's Labyrinth is only 10 miles away.

"Everything one could want in a holiday."

We stayed at Tyn-y-Fach during the last week of July and we were all very pleased with the cottage. It is very 'olde worlde' with stone floors and low beams but has been sympathetically mode… More

"Great cottage in a beautiful location"

Tyn-y-Fach is in a stunningly beautiful and remote location. As soon as we turned the key in the door we started to absorb its atmosphere.

The exposed beams and stone floor exuded history which made us inquisitive; how old is the cottage, how many people have lived here, and who was it built for?

The cottage is very homely and comfortably furnished and we felt very welcome.
The information booklet was comprehensive and the sheets and maps of walks on the doorstep were very useful.

We very much enjoyed our weekend here and would definitely make a return visit.
