Location description from owner

The North Wales region

Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn provide the ideal holiday destination from which to explore the fantastic beaches, beautiful mountains, picturesque villages, and the host of activities Northwest Wales has to offer. An excellent range of attractions awaits visitors to Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn, with wildlife centres, outdoor activities, train trips, historic sites, museums, fine gardens, golf and more to choose from.

Several beautiful beaches are within easy walking distance along the well maintained coastal path leading directly from the village centre. Further afield Black Rock Sands is located approximately two miles west. In addition Harlech, Abersoch and Criccieth beaches are only a short drive away.

The Snowdonia National Park begins a mere 2 miles from Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn and is a magnificent playground for those who love walking, mountain climbing or just scenery watching.

The Park covers 823 square miles of diverse landscapes. As well as being the largest National Park in Wales, Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Beddgelert (8miles).

Snowdonia is renowned for being a very special place for walkers with mountain peaks, lakes, forests, rivers and coastal areas. The National Park is working on developing a network of walks and more will be added every year. In addition Snowdonia National Park has a vast amount of cycling and mountain biking trails suitable for all abilities. The Park also hosts other outdoor activities such as white water rafting and climbing.

Portmeirion is a popular tourist village located just outside of Porthmadog, approximately 3 miles from Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn. It is Wales’ 3rd largest visitor attraction attracting 250, 000 visitors in 2009.

Portmeirion was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, which is now is now acknowledged as a unique architectural work of art. The village is now owned by a charitable trust.

The village stands on a rugged cliff top on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay. It is surrounded by 145 acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. The village has always been run as a hotel, which uses the majority of the buildings as hotel rooms, together with shops, a cafe, tea-room, and restaurant.

Portmeirion has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in the 1960s television show The Prisoner. The show became a cult classic, and fans continue to visit Portmeirion, which hosts annual Prisoner fan conventions.

Further afield are the attractive towns of Criccieth, Beddgelert, Harlech, Pwllheli, Nefyn and Abersoch.

Borth-y-Gest

Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn are ideally situated in the picturesque coastal Victorian village of Borth-y-Gest.

Borth-y-Gest is located to the east of the popular Llyn Peninsular and adjacent west of the Snowdonia National Park.

This pretty unspoilt village has retained its Victorian charm with colourful terraced houses fronting onto a horseshoe-shaped promenade that skirts the perimeter of this sheltered bay where small boats are moored.

Amenities in the village include a shop, tea room, petrol station and bistro restaurant all of which overlook the harbour. A short 15 minute walk along the coastal path to the east takes you to the popular tourist town of Porthmadog where there is a extensive range of cafes, shops and pubs.

The views from Borth-y-Gest are spectacular with a panorama sweeping across Tremadog Bay to the Rhinog Mountains to the south, and the Moelwyn Mountains to the east. The views also include the wooded peninsula of the Italian style village of Portmeirion, designed by the famous Welsh architect, Sir Clough William-Ellis in 1925.

Several beautiful beaches are within easy walking distance along the well maintained coastal path leading directly from the village centre. The sea is safe to swim on a low to incoming tide.

The sands at Borth-y-Gest are of particular interest to birdwatchers as they are home to a wide variety of sp
ecies of birds including oystercatchers, redshanks and curlew, as well as winter visitors such as goldeneye, great crested grebe and wigeon. Summer brings flocks of sandwich terns.

Meanwhile the village is largely surrounded by woodland, much of it deciduous and dominated by ancient Welsh oaks. Directly to the rear of Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn is Parc y Borth nature reserve. Parc y Borth woods is a local nature reserve long popular with walkers and ornithologists, and among the birdlife you might be lucky to spot green woodpeckers, tawny owls and pied flycatchers. An extensive network of paths will lead you from a public footpath running alongside Tegfryn through the woods to the top of a crag with extensive views of the Glaslyn and Dwyryd estuaries.

The road leading into Borth-y-Gest is a no-through road so that the roads are very quiet, being occupied by local traffic only.

A 15 minute walk to the east will take you into the popular harbour town of Porthmadog where there is a large selection of shops and restaurants. A harbour town with an impressive marina is situated on the Glaslyn Estuary. Porthmadog is rich in maritime history and in times gone by, it was a vital, busy shipping port for the international slate trade, brought down from Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Both the Welsh Highland Railway and Ffestiniog Railway can be boarded at Porthmadog.

The stunning location of the Porthmadog golf club is only one mile from Bryn Gwyn and Tegfryn. The links golf course offers an intriguing mixture of heathlands and linksland for the discerning golfer.

“Two quality properties with outstanding views.”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

I hired these 2 properties for an extended family party to celebrate a 50th and a 16th birthday, the groups ages ranged from 2 years to 72 years. These houses have been lovingly restored to provide 2 luxury holiday homes, furnished and equipped throughout with quality items. With everything provided for a very comfortable stay. Both properties were very clean and tidy. The views from the properties are outstanding, even on cloudy March days! I hope to return sometime soon, a weekend just wasn't long enough to explore this beautiful area. Thank you Jane for your helpfulness throughout the booking process.

“Wonderful family house”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2012

Wonderful family holiday spent in Tegfryn. House has been recently refurbished to a very high standard - tastefully decorated, lovely cosy feel, all mod cons. Rooms are very spacious and bright with amazing views from the front windows and balcony. Having 2 lounges was great - our 12 year old son was very happy to play on the wii in the back room and we were happy to have peace and quiet in the front! Borth-Y-Gest is a lovely tranquil location where time stands still. Close enough to Porthmadog if you want somewhere busier - we walked it in 15 mins. Will definitely be returning to Tegfryn in the future and would recommend this holiday home to anyone.
