Nestled in the foothills of Cader Idris, in the spectacular Dysynni Valley, rests the beautiful Llanfihangel-y-Pennant. This rural hamlet is steeped in Welsh history and culture including the ancient St Michael's Church, Castell y Bere, and Mary Jones Memorial. Old Tyn-y-Fach is an 18th century, Grade II listed cottage. Nestled by a shallow stream, it backs onto a working farm, thus not only offering spectacular mountain and valley views, but also day to day farm life (lambing, sheep shearing, and working sheep dogs). It looks cosy and welcoming all year round, with its slate roof, white walls, and feature windows. Inside, the house has many original features including exposed oak beams, slate floors, fireplaces and deep windows. There are three very good sized bedrooms, one double, one twin, and the third, very large room, has twin beds and a futon. There are two log burning stoves, electric storage heaters, underfloor heating, electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, a bathroom, a separate toilet, and a shower room.

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 Michaels 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 Arthurs Labyrinth is only 10 miles away.
