“Superb cottage which is also dog friendly”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2018

This was our second visit to this outstanding cottage and hopefully not our last. Linda is a wonderful hostess who is there when needed ,The hot tub and log fire are brilliant as is the large dog friendly garden.We loved our walks in the nearby woods and Barmouth is a lovely resort with wonderful beaches and dog friendly pubs. We had a very relaxing week with our dog and would recommend

Owner's reply: Thank you! great to have people like yourselves keep returning as once is never enough, the area is as you have found outstanding with so much to see and do, hope to see you both and of course your four legged family member back here again very soon. Linda :-)

“Lovely getaway”

Reviewed 14 May 2018

A perfect getaway for my birthday!, so peaceful and quite. The hot tub was a bonus to wind down after a long walk. Linda was a lovely host and was always happy to help. Definitely recommend to friends and family

Owner's reply: Thank you! so glad your birthday break was what you had hoped and I would love to see you back at a future date. Linda :-)

What a great little cottage , we loved it , will definitely be returning Linda was a great hostess , thanks Linda see you next time

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind review looking forward to seeing you both again soon. Linda ;-)


Reviewed 14 Jan 2018

Despite visiting Talybont every year with family between the ages of about 8 and 16, and despite countless walks alongside the Ysgethin, this cute cottage is hidden a stone's throw from the river but I'd never saw it before. It has everything you need for a short stay (the only thing you'd need for a longer stay is a launderette) including an oven, microwave, kettle, all kitchen utensils, and even a dishwasher. You'll be sleeping in a lovely four post bed with wooden beams to give that true cottage feel. The heating system is wonderful but turning it down and using the log burner was lovely. The hot tub was absolutely brilliant. It maintains a temperature of between 37 and 40 even with the lid off for an hour (sorry Linda, we may have stayed in it for longer than recommend!) and you probably won't want to leave as you're in a dark sky area so the stars are very bright. We were lucky enough to go during a meteor shower and saw several of them shoot across the sky. As for the hostess, Linda, she is a truly lovely lady who has an excellent knowledge of the cottage, Talybont, and surrounding areas. She lives in the main part of the cottage but unless you needed her you wouldn't know she was there (for those worried about privacy). Will we be coming back? We are already working out when we both have the time off work to come back! Easily the best British holiday I've been on, and possibly the best holiday I have ever had. Thank you for sharing Llywyn Ynn Cottage Linda, a truly remarkable place.

Owner's reply: Thank you wow thats a lot to live up to... as you say and I sometimes even hear from local people "I never knew the cottage was there". It takes me back to when I first saw it and thought of a little oasis/sanctuary, secluded but not to far from all the area has to offer. Looking forward to welcoming you back. Linda :-)

“Superb cottage which is also dog friendly”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2017

We have been to many cottages but this one far surpassed them all.The facilities were top class and the hot tub was wonderful after a day out.Linda was very helpful if we had any problems .Our dog loved the enclosed garden and the walks in the woods behind the cottage, and the beaches were wonderful at the local pub was very good. We had a great holiday and will certainly be back

Owner's reply: This is heart warming to read especially as you have been to many cottages, I would love to welcome you both back - the walks in spring are especially wonderful with the wild garlic and bluebells..... Linda :-)

“Amazing little cottage”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2017

What can I say. A beautiful little cottage just outside of Barmouth. I booked this for my wife and I and we were not disappointed. The hot tub was in perfect condition, the cottage was very well equipped, the bed was comfortable, the shower was nice and hot and the sofas in reclined position really helped relax after a day's walking. Activities wise the driveway back onto a stream, follow it left and you can walk forever in to Snowdonia, go right, and within 50m you're at the local Yysgethn Inn (might have misspelt that). The food is amazing here and with over 30 varieties of whisky! Norbar is just down the road (15 min walk) and has some lovely ales, food and live music on some evenings. We walked in to Barmouth, spent the day in the beach with our dog and got drunk at the Talybont bar. We also rode the Mawddach Trail and enjoyed the scenery at the George III Hotel bar. A beautiful little cottage with a lovely owner Linda. We'll definitely be coming back.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments it really is heartwarming to hear that your stay here added to the experiences of what had been "a magical year so far", plenty more to come is my hope for your future together and I do hope you will be back. Linda :-)

“Lovely stay at Linda's cottage”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2017

We had an amazing three night stay in a beautiful peaceful quiant coattge. Great location surrounded by stunning landscape, many walks on which you can explore the local river. It isn't far away from the beach either. Best host ever and we'll definitely visit again.

Owner's reply: Glad to hear you will be back so many people do come back and I think it is because the area is so diverse, whatever you feel like doing it is here almost like a blank canvas waiting, beach, woodland, mountains your break your choice.... see you soon. Linda :-)


Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Fantastic. Well worth it, just a challenge to move beyond the hot tub. We're hoping to go back before too long.

Owner's reply: Thank you another loyal guest in the making, looking forward to seeing you both again in the not to far distant future,.The clear sky area credential awarded to this part of the world is especially mesmerising when viewed from the hot tub so do I understand the challenge. Linda :-)

“Just perfect, stunning cottage and garden and lovely host”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2016

This stunning cottage & garden was the most perfect getaway, I only wish we could have stayed for longer. Linda was the perfect host with lots of local knowledge and recommendations. The wine and extras were such a lovely touch. The hot tub was amazing!! The scenery and coastline is just stunning. The local bars we tried were great and Tony's pizza is a definite must. All in all it was the perfect break and we are looking forward to coming back Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Hope to see you soon. Helen and Andy :-)

Owner's reply: "We could have stayed for longer" means you will definately be back so its something I love to hear, thank you so much for your lovely comments much appreciated, I do try! Linda :-)
