The North Wales region

Dyffryn Ardudwy

Dyffryn Ardudwy

Dyffryn Ardudwy is a village with population of 1,700, situated on the A496 coastal road between Barmouth and Harlech and at the foot of Moelfre part of the Rhinog range.

There are a number prehistoric cromlechs (tombs) around the village and date from around 4,000 BC. Nearby is an avenue which was built by the powerful Vaughan dynasty (who were instrumental in placing Henry VII of England on the throne in 1485). The exisitng mansion was built in 1576. Visitors may walk up the lane, round perimiter of the estate and on towards the summit of Moelfre.

There is an excellent general store (including Post Office) just 40yds from the cottage and London Stores (approx 400yds) which boasts an award winning butcher.


Barmouth

Barmouth is located on the west coast of Wales between a mountain range and sea on the mouth of the river Mawddach. It is one of the beautiful locations in Wales lying in the south west corner of Snowdonia National Park. Panorama walk can be reached via steep steps between cottages in the town centre and the walk across the railway bridge affords spectacular views.

Barmouth is renowned for it's quality of beaches which stretch for miles. It is also home to the Fairbourne & Barmouth Railway track. A ferry takes you across the estuary to Penrhyn Point where the narrow gauge railway greets you for the journey to Fairbourne. If the weather is fine, walk across the bridge, following the sea wall round to Penrhyn Point and catch the ferry back to Barmouth harbour.

There are excellent eating places along the Barmouth front and nearby 'The Last Inn' (highly rated).

The Mawddach estuary is an area of outstanding natural beauty and there are walks to suit all, including the former track of the Cambrian Coast line from Dolgellau to Barmouth (South end of the bridge).

“Very nice cottage”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2013

Ty Uchaf is cosy and pleasant to stay in. Never seen as many games , DVD's etc to keep the children occupied in any other cottage we have stayed in, which for a damp October stay was quite important, as for most of the week I had four grandchildren age 14. 9. 6 and five to keep occupied and happy as my daughter had to go back to work. Having a good internet connection was another plus. The station was in easy walking distance for us and we made good use of this to go up and down the line. Looking forward to staying in summer as the beach looked lovely though it is a twenty minute walk from the cottage, perfectly acceptable for my lot. Beds and pillows comfy with good quality linen, kitchen well equipped, the only downside was with it being dark evenings I was cooking with the light behind me so couldn't see what I was doing at the stove, in summer that wouldn't be a problem as the light would be coming in the windows on to the stove . Well equipped separate utility room. All together a very nice cottage at a very reasonable price. Thank you Bob and Rosie Esterbrook

“Fantastic Cottage with everything you need.”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2013

Had a great stay at the cottage, it had lots of character and plenty of room. Just the right distance to be out of the way but close enough to get to the beaches and Barmouth town. Having Internet access at the cottage was a real bonus. There was everything you could want and more, the photos do not do it justice. Would definitely book another visit and recommend. The Owner was extremely helpful with our stay. :)

“Lovely traditional cottage ideally located for walking and exploring”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

We used the cottage as a base for walking Cadir Idris and other local mountains as well as exploring Portmeirion, Barmouth and Harlech. There were 4 adults in the group (one couple and 2 singles) and the layout of the cottage worked really well. There were plenty of heaters for the chilly evenings, the beds were very comfortable and the electric blankets were an added bonus. The modern bathroom was great with a wonderful shower as well as a bath. The garden in particular was lovely on an evening - private and catching the afternoon and late evening sun. The cottage made a great base and was excellent value.

“Nice character cottage in a good location and great value for money”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

Went with the wife and our two young kids and we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is in a good location to explore the surrounding area and is only a short drive from the beach. Local shops and two kids play parks in the village were a welcome bonus and there is also a supermarket in nearby Barmouth where you can stock up on supplies. The cottage itself was very clean and well presented and the modern shower room was great after a day exploring . An adjoining room to our own, which had bunk beds, was perfect for our kids allowing us to keep tabs on them during the night. Broadband is also available in the cottage at no extra charge and this was really useful in helping us to plan days out and for keeping in touch with the outside world. For what it costs I think this cottage is great value for money we are planning to go back soon.

“Character cottage with period charm and modern comforts.”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2013

Lovely cottage with with lots of charm and character. All the feel of an old Welsh cottage but with lovely comfortable beds and a luxurious modern bathroom. A very homely feel, more like stopping at a friends place than a rented cottage. My wife and i have visited several times. Lovely in the summer with a nice patio which catches the sun and really nice in the winter where it's a great place to escape from the everyday grind. We stopped for a few days over Christmas with my parents and we all had a great time. Also the people we meet in the village are very friendly and the Supermarket/butchers is great value. We find it just far enough away from the busier Barmouth where we can spend the day then retire back to our cosy cottage. Also it's great value for money!

“Great value in an ideal location to explore North Wales”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2013

The cottage has everything needed for a holiday including a useful outhouse for storing pushchairs/buggies & wet gear. Inside, it's cosy and warming and everything was clean and tidy. With regards to location, it's ideal for the beach or walking in Snowdonia and the towns of Barmouth and Harlech are only short drives away. There's even a bus stop just outside the cottage in case you don't want to drive anywhere! The best part of staying here is the value for money. Compared to other cottages/static caravan's in the area, it's great value. The only slight downside is parking, but once you've negotiated the short pathway up to cottage it becomes easier the more you do it. Besides, there's a free public car park a minutes walk away which is much easier to park in.

“quaint stone traditional cottage”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2013

Lovely stone built cottage set in an ideal position for discovering Mid Wales. Cottage kept traditional internally and has all facilities you need to make the stay relaxing. In winter there are plenty of heaters and electric blankets to combat the cold to make it cosy. Easy reach to Barmouth, 10 minutes walk to beach, only downside is no supermarket nearby- nearest is a Coop in Barmouth but there is a big Tesco at Porthmadog about 30 minutes away.
